WHAT TO KNOW WHEN DECIDING TO BUY REMY/INDIAN REMY HAIR/VIRGIN HAIR!
I was in the nail shop the other day when the topic of Indian Remy/virgin hair came about for the most part everyone agreed that when it came down to hair money was not a problem. I have invested in Indian Remy/virgin hair simply because it's just that an investment. Everyone doesn't have $600 plus laying around for hair but understand that hair with the proper treatment/care that same hair can last you months and sometimes up to a year. I recommend for beginners to Remy/virgin hair try using a pre packaged Remy like bobbi boss, first remi, velvet and hollywood. It will be a bit cheaper but you will definitely tell the difference then what you've been rocking prior.
so you've decided that you want to take the leap and invest in premium hair?
Virgin Remy hair is absolutely natural hair and unprocessed. Natural hair color of Indian women varies from natural black to dark brown. Hence, when you buy virgin Indian Remy hair, you may not get the exact color you want. The color may even be slightly different between the bundles you purchase. However, during installation, the bundles can be blended nicely to give a very natural look, just like the natural hair of Indian women. Typically, hair lovers who desires a real natural look prefers this type of hair. However, if you want a specific color, then you can ask your stylist to color the virgin hair to the color you like. Since, this hair is unprocessed and has all its cuticles intact, it takes coloring very well. This is another reason, many women prefer virgin Indian Remy hair for custom matching hair color to your style.
The cuticle is the outer layer of the hair and is responsible for the protection of the hair. It is made up of several layer of cells that lay on top of each other like shingles, as shown under a microscope in the picture above. Cuticles are directional pointing out from the scalp toward the end. You cannot see them with the naked eye but you can feel them is you run your finger from the bottom of a long hair toward the scalp. It is this layer that is removed or not removed that determines the quality of the hair.
Remy Hair also know as cuticle hair is hair that has been collected from a single donor/person. The hair is gathered into a pony tail, tied off and then cut. This method of hair collection keeps all of the hairs cuticles running in the same direction. All of the hairs cuticles running in the same direction is what makes this hair Remy hair. The hair is then gently processed for color, waves and curls. This hair is matt free and can last for 12 months or more depending on personal maintenance and wear.Virgin Remy Hair is hair that is collected in the same manner as explained above thus making it Remy, however this hair does not undergo any type of chemical processing for color, waves and curls. This hair has been left in it's natural state. Virgin Remy hair depending on the origin, typically comes in only dark colors such as a natural 1B/2 as this is the natural hair color of the donor. This hair is matt free and can last up to 18 months or more depending on personal maintenance and wear. It's the creme of the crop, it doesn't get any better than this.
BE AWARE OF FAKE SELLERS/SELLING FAKE REMY HAIR!
YES I SAID IT FAKE, FAKE AND MORE FAKE! when deciding to purchase hair especially online I encourage you to investigate the company that you have decided to purchase from. If their website doesn't look professional and don't provide you with a number to contact DON'T buy from that seller. If you can't contact them now after they get your money you can almost bet they definitely will not want to be reached. If they price sounds to good it likely IS there is no way 22 inch is going to cost $50 dollars a pack. This is your money your investment so of course take it seriously.
QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN BUYING THE HAIR (WHAT YOU KNOW IS IMPORTANT)
- DOES THE HAIR COME FROM ONE DONOR? (Doing that prevents the Remy hair from a single donor getting mixed up with another donor with different hair texture. It ensures consistent quality in each bundle.)
- ARE THE CUTICLES ATTACHED?
- IS IT SINGLE DRAWN? (A benefit of 'single drawn' Remy is that the cuticles run in the same direction preventing the hair from getting all matted and tangled, leaving you with natural looking, glossy hair extensions. )
- RETURN POLICY
- WHERE CAN YOU SEE THEIR OTHER PRODUCTS (FB,TWITTER,WEBSITE ETC)
- CAN I PAY THREW PAYPAL? (THEIR PRIVACY AND DISPUTING ARE THE BOMB)
