Busting the Mink Hair Myth and Why It's Better

Jan 3rd 2018

Mink coats are luxuriously soft and seductively beautiful and exude class and undeniable quality, and the same goes for mink hair. But hold on! No cute, little fuzzy animals are killed in the production of mink hair. It is, rather, just the term applied to high-quality virgin hair. Maybe it's a bit faddish, but it does correctly convey the sense of the softness, silkiness, and durability of mink hair.

What Is Mink Hair . . . Really?

First let's be clear about virgin hair. It is human hair from a single living donor that has never been subjected to any kind of chemical treatment. It was grown out by the donor without ever having been dyed or otherwise chemically processed. As a result, virgin hair is more versatile, is easier to work with, accepts new color more readily, and has a silky, natural feel. Mink hair just takes this quality to another level.

The Quality Difference

Mink hair is the highest-quality virgin hair. This quality ensures that your mink hair is extremely thick, lusciously full, and usually longer than run-of-the-mill virgin hair.

And like virgin hair, mink hair has all the follicles flowing in the same direction. When you combine that with the extra softness, it's easy to see why mink hair is so tangle resistant. This makes it delightfully easier to wash and comb out than other hair.

The Longevity Difference

Besides offering the best results in extensions, virgin hair is far more durable. If cared for properly, most virgin hair extensions can last up to 18 months, and Diamond Dynasty Virgin Hair can last you up to two years.

And mink hair takes longevity a step and a year (or two) further. A quality mink hair extension has the potential to last you up to to three years. In addition to holding its own lustrous dark-brown color well, mink hair also readily accepts coloring. So if you need high-quality extensions that will last years and can be treated almost like your own hair, then mink hair is the obvious choice.

You can rest easy, then: mink hair has nothing to do with mink coats, except for a similar high quality without the high price tag. At Diamond Dynasty Virgin Hair we have assorted mink hair bundles to meet your fashion needs, and we still have some holiday bargains going.
