What is Remy Hair? (Remi Hair)
One can say that human hair collected directly from a hair
donor is Remy hair. It is sometimes referred to as cuticle
hair, virgin Hair or cut Hair. The majority of human hair
sold in the industry is non-remy hair, which means that the
hair cuticles have been stripped by the process of
bleaching or acid-bath. Remy hair goes through
special processing during the de-pigmentation phase, one
that resembles treating cashmere. With this the
hair cuticles are still intact, therefore the hair is stronger,
shinier, more lively, and durable.
How is it Collected?
hair or remi hair is collected by appointment directly from the hair
donor. The hair is tied in one direction, harvested, and
the direction of the hair is preserved. Hair that is
collected at random, not keeping track of the natural
direction will tangle when it gets wet. With Remy hair the
cuticle is always going in one direction as on a natural
head of hair, so it is less likely to tangle. Since all
the hairs are placed in the same direction, the hairs
remain undisturbed, making them more durable and
long lasting. Remy hair lasts longer, keeps
vitality and elasticity, colors better (enhancing color
consistency over 95% to that of synthetic- fiber),
easier to comb and it curls better. This is what
makes remy hair so special.
is Virgin Hair?
We only use raw material that are in a "virgin hair"
status, which is hair that has not been chemically treated
at all. Perms, hair coloring, and dyes make human hair
unhealthy and less valuable to work with.
