Remy Human Hair-What is it?


As we all know, Remy human hair is the most expensive type of wig. They are very expensive, but more and more people choose Remy human hair, Are they really worth the price? This article will teach you how to recognize real Remy hair and how to use your eyes to identify it before you buy it.

What Is A Remy Human Hair Wig?

A Remy human hair wig has an in-tact cuticle layer, which is the outer layer of each hair strand that lays like shingles on a roof (all traveling in the same direction). Remy’s hair is a hairpiece or wig that is also made of real human hair with the cuticle still intact. So if a product is described as ‘Remy’ you can be assured it is not synthetic. Every strand in Remy’s hair goes in the same direction. This means the cuticle is all going in the same direction in the bundle, making this type of wig the very best quality.

Everyone considers Remy’s human hair wigs as better wigs. In fact, the term ‘Remy’ only applies to the way the hair is gathered and processed. It doesn’t represent anything about the grade of hair or the origin (which apparently makes a difference in texture and durability)

What is the advantage of Remy’s human hair?

  • A natural cuticle means the hair will not tangle. Non-Remy wigs have artificial cuticles made from silicon. After use, the silicon will begin to wash out and the wig will start to tangle.
  • A natural cuticle, compared to the artificial cuticle, allows the hair to move and flow more naturally.
  • Remy Hair lasts longer than regular Human Hair wigs. Remy Hair tends to still look fresh even months later, but it requires more care than a regular human hair.

How can I tell if a wig is a real Remi Hair?

There are always some unscrupulous merchants who try to use non-human hair to impersonate Remy’s hair for sale, and very often it is difficult to distinguish between human hair and non-hair. Here are a few ways to roughly identify whether it is human hair or not.

  • Run your fingers up and down the wig very gently pinching the strands. If it feels smooth going down and rougher going up, that is Remy Hair. If it feels smooth both ways. That means the cuticle has been removed, thus the product is not Remy’s human hair.
  • Compare the root color to the color of the hair tips (works for hair extensions). Since Remy Hair hair means all hair is going in one direction, the color difference between the roots and the tips will be much more distinct. Non-Remy hair, however, the root and the hair tip color will look the same because the hair direction is mixed.

Non-Remy is hair that does not have its roots aligned (Roots and tips not traveling in the same direction).

Hair Grade: Cuticle Intact VS Cuticle Damaged

Since the cuticle runs in both directions it requires a higher concentration of acid. Eventually results in hair with very low moisture, leading to dry straw-like hair.

With NON-REMY the hair cuticles are stripped usually from over-processing and the hair is thrown together which causes tangling. To mask this some manufacturers use heavy silicone to make the hair appear shiny and healthy but beware as soon as you wash it the silicone comes off, and the hair mates into a huge mess.  Some shops will go so far as to guarantee the hair UNTIL you wash it.

The quality of the hair is the biggest factor in the price.

There is a grading system for human hair wigs, A, B, or C grade hair is generally found in the market.  A grade is of course the best quality, but if it is Remy, no matter the quality, there is an added cost to the wig. No matter what grade of hair your wig or extensions are, it is better to have Remy as there is less tangling overall.
