How is the hair treated?
The hair coming in is collected in large bags or baskets. To begin with, the hair is cleaned in large cleansing tubs to clear eggs, lice, grease and other impurities. If this process is not performed correctly or closely, eggs and lice can remain in the hair. This is a common problem that occurs in smaller Indian factories.
After the purification bath the hair is put into an acid that bleaches the hair which then will be colored. Asian hair is often left in the oxygen bath stage longer, thinning the strands making it more suitable for the european market.
In most cases, the Indian hair is sold on to larger factories in Italy that have better resources and the means of buying the absolute highest quality hair. Italy has a long tradition in the extension industry. Thanks to their advanced technology, modern facilities and world leading expertise, they can deliver some of the finest extensions in the world.
