Beauty supply hair vs Bundle stores
Typically, hair from the beauty supply is often referred to as pack hair, and hair from a shop that sells hair extensions is often called “bundles”. Now, you maybe be wondering so what’s the difference between the two if they both sell hair extensions. Well simply put the most important difference lies in the quality of the hair being sold.
Beauty supplies have a wide range of hair options; however, the quality of the hair is never guaranteed and the source is sometimes unknown.
On the other hand, hair from a bundle store is often sourced from more credible sources that only supply high quality 100% human hair. Down below we have listed what to expect when you choose a bundle store vs a brand from the beauty supply.
|Bundle Stores||Beauty Supply|
|Hair quality||Virgin 100% human hair quality.||Quality of hair is often not guaranteed. In some instances, the hair is often mixed with synthetic hair.|
|Time Span||Hair often lasts very long, over 6 months depending on care given. Hair can be reused.||Usually doesn’t last very long and often cannot be reused.|
|Maintenance||Maintenance is relatively easy. Upkeep usually requires a minimal amount of time. Hair can be washed very often. Less tangling and matting.||Upkeep is often a bit more tedious since hair is typically processed – treated with silicones, and cuticles are off stripped off. Therefore, washing can result in knotting and tangling.|
|Cost||More expensive. Higher hair quality often results in a more costly price.||Cheaper. Hair quality is often less inferior; therefore, price is often much cheaper.|
|Color/dye||Hair can be colored and dyed easily.||Difficult to color.|
