What's Remy Hair Extension?

Human hair extensions have existed for some time but have been made popular by celebrities sporting weaves and wigs within their various music videos and TV appearances recently. Thanks to the Internet, interesting fans (and non fans alike) can Google what type of hair extensions a star is wearing, or argument whether the said star is wearing extensions, a wig or if it's their genuine hair.

Human hair extensions were an accessory only open to wealthy stars and Hollywood performers until lately where there is an explosion in the amount of factory outlets selling variations of the term "Remy Indian hair", "100% Remy Human hair" etc. Again thanks to the Web, every retailer selling hair extensions needs to ensure they're employing the right "buzz" words to entice customers to their websites or salons to buy what is available. However, what do these buzz words is there really any method to check the claims and truly mean the retailer is making? The word Remy has morphed into a synonymous term for top quality human hair. It originates from raw Indian hair vendors as an offering in thanks for something their deity has done for them, where girls, whose beauty is judged by the amount of their hair, give their hair to the temple.

They "remit" their hair to the temple, which sells it on and uses the proceeds for charity - feeding the hungry and displaced who take refuge inside their shelters. These girls present themselves at the temple where the hair cut off and is tied in a ponytail, making certain all of the hairs are lying in an identical way to prevent tangling. Virgin hair is recognized as the top level of hair extensions since it has not been subjected to any harsh chemical processes and has the cuticle complete of it. It's this that the term "cuticle right" means. Permed, dyed or bleached hair is now not considered to be cuticle right or virgin. Other significant terms to take note of are "single drawn" and "double drawn".
