Not So Virgin Hair

Not So Virgin Hair


Recently I spoke with a woman that told me she ONLY buys her virgin hair from Aliexpress/baba. I could literally feel my face twisting and cringing until I caught myself 🙃🙃 🤷🏽‍♀️ *an opportunity to educate*. I automatically thought of this picture from a visit to China when I walked past a pile of "Brazilian Hair" outside of a shop.

This is one of the things I refer to when speaking about NO/LOW quality control. By now everyone should know "Brazilian, Malaysian, Peruvian, Mongolian, Jamaican, Irish, Tanzanian, Girl Alaskan "virgin hair"... (the list goes on) comes from China. The names sound good and the price may be as low as a $50 bundle deal. But when it comes down to the product that your purchasing, you will want to know things like; is this hair a mixed blend with synthetic or animal hair? Is it in a plastic sleeve with an odor potentially full of fungus, mold or mildew from it being contained wet? What are the quality control steps taken in the production of the extensions?

It can result in scalp issues, alopecia, and other difficulties. Trust me I know from experience. I say this not to be funny because these are serious issues, many women face.

I don't only travel and do research to perfect my products with @galaxy5000extensions but also to educate myself about other products on the market and this is about 95% of them. #SideNote A cat had just run past the hair as I snapped this picture 🤦🏾‍♀️ **

Just in case you didn't know most of the entities that are on Aliexpress are not the factories. They are more often 2nd and 3rd parties. Many products are not true to the description. In fact I saw "Galaxy 5000 raw hair" on there not too long ago. You can rest easy at night knowing Galaxy 5000 Luxury Hair Extensions are sold via our online store or the Galaxy 5000 Hair Extensions Showroom located in Washington, DC.
