General Human Hair Knowledge & FAQs:
all hairs pointing in the same direction, and therefore the cuticles. This hair is almost always healthy and will with tender care, not filter. Genuine remy hair is naturally protected, not with a layer of silicone. Since the natural cuticles are healthy in advance. Therefore Remy-hair is considered as the highest quality of extensions.
Non Remy hair
Non remy hair means that the hair are pointing in the opposite direction.
Dandruff layers are exposed in Non-Remy hair. This most often happens when silicone layer is washed away after a few washes. They will then become entangled in each other easily and make the hair dishonest. The majority of non Remy hair is produced from hair that is naturally precipitated by brushing of the hair. The hair will be both dry and cuticle will not lie flat. Therefore the hair is covered with silicone after dyeing to make it usable. Another approach to the problem is to remove the cuticle completely and expose the hair’s cortex. This will not be filtered so easy, but will completely remove the hair’s natural structure. Non Remy, is the quality that gives the greatest problems of hair extensions today.
