I've been selling Brazilian Hair for a while now and am just looking to try out other types so I would like suggestions on how to better satisfy my customers

I just would like to know from you guys what you are looking for when you make a Virgin Hair Purchase. What need do you feel you want hair companies to meet. Any suggestions are welcome.

virgin hair is can dyed, cuticle intact 100% human hair, not remy hair, no chemical process, no acid bath.

If you are looking for the answer to that question ..... you should probably re-phrase it ...... and go for a different approach like, what do you you look for when purchasing hair? My hypothesis is most ladies would say they are looking for virgin hair, natural etc etc.

Or you could just ask what are the important factors you consider when looking for hair? 
Quality of the Hair, Hair Being Unprocessed, Hair Bundle Thickness, Hair Length, Price etc etc.... 

Then ask them rate from 1-5 with 1 being of low importance to 5 being of high importance.

Mine will be quality, and I place a strong emphasis on it. Maybe when I was younger, price would have had a higher impact on my purchase but now it is quality and I am willing to pay for it.

(I really should go to bed lol, this is my thesis mind-set talking sorry lol! I shall keep typing).

But it is good that some hair sellers actually try and carry out some research and care about their customers.

I personally look for hair that is good quality. No matting, tangling, and minimal shedding. Also, you can dye it, wash, and curl it without damaging the hair. I would want my hair to last a year or more. Also, the hair must not lose its curl or wave pattern after washing. Customer service is important too as well as being affordable.

The funny thing about hair, is that even great quality hair eventually loose their wave pattern, not that it will go straight after a wash, maybe after a few washes it will slightly change wash after wash. I don't use curly hair too often, but I would love to find kinky curly hair that will stay it's original curl pattern (very difficult to find unless you plan on not washing your hair!).

I agree with you, customer service is very important!

HI, When shopping for hair extensions, some of the terms can be confusing for beginners. Terms like human hair, Virgin hair, Remy hair and generally just what hair extensions are made of. Some things may surprise you.

Virgin hair is ALWAYS Remy hair, but Remy hair is not always Virgin Hair!
Virgin hair means that the hair used for the extensions must be ALL of the below:
• 100% human hair
• NEVER been colored, bleached or permed
• cut off of the hair donor in one ponytail.
• all the cuticle layers intact.
• all the cuticles  facing the same direction. 
• The hair will never hopelessly tangle.
• Completely natural hair like yours or mine.

Thanks Smile

All virgin hair is NOT remy (meaning the cuticles are aligned)... there is 'fallen' hair that can sometimes be sold and while it is still virgin, it is not remy because the cuticles are no longer aligned. Usually vendors will strip the cuticle, making it no longer virgin; however, this is not always the case.
