Do you truly know what REMY hair really means?
The term “remy” is often translated into a different meaning than what it really stands for. It is often used in marketing and selling purposes that generally misleads the client into thinking they are getting the best grade of hair.
The 3 grades of hair most popular are European, Indian, and Chinese. These are the grades of hair. REMY just means the direction of the cuticle of the hair. Let’s look closer.
Remy is hair collected and sorted from various sources with the root and tip traveling in the same direction to ensure the cuticle does not tangle or matte.
The cuticles are not stripped and remain aligned in one direction.
I like to think of it as shingles on a roof, they all have to go the same direction.
Remy hair is more expensive and looks more natural due to the tedious process that the hair goes through to not damage the cuticle. Usually virgin hair or hair that has been minimally processed to protect the integrity of the hair has cuticle in tact.
REMY hair is a smoother, shinier, and healthier appearance than NON-REMY. This hair feels amazing even after multiple times being washed. Most of our clients can get a year or two of wear with REMY hair still looking great. The investment is great but well worth it.
Do you wonder why non-remy hair is less expensive then remy hair?
Non-remy is hair that does not have it’s roots aligned (Roots and tips not traveling in the same direction).
Since the cuticle runs in both directions it requires a higher concentration of acid. Eventually resulting in hair with very low moisture, leading to dry straw-like hair.
With NON-REMY the hair cuticles are stripped usually from over processing and the hair is thrown together which causes tangling. To mask this some manufactures use heavy silicone to make the hair appear shiny and healthy, but beware as soon as you wash it the silicone comes off and the hair mattes into a huge mess. Some shops will go so far as to guarantee the hair UNTIL you wash it.
Remember, yes the investment is much lower however you will struggle with this hair after you wash it the first time. The hair will matte and look dull once the coating has worn off.
So what side are you on? REMY or NON-REMY
1.The most natural-looking hair extensions
It is extremely difficult to distinguish a Remy hair extension from natural hair. The aligned and intact hair cuticles reflect the natural light, giving it the same lustrous sheen as a healthy head of hair. In comparison, other types of natural human hair wigs will look slightly dull and lifeless.
2.They have an unbeatable lifespan
Thanks to their unique construction, Remy hair extensions are much more durable and long-lasting than synthetic hairpieces or other types of human hair systems. The intact cuticles mean you don’t have to worry as much about direct sunlight exposure or frequent hair washing.
Remy's hair extensions can last up to 12 months when cared for. To put it into perspective, that is about four times more than a non-Remy hair extension. However, like all hair replacement systems, Remy's hair will eventually lose its sheen, become brittle, and need replacing.
They have an unbeatable lifespan
Remy hair extensions are made from and fabricated like natural human hair, making them behave like such. Unlike other types of hair systems, they do not require any additional maintenance and can be incorporated into your usual hair care regime. You can even swim in Remy hair extensions if you wish, though avoiding sleeping in them while wet is best. Extend their lifespan by brushing them regularly, washing them with high-quality products, and wearing them up at night. If you want to give your hair some additional TLC, the Remy Soft BlueMAX Moisture Lab 3 Step System - consisting of shampoo, conditioner, and a protective sealer - is a great option, providing the perfect balance of softening and protection properties. Remember, Remy hair extensions are designed to give you the confidence to live life to the fullest, not to hinder your available time!
4.They are heat and dye-friendly
We meant what we said about treating Remy's hair like your own. If you decide to change your hair color, later on, you can easily dye your Remy human hair extensions to match. They are also super easy to style as they can be blow-dried, straightened, and curled using heat-styling tools and retain their shape for longer.
5.They are tangle-free
Thanks to its intact and aligned cuticles, Remy's hair retains its silky soft texture and is immune to matting and tangling. This is what makes them the most easily managed and long-living hair extension type. That said, they are not exempt from hair brushing or your usual hair care routine!
