 Raw Hair  vs. Virgin Hair  

What is RAW HAIR?

  • This hair is the purest hair on the market.

  • 5+ life expectancy. 

What is Graded Hair?

Graded hair is just a way to grade the quality of the hair bundles found in each hair type (non-remy, remy, virgin, raw).  The hair grade system is based on:

 

  • Thickness

  • Fullness

  • Single drawn bundle. (uses multiple lengths of hair strands to create hair bundle.)

  • Double drawn bundle. (uses one length of hair strands to create hair bundle.)

  • The hair has been washed and conditioned.

  • The hair has not wash and conditioned...

ETC​

 

The higher the grade, the better the quality. 6A,7A,8A,9A,10A,11A,12A,Mink

 

Be Aware!!!

 

Each factory has it's own version of the grading system. 

For example:

Joe Lee's 10A Virgin Hair could be much different from Sarah Ming's 10A Virgin Hair but yet they are both claiming 10A Virgin Hair.  There is no official scale for the hair industry to use at each factory.  Each factory grades their hair according to what they believe is correct.

This is why it's more important to pay attention to the three ways hair is processed instead of grades.
