K18Peptide™ BIOMIMETIC HAIR SCIENCE
Clinically proven to repair hair in just 4 minutes, K18Peptide™ renews hair from the inside to heal damage by repairing broken polypeptide chains (keratin chains) responsible hair's strength and elasticity. Travelling into the inner-most layers of hair to reach the core, K18Peptide™ reconnects broken chains and any disturbed disulfide bonds are re-conformed permanently.
Any chemical process that involves an alkaline environment, breaks the keratin chains that keep hair together and strong. K18Peptide™ is the first product in history to reconnect the broken keratin chains.
K18Peptide™ is unlike traditional re-bonding products which only patch damage and repair broken bonds in the cortex. These act like hard glue, but wash out with water. A temporary fix, but will wear down in time.

LUXURY VIRGIN/SLAVIC RUSSIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS
There are many different qualities of hair extensions on the market and sadly, a lot of salons will use cheap product knowing the consumer is unaware. The process for most extensions is to strip the cuticle from the hair and then apply a silicone layer over top so that they feel more like European hair. Unfortunately, this silicone wears off in a few weeks and you are left with dry extensions that matt and tangle easily, break and shed. Moral of the story... "buy cheap...buy twice"
I have been wearing and installing extensions myself for over 10 years, so I pride myself in knowing personally what is best for each individual. Over the years, I've tried the majority of hair extension brands and after-care products available.... and believe me.... you definitely get what you pay for. I choose NOT to use cheaper hair as I have seen personally the damage that it can cause to your own hair after removal. Unfortunately, many salons will use it, while still charging high prices knowing the consumer is usually unaware of the differences. So please, when you start your research, take the time to ask these questions below-
It has taken me years to find a Hair Extension company that ticks all the boxes across every extension type. Malibu Luxury hair extensions have taken the industry by storm to supply the most luxurious, raw, human hair extension available on today's market. A level of quality that surpasses others that actually delivers on their promises. All of their extensions are "Slavic/Virgin Russian" hair, ethically sourced from Europe and each bundle of hair is small, from a single donor and raw. This means less processing, creating a healthy, silky smooth extension that can last up to 24 months ** Malibu Luxury hair extensions are 80% double drawn remy human hair which is cuticle correct aligned. This means the hair is thick from the root to the bottom and all running in the same direction, ensuring natural, thick extensions and longevity. They will not matte, thin or knot like their cheaper counterparts. With over 30 colours to choose from (including exclusive Ombre, Balayage and Piano blends), in lengths from 18" to 30" inches across all extension types.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HAIR EXTENSIONS
What makes Remy, Single/Double Drawn, Raw, Indian, Asian, Russian and Virgin Russian hair extensions different from each other? And why does it matter? Well, it could be the difference between the swishy, glorious hair of your dreams and the tangled matted mess of nightmares.
You’ll see the word remy pop up a lot when looking at hair extensions. It’s nothing to do with where the hair comes from, it just means all the hairs are running in the same direction – from root to tip. So, is it good hair? Yes, and no. Let me explain. The word REMY just means all the hair runs in the same direction, but it still has most of the cuticle removed in an acid bath. Why is that? To make it finer, like Caucasian hair. It’s treated with silicone to make it soft and shiny but this only last for a few washes. If it’s been manufactured properly, it won’t tangle but it will dry out, look dull and be prone to split ends. So, don’t expect it to look ‘reasonable’ for any longer than 6 months. If you see hair described as double drawn, remy, Virgin, Russian hair, you know exactly what you’re getting. But, by only describing hair as ‘remy’, the seller is being deliberately vague – they don’t want you to know what this hair is. Why is that? Either you wouldn’t buy it if you knew, or they couldn’t charge as much. Don’t get me wrong, you want remy hair... but look at it like this – all good hair is remy but not all remy hair is good.
RAW, SINGLE AND DOUBLE DRAWN-
Raw hair is the most basic – sometimes cut from a single donor, it is not washed/highly processed or sorted like most extension hair on the market. The market is flooded with hair that is sourced and swept up from temple floors, drains, which then go through massive chemical processes to make them look and feel healthy. Single drawn hair is washed and has the shortest hairs removed, or ‘drawn’ from the ponytail – it makes it easier to work with. Double drawn is a labour-intensive process where all the washed hair is drawn by the tips and trimmed to remove split or dead ends. This improves the condition and appearance of the hair, it’s shinier and stronger. The hair is then drawn for a second time to sort it into 2″ lengths. Eg- Bundles of 18” will only contain 16”-18” hair, 22″ will only contain 22″-20″ nothing shorter. What does this do? All this work makes double drawn hair fuller, stronger and more luxurious. It’ll last longer than single drawn hair and look better too.
Indian hair is Caucasian, so it is usually finer than Asian hair. Because of this, it doesn’t need to be processed as aggressively as Asian hair. It is naturally available straight/wavy/curly, in shades of black and dark brown. Because of the tonsuring practice which takes place in Hindu temples, there is a huge quantity of Indian hair available. Problem is, most Indian hair is exported to China, where it is mixed with cheaper Asian hair, and damaged by aggressive processing. It is a lower quality of hair, commonly sold by many large companies as it's easy to source.
In the last few years, the market has been flooded with cheap "Russian" hair. The problem is, it’s not true Russian, it’s actually Asian. Until recently, the only hair that had the cuticle intact was Russian hair. The Chinese factories caught on that if they left most of the cuticle on the hair, and processed it more gently, it could pass as "Russian". Why would they do this? It all comes down to money. They’re getting a great price for inferior hair, as are the salons and shops that sell it on to inexperienced and unsuspecting customers. So "Russian" hair isn't always true Russian.
SLAVIC/VIRGIN RUSSIAN HAIR- (RAW/CUTICLE INTACT HAIR)
Slavic/Virgin Russian hair comes from a single donor. It isn't highly chemically processed, which means it is full cuticle, strong and healthy. It’s the diamond standard of hair. Collected from the Western regions of Europe (Russia, Ukraine and Belarus), this hair is perfect as it has the same characteristics as western hair but tends to be stronger. It’s available in colours from light blonde to dark brown, and although it is usually straight, wavy textures aren’t uncommon. After all, virgin hair is a natural product, so each ponytail is unique. If budget isn’t your priority, you won’t find better. Slavic/Virgin Russian hair can last for up to 2 years or sometimes longer. It's soft, strong and the best hair in the world.
