The Difference Between Remy Hair and Virgin Hair

When it comes to the type of hair, many people can't understand what is Remy Hair and what is Virgin Hair. But we need to know whatever Remy Hair or Virgin Hair, all is human hair. Please see the detail of Remy hair and Virgin hair by the following words.

1. What is Remy Hair?

“Remy” refers to the alignment of the hair cuticle or the outermost layer of the hair shaft. It is collected from the donor in a way that keeps the hair's cuticles aligned and going in the same direction. Although, Remy hair is not considered virgin hair, is still 100% real human hair but it has been processed after being harvested from the donor. Remy hair is collected in a method in which all hair strands stay aligned in the natural direction as it grew (i.e. holding the hair in a ponytail and cutting), top at top, and ends at ends, to maintain the natural texture pattern and cuticle direction. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and this eliminates tangling problems.

2.What is Virgin Hair?

Virgin Hair is 100% human hair extension. It's from one single donor so each bundle you buy should from the same donors (the donor could be Indian, Malaysian, Brazilian, etc). This has not been exposed to any kinds of harsh agents and the cuticles all still have to be intact and running in the same direction. To qualify as virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, and chemically processed in any way. So virgin hair is high quality human hair.
