When it comes to a good hair bundle, there are many factors for sound quality. The hair may come from different sources, such as Vietnamese hair or Cambodian hair with various texture and characteristics. However, that alone isn’t enough to determine the bundle quality.
Hair quality can be significantly enhanced through the so-called drawing process. After this process, hair is either single drawn, double drawn and even super double drawn.
If you ever wonder how to make double drawn hair, this is the article for you. We also tackle several questions regarding double drawn hair as well, so stay tuned.
What is double drawn hair?
Let’s first grab some definition before getting to how to make double drawn hair, shall we?
So what is double drawn hair?
The term refers to a process in which hair length is varied to create bundles with different thickness. In the case of double drawn, the process is more complicated. A bundle of double drawn hair will have around 60 to 70% of hair with the same length.
Why must it be 60 or 70%?
A bundle of double drawn hair will have around 60 to 70% of hair with the same length.
If you examine your existing hair, you will notice that your hair isn’t at the same length. Even if you cut it, after a while, some strands will be longer then the others. Understanding this nature of hair, hair vendors try to copy the mechanism, making natural looking hair bundles.
Hair with 60 to 70% of the same length will offer a natural looking thickness. Unlike single drawn hair, double drawn hair bundle is thick from top to bottom. You only need to use 1 to 2 bundles to achieve the thickness you want.
Double drawn hair vs. single drawn hair
To illustrate our point, we will compare double drawn hair to single drawn hair. You will understand better the differences, pros, and cons of double drawn. After that, we will move to how to make double drawn hair.
Due to the manufacturing process, single drawn hair and double drawn hair are very different. Because the drawing of single drawn hair is less than double drawn one, you can notice the difference of hair ends.
The visual example of how different single drawn, double drawn and super drawn is.
As for single drawn hair, the middle and ends are thin while the top is thick. On the other hand, double drawn hair, with over 50% of same-length hair, offers full thickness from the top to the end.
The process of making single drawn hair is quite simple. Hair bundles need to have 50% or less of hair with the same length. Therefore, you can find half of the bundle has hair with various range.
As for double drawn type, this is less likely. The domain of hair with the same length is so profound that it is hard to notice hair with different length.
Because of the drawning, double drawn type with more hair with the same length will be more expensive than single drawn one. Since the hair needs to be carefully selected, and undergone through several processes, it is understandable that the price is inflated.
How to make double drawn hair?
So how to make double drawn hair bundles? To make it easier for you, we will take a simple example.
Let’s say we want to make a 20-inch double drawn hair bundle. In this case, we need to find three bundles with the same length of 20 inches.
The first bundle should be varied from 18 to 20 inches. Whereas, the other two can be from 16 to 20 inches.
Here is how to you tackle this hair type:
- Hair professionals will measure the bundles with a measuring tape. After that, they will pick hairs with the same length and tied them all together with a rubber band to create a bundle.
- Next, hair professionals will make an additional step where they add the first bundle with the second one by brushing the two together. Since the hair length of the two bundles is different, hair professionals must make sure that the difference isn’t apparent. The two bundles then turn into only one.
- The third bundle will also come together with its cousin. The process is similar to the second. Hair professionals must make sure that they brush the hair thoroughly.
- The last step is essential. In this step, hair professionals need to get rid of split ends or straggling strands. After that, they will weft the bundle accordingly.
Double drawn hair extensions are made the same. Depending on the types (clip-in or tape-in), the final step will be different.
Some hair vendors select hair carefully before making hair bundles. They will choose hair with minimal split ends so that the last process is quick. However, the price of double drawn type remains expensive.
As you can see, the process of making this type is much more complicated than single type. Hair professionals need to be attentive and careful if they want their bundles to look perfect.
Hair density and the drawning process : the biggest misunderstanding
While the drawning process dramatically increases the thickness of hair, but it has nothing to do with hair density. Some customers come to us and inquire about the hair density of bundles. They often mix up both terms, causing so many troubles to hair professionals.
While the drawning process dramatically increases the thickness of hair, but it has nothing to do with hair density.
So hair density isn’t about double drawn or single drawn. The density here means the volume of a bundle. You can only increase the hair volume by adding more hair. This type refers to the amount of hair with the same length.
That means it can look thick, but its density isn’t specific.
The bottom line
We hope that you now understand how to make double drawn hair. The making process requires attentiveness and carefulness. That’s why only skilfull workers can handle the task.
