But, Most people get 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. However, you must choose the best hair right for you. In this article, we will clearly explain the differences between two types and help you choose. Enjoy reading!

Virgin Hair

Virgin hair is a phrase used to describe a set of hair that has not been chemically altered in any way. This includes dyes, perms, bleaching, and other popular processes. Because virgin hair is void of these processes, the cuticles are intact. This translates to smooth, tangle free hair. However, this also means that more work is required in order to maintain the look and feel of the hair. Additionally, the color that appears in the hair extensions is natural, which is why you see only this color available when virgin hair extensions are offered.


Remy Hair

Remy hair is probably the most misunderstood and overused phrase in the hair industry. Remy hair is achieved when the cuticles are still intact and not stripped, and most importantly it’s bundled so that the cuticle lays in the same direction from the time the hair is cut while the hair is held in a ponytail. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates hair extensions that are completely natural in appearance. Any other product does not fit the bill.


Non-Remy Hair

Another kind of hair extension, which is called Non-Remy hair, has undergone the chemical process as well and the mixture of hair tips and ends. While producing on-Remy hair, it needs to be clipped to make less friction between hair strands and then it will look tangle free, smooth with more natural waves. It is less expensive but not as good quality as Virgin and Remy hair.

The Major Difference Between Virgin Hair and Remy Hair

1.The Remy hair donor may or may not have processed it before it was cut, whereas, virgin hair has never been processed.

2.For Remy hair, the manufacturer hair seller may have dyed, bleached and treated it to give it the desired look and texture before packaging it for sale. Whereas, virgin hair has not undergone any such alteration.

We hope this blog can help you navigate easily when choosing the best hair extensions right for you.
