What is remy hair? Remy human hair is hair that is carefully harvested so that the cuticles are perfectly aligned for a softer, silky feel and carefree styling. If you look at your natural hair, it all flows from your part in the same direction. Remy hair does the same thing, meaning it's as close to natural as you can get your extensions to be.
About Remy Hair
If you want to see the difference between remy human hair and non-remy human hair, think about haircuts in a salon. If a stylist were to put someone's long hair in a ponytail, hold it close and snip, that would produce Remy Human Hair. Conversely, if the stylist were to snip, snip, snip and then bundle the cuttings from a receptacle, the cuticles would be scattered in different directions. Many wigs are made from this process, and they can be softened chemically to make it easier to style; however, it will not have the same outstanding quality as remy human hair.
Virgin remy hair is simply remy hair that has not been chemically processed. One distinct advantage of virgin remy hair is the natural gloss that mother nature provides. Virgin remy hair is not always basic black—many dark haired women have lovely natural auburn or copper highlights and remy weaves made with virgin remy hair can blend these gorgeous naturally highlighted strands in with your own hair for an amazing look.
Remy weaves can be colored or curled. A remy weave doesn't have to be made from pure virgin hair to be fabulous, as due to the alignment of the cuticles it always looks smooth and shiny, even if it is treated by bleach or wave processing. Your remy weave is a treasure, so don't overdo the bleaching or processing. If in doubt about how to care for your remy hair, always ask a salon professional.

Remy Hair Extensions Price
It pays to do some comparison shopping when buying remy hair. Make sure it is 100% real remy hair, not remy-like hair. Imitation can be a sincere form of flattery, but not when it comes to getting the real thing. One you have found a quality company from where to purchase your remy hair extensions, you need to consider the following.
Are you buying clip in extension for a temporary look or will you be installing “taped in” extensions for semi-permanent wear? Clip in extensions are usually cheaper but need proper installation to keep them looking as natural as possible. Your Remy hair extensions price also depends if you are purchasing remy virgin hair or chemically processed remy hair, with virgin hair being more expensive.
Another factor is the look you want to achieve. Remy hair extensions price is determined by how many bundles you need (if we are talking abour weaves). The average length for extensions is 12 to 22 inches, and if you want longer, the price for your remy hair extensions set will increase.

There are companies that offer wholesale remy hair extensions online, however, we ask that you avoid these as there is no way of validating the quality until you have purchased the hair. Instead give us a call and see what wholesale prices we can offer.
Taking Care of Remy Hair
Like all extensions, remy hair does not receive from the scalp receiving those natural oils that keep it conditioned. Therefore, it requires regular maintenance to keep it looking fresh. It is advised that you wash the hair at least once a week with moisturizing, shampoo and conditioner. Here is how to clean the hair. Take a soft bristled brush and gently brush the hair to remove any tangles. Start at the bottom of the extension and move upward. Wet the hair, add shampoo, wash gently. Rinse off the shampoo. Apply conditioner and rinse. Wrap a towel around the hair to remove excess moisture. Take a comb and run through the hair to remove tangles. Let the hair completely dry naturally. Never brush the Remy hair extension or Remy hair while it is still wet. Blow dry hair gently on a low setting. Wrap the Remy hair at night to avoid tangles. Avoid chlorine and salt water, if possible. They could damage the hair.
