FAQs – HAIR EXTENSIONS

Who is the ideal client for wearing Hair Extensions?

Hair Extensions should be worn by those who have thin / short hair at the back of their scalp. Often clients get confused and feel that Hair Extensions are meant for the hair thinning on the crown area. But it is totally wrong. For thinning on crown area, one has to use a hair system or a hair patch and for hair thinning on the back side of the scalp, one must wear Hair Extensions. Since there is very limited hand knotted work done in Hair Extensions, it is usually much cheaper compared to hand made Hair Replacement Systems, Hair Patches or Hair Wigs.

What is the difference between Human Hair and Synthetic Extensions?

The short answer is that Human Hair and Synthetic Hair extensions vary on these main counts – degree of customization you can do, durability, look and feel and lastly hygiene. Human Hair Extensions can offer a very high degree of customization are more durable, feel just like your own hair and can be washed just like our own hair thus making them very hygienic. However what Synthetic Extensions lack on these fronts, they make up for it in the cost savings! Synthetic Hair Extensions cost almost 1/5th that of Human Hair Extensions and thus are preferred by many when the usage is going to be minimal. 

What are Permanent Hair Extensions?

Permanent hair extensions are those, which need to be attached to our natural hair, near to the scalp permanently by a medical grade glue and can be removed only by a professional hair stylist. However, our hair grows at a rate of ~1cm per month and these extensions move further away from the scalp, so these need to be re-attached by a specialist hair stylist after every 2 months or so. Hence even the so-called permanent hair extensions are only ‘semi-permanent’ in the real sense. 

At Papillon Hair World, we usually prefer to use clip on method of fixing hair extensions as these work the best in Indian climate. 

What is the source of hair used in Human hair extensions?

The hair used in Papillon’s ‘Human Hair Extensions’ is collected from a single donor, from top to the tip of the hair and usually is sourced from the temple hair. There are many sources of Human Hair such as Hair from Parlors, Comb hair, and Temple hair and then there are fakes such as synthetic fibers or animal fibers. We usually use the virgin / remy temple hair source as this hair is the most tangle free, can be customized for natural look, colour and various styling possibilities. For a normal person it is very difficult to judge the source of the hair, but do not hesitate in asking the supplier for a detailed explanation!

What is the difference between Hair Extensions and Hair Bundles?

Hair Bundles are nothing but one earlier stage of Hair Extensions. When we manufacture Hair Extensions, first we have to source and process Bulk Hair. Then this Bulk Hair is bundled based on their length, texture, quality, color etc. After this sorting and processing we stitch this bulk hair together and produce what is called a Hair Bundles / Weave Hair or also called as a Machine Weft. And lastly from these Machine Wefts / Weave Hair / Hair Bundles we manufacture Hair Extensions but cutting and processing it further and adding the fixing accessories such as clips, glue rings, tapes etc.
