Frequently Asked Questions
What are cuticles and why is it so important for the hair to have its cuticles intact?
Cuticles are the outer most part of the hair shaft. They are strong and transparent cells that overlap each other up to 12 layers deep. These tiny microscopic structures protect the hair and its inner cell structures from damage. The cuticle is responsible for much of the mechanical strength of the hair fiber. A healthy cuticle is more than just a protective layer, as the cuticle also represents the structure that controls the water content of the fiber. Much of the shine that makes healthy hair so attractive is due to the cuticle. With these intact, you can treat the hair like it's your very own. It can be dyed and chemically processed. We suggest having your hair professionally serviced to protect your investment.
What is the difference between Virgin Hair and Remy Hair?
100% virgin hair is hair that has not been treated with harsh chemicals it is all natural. To prevent tangling, all the hairs are placed with the cuticles in the same direction. This can also be called cuticle hair.
Will hair extensions damage my own hair?
No, as long as they are installed properly by a licensed stylist. Your stylist will guide you through the maintenance and aftercare to ensure both your natural hair and extensions are kept in the best conditions.
How is the length of the hair measured?
Straight hair is measured in its natural state, but our wavy and curly hair is measured when stretched out. When ordering wavy hair, you may consider ordering 2 inches longer to accommodate your length. When ordering curly hair, you may consider ordering 4-6 inches longer to accommodate your desired length.
What is the difference between Indian Hair and Brazilian Hair?
Brazilian Hair has a heavier density than Indian Hair and has a tendency to be somewhat smoother and shinier. Brazilian Hair also tends to withstand humidity with less frizz. Because the South American region is so diverse, some of the curly patterns are coarser than Indian Hair.
What is Co-Washing"?
A co-wash is when you wash your hair only using conditioner. The conditioner is used in this wash to provide your hair with moisture and shine, and also help hydrate the hair. Conditioner is the most important part of the washing process.
Can I dye and/or bleach my virgin hair?
Virgin hair can be dyed and/or bleached, however you still have to be careful as you would with your real hair. Extra care will be needed because the hair is not attached to the scalp and does not retain its own moisture. You must be mindful to keep the hair hydrated and moisturized. Also, when you dye and/or bleach your virgin hair the hair is no longer virgin (it will then be chemically processed). We recommend that you have your Jazari Hair professionally dyed and/or bleached.
What makes Jazari (100% Human Virgin/Remy) hair better than the human hair sold by others?
There are many online websites claiming to sell virgin remy hair at lower prices and it can be misleading. Some hair suppliers may purchase hair from online vendors unaware that it is non-cuticle hair; meaning the hair is not remy hair. The non-remy hair cuticles has been stripped with an acid bath and sometimes even mixed with animal hair and synthetic fibers. Often, this hair is coated in silicone to make it look shiny and soft but it often lose its sheen after a few washes. Finally, when hair is not cuticle-correct, customers suffer from extensive matting, tangles and the hair is not reusable. Jazari travels to the regions of the world where hair is in highest demand and hand select all of our products. No misleading vendors and no middle man!
How much hair will I need to create an entire style?
The amount of hair you'll need will depend on the style you're creating. For a partial weave, you'll only need 11.5 packs of hair. For a full weave, you'll need 2 packs of hair. For a thick full-head sew-in weave, you'll need 3 to 4 packs, depending on how thick you want your hair to be.
For average head size, here is our suggestion:
12"-16": 2 bundles
16"-22": 3 bundles
22"-30": 4 bundles or more
How much hair is in (1) one bundle?
Our bundles of hair weigh 3.3 – 4 ounces, the standard weight for one bundle of hair.
How long will the hair last?
The hair will last 6 months up to a year but usually lasts much longer with proper treatment and care. Constant heat styling, coloring, and improper care will significantly shorten the life span of the hair.
Can I straighten my Curly or Wavy hair?
The answer is YES you can. Some of the deep curly or wavy patterns may be challenging to straighten because the curl pattern is so deep and it will take a long time. It is very important that you use a quality heat protectant on your hair. Your hair is 100% pure human hair so it can become heat damaged just as your own hair would. Also, with curly/wavy hair you risk the chance that your curl pattern will not return after applying excessive heat to your hair repeatedly just as your natural hair would respond. If you continually apply heat to your hair, you will begin to train your hair to be straight. Our suggestion is; if you want curly hair, and then wear your Virgin hair curly. If you prefer to wear your hair straight or wavy, then the wavy textures will be best for you since they offer the most versatility.

Yes, we offer wholesale pricing for stylists, supply stores and distributors. Please contact us online or via email for more information. Our regular online customers that purchase at least 10 packs of hair at one time can also qualify for special pricing, please contact us.
