How to Distinguish Remy Har and Virgin Hair?

"Virgin Hair Extensions" is a term often used when purchasing hair extensions, and most of our customers have no idea what "Virgin Hair Extensions" actually are. Most people think virgin hair is never processed, but that's not true. Although this type of hair requires minimal processing, it still needs to be processed to create perfect color consistency between dye batches. So what kind of hair is considered virgin hair. What is the difference between Virgin hair and remy hair? Let us help you distinguish them

Third: Hair Follicles

Virgin hair mainly comes from a donor, which is healthy hair cut directly from the donor's hair, so there are no hair follicles at the bottom of the hair in virgin hair extensions.
Remy hair comes from multiple donors, mainly from donors who collect their own naturally shed hair. As we all know, hair that falls out naturally will have hair follicles, so the hair bottom of remy hair extensions may have hair follicles, that is, there will be small black spots at the bottom. Seeing if there are small black dots on the bottom is a quick way to tell if the hair is virgin hair or not.
