COLLECTING HAIR MATERIAL
Hair is purchased from raw hair vendors that are sold to us by single donors ponytail. This ensures the hair will always be premium virgin remy ( which is cuticles facing the same direction) hair that has a consistent texture throughout. Because of our high standards for quality, after purchasing the hair, our team sorts through each ponytail bundle and usually only selects about 20% of the whole order as top quality.
DRAWING THE HAIR
Drawing the hair removes the split ends of the hair. It also helps identify the short pieces of hair which we remove to ensure a fuller density at the ends of each bundle.
Some factories only draw once during production. This is known as Single Drawn hair extensions. Later on you will see we draw twice for the fullest ends possible aka Double Drawn hair extensions.
WASH THE HAIR
We wash the hair to remove dust and germs as clean hair absorbs color much more consistent.
PREPARE SPECIFIC RAW MATERIAL
It is time to prepare specific raw material for your order. For example, if you place an order of 20 pounds, we will prepare about 28 pounds. Why don’t we just prepare 20 pounds, but 28 pounds? Because there is wastage during the production process. By this way, we can make sure the hair cuticles are in the same direction and when you wear the hair, it will not tangle.
To lock the hair in place to ensure the hair cuticles in the same direction. So, the hair won’t be mess in the following production steps.
DYE THE HAIR
We do not use the harsh bleaching process to remove pigments from hair, but rather use an innovative slow and gentle color bath which keeps the hair healthy and strong. Our hair is never processed with harsh chemicals or bleaches. Instead, it is treated slowly and precisely. There is fewer suppliers in China do the slow color bath. Because the time and economic cost are very high. And the time of slow color bath will be longer than normal bleaching. Maybe the production time would be a little longer, but we can make sure the hair cuticles intact. And we also control the temperature of coloring to 30 degrees Celsius so the hair won't be tangle even though after washing many times and installing more than one year.
WASH COLORED HAIR
When all the coloring process is finished, the workers will wash the colored hair again with filtered soft water.
DRY COLORED HAIR
Put the hair in the drying room to remove the water. The temperature in the drying room is about 30 to 50 degrees with a vent to ensure uniform drying up and down.
TITDRAW COLORED HAIR (DOUBLE DRAWN HAIR EXTENSIONS)LE
The workers draw the hair again, but this time, the hair they pull is colored hair. In this process, some hair will fall to the ground. But the workers won’t use that type of hair anymore.
SORTING AND WEIGHING
This step is sorting and weighing. The workers who do this process are very careful. They have to be very accurate when weighting the hair and to divide the these hair into different grams for the prepare of the next process.
For example, if you order tape hair extensions, the next process is to do the tape hair extensions. And if you order hand tied hair weft, the next process is to tie the hair weft by hands.
HAIR QUALITY INSPECTION
The process is also the important process is to do the hair quality inspection. At least 4 times checking before shipping to you. The workers will check the hair quality and trash any hair which is damaged during the process
The hair is packed and shipped to Head Office in Calgary, Alberta where each bundle undergoes a 5th quality check by Scarlett Hair.All approved bundles are than repackaged and ready for stylists use.
