The things of the real Chinese hair market that your hair vendor will never tell you.

China has the largest population in the world, and the number of human hair is very large in every year. Also, Chinese hair is relatively thick, which can be dyed into any colors. Therefore, hair brands from all over the world prefer to find hair factories in China as their vendor. But in fact, Chinese hair market is far more complicated than you think.

Through this article, we will talk about the differences between the five qualities of hair materials that often appear in the market. Hope that you can further understand the Chinese hair market, to help you better understand and know how to choose a reliable and professional hair factory.

There are five qualities related to the hair extensions material in Chinese hair material market: Non-remy hair, remy hair, (virgin remy hair in(6”-10”), virgin remy hair, virgin hair.

Actually, the well-known types of hair quality are non-remy hair, remy hair or virgin hair.

  1. What is non-remy hair?

Non-remy hair refers to the hair whose roots and tips are not in the same direction. It causes the hair scales on the hair to cross each other, and it is easier to tangle, so it must be processed with acid.

Acid processing is to remove a layer of scales from the hair, so that the hair is smoother and will not tangle, but the hair will lose the protection of scales so the service life will be reduced. Therefore, the price of non-remy hair is cheaper than the price of remy hair and virgin hair.

1.1 Non-remy hair has the largest volume in the Chinese hair market.  

1.2 But Chinese factories don’t sell too much Chinese non-remy hair but foreign non-remy hair like Southeast Asian hair and South Asian hair because their hair material volume are also very big and more important is cheaper. However, their hair is not thick as Chinese hair so that they may have some problems of bleaching and dyeing. So if you hope the hair you buy from your Chinese vendor which can be bleached and dyed into light colors, you need to make sure they sell you the Chinese hair or Vietnam hair.

1.3 The best non-remy hair in China called the Yunnan non-remy hair. Because of the quality is good so some factories will mix them into the remy hair then call them “remy hair” and sell them to you in a cheap price. Because it’s quite difficult to tell if you are not professional, so a lot of clients will get treated and they have never noticed until some of their professional clients find out. 

  1. What is remy hair?

Actually, remy hair is made from non-remy hair, only that the roots and ends of the hair are aligned in one direction by the machine.

Because the scales also go in one direction, it is not easy to tangle. Although the process makes them in one direction, this process will damage some of the scales. Therefore, the quality of remy hair is not good as the virgin hair is directly cut off.

  1. The 6”-10” virgin remy hair

Virgin remy hair in 6”-10” long called the 6”-10” virgin remy hair in China.

And there are two kinds of it.

One is the normal type, they look grey-black and they can only be dyed into the color #27.

Second is the grade one type, they look very black and they can be dyed into the light blonde

Why this type of hair material would has a name in the market?

It is because the products such as hand-tied hair pieces and dreadlocks do not need the very long hair materia, and do not need such a good-quality. The hair materials that are able to be dyed and styling would be good enough.


  1. What is virgin remy hair?

Virgin remy hair is the hair directly cut from the donor, and why it’s not the virgin hair is because clients have different demands on the ratio. And factories will mix the remy hair with the virgin hair to add the volume, meet the ratio and reduce the cost.

Virgin remy hair must not mix with the synthetic fiber.

  1. What is virgin hair? (The highest grade of hair) 

Virgin hair in also called braided hair, which is directly cut off from the donor and without any treatment, the hair was bundled for storage after being cut.

The well-known cuticle aligned hair, virgin hair and baby hair is made from this hair material.

What are the differences between non-remy hair and virgin hair(remy hair in some clients country)?


             What's the different between remy hair and non-remy hair?

  1. Look at the appearance. Virgin hair has scales, but it is generally not being acid processed and does not require emu oil. Sometimes it seems a little dry. After processing through multiple processes, the appearance of non-remy hair is shiny.

  2. Feel them by hands. Feel them from the root to the end, it is smooth; from the end to the root, it is rough, then it’s the remy hair. After removing the scales, no matter how you touch it, it is basically no tangling, and it is very smooth when you touch them. In addition, non-remy hair is much cheaper than virgin hair, so the non-remy hair is more welcomed than the virgin hair in the market.

What are the same and different points between virgin remy hair and Virgin hair?

  1. The prices of raw materials between virgin remy hair and virgin hair are not much different, but they have big difference in processing price.

  2. Most of the virgin remy hair is virgin hair, but because of the requirements of cost or ratio, factories will mix some remy hair inside.

  3. Virgin remy hair can be directly used to produce the product, and the virgin hair needs some other processes.

For customers, there is no such a thing as the best hair or the worst hair, only the matters of which one suit them better.

For some customers, they didn’t have much experience like emu oil and hair dye, so they have a very original hair, and the virgin hair may be more matches with their own hair. However, because this kind of hair is more difficult to collect, the price will be more expensive.

However, some customers often do their hair so the hair may be damaged for some points. At this time, you can choose the non-remy hair or the remy hair, which matchs your hair better and looks more natural, and the point is that the price will be more Cheap and affordable.
