Indian Temple Hair is the finest quality, natural human hair that has been ethically sourced from individual donors at temples throughout India.
Thousands of women make a pilgrimage to holy temples in India (one of the most popular being the Tirumala Venkateswara Hindu Temple on the coastal state of Andhra Pradesh) to offer up their hair as a gift to the Hindu God as a sign of religious devotion and as a way of giving thanks for their blessings.
The temples sell the donated hair to exporters to be used as hair extensions around the world. The money raised by the temples is then used to help run the orphanages and hospitals in their local communities.
Natural human hair looks and feels much better than synthetic hair and the quality of Indian Temple Hair is considered to be the best human hair as it hasn’t been subjected to harsh Western shampoos, hair colouring and other treatments that can damage hair.
The donated hair is washed by hand and then it goes through a gentle process of preparation for use as hair extensions. This includes brushing the hair until it is completely smooth and being neatly tied into bundles of 200 strands each.
Using the market-leading Mini Micro Ring Method and working with this finest quality natural, human hair ensures you can have the hair you’ve always dreamed of and no one will be able to tell that you’ve had hair extensions.
