Human hair process

1. Selection of Raw Hair

Hairs of the highest quality are sourced from different areas. Natural hair is usually shaved from women’s head and tied as a single piece in different lengths. Hairs in different lengths and sizes are assorted, segregated and sold at different prices. Careful selection is done to procure the right type of hair. Only our skilled technicians are in charge of this process.

2. Arranging Hair

The thickness percentage of the hair is determined by the style and maintenance of the person who offer the hair. Some women prefer to have long hair and some have a mix of long and short hair. The longest hair of one person can be of 26” but the shortest size could be of 2”–3” length. The percentage of 20 – 26” is approximately 30% whereas 10”– 20” would be of 40% and remaining 30% up to 2”.

By arranging the hair we ensure that the head of the hair is even. It is further hackled to remove crude and unwanted short size hair before sending it for washing. Usually the shaved hair comes as a single piece tied with a bunch of short hair to ensure the piece is tight enough to hold it. The short hair and all unwanted hair are also removed in this process. The different sizes are segregated before sent for washing. Hair loss in this process is between 5 – 10 % of the total weight.

3. Washing

The arranged hair is soaked in a solution of conditioners and detergents to remove the dirt, oil and other dust particles. Usually the hair is soaked in oil to give more weight while selling. The soaked hair is then washed in water several times until it is clean and sent for drying

4. Drying

Sunlight is essential for proper drying. We sun dry the washed hair for several hours to make sure the hair becomes soft. During rainy season we prefer not to use the heater to dry as it gives an odd odor on the hair. Though sun drying makes for almost 10 - 15% of weight loss after washing, it is easier to identify the texture of hair after proper drying.

5. Hackling

Hackling is a process to arrange the hair evenly according to the sizes. All short hair removed from the pieces is arranged for further process. Only trained professionals can do this job. Extreme care is taken in this process to avoid mixing of head and end of the hair. The top and end of the hair should be arranged in the same direction only then it is remy hair. A small mistake could become a disaster. The percentage loss is approximately 10 – 15%

6. Stocking

The hackled and arranged hair is stocked in racks of different sizes for further process like wefting, coloring, bleaching, etc. These are also known as ready stock and this is what is available at any time. From this inventory, hair is selected for any other process. The total weight loss from purchase of raw hair until this stage is around 30% or even more.

After each process the hair is washed again and conditioned. Overall, the hair undergoes three times shampoo wash and conditioned twice to make the final product.
