How to tell real raw hair and fake raw hair


Some women like to follow influencers when buying hair, while others base their choices on the appearance of the hair itself. There are even those who mistakenly believe that flat-headed bundles must be raw or high-quality hair. Unfortunately, some vendors take advantage of these habits to sell poor-quality hair, leaving many customers disappointed.

As a raw hair factory owner, Jacky is here to help you distinguish between high-quality genuine raw hair and fake raw hair.

2. Bleaching testing (the best testing method)
