THIS ARTICLE WILL EXPLAIN YOU QUALITY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ASIAN, INDIAN AND EUROPEAN HUMAN HAIR EXTENSIONS

Relatively low price human hair extensions are one of the best ways to get the natural look when you are going to have hair extensions added. However, with different hair ethnicity it feels differently and if you happen to have extensions where the hair texture is completely different, it could actually make your hair look very unnatural. For example, if you have very thin hair, having Asian hair, which is the thickest type of hair added as extensions may not work well for your type of hair, so it is important to understand the differences in the types of hair.

Commonly used human hair for hair extensions comes from Indian, Asian, and European, but it is important to note the differences, so you and your hair stylist can make the best decision for your extensions.

ASIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS

First, Asian hair is typically thick, straight, black or very dark brown in colour. Moreover, Asian hair is very strong; in fact, they can withstand chemicals and heat better than other types of hair. Typically, when Asian hair extensions are used for someone with thinner hair, they have to be chemically made thinner so that hair extensions match closer to the hair being attached to.

INDIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS

Indian hair extensions come in a variety of different types that commonly include fine, medium, thick, straight, wavy, curly, and thick. For the most part, Indian women don’t have their hair chemically processed, so it remains in what is referred to as the virgin state.  Many Indian women donate their hair as a way of giving thanks when they get married.

EUROPEAN HAIR EXTENSIONS

European hair is also of a smaller diameter and comes in a variety of colours and textures. Some women in Russia do not chemically treat their hair so it is often in a virgin state when it is donated. Both European and Russian hair is in the shortest supply and therefore is typically higher in price to find extensions than Indian or Asian hair.

It is not uncommon for many hairstylists to blend different textures of hair with yours to give it a unique texture of its own that feels very light and natural. You can get the human hair extensions in straight, curly, or wavy. It comes in a variety of colours and textures to make it very natural feeling when you have the extensions added.
