Can Virgin hair be Remy or non-Remy?
Can virgin hair be Remy or non-Remy? Before answering the question, let's learn exactly what raw/virgin hair is.
Raw/virgin hair is untouched hair with absolutely no chemical or steam processes used to achieve a certain color or texture. The textures of raw/virgin hair will be naturally occurring and you may, in fact, find a strand of grey hair in these extensions.
Can raw/virgin hair be Remy or non-Remy? Yes and no. Remy human hair points in a uni-lateral cuticle direction, which means that the hair follicles all flow in a single direction. Remy human hair is collected in a way to allow the hair strands to stay aligned in the natural direction it grew in and to maintain the natural texture pattern and cuticle direction. A ponytail haircut is an example of this. Thus, Remy human hair greatly reduces tangling problems commonly found in non-Remy virgin hair.
Non-Remy hair? Non-Remy hair is hair collected from hairbrushes or off the floor of hair salons. While the hair from a cut ponytail is Remy, the stray hair that falls onto the floor of salons from a haircut is no longer Remy because the cuticles will no longer all point in the same direction. This non-Remy hair is commonly collected and then sold quite cheaply to manufacturers. Due to the cost difference between Remy and non-Remy hair, the majority of human hair sold today is non-Remy hair.
In order for non-Remy hair, to mimic true Remy hair, these extensions will go through chemical and steam processes to achieve the particular texture and color. This "acid bath" strips the entire cuticle off the hair shaft. The hair is then dipped in a vat of silicone to achieve the feel and look of Remy hair. The problem is once you try and wash these non-Remy hair extensions. The and the silicone washes off and the hair
So back to the question of whether virgin hair can be Remy or not? Here below are two examples explaining:
- Remy and Virgin hair: The donor has her cut from a ponytail but has never dyed or bleached her hair, the hair would be Virgin and Remy.
- Remy Non-Virgin hair: The donor has her hair cut from a ponytail, producing Remy hair but if the donor dyed or bleached her hair, it would not be virgin but still Remy.
