When I first entered into Hair Wigs industry, I always felt confused about the difference between virgin hair, remy hair extensions and 100% human hair. With the further familiarizing and understanding hair products, I come to the point of knowing the truth about these rough and misleading terms. Now let me try to make some definitions, or just some explanations about them.
What is Remy Hair
Remy hair are the Weave Hair that have been realigned from root to tip, and put all cuticles in one direction. Literally they are the hair products which have been processed and handled a little bit, and that’s the major difference from virgin hair. The original Remy Hair Extensions can be very high quality because of keeping whole hair cuticles intact, which the hair are cut from one donor.
What is Virgin Hair
Virgin hair is more rigorous standard than other hair types. It’s totally 100% unprocessed human original hair in any way, also chemical free. Has not been permed, not been colored, not been dyed and bot been bleached. All the hair pieces are cut and collected from a single donor, so all the cuticles are unidirectional direction and intact. Because the specialty, wearing this hair just as feel your own hair. With proper and regular hair care, the lifespan of virgin human hair can last for at least 6 months, even one year. By the way, virgin hair also can be named as 100 percent human hair.
The Truth of Remy Hair in Reality
The term Remy has been changed in many forms, and hair products on the market that been labeled as “Remy” are not telling the truth stories. Common hair extensions fans and heavy users are lack of the ability to identify the difference between high quality hair and regular hair, even hair professions and experts are also not that good, so probably that’s the reason of making the Remy hair have double identities, one is the original meaning and the other is real products in the market.
