After a spate of actresses, celebrities, and models started wearing them, an ever-increasing number of women are now discovering the benefits of Remy hair for themselves. As with any popular new product, the market is now flooded with many Remy hair brands. If you are thinking about buying a Remy hair extension or weave for the first time, here are things you need to keep in mind.
Facts about Remy hair
The term ‘Remy’ refers to natural human hair that has not been chemically processed or treated. Remy hair is considered the best type of hair extension because of its inherent lustre, flexibility, softness and longevity. Its superiority relies mainly on the fact that the hair is cuticle-aligned, meaning the cuticles are all facing the same direction. Cuticle-aligned hair is easy to maintain and style, and is less prone to tangling and frizzing.
Remy hair application—best tips
Your own hair and scalp must first be in superb condition before you add any extensions to it. If you plan to use sew-in hair extensions, ensure that your own hair is more than 2 inches in length. For glue-bonded hair extensions, ensure that your hair is more than 3 inches before you have them attached.
