How we test our hair.

Using our very own horse hair analyzer we can test the strength and elasticity of the hair we sell. Using an airtight chamber we can also simulate environmental conditions such as humidity and altitude. We run each test at a different humidity to observe how the hair reacts and preforms. Our aim is to provide only the best horse hair.
