No matter what your requirements are or what look you have in mind, Rapunzel will help you find the perfect solution for your hair type. To make sure we meet your every need, Rapunzel carries a broad range of different hair types for you to choose from.

Below is a description of Rapunzel's hair classifications and the differences between our hair extension products.

Rapunzel® Original is our best-selling hair extension product and suits most people. Its quality is like the Indian/Asian hair type – slightly thicker strands and often quite straight, though it may also have a slight natural wave. This hair is most often naturally dark and comes from China or neighbouring countries in Asia such as Vietnam. It has a slightly coarser structure and is given a stronger chemical treatment by our suppliers to ensure that it achieves the quality, colour, shade and style you want.
  • Genuine human hair
  • Suits all hair types and looks super natural!
  • Great value for money – genuine, premium quality hair at a nice price.
  • You can curl, straighten and style Rapunzel® Original hair any way you like

Differences between Rapunzel's genuine hair extension products

We want to provide you with the best possible information about our different hair classifications. To make sure we do so, Rapunzel conducts quality-control tests. First, our suppliers conduct tests during production. Rapunzel's Quality Controller also conducts regular inspections. We also employ the SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden (SP) and the Institute for Surface Chemistry (YKI) in Stockholm to carry out lab tests on our behalf. This allows us to monitor the quality of our products, provide clear information to our customers and continue product development.

Each hair extension product contains, on average, several thousand individual strands. No two hair is exactly a like. This is human hair, and has undergone different treatments, colourings and processing in order to become an accessory of the quality, colour and style you want. We always strive to provide high quality products.

(*) Based on how long our customers ordinarily use their hair extension products. By following our care instruction and using our products, you can extend the life of your hair product. We cannot provide any guarantees as to the lifespan of your hair product. Instead, we provide you with good information and the right tools to help you take the best possible care of your hairpiece. This applies only to the hair's classification and not to how long the method of attachment will last.
