What is Remy Hair?

Remy hair is sometimes referred to as cuticle hair, virgin hair and raw hair. Remy hair is the number one choice if you're buying clip-in hair extensions and you want them to have the most natural sliky smooth appearance. Unlike non-remy hair the cuticles are not stripped and remain aligned in one direction. A lot of real hair clip-in extensions go through a stripping process called an acid-bath. Once this process is finished a silicone coating is placed over the cuticles to make the hair appear healthy, smooth and shiny. In time through washing and wear the silicone wears off so then the cuticles returned to their damaged state thus causing the hair extensions to get tangled up and matted.
 
Remy orginates from many continents such as South America, Asia and Europe the most popual type of hair however is Indian hair. This is mainly due to the fact that the texture and colour can work together with most ethnicities.There are two different types of remy hair, virgin remy hair and non-virgin remy hair. Virgin remy hair has not been chemically treated, where as non-remy hair has had treatment to colour the hair extensions a different colour.

With non-remy hair when the hair has been donated it is put into piles with all the other donated hair and mixed together. The problem with this process is that the cuticles are no longer aligned in the correct direction so the hair becomes tangled and matted very easily.

Single-drawn remy hair is when the hair has been collected from one single donor, but that may be made up of different lengths of hair. Double-drawn remy hair is when the hair has come from one donar and is all of the same length. It takes a great deal of time to sort through the individual strands of hair to ensure the citicles are correct and hair is all of the same length so this is most expensive type of remy hair.
