Hair of the Russian type is quite similar to Slavic hair in terms of origin and structure. The main difference is that Russian hair comes predominantly in black shades and has a thicker texture. It does not always easy to dye blonde without compromising the quality, which is why, in this case, it would be a better choice to go for more expensive, natural blonde Slavic hair.
When it comes to hair extension, Russian hair is usually thicker and more coarse compared to Slavic hair. Plus, it’s much easier to purchase colored South Russian hair than its virgin Slavic counterpart. Russian hair looks great on anyone and can be dyed easily, allowing it to withstand several extension procedures.
That quality makes Russian hair far superior to Asian hair, for example.
One of the key advantages of South Russian hair is the value and durability - it’s 100% natural hair, with minimal treatment and its structure intact.
As for the downsides, there’s hardly any - except for the fact that this hair is obviously not available in any light shades and has a thicker texture.
South Russian and Virgin Slavic hair don’t usually come in ready-made packages, nor does it have free rings for choosing the color. Since the hair’s not processed, it’s not unnaturally glossy. These types of hair can come both with snipped-off ends and natural. Any other additional elements (tapes, clip-ins, micro-bonds, etc.) should be ordered separately depending on the length of the tail and the required weight (in grams).
Important note: don’t go looking for “bargains” since most of the hair they offer is typically fake and low-quality. It’s not going to last long and most likely will deteriorate after a few procedures.
