What is virgin hair?

In order to qualify as virgin hair, the hair must be 100% pure. This means that it can not have undergone any type of chemical processing. When you purchase hair that is classified as “virgin,” this means that it has not been permed, color-treated, dyed, bleached, blow-dried, steam-treated or gone through any other form of chemical processing. Hair that has been exposed to any type of harsh agent can sometimes cause the hair cuticles to not be intact or running the same direction. So if the hair you have purchased does not have that, it’s not virgin hair. 

It comes from a single donor

Another qualification of virgin hair is that it comes from a single donor. These virgin hair bundles may come in different textures and wave patterns since everyone’s hair is different. The good thing about this is that it allows you to find the hair texture that best fits your own. There is truly something for everyone! Of course, the hair is consistent and will make for a better match for you. 

It’s the highest quality type of hair

Virgin hair is the highest quality of hair because of its pure form. This can also mean that it may last longer than other forms of hair. However, you do need to care for it properly. Since it is so pure, you’ll want to be extra aware of the products that you use and how you’re styling them. Be gentle, after all its human hair so you want to be as gentle as you would to your own hair. 

What is the difference between virgin and Remy hair?

Another term that is frequently used is the term Remy hair. Remy hair is gathered from a donor in a way that keeps the hair’s cuticle properly aligned in relation to the neighboring hairs. This means that their hair is usually softer and silkier. Remy hair is often used with wigs and other hairpieces. Remy hair is different from virgin hair because Remy hair may have undergone chemical treatments like coloring or perms (to get the perfect texture).
