Hair Extensions

Gold Fever

Gold Fever uses only the finest ethically sourced Indian hair available on the market and has exclusive access to many sources that supply this precious raw material. Gold fever hair strands are thick and luxurious, all the way down, and without the ‘stringy’ ends regularly encountered in today’s market place. “Stringy” ends in a strand that occurs when the individual hairs that make up that strand are noticeably different lengths.


The word “Taper” defines the difference between the shortest and the longest hair in an individual strand. The greater the taper, the less expensive is the raw material at source since large quantities of short hair would be present. Gold Fever removes these short hairs in order to permit fabulous and luxurious volume at the ends and with fewer strands having to be purchased to achieve this.

The Gold Fever Extensions are also double drawn hair refers to hair that has undergone a procedure to remove the short regrowth hair referred to above. The individual hairs in double drawn hair are substantial of the same length. It stands to reason that, since raw hair is sold by weight and length, double drawn hair is substantially more expensive and valuable than single drawn hair which, as mentioned, contains large quantities of short hair.

Gold fever hair extensions pride themselves on being eco-friendly and using organic hair treatments.  The world of chemicals has changed significantly towards eco-friendly and organic products, and we were quick to recognize just how much more effective and gentle they were on the hair. This also happily resonated with our passion for respecting our environment.
