Getting To Know Hair Extensions Grading.


Hair extensions “A” Grading system is a standard used by companies to advise factories know how thick they want the ends of their hair extensions. It does not actually reflect the quality of each strand, but the proportion of each strand. 

Hair extension thickness grading starts at Grade A.This is the lowest grade available (Very thin and spindly), 8A Grade also known as Double Drawn is the highest grade available.The thicker the bundle of hair, and the higher the quality. This is also referred to as single or double drawn, whereby single drawn would be grade A, double drawn would be the highest listed grade, typically AAAAA or higher. 


How to Grade Hair Extensions.


Currently, there is not a “Universal Standard” for human hair extension grading. There is not a standard hair grades chart that you can pull up and it is accurate. 

Technically someone could call their hair extensions 8A despite being smelly, crappy, tangling, non-remy hair. This is why it is inaccurate when it comes to determining the quality of hair extensions. 

Here are some factors you SHOULD consider when shopping for virgin hair extensions: 


Wefts: Single stitch or double stitch? Double stitch wefts should reduce shedding.

Weight: The standard weight of sew-in hair bundles are 100 grams or about 3.5 oz. Is the bundle cheaper because it weighs less?

100% Human Hair: We only sell 100% human hair and think most of our clients prefer this. If you are looking for really cheap hair that will not last, color, or style then consider a synthetic blend.

Remy or Non-Remy: You want Remy Hair with the cuticles facing the same direction to reduce chances of tangling.

Single Donor or Multiple: Single Donor hair really only matters for a few types of hair including Indian Temple hair or possibly a unique gray hair. Is it necessary? Unless its Raw hair we would say no. Some companies “claim” the hair bundle is from a single donor but I would not pay extra for it.

Single or Double Drawn: Most all human hair sold in the USA market is single drawn hair. The cost to produce a double drawn bundle is much higher because of the shackling process of removing the shorter hairs is much more expensive during the manufacturing process. Expect to pay more for a bundle of human hair that has long hairs all the way to the tips.

Color: Can you color the hair? The best quality virgin hair will lift all the way to a #613 Blonde. If you are not coloring the hair you might consider buying a less expensive option if available.

Styling: Human Hair extensions generally should not have an issue styling.

It is important you know exactly what you are buying and selling to your clients. 

Let’s go over the type of virgin hair offered here at ParrisXtensions.

Indian Hair Extensions-


The wavy & curly Indian hair textures are some of the most sought after in the industry. This is completely unprocessed virgin human hair ethically obtained from temples in India. 

We are talking beautiful and long lasting hair extensions.

What you should know:

  1. The hair is 100% RAW Human Hair
  2. Double Stitch Wefts

The popularity of Indian hair has stayed consistent over the past ten years. Because it is less abundant to find the prices for true raw Indian hair that has been donated at temples will generally be more expensive.

Our Indian hair is 100% pure with no mixing of processed hair. You may find “cheap” Indian hair, but it will not match the quality of the bundles we provide our clients. It has been our goal to offer the best possible raw Indian hair that is available from India

What Are the Best Grade Hair Extensions?


Honestly, It’s really a tough call because technically you could call your hair any “grade” you want.

Everyone is going to have a different opinion on the hair extensions they buy. Your opinion of what’s the best weave will be different than the person next to you. The goal is to find great hair at an affordable price. If it’s labeled 7A, 8A, 9A, or even 10A it really doesn’t matter!


We hope you gained something from this and will shop with confidence knowing our hair extensions are not based on marketing techniques but actually tried and true use and reviews!
