Great extensions are a great investment! Whether you want to play with textures, switch up your natural style or serve fierce weekly looks to your followers, hair extensions have become as neccessary and inseperable from us as even our phones! However, many of us do not truly understood the difference between the hair grades used to make these hair extensions. This information can be extremely valuable when deciding which extensions buy based on your needs and most importantly, your BUDGET!
So! We've decieded to make the process a bit easier by breaking the down the differences in hair grades available in most markets:
Grade 4A and 5A
This grade of hair is typically "Beauty Supply Store" hair. Often synthetic or mixed with synthetic fibers, this hair sheds and tagles terribly as it has stripped cuticles, is more on the thinner side and easily fuses with you actual hair, making it hard to get them off. If installing this hair grade, it is advisable not to go beyond 12 inches due to the amount of tangling and matting.
This is the quality that is used by most women. All its cuticle are aligned in one direction has medium thickness and can only be dyed to a medium blonde color. If taken good care of, such hair extensions should last you u to or 9 months.
If on a budget, this is the hair to use for the wow factor.
Grade 7A has its cuticles aligned, tangles less, is thick and strong. It is recommended to use a detangling shampoo on such hair every 2-3 months for them to last you up to 12 months or longer if well taken care of. Check out our DOLL Collection to get this hair!
