1. Raw hair differs significantly from virgin hair. Both are extensions of human hair, but raw hair is unaltered. Virgin hair has been steam processed to give it texture i.e. deep wave, loose wave etc. Raw hair is not steamed or chemically altered and feels like human hair growing out of your own head of hair. Therefore, Raw Hair requires more love, care and attention. 
  2. Because raw hair has not been chemically altered or steam processed, it usually comes in only three textures. Raw hair occurs mainly in straight, natural wave and in curly, which is rare. Styles such as deep wave, kinky curly, body wave, etc. usually do not exist with raw hair. In order to achieve those patterns, be mass-produced and marketable, coarse hair would have to undergo a professional steam treatment.
  3. Raw hair is of the utmost best quality on the market, but keep in mind that it will be more expensive. Unlike virgin hair, raw hair can last for many years with proper care. Quality virgin hair is also relatively pricey but you usually pay more with raw hair.
