What is Virgin Hair?
Virgin Hair is human hair that is gathered from various sources. Each bundle may contain hair from several donors.

After raw hair is sewn into wefts, the hair is wrapped around metal rods and steamed to create unique wave patterns and dyed to achieve various colors.
TIP: All RAW hair is virgin, but not all virgin hair is raw!
