To distinguish the differences between the natural hair and the non-virgin hair, the wig hair users need to have an overview of what is Virgin hair and Non virgin hair.

1. The Virgin hair

The virgin hair is evaluated to be the most perfect wig hair nowadays. This is the kind of hair that has not been processed by any types of chemical products or procedures. They are collected from the young women who has long beautiful hair. So they are 100% human natural hair. The hair texture has not been changed at all. It is not been through any kinds of processes such as: dye, perm, bleach or color,… The virgin has the best quality comparing with other types of hair. Therefore, they are quite expensive. The durability is longer comparing with othe types of hair products. They are collected from the donors that have a good quality of hair. The process of collecting requires the strict verification. The hair must be long, healthy and strong.

Almost of the high-class wig hair products are made from 100% human hair. Buying these wig hair products, we need to have a deep knowledge about how to take care of it and store it properly.


2. The Remy hair

Remy hair has the same texture as Virgin hair but has different characteristics. The outer cuticle shell of the hair shaft is arranged in one direction. This means, the hair cuticles on the scalp are all aligned and naturally grown in a certain direction. Putting in one direction helps the hair become more smoothy. Most wigs made with Remy hair show no tangle after shampooing and drying. How to care for and preserve hair wigs made of natural hair.

Because the hair is natural, the quality is high. Collected from healthy hair donors with intact cuticles. This eliminates the messy and messy hair that often occurs in Non-Remy hair. This will eliminate the messy situation that often ocurs with Non-Remy hair.

Please take a note: When buying real hair for extension, if you do not checked carefully you will be fooled. Some shops have used poor-quality hair (Non-Remy) for selling.

If you compare the Virgin hair with the Remy hair – which is not evaluated highly by its quality. The selection process of the Non-remy hair is not too strict, the manufacturers have collected a long dyeing hair and coloring hair too. The cuticles have been lost so the strand of hair is no longer supple and have not the good elasticity. In general, "Remy" natural hair retains its softness, often used in high-class services such as hair extensions, highlight and producing the full wig hair. The Remy hair can last with an average up to 6 months to 2 years depending on usage. They also require intensive and frequent care.

3. The Non-remy hair

Non-Remy hair is usually obtained from many different sources such as orphanages, hospitals, and many other places. With this collection method, the material of hair fibers is not guaranteed because this is a synthetic blend of many hair types (healthy, weak, bad, tangled hair ...). On the other hand, the direction of the outer cuticle arrangement of each hair type is different, so the hair quality after finishing is very mixed. Non-Remy hair when using may appear inevitable problems are flat, tangled, dry and broken hair loss.

To overcome this problem, the manufacturer soaked the hair with a specialized compound to remove the cuticles outside the hair. Next, they cover the hair with a large amount of silicone to fill the holes, making the hair soft and strong. The first time when using them brings a sense of comfort, but only a short time. A few months later, the silicone will slough off and cause the hair to age and smell a little uncomfortable. At this time, the hair is easy to comb, tangle together, difficult to comb, style. These are really cheap hairstyles that are widely sold online but still claim to be Virgin or Remy hair. What is the reason for this problem? Because the cuticles layers have been completely stripped off, instead of silicone layers are covered on the surface. 

At this time, the hair structure is not what it used to be, they cannot absorb the nutrients contained in restorative and care products. Time by time, the hair quality will degrade.

In addition, Non-Remy hair (which is the very cheap hair) has little effects on coloring, poor heat resistance in a long time when using professional hairdressing equipment to style. Abuse can cause dryness and breakage. The average lifespan of this type of hair usually ranges from 3 months to 6 months if we do not often use the hairdressing equipment.
