Since the dawn of time, Human hair extensions have been around. From doll hair, the first hair extensions were made. They could not be easily cared for were, shredded, synthetic and matted up.
These days, the deep wave hair has become quite popular. Well, these extensions that provide almost a natural look have plenty of benefits.
However, there are plenty of different types of them available which is the problem with the human hair extensions. Now, all of them demand different methods of maintenance as they have different characteristics.
Using animal hair, mainly yak was the next best invention or so once thought. It did so for a price although this was much cheaper to import and purchase. There was a musky, wretched smell to the weaves or extensions that could not be washed out.
Along with women that were allergic to yak for women this smell became too much to deal with.
The image became even more important with more and more African women entering the film and music industry in the 1950s.
African women wanted to wear all the latest deep wave human hair and put their best foot forward that their peer Caucasian women were sporting. With the introduction of real human hair weaves these hairstyles only became achievable.
From young Indian women or young Chinese women, the weaves were made of real human hair. Of course, to India and China, the hair donations are not just limited. Used in making extensions, European hair is also a very popular type of real human hair. From women in Russia, a lot of European hair is collected.
In a "virgin" state Top dollar is paid for hair; meaning by having it relaxed, perming it or coloring it the hair has never been chemically treated.
Many Caucasians including most actresses wear deep wave hair bundles although Weaves are not only popular within the African American community. From one hairstyle extreme to the next the extensions allow a person to go.
The demand for extensions becomes extremely high with these. Many companies are creating hybrid weaves to help lower the costs of extensions and weaves. Closely resembling and mimicking human hair these feature synthetic materials.
