100% Human Remy Hair Extensions
Our Remy hair is considered the finest quality of human hair since the cuticles are kept intact unlike most other non-remy hair extensions company’s. Aligning and preserving the hair cuticles in a unilateral direction ensures the natural look and feel of hair extensions.
Remy human hair extensions also tend to be the most popular types of human hair extension on the market due to their exceptional quality and value. With non-remy hair extensions, the collection process varies so cuticle directions become mixed, leading to inevitable matting, tangling and shedding problems. While the non-remy hair may initially feel silky and soft, after a number of washes the silicone coating used to keep it super smooth eventually wears off, leaving the hair feeling harsh and brittle.
In contrast, Remy human hair is collected through a method in which the hair strands are completely aligned in the natural direction as it grew. This provides a natural look, feel and smooth texture that is comparable to one’s own hair.
High end brands like Malaysia Hair Imports, ensure their extensions are made of 100% remy human hair, that has been carefully sorted and assembled to preserve their superior quality. With over 100 different styles in the broadest range of colors, thickness and length, Malaysia Hair Imports hair extensions, Mens hair systems and Wigs consistently deliver trendsetting solutions for enhancing one’s natural hair without ever having to ever compromise quality.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REMY HAIR AND NON-REMY?
The term “remy” is often translated into a different meaning than what it really stands for. It is often used in marketing and selling purposes that generally misleads the client into thinking they are getting the best grade of hair.
Remy is hair collected and sorted from various sources with the root and tip traveling in the same direction to ensure the cuticle does not tangle or matte.
The cuticles are not stripped and remain aligned in one direction.
100% Remy hair is more expensive and looks more natural due to the tedious process that the hair goes through to not damage the cuticle. Usually raw virgin hair or hair that has been minimally processed to protect the integrity of the hair has cuticle in tact.
REMY hair is a smoother, shinier, and healthier appearance than NON-REMY. This hair feels amazing even after multiple times being washed. Most of our clients can get a year or two of wear with REMY hair still looking great. The investment is great but well worth it.
Non-remy is hair that does not have it’s roots aligned (Roots and tips not traveling in the same direction).
Since the cuticle runs in both directions it requires a higher concentration of acid. Eventually resulting in hair with very low moisture, leading to dry straw-like hair.
With NON-REMY the hair cuticles are stripped usually from over-processing and the hair is thrown together which causes tangling. To mask this some manufactures use heavy silicone to make the hair appear shiny and healthy, but beware as soon as you wash it the silicone comes off, and the hair mattes into a huge mess. Some shops will go so far as to guarantee the hair UNTIL you wash it.
Remember, yes the investment is much lower however you will struggle with this hair after you wash it the first time. The hair will matte and look dull once the coating has worn off.
What’s Remy Hair?
Remy human hair is the highest grade of real, human hair that is a preferred choice for hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs because it achieves the most natural look.
Remy hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the outermost layer of the hair, known as cuticles, are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-remy hair extensions. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process also ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and relatively tangle-free throughout its lifetime.
Remy’s hair is considered to be the high quality of human hair that means the hair’s cuticles are kept intact and always going in one direction. Here are the specific features:
◆The term Remy refers to the characteristics of the hair and the method used to manufacture hair extensions. Remy hair extensions are the most popular human hair extension on the market due to the quality and price.
◆Remy hair is a high-quality hair that lasts up to a year and blends very well with your own hair.
◆When all hair strands follow the same direction, there will be almost no tangling and matting (if processed properly). With true high-quality Remy hair, the hair collected is healthy, the cuticles intact and all cuticles flow in the same direction from root to the tip.
◆To mask this they then coat the hair with silicone to make it appear soft, only to experience tangling and matting after a few washes when the silicone wears off.
At Malaysia Hair Imports we do not process our Remy hair with an advanced technology (similar processing as mink hair and cashmere hair) which ultimately try’s to preserves the cuticles even after processing, so they remain intact.
What are Remy hair extensions?
Remy hair extensions like Malaysia Hair Imports extensions use only the finest quality of remy human hair. The hair has been carefully sorted after collecting from the Cambodian hair, Malaysian hair or Burmese hair donor to ensure all the cuticles are of the same length. The hair is then bound at the base as a ponytail to make our 100% Human Remy remy hair extensions, and clips are hand-sewn onto the base to create individual wefts. These wefts are then packaged into full head sets of hair extensions. Remy human hair extensions are by far the best quality of clip in human hair extensions, hair wefts and wigs on the market because of the care that is required, the time it takes to sort the hair so meticulously, and the higher quality of hair used.
Where do our Remy hair come from?
Our Remy human hair is ethically sourced from Cambodia, Burma, Malaysia and Thailand such as:

WHAT IS RAW VIRGIN HAIR?
Raw Virgin Hair is human hair that is in its natural state. No chemical changes, no color, has not been processed, and all cuticles are intact. All hair sold by Malaysia Hair Imports is Raw virgin hair.
HOW CAN I MEASURE THE LENGTH OF MY HAIR PRODUCTS?
Your Cambodian, Malaysian, Burmese hair extensions and wigs should be measured to the fall of the hair. Start 0 at the weft or top of wig cap and measure to the ends of the bundle. The Cambodian and Burmese Wavy, Cambodian Body Wave, Burmese Curly, and Kinky Curly hair extensions and wigs must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Again, start 0 at the weft; pull the hair straight from the ends, and the length will be at the tips of the hair.
Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
CAN THE HAIR BE STRAIGHTENED OR CURLED?
Your new hair from Malaysia Hair Imports 100% Human Raw Virgin hair extensions can be styled like your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will.
Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protecting product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours.
CAN I COLOR MY HAIR BUNDLES?
Any chemical processes should be done by a professional or at least consulted by one. This purchase is an investment for you and chemically altering the hair can possibly damage it. Although our Raw Virgin hair extensions can handle a coloring process very well, please be cautious.
Once the hair is chemically-altered incorrectly, the cuticle can become damaged and overexposed, causing fraying, breakage, dryness, and tangling. This in turn will affect the overall look and feel of your hair. Chemical damage has no reverse button, and we will not be held liable for any damages.
DOES OUR HAIR SHED?
Minimally, no hair is absolutely perfect. We have reinforced machine wefting, to minimize shedding to nearly none. You may see a few strands here or there while detangling or styling, but nothing troubling or excessive. The most effective way to avoid shedding is by sealing the wefts.
HOW LONG DOES THIS HAIR LAST?
Our 100% Human Hair Extensions and Wigs can last through multiple installs. However, the lifetime of your extensions depends heavily on how they are cared for. On average our customers can use their extensions from 6 to 8 months if cared for properly. Learn more about Caring for your Raw Virgin Cambodian, Malaysian and Burmese Hair Extensions
WHAT DOES CO-WASH HAIR MEAN?
Co-washing simply means washing with conditioner. It is a key task in extending the life of your extensions and keeping them healthy. We recommend a co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs.
When you first receive your extensions, it is important to co-wash the hair, as it has been through Malaysia Hair Imports is a direct factory manufacturers’ that hands, packaging, etc.
Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much of its moisture. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY HAIR?
All virgin hair reacts differently to product and regimens. Please be mindful to stay away from ingredients that can strip your extensions of moisture such as parabens, sulfate, and silicone. These products usually tend to have a high alcohol content which dehydrates the hair follicle of its nutrients.
Heavy oils are also not necessary to care for your extensions as it can weigh down your hair pattern. By rule of thumb, we recommend co-washing your bundles weekly and shampooing bi-weekly to rid your bundles of any excess product. Deep conditioning can be done as needed.
WHAT HAIR PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND I USE?
With no two heads being alike, our customers have a variety of experience with different textures as well as their daily maintenance of their extensions. Over the years we have collected knowledge regarding what works best.
Our customers highly suggest product lines such as Crème of Nature, Carol’s Daughter, Cantu, As I Am, and more. Even though our customers suggest these products, your extensions may not respond in the same manner.
HOW MANY HAIR BUNDLES SHOULD I ORDER?
The key to determining how many bundles to purchase depends on the lengths you are wanting. As all bundles are the same weight (3.3oz), the longer bundles have shorter wefts, and the shorter bundles have longer wefts. For a full sew-in, we recommend 3-4 bundles of hair. For lengths over 18”, we recommend ordering 4-5 bundles of hair.
If you desire an install with a lot of volume, you will need 4-5 bundles or 4 bundles with a closure. A closure is a great addition to your install, as you will have no leave-out. This is considered a full protective style, and none of your hair will be exposed.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO RECEIVE MY PACKAGE?
We have a standard 24-48 hour processing time prior to the shipment of 5-7 business days all orders. This processing timeframe is subject to change due to sales or holidays. Please review our shipping methods to receive an estimated timeframe of received your package.
