Are Remy Hair Extensions good
Remy Hair Extensions is probably the most misunderstood and overused phrase in the hair industry.
Some common MYTHS about Remy human hair are:
- Remy hair is only Indian hair.
- Remy hair is an ultra rare blend of fine/thin hair.
- Remy hair costs thousands of dollars.
- Remy hair is only available from fine salons.
What is Remy Human Hair?
Long ago, the definition of Remy hair was used to describe human hair that was the highest grade of virgin hair with an intact cuticle. Remy hair was also required to be mono-directional. Maintaining hair direction is very difficult, since a majority of the raw material (recently cut human hair) is gathered at temples and not from a controlled environment like a lab or hair salon.
Therefore, the original distinction of Remy hair was established to represent hair extensions that were:
- Controlled to ensure against different lengths.
- Strong and healthy virgin hair that is free of chemical processing.
- Carefully collected hair to ensure all strands maintain Mono-directional form.
- An intact cuticle to protect the hair shaft.
Over time some consumers actually began to prefer non-cuticle hair extensions. So the term Remy or Remi Hair Extensions (as used in European countries) lost some of its meaning, since cuticle hair was not necessarily a requirement of fine, much desired hair extensions.
Also, many women in Europe and in the United States began to purchase hair extensions that required hair colors of lighter brown and blond. Unfortunately, most of the world marketplaces of human hair do not include these shades.
To achieve the necessary colors that many women wanted to purchase, the raw material had to be dyed. Because of the introduction of more blondes and brunettes to the market, the virgin designation was altered to mean that the raw material must begin as virgin human hair before it is dyed by the manufacturer.
Pro Extension's definition of Remy hair:
In our opinion, Remy human hair consists of hair extensions made from virgin human hair of the highest quality grade. There may be some chemical treatments involved after the raw material is acquired (hair dye or cuticle removal). Also, all hair strands must follow the same direction and be of the same length to ensure a high quality set free of tangling.
The Remy Saga
As the original definition of Remy began to fade, many sellers began using the term generically. Sadly we have found many sellers calling low grade human hair, that has had numerous chemical treatments, Remy hair. Most of the Remy hair we have found has actually been of a lesser quality than our own standard set of hair extensions.
Which Remy Set is Best For You?
We offer both non-cuticle Remy hair extensions (Pro Premier) and intact-cuticle Remy hair extensions (Pro Cute). Both Remy hair extensions are of the same quality grade, but our pro premier has had its cuticle removed while Pro Cute maintains the original intact cuticle.
Pro Premier Remy Hair Extensions
Pro Premier is easy to care for since it has had the cuticle removed. The set is also tangle free. Pro Premier Remy hair extensions offer, what we believe to be, the highest grade of human hair available at the world’s best prices.
