Virgin hair Vs. Human Hair Vs. Remy hair 

Virgin hair Vs. Human hair

Virgin Hair is 100% human hair but not all human hair extensions are made of virgin hair. Only 100% unprocessed hair can be considered virgin hair, even if the hair just have been dyed once time, it is no longer virgin hair. This is the major difference between virgin hair and human hair.

Remy hair Vs. Human hair

Remy hair is 100% human hair, but not human hair extensions are made of Remy hair. Remy hair refers to human hair that has intact cuticles and all cuticles are facing one direction. That is the major difference between human hair and Remy hair and also why the Remy hair is silky and natural in texture.
