Raw Society Hair is a wholesale supplier of plant based hair extensions.
Plant based hair extensions are an ethical, eco and beautiful alternative for the conscious consumer.
Crystal and Cherry are passionate about our planet; living predominantly chemical free and partaking in conscious decision making during day to day life. As former UK hair extensions salon owners, it was recognised the hair industry has a lot to answer for, specifically the waste caused by synthetic hair extensions and the ethics involved in human hair extensions. There was also an increasing awareness of the chemical reactions to women and even childrens skin caused by plastic hair; a solution to this problem was sought after. Crystal and Cherry had a desire to create hair extensions which eliminate the harsh chemicals, waste and cause no damage to our health, land, water, or living beings..
After acquiring a by-product of a plant leather and noting the properties it appeared to have, attempts were made at sourcing these particular fibres and similar. Time was and continues to be invested in to experimentation and building relationships. 2 fibres in particular and the journey behind them were found and loved. They were environmentally beneficial, they made beautiful hair extensions and their natural appearance allowed for endless potential.
The plant based hair extensions are made from parts of the plant that are removed during harvest and would normally be treated as a waste product. By using it to create hair extensions it provides the farmers with extra income and saves land space.

The Banana Tree
Banana Plantations are large factories for photosynthesis which reduces greenhouse gases. The leaves of the banana tree are one of the largest on the planet (up to 9m in length and 2m wide) allowing for a large surface area and therefore, this high rate of photosynthesis. During photosynthesis Carbon is extracted from the atmosphere and oxygen exhaled; thus the entire surrounding area where the Banana is grown becomes a very healthy area to reside in with clean purified air.
They continuously sprout from the roots allowing a large coverage and fresh growth. Encouraging planting more banana trees is a natural way we can reduce the Global warming and compensate the Carbon Emissions. If we are more densely surrounded by Banana Trees it creates more beautiful greenery, purified air and the increase of a health food is produced.
Thank you for choosing the environment.
