The raw hair is the highest level of quality hair that you may purchase.Since the raw hair is sourced directly from the donors, it lasts longer than most other hair types. Because raw hair is unprecessed, the hair is less silky and it’s also coarser than virgin hair type.

Virgin hair is more popular because you can dye, cut, and bleach the hair and treat it as your own. If you have the correct virgin hair, you should be able to color it to any of your desired color. If that’s not the case then that’s not the virgin hair. The hair type usually has strong vitality.

Virgin hair is steamed to achieve different textures. Raw hair has not been altered in any way by steam or chemical treatment. Both hairs are mostly from a human donor and they never undergo excessive processing. This means that they shouldn’t have a strong scent or even the strong factory scent or odour.  If you notice a strong smell, chances are that the hair was processed at some point.
