We source our hair exclusively and directly from India.
Did you know that some hair extension companies market their hair as Remy, but in reality it is not? Remy simply means that hair has the cuticle intact and strands are in the same direction. Many dishonest vendors in will gather hair from the floors of salons and temples. Since the hair strands are all mixed up, its impossible to bundle them with the cuticle facing the same direction so they are placed in an acid bath to remove the cuticle. The hair is then coated with silicone and marketed as Remy hair.
The cuticle helps keep hair healthy and shiny, so once the silicone is shampooed out after time, you end up with lifeless and tangled hair .
Monti hair is ethically sourced. Our hair comes from women who make a traditional voyage directly to their Temple to willingly offer their hair as an act of religious devotion and humility. At temples all over India, hair is gathered and becomes the most beautiful hair in extensions to give confidence to women all over the world. The proceeds paid to the temples are reinvested into the community… Helping to fund schools, offer nutritional services and even to open medical clinics. This is how Monti hair is sourced ethically. A gift of devotion… and of thanks.
