There are many doubts of Brazilian Hair users when they using the hair weave or hair wig, whether the hair is Remy hair or virgin hair, and someone also said that this hair is Remy hair, at the same time is virgin hair and Human Hair too. Actually, they have many differences which affect the quality and value of the hair. So how we can find the different of virgin hair and Remy hair ?
What Is Virgin Hair?
Virgin Hair weaves are 100% real human hair that has never been altered by a chemical process. Virgin hair is the highest quality human hair available on the market. This hair is expensive, yet it does last for a longer time than Remy hair, making it worth the investment. Virgin hair extensions mean that when the hair is collected, it is collected from virgin hair donors. This means that the hair has never been chemically processed (any perms, hair color etc), never chemically treated, and comes from hair donors with long healthy hair.
Virgin hair usually comes from younger women, so there are no grey hairs or split ends. When choosing virgin hair, hair donors must have long full healthy human hair. When collected, it is usually hand selected from thick, full, long ponytails. Since virgin hair collected from ponytails, of healthy non-processed hair, the hair is already healthy and it does not require any kind of additional chemical processing to make it look beautiful, shiny and soft.
What Is Remy Hair?
The term ‘Remy’ means the characteristics of the hair and the method of manufacture. Remy human hair is the most popular type of human hair due to the good quality and affordable pricing. Remy human hair is not virgin human hair. It is gathered from different donors and may undergo processing which is the main difference between Remy and virgin hair.
When Remy hair is collected, the cuticles are left intact and perfectly aligned from cuticle to root creating a more natural look. If the cuticles are removed it will start to look less natural and may start tangling and shedding. It is more flexible than synthetic hair in that it can withstand heat meaning you can straighten, flat iron or even dye it. Remy hair is most often used in high-quality wigs, lace front wigs, Closure Pieces, and hair extensions.
