Many stylists are used to dealing with Indian hair. Indian hair wefts are much longer than Filipino and Malaysian hair wefts. The typical Indian hair weft is constructed with 3.3 to 3.6 ounces. Our typical Malaysian and Filipino hair wefts are constructed with 3.5 to 4.2 ounces of hair.
That being said, please remember that with denser hair, the weight of the hair is in the strand of hair, not in the length of the weft. So 1.5oz of 16” Indian hair weft is approximately 47” long while 1.5oz of 16” Filipino hair is 19” long.
When ordering hair from us, please remember the old question., “What weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of bricks?” The answer is they both weigh a ton, but one is more dense than the other and requires less to meet the completed weight. Because Malaysian and Filipino hair are more dense, less is required on the weft to meet the desired weight.
1. Q: Where does your hair come from?
A. The origins of our hair come from all over the world. But mainly 7 sources. India, China, Myanmar, Philippines, Malaysia, Brazil and Europe.
2. Q: I heard that Indian hair was better and Chinese hair was the worst. Which hair is better?
A. At Krown of Glory, we don't state one type of hair is "better" than the other, simply that it is better FOR something than another hair type, because it's all a matter of preference and suitability for length and texture processing. Sometimes people inaccurately compare low quality hair extensions with high quality hair extensions. If you take high quality Chinese hair, it is not very coarse and wiry, and as such there is no need to remove the cuticle and treat with silicone. That is done with low grade hair of ALL types, including Indian hair.
3. Q: European hair is forcibly taken and Indian hair comes from the temples. Why do you sell European hair?
A: The forcible taking of hair can happen anywhere, including India. So it's unfair and inaccurate to point out one type of hair as being inferior due to the collection method. ALL Indian hair does not come from temples, in fact MOST doesn't. Many women in third world countries sell their hair to help support themselves and their families. It is a way of income for them and hair trade is a major part of our global economy.
4. Q: Do you color the hair?
A: We recommend the hair is colored by a stylist, not by the factory. In addition we recommend that if you order Indian hair in anything other than a very curly texture and you want to straighten it, that you have that colored by the stylist as well. A stylist is more concerned about color depth, veracity and balance, a factory is more concerned about uniformity. As for European hair, it is fine for the factory to color it.
5. Q: I heard that there is no such thing as different types of hair, that there is only Indian hair and that there is no such thing as Brazilian hair. Is this true?
A: Hair is collected from all over the world, just at different quantities and prices. Where ever hair is grown, it is more than likely being traded and sold. Just because we haven’t heard of it in America, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. We could get you hair from an American, but it would cost a lot. We know this because we have been contacted by people wanting to sell their hair. So no, it is not true.
6. Q: How do I care for my hair extensions?
A: It is best to have a licensed hair stylist care for your extensions every 1 to 2 weeks. However, in the event that you have to care for them yourself, you should wash them in lukewarm water, using a gentle downward motion, starting from the top of the hair (right under the weft) moving to the bottom. Use a high quality shampoo for your hair extensions. Do not put conditioner on the weft. Rinse them out, using the same motion. Sleep with a silk/satin bonnet on.
7. Q: Do your hair extensions shed or tangle?
A: All companies that sell hair extensions would love to say extensions don’t shed or tangle. In fact some testify to just that. However, we are going to be honest and say yes, SOME hair extensions will shed and tangle. HOWEVER, they should NEVER mat up. Minimal shedding and tangling are normal occurrences. Especially in longer hair extensions, 16” and longer, usually hair tends to tangle or shed due to the length, tension and styling habits/methods, not lack of quality.
8. Q: Should my stylist sew through my weft?
A: We never recommend stylists sew through the weft, even with the smallest needle. Many of Krown of Glory wefts are specially designed for a discreet feel. Your weft is like your scalp, you only have one. The weft is what is holding the hair and any damage to it will compromise its strength and if it is weakened the hair will begin to loosen and shed. We recommend that you request your stylist to sew under and around your hair weft.
9. Q: Can hand tied wefts be cut?
A: Always have a stylist that is experienced with hand tied wefts to install them for you. They should not be cut, but in the even that they have to, an experienced stylist will know how to reinforce the weft. Hand tied wefts will shed and unravel if they are cut because they are tied with hair and not machine wefted with thread.
10. Q: How much hair do I need?
A: Please ask your stylist to contact us directly if they have any questions about the amount of hair that you need. Our hair does not come from where commercial vendors or distributors get their hair, therefore a different amount is required, depending on the type of hair and/or style that is desired.
