Remy hair is actually the term applied to the way the hair is processed to make human hair wigs. Sometimes, when people have their hair cut to donate to make wigs, the hair gets mixed up. That means the root-end of some of the hair strands end up matched with the tip-end of other strands. The problem with this is that human hair has a cuticle. The cuticle is made of overlapping “scales” similar to those on a fish. This cuticle is what gives the strands of hair body. When you get your hair colored to give it body, it gets body because the chemicals make the cuticle stand up, which makes your hair look fuller.
Stripping The Cuticle
If the hair gets mixed up when it is cut off of the donor’s head, the cuticles will tangle. When that happens, the hair must be processed more, removing the cuticle. This keeps the hair from tangling. You still have a higher quality, human hair wig, but it won’t be as durable as one made with Remy hair.
Human Hair Wigs
Human hair wigs, whether they are made with Remy hair or stripped hair, will always look better and be easier to style than synthetic wigs. They also can be dyed, permed, or straightened, sometimes over and over again. With special care, your human hair wig will last for years. At Wig-A-Do, you’ll get personalized training from your stylist, who will help you to get the best from your wig.
Remy hair is usually made from Indian hair that has been cut from the heads of devotees in Indian temples. The devotees make a pledge to let their hair grow for an extended period of time, without coloring it, or getting perms or straightening their hair. Once their vows are completed, they allow a priest in the temple to shave their heads. This hair is usually destined to be Remy hair, because extra care is used in collecting and processing the hair.
When Europeans donate their hair, and it is collected like Remy hair is, with the roots kept together, it is not called Remy hair. However, it is often more expensive even than Remy hair wigs.
Toupees And Hair Pieces
Toupees and hair pieces are also made from human hair. This gives the wearer the opportunity to style and restyle the hair pieces. They can be blended with the wearer’s natural hair very successfully, and, human hair toupees look as natural as your regular hair. They can be dyed to match your own hair and coloring, as well as treated to match the body of your own hair as well. If you have curly hair, your toupee can be permed to the same texture of your hair, as well.
