One of the premium options available for hair pieces and wigs on the market is Chinese remy hair. This type of hair has a denier that is thicker than most hair, which tends to make it straight, though it is also durable and has an exceptional texture. It differs greatly from other types of hair due to this texture, making it unsuitable for ethnic or African American wigs, but is an excellent option for natural-looking human hair wigs of most other types.
The thing that distinguishes remy or remi human hair from other types of hair is that the hair is intact, complete with its cuticle. The cuticle is the outer layer of cells that forms a protective barrier around the strand, making the hair far more durable. It also lends the hair some texture. Remy hair has all of the cuticles running in the same direction, meaning that the hair was kept in a uniform direction when being cut, and was not processed either before or after being gathered.
Remy hair tends to be easier to maintain than other types of hair, and Chinese virgin hair is also highly durable and desirable. These types of hair are the most durable and are less prone to tangling, making them easier to maintain. Sometimes, during the styling and coloring process, hair might have the cuticle removed. This can also help reducing tangling and give the hair a silky texture, but can also make the hair more prone to deterioration over time due to reduced durability.
