            -Aliexpress hair is mostly from Mainland China

            -Aliexpress has a LOT of vendors. Hundreds. All with different textures, products, and prices.

            -Aliexpress hair sometimes comes on sale or with a free gift (which is nice of them)

 

So knowing all of this, what makes Aliexpress Hair different than US Virgin Hair Boutiques? A LOT. Check out the unbiased comparison below ! (Note: These are highly tested opinions, not facts)

 

Quality

 

We all want our hair to look and feel good for a long time, so it’s important to distinguish the good hair from the bad hair. Virgin hair is classified on a scale from A-7A , with A being straw-like cluster of poor decisions and 7A being the hair equivalency of Beyonce. Most quality hair boutiques carry 5A-7A because it grants customers the ability of flexibility and durability, while maintaining its original feel. 

 

The quality of Aliexpress hair truly varies, as there are too many vendors to classify all of the hair good or bad and different people have different view on what truly is good or bad as a result of this.  My personal experience with Aliexpress hair is that the bundles do NOT bleach well, hair does shed ferociously,  and the bundles are small.  I have, however, heard from a few women that state their hair from Aliexpress was pretty OK and that there were no major complaints about the hair.  So the quality truly depends on what vendors you purchase from.  Keep in mind that some virgin hair boutiques may have bad quality hair, but never Electric Cherry!

 

Price

 

The price of hair is a major influence in deciding what hair to purchase.  Standard Brazilian Body Wave Bundles at 12 inches average from $65-$95 in virgin hair boutiques. On Aliexpress? Expect to pay on average $45-$75 for that bundle.  Pretty much, Aliexpress is MUCH more reasonably priced than virgin hair boutiques, but you do get what you pay for.  Virgin Hair Boutiques, however, do have sales and promotions where they reduce their prices to entice customers to purchase. A cool new trend that hair boutiques are offering are payment plans.  Yes, you can literally pay on virgin hair in installments until you pay it completely off and it’s yours! Purchasing virgin hair is just as much about timing as it is about price.

 

Location/Delivery

 

The final and most important factor in the virgin hair equation, actually getting the hair ! Virgin Hair Boutiques have a stronger advantage in regards to location and delivery because of the ability to have a physical store and an online store, whereas Aliexpress only offers an online store, which limits how customers can access their prospective hair. 

 

Delivery time for online stores also matters.  A great majority of hair vendors from Aliexpress are in Mainland China, meaning that shipping times can vary from the traditional 5-7 business days to an astonishing 3-4 weeks! Virgin Hair Boutique traditionally have a much more reasonable time span for delivery times, some even offering expedited or overnight shipping. 

 

The Wrap Up

 

In a nutshell, Aliexpress Virgin Hair offers a wide range in product vendors, textures, price, and mixed quality.  Virgin Hair Boutiques offer dependability and convenience in product delivery and a consistency in quality and prices.  Both types of hair offer perks and disadvantages, but the key component of quality is the determining factor between where to order from.
