Meaning of Indian, Brazilian and Russian Hair Extensions

You would like to think that if you purchase a product which is labelled "Russian", "Brazilian" or "Indian" Hair Extensions that you would be buying hair extensions which originate from Russia, Brazil or India. However the description "Russian Hair Extensions", "Brazilian Hair Extensions" or "Indian Hair Extensions" refers mainly to the texture of the hair rather than the origin of the hair.

This problem of false labelling occurs because the hair extensions industry is un-regulated and manufacturers are free to "Label" a product however they wish. This is not to say the the products which are falsely labelled are poor quality, in fact many of them are quite good. However the consumer, and most retail shop keepers are unqualified to identify the difference.
