One of the most common questions from clients that have been “shopping” around for Russian hair extensions is “How do I know that I am being sold real Russian hair”.

So many say they offer Russian hair BUT they don’t and short of doing a DNA test to determine the origin of the hair, there is no way to be 100% certain. However, if you know what to look for there are a few clues which can help to identify the Chinese and Indian hair masquerading as Russian. 

This hair is collected in individual ponytails such that all the cuticles are facing the same direction from root to end. This ensures that the hair does not tangle or matt and will behave exactly like your natural looking hair.

How to Identify Real Russian Hair?

It is also helpful to know what to look for when handling Russian hair. Clients often ask why our hair is less shiny than the hair they have seen elsewhere. While shiny hair compared to normal scalp hair may impart a feeling of quality and be construed for Russian hair, it shouldn’t. Shiny hair simply means that the hair has been covered with a silicone layer. This gives it a simulated healthy look and while in the beginning the hair seems shiny and beautiful, after a few washes the silicone layer starts to wash away and the colour fades leaving the hair with a dull matt appearance.

100% human hair which is NOT REMY is cheaper, but is coated with silicone, which creates the illusion of silky great quality hair, but you will find that after a few washes you will see the poor quality, tangling and will deteriorate quickly. This will cost you more money in the long run.

However our  Remy Human hair has its cuticles aligned creating soft luscious hair  you can wash it many times without the loss of quality with a longer lifespan it will work out more cost effective. You will appreciate the natural texture of this hair.
