BUT WHICH TYPE OF HAIR IS BEST FOR WHICH PURPOSE? WHAT IS REMY HAIR? WHY ARE SOME HAIR PIECES MORE COSTLY THAN
OTHERS? THIS SHORT GLOSSARY WILL HELP YOU FIND EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED.
Remy hair is the finest quality human hair - the
natural cuticles are kept intact, all aligned in the
same original direction, making extensions easy to
manage and tangle free with the natural lustre and
shine of healthy real locks.
Lower grade extensions are made from non-remy
human hair – which means that cuticles have been
stripped from all strands.
Remy*can be spelt in two ways - with a ‘y’ as in
Remy or with an ‘i’ for Remi. Both versions are
correct and refer to the same type of cuticle intact,
aligned hair - i.e. cuticles run in one direction.
