Virgin hair and remy hair are both terms used to describe types of human hair used in the hair extension and wig industry. While both types of hair are of high quality, there are some key differences between them.
Virgin hair is human hair that has never been chemically treated or processed in any way. It is completely natural and unaltered, and it is typically collected from a single donor. Virgin hair is highly sought after for its quality and is often more expensive than other types of human hair.
Remy hair, on the other hand, refers to human hair that has been collected in a way that preserves the cuticle of the hair. The cuticle is the outermost layer of the hair, and when it is preserved, the hair remains smooth, tangle-free, and more durable. Remy hair is typically collected from multiple donors, and it may have been chemically treated or processed in some way, such as for color or texture.
The key difference between virgin hair and remy hair is that virgin hair has never been chemically treated or processed, while remy hair may have undergone some processing, but it is still of high quality because the cuticle is preserved. Both virgin hair and remy hair are considered to be high-quality options for hair extensions and wigs, but virgin hair is generally considered to be the most luxurious and desirable type of human hair.
