. Out of the entire human hair category, remy hair gives the most natural appearance. It is the preferred choice for wigs and hairpieces because of its appealing qualities. It is also referred to as cuticle hair, virgin hair and raw hair.
. It is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-Remy hair extensions. The cuticles are not stripped and remain aligned in one direction. Most human hair sold in the hair extensions industry undergo a cuticle-stripping process called an acid-bath. Then, a silicone is placed over the cuticles to give the hair a faux shine and smooth appearance. This silicone wears off when the hair is washed, therefore, the cuticles are disturbed and return back to their unruly state, causing the hair to mat and tangle easily. Remy hair does not mat or tangle because all the cuticles are aligned and intact without the use of silicone. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.
The most popular type is Indian remy hair. Its texture and color can be easily matched to the majority of ethnic groups in the world. Remy hair also comes from South America, East Asia and Europe. The origin of the remy hair an individual purchases is not as important as the kind of care that was given to the hair when it was first collected from the donor.
When washed, it will not mat and tangle. Virgin remy hair has not been chemically processed; this hair is raw and natural in other terms. Non-virgin remy hair underwent some sort of chemical processing in order to achieve another color.
Double-drawn remy hair is hair that has been sorted after collecting from the donor to ensure all the cuticles are of the same length. It is the most expensive type of remy hair because it takes meticulous time to sort the cuticles.
Remy hair also gives a more natural appearance than regular human hair extensions.
