Virgin Hair Vs Remy Hair

Hello Everyone!

l know it’s been a while since l’ve written a post but things have been a bit busy logistically, so l haven’t had the time to keep up to date with my blogs.  But since l have been away l have been doing extensive research into the whole “Virgin Vs Remy” hair contraversy because l wanted to really find out which hair type had a stronger argument. My findings where shocking especially to me. So here we go (Laughing out Loud)!

Ok, let’s start with Virgin hair.  This has been defined as hair that has never been chemically processed in any way, making the hair far more superior to Remy hair. Remi or Remy is hair that has been collected by a hair collector from a hair donor. The hair is tied into a ponytail ensuring that all the hairs are flowing in the same direction.  The hair is then cut and preserved in this state. The cuticles are not stripped and remain aligned in one direction. Now there are some people who say that Virgin hair and Remi/Remy hair are one in the same and there are others who say they are absolutely different. For example, processed hair is hair that is acid bathed to create a particular look and texture. This process strips the hair cuticles of all its natural purities leaving it dry, brittle, and, at times, dull. After the hair has had an acid bath it is then coated in silicone to give it that deceptive healthy lovely looking shine that washes off after a few washes and leaves the hair to show its true colours; a dry, brittle, and many times a tangled mess.

Chemically Damaged Cuticle

So on my journeys to find the best and purest hair for women to buy, l discovered a more sinister truth that was right at every woman’s doorstep.There is no such thing as Virgin hair (unprocessed hair) Why do l say that! Let me explain. So Virgin hair is hair that according to most people has NEVER BEEN chemically treated. But if we look at the shampoos and conditioners we use, we have already processed the hair ourselves.

Why do l say this? Because if you look at the back of your shampoo bottle, you will see a list of ingredients.  Common ones are:

Sodium Hydroxide (A strongly alkaline white deliquescent compound,

NaOH, used in many industrial processes i.e drain cleaner)

Alcohol (A colorless volatile flammable liquid)

Salicylate a chemical compound most frequently used in cosmetics)

Magnesium  Chloride ( the name for the chemical compounds with the formulas MgCl2 and its various hydrates).

These are just a few of the many ingredients written in fine print on the back of our Loreal, Clairol and Wella hair products that we never really bother to read. These agents are what make the hair soft smooth silky.  It’s not the 1% herbal extract that we are convinced by when we see adverts on the television. It’s really these little chemicals, however small the quantities are, that actually process the hair.

Raw Human hair

So what is my point?  l have determined that unless the person selling the hair had lived with an indigenous person in the Amazon jungle who washed their hair with wild exotic berries and water from the purest Amazonion rivers, NO ONE actually has REAL Virgin hair. I believe that there is “raw” hair meaning hair that has never been harshly chemically altered to create waves, curls, thickness, kinks etc., but only had basic treatments of a shampoo and conditioner. l have decided that Michealls will no longer be known as a “Virgin” hair vendor but as a “raw” hair vendor, meaning that you are getting 100% real South American hair that has been cut from the donor’s head and is washed and deep conditioned prior to wefting. Some might agree with my post and some might not.  But as far as l am concerned, if you are using a product that contains even 0.3% of a chemical, over time the hair will begin to change its natural state as the small percentage of chemicals in the shampoos and conditioners begin to do their magic.

We want to sell good quality hair, and we do not want to sell you processed hair as this hair’s longevity is limited. But we don’t want to keep the stereotype of being called a Virgin hair Company but we want to be known as a Raw Hair Company. We know you will continue to see that the quality of our products  will remain the same regardless of this change.

Thanks for reading!

Every body loves a sale, it’s what makes shopping exciting. That adrenaline rush when your queuing outside your favorite store  ready to shop like your on supermarket sweep grabbing as many bargins as possible, before your rival shoppers get to that one desired product!

But today l want to talk about the Human hair Industry.

Virgin Hair Mega Sales, everywhere l turn there is  a mega sale. Dont get me wrong,  some of them are legitimate businesses trying to sell of their stock. But some prey on women who are looking for a bargin. And sell them fake hair extensions and call them Brazilian or Peruvian hair. The hair is either Chinese, Indian, mixed with synthetic etc. What l find interesting is how people hardly sell fake Indian hair, some do but very few. It’s always either Brazilian Hair or Peruvian hair.
