What Are Remy Hair Extensions?

It is collected in such a way that all the cuticles and follicles of the hair follow the same direction, that is they are set in a unilateral direction. This specific kind of Remy hair collection makes it more manageable and tangle free and matt-free.
This means that with Remy hair extensions there are very fewer chances of getting your hair extensions tangled or matted. They are collected through a method where all the strands of hair, from root to tip, follow the natural direction of the hair in which they grew, which makes them soft, silky and natural to touch. They blend in perfectly with natural hair.
The only setback with Remy hair is that they are very expensive and will also last you a long tie with proper care. The Remy hair is then slightly processed which means it is coated with silicone or further shine and the protective layer.
