For those who wear weaves or hair extensions, authentic human hair is the gold standard in artificial hair integration. And of all different types of extensions and weaves made from real human hair, Mongolian virgin hair is one of the best in the market.
Mongolian hair is incredibly high in demand because the strands are shiny and strong. The hair strand is flexible and lighter too. In fact, Mongolian hair is the perfect balance between Chinese and Indian hair. Chinese hair tends to be fine and prone to breakage while Indian hair is coarser with thicker strands.
Mongolian hair comes in virgin and treated hair. And in between categories, they vary according to types:
Virgin Mongolian Kinky Curly Hair: The length is around 12 to 26 inches. This is a great choice for those with naturally kinky hair because integration will look natural.
Virgin Mongolian Loose Curly Closure: the length is around 14 inches. The extension is applied on the crown area to blend with the natural hair. This Mongolian hair extension is best for those with women with loose curls.
Virgin Mongolian Loose Curly Hair: The length is about 12 to 26 inches and is suitable for those with medium to large curls. This hair type is full-bodied and is best for those with limp, thin hair.
Virgin Mongolian Straight Human Hair: The length is about 12 to 26 inches. This hair extension is extremely lightweight but durable. This is an excellent choice for those who have naturally straight hair.
Benefits of Mongolian Hair Extensions/Weaves
Light and Durable
If you have an issue over lightness, then we strongly recommend choosing Mongolian hair extension. The hair strands are not coarse or thick so collectively, the extensions are very light. But despite the lightness, the hair is durable and flexible too. It can be styled a million ways and it will not lose its shininess or body.
Easy to Maintain
You don’t have to apply pricey hair products to style or maintain Mongolian hair extensions or weaves. This goes especially for virgin Mongolian hair. The hair strands are very flexible so they can be styled in so many ways without losing their luster. In addition, maintenance is very easy too. Use your usual hair styling products during the day. At the end of the week, use a clarifying shampoo to banish product buildup and restore shininess. We also recommend applying an emollient conditioner each week to keep the strands strong and hydrated.
Mongolian hair is very versatile. it can be straightened or curled and it will return to its natural state when wet. It blends easily with relaxed hair or naturally curly state.
Drawbacks of Mongolian Hair Extensions/Weaves
The huge demand for Mongolian hair extensions or weaves caused prices to surge that’s why this type of hair extension is more expensive than say, Chinese, Indian or even Brazilian hair.
Although some Mongolian hair is cheaper than others, the quality might not be at par with more expensive Mongolian hair. In addition, some “virgin” Mongolian hair might not be virgin at all. Our suggestion is to purchase these types of hair extensions from a reputable retailer to get your money’s worth.
