What is "remy" hair and why is it better than "non-remy" hair?
All of the hair extensions we offer are authentic remy quality. The term “Remy” means that the direction of the hair is preserved, cuticles are kept intact and each hair strand is kept in one direction. Intact cuticles lock in moisture and act as natural protection against damage to the hair strands. This means the hair maintains its shine and lustre with no matting or tangling. Most of the human hair sold over the counter in your local beauty supply store is NON-Remy hair. This means the hair is far lesser quality – it is collected from scraps (usually hair brushes) then compiled together for mass production with cuticles facing every which way. The cuticles of the hair are stripped off through a very damaging acid bath and then the hair is coated in silicone to give it a temporary silky shiny appearance. Over time, the silicone wears off and the hair starts to mat and tangle uncontrollably.
