Simply purchase a set based on the hair length you want, tape them in, and voila, you can already achieve your dream hair. You can even reuse these extensions for a year.

Also, the 100% virgin Remy hair is the highest quality human hair so you get to enjoy its wondrous effects for a long time.

 

Easy Maintenance

 

Having tape in hair extensions does not need any kind of crazy maintenance. It’s just like taking care of your own hair the way you used to. However, you need to brush more frequently to maintain the beauty of the extensions. Your natural hair and the extensions rubbing each other can actually create friction, which can shorten the life of the extensions. So don’t wait for the day to end before you brush your hair. Instead, be very diligent in brushing. You also want to be mindful of applying heat. Just avoid the tape area when using a curling or flat iron or dryers.

 

Very Versatile

Remy Hair

Remy Hair

Remy Hair, What Exactly Is It?

Remy hair extensions are the highest level of natural human human hair extensions.

Thankfully, this wonderful product can be bought for use in wigs or hair extensions. Remy hair creates the best, most durable and extensions and wigs. When making the best decision for accomplishing a natural look, Remy hair extensions are the best choice. However, what exactly is it? It is thought to be the highest point of the line in human hair because the cuticles remain intact.

This sort of hair is divided into six quality classes according to the quality of treatment and evaluation length.

There are three classes, each of virgin and non virgin hair. Virgin Remy hair is considered the best for use in wigs and extensions. It has not been artificially treated in any style. No coloring, perms, or some other treatment has occurred. This hair is 100% natural. Non virgin one has been through a chemical cleansing process on its way to becoming a wig or extension. The most well-known treatment includes changing the color of the hair.

The three refinements in each of the above classifications depend on hair length per weft. Single drawn Remy hair extensions are comprised of hairs of every distinctive length just as it actually grows on the head. The Cuticles are intact and these pieces look very natural. Double drawn hair is sorted so that every one of the hairs in a weft is inside maybe a couple inches long. This process may contain up to a 2-inch difference in strand length. The last grade is double drawn and sorted. This tedious process is so that the majority of the strands are of precisely the same in color, length and texture. Generally, double drawn and sorted are pricier than their counterparts are. As a result of the care that is required and the time it takes to make the hair so meticulously.

Virgin Remy hair extensions originate from a few distinct areas in the world.

Indian hair is the most prevalent choice because of the texture and color that can easily be adapted for people around the world. Its availability comes from different ethnic groups. The next most prevalent option is Brazil. The mix of European and Indian ancestry produces hair that is thick and suitable for people of different races. European hair is also usually utilized as a part of wigs and hairpieces.

No matter where the hair taken from, care is given to donors. Cutting the hair and keeping intact cuticles is what makes the difference between Remy hair and non Remy hair. In general, it’s considered that the hair is the best quality that a person can use for the production of wigs and hair extensions; Therefore, it is also the most expensive. It is considered by most to be well worth the price, because it can be treated exactly the same as single pieces.

Many people, especially women, decide to change their appearance using wigs and or extension. The reasons for this vary. Some may have thinning hair because of cancer treatment or other physical reasons. Others have short hair and want to change their style for longer, without having to wait for their own hair to grow. Whatever the reason, most want wigs or extensions to look as natural as possible.
