Should My Lace Wig or Extension Be100% Remy Human Hair?

The short answer is yes!

Remy is often seen as a description when you are buying human hair lace front wigs, full lace wigs, hair extensions or hair weave but exactly what does the term 'remy' (or remi) actually mean?

Beware the Non Remy Hair!

When the hair is harvested from the donor, it should be cut carefully so that all the roots are kept together at one end and all the tips at the other. Some full lace hair wigs are knotted from the left over sweepings from the hairdresser's floor and you can be sure that the tips & roots will be mixed up together. This will cause the hair to tangle and matt very quickly after just a few washings as the underlying cuticles will rub against each other and cause friction and static electricity. To prevent this the manufacturers often damage the hair by stripping off the top layer and replacing it with silicone to give the feeling of a silky straight however, this silicone soon wears off after just a few washes and the hair will become coarse and unmanageable.

The Beauty of Natural Remy Hair

Remi hair on the other hand will have all the cuticles aligned correctly making the hair easy to comb (and finger comb in the case of a bodywave lace front human hair wig) and making it far less prone to tangling. This gives longevity to the hair so that your full lace, lace front, or extensions will maintain their natural beautiful look. And adding a touch of 100% virgin argan oil from Morocco can help keep the lustre& vitality so essential for healthy & gorgeous hair.

Remy vs Virgin - the difference!

But just because the hair is remy, it does not mean that it is 100% natural virgin human hair! It could still have been dyed or had other chemical processes done to it. Only 100% virgin human hair is completely natural. So generally, remy is better than non remy but virgin is the best of all!

Full Lace Wigs vs Lace Fronts

Both types of wigs can come with remy human hair and the choice of which to buy is entirely up to you. But whatever the style, be it a silky straight yaki straight kinky straight lace wig or a bodywave lace wig, deep wave lace wig, or water wave just make sure its remy!

Remy Hair Extensions and Remy Weaves

And of course, the same goes for your hair extensions, whether you have Brazilian straight extensions, virgin Malaysian hair, Indian body wave hair or thick black Chinese hair wefts, just make sure its remy if you want the best quality!
