What Is The Best Grade Of Hair Extensions?

The History Of Human Hair Grade

The hair grading system was created by some hair extension suppliers in the early 2010s as a way to determine the quality of hair sold to buyers and to set their companies apart from those that might have been selling lower-quality hair.

But there is no formal regulation for the hair grading system, many hair companies are not honest about hair quality. For instance, they may use top hair grades to sell you low-quality hair for a high price. It means it is difficult for you to ascertain whether the hair is actually as high quality as advertised until you get it into your hands.

In order to get the highest quality hair at an affordable price, you must learn about the different grades of hair extensions to avoid confusion and save some money in the long run.

Before being aware of the different grades of hair extensions, let’s quickly go over the most important hair extension types.
