What is virgin hair, remy hair and non-remy hair, what is the differences between them?
There are two main materials used to make hair wigs and hair extensions. They are human hair and synthetic hair, and real human hair includes virgin hair, remy hair and non-remy hair. Regardless of whether it is human hair or synthetic hair, the hair wigs or hair extensions made of them have a wide range of customers, and they have their own advantages and disadvantages. The article will focus on these three types of human hair, what they are and what is the differences between them.
Virgin hair is the hair cut directly from the provider. It is the best human hair, and the hair scales unprocessed. They are cutted and stored in an orderly manner along the natural growth direction of the hair. The hair roots are next to the hair roots, the hair ends are next to the hair ends. Under the microscope, it can be seen that the hair scales on the surface of the hair are facing the same direction, so virgin hair has a very smooth feel. Because of the characteristic of virgin hair, the hair extensions or hair wigs made of them are the best quality, smooth and not easy to tangles, and last longer than other types of hair. But because virgin hair is relatively scarce, it is expensive.
Remy hair is a more common type of human hair, and the hair scales are processed, the hair roots and hair ends are mixed upside down. But because the hair scales are processed and make the hair scales are all facing the same direction, even if hair roots and hair ends are mixed upside down, they still have a smooth touch and excellent texture. The quality of remy hair is second only to virgin hair. Hair extensions and hair wigs made of remy hair also have a very smooth touch. Compared with virgin hair, remy hair has a very high cost performance.
Non-remy hair is also a type of human hair, but its quality is not as good as virgin hair and remy hair. The roots and ends of non-remy hair are also mixed together, and the hair scales on the surface have been deeply processed. It can be said that most of the hair scales have been removed. Therefore, they also have a smooth touch. But it is precisely because the hair scales are removed, it is equivalent to no protective layer, so its quality and lifespan are not as good as virgin hair and remy hair. But it has an advantage that its price is the cheapest.
How much do they cost?
For a hair wig with standard hair density, a virgin hair wig costs at least $200, and the longer the hair length, the higher the cost, even more than $2000. Remy hair will be much cheaper, it is between tens to $300, and generally does not exceed $500. Non-remy hair is even cheaper, it is the cheapest among human hair, for hair wigs or bundles with closure of the same hair length, non-remy hair is more than ten to hundreds of dollars cheaper than remy hair.
Which type of human hair is the best?
Through the above introduction, we can roughly understand the difference between them. The virgin hair is the best human hair, but it is also the most expensive. The second is remy hair, which has the highest cost performance. Non-remy hair is the worst of these three types of human hair, but its price is the cheapest.
But nothing is absolute, we cannot said that virgin hair is good and non-remy hair is bad. Each factory has different technologies, processes and equipment, which may result in different product quality. Therefore, the quality of remy hair and non-remy hair produced by the two factories will also be different.
How to choose the right type of human hair?
In fact, remy hair has the highest cost performance, and it is recommended to buy hair wigs or hair extensions which are made of remy hair. From an economic point of view, if you don't wear it often, non-remy hair is recommended. If you need to wear it every day, then remy hair is a good choice. Of course, if you have ample budget, you can consider virgin hair. However, because virgin hair is relatively scarce, you should find a reputable seller to buy it.
