The first test, therefore, that you can carry out to find out whether the hair claimed to be Virgin Remy hair is correct or not is the color. The virgin Hair will always have the donor’s hair color. The color may range from natural black to browns. However, most often it is medium brown and lighter than the hair designated as #1B that you buy from a store. Another aspect is that the color of the entire bunch of hair is not likely to be uniform. This is because natural highlights (both darker and lighter) of the primary color can be present. Moreover, you will generally find grey hair strands in the package.
The second test that you can carry out to determine if the hair you want to buy is genuine Virgin Remy or not is by looking at the grade and texture of the hair. Virgin Remy will not be extremely straight or silky. Often, it is coarser and has a yaki-like texture, blending and resembling that of colored women. Hair that is not virgin is generally subjected to silicone treatment and chemical straightener coating. This gives hair a silky and straight appearance. You will be able to get a feeling of the coating, if you run your fingers through hair that is not actually virgin hair.
Another test is known as the flame test. Cut off a small sample of the hair which you purchased and place it directly above a small flame such as a cigarette lighter or a candle. Fake synthetic hair is extremely flammable and will produce a big flame when it comes into contact with a lighter, Real Virgin hair is not highly flammable, when it touches a flame it usually produces smoke but not a huge flame as synthetic hair does.
The most important test, however, that you can carry out to identify virgin hair is the wet test. If the hair is not virgin it feels heavy when it becomes wet. On the other hand, virgin hair will retain its wave pattern or natural curl even if it is wet. This is because product build-up and dirt are removed when hair is washed. You must, however, remember that hair that becomes curly or wavy when wetted need not necessarily be virgin Remy hair. Several lines may offer hair that is wet and wavy, but it may not be virgin or Remy.
