Available types of hair
Indian Human (default)
Our long staple of Indian supply will hopefully remain reliable, and we continue to source this from long standing partners. Our source remains as ethical as it always was, which is individual hairs harvested from voluntary hair brushing by people inside India, later chemically processed into top grade product for wig making. No pony tails cut off, no religious tonsuring, no prisoner hair, no cadaver hair, no drain hair, no involuntary harvesting from donors under questionable circumstances. We see evidence that it is still the same Indian hair.
Our synthetic "hair "is Kanekalon® type K7 Modacrylic Fiber, which is a permanently self-extinguishing, melt-resistant “hair” with a limiting oxygen index of 28, and is a modern variety of a basic product invented in Japan in 1957. Wave and curl can be set or reset in hot water rather than with chemical perms. We cannot bleach the knots so when brown or black it is not ideal for lace bases (which have exposed knotting). Synthetic gray can brightly reflect UV "black light". When used with care it will outlast human hair. It is always available and is unaffected by the politics or regulation of human hair supply.
We can no longer guarantee the authenticity or ethical source of the following hair types:
Remy Indian, European Remy, Virgin hair, Chinese straight, Yaki Texture, Mongolian, Russian, Indonesian, Brazilian.
We are therefore not making them available.
Colors and pricing
As of 2020, some lighter hair colors carry a surcharge. The custom order form will add $30 for colors #22R, #30R, #60RYH, #613. Human gray costs +$30 also. This is due to shortages that became apparent in 2020 and may change when we resume mass production of custom units.
Black hair and lace
If you want jet black color #1, please note that knot bleaching is ineffective on color #1. We advise that you choose a membrane base rather than lace if you want #1 black, or go with color #1B if you insist on lace.
60RYH white hair
When you receive this human gray hair, it might look yellow. This is just a starting point and it is not ready to use yet. Shampooing with a blond (purple) shampoo will make it white Then you may need to apply a toner to get your desired shade of gray, (or bright fashion color if you prefer). If you are confident you will not be in UV black light (eg halloween/nightclub), synthetic gray is easier to manage.
Knot bleaching (lace hairpieces)
We bleach knots enough to help hide them, but not so much that the hair sheds too fast. It’s a narrow target range and we usually hit the sweet spot.
Spot highlights are areas of a lighter color hair interspersed with the darker color hair. They can look like stripes because the hair is all one color from knot to tip. They are named for the spotty color that results underneath the lace. These highlights have alarmed some clients so we discourage ordering factory highlights.
Even highlights are just a color change. e.g. color #2 with 50% even highlights in color #4 will look the same as color #3. You can potentially get a wrong color by guessing these. It is better to provide a good color sample for custom matching.
Real highlights are done afterwards by your stylist/colorist. They can be expensive but this is how to get correct expert highlighting and they will not have to go all the way down to the knot, so no stripes.
