NO. The term “Remy” means the characteristics of the hair and the method of manufacture. Remy hair is gathered from different donors and may undergo processing which is the main difference between Remy and virgin hair. Remy hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped. If the cuticles are removed it will start to look less natural and may start tangling and shedding. Remy hair is more flexible than synthetic hair in that it can withstand heat meaning you can straighten it, flat iron it or even dye it.
