There are four basic types of human hair used in hair extensions: Indonesian, European, Indian and Chinese. However, the origin of the hair is not the only factor. The processing technique is related to the quality and strength of the end-product.
The chemicals required, to strip and sanitise away the natural colour to produce different colours and curl patterns, are extremely strong and can affect the integrity of the hair depending on which type of method was used. However, if a higher quality of chemicals and a more artful approach is used during the processing technique, then the results are a higher quality product and therefore more expensive.

With cuticles all running in the same direction, tangling is significantly reduced, and hair looks and feels silkier. It is imperative to only use hair care products specially developed for highly processed human hair.
