The Difference Between Double Drawn Vs. Single Drawn Hair Extensions

The Difference Between Double Drawn Vs. Single Drawn Hair Extensions

What is double-drawn and Single-drawn Drawn Hair? I'm sure you have come across these terms many times. Below is an explanation of the difference between double-drawn and single-drawn hair for hair extensions or hair systems.

Single Drawn Hair 

1) In single-drawn hair the top of the weft is thick, and the ends will naturally taper.

2) The bottom of the weft becomes narrow 

3) Comparatively, this is the natural look of a hair. In the below pic, you can see that the weft is narrow at the bottom as compared to the top of the weft because it is single-drawn hair. 

Now, how narrow it goes at the bottom completely depends on your manufacturer. Many manufacturers intentionally make the weft narrow at the bottom to reduce their cost of making and to increase their profits. Few manufacturers provide you with samples of good quality and then in the subsequent orders they start providing you the narrow-end wefts. These are some of the unethical practices companies follow to reduce their cost.

Double Drawn Vs. Single Drawn Hair Extensions

Double Drawn Hair 

In double-drawn hair, the weft will be thick from the top to bottom. You won't see the tail or narrow bottoms of the weft instead the weft will be thick throughout its length. 

What is the hairs' natural state?

If we talk about the natural state of the hair, every donor has Single-drawn Drawn Hair, and none of the donors have double-drawn hair naturally. When you ask for double-drawn hair, it comes from two different donors. 

Double Drawn means out of 100%, 90% of the Hair is thick and of equal lengths if not 100% which is not possible naturally because the Hair which grows from the sides (behind temples) of the head is not of equal lengths to the Hair which grows from the middle of the head. 

Double Drawn Is Remy Hair

Double-drawn hair is from multiple donors, which makes it Remy Hair. Your vendor usually takes a ponytail from 2 different donors and makes a 100-gram weft. 

For instance, let's say you need 20 inches double drawn hair so your vendor would take a pony-tail of 20 or 21 inches remove all the short Hair from that pony-tail (if any) and if the weight of that pony-tail is let's say 50-55 grams after removing the shorter hair then your vendor would take another pony-tail for remaining 45-50 grams Hair of the same size and remove the short hair (if any) and make 1 bundle out of it. 


How to get Double Drawn Hair from Single Donor? Now you can get double-drawn hair in virgin hair. What you need to do is order single-drawn Raw Hair in higher lengths. For instance, if your order is for Double Drawn Hair weft of 20 inches then place the order for 24 or 25 inches and cut it by 4-5 inches and make a 20 Inches Double Drawn Weft. 

Using this method you will get the double-drawn hair from a single donor however the pricing will be higher.  

We don't advise for you to go with this method because Double Drawn Hair isn't natural and Double Drawn Hair in Raw Hair makes it expensive for the end-user. A survey suggests that for people who want double-drawn hair, their main focus is a reasonable price and thick ends, in other words, they are OK if the Hair is multi-donor hair.

99% of the time, if your salon is providing Double Drawn Hair then you are getting Remy Hair, not Virgin (one-donor) hair because the price of Double Drawn Hair has sky-rocketed.

In conclusion, double-drawn hair is not the same quality as virgin (one-donor) hair or raw virgin hair. It may not last as long as you would like it to.
