What are Mink Hair Hair Extensions?

Seems like every one is obsessed with mink hair extensions, but what is mink hair? Is it made from an actual mink? Of course not, if this article we’ll try to explain the best way possible as to what mink hair really is.

The term mink hair usually refers to extremely high quality virgin remy hair, I mean the highest of quality. Virgin hair that last up to 3 years. This hair is usually extremely thick and full. Mink hair extensions color really well, have double stitch weft construction, all the cuticles flow in the same direction, sourced from one single donor and weigh 100+ grams. This hair is extremely luxurious and soft with a natural shine.


These are all traits of high quality hair whether its Brazilian mink, Peruvian, south east asian, or Indian.

When shopping for Mink hair or any other high quality virgin hair, here are some things you should look for.

  • Is this 100% Human Hair?
  • Is the hair Remy or Virgin Remy?
  • Does the hair take well to color?
  • How is the weft constructed
  • How thick and full are the bundles, how much do they weigh?

Remy Hair-  The term remy hair refers to hair in which all the hair follicles flow in the same direction. When the hair is originally collected it is held in a ponytail and cut ensuring that all the hair strands align in the natural direction that it grew. This is why remy hair is known for its ability to be tangle resistant. If you’ve ever had hair that tangled as soon as you washed it, thats a sign of low quality non-remy hair. This hair can sometimes be collected from multiple donors as well. Remy hair can also be lightly processed to preserve its luster. Remy hair can come from Brazil, Malaysia, Peru, Asia or India.

Virgin Hair- Virgin hair is hair that is 100% unprocessed meaning this hair has never been bleached, blow dried, colored, permed, chemically process, smoked around or exposed to any other harsh elements. Virgin hair is more time consuming to collect and must meet rigorous standards to be considered “virgin”. This hair is collected from one single donor with all of the hair follicles flowing in the same direction. Virgin hair  can come from Brazil, Malaysia, Peru, Asia or India.

If you ever see a vendor refer to their hair as 5A, 6A, 8A, they are trying to convey the quality of the hair to you.

Like when you’re in school, the best grade you can get is an “A” but when you do really well you get some pluses added behind the “A”.

If a vendor is saying their hair is “5a” he’s saying its A+++++

5a-7a usually refers to remy hair

7a-10a usually refers to virgin hair
