The demand for human virgin hair has gone global over the past years. Women all around the world have uncovered their perfect hair using and took beauty to another level by using real human hair extensions. The first use of human hair can be dated back to the 1700s and have been used for several reasons: baldness as a result of age, alopecia, as a sign of royalty, and many other reasons. The increasing demand for these real weave extensions has affected the price directly. But what is the most popular virgin hair on the market? Among all different kind of human hair extensions, the most popular and famous is the Brazilian virgin hair.

Brazilian virgin hair comes in different strand lengths, textures and forms. There are two main types of Brazillian hair extensions: Brazillian virgin hair and Brazillian Remy hair. Both variations are usually mistaken for one another by the public, however, today I will try to throw more light on the differences between them based on a few differences.

Method Of Collection

The method of collection of either one of the Brazilian human extension variations differs in the following ways:

• Brazilian Virgin Hair: Brazilian virgin hair as the name implies is a hair extension that has been untouched. It has not been altered by harsh chemical products, hair dyes, perms or bleached. This variation of virgin hair is collected from a single donor and doesn't require any alteration.

• Brazilian Remy Hair: Even though this variation is also regarded as a virgin hair, most of the time it isn't. This variation of hair might have been altered by chemical products, and are collected from a donor tied in a ponytail to ensure the cuticle moves in the natural direction.

Texture

The texture of both variations of Brazilian virgin hair is as important, as the cost of each. Brazilian Virgin hair typically has a single texture as it comes from a single donor. The cuticle of the hair is well aligned and doesn't require further alterations. Brazilian Remy hair also has a nice texture and have their cuticles running in the same direction, which makes it even more durable.

Cost

As for the cost difference in both variations, the Brazilian Remy hair takes the prize. The Brazilian Remy hair has all its cuticles flowing in the natural direction, which prevents it from breaking excessively and matting. This also makes it, even more silkier and easier to manage.

Durability

While both variations are made of 100% virgin hair, Remy's hair lasts relatively longer. Its silky texture prevents breakage allowing it to last longer while being styled naturally. The Virgin Hair is natural as well, however, over time, it can start to wear out after maximum usage. It is important to note that not all Virgin hair is Remy hair, and not all Remy hair is virgin hair. The term Remy specifically refers to the manufacturing process which entails making sure all cuticles are aligned. There other virgin hair variations that have multiple textures, and have to be treated in acid baths, and silicone to give a shiny exterior. These are not durable and will make you regret purchasing a human hair.
