…A New Destination For Hair

When it comes to selecting hair extensions for creating your styles, do you really know where the hair is coming from? The hair pros at Madali tell us that some brands claiming to sell Brazilian, Malaysian, Cambodian and other exotic-named styles actually source their hair from China. So, Madali set out to find the highest quality hair extensions in the world, travelling to many countries—including China, India and Malaysia. However, it wasn’t until a trip to the Philippines that they learned that Filipino hair better matches our texture than, for example, Indian hair.

Madali hair is sourced directly from women in the Philippines who are fairly compensated and treated with the highest level of respect. The hair is inspected, washed several times and maintained so that each strand is in the right direction, root to tip. The wefts are machine-sewn with precision and then inspected once again to ensure quality resulting in hair that does not shed or mat, even after multiple installs. Madali wefts, wigs, closures and frontals are created with us in mind, down to the brown lace used for their wigs, closures and frontals to achieve a perfect blend with skin tone. As a new destination for hair, Madali’s mission is to make buying hair extensions as easy as possible by offering their products online with a worry-free return policy.
