Fallen Hair

Most human hair sources are located in Asia. Local residents sell hair that has literally fallen in the natural shedding process to hair farmers. The hair farmers sell the hair to processors who treat the hair with an acid bath and silicon to make it shiny. This kind of hair is one of the main sources in raw hair market.

Remy hair

The term “remy hair” refers to the hair that is cut, or harvested directly from one donor. The cuticles are not stripped and remain aligned in one direction. This hair could come from any country. A major source of remy hair is Asian countries. Remy hair has a smoother, shinier, and healthier appearance than regular human hair. When washed, it will not mat and tangle.

There is another term of virgin remy hair which is quite popular in hair industry. Virgin remy hair has not been chemically processed; this hair is raw and natural in other terms. Non-virgin remy hair underwent some sort of chemical processing in order to achieve another color.

There are two types of remy hair—Single-drawn and Double-drown. Single-drawn remy hair has been collected straight from the donor but is made up of different lengths, with the cuticles intact. Double-drawn remy hair is hair that has been sorted after collecting from the donor to ensure all the cuticles are of the same length. It is the most expensive type of remy hair because it takes meticulous time to sort the cuticles.

An individual who uses remy hair products will experience less matting and tangling than an individual who uses regular human hair products. Remy hair also gives a more natural appearance than regular human hair products.
