What is Raw “Single Donor” Hair?

When we speak of Raw Single Donor Hair, we are talking about Luxury Standards! 

Raw Single Donor Hair is the Crème de la crème of the hair industry.  Oppose to purchasing bundles that are sorted from many donors and labeled as such, Raw Single Donor Hair is cut from individual donated ponytails.  1 ponytail from 1 donor and is sold based on the number of ounces the individual has donated.  This means you can purchase anywhere from 2oz, upward of 9oz of 1 individual ponytail. This is great for shelf life because you are only having to deal with the hair, texture, and pattern of 1 individual.  Because of this, the cost is more expensive, but the behavior, look and feel of the hair will have a VERY realistic appearance.  Like it is growing "Straight From The Scalp". 

Hair of this nature will last you many years.  We have customers who have had their Raw Single Donor strands for over 10 years and with proper maintenance, your Raw Single Donor Hair can last just as long. 

Because Raw hair is a single donor's unrefined and all-natural hair, two bundles are identical. This is raw hair is in its natural state, that is not been processed or treated in any way. 

Due to its diversity, you will find that raw hair comes from many origins.  For example, there is Cambodian, Russian, Indian, Burmese, Pilipino, and Laotian, just to name a few.   💋

Is raw hair virgin hair?

The answer is yes! Raw hair is virgin hair. Virgin hair is defined as hair that has never been colored, permed, or chemically processed in any way. The industry uses many terms to define their hair, but Raw Hair is "true" Virgin Hair. 


Did you know that raw hair bundles are single donor hair?

Yes, it's true! Raw hair starts out as single donor unrefined, natural hair bundles, and depending on the vendor, the bundles are then sold as ponytails, or they are mixed with other donated bundles that have very similar textures and patterns and are sold in 3.20z - 3.70z bundles.
