What is Remy Hair?
Human hair collected directly from a hair donor is Remy Hair. It is sometimes referred to as Virgin, Cuticle Hair and Cut Hair. The majority of human hair sold in the industry is non-cuticle hair. The hair cuticle has been stripped by using an acid-bath. With Remy hair we do not do this so the hair cuticle is intact, therefore the hair is stronger and has the potential to last MUCH longer if properly maintained.

Every hair piece contains only hair of the same length. This makes this type of hair piece also the most expensive one as this procedure is done by hand, not by machine. For example: a hair piece of 18" single drawn has hair lengths of 18" only.
What do the terms "bulk" and "wefted" mean?

Machine vs. "Hand Tied" Weft?
Hand tied wefts are made by tying strands of hair around a strong weaving thread; this process is done by hand. Our hand tied wefts are much thinner than machine wefts because of the precision involved, and lay flat on the scalp. Machine wefts are made by sewing strands of hair with a sewing machine. Hand tied wefts are much thinner then machine wefts. They will lay flat against your scalp to give you a more natural look and significantly reduce lumps caused by bulky wefts. Hand tied wefts come in one long track and the length of the track depends on the length of the hair.
How to cut a weft?
Hand tied wefts should never be cut from the top, this is a common mistake made by even experienced hair stylists. If it is cut, then you should seal it with good glue like nail glue or fabric glue. There is no guarantee that it will not shed if it is cut. One should never sew through top of the weft and it is recommended you sew around the weft. With machine wefts, you can cut where desired. We cannot stress how important this information is, the main reason for wefts shedding is because the weft is not cut properly.
