Ggirl look what you done started!!

This is so broken telephone!!!



See what happens when a bunch of sistahs sit in a room?

IT is NOT hair from a YAK!!! It is made to duplicate the texture from a yak!! It is a figure of speech--- Another way for "the man" to try to insult our beauty[IMG]height=17 alt=LOL src="http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/smileys/smiley36.gif" width=17 align=absMiddle>

You girls crack me up

    

Right! The hair does NOT COME FROM YAK!!! It is illegal to sell animal hair and call it "human hair" ! "Yaki" is just the name of the texture, it has nothing to do with the type of actual hair being used. I have too often seen people confuse the term "remy". Remy does NOT mean the hair is unprocessed. I just means the cuticles are not stripped and are properly facing the natural direction. Unprocessed hair is "Virgin" virgin hair is not colored, nor is it permed. Very few of you have any use for "Virgin"' hair unless you are a hairstylist and are planning to color and or perm the hair your self. Yes there are some indian women with curly hair. But most of the hair suppliers, especially wig factories do not purchase curly hair as it is less versatile. If you are wearing a curly wig it is remy but it is NOT virgin. If you are wearin a Yaki wig, it is Remy but NOT virgin. If you asked for s specific hair color, even 1 or 1/b you were given color processed hair. Again, remy but NOT virgin. If you request virgin hair, you have no control over the color or texture, they just try to match it up as much as possible. I hope this clears things up. I know this has all been mentioned before.

Didn't mean to get you guys in an uproar That's why I said this is what I've heard.  I've heard it from vendors and people selling hair when I ask them about their yaki hair versus others yaki hair...this is not meant to be fact

Well when I was in beauty school they told my yaki hair came from a yak, there was a picture of a yak in the book. As far as "human yaki" who knows but I seriously doubt anyone is policing the human hair trade from the China to the U.S .

Yeah - I've heard that several times but I have no idea how true it is.  I know the hair from china was processed that's why it's called light yaki for the light processing done to make it coarse.

BS- Thanks for that explanation....I think I am one of the people who confuses remy and virgin hair!  I have used this in the same sentence - no wonder those Chinese vendors are confused by what I ask for!

if they say it's human I guess it is, maybe they should describe it as yaki textured human hair.
