Nowadays, more and more suppliers or wholesalers of human hair extensions are pouring into our life. Sometimes we don't realize which company can supply high-quality hair products.

Every supplier even claims their products are top on the internet, but only if you order human hair extensions products, will you know exactly quality of hair products, right?

How to distinguish the remy and the non-remy hair?And what is the difference between them?

Most people are confused about the two types of hair extensions — remy hair and virgin hair.Actually, they have many differences which affect the quality and value of the hair.Keep reading, this article may be helpful to you!

You need to understand that human hair is an umbrella term for all kinds of hair sourced from humans. When speaking of types, there are many ways to categorize human hair. 

Firstly, it is the texture that largely depends on the region the strands are sourced from. For instance, Indian hair, Peruvian hair, Malaysian hair, etc. All of these categories are associated with the origin and that is what impacts the natural look and texture. 

However, the origin is not the only thing that effects the quality. The method in which the hair is collected also impacts the overall look and quality of your extensions. So REMY is basically that method, and it is the most effective one to say the least.

Remy hair is usually collected from temples and places where people voluntarily donate their hair. Non-remy ones are likely to be collected from hair brushes and salon bins. So they aren’t necessarily in their best shape.

What you will learn form this article:



Chapter 1:What is Virgin Hair?


Firstly, we will see what virgin hair is.

Virgin remy hair refers to hair that is completely unprocessed, and intact.

◆ As for virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, and chemically processed in any way.

◆ This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction.

◆ Virgin hair can last up to a year with proper care and maintenance,and you have to care for your extensions just like your own natural hair.

◆ If you maintain your brazilian virgin hair extensions properly, you will have sleek, smooth, tangle free beautiful natural looking hair for a very long time and will be able the reuse the hair many times after.

Chapter 2:What is Remy Hair?


◆ The term “remy” refers to the characteristics of the hair and the method used to manufacture the hair extensions. 

◆ Remy has qualities such as uni-lateral cuticle direction, which basically means the hair follicles all go in one single direction.

◆ Remy hair is collected in a method in which all hair strands stay aligned in the natural direction as it grew to maintain the natural texture pattern and cuticle direction.

◆This eliminates tangling problems commonly found in non-Remy or low quality hair.

◆Because of the method of collection, this type of hair is in short supply and is therefore quite expensive.

Chapter 3:What is Non Remy Hair?


Do you wonder why non-remy hair is so much more inexpensive then remy 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.

◆ This type of hair undergoes the shaving off of the cuticles or sometimes the ends of the hair. This reduces the possibility of friction between hair strands and as such allows the hair to remain tangle free as the name suggests.

◆ These hairs are all of the same length and are probably the best quality type of non-remy human hair you can find but it is not the best hair extension you can find. Non-remy hair has undergone chemical processing.

◆ Non-remy hair is the left over hair that in most cases is gathered from the floors of temples. The hair cuticles are facing various directions, which causes the hair to tangle and matte quite easily. Because sellers know this, they often dip the hair in a silicone coating to try to disguise the hair. 

◆ 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.

Chapter 4:What is The Difference among Them?


Maybe experts in human hair can tell the difference between Remy and Non-Remy hair by touching it. Non experts probably will not be able to tell the difference by looking at it. Trust me, after 2 to 3 weeks when that hair starts to matte up they will know it’s not Remy.

So,What is the difference among them? 

1. 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.

2.The method they collect isn’t same. 

Remy hair is in short supply and is therefore quite expensive.

3. Remy's hair would last longer,because it has the best high quality.

So it is expensive! And it will last a long time if properly maintained.

4.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.

5. Remy human hair extensions are the most popular human hair 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.

6. 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.  

7. Hair color.Cause remy hair is too soft ,so normally will advise customers to dye dark color hair.

light color like number 27,613 color is not allowed ,it is easy to damage hair ,then shedding and tangling problem will come.

Diferrence between Remy and Non Remy Hair

So basically, if “100% Human Hair” is the Benz of the industry, then “Remy Hair” is the Phantom…And “Virgin Indian Remy” is the Bugatti. 



♥ The majority of human hair sold today is non-Remy hair.the cuticle for each hair strand tends to be in all different directions.

♥ 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.
