Human hair extensions are a popular means to transform one’s personality overnight. Simply because the texture may blend well with one’s own hair, or one can add more volume and length to a naturally thin hair. It is a quick solution to blend perfectly on separate occasions as the situation demands.

But, it is equally important to know that not all hair extensions are human hair. Some online hair extension companies sell human hairs mixed with animal fur or synthetic hair. This saves overhead costs and this result in hair extensions being sold at cheap prices. On the other hand, high-quality human hairs are expensive as they last longer with proper care and attention. Always be sure to buy quality human hair extension from a reputed online company like BORUIHAIR. We source their high-quality hair-extensions ethically from hair donors.

◆ 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.

◆ Remy Hair does not always mean virgin hair, in fact, it rarely means that.Although the two terms are used synonymously, they are completely different in meanings.

◆ Non-Remy hair is very popular and is readily available as well.This hair has both the roots and the tips mixed up so that all the hairs are not running in the same direction.This type of hair undergoes the shaving off of the cuticles or sometimes the ends of the hair.

◆ Virgin hair and Remy hair both are 100% natural human hair.The difference is that the donor of Remy hair used to dye, perm or bleach his or her hair while the donor of virgin hair doesn't use any chemical products.And Remy hair needs to be rearranged but virgin hair always comes as it is.

Virgin hair is more precious and expensive, and it's the best product among all the hair extensions.But both of the virgin and Remy hairs are smooth, healthy with perfect shape and quality.

This type of hair is usually collected from hair brushes and hair that has fallen on the floor. It is in greater supply and is therefore much cheaper than Remy Hair. The majority of human hair sold today is non-Remy hair. Because of the method of collection, the cuticle for each hair strand tends to be in all different directions. In order to compensate for this, the hair will go through a process sometimes referred to as an “acid bath”, to completely remove the entire cuticle. This can be equivalent to about ten relaxers in a row.

After the cuticle removal process, the hair is dipped in silicone to make it shine and to cover up any cuticles that were not removed in the acid bath. The silicone adds weight to the hair and ups the selling price as hair is sold by weight. At first glance the non-Remy hair will appear silky and shiny. After a few shampoos the silicone layer will start to wash off. The hair will slowly become duller, brittle and will tangle and matte very easily. This type of hair is not recommended for any long-term hair extensions (i.e. Sew-Ins) for the obvious reasons. Typically non-Remy hair is used in human hair wigs too. (
