1.2/ Classification of hair extension based on material

In terms of classification based on material, hair extensions can be divided into 2 branches: human hair extension and synthetic hair extension. So keep moving to find out the typical features and difference between these types of material.

1.2.1/ Human hair extension

Human hair extension products refer to hair extensions made of 100% human hair. There are 3 subclasses namely: Virgin hair, remy hair and non-remy hair.


Human hair extension classified based on the origin

  • Virgin hair extension: This kind of material is collected directly from only 1 donor. The hair is unprocessed and all hair strands follow the same direction, which helps virgin hair extensions become a high-end product in the beauty industry. They are high-rated thanks to the pureness, sleekness, durability and natural color. Besides, the ability to bleach to 613 color also attracts hair resellers or vendors in many countries, especially European and Russian customers. Due to the extra excellent quality, virgin hair extensions will be sold at a high price.
  • Remy hair extension: Remy hair refers to hair gathered from a group of people sharing the same characteristics of hair. The consistency of hair texture is not as high as virgin hair but the quality is still guaranteed. In addition, remy hair can be dyed in many colorful tones, meeting different demands from customers. Remy hair extensions are appreciated because of their diversified styles, colors, length with reasonable price.
  • Non-remy hair extensions: These kinds of hair extensions are made of mixed hair, which is collected massly from public places, hair salons, pipes, floors… . Non-remy hair is in poor quality as it is frequently processed, seriously damaged and the hair strands don’t follow the same directions. These typical characteristics make non-remy hair extensions low-rated. In fact, extensions made of non-remy hair are easily tangled, harsh and shedding. However, the short lifespan with inferior quality contributes to the amazingly cheap price of non-remy hair extensions.

1.2.2/ Synthetic hair extension

Synthetic hair extensions are made from artificial hair strands like nylon or acrylic. These fibers are put under various chemical processes to achieve the look and feeling like real human hair. 

At first, synthetic hair extensions seem so smooth and shiny. However, washing and blowing can wear off the silicone coat, making the extensions matted, tangled and shedding. Hair factories and vendors usually offer customers a cheap price.

On the other hands, non-remy or synthetic hair will meet the expectation of price from customers with low budget. If you consider both guaranteed quality and affordable price, remy hair extension definitely is what you need.
