Virgin Hair? What's The Difference

It can be a little confusing of all the different kinds of virgin hair. I always get asked what’s the difference between virgin hair and Remy virgin hair. Or which exceptionally is the best. So I decided to give a description of virgin hair and my hair.

Virgin hair is hair that has never been processed or treated with ANY most naturalchemicals. The hair is in its natural state with its cuticles running in the same direction and tact. You can bleach, dye and process Virgin hair just as you would your own.

Remy's hair is hair that has all the cuticles running in the same direction. Remy's hair differs from Virgin hair mainly in that it has been CHEMICALLY processed for color or texture, but the cuticle remains intact so the hair will not tangle.


Indian – It’s the most versatile and readily available on the market. The hairs density is very fine. It’s naturally airy, light and bouncy and can easily be curled and styled. Indian hair moves effortlessly with minimal products. It also blends well with most hair textures. This hair texture can be found ranging from silky to lightly coarse. This hair will swell and become frizzy in humid weather and foggy conditions. Anti-frizz products are highly suggested.

Brazilian – Brazilian Hair is the most sought-after texture on the market right now. This hair is used diversely because of its softness, durability, and density (thickness). This texture is easiest to blend with most ethnicities from some Caucasian textures to African American relaxed textures. Brazilian hair is extremely luxurious and very soft with a lot of bodies and natural shine. Its luster is low to medium. Because of the density of Brazilian hair, you may not want to use as many bundles as you would usually use with other textures to create a full look. Due to its natural density, with this hair, less is more. Also because of its thickness, it is less likely to frizz than other hair types like Malaysian or Indian Hair. Brazilian hair will also hold curls longer than Indian or Malaysian textures. This hair is extremely versatile.

Peruvian – Peruvian Hair is the ultimate multi-purpose hair! It’s incredibly soft and ultimately feather light! You can have up to five bundles of a Peruvian hair installed yet still maintain a feathery light, maintainable style. This hair is coarser in texture than Indian or Brazilian hair, and its luster is low to medium. It blends very well with African-American relaxed hair textures and medium Caucasian hair textures. This hair is Luxurious and another one of our favorites.

Malaysian – Malaysian Hair is a highly sought after texture and a trendy option among celebrities. Malaysian hair has an incredibly luxurious feel and is sleek and shiny, but not excessively shiny. Its luster is low to medium-similar to Brazilian hair. This hair holds curls exceptionally well without the use of products. It is generally very dark brown; close to black with some bundles may having lighter ends. This hair blends very well with most hair types including African American. It does not swell or frizz in humid conditions making it low maintenance.

To be honest I like all the virgin hair I just described. Hey I am a hairstylist, so you know we change our hairstyles a lot.
