The Difference between Virgin Remy Hair and Other Extensions

The term virgin hair or virgin remy hair may be heard a lot but some may not know what virgin remy hair actually is or why it is more expensive. Virgin remy hair is hair that is donated and never chemically processed. The donors are typically of Indian, Brazilian, and/or Malaysian descent which is how you get the different genres of hair. Each region that the donor lives in and their ethnic background, strongly affects the texture, shade and thickness of the hair.

Remy hair is gathered from its donors in a way that the hair follicle (cuticle) remains intact and that all of the cuticles are perfectly lined up with the surrounding/neighboring hairs.

Non-remy hair is typically left over donor hair that may be gathered from floors of salons and so forth. Remy hair may not always be virgin hair, so if virgin remy hair is being sought, ensure that there are certifications stating what kind of hair is about to be purchased.
