    Posted: Mar 27 2012 at 10:04pm

If I have red strands in my Virgin Indian Hair is that a sign that it may not be virgin?  I heard some one say recently "And it didn't have any red hair in it!"  (about her virgin hair). So does red strand in virgin hair mean the hair may not be virgin?

Thanks

Chances are it's not virgin and it has fillers mixed in with the hair.

Red hair strands Or red strings ?

I know with BSS hair the strings are used so they'll know which direction to lay the hair Or something like that lol.

I noticed those red strands in the Queens hair I just got last week.  I didn't really notice them until it was too late, so I went ahead and got it installed today anyway.  I'm worried that they may be synthetic fillers.  Did you apply heat to the hair, and if so, what did it do?  Was there any melting or anything?  I'm going back to the stylist to get the hair layered and curled, and I just wanna make sure I'm not gonna get shamed by having melting hair all over her tools LOL.

No, it wasn't red string it looked like hair but I thought at first it may be dyed grey hairs, but the hair is suppose to be virgin. I also thought that it may be henna.  Anyway, I gave it to my sister and she's had it installed for about two weeks, she's washed it once.  It seems to be holding up, but its only been two weeks. 
I had another two bundles (same vendor) installed on myself. It was "supposedly" the same virgin hair that had been dyed by the vendor.  I'm in my 4th week I've washed it every week and it started tangling in the third week.  I'm trying to work with this stuff (sigh)... might have to just cut my losses and move on.

I didn't have Queens hair, but my sister's stylist flat ironed hers, and it seemed fine, when she washed it last week she didn't have problems with heat.

i've had those reddish strands in virgin hair before and many times i have not had any problem with the hair at all....... it held up well and didnt bunch

hair can lighten in the sun so maybe those are strands that have lighter pigment or something ???

It could be a couple different things.  If it is mixed through the hair like natural highlights, it could very well be from something like sun exposure.  Every hair color/color level has a natural underlying pigment (one of the colors of the color wheel- like red, orange, yellow, etc..).  The underlying pigment starting at level 1 and remaining to some degree up to level 3-4 is red (black and darkest brown hair basically).  That is why people with hair in those shades often have warm highlights.

The other thing, as several other people have mentioned already, is that it could be henna.  For that matter, it really could be another hair dye as well, especially if the hair had greys and was dyed.  Grey hair can sometimes grab those underlying pigments in the hair dye like that.
