Remy Hair - What Is It?

Simply put a Remy hair extension is the higher quality product. With a Remy hair extension, the cuticle is still intact and it has been collected making sure the cuticle is all aligned in the same direction. This product has a smoother appearance and feel due to the intact cuticle. It also means that the hair is all aligned and going in one direction. As a result, the tape in hair extension experience will be a better one, since the hair will not tangle or matte easily. No matter what type of hair you use - Malaysian, Peruvian, or Indian - you are better off with Remy hair.

An Overview Of Non-Remy Hair

Non-Remy hair is more readily available at market because it is of a lower quality.  Non-Remy hair is generally collected from different sources and/or donors and then piled together to make one hair weft. Consequently, the cuticles are not intact and the hair goes in different directions. Manufacturers attempt to remedy this by simulating the cuticle with a silicon coating which generally washes off after a few weeks. This hair product tangles easily and becomes matted.
