If you want to experiment with hair extensions, you should know the following terms: Single drawn and double drawn and the difference between them. This article will partially understand what hair extensions you should buy.
Single drawn hair extensions have their hair cut from one single donor and then being placed in a weft. Most extensions are sold as single drawn because the limited cost of production. Hair in each strand barely has the same length, so the hair becomes thinner when getting close to the ends, while it is thicker on the top. Single drawn extension is the most common extension type because less work involved in processing and low cost.
Double drawn hair extensions have shorter hair removed by hand, workers cut the hair ends by hands so the full bundle will remain the same fullness from top to bottom, then the hair will be sewn in a weft. This process increases the quality of hair extensions and will provide you with a fuller appearance, although you will pay more on double drawn hair extensions, the quality and volume are better, will certainly last longer.
|Comparison||Single drawn hair extensions||Double drawn hair extensions|
|Length||Hair in each strand barely has the same length
A standard bundle of single drawn hair will contain around 50% full length hairs, and 50% different combination of lengths. This means that the hair becomes thinner when getting close to the ends, while it is thicker at the tip of the bundle
|Hair in each strand has the same length
This means that the hair will be thick from root to tip (contains 70-80% full length hairs)
|Cost||Low cost, cheaper than double drawn hair extensions
Because less work involved in processing
|More expensive but more qualified
Because workers have to remove shorter hair and cut the hair ends by hands. Then the hair will be sewn in a weft.
|Origin||Single drawn hairis cut from the ponytail of one donor only
Therefore, the hair length is uneven
|While Single Drawn hair is uneven, Double Drawn Hair is even from either side.|
|Who suitable for||Single drawn hair can give you natural locks.
Because if hair naturally grows from our scalp, each strand of our hairs often have a different length. And this is apparently one feature of single drawn hair
|Double drawn haircan give you voluminous locks. Because the hair extensions are very thick right to the tip, a full bodied look will be achieved with ease.|
