Remy is a term that is often used in the hair extension industry, and to those who are new to the world of hair extensions it is just one of many terms that can be confusing to understand.
Whether or not hair extensions are “remy” will have a huge affect on the quality and the longevity of the hair, which is why it is so important to understand the difference between remy and non remy products.
Here we shall look at what it means for hair extensions to be classed as “remy”, what to look out for, and why it is so important for the quality of the hair.
Remy(Remi) Hair is considered to be the best quality of human hair.Virgin remy hair wholesale actually describe the quality of hair used to make up the particular extension.This hair is of the highest quality and comes from a single donor, which ensures consistency in texture.Also, the hair cuticles are intact, in one direction and consists of cuts which are the same length.This provides a smooth texture and allows the hair to last longer and style more naturally.So although all Remy hair is Virgin hair, not all Virgin hair is Remy hair.
What does aligned cuticles mean?
For hair to be classed as remy, each strand of hair must be facing in the same direction that is would had it naturally grown from your scalp. Here we have an example of what remy vs non remy hair would look like up close.
As our hair grows naturally from our scalp, each of our cuticles will be facing in the same direction, as shown in the “remy” image. If hair is non remy, and the cuticles are facing in opposite directions, this will cause the hair to tangle, and the hair will become very difficult to keep smooth, especially when wet. Non remy hair will also not feel as soft as remy hair, due to friction from brushing the cuticle against its natural direction.
Virgin hair has never-ever been processed in any way.No color, no chemicals, no-nothing.Completely natural and all cuticles are facing in the same directions.Remy hair only means that all cuticles are intact and facing in the same direction.Virgin hair is chemically unprocessed human hair, which is collected from a single donor.The virgin hair is remy hair that has not been altered by dyes, perms, bleaches, or harsh washes.Please read our first blog explaining what Virgin Hair is.
