But, what do you really know about Virgin Remy and Remy hair.
What is Virgin Remy?
The virgin hair is unprocessed 100% human hair, there is absolutely no artificial or non-human hair mixed in with it. Virgin hair has not been chemically treated or colored in any way. It naturally comes in a jet black to a dark brown hue. Cuticles are intact and are in the same direction, preventing tangling and matting. In comparison to processed hair Virgin hair will have a more natural look, movement, and body.
What is Remy hair?
Remy hair is virgin hair that has been chemically treated to give it the desired look and feel (i.e. body wavy, Italian wave, Spanish wave). Although the hair has been treated the cuticle is not stripped. Regular human hair extensions undergo a cuticle-stripping process called acid-bath. Then, silicone is placed over the cuticles to give the hair a faux shine and smooth appearance. This silicone wears off when the hair is washed, and the hairs return back to their unruly state, causing the hair to mat and tangle easily. Remy hair does not mat or tangle because all the cuticles are aligned and intact without the use of silicone.
Both Virgin and Remy hair can last you a long time depending on how well you maintain it and when maintained correctly, can be used for multiple installs.
Where does Remy hair come from?
Donating hair to god is an ancient practice which has been going on for centuries. Many people believe hair is what defines their physical appearance. Long or short, straight or wavy, it is an expression of your individuality. Hairstyles along with clothing we wear reflect our style.
In India, cutting off or sacrificing your hair is considered as letting go of your ego in front of God. No one is greater than God, and by sacrificing your hair in the name of God, you are letting go of your ego and your everyday life routine and devoting time for God. People in India usually donate hair because they are grateful for a blessing or asking for a blessing.
Remy hair also comes from South America (Brazilian Remy), East Asia (Malaysian Remy), and Europe (European Remy). The origin of the Remy hair is not as important as the kind of care that was given to the hair when it is first collected from the donor.
