Shopping for the right wigs can be confusing. There have many brands, types, colors and textures. One of the most commonly question is “what’s the difference between Remy hair and Virgin hair?”
Virgin hair is collected from a single donor(maybe Chinese,Indian, Brazilian ) whose hair is completely natural and unprocessed ever. And the hair cuticles are running in the same direction, it can help to prevent tangling.
Remy hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and aligned in one direction, but it may have been lightly processed before. The picture is healthy hair with cuticles intact.
We can tell Virgin hair and Remy hair according to the following 3 differences:
1. Color When it comes to virgin hair, as it is 100% natural and has not been damaged by dyeing, perming or bleaching, it usually provide a natural sleek look without dullness, and the hair root may be darker than the hair tip. For the remy hair, the whole hair color are basically the same. However, this method just be useful for the uncolored hair.
2.Touch Generally speaking, when you touch the virgin hair from the root to the tip, just like the feeling of touching the fish from head to the tail, so it is much smoother than the remy hair. On the other hand, as the remy hair have been processed before, it will be softer than the virgin hair.
3.Thickness Apart from see the color and touch the hair, you also can see the hair’s thickness. For the virgin hair, the hair root will be much thicker than the hair tip. Anyway, virgin hair is the best quality of hair which is known to last for over a year with proper care, but it’s more expensive than the remy hair. Hope this article could help you.
