Why are beauty supply store extensions and fake virgin extensions so smooth and silky when I first buy them?
Beauty supply store extensions and fake virgin extensions are silky and smooth because of their silicone coating, which reduces tangling at first. This hair will always feel very smooth in the store, and when you touch it there will be a greasy residue left on your fingers. Once the silicone is washed off, the hair will dry out and become a tangled knot.
