Spot Real Remy Hair from the fakes.

 Remy Hair extensions are considered to be the best quality hair that you can buy. We are going to break down for you how spot the real from the fake.

  With Remy Hair the cuticles are not stripped and remain aligned in one direction. Non Remy Human Hair will usually undergo a cuticle stripping process called an Acid Bath. Then, a silicone is placed over the cuticles to give the hair a faux shine and smooth apperance. Over time this silicone wears off and therefore the hair will return to its natural state, causing the hair to mat and tangle. Remy Hair does not mat because all the cuticles are aligned without the use of silicone.

  There are two different types of Remy Hair, Virgin and Non Virgin. Virgin Hair is simply hair that has not been processed in anyway.There may be several differences in the types of Virgin extensions that may affect the feel or style of the hair but that is mainly due to the origin of the extension itself. A non-virgin Remy hair extension is the exact opposite. It has been treated with either a styling or colouring agent to change the original look of the piece.


You can tell the real from the fake in several ways.


  1. First of all is the price. If the hair is considerably cheaper than Remy Hair then this should raise your suspicions.If something is too good to be true then it usually is.
  2. Remy Hair has more shine and is smoother than regular Human hair.
  3. The ends of Remy Hair have a slightly lighter shade than the top.
  4. If you expose Remy Hair to a flame it will burn instantly and will have an unpleasant smell. Synthetic hair will melt slowly rather than burn.
