A large majority of Remy hair has its origin in India, as such many people are wondering if the hair being sold in beauty wholesale stores and online is being taken from dead people. It is hard to understand just how there could be so much human hair for sale that comes from real, live people. As it turns out the abundance of hair extensions that find their origin in India is due to the fact that a large part of the population in India practices the Hindu religion.
The Hindu religion is filled with myths and beliefs and one of them is the root to the abundant availability of hair for hair extensions from the Indian sub-continent. There is a Hindu belief that one should sacrifice their hair in the name of a particular god in an effort to give up their ego. The sacrificing of the hair is usually done to say thanks for a blessing or in asking for a blessing. This is no new practice as it has been going for ages. The shaving of the head or the cutting of the hair is done in Hindu temples in rooms called tonsure rooms. Everyday men, women and children line up to have their heads shaved. Here the devotees sit and wait in uniformed rows to have their hair shaved and cut by men appointed by their temple. They ensure that everything is done hygienically by using disposable razors and ensuring that the tonsure room is always clean, before, during and after the ceremonies.
The shaved hair is collected and put aside for later when it will be auctioned. Persons representing companies go to these temples and purchase the hair in bulk (hair is actually sold by the ton oftentimes). Whoever buys the hair from the temples further sells it to various companies who sell hair extension products. It is here that the hair is sorted, packed, processed, washed, colored or undergo any other process prior to it being placed on the market for sale whether to wholesalers or to individuals.
This is the custom of retrieving Remy hair in Indian and is the reason there is so much Indian Remy Hair on the market; other methods of retrieving hair include getting hair from the floor after it is cut. This type of hair is non-remy human hair as the cuticles do not run in the same direction after being taken up from the floor and so they have to be stripped by a chemical process.
Though the majority of Remy hair comes from India it is not the only country of origin for Remy hair. You can find Remy hair from a variety of countries from people who willfully give up their hair willingly for whatever reason or who want to sell their hair. There is European Remy Hair, Asian Remy Hair, Brazilian Remy Hair, Mongolian Remy Hair, Malaysian Remy Hair and Peruvian Remy Hair. Read more about each type of hair below.
Russian or European Remy Hair is a good choice for a woman who is looking for hair extensions to add volume to their fine hair. It mixes well with fine hair because it is naturally fine. European Remy usually comes from Russian or Uzebekistan and comes in straight, curly or wavy styles. Because the hair is fine its relatively weightless and soft to the touch which is expected of Remy hair.
Asian hair is very strong and has a sleek manageability. The coarsest type of Asian hair is the Chinese hair which also has thicker hair follicles. It is a low luster hair that is suitable for use in African Americans since it matches the quality of the hair. You will find this hair type in the natural colors of black to dark brown – any other color and you know the hair has been processed. This type of hair will not wave up when it is wet and will frizz in humid conditions. Asian hair is the only type of hair that is strong enough to withstand great amounts of processing without decreasing the quality of hair. The only downside to this type of hair is that it does not hold curls as well as the other types of hair.
This type of hair is close to European hair but you get a lot of texture when you chose Brazilian Hair. It comes in wavy and curly textures in its natural state but can be straightened since it is 100% human hair. Brazilian hair is very distinct and it is hard to find two packs that are exactly alike. Because of this Brazilian hair is generally more expensive than other types of Remy Hair.
This type of hair shares some similarities of Caucasian hair but is thinner and lighter than European Remy hair. It is soft and silky and is great for straight styles since it lies flat while still maintaining a lot of movement. It is one of the more expensive types of Remy hair.
Malaysian hair is lighter and finer than Asian hair but it is also coarser and holds curls very well. It is highly manageable. In its most natural form it is dark brown with a lighter shade at the ends and is generally straight. There is only a small amount of naturally curly Malaysian hair which is not even curly but wavy, even the ‘straight’ version which hasn’t been processed has a sort of wave in it. It holds up well to humidity and does not frizz or swell. It is suitable for women of all ethnicities and is probably the most expensive type of hair.
This is one of the newest types of Remy hair and also one of the hardest to obtain. It is very versatile and can be used with a number of ethnicities and blends well with ones natural hair. It has a very rare texture and has superb quality.
These are the major types of Remy Hair available on the market at the moment but with the popularity of human hair extensions and the lucrative market they are being sold in it is quite possible that in the near future there will be more variety in terms of the ethnicity of Remy hair available.
