What is Mink Hair?
1. Animal Hair
Mink hair references the fur of an animal called "Mink". Yes, you read it correctly. FUR FROM AN ANIMAL! This is the only way you can get real mink hair. Mink fur is very soft, silky and short, it is often used as hair for eyelashes, but could not be made for hair extensions. You definitely want the 100% real human hair rather than animal hair.
Mink hair is also very short. This is another reason how you can know that it’s just a marketing strategy.
WHERE DOES "MINK HAIR" COME FROM?
I’ve witnessed companies using the term “mink hair” to describe good quality hair that they believe is softer, silkier, and more glossy. This is actually a trend that businesses have been doing to justify increases in their prices for the same hair.
For example, we could easily say our hair is real mink hair, and has very good quality with full cuticles, and add anything else that the average customer would expect from high-quality hair extensions. This can be said without changing a thing about our hair. But, here at Weave Finesser LLC. we are upfront and 100% genuine about our hair and our products live up to their quality.
Now that you know that “mink hair” is 100% marketing words, understand that the ten can be used for any kind of hair that a seller wants it to be, because there is no real classification or qualifications.
So before you buy hair extensions, we would suggest you understand some basic things to look for when purchasing hair. This will help you buy the best hair extensions, like a real Finesser!
When you buying hair extensions ask yourself questions like:
a. Is this 100% human hair bundles without any animal hair or synthetic hair mixed?
b. Are the cuticles of the hair aligned in the same direction?
c. Can the hair be dyed?
d. Are the bundles double or single stitched?
e. How heavy are the bundles? *Usually, it is 100 grams per bundle.*
