Different brands of virgin hair will fit differently. Now, whichever brand you choose, you should know whether it is made of 100% Virgin Remy Hair.
- Remy hair describes hair that has been selected root end first from one single donor. The cuticles are kept intact and not stripped.
- Virgin hair has never processed. Virgin hair is free from any chemicals such as relaxer, perm, silicones, colors and dyes.
Virgin Remy is the purest hair. It is a combination of unprocessed hair with its cuticles intact.
You are not buying true Virgin Remy hair if you are purchasing hair with an exact color designation such as #2 or #1B. Virgin Remy hair comes in natural black and brown because it has not been chemically treated or colored. If the hair has been dyed and treated that color, the color labels are attached to packages of hair.
The color of virgin Indian Remy is that of the natural hair color of the donor. It is often a medium brown that is often lighter than the store bought designation #1B although it is true that this can be a range of natural black and browns. Besides, the color will not be uniform throughout the entire bundle. You will find some different natural highlights both lighter and darker than that of the primary color. And, throughout the package, you will find strands of grey hair.
2. Grade and Texture
Virgin Indian Remy hair has a coarser more yaki-like texture that blends and looks more similar to that of women of color. It is not extremely silky or straight. Conversely, non virgin hair will give you an overly silky and straight feeling since it is often treated with silicones and coated with a chemical straightener. You can feel this extra layer of coating when you run your fingers across non virgin hair.
3. How Hair Responds When Wet
Non virgin hair often gets heavy once it is wet. Virgin hair will regain its natural curl or wave pattern when wet. The dirt and product buildup will be removed when it is wet, therefore it will often be lighter or less weighty than it was when dry. Note: some other lines offer wet and wavy hair that is neither virgin nor remy.
Bottom line, Virgin Indian Remy hair is indeed a great investment. It can blend perfectly with most natural hair types because of its natural luster, shine and texture. Besides, it offers a versatility and quality that is unparalleled in any other form of hair. With proper care, Virgin Indian Remy hair can last month after month without matting or tangling.
