Frequently Asked Questions
what is the difference between the DNA Collection and the RNA Collection?
Our DNA (Designer Natural Accessory) collection is perfect for women who desire a durable— quality— product. All DNA bundles are carefully sourced from donors throughout South America and East Asia. Our DNA collection is 100% natural virgin human hair, and is free of any chemical processing or unnatural fillers. Some textures are steamed with water to achieve a specific texture or curl pattern.
We believe so much in our product that we guarantee that all DNA extensions will last 1-3 years with proper usage and care.
Our RNA (Raw Natural Accessory) bundles are sourced from the Philippines, and are considered our premium product line. Each 3.5 oz bundle is collected with the highest level of integrity and quality control. This hair is 100% unaltered, raw, natural, virgin, human hair and is therefore free of any chemical, steam or filers alteration processing. This hair varies in natural color from 1b-4.

How much hair is needed for an install?
12-16 inches – 2 bundles

How is the hair length measured?
Our straight hair is measured in its natural state, whereas, the wavy or curly hair is measured when stretched. You may want to add 4-6 inches when ordering a curly or wavy texture. Keep in mind your size and frame when deciding on a length. An 18" weave will fall longer on a person 5' 2" as opposed to a person 5' 11".
Can the hair be colored?
All of Strand’s hair products can be colored or lightened. We highly recommend color to be done by a trained professional and that a color strand test on a swatch of hair be performed to see how your new color will look.

What is the difference between Raw hair and Virgin hair?
There is a difference between RAW hair and VIRGIN hair. Some virgin hair with curls is processed with steam. Raw hair is hair that is sourced straight from the donors. The only processing that RAW hair has been through is hackling (making sure there are no lice or nits). Virgin hair on the other hand sometimes goes through steam processing— which is how manufacturers produce curl patterns such as Body wave, Deep wave, Deep curl, etc. The steam processing doesn’t mean the hair has been chemically processed, but it does mean the hair is not in its rawest form.
Please know that steam processed wavy patterns and curls do not last as long as Raw wave and curly patterns.
