How to know fake bone straight hair?
The straightness of the hair
As its name suggests, bone straight hair is as straight as a bone. If a hair manufacturer applies the right method to produce the hair, it will get the perfect straightness as its name states. However, many hair vendors just have the hair look glossy in their Instagram adverts. The real hair you receive may not have the right sleek and straight look as it must have. If you see the hair bundles slightly bend at the tips or the body, that’s totally poorly-made bone straight hair.
This is the simplest way to determine if you purchased real or fake hair. Bone straight hair is made to look smooth and silky. It does not tangle easily. In fact, it’s rarely tangled. Human hair bundles, also do not tangle as much as synthetic hair. Hence, if you see the hair gets tangled easily, it’s not real bone straight hair.
Take a burn test
If you buy bone straight human hair, try burning some hair strands. Although it may sound a bit crazy, this technique can tell you exactly if the hair is real or fake human hair.
Use a lighter of an unscented candle and pull a few long strands of hair from your head and hold them above the flame. If it’s real human hair, the hair will burn while fake hair will melt.
Human hair will curl up into a ball and catch fire almost instantly, emitting a strong odor of burning hair. On the other hand, when fake hair is exposed to heat, it melts and emits a burning plastic odor.
Style the hair
Bone straight hair is already styled to get the super straightness. Therefore, it cannot be curled. For real bone straight hair, even if you curl the hair, it won’t hold the curls and will turn back the original shape. So, use your flat iron and curl a small hair section to know if it’s real bone straight hair.
All hair sheds, but if your bone straight hair is human hair, it will not shed as much as the synthetic one. If you see the hair sheds too much, that may be fake human hair.
5 smart tips to buy real bone straight hair
With these above five tips, you can identify whether what you have bought is real or fake bone straight hair. However, in some cases like when you’re in a salon or shopping online, you will not know if the hair is real. Bone straight hair is not cheap at all, and you will never want to burn a hole in your pocket for something that does not worth its price. So, how to avoid buying fake bone straight hair?
Here are some tips and questions you may ask to determine whether your hair is real or not.
Tip #1: Check the reviews/feedback of previous buyers
Whether you are purchasing from a well-known online store or a person or hair company on social media, it is critical that you read their ratings or comments section. But, make sure you evaluate the reviews well.
Although this method may not be 100% accurate since some reviews may be doctored or deceptive, it can still provide you with some level of assurance for the authenticity of what you intend to purchase.
If you are still unsure about the quality of the hair, you should travel to the physical store to inspect it for yourself, rather than relying on reviews and comments. This will help determine whether the hair is of good quality.
Tip #2: Low price does not always good
Even if the seller is advertising a discount or special offer, there is something wrong if the hair quality appears to be reasonably greater than the price. Bone straight hair is one of the most expensive hair items on the market now, so don’t fall into the trap of a strangely low price offer. It’s a sign of a hair scammer. The hair may not be real bone straight hair or it comes with low quality. Chances are that the costliest is original.
Tip #3: Asking where the hair is sourced
Your hair supplier should be able to tell you what kind of hair you are buying. So, don’t hesitate to ask them where the hair comes from. Vietnamese bone straight hair is known for the best hair quality. Although it comes at a higher price than Chinese hair, it serves the best look and durability. And if you run a hair retailing business in Nigeria, you will need to maintain quality consistency. So, be sure that all of the hair you purchase comes from the same source.
Tip #4: Require to get real videos/images of the hair
If you buy the hair online, don’t be fooled by the glossy photoshopped images of bone straight hair on social networks. It’s better to ask the hair vendors to send you real videos/photos of the hair. If possible, try to make a video call and ask them to show you the hair.
Tip #5: After delivery
Once you receive the hair, it is time for you to do the final hair test. You should feel the texture of the hair and how it looks at the time of delivery.
Make sure the wefts and ends are in good shape. It’s worth noting that bone straight human hair is smooth, silky, and tangle-free.
