Remy (remi)/Cuticle Right Hair – Remy hair is the very best sort to buy for extensions. Unfortunately many firms at present are calling their hair remy and it is not really remy. True remy hair has been rigorously braided or tied before being reduce from the donors head. This keeps all the cuticles aligned, thus eliminating tangling and matting. The hair needs to be fastidiously handled by means of all coloring processes to maintain the cuticle aligned. Actual remy hair ought to last three-4 months if it has been chemically textured or lightened to a level 6 or higher and 6 month or more if the shade is degree 5 or darker with no chemical texture.
Non-Remy/Fallen or Brushed Hair – That is the cheapest available and isn’t beneficial for long run put on. Non-remy hair is collected from slicing room floors, brushes and wherever else lengthy hair can be discovered. It’s then thrown in a vat of acid to wash away as much of the cuticle as possible to attempt to forestall tangling,(with no cuticle the hair swells terribly with washing and humidity). At this point coloring will take place. The hair is then put in a silicone bath to make it shiny and feel beautiful. The hair is then aligned and put into wefts, keratin tips or bulk. If a texture needs to be permed into the extensions more silicone will must be added. Chinese language is the perfect hair to go although the acid bath due to its power. There are some firms who are superb at this process and may produce a product with minimum tangling. The trick for them is to get the entire cuticle off with out the acid destroying the hair-any remaining cuticle will trigger matting and tangling as soon as the silicone is washed away. If you are paying underneath $125 for 4oz of hair more than likely it is non-remy hair.
Single Drawn Hair – This hair has been placed in a pony tail or braid after which minimize from the donor’s head. At this point the very shortest hairs are eliminated, (the shortest hairs are “drawn” out, therefore the identify single drawn). This leaves some hairs which are shorter than the complete length giving it a slight tapered, layered look. This makes for easy mixing and probably the most natural look. 95% of all real remy hair is single drawn. If you’d like a very thick bottom edge to your shopper’s hair order the extensions 2″-3″ longer and trim.
Double Drawn – This kind of hair is all one length. There aren’t any shorter hairs within the extensions like single drawn. All of the short hair has been “drawn” out.

Because of this only a few corporations have remy double drawn extensions. The advantage is you always get the size you need without it being too skinny at the bottom. A drawback is except you’re an expert at cutting with a razor the hair can look doll like and rather fake.
