We get a lot of questions asking us what the difference is between Virgin hair and remy hair justifying the major price difference.
There are a few differences that separate them from each other so here we explain it in layman’s terms
Remy Hair is recognised as a standout hair option in today’s market. The term “remy’ is used to describe hair that has the cuticles intact and aligned unidirectional from root to tip. With the cuticles unstripped it gives the hair a healthy shine to the hair. The hair is made with 100% human hair that its cut or shaved from a donors scalp. Remy Hair is usually a combination of multiple donors.
The term “Virgin hair “ relates to hair that has never been chemically processed or coloured. By chemically processed, we mean hair that is free from perms, relaxers, colour and dyes. It is also unlikely to have been exposed to various heat styling methods. This means there will be no damage to the strands which in turn increases the longevity of the hair as long as it is cared for.
Virgin hair is the highest raw materiel that you can get and is becoming more and more sought after. With this type of hair it is healthy natural hair that is well looked after before being cut or shaved from a donors head. Virgin Hair is collected from a single donors head.
So is Blonde Hair Virgin?
When talking about blonde hair, we acknowledge it as ‘From Virgin’ meaning that we have taken the highest quality virgin hair and coloured it for the very first time. This allows the hair to be coloured to a platinum White safely retaining its virgin like quality.
Generally the lightest virgin hair will be used to achieve this colour.
