A human hair wig or topper is preferred by many as it provides the most natural, realistic feel, texture, weight, and movement. However, not all human hair wigs are created equal. Hair quality is perhaps the single most important factor to consider. There are plenty of inexpensive options out there, but in the long run, you get what you pay for. Lower quality hair means more tangling and breakage and they usually don’t last any longer than a synthetic wig. Premium Remy human hair is easier to style, tangles less, and will extend the life of your piece.
What is Remy Human Hair?
REMY means the direction of the cuticle of the hair.
Remy human hair is collected through a method in which hair strands are aligned in the natural direction as they grew. Remy hair is more expensive and looks more natural due to the tedious process that the hair goes through to not damage the hair cuticles. Think of cuticles as scales… if they were to go in opposite directions, it would cause friction, which would result in tangling and breakage. Virgin remy hair has been minimally processed to protect the integrity of the hair and keep the hair cuticle intact. Remy human hair is a smoother, shinier, and has a healthier appearance than non-remy hair.
Types of Human Hair
There are three basic types of human hair used in wigs: Asian, Indian, and Caucasian (also called European hair).
Asian Hair/Chinese Hair – There are subsets of Aisan/Chinese hair – Indonesian, Malaysian and Mongolian. Indonesian hair is finer to start with and does not need to be processed quite as much. Malaysian hair is heavier, thicker and more dense. It is not as shiny as the Indian or Asian hair, with a texture that feels very soft and smooth and has lot of body. Mongolian hair is a bit more dense than Caucasian/European hair. It’s soft and silky, has a lot of movement and lays down great for straight styles.
Indian hair is naturally thick and lustrous. Indian hair is heavier than European hair but lighter than Asian hair. It’s naturally thick and has a healthy shine. Indian Remy hair is very high quality hair but hard to collect, resulting in a higher price.
European Human Hair (Caucasian)
European human hair is the strongest and most durable human hair for wig making. The hair denier (thickness) is finer, lighter weight, and the hair is softer and silkier with a lot of movement. This type of hair is more scarce and in high demand, resulting in a higher cost.
