What is the difference between Remy Hair and Virgin Hair ?

There are many doubts of hair users when they using the hair weave or hair wig, wheather the hair is remy hair or virgin hair, and some one also said that this hair is remy hair, at the same time is virgin hair, too. So how we can find the different of remy hair and virgin hair ?

Remy Hair does not always mean virgin hair, in fact it rarely means that. Although the two terms are used synonymously, they are completely different in meanings. 

virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, and chemically processed in any way. This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction. Virgin hair can last up to a year with proper care and maintenance. When it comes to virgin Indian hair, you have to care for your extensions just like your own natural hair. You need to brush your hair frequently. You need to shampoo and condition your hair regularly, especially if you use a lot of hair products. Deposits from the hair products, if not washed off on a regular basis, can degrade the quality of the hair (just like your own hair) and combined with the use of heat can affect the smooth natural feeling and behavior of the virgin hair. 

Remy Hair Extensions

Remy human hair extensions actually describe the quality of hair used to make up the particular extension. This hair is of the highest quality and comes from a single donor, which ensures consistency in texture. Also, the hair cuticles are intact, in one direction and consists of cuts which are the same length. This provides a smooth texture and allows the hair to last longer and style more naturally. So although all Remy hair is Virgin hair, not all Virgin hair is Remy hair.

Non-Remy Hair Extensions

Of course, this hair comparison would not be complete without mentioning the ever popular, non-Remy human hair. Non Remy human hair is a happy medium between high quality, Virgin Remy hair, and lower quality hair such as synthetic or Yaki. These type of hair extensions generally undergo a chemical treatment in order to produce a particular color or texture in the hair. This destroys the cuticle, which drastically shortens the life of the hair extension. The source of this hair is difference as well and consists of the “leftovers” found in salons, brushes and other places. This means hair will flow in different directions and eventually lead to tangling.

Virgin Remy hair last longer and is much less likely to tangle than non virgin Remy hair  In a nutshell, all virgin hair is Remy but not all Remy hair is virgin.
