What is Virgin hair?
Virgin hair is chemically unprocessed human hair, which is collected from a single donor. The virgin hair is Remy hair that has not been altered by dyes, perms, bleaches or harsh washes.
Virgin hair and Remy hair are both 100% natural human hair. The difference is that the donor of Remy hair used to dye, perm or bleach his or her hair while the donor of virgin hair does not use any chemical products. And Remy hair needs to be rearranged but virgin hair always comes as it is.
Virgin hair is more precious and expensive, and it’s the best product among all the hair extensions. But both of the virgin and Remy hairs are smooth, healthy with perfect shape and quality.
What are Remy Hair Extensions?
The term Remy refers to the characteristics of the hair and the method used to manufacture the hair extensions. Remy human hair extensions are by far the most popular types of human hair extension on the market due to their exceptional quality and affordable price for the value.
Remy human hair is the highest grade of real, human hair that is a preferred choice for hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs because it achieves the most natural look.
When describing hair extensions, the term Remy refers to the general characteristics of hair, as well as the specific method used to make and collect hair extensions. With 100% Remy hair extensions, all the strands of hair follow the same direction and there will probably be no tangles or mats.
One of the main qualities that sets Remy hair apart is its unilateral cuticle direction, which basically means the hair follicles all go in one direction from root to tip. Remy hair is collected through a method in which the hair strands are aligned in the natural direction as it grew, ensuring a natural feel and soft texture that is comparable to one’s natural hair.

What are no Remy Hair Extensions?
100% Human hair is usually collected from hair brushes and hair that has fallen on the floor. It is in greater supply and is therefore much cheaper than Remy Hair. The majority of human hair sold today is non-Remy hair.
Because of the method of collection, the cuticle for each hair strand tends to be in all different directions.
In order to compensate for this, the hair will go through a process sometimes referred to as an”acid bath”, to completely remove the entire cuticle. This can be equivalent to about ten relaxers in a row.
After the cuticle removal process, the hair is dipped in silicone to make it shine and to cover up any cuticles that were not removed in the acid bath.
The silicone adds weight to the hair and ups the selling price as hair is sold by weight. At first glance, the non-Remy hair will appear silky and shiny.
After a few shampoos, the silicone layer will start to wash off. The hair will slowly become duller, brittle and will tangle and matte very easily. This type of hair is not recommended for any long-term hair extensions for the obvious reasons.
What is the difference between Remy Hair Extensions and No Remy?
Remy hair extensions made from human hair can be dyed a darker colour, styled with hot tools (curled or straightened), washed frequently, and treated just like you would your own natural hair.
On the other hand, hair extensions no remy are difficult to style and blend with your own hair, and typically don’t have the same lifespan as human remy hair extensions do. Remy hair extensions can last up to a year or longer if they are properly cared for.
