01/04/2023by Mila Mykh

Thankfully, hair extensions have gone a long way from the days of the synthetic extensions that took the fashion show in the 1960s! There are synthetic, natural, virgin, and Remy extensions, but not all are created equally. What is Remy hair? There has been lots of buzz about Remy hair extensions. What are they? Why they’re so expensive and all that’s not? However, you’re here, and we’ll try to explain it clearly.

What is Remy human hair?

“Remy” or “Remi” are human hair with cuticles still intact. So, if your hair extension is described as “Remy hair,” you can be assured that it is not synthetic. Because Remy hair has its cuticles still intact, the hair does not tangle, and the cuticles keep the hair moisturized to prevent it from getting dried up, thereby making it last longer.

The best hair extension available is one made of Remy’s hair. It remains the absolute best in the hair industry. And these top hair extensions are available at Beauty Locks Salon in great variety of lengths and color.

What is the difference between Remy and Non-Remy hair?

Remy human hair is collected from a single donor with its cuticle intact and aligned in one direction to prevent tangling. It is also smooth, soft, and has a longer lifespan. At the same time, Non-Remy hair originates from various sources and frequently contains “fallen” strands, which may have been ripped off during hairbrushes. Non-Remy hair is chemically treated and has artificial silicon applied which will wash off over time and cause tangling. Although some Non-Remy hair can be chemically treated to resemble natural human hair, it still don’t match Remy human hair.

Which is better, Remy or virgin hair?

Virgin hair is also 100% human hair that has never been processed, dyed, or permed, and for these reasons, they last even longer than Remy hair. Virgin hair is kept exactly as it is obtained and is usually harvested from younger donors. Remy human hair is gathered in one bundle into a ponytail and is being cut from top at top and ends at ends to maintain its natural pattern, texture, and cuticle direction rather than being chopped and allowed to fall anyway. Remy’s hair is harvested so that the hair extension remains super soft, silky, shiny, and tangle-free.

Whether a Remy hair extension is better than a virgin hair extension is solely based on your budget. Both Remy and virgin hair are great choices with Virgin hair more expensive.

Where does Remy human hair come from?
