Being in the hair extensions business for over 15 years,we got a lot of questions everyday.So
When I am ordering hair online or buying hair at a hair boutique how do I know the difference, how do I know real Remy hair,Indian hair, Malaysian hair, how can I tell the difference?
Well let’s stick with just Remy hair, what is Remy hair?
Remy hair, when people say, “oh I want Remy hair.” A lot of times when you ask people the common person doesn’t know that that means. What it simply means is the cuticle is still intact and all the hair is going in one direction. You want to make sure even if you buy Malaysian hair, Chinese hair, Indian whatever type of hair you’re purchasing you only want to purchase hair that is Remy hair that means the cuticle is still intact.
Why is that an advantage to you? If the cuticle is still intact that means that the hair is not going to tangle, that means the hair is not going to mat because the hair is protected by the cuticle. The cuticle to your hair is like your skin to your body, it keeps the moisture in, it keeps it shiny, it keeps it silky, it keeps its body, it keeps it moving. So if the cuticle has been removed they then have to put a silicone an artificial cuticle on the hair and you’ll be able to tell that within 5 weeks.
What non-Remy hair is that they take the hair from the floor, they weft it, they remove it by a chemical that they placed over the hair then they dip it in silicone. Well in 5 weeks that silicone is going to wash off and your hair is going to begin to tangle. So the one thing that you want to make sure is that you’re buying Remy hair meaning the hair is still intact with the cuticle and the hair is going in one direction.
One way this is Remy hair and this is Indian, one way that you can test it to make sure is that if you wet your hand dip it in some water, you go down it’s going to feel really really smooth, you dip your hands back in water you go up its going to feel kind of rough and that’s what you want. If it feels smooth going down and smooth going up that means the cuticle has been removed so you want it to feel a little rough when you’re going back up.
