Below are frequently asked questions. If you have a question that has not been addressed, feel free to contact us via email.
Virgin Hair is hair that is completely unprocessed and in tact. To qualify as Virgin Hair it must meet righteous standards including: not been permed , dyed, colored, bleached, chemically processed in any way. This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction.

5A hair is the lowest quality of hair we sell at The Hair Gawds. It is still 100% human hair without a synthetic blend. It can be dyed up to a #27 with flawless results. It is cut from several sources and lacks the consistency that 6A and 7A hair provides. It can be straightened or curled and will return to its natural state, however, this grade will only last you about 1-2 installs (or 1-6 months).

6A hair is also 100% virgin human hair without any synthetic mix. It can be dyed to a #27 with flawless results. 6A is the most popular hair on the market and is considered "mid-market". With proper care, 6A hair can last up to one year.

7A hair is 100% virgin human hair cut from ONE donor with full cuticle aligned, o acid bath, and naturally unprocessed. 7A hair can be dyed/bleached up to #613 color with flawless results. 7A hair can be used well over 2 years with proper care and maintenance. 7A hair is currently the highest confirmed grade of hair on the market.

A Bundle is 1 piece or 1 "pack of hair". Bundle is the term used when describing virgin hair because the hair is essentially bundled together once collected from the donor and sewn onto a weft. Each bundle weighs approximately 3.2-3.5oz.

Brazilian hair is very popular among virgin hair options, excellent durability, low to medium luster. It is favored for the thickness, soft, easily blends with hair textures, contains body & natural shine.

Peruvian hair appears to be very thick but is very light and very soft. It is coarser than Brazilian and Malaysian hair. Peruvian hair can be installed with 4 bundles and still appear light. It can easily be maintained.

A closure is a hair piece is designed with a silk or Swiss lace base to enhance the finished look of your weave. It will allow you to part your hair any way you choose with ease and confidence. It is commonly attached onto a cornrow base by sewing around the perimeter. You can also use wig clips to attach the piece in place. Our closures also have a lace front, for those who would like to use lace front adhesives.
We ship internationally.
Custom color can be requested. It will delay your shipping time. Please note that once hair is dyed it is no longer considered virgin or unprocessed.
Our straight hair is measured in its natural state, whereas, the wavy or curly hair is measured when stretched. You may want to add 4-6 inches when ordering a curly or wavy texture. Keep in mind your size and frame when deciding on a length. An 18" weave will fall longer on a person 5'2" as opposed to a person 5' 11".

The amount of hair required depends on the look you want. Here is a simplified guide:

  • Full head sew in weave: Hair 10" to 16" long
  • 4 ounces = A half head of extensions (to add body or length)
  • 8 ounces = A full head of extensions
  • 6 - 8 ounces = A full head of extensions with a closure piece or frontal piece.
  • Full head sew in weave: Hair 18" to 24" long
  • 8 ounces = A half head of extensions (to add body or length)
  • 12 ounces = A full head of extensions
  • 10 - 12 ounces A full head of extensions with a closure piece or frontal piece

All hair will require some maintenance after purchase to maintain its quality.

STRAIGHT HAIR requires very little maintenance and/or very little products to maintain its original pattern.

BODY WAVE requires low to medium levels of maintenance. You will have to re-style after a while to keep wave pattern consistent. (example: Flexi rods at bedtime)

CURLY/DEEP WAVE requires the most amount of maintenance. These patterns require love and care to keep the original pattern intact.
