Human Hair extensions are measured in Grades. The "A" grading system is a standard used by companies to advise manufacturers/factories to know how thick they want the ends of their hair extensions.The lower the grades, the cheaper the hair and the lowest longevity of the hair extensions. And the higher the grades the thicker they are at the ends.
Hair extension thickness starts at A Grade, this is the lowest grade available (very spindly at the ends) through to 7A Grade (also known as Double Drawn). At sntcollections, we use high grade hair extensions to ensure you achieve a natural full look. Our human hair extensions are graded from 6A Grade - 9A Grade. You can buy online with confidence that you can purchase high grade human hair extensions!
How Does The Hair Extension Grading System Works?
Rather than thinking of the hair extensions grading system as determining the quality of the hair, it actually refers to the proportion of strands per bundle that actually measure the full length of the bundle.
For example, every strand in a bundle of 20″ hair extensions will not measure 20″, as each bundle will be made up of long and short hairs. The more strands that measure the full 20″, the thicker the bundle of hair, and the higher the quality. This is also referred to as single or double drawn, whereby single drawn would be grade A, double drawn would be the highest listed grade, typically AAAAA or higher.
Grades Of Human Hair Extensions
Grade A 100% human hair single drawn – e.g. in a bundle of 20″, less than 50% of the hairs will measure 20″.
Grade AA 100% human hair 50% drawn – e.g. in a bundle of 20″, around 50% of the hairs will measure 20″.
Grade AAA 100% human hair 60% drawn – e.g. in a bundle of 20″, around 60% of the hairs will measure 20″.
Grade AAAA+ 100% human hair 75% drawn e.g. in a bundle of 20″, around 75% of the hairs will measure 20″.
Grade AAAAA+ 100% human hair 90% drawn e.g. in a bundle of 20″, the majority of the hairs will measure 20″.
It is true that curly hair is very difficult to manage, style, care for and maintain. If you have curly hair extension, you may have also noticed that it gets dry faster, is more affected by humidity and is more prone to breakages and split ends. Instead of just sit there and complain about the challenges you are facing, why not you do something to maintain your curls natural and gorgeous. Below are some of the way to maintain your curly hair weave:
- As we have already highlighted above, curly hair is drier and more vulnerable to damage than other types. It is, therefore, important that you go for shampoos and hair conditioners that have been specifically made for this kind of hair. Make sure you do some research before buying a product. And don’t worry about the prices.
- No hair type should be shampooed too often, including curly hair. While this could lead to its getting even more dry, towel-drying, brushing, and blow-drying too frequently could cause even more damage. In fact, the less you manipulate your hair, the better.
- A daily moisturizing routine that helps revitalize, protect and de-tangle is important for weave care as virgin hair from human donors normally does not come pre treated to keep curls bouncy indefinitely.
- Put your hair "up" at night. Plait or pin curl your hair before going to sleep. This is important in preventing tangles. Never sleep with loose wet hair, for it may tangle while you sleep.
- Sleep with a satin cap or on a satin covered pillow.
- Finger style or use a wide tooth comb only, when hair is damp.
- Do not comb dry curls for you will disrupt the curl pattern and cause the hair to frizz.
- To refresh curls, spray with plain water, leave in conditioner
