I feel like I have already touched basis with this in a previous blog post, but I don't mind saying it again.
As you may know Raw Indian hair is the best hair on the market if you find an honest vendor. Many people claim to sell Raw Indian Temple hair, but more than a few are lying. Buyers beware by knowing what's fake and what's real.
The truth about Raw hair is that it comes straight from the donors head, and has only been washed, conditioned, and checked for lice. Because of this minimal process, raw hair tends to look more natural. All cuticles are aligned which makes it superior to other hair when it comes to tangling. Buyers must be mindful of the fact that once the raw hair is cut from the donor, the cuticles are no longer receiving nutrients from the scalp so it is up to you to keep the hair cleaned, deep conditioned, and moisturized. It's also best to find a product that can help fight humidity frizz as you would do with your natural hair. Its not protected by a silicon coating like Remy hair so this hair needs a little extra TLC. I recommend using Sauvé Professional Moroccan Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner.
With Raw Hair no two bundles look the same, and the wave or curl pattern isn't uniform throughout the bundle. It is very possible for a person to have different curl patterns throughout their head, and the hair collected from this donor will show that. You may also find that one of your bundles might be a shade or two lighter than the other. This is perfectly normal since everyone doesn't share the same hair color. No worries, most vendors will try to match hair of the same shade when selling to prevent the customer from having to color the hair to match the bundles.
Be smart with your new Raw Hair and try to minimize the heat you use on it. Heat can and will cause damage.
Now that you know what to look for when shopping for raw hair and a few tips on how to care for it, you are now free to shop.
