Indian Virgin Remy Unprocessed
Indian Virgin Remy Unprocessed hair is the best quality human hair in the world. The hair used in our Indian Virgin Remy wigs come from one single donor (not multiple) cut direct at the temple, the cuticles are still intact and face the same direction. It doesn’t shed, tangle or dry. It can be bleached, dyed, permed and heat treated (by a professional) without being damaged. With the right care it lasts up to 24 months.
The hair is the original. It hasn’t been treated with harsh chemicals like acid to create a soft and shiny texture. Fake hair companies including the Chinese do this to make it look real, but will start to shed, tangle and dry after a few washes. Our hair only consists of real hair. No mixture with other hairs (goat hair, synthetic or chemically treated hair etc.) to make it look thick.
It is important to know that ALL hair comes from India. The Indian women willingly donate their hair to the temple as part of a religious act to receive blessing from the gods.
We have different styles and colour wigs available in Indian Virgin Remy wigs.
What is Virgin Hair?
Virgin hair is human hair that comes from the head of a single donor. It hasn’t been silicone treated to give it that extremely soft and shiny look and feel. It has some split ends because the cuticles have not been stripped with acid wash to give it that sleek and soft look.
What is Non-Virgin Hair / Fake Virgin Hair?
Fake virgin hair doesn’t come from one single donor. It’s fallen hair or hair from the brushes of Indian women, sold to collectors. Non-Virgin hair can also consist of other types of hair like goat’s hair, synthetic hair and chemically processed hair. This is all to give it that soft and full-bodied look. But after a few washes it will shed, tangle, lose its shine and become dry.
What is Remy Hair?
Remy hair is when all the cuticles are 100% aligned and face the same direction. A cuticle is the outer layer of the hair that acts like a protective shell.
What is Non-Remy Hair?
Non-Remy hair is when the cuticles are not aligned and not facing the same direction. This is when the outer protective shell has been damaged.
Why is most hair sold at beauty salon so soft and shiny?
Most hair sold at the beauty salons are not Virgin Remy hair. The hair has no split ends because it has been washed with acids that strip the cuticles all together. The hair has been coated with silicone to give it that soft look and feel, but after time the silicone will cause the hair to tangle and will become very dry.

Kanekalon has been at the forefront of synthetic fibre hair manufacturing for over 50 years and known for creating the finest hair products.
It can be styled with curling irons and other heat styling tools up to 191°C. Because the wigs are so soft and versatile, they hold curls well, giving it longer curl retention. The fibre is flame retardant, so it will not catch fire if exposed to flames. If your Kanekalon hair looks a little dull, add a touch of silicone spray.
*Remember that synthetic hair cannot be coloured. If it must be washed, use only cool water and immerse the hair in the water for no longer than 5 minutes. Place the hair between towels and press dry. Always detangle the hair before washing by using a soft de-tangler brush. Comb in sections by pressing the top hair and brushing slowly in a downward motion. Don’t ever pull the hair.
