So, you want to know more about Remy hair, or maybe you've been contemplating on getting one yourself but you're not sure if it's worth the investment. Remy hair is considered to be one of the finest quality hair and the most demanding. So what is all the fuss about? Here we’ll explain why there is so much hype around the hair and what this means for you as a consumer.


What is Remy Hair?

The term “Remy” refers to the method used to gather human hair strands. From the time of collecting to the process of cleaning, dying, and creating wigs and other hairpieces, cuticles of the hair is preserved and aligned from root to tip in the same  direction. The result from this time consuming process is a natural looking wearable with texture comparable to one’s hair.

What Does It All Mean?

Let’s be frank, Remy hair is not cheap to get. So what if "things" are intact and flowing the same direction, one would assume that any human hair will achieve the same effect. Well...this is true to an extent.

Non-Remy hair is usually treated with a silicone coating to make them super smooth. After some washes, this layer will eventually come off, leaving your hair feeling harsh and brittle. In contrast, Remy's unique technique gives their hair the lasting advantages of durability and natural feel of silky soft hair without the aid of any harsh chemicals.

There is also another advantage. When it comes to the tangled mess that can happen with wigs and hairpieces, Remy hair is much less likely to tangle and shed. What this means is that you get to keep your favorite hair much longer without going through the hassle to replace it.

But Be Careful…

Not all Remy hair is created equal. Remember that “Remy” only refers to how hair is gathered and processed, not the quality of the hair itself. So a Remy hair wig or hairpiece made with low-grade human hair is no better than a high-quality Non-Remy.
