What is virgin hair
Before we dig deep into the character of Vietnam virgin hair, let’s take a minute or two to answer “what is virgin hair?”
We heard many funny sharings from our customers about this term. Some said they thought virgin hair means that hair comes from young, unmarried women. The word “virgin” has made people confused.
The word “virgin” has made people confused.
We can assure you this is not the case. Virgin hair means hair in its natural state. This type of hair never experiences heat and chemical processing. All the cuticles are aligned and preserved.
What’s more, virgin hair is often from a single donor. It is hard to call hair from different donors virgin hair. This is because each person has different hair conditions and takes care of their hair not the same.
In summary, virgin hair has two prominent factors. It must come from only one donor. More importantly, hair must stay in its natural state without any harmful treatments.
Vietnam virgin hair vs. raw hair
The term raw hair and virgin hair are often used interchangeably. That certainly causes some misunderstanding within customers. That makes people think virgin hair and raw hair refer to the same thing.
Again, this is considerable confusion here. Raw hair and virgin hair may be the cousin, but they are not twins.
Raw hair also means that hair in its natural state. The type of hair never undergoes any heat and chemical treatments. All cuticles stay protected — the hair strands and strong and healthy.

The only and most significant difference between raw hair and virgin hair is donors. While virgin hair comes from a single donor, raw hair can be collected from many donors.
As we mentioned before, each donor has a different hair texture. The environment, personal hair care, and even gene affect the quality of hair. Vendors who collect virgin hair want to preserve the most natural and ordinary state of their material.
Once hair from different donors comes together, it is harder to determine the overall quality. Of course, raw hair 100% unprocessed must offer higher quality than Remy hair.
However, raw hair can never win the quality competition with virgin hair. So girls, if you are after excellence, Vietnamese virgin hair should be your top choice.
The characters of Vietnam virgin hair
Okay, we’re finally here.
What is all the fuss about Vietnam virgin hair?
We want to mention some characteristics of virgin hair first. Vietnam virgin hair here means hair comes from only one donor. Unlike countries like India, where vendors buy hair from local temples after festivals, Vietnamese hair is mostly from the countryside.
That is a big advantage of Vietnamese hair. In the countryside, Vietnamese women still utilize natural methods to clean and take care of their hair. They use home remedies such as lemongrass, or holy basil to wash the hair.
That is why the quality of Vietnamese hair is top-notch. When it comes to hair, Vietnamese hair shares some similar features

How to take care of Vietnam virgin hair?
When you purchase hair extensions or wigs from Vietnamese donors, please bear in mind that you should take good care of them.
If you want to maintain the smoothness and straight texture, please following our advice:
Choose natural or organic hair care products
Since virgin hair preserves the most natural characters, any chemical shampoos and conditioners can ruin them. We would suggest you not use any products from conventional drug stores.
Hair cut off from human head no longer receives sebum to nurture it. As a result, hair from full lace wigs, frontal lace wigs or human hair extensions is prone to frizz and damage.
To prevent this, you should look for products with natural ingredients such as green tea, lemon grass, lemon and the like. What’s more, you should also consider oil-based formula.
Look for hair products with argan oil, coconut oil or olive oil.
Use a wide-toothed comb
Narrow toothed comb while detangling hair knots, cause hair damage and break hair as well. We urge you to switch your traditional brush to a wide-toothed one. This way, the hair from wigs and extensions is under less tension and stress.
Your purchased products are more durable and less prone to shedding.
Wash it carefully
You should wash Vietnamese hair one in a while, not every day. When cleaning the hair, avoid to rub it. Gently massage the hair with shampoo and then rinse it thoroughly with water.
