Many people, even sellers misuse the word and confuse Remy hair with Virgin hair, or think that Remy and Virgin hair means the same thing. Remy Hair does not always imply Virgin hair, in fact, it rarely means that. Although the two terms are used synonymously, they are entirely different in meanings.

Virgin hair

Virgin hair has never-ever been processed in any way. No color, no chemicals, no nothing. Completely natural and all cuticles are facing in the same directions. Remy hair only means that all cuticles are intact and facing in the same direction. 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. Please read our first blog explaining what Virgin Hair is.

Remy hair

Remy(Remi) Hair is considered to be the high quality of human hair. And it actually describes the quality of hair used to make up the particular extension.  Also, the hair cuticles are intact, in one direction and consist 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.

Remy hair extensions are beautiful and more natural, so they look like the individual’s own hair. It will cost more to invest in Remy extensions, the results achieved are far more stunning and long-lasting than by using synthetic or lower grade hair. And it can be styled using flat irons or curling irons, just like your own hair.

So you can buy virgin hair, Remy hair or virgin Remy hair for the ultimate deal on never-treated hair bundles with the cuticle intact and all strands facing the same direction.
