Between remy and non-remy, cuticle alignment, and wondering just how many heads of hair went into one bundle, there can be quite a lot to figure out. In order to make the world of hair extensions a little less daunting, we created this quick and easy guide for you to understand exactly what you’re purchasing.

What Is Virgin Hair?
Virgin hair is human hair that is unprocessed and unaltered. It has not been colored, permed, lifted, or treated with any chemicals. To achieve different textures, Mayvenn gently steam processes the hair to create beautiful, bouncy waves and curls in an array of textures.
“Remy” is a mysterious word that’s used often, but never quite explained. “Remy” refers to the alignment of the hair cuticle, or the outermost layer of the hair shaft. It is collected from the donor in a way that keeps the hair’s cuticles aligned and going in the same direction. When the cuticles are intact, the hair stays silky smooth and is less-prone to annoyances like tangling, shedding, and flyaways.
Virgin hair is great for when you’re looking to make an investment in hair that will last for a long period of time, allow you to create custom color looks, and whip your hair back and forth with ease like it’s all yours.
What Is Colored Virgin Hair?
While it may sound like an oxymoron, our colored virgin hair is just that: 100% virgin hair in our classic textures colored just for you. We’ve taken the quality of our virgin hair extensions and made them a little more colorful.
