About Our Hair
Ahhh, the hair extension industry - an industry we adore and are so honoured to be a part of but also one that is completely under regulated and riddled in lies. From frustrated consumers to hair extension entrepreneurs, we took it upon ourselves to implement change by offering a product that goes completely against the despicable yet standard practices in the extension industry. Human hair extensions come from humans, not dolls, so why do some extensions feel, smell and look like plastic when you pull them from the package? An ingredient called silicone! Silicone has the ability to make poor quality hair extensions appear healthy and shiny. It is only a temporary solution given the coating comes off in only a few washes. Once the silicone coating is gone, the hair returns to its unruly, unmanageable, dry and tangled state. This leads to a lot of frustration for both stylists and clients alike who are left to wonder what went wrong - “They looked so good when she/I left the salon!?” The truth of the matter is that even with the best application, products and aftercare, you can not fix bad quality hair extensions. We never use silicone on our hair extensions. We are proud of the high quality product we offer and have no reason to hide it’s true quality in silicone - we prefer to showcase it!
At Glam Fairy Hair, we want you to feel 100% confident that you are purchasing from a reliable and trustworthy source. We want to prove that our promises aren't just a good sales pitch, but rather the reality of our business. We believe in providing the highest quality products and making them available at a fair price, while maintaining ethical collection and labour practices. Located just 1 hour of beautiful Moscow, Russia, our factory has all the right attributes: bright and spacious facilities, revolutionary technology and comfortable working conditions. Glam Fairy Hair employs full-time dedicated staff that monitor all production processes to ensure the highest standards of quality and safety are met. Hair is collected from every Russian region. Women willingly come to designated "cutting salons" to sell their hair for a trade price. The amount paid is dependant on the length and colour of their natural hair, however on average women are paid the equivalent of one month salary.
Why go for our Russian hair extensions?
Our hair is 100% single donor collected. This means that every package of Glam Fairy Hair extensions are ethically gathered from the same person. Not only does this give our hair extensions natural flow and movement but it also means zero tangling and matting. Russian hair extensions are known to be the highest quality hair extensions on the market. We are totally committed to quality in every way, so we decided to source the best possible Russian hair for our clients. Russian hair is considered to be one of the finest textured hair types available, and anyone who comes into contact with it will confirm this. It is a cut above the rest, and there is no mistaking it.
The majority of hair extension companies simply gather their hair from a large group of donors (or over combed brushes) and then send it to a factory to be bunched together and turned into hair extensions. This means that the hair in each set of our competitors extensions could easily be collected from thousands of women. Glam Fairy extensions are tangle free, glamorous, and will last 1 to 2 years - provided that you look after it, of course!
Why is Russian hair of such high quality?
The Russian diet has a lot to do with the quality of this hair. The Russian diet is generally rich in vitamins and nutrients, which benefits the hair greatly and helps it to grow long and strong with plenty of volume. The diet is also usually low in sugar, sodium, and unhealthy processed animal fat.
With Russian hair, "competitive" prices aren’t easy to offer, and we know this for sure because the genuine hair we carefully source is expensive. It isn’t possible to buy this kind of hair in bulk or at wholesale prices – quality Russian hair is a commodity, and that is the bottom line. It is a little like precious metals in that regard; like anything in life, you get what you pay for in terms of quality.
Will Russian hair be right for you?
Russian hair has a naturally soft texture, with a silken, flowing quality that can’t fail to make anybody’s hair look beautiful. It is a very good match for most western hair types, and it is so fine that it sits naturally amidst your own hair. If you have quite thick hair, we can simply add more extensions to match your natural thickness. When wet, Russian hair will only wave lightly to beach wave depending on the donor, so it is great for those with naturally straight hair. If you have a natural wave in your hair (as many of our clients do) this hair will blend perfectly with your own. Whatever your hair type, with Russian hair you can expect natural movement.
