What is RAW HAIR?

When the word "Raw" appears in association with hair extensions, you should think of the purest and most natural hair extensions you can find. Raw Hair refers to hair that has been directly cut from a donor's head and has not undergone any chemical processing or treatment. It is in its most natural state, completely untouched and unaltered. Raw hair is highly prized for its purity and quality because it maintains its original texture, color, and strength.

  • Here are some key features of raw hair:

  1. Unprocessed: Raw hair has not been subjected to any chemical treatments such as dyeing, bleaching, perming, or relaxing. It is free from any artificial alterations.

  2. Natural Texture: Since raw hair is untouched, it retains the natural texture of the donor's hair. This can range from straight to wavy to curly, depending on the donor's hair type.

  3. Single Donor Source: Raw hair is often collected from a single donor, ensuring consistency in texture and quality throughout the hair bundle.

  4. Highest Quality: Because it is in its purest form, raw hair is considered the highest quality of hair available for extensions. It is prized for its durability, longevity, and natural appearance.

  5. Customizable: Raw hair can be styled, colored, and treated just like your natural hair because it has not been chemically processed. This allows for greater versatility in styling options.


  • Raw hair is definitely the most expensive than other types of hair extensions due to its premium quality and the meticulous sourcing process involved in collecting it. It is favored by those seeking the most natural and long-lasting hair extension options.Raw hair and virgin hair extensions are two terms often used in the hair extension industry, and while they may seem similar, they actually refer to different qualities of hair.

  1. Virgin Hair Extensions:

  • Virgin hair refers to hair that has never been chemically processed, meaning it has not been dyed, bleached, permed, or chemically treated in any way.

  • Virgin hair is prized for its natural look and feel, as it retains its original texture and color.

  • This type of hair is typically collected directly from a donor and then carefully processed to ensure it retains its natural qualities.

  • Virgin hair extensions can come from a variety of sources, including Indian, Brazilian, Peruvian, Malaysian, etc., and they are often sorted by donors and sold in bundles.

  1. Raw Hair Extensions:

  • Raw hair is also unprocessed hair, but it goes a step further than virgin hair. Raw hair is completely unaltered and has not been even washed or manipulated in any way after being cut from the donor's head.

  • Raw hair extensions are prized for their highest quality and most natural appearance because they have not undergone any processing whatsoever.

  • Due to its raw nature, this type of hair often comes in its natural textures, which can range from straight to wavy to curly, depending on the donor.

  • Raw hair is generally sourced from a single donor, ensuring consistency in texture and quality.

  • Because of its pristine quality, raw hair extensions are usually more expensive than virgin hair extensions.

  • In summary, while both raw and virgin hair extensions are unprocessed and natural, raw hair is in its purest form, having undergone no processing whatsoever, whereas virgin hair may have undergone minimal processing such as washing and conditioning, but has not been chemically treated. Both types of hair are prized for their natural look and feel, but raw hair is typically considered the highest quality and most premium option.
