◆ Non-remy hair is collected from the floor of temples, salons and random suppliers. With this type of collection method, cuticle directions become mixed, causing inevitable shedding, tangling and matting problems.

◆ To cover up the problems that will arise with non-remy hair, 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.The hair initially feel silky and soft, however, after few washes the silicone coating wears off and the hair feels very brittle and starts matting and tangling.

◆ Problems will arise with non-remy hair after a few washes and will not last beyond a few washes and cannot be reused. Also, since the cuticles are stripped and not intact, the hair extensions are unable to tolerate color treatment or heat.


Diferrence between Remy and Non Remy Hair

Chapter 4:Conclusion


Remy hair is generally more expensive. It is hair that is shaved off the donors head and bundled in such a manner that all the hair is kept in one direction. By doing so, the cuticles of the hair do not get roughed up as much and stay smooth.

Remy hair is not necessarily virgin hair, since it may be colored or permed. Its defining features are an intact cuticle and the manner in which it was harvested.

Non-remy has poor quality than remy hair bundles. Non-remy hair is the left over hair that in most cases is gathered from the floors of temples and salons then recycled to make a weft.

The hair cuticles are facing various directions, which causes the hair to tangle and matte quite easily.

Remy human hair extensions are the most popular human hair extension on the market due to the quality and price. Remy hair is a high quality hair that lasts up to a year and blends very well with your own hair.

♥ Non-remy hair is very popular and is readily available as well. This hair has both the roots and the tips mixed up so that all the hairs are not running in the same direction. Non-remy hair has undergone chemical processing.
