Human hair extensions come in two types: Remy hair and Non-remy hair, which are different in terms of texture, luster and strength.
This comes from different sources like parlor floors, barber shops or salons. Since there is a high demand for human hair, even fallen hair is picked up and sold. The direction of the cuticles for Non-remy hair is not the same. If this is the case, it is very prone to tangles.
To eliminate these tangles, they remove the cuticles through an acid bath process. However, acid bath processes are extremely damaging since it melts the cuticles of the hair, making it more prone to breakage and dryness. The hair also have lessened its natural shine.
Non-remy hair is satisfying at first sight. But after only 3-4 washes, the dry and matted texture of the hair comes out. It will have a rubbery texture, and gets drier with every wash. Non-remy hair is the source of numerous complaints for human hair extensions. In the long run, you will end up shortchanging yourself.
This hair is ethically bought from Indian Rapunzels and is then sterilized and processed very minimally to maintain its luster, shine and strength. Remy hair is also called “Cuticle Correct Hair” because the cuticles of this hair is intact and unidirectional. This ensures silky and tangle-free hair!
Remy hair has the best quality among the types of hair extensions. It is collected straight from the donor, so you can be sure that its cuticles only have a single direction. With intact cuticles, remy hair is stronger, softer, shinier, less prone to breakage and it will never tangle. In fact, it can last up to 10 years with proper care.
Being “the realest of real hair”, you can color, straighten, or curl it, permanently or with an iron. This type of hair is used by a number of celebrities and famous personalities.
Conclusion: Choose Remy hair!
