The difference between human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions :
Human hair extensions are made from real human hair, taken from a donor.
CAUTION: Human hair expression only means that the hair comes from a human donor, but this does not guarantee the quality of the hair. Below, I give some tips that could help you to know the hair collection process and get an idea of the quality of the human hair extensions you want to obtain.
Human hair may have been collected from hairbrushes and hair that has fallen to the ground. This type of hair is collected in larger quantities and is therefore much cheaper than Remy Hair.
With this collection method, the hair cuticle is not in the same direction. The hair collected in this way will go through a process called « acid bath », in order to completely eliminate the hair cuticle. It is then chemically treated by dipping in silicone.
The majority of human hair sold today is non-Remy hair.
Remy hair (of high quality): this is a very good quality category of human hair extension as the hair has been carefully sorted after being collected from the hair donors who are paid for it. The cuticles are oriented in the same direction.
The term Remy is related to the process used to collect the hair and its quality as long as the standards have been respected.
By standard we mean:
– cuticle intact
– hair from the same person
– cut and assembled in the same direction
With this type of hair extensions, quality is assured, you can create your natural hairstyle look without worrying. In addition, REMY HAIR’s have a lifespan around 12 months. It will depend on how you take care of it.
Remy Hair is generally more expensive because it is of good quality.
Virgin Hair: Virgin hair is the hair that has been collected in an orientation from root to tip, without undergoing chemical treatment. The hair cuticle being unchanged this contributes to a very good quality of hair as the hair remains sandy, retains its shine etc
The quality grade of the hair is identifiable as follows: A, AA, AAA, AAAA, AAAA, 6A and 7A. This grade allows you to know the quality level of the hair, know that from 5A, you are dealing with a good quality of hair. The more A there is, the more we are dealing with a quality of virgin hair.
Hair last around 24 months
Synthetic hair is made from the fine plastic fiber in order to imitate real hair. This fiber blend does not contain human hair and leaves a less natural look when worn. Synthetic hair has a much shorter life span than 100% human hair extensions.
Now You know how to do the difference between human hair, remy hair, virgin hair and synthetic hair.
