If you’re looking for a compliment to your free-flowing waves then the Raw Indian closure is for you! It maintains being wavy without too much tightness and can be straightened in minutes without the damage.
- First, check for the presence of the hair cuticle. The hair strand should feel smooth as you run your hand down to the ends of the hair. But, you should also feel at bit of resistance as you run your fingers from the bottom back up towards the weft. This will let you know that the cuticles have not been stripped and processed.
- Conduct A Burn Test. Simply cut a strand of hair and put it on a burning flame using a lighter or matches. Real hair turns into ash when its burned. Blow the hair cool, then pull a few pieces of the burned hair from the weft and rub it between your fingers. The result as I said, should be a dark color ash. If it's synthetic hair, then it will turn into a sticky texture which will harden when it cools down. Some companies use lesser quality hair such as synthetics to mix in with the real human hair. These products are referred to as fillers. So make sure your not feeling any hard strands of hair mixed into the ash. So the take away is, human hair will immediately catch fire, burn nearly instantly, and smell like burning hair. While synthetic melts into a sticky texture that hardens.
- The Smell Test. When you first receive your hair, give it a quick sniff. If it smell like chemicals or corn chips then you might have a problem. You may want to do a quick internet search for getting the smell out of hair extensions. You may not be able to tell, for certain if the hair is real raw hair or not from smelling alone, but how the hair smells is a real indicator of the hair and hair company’s quality. Another thing to consider is the overall condition of the hair. Without going to deep into this, I would always recommend washing your raw hair bundles in a sulfate free shampoo and a good conditioner. I would do this even if a company says they have a cleansing system for their bundles. You want the piece of mind of knowing that no dirt or residue from the donor(s) was left behind in the hair after it was cultivated.
