It is the obvious choice for women of colour to make use of because it is just like their own natural hair, and as such is way less to attract attention to the truth that it may not be the wearer’s own hair.

Where does it come from?

The origin of most natural human hair pieces is Indian hair that has been gathered from the temples where it is obtainable as a donation to the Gods, maybe in return for a stroke of good luck that has befallen the donor, such because the birth of a healthy child, or along with a prayer for good luck sooner or later.

The term ‘remy’ implies that the hair is always kept lying in the identical direction from root to tail and this can help to avoid tangling because the cuticles or scales of the hair are lying in the same direction. Cheaper hair such as the scraps that may be picked up from the barber’s floor will likely be mixed up so often this hair will likely be coated with silicon to give a smoother silkier feel and to stop it from tangling an excessive amount of. Unfortunately, this may wash out with time and the hair will tend to matt unless it is carefully looked after.
