We hear more and more often that the quality of hair in the hair systems just is not what it used to. The answer is simple - supply and demand. The demand for human hair in the hair replacement industry started to really rise in the 1980's and has been taken over by the hair extension industry in the 90s to the present. This is similar to the situation we are all natural oils. When demand rises and supply costs sky rocket set to best quality hair available. In wholesale hair replacement industry finds itself in a difficult place, do I increase my cost of goods for better quality and raise my prices or do I keep my prices where they are and take a lower quality or do I take a lower quality and raise my price as everyone else? One of the 3 above could happen. If you lose your hair system hair quickly, tangling into a nest or dry up and become un-Styleable you are not alone.
Here is what is happening. Old supply of top quality human hair has been exhausted for years. We see the inclusion of hair during and after the ethnic wars in Eastern Europe. (Yes, a lot of hair that is supplied to the hair replacement industry does not come from war torn areas and in most cases of hair taken from the deceased or imprisoned for sale to the vendor's hair.) The majority of hair used in the production of replacement hair comes from India and China. In India hair gathered from temples where it is removed from the head for religious reasons and in China the hair easy to harvest in areas where girls grow their hair long and have it cut for sale. With the increase of Western influence in the world more and more women are now cutting their hair and chemical processes and not rely on selling their tresses to help contribute to the economy of the family. All the small changes will cause a decrease in the availability of human hair as the years pass.
The good news is that some producers are very smart hair replacement began several years ago experimenting with a new high-tech synthetic fibers. The new synthetic human hair mainly compete with Nylon or Polyester fiber has been developed to mimic the human hair as closely as possible with a lighter reflection due to artificial cuticle and the diameter is more like a "European" human hair. Though not for everyone yet, because fast becoming preferred blend with existing human hair for hair replacement. Synthetic fibers are stronger and have better color retention and will effectively buffer the poor quality human hair, hair style mixed by giving the wearer a better retention, color retention and less hair loss in their hair replacement.
If you experience less wear out of your hair replacement system, you may want to consider adding some of the High Tech fibers next to the system and get used to this new trend, after all it can be avoided if we continue to use up the source of human hair at the level we're go.
