How Are Remy Hair and Non – Remy Hair Different?

In today’s wig market, you are no stranger to hearing the names “Remy hair” and “non-Remy hair”. However, sometimes they are misapplied, causing many people to misunderstand them. Remy and Non-Remy hair both have one thing in common: it is made entirely from real human hair but Remy hair is collected from a specific source, the epidermis is in good shape and arranged in the same direction, and non-Remy hair is collected from many people and then collected in piles,  The epidermis of hair is uneven and easily tangled. To have a specific view and better understand these two hair types, let’s learn more about Vina Human Hair!

What is Remy hair?

Remy is a type of human hair in its original state without any chemical or mechanical processing. This is a term for the characteristic of hair, the direction of the hair cuticle. Remy hair is collected from a certain specific source and in a way that preserves the natural texture pattern, contains features including one-sided epidermal orientation, and all hair follicles pointing in the same direction. This prevents tangled problems that are common in non-Remy hair or other low-quality hair.

What is non-Remy hair?

For non-Remy hair, the one thing that can be most easily noticed is its price. Non-Remy hair is much cheaper than other hair types because it is collected from many different sources. This way of collecting causes the directions of the epidermis to become messy, running in both directions leads to peeling, tangled fibers and reduces friction between the hairs. Hair manufacturers will use silicone to make the hair look shiny to reduce tangles, but as soon as you wash, the silicone layer will flow out and the hair will quickly become tangled.

Differences between Remy and non-Remy hair


It is a clear fact that non-Remy hair is much cheaper than Remy hair because Remy hair is collected from many different sources such as hair salons or retail hair sellers.  You can also find a lot of hair packs from China that are marketed at very cheap prices. They use plastic and paper to wrap their hair and pack it like a toy. At hair markets in India or Africa, this type of young hair – Remy is widely sold.

In addition, Remy hair is more expensive partly thanks to the meticulousness and ingenuity in production leading to better hair appearance and quality. Remy hair is also often properly packed and preserved to keep it in place.

How to collect hair

Remy hair, before cutting will be tied in place with a rubber band. Therefore, hair flows naturally in the same direction from the root to the top, from which the cuticle of the hair is not rough and always smooth, easy to style.

As for non-Remy hair, which simply cuts hair out of the head and puts it in a bag, they pay little attention to the arrangement of hair, roots, and ends that do not move in the same direction. Higher acid levels also lead to hair loss of moisture and becoming frizzy.

Epidermis of hair

The epidermis of Remy’s hair is preserved and retains its natural appearance. During collection and storage is carried out carefully to avoid damage to the epidermis. This will help the hair to be extremely silky, not tangled after use. At the same time, it is easy to style and treat the same as your hair, it will be a good choice for your hair.

This hair will be soaked in an acid solution to dissolve the epidermis, however, it will cause the hair to be severely damaged, and no longer suitable for heat exposure, coloring, or styling.
