Human hair extensions 101

Every hair strand has transparent cuticle layers forming the outermost part of a hair strand protecting the hair shaft. The more healthy and intact the cuticles are, the more shiny and smooth the hair surface is; adding a beautiful luster to the hair. 

Looks to be simple; but the solution is difficult as a hair strands’ dia is .04 to .12 mm and a donor may have 120,000 to 150,000 hair strands. In comparison, a table salt grain / fine beach sand is 2X bigger than a hair strand. 

And so evolved VAERI CRAFTIN, a staged manufacturing technique framed by VAERI to deliver cuticle rich high quality Indian Hair in its purest natural form.

It takes 21 days for us to make ready to ship hair extensions from the RAW temple hair.
