What is virgin cuticle hair?

The highest quality available, virgin hair is completely natural and unprocessed cuticle hair, free from any chemicals such as relaxer, perm, silicone, or color dyes. All the hair remains in the same direction from root to tip and comes from a single donor. The cuticle is the exterior shell (composed of transparent, overlapping, protective scale-like cells) of the hair. The cuticle protects the inner structure of the hair. With this cuticle hair the hair is preserved (no damage to the cuticles or the true structure of the hair) cuticles are kept intact and each hair strand is kept in one direction. In lower grades of hair the cuticle is stripped away with acid and then the hair is coated with a fake cuticle: silicone The majority of human hair sold over the counter is non-cuticle hair (lower grades). Typically, donor hair is mixed with other hair types destined for hair extension production. The major problem with this type of process is there’s no care taken to ensure that the cuticles of hair from a specific donor remain aligned in the same direction. To combat this problem, most donor hair is stripped of cuticle by getting an acid bath. Silicone is then applied where the cuticles previously were. This gives the hair a shiny look. However, after extensions are washed, the silicone wears off and the hair tangles and mats easily, since the cuticles are not all facing the same direction. With virgin hair the cuticle is always going in one direction as on a natural head of hair, so the hairs remain undisturbed, making then less likely to tangle, more durable, and easier to comb.
