Remy hair can be chemically treated to achieve some rarer colors, and textured for more availability. To qualify as real virgin hair, that hair mustn’t be even blow-dried or exposed to harsh agents such as cigarette smoke or drugs. All virgin hair must come from a single donor, which ensures consistency in texture. The controversy of when to use the term Remy, and when is virgin a more suitable name will likely continue.
“Remy (Remi) and virgin hair are terms that are often used interchangeably, but they rarely, if ever, signify the same. Remy can be either virgin or non-virgin, but virgin is always Remy, says hairstylist Rickie Stone . The term Remy itself does not refer to any brand name, but to the process of collecting hair that leaves the cuticles intact.
