Although all are considered virgin hair, Vietnamese raw hair is raw which is a significant difference. To gain a deeper understanding let’s first delve into the difference between the two terms.

What Is Virgin Hair

Virgin hair is hair that is not chemically processed. It has never been permed, dyed, or bleached. All the cuticles of the hair face the same direction. This type of hair is extremely popular because you can dye, bleach, cut, and process the hair and treat it as your own. You can curl it and wash it just like you would your real hair.

Virgin Remy hair is in almost everything nowadays in the hair world. From wigs to sew-ins, and even clip-ins. Its longevity and versatility have caused virgin hair to dominate the market. Many love it because it provides minimal tangling and shedding.

What Is Raw Hair?

Raw hair has all the qualities of virgin hair, but it goes a step further. Not only has it never been chemically processed but it has never had heat applied to it as well. Donors have never had their hair straightened or curled. It is the purest and most natural hair on the market. This is the main difference between virgin hair and raw hair.

Virgin hair is steamed to achieve different textures. All raw hair is considered virgin hair, but not all virgin hair is regarded as raw hair.

The hair comes in many forms from Brazilian to Peruvian, Malaysian, Indian, Cambodian, Vietnamese you name it. The List goes on and on. What do all of these things mean? Are some types of hair better? Which hair texture and type are best for me? Each hair type has its own texture and qualities that separate it from the rest. In this article, we will go over Vietnamese Raw Hair and Brazilian Hair in-depth and the difference between the two.

What Is Vietnamese Raw Hair?

Vietnamese Raw Hair comes directly from Vietnam. This hair is cut off a donor’s head and cleansed. The simple lifestyle of the women in Vietnam from the way they live to even their dietary intake all reflects the quality of the hair.

One of the many reasons why we love Vietnamese hair is because of the high quality. In Vietnam, the women rarely process their hair or straighten it. How they take care of their hair has a lot to do with why Vietnamese hair is top, not raw hair quality. Many of the women in the country grow their hair incredibly long because of this the hair can be purchased in long lengths from 30 inches and above.

This hair is exceptionally pure. Vietnamese hair is soft and silky. It comes in body wave and straight. It does not have as much luster as Brazilian hair, and it is also thicker. Due to its softness and ability to hold curls, it is currently in high demand.

What Is Brazilian Hair

Brazilian hair is collected from donors in the South American region. Most of the donors come from small, rural places within Brazil, where the donors are paid for growing and then donating strong, healthy hair.

Brazilian hair is the most popular hair type in South Africa. The hair is typically soft, relatively thick and very durable. For this reason the hair is suited to any style so it is always a great option whether you prefer a straight, wavy or curly style. Due to the natural density the hair has it is also less likely to frizz which is a big plus and you can also use fewer bundles to still maintain a full look.

Similarities And Differences

Brazilian and Vietnamese Hair are both considered virgin hair meaning that they are hair that is unprocessed. Brazilian hair is usually cheaper while Vietnamese hair is pricier due to its rarity. Vietnamese hair only comes in natural colors because it is raw. Vietnamese Raw Hair is harder to find than Brazilian hair for two main reasons. One is that Vietnamese hair is not as common and two it is raw hair.

What Is Indian Hair

In India, hair is donated at temples as part of a religious ritual. Individuals who participate in this process do so voluntarily as a sacrifice to the presiding deity, and without any expectations of a monetary compensation. Temple authorities then sell the collected hair to extension manufacturers, and the funds collected from the shaved hair are used for the well-being of the community that participates in this process.

Raw Indian hair is versatile, naturally silky and lustrous – and blends well with African American hair. It can be obtained in multiple textures – such as straight, wavy or curly, and does not need to undergo harsh chemical treatments to attain a particular style. The diversity in Indian hair textures and its naturally dark color makes it a great fit for the hair weaves industry.

What Is Peruvian Hair

Peruvian virgin hair is a little thicker and coarser than Brazilian hair in texture and blends well in normal relaxed hair textures on African-American women. It grows naturally straight, wavy or very curly. But when washed becomes more curly in texture. It comes in natural colors of dark or light brown, and sometimes in the less occurring slightly blonde shades. Peruvian hair weave is thick and slightly wavy. The hair is lightweight, but provides more volume and looks very natural.

Is Russian Hair The Best Hair?

Russian hair is a very fine hair type, its available in all colours from virgin dark brown to lightest blonde (when coloured to lighter shades). Virgin Blonde Russian hair is like gold dust, we specialise in the colouring of human hair extensions so that we can cater to all hair types and shades.

Why is Russian Slavic hair so special?

Virgin Slavic hair is the most highly valued material on the hair extension market. This type of hair is only donated in specific tiny areas of Eastern Europe. The greatest advantages of Russian elite hair extensions are the following:

Slavic hair has a wavy structure from childhood. It looks much more natural than any other type of extensions. The hair is soft and thin yet strong enough to resist structure damage during combing.
Slavic hair is very shiny and silky. This is the only type of virgin hair that can have fair light colours without bleaching or dyeing – the choice of shades is wide.
