What is Raw Hair?
Raw virgin hair is unprocessed, untouched single donor hair donated in the hair temples of South east Asia as a part of religious sacrifice. It’s cleaned, sanitized, and wefted once collected and packaged to be sold. This hair is the same as your regular hair, it can be washed dried curled and styled to your liking as it is very versatile.
What does the term “wefted” mean?
Wefted hair is hair used for weaving. It is sewn or bonded (with special bonding glue) into a track/braid ready for the weaving process. A weft looks like a curtain or hair stitched together along the top.
- Can the weft be cut?
Yes. Our wefts are reinforced and made by a machine. They can be cut without unraveling. We do not suggest cutting our weft.

- How much does each bundle weight?
Each bundle is weighted between 3.2-3.5oz.
- Will each weft be the same length?
Virgin Hair is first weighted 3.2-3.5oz and hand sewed on a weft, so the wefts will be different between each bundle.
Shampoo and condition your raw hair using lukewarm water weekly. Doing so will prevent sweat and dirt from building up in your tresses and also prevents tangling. Post cleansing, apply some leave-in conditioner at the ends and work it upwards towards the roots. Treat this hair like your own hair. Use good quality shampoo and conditioning products. Conditioning your hair is very important to keep it soft and manageable. We recommend using a deep conditioner on your virgin hair once per week, but avoid using oil or heavy styling products.
Just like you comb your natural hair, it’s important to gently comb raw hair as well after each wash every day. It is suggested to begin at the roots and work all the way up, one part at a time, to the roots. Keep the hair moist with the help of a spray bottle to ease out the process and minimize breakage.
Hair extensions must be left to air dry for best quality. However if you do blow dry it use cool air.
Morning and night care:
We advise that you comb your hair every morning. Gently brush your hair from the ends towards your scalp. You must NEVER sleep on wet hair. Sleeping on wet hair is known to matte hair that makes it very difficult to keep the hair in its best state.
- Does the hair appear natural?
The hair appears to be very natural! People can their fingers through your hair and won’t notice the difference!
Could this hair be colored?
Yes you can, hair can be bleached but please note if you do bleach it to #613 platinum blonde that hair will be easier to break being that the hair bonds are broken.
Always remember Virgin Hair is the most luxurious hair extension on the market. Each bundle can slightly vary in texture and wave pattern since it comes from different donors. NO two bundles are exactly the same.
