FAQ

HAIR EXTENSIONS

  1. WHAT IS REMY HAIR?

    ANY HUMAN HAIR CAN BE REMY! Remy Hair is categorized as ‘premium’ and has its cuticle intact and running in the same direction "unidirectional cuticle" to prevent tangling. Remy hair is not always virgin hair, once virgin hair has been colored or chemically processed in any way it is referred to as Remy. Remy means the hair's cuticles are facing the direction in which they grew. The cuticles protect the hair from damage and give the hair its natural look which is why Remy hair is in high demand.

     

     

     

  2. WHAT IS VIRGIN HAIR?

    VIRGIN HAIR ONLY COMES IN NATURAL COLORS! IT IS HAIR DONATED FROM A LIVE HUMAN BEING. The highest quality weave/extension hair available to purchase. "Virgin Hair", has never been processed. It is human hair which is still in its original state as harvested from the donor, and which has not been permed, colored, or chemically processed in any way.

     

  3. WHAT TEXTURES DO YOU CARRY?

    All textures are available. 

     

  4. WHY DOES HAIR SHED?

    There are various reasons hair sheds. Products being used on your extensions, dirt in your extensions, improper installation, and many more. We are not responsible for shedding hair. We have test ALL origins of hair to make sure we bring you the best.

  6. WHAT ORIGINS DO YOU CARRY?

    Indian Hair has its own inherent advantages: it is coarse, strong, and versatile. If used in its natural state, it has a wave pattern. Hair can be straighten or wet to be worn in natural wave pattern.

     

    Brazilian Hair is a thicker texture then all other extension/weave hair. The hair can be naturally straight, curly, or wavy. It is one of the more expensive extensions/weaves available for purchase.

     

    Chinese Hair is naturally silky straight and dark in colors. This hair doesn’t hold a curl! It’s great for a long silky look!

     

    European Hair is a popular form of hair. It has a straight and soft texture. This type of hair is the only type that comes as blond or reddish brown in virgin Remy. Adequate care must be taken as the market is flooded with fakes.

    We also carry Cambodian Hair, EurAsian (mix of European and Asian Hair), Malaysian, and Peruvian Hair.
