GRADING SYSTEM

Grading of human hair is prevelent in the dry hair industry as it thought to give quality assurance to the user, however many clients do not understand the grading system and are often misled by different vendors in the industry.

WHAT DO HAIR GRADES MEAN?

If you have been looking for a supplier for your hair extensions, you may be wondering what the difference is between 7A, 8A, 8A+, 9A, 10A and 11A grades etc of human hair extensions.

If you are new to the industry these grades can be very confusing, as hair can be listed from anywhere between 7A to 11A. The HIGHER THE NUMBERS GO, the more confusing things become, but not to worry, we are here to help.

At HAIR KINGDOM we understand that at the heart of any hair extension business is superior quality hair, which is why we have made it our mission to help those running their hair extension businesses to understand the in's and out's of the industry, guiding you through the process of choosing the best quality hair, in order for you to run a successful hair extension business or to choose the best and most suitable type for your personal use.

So where does the grading system come from?
So let's start from the beginning; where does the grading system come from? The grade of a set of hair extensions is determined by the factory that sources the hair from the donor.

Contrary to popular belief, the grade of the hair does not actually reflect the quality of each strand, but the length of each strand. Confused…? We were too, so lets explain things in a little more detail.

How Does The Hair Extension Grading System Work?
Its actually pretty simple once you understand how the system works. Rather than thinking of the hair extension grading system as determining the quality of the hair, it actually refers to the proportion of strands per bundle that actually measure the full length of the bundle.

For example, every strand in a bundle of 18″ hair extensions will not measure 18″, as each bundle will be made up of long and short hairs. The more strands that measure the full 18″, the thicker the bundle of hair, and the higher the quality. This is also referred to us single or double drawn, whereby single drawn would be grade 7A/8A, double drawn would be the highest listed grade, typically 10A or higher.

Grades of human hair extensions
Grade 7A 100% human WIRGIN hair single drawn – e.g. in a bundle of 18″, less than 50% of the hairs will measure 18″. EACH BUNDLE WEIGHS 100 GRAMS.

Grade 8A 100% human VIRGIN hair 60% drawn – e.g. in a bundle of 18″, around 60% of the hairs will measure 18″. EACH BUNDLE WEIGHS 100 GRAMS.

Grade 9A 100% human VIRGIN hair 75% drawn – e.g. in a bundle of 18″, around 75% of the hairs will measure 18″. EACH BUNDLE WEIGHS 100 GRAMS.

Grade 10A + 100% human VIRGIN hair 85% drawn e.g. in a bundle of 18″, around 85% of the hairs will measure 18″. EACH BUNDLE WEIGHS 100 GRAMS.

Grade 11A + 100% human VIRGIN hair 99% drawn e.g. in a bundle of 18″, the majority of the hairs will measure 18″. EACH BUNDLE WEIGHS 100 GRAMS.

How to Grade Hair Extensions
Currently, there is not a "Universal Standard" for human hair extension grading.

Technically someone could call their hair extensions 10A despite being smelly, crappy, tangling, non-remy hair.

Here are some factors you should consider when shopping for virgin hair extensions:

Wefts: Single stitch or double stitch? Double stitch wefts should reduce shedding.

Weight: The standard weight of sew-in hair bundles are 100 grams. Is the bundle cheaper because it weighs less?

100% Human Hair: We only sell 100% human hair and think most of our clients prefer this. If you are looking for really cheap hair that will not last, color, or style then consider a synthetic blend.

Single or Double Drawn: Most all human hair sold in the SA market is single drawn hair. The cost to produce a double drawn bundle is much higher because of the shackling process of removing the shorter hairs is much more expensive during the manufacturing process. Expect to pay more for a bundle of human hair that has long hairs all the way to the tips.

Color: Can you color the hair? The best quality virgin hair will lift all the way to a #613 Blonde #60 ash blonde. If you are not coloring the hair you might consider buying a less expensive option if available.

Styling: Human Hair extensions generally should not have an issue styling.

It is important you know exactly what you are buying and understand the system of grading. Often clients are told they are buying 10A, which is infact the characteristics of 7A hair.

Let's go over the type of virgin hair offered here at Hair Kingdom.

What we consider our 9A hair extensions could be a 11A from another company. Seriously! When people ask what grade our hair is we usually go with 7A for the Malaysian hair, 8A for the Brazilian hair, 9A for the Peruvian and RAW for the Vietnamese hair and indian hair, also referred to as 11A.

The Vietnamese weave is just stunning. We would not consider it anything between a 7A, 8A, 9A, or higher. We just call it "Raw" hair that is sourced from the countryside of Vietnam.

Indian Hair Extensions

The RAW INDIAN weave is simply the purest form beauty. Similar to the Vietnamese we would not consider it anything between a 7A, 8A, 9A, or higher. We just call it "Raw" hair that is sourced from the Temples of India.

If you are looking for the best quality hair extensions in the world, Indian or Vietnamese is the way to go!

It is important to understand that, high qaulity, long lasting hair is expensive. At Hair Kingdom we cater for a variety of budgets, and if there's one thing to keep in mind, that is, "COST IS A REFLECTION OF QUALITY", as the saying goes, "Good hair isn't cheap and Cheap hair isn't good". Whilst all hair maybe 100% authentic human hair, each range or grade offers different characteristics.

FOR EXAMPLE: 20″ – PERUVIAN GRADE 9A is R2000 in "Company X", 20" – PERUVIAN GRADE 9A is R4000 in "Company Y", this does not mean it is the same quality of hair at ALL. Firstly, genuine GRADE 9A cannot be sourced under R2000. Again, cost is a reflection of quality. We urge you to reseach and understand the quality vs price factor.
