What is the differences between 10AAA virgin hair, 9AAA virgin hair and 8AAA virgin hair?
All of our units come with 100% Virgin Human Hair. This hair can have high heat applied and more. We offer 3 levels of virgin human hair.
10 AAA - This hair is the top virgin quality hair on the market. It can be colored and bleached and will last 3-4 years. This hair comes from women who have never colored their hair. Therefore it can take coloring and bleaching well and still allows the hair to last a long time. The wefts are triple reinforced, therefore shedding will be very minimal. The hair comes from younger donors therefore there will be no grey hairs or only a couple of strands or grey. The cuticles are aligned, which allows no matting or tangling.
9AAA - This hair can be colored up to a light brown but should not be bleached blonde. It will last 1.5 to 2 years. The wefts are double reinforced therefore you will experience minimal shedding. You may see more grey hairs than the 10AAA. The cuticles are aligned, therefore there will be no matting or tangling.
8AAA- This hair should not be colored or bleached. It will last 9 months. The wefts are not reinforced. This hair comes from older donors who may have colored/bleached their hair at some point. Though this hair will color if attempted, we do not recommend coloring or bleaching this hair as this can decrease the lifespan of it. The cuticles are aligned, you will experience no matting or tangling.
*Note: Curly/Kinky Curly hair is higher maintenance. The curlier or kinkier the hair, the more daily maintenance needed. Daily maintenance includes, wetting the hair and combing through it daily, being sure to comb through the roots.
How many bundles is each density?
Bundle weights vary by company. We calculate bundles by 3.5-4 oz per bundle.
130% density = 1.25 bundles
150% density = 1.5 bundles
180% density = 2 bundles
250% density = 2.5 bundles
We recommend at least 150% for lengths 16-20 inch. Anything above 20 inches needs 180% density or higher. Kinky straight hair is very voluminous and can therefore be ordered in 130% 12-16 inches.
Can it really be worn with no leave-out and will it truly look natural or will it look unnatural like the invisible part methods?
Yes, it can really be worn with no leave-out and yes it will truly look natural. Watch the how to install videos in the video section to learn how to make it look natural with kinky, curly and straight textures. Kinky, curly textures are easier to do and are perfect for beginner/intermediates. Straight textures require intermediate/advance skills. If you follow our recommended methods and practice, it will truly look like your own hair. It will not look like the invisible part methods which we find to be unnatural looking due to either visible knots, glue, wefts, visible lace and other unsightly techniques that scream “I’m wearing a weave”. When our product is installed correctly it will look as natural as if you were wearing a leave-out.
Can it be sewn in?
Yes because the cap is 100% Breathable just like our 10 Minute Sew-in unit, it can be safely sewn in while allow your scalp to properly breathe so it will not sweat or itch.
We recommend that you allow a professional to sew it in for you. When sewing it in, it’s necessary to do a “back stitch” sewing pattern and to make your stitching very close together with no gaps in between. Also stitch at the edge of the material (the first 1-2 rows of insertion holes). Your goal is to tuck the edge under the anchor braid. Below are images of different types of stitching techniques. The typical stitch used for sewing wefts is a “whip stitch”. That technique is not recommend for sewing down our True Roots Closure or our Thin-Part Wigs because the thread will be visible. By doing the back stitch, the stitching will blend in with the roots of the hair and be 100% undetectable.
Also note that if you want a heavier densities such as 250% which is around 3-4 bundles, and you want to sew it in then we recommend you purchase the 10 Minute Sew-in and True Roots Closure instead of the Thin-Part Wig. The density of the wig will tug on your top anchor braid. Though you won’t feel uncomfortable, it will cause you anchor braid move away from your part. Remember, this technique requires your top two anchor braids be right next t to your part with no new growth/roots or gap. However, if you intend to wear thin strands out then you can sew-in a higher density Thin-Part Wig.
Can it be clipped in?
Yes. However, you will need to wear a thin leave-out. The no leave-out technique works only when you use a method where you tuck the edge of the upending under your anchor braid. Therefore, wig clips require a thin leave-out.
How often should I have my anchor braids re-braided?
With Kinky and curly hair you can go several weeks because the teasing of the roots will hide the gap that will begin to occur as your anchor braid begins to move further away from your part. With straight hair the average is 2 weeks (if you’re anchor braids have hair added to it to them stay in place longer). When your anchor braids have moved away from your part and are no longer right next to your part, but instead have a gap of your own roots (new growth) showing, then with straight textures you will need to redo the braids.
How long is the waitlist?
Please see the “shipping” tab for updated wait times.
Can I expedite my order?
Yes. You can decrease your wait time by choosing the option to “jump ahead in line to decrease your wait”.
What texture mimics coarse hair that has been relaxed or silk pressed?
Our Yaki volume and Kelsey units.
Can I wear it flat at the roots with no volume and with no leave-out?
No. For a natural look we recommend just the slightest amount of lift to the roots of your hair. Because this product is tucked under your anchor braid, when the hair in the roots area is completely laying flat, you will see a slight indentation caused by your anchor braids. The indentation does not look natural in our opinion. However if you wear a thin leave-out it can be worn with silky straight flat roots with no volume.
I don’t see the exact texture and style I want. Can I make a custom unit?
Yes. Just email pictures and the exact density, length, and texture you want. We will send you an invoice.
How is this different from a U-part wig?
A u-part wig has a weft at the top which requires you to leave a large section of your own hair out in order to cover the weft. This requires you to blend a 3x4 section of you’re hair with the wig. This process can be difficult for some and restrictive for those who wish to wear multiple textures which may not be the exactly the same as their own. Therefore it often does not look real as people can tell the difference between your hair and the wig.
The top opening of the Thin-Part Wig mimics real hair roots. This allows you to wear your own real part with no leave-out or you can leave our thin strands. By tucking the edge of the opening under your anchor braid you can make the hair appear to be coming from your own real scalp. If you want to wear a leave-out, you can leave-out 99% less leave-out than a U-part wig. Unlike a Upart wig, if the winds blows your leave out out of place, no track/weft will show. Instead it will just look like the roots of your hair.
