What Remy human hair means

If you’re using hair extensions for the first time, you probably don’t know which ones to buy. You might want to try some cheap extensions first. On any online platform, such as Ebay or Aliexpress, you can find a wide variety to choose from. Most of the extensions you’ll see on this type of platform have one thing in common and that is that almost all of them say in the description or in the package, that they are “remy human hair”. But what does remy human hair mean? All the extensions that say it, are they really? Knowing the answers to these questions will help you avoid being fooled.

What “Remy Human Hair”

That expression is used to call human hair extensions Remy. But what does Remy mean?

The word Remy specifically refers to the harvesting process. The Remy hair is defined as human hair from a single donor. In addition, the cuticles remain intact and the hairs are organized keeping the same direction from root to tip. This means that all the roots are at one end of the plot, and the tips are at the other end. In other words, it mimics the natural growth of hair.

Because the cuticles stay in the original direction, hair doesn’t get tangled or tangled any more than your own natural hair. The intact cuticles are flat, forming a reflective surface, producing a glossy, long-lasting, tangled-free appearance.


For that reason, remy hair retains its beauty for a long time. After you use and wash Remy hair you will find that it remains shiny and natural looking.

All the extensions that say on your Remy human hair package, are they really

No. It’s sad to say, but there’s a lot of deception in this subject and the lack of information only makes it worse. It may seem that all the extensions sold are Remy hair, but the truth is that they are not. As surprising as it may seem, non-Remy hair extensions represent the majority of the hair sold in the world. In many cases even the packaging of the extensions says Remy human hair, but after washing it you realize that it is not Remy. Worse still, there are cases in which it is not even 100% human hair, but a mixture of human and synthetic.


Hair that is not remy lasts about 3 or 4 months. After a few washes it loses its softness and shine. This is because it’s waste hair. It’s also called grout hair. It is collected in the hairdressers, who keep the hair they cut to customers. It is then repaired, paired and used to make extensions.

During processing he was given an acid bath, which stripped him of most of the cuticles. It was then given a wax bath to give it an artificial shine. In addition, that wax or silicone bath adds weight to the hair, so you pay more for less. That layer of wax gives it a great look, but it doesn’t last long.

Non-Remy hair becomes tangled and spongy because the cuticles, or what’s left of them, rub against each other. Therefore, after a wash or two, you will not be able to use them anymore, as they will have become too tangled. That, of course, doesn’t suit you.

How do you know if some extensions are Remy hair or not, even if the package

says so?
Well, the first evidence is usually the price. Suspicion of extensions that are cheaper than normal. Therefore, if they are too cheap it is that they are not Remy, because quality is not given away.

Ask yourself if it’s really worth using extensions that don’t look nice. If you want to wear an attractive hair, you will not succeed, if you are satisfied with extensions that are not remy. You will only feel ashamed when a simple breeze leaves your hair all scruffy and tangled.

Some extensions of 100% human hair, Remy quality, in the long run are cheaper, because they last much longer, and will not leave you in shame.
