FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Q -Is your hair actual real human hair?

Absolutely, all our hair is taken from a human hair donor therefore you will find only natural Human Hair type with intact cuticles.

 

Q -What is virgin hair? 

Virgin Hair refers to hair that is completely unprocessed, and intact. To qualify as virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached or chemically processed in any way. This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction. Usually, it also means that the hair has not been blow-dried, or exposed to harsh agents.The harvesting process for virgin hair is more time consuming and meticulous, which adds to the premium value of virgin hair. Virgin hair can come from any person and any country, but some of the most popular sources include India, Malaysia, South America and Eastern Europe.

 

-What is weft?

Wefts are Strands of hair which have been sewn together along one edge to create a line of hair to either sew or bonded.

 

Q -What is the difference between machine and hand weft?

Machine weft, the weft is sewed with an industrial machine. Machine wefted hair is fed into a machine and weaved tightly into the seam. It’s of very high quality, solid and regular sewing; consequently you can cut the weft band without losing substantial hair. However, we do advise that minimal cutting of the hair will bring out the best results.

Hand weft is simply tied by hand, this is a completely manual process which requires custom attention to each weave. Our hand tied weaves are sold at premium prices as a result of this process. The weft of hand tied weaves cannot be cut without loosing substantial amount of hair.

 

Q -How is the hair sold? 

We, Khairmax sell our hair in Full or half packs.

We ensure that we weigh every pack to at least 100g for a Full pack or 50g for Half pack.

 

Q -How many packs will it take to complete a full head?

Typicaly you will require 3-4 packs (300g - 400g) to complete a full head depending upon the look you are trying to achieve and the chosen lengths

The longer the length the more packs that will be required for a full head.

If you are using the longer lengths, i.e. 22 inches and upward, then you may require more packs  This is because the longer the length of hair is, the shorter the weft is going to be.  You won't be able to achieve as many "tracks" from a long length (20-30 inch) as you will from a short or medium length (10-18 inch).
