Want pretty good quality remy hair, but your pockets are tight??? Then one of Indian Hair Industries companies will fit your needs. Indian Hair Industries has TWO companies selling Indian hair. Here is the break down on the differences between the two companies:
Indian Hair Industries:
Carries unprocessed virgin Indian hair. Because this hair is virgin hair, it has not been colored, and there are no color options. The hair will come in natural shades of brown. As most Indian hair has a natural wave to it, the single drawn straight hair can be flat ironed straight or airdried and worn in it’s natural wave pattern. (my personal favorite way to style Indian hair) The minimum purchase quantity is 1 pound (4 packs of hair). However the actual weight of each pack is 3.5 – 4.1 oz in weight, and the shipping is a flat rate of $40 no matter how much hair you purchase. The shipping is high because they send ALL packages out via UPS international express shipping. According to the forum skuttlebutt, there is very little difference between the single drawn straight and the curly hair. Apparently the curly hair they sell is only SLIGHTLY curly and looks more like a deep wave than a tight curly pattern.
RK Hair Products:
Indian Hair’s sister company is RK Hair Products. RK also sells Indian hair. However RK’s hair has been processed for color and/or texture. This means that you can order the hair in specific colors. The minimum purchase quantity says 8 oz (2 packs of hair). However the actual weight of each pack is 3.5 – 4.1 oz in weight, and the shipping is a flat rate of $40 no matter how much hair you purchase. Again, the shipping is high because they send ALL packages out via UPS international express shipping. (Tip: You can combine orders of both RK and Indian Hairs and pay only ONE $40 shipping fee)
The single drawn straight hair I purchased from RK gets a nice lazy wave to it when washed and allowed to air dry. Unlike Indian Hairs, not all of RK’s hair is remy hair. The only REMY hair RK sells their single drawn straight hair. All other curl patterns/textures are non-remy hair. RK attempts to make it easy for you to distinguish this by including the word REMY in the product descriptions of all their remy hair. I confirmed this with Mr Vanka of Indian Hair Industries. You can assume that if the description does not contain the word “Remy” that it is NOT remy hair.
The hand tied and machine wefts are well constructed and can be reused through multiple installs. The hand tied wefts are actually in my opinon micro-machine wefts which can be cut without needing to be sealed.
