What Is Remy Hair Made Of?

Let’s get down to the basics. Yes, Remy hair is real human hair. All Remy hair extensions are human hair, but not all human hair extenions are Remy. This isn’t turning into a SAT question, I swear. The term Remy means that the hair comes unprocessed and with a cuticle layer that is still in-tact. Meaning that it's very healthy, soft, shiny, and ultimately very high in quality!

As you probably know, synthetic hair is a manufactured fiber. Through the magic of science and technology, humans can now create hair in a laboratory. When a material can be created artificially, this drives down costs.

Human hair is more expensive because it has to be grown the natural way: on someone’s head. This takes time and effort. Gathering the hair is a process too. If it helps, imagine a woman in a stylist chair. This is where the Remy difference happens. Instead of cutting the hair and letting the pieces fall where they may, Remy hair is gathered in one bunch. Keeping the gathered hair in bundles preserves the integrity of the cuticle with the hair laying in the same direction from root to end. This prevents tangling and provides natural movement.
