The cuticles of Remy hair are not striped, the hair is collected and sorted with the cuticles arranged in the same direction, to ensure that the hair does not tangle.
Remy hair is more expensive and looks more natural due to the tedious process that the hair goes through to not damage the cuticle. Usually virgin hair or hair that has been minimally processed to protect the integrity of the hair has cuticle intact.
Remy hair is a smoother, shinier, and has a healthier appearance than NON-Remy. This hair feels amazing even after multiple washings. This is a high value investment because, this hair will still looks great after to two years of use.
Hair extension grading system starts at Grade A. Best choice of hair extension are high quality Grades 6A, 7A, 8A. This grades have a natural thickness that can be coloured and safely heated. They soft, thick from top to bottom. 8A Grade is 100% unprocessed virgin human hair.
Some factors to consider
Wefts: Single stitch or double stitch? Double stitch wefts should reduce shedding.
Weight: The standard weight of sew-in hair bundles are 100 grams or about 3.5 oz. Is the bundle cheaper because it weighs less?
100% Human Hair: We only sell 100% human hair and think most of our clients prefer this. If you are looking for really cheap hair that will not last, color, or style then consider a synthetic blend.
Remy or Non-Remy: You want remy hair with the cuticles facing the same direction to reduce chances of tangling.
Single Donor or Multiple: Single Donor hair really only matters for a few types of hair including Indian Temple hair or possibly a unique gray hair. Is it necessary? 99.9% of the time we would say no. Some companies “claim” the hair bundle is from a single donor but I would not pay extra for it.
