1. SELECTING THE HAIR
Hairs of the highest quality are sourced from different areas. Natural hair is usually shaved from women’s heads and tied as a single piece in different lengths. Hairs in different lengths and sizes are assorted, segregated and sold at different prices. Ted Hair’s hair material is sourced mostly from Indian temples, the Chinese countryside and Southeast Asian countries.
2. ARRANGING THE HAIR
The thickness percentage of the hair is determined by the style and maintenance regime of the person providing the hair. Some women prefer to have long hair and some have a mix of long and short hair. The hair is arranged to ensure that it is even.
3. WASHING THE HAIR
The arranged hair is soaked in a solution of conditioners and detergents to remove the dirt, oil and other dust particles. Usually the hair is soaked in oil to give it more weight when being sold. The soaked hair is then washed in water several times until it is clean and sent for drying.
Sunlight is essential for proper drying. The washed hair is sun dried for several hours to make sure the hair becomes soft. It is preferred not to use the heater for drying as it gives an unusual odor to the hair.Though sun drying accounts for almost 10 - 15% of weight loss after washing, it is easier to identify the texture of the hair after proper drying.
Hackling is a process by which the hair is arranged evenly according to size. All short hair removed from the pieces is arranged for further processing. Only trained professionals can do this job. Extreme care is taken in this process to avoid mixing up the heads and ends of the hair. The top and end of the hair should be arranged in the same direction; only then it is remy hair. A small mistake could become a disaster.
