Human Hair Extensions and Defining Virgin Remy Hair Quality
Have you ever wondered about Virgin Remy hair extensions and what drives quality when it comes to human hair extensions?
Quality is at the heart of everything we do, and we want to share that passion with you. So, let's dive right in and explore the world of hair extension excellence!
What the different hair types mean
Virgin Remy hair extensions: The crème de la crème of hair extensions– silky smooth, long lasting, with unmatched quality, purity and ability to be styled, colored, and treated just like natural hair. The level of care that is required to sort the hair meticulously and carefully is what makes Virgin Remy hair extensions so special. The cuticles of the hair are kept intact and aligned in one direction (think of the single smooth bundle of a ponytail versus a pile of hair scattered on the floor, where the hair would be laying in different directions). Preserving the cuticles and keeping them unidirectional makes the extensions look natural and ensures that the hair is soft, shiny, silky and tangle free. The hair is kept running the same direction from time of hair collection through production, all the way to installation to your scalp.
All our pro methods are made with Virgin Remy quality hair!
Machine Remy hair extensions: Machine Remy hair refers to hair that has been collected and processed using machines. The cuticles in machine-processed hair may not be as intact or aligned as in Virgin Remy hair. Although machine-processed hair is still considered Remy hair, it may require extra care to prevent tangling and maintain its quality and appearance.
New Remy hair extensions: New Remy hair has lost its original directional source. The cuticles are completely removed using an acid bath. Due to chemical treatment, the hair is fragile. Donna Bella does not sell this kind of hair and we don’t recommend wearing it!
Non-Remy hair extensions: Non-Remy hair refers to hair that does not have intact and aligned cuticles. In non-Remy hair, the cuticles may be stripped or not aligned in the same direction. This hair is often collected from various sources and requires additional processing, such as silicone coatings, to enhance its appearance. Non-Remy hair may have a shorter lifespan and be more prone to tangling and matting compared to Remy hair. Thankfully we would never sell this kind of hair and we advise not to use it due to the quality concerns it tends to have.

The importance of ethical sourcing
Ensuring high-quality hair extensions goes beyond just the texture and appearance of the hair. Ethical sourcing plays a vital role in maintaining the integrity of the product and ensuring that fair practices are used throughout the process. At Donna Bella Hair, we understand the importance of responsible sourcing and take pride in our commitment to ethical practices.
We prioritize working with trusted suppliers who adhere to strict standards and engage in fair trade practices. By sourcing hair from reputable and traceable origins, we can ensure that our extensions are obtained through ethical means, respecting the rights and well-being of the donors. We believe that supporting ethical sourcing not only promotes transparency and sustainability but also aligns with our values of providing exceptional quality while making a positive impact in the hair industry.
Quality is not just a buzzword at Donna Bella Hair—it's our guiding principle. We want to educate and empower you to make informed choices that transform your hair in the most extraordinary way. From ordinary to exceptional quality, the difference is clear.
