Processed hair is hair that has undergone a chemical or steam change to achieve certain textures and curl patterns. Even though the hair is processed it is still great quality. We offer processed hair to our clients who are looking for great beauty products on a budget. Our processed hair textures have a life span of 2 plus years with proper care.
Raw hair is hair that has undergone no chemical changes, no coloring, has not been bleach bathed, have not been mixed with animal fibers and all cuticles are intact.The cuticle is the outer layer of the hair strand and the structure is similar to the overlapping of shingles on a rooftop. Meaning the natural pattern (curl, wave or straight) that the hair has grown is what will be sent to you. When you purchase hair from the beauty supply stores 100% of the time the hair cuticles have been sewn to the weft in all different directions resulting in the layers of the hair strand to rub together ultimately causing the hair to tangle. Raw hair is always collected directly from a woman’s head. It is held in a ponytail to ensure no hair strands fall to the floor and is then cut from the top of the ponytail making sure all cuticles remain in the same direction. A lot of times hair manufacturers will combine animal fibers with human hair as a way to increase supply and cheat the system. That is why on some cases the hair will burn or melt when being curled or flat ironed. Intense Beauté’s Raw hair is the best quality you can get on the market as the collection of our hair is authentically sourced leaving no room for worry.

Each texture must be measured differently. Our virgin straight hair can be measured by the natural eye from the top of the weft to the ends of the bundle. Our curly textures must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
Your new virgin hair extensions can be treated as if it is your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will. Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protectant product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleeping hours.
Natural Black and Natural Brown are the natural shades that our donors grow their hair. We do not change or alter the color or texture in any way.
Any chemical processes should be done by a professional or at least consulted by one. This purchase is an investment for you and chemically altering the hair can possibly damage it. Though, our virgin hair extensions can handle a coloring process very well, please be cautious. Once the hair is chemically altered incorrectly, the cuticle can become damaged and overexposed causing fraying, breakage, dryness, and tangling. This in turn will affect the overall look and feel of your luxury MtrlGirl experience. Chemical damage has no reverse button.
There will be minimal shedding just like shedding of your own natural hair. No hair is absolutely perfect. (Any company who states this phrase as a sales pitch is not being honest.) We have reinforced machine wefting, to minimize shedding to nearly none. You may see a few strands here or there, but nothing troubling.
Co-washing simply means conditioner washing. It is a key task in extending the life of your extensions and keeping them healthy. We recommend a co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs.
The key to determining how many bundles to purchase depends on the lengths you are wanting. The longer bundles have a shorter weft/track as the shorter bundles have longer wefts/tracks.
For a full sew in weave we recommend 3-4 bundles of hair. For lengths over 18”, we recommend ordering 4-5 bundles of hair. If you desire a hair weave with a lot of volume, you will need 5-6 bundles or 4.5 bundles with a closure. A closure piece is a great addition to your install, as you will have no leave out. This is considered a full-protected style and none of your hair will be exposed.
Unfortunately we do not offer any refunds only exchanges. Please contact us at email@example.com and we will be more than happy to assist you.
Orders generally take about 5 days to process depending on order volume. Once processing is completed your order will be shipped and delivered to you within 2-3 if within the USA.
Yes all of our hair extensions are 100% Human Hair.
The longevity of our hair depends solely on how well you take care of your extensions. With proper care, our virgin extensions can be reused and reinstalled and last a min of one year but can survive way beyond that. Our virgin hair can last up until 3 years and raw extensions up to 5 years.
Constant heat styling, coloring, and improper care will significantly shorten the lifespan of your hair extensions.
You absolutely can! These extensions are 100% Virgin Human Hair which means you can treat them as you would your own natural hair.
Yes you can swim in your hair extensions but we suggest putting hair in a ponytail or a bun to keep hair from tangling while wet.
