Everything You Need To Know About Brazilian Virgin Hair Extensions

Hair extensions are used to lengthen a person’s hair by using artificial or human hair and connecting it to the person’s hair. There are many ways to extend hair. The main methods are the Tape-in method, Bonding and sealing method, micro rings and the Clipped-on hair extensions. Some methods carry potential risks such as the bonding and sealing method causing traction alopecia (loss of natural hair). From the above mentioned methods, the clipped-on hair extensions are most versatile and effective. It is temporary and is effective without any side effects. The section of hair has clips sewn onto them. Normally a set of hair extensions has 8 strips of hair (human or artificial) with width varying from 2 to 8 inches. These types of extensions can be worn throughout the day, but they must be removed at night before sleeping. It can be worn for special occasions or for daily use as well. This is how versatile these types of hair extensions are. The main types of hair used in manufacturing are either natural or synthetic. In natural hair we have Indian, Brazilian, Chinese, Indonesian, European and Brazilian. The names are indicative of the place and/or the place from which the hair is imported. For example Indian hair is imported from India, where the hair is donated for religious purposes in temples.

When it comes to Brazilian Virgin hair extensions, there are many confusions that arise among the people. Firstly, Brazilian hair does not mean that it is derived from Brazilian women. This is incorrect, as Malaysia has a multicultural population with many ethnicity from various countries. Most of Malaysia’s population is made up of Indian and Chinese people. So technically, Brazilian Hair is actually Indian and Chinese for the most part. Also considering the word “Virgin” in Brazilian Virgin hair, it’s meaning is often misunderstood by people. It is a popular misconception that Virgin hair is the hair taken from the head of a virgin girl. This is wrong because the person donating the hair may or may not be a virgin. The real meaning of the term lies in the processes the hair is put through before making hair extensions out of them. The hair is cleaned and may be sent to a factory to be treated by acid. This is done to remove the cuticles (or the tip) of the hair to reduce the tangling of the hair. This type of hair is called processed hair. The hair that does not go through acid treatments, dyeing, bleaching or straightening is called “Virgin” hair. It is taken from a single hair donor, has intact cuticles and run in one direction only. The hair has not been exposed to cigarette smoke or other harsh agents, neither has it been blow dried. Hence, Brazilian Virgin hair is the hair imported from Brazil, that hasn’t been treated with chemicals or processed in any way.

If you want a permanent fix for getting and keeping shiny hair, changing your diet may be the answer. Eating plenty of fish like salmon and mackerel make not only hair stronger and shinier, but also improve skin because of the food’s fatty acids and protein. Similarly, eating plenty of nuts have the same effect because of their omega 3 proteins and biotin content. However, the most important diet change is drinking an abundance of water. The more water you drink, the healthier your hair and your whole body will be. Water hydrates your entire body and flushes out toxins that can take away from your hair’s shine.

Another tip to keep hair shiny and healthy is avoiding putting heat on it, like straightening and curling irons as well as blow dryers. Applying heat to your hair makes it dry and thin and takes away natural oils that make hair shiny. You don’t have to completely stop using heat, but reducing the amount of times you style your hair can make a significant difference in it’s health.

Keeping hair shiny and healthy is not always easy and requires work, but these tips will definitely start you on the path to super shiny hair! With hair masks, diet changes, and reducing heat use you will see a difference in your hair’s health in no time.
