About Hair Extensions or so-called 100% Human Hair
What is REMY human hair?
REMY human hair includes the “cuticle” on the hair shaft. There is a thin outer layer (microscopic) on human hair. REMY leaves on this layer. It makes the hair feel even more natural and helps to prevent tangling.
The non-tangle attribute also increases the long wear of REMY human hair wigs*. Remy hair can be categorized in the “premium” segment, as far as hair quality is concerned. Remy hair has its cuticle intact and running in the same direction “unidirectional cuticle” to prevent tangling. The Cuticle protects the hair from damage and gives the hair its natural look.One can say that human hair collected directly from a hair donor is Remy hair. It is sometimes referred to as cuticle hair, virgin hair or cut hair.
The majority of human hair sold in the industry is non-Remy hair, which means that the hair cuticles have been stripped by the process of bleaching or acid-bath. Remy hair goes through special processing during the de-pigmentation phase, one that resembles treating cashmere. With this the hair cuticles are still intact, therefore the hair is stronger, shinier, more lively and durable. Remy hair colours better, enhancing colour consistency over 95% to that of synthetic-fibre; it's easier to comb and it curls better. This is what makes Remy hair so special.
What is Virgin Hair?
Virgin hair is not processed in any way - it is 100% natural, so there is no damage to the cuticles. The cuticles protect the hair so it is important that they are intact. Virgin hair does not have to be Remy if it has not been harvested in the right way or comes from combings. What is Remy cuticle hair? This is real Remy Cuticle hair, (same as Remy), although it is the highest grade human hair available. The hair is sectioned and allowed to fall into its natural growing pattern. The hair is then cut and carefully arranged in bulk or weft to maintain the natural cuticle direction so matting and tangling are virtually eliminated.
Non Remy Hair is perhaps the most popular and commonly available form of hair. The roots and tips of hairs are all mixed up in Non Remy Hair. Tangling is a problem as a result of this, but still, since they are inexpensive, they are the largest selling kind of hair in the world.
Non Remy hair extensions come in two types, they are as follows:
Tangle Free Non Remy Hair is obtained by shaving off the cuticles or the ends. This process reduces the chances of friction among hairs and what remains is tangle free hair.
Normal Non Remy Hair. This is probably the least expensive kind of hair. The cuticles are present in different directions and the hair is prone to tangling problems.
Further attributes are SINGLE DRAWN (Some hair in the piece will be 2” shorter than the original length) and DOUBLE DRAWN (all the hair will be of the same length. This is a good quality hair type).
QUALITY A: This type of hair consists of tangle free non remy hair with the cuticles shaved off or smoothed out. The entire weft consists of tangle free non Remy hairs of the same length, with no short hair. This is a premium quality weft.
QUALITY B: This is the next quality in wefts made up of non Remy hair. They are also tangle free and have their cuticles shaved off. They are made up of special double drawn hair, with a hair length of two-inch difference, with no short hair.
QUALITY C: This is the final quality of wefts, made up of tangle free non remy hair. The cuticles are again shaved off and the hair used is single drawn. This means the entire weft has hairs of different length.
Please note at Oscar's only use Quality A or B hair extensions. We offer value for money, whatever your choice!
*Remy Hair is not always virgin hair; once virgin hair has been coloured or chemically processed in any way short of removing the cuticles it is referred to as Remy if is still unidirectional.
