Unraveling the Origins of Hair Extensions: A Journey to Discover Its Source

Hair extensions come from various sources and locations! It all depends on the method, the vendor, the salon, whether it is human or synthetic hair and most importantly the texture of the hair!


Below are some just some examples of where your hair extensions come from!

  1. Donors: Some hair extensions are made from real human hair that has been donated. Donors can be from different countries and backgrounds, and they are usually paid for their hair.

  2. Hair salons: A handful of hair salons collect the hair that is cut during haircuts and sell it to companies that use it to make hair extensions, or wigs.

  3. Hair collectors: In some countries, there are individuals or companies that collect hair from temples, salons, and other sources and sell it to hair extension manufacturers.

  4. Synthetic materials: Synthetic hair extensions are made from various synthetic materials, such as polyester or nylon. They are usually less expensive than human hair extensions and are available in a variety of colors and textures.


It's important to note that the origin of hair extensions can vary greatly depending on the type and quality of the extensions. Some hair extensions are ethically sourced and made from high-quality human hair, while others may come from questionable sources and be of lower quality.


It is important to do your research and choose a reputable company that uses ethical and sustainable practices when sourcing and manufacturing hair extensions. Hopefully the hair extension specialist you are going to, has done the research for you and chooses the hair based on YOUR natural hair texture!
