Please don’t buy into the hype unless you want terrible, cheap quality hair extensions that will end up damaging your natural hair and breaking off your edges with its bad chemicals processing of the Generally, synthetic fiber that cannot be curled or heated.
However, beware of some types of hair fibers on the hair market that are made with a heat-friendly or heat-resistant fiber, meaning the hair can be styled using a low/medium heat setting and can be curled, blow-dried, or flat ironed to achieve a different hairstyle. Heat friendly/resistant synthetic fiber can withstand heat up to 350°F/180°C. Synthetic hair should not be colored.
Again beware of the marketing schemes and the falsehood in the hair industry market at Malaysia Hair Imports we only use the best 100% Virgin Remy Human Hair.
Where Did The Term Mink Hair Come From?
So, there is such a thing as real mink hair or mink fur that comes from an animal we call a mink. This animal has very short, dark brown hair that is silky. You can find this same commonality in the extensions we are talking about. Since the beginning of time hunters would take the fur off of these animals to create high-quality clothing. But like we mentioned before the animal, and the hair weaves are two different things. Hair companies take the similarity of the soft, thick texture and apply that to the class or standard of this particular hair weave.
What Exactly Is Mink Hair?
To describe mink here, we first need to be clear about what is VIRGIN HAIR? So, any human hair is from a living donor that has never had any chemical treatment, dyes, or other harmful products in their hair.
These donors then give their hair to sellers or manufacture who will clean, process, and make sure the weave is perfect and in selling condition. When no chemical treatment is on the hair, it is considered a virgin quality and that is where the term originates.
Now on to mink hair, this type is just a hair brand name. In general, the most natural characteristics you’ll see in mink hair are; bundles are full/thick, do not tangle easily, cuticles are all facing the same direction, hair is easy/effortless to color, double stitch wefts, and natural glossy texture. So in summary mink weaves are amazing in quality and customer satisfaction.
Marketing In Mink Hair
Some of the issues that a lot of consumers come across is that they purchase Mink hair, but it doesn’t have the qualities that we mention throughout this blog post. The exciting fact about mink hair is that you can market it with many different hair types. So, basically what I’m saying is that mink hair is also considered a marketing word.
Many HAIR VENDORS will call Peruvian, Indian, and Malaysian Hair “mink” as a selling strategy. If we’re honest mink has no real technical classification, and it can become any hair type that sellers want it to be. But no need to fear like we are mentioning if you are purchasing mink hair weave you will notice critical characteristics that sellers suggest that will make it visible you are buying premium hair.
Taking the time to understand and research specific weave terms will be beneficial, so you can spend less money but still receive quality mink hair weave.
Mink Hair Facts
Technically, you could call any hair you sell “Mink Hair,” but in general it tends to be a higher quality hair extension.
If you do some research, other hair companies will say their mink hair is “thicker,” “remy hair,” “single donor hair,” or about anything else they can come up with to justify the price increase.
Marketing is a huge part of selling hair extensions. Going with the trend of saying you have “Mink Hair” would be consistent with the market.
We could easily say our Brazilian Body Wave hair extensions are mink hair weave. This hair colors very well, the bundles are full, cuticles are facing the same direction to reduce tangling, double stitch wefts to reduce shedding, and everything else you would expect from a quality hair extension.

Common Mink Hair Questions
Let’s go over some of the common questions our team gets asked related to Mink Hair.
Where can I find Mink Hair reviews?
Good question. Mink hair reviews are just like a regular hair review. The only difference is the seller of the weave decided to call it mink hair weave instead of Brazilian. You should focus on just finding great hair extensions instead of something called mink.
Who are the best Brazilian mink hair, vendors?
Well, if you are looking for the best wholesale hair vendor for hair extensions then look no further than Private Label Extensions. Yes, we could be a little biased. We specialize in offering different levels of wholesale weave that you could brand as “Mink Hair” if you choose.

Marketing Hair Extensions
Many people use different terms to market their hair extensions.
Hair Extension Marketing is going to play a significant role in your success in selling hair.
The key is for you to understand all the terms used for describing hair whether they are fact or fictional. If you focus on great products at affordable prices, then you are on the right track.
The questions you should ask when buying hair extensions are:
- How do the hair extensions color?
- Is the hair Remy with the cuticles facing the same direction?
- Is this 100% human hair?
- What is the weft construction? Double stitch?
- How much do the bundles weigh? The standard is around 100 grams.
WHAT IS VIRGIN HAIR?
Virgin Hair is hair that is in its natural state. No chemical changes, no color, has not been processed, and all cuticles* are intact.
WHAT IS REMY HAIR?
Remy hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair. The term “Remy” means all the hair cuticles are healthy, intact, and flow in the same direction from the root to the tip. The cuticle is the outer layer of the hair strand and the structure is similar to the overlapping of shingles on a rooftop. Remy hair is typically collected directly from a woman’s head, and as it is cut it is held in a ponytail to ensure no hair strands fall to the floor. Remy hair will also last longer than non-Remy hair. Therefore, it can be reused, flat ironed, and colored.
HOW TO MEASURE THE LENGTH OF YOUR HAIR?
Each texture must be measured differently. The Braziilian hair extensions should be measured to the fall of the hair. Start 0 at the weft and measure to the ends of the bundle. The Brazilian Wavy and Brazilian Curly hair extensions must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Again, start 0 at the weft; pull the hair straight from the ends, and the length will be at the tips of the hair. Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
CAN THE HAIR BE STRAIGHTENED OR CURLED?
Your new Hairutopia 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-protecting product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours.
CAN I COLOR MY NEW HAIR?
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 hair. Chemical damage has no reverse button.
Minimally, no hair is absolutely perfect (Any company who states this phrase, as sales pitch is not being honest. Our company is an honest supplier). We have reinforced machine wefting, to minimize shedding to nearly none. You may see a few strands here or there, but nothing troubling. The most effective way to avoid shedding is by sealing the wefts.
WHAT DOES CO-WASH MEAN?
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. When you first receive your extensions it is important to co-wash the hair as it has been through HHC employee hands, manufacturers’ hands, packaging, etc. Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
HOW MANY BUNDLES SHOULD I ORDER?
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.
The amount of hair you will need will depend on how full you would like your hair and the length you desire. Here is a general rule we use:
12″ – 14″ 2 Bundles
16″ – 22″ 3 Bundles
24″ – 30″ 4-5 Bundles
