Why is Hair Texture Important for Extensions?

By Tatiana Montano

The Essential Guide To Choosing Clip-in Hair Extensions: Why Texture Matters

The biggest factor to consider when choosing clip-in hair extensions is the texture of the hair. The biggest giveaway that you are wearing clip-in hair extensions is when you choose a low-quality texture for your extensions. Not only will they get tangled and thin sooner, but they won't enhance your hair in the best way possible.

It is nearly impossible to find superior-quality hair extensions at a very cheap price. It's worth investing in superior-quality extensions to find the right texture. Because it is real human hair, every hair texture is different.

It cannot be manufactured, but it can be carefully selected and prepared, we take pride in selecting the best quality Remy human hair possible for Cashmere Hair Clip-In Hair Extensions.

What is Remy Human Hair?

Remy human hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair. With Remy hair, the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, the hair follicles all go in one single direction. This preserves the hairs' cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. Remy hair is collected in a method in which all hair strands stay aligned in the natural direction as it grew (i.e. holding the hair in a ponytail and cutting), top at top, and ends at ends, to maintain the natural texture pattern and cuticle direction. This reduces friction between the strands thus reducing the tangling in the hair, commonly found in non-Remy or low-quality hair.

Remy hair appears more healthy, soft, and silky. Remy human hair is only lightly processed, and undamaged. Some companies claim to sell 100% Remy Hair but are mixing anywhere between 10-40% Non-Remy hair into their packs. It is said that Remy hair has a cool and silky feeling when you touch it. Non experts probably will not be able to tell the difference by looking at it. After 2 to 3 weeks of wear, when that hair starts to matte up you will know it’s not Remy. Cashmere Hair extensions are always made with the highest quality of Remy Human Hair.

NOTE: It is completely natural for all Human Hair to tangle to some extent, and depending on the texture as compared with your own natural texture, it could cause it to tangle. No human hair is perfect, that is how you know it is human. Hair that doesn't have flaws may be synthetic or at least has a synthetic mix. Synthetic hair will melt when exposed to heat, and may also tangle beyond repair. Cashmere Hair extensions are never made with synthetic hair.

What is double-drawn hair?

Double-drawn hair is hair where the majority of the hair (about 80-90%) is the same length & can come from multiple donors. Time is taken to pick hairs from multiple donors so that the hair is similar lengths throughout the hair extensions. This hair is more expensive than single-drawn hair because it takes much more time to sift through the hair and match up the lengths. Remember, this is 100% Human Hair, it is not perfect (humans are not perfect, neither is their hair). Cashmere Hair is AAA Double Drawn 100% Remy human hair.

What is minimally processed hair?

Minimally processed hair consists of a gentle dyeing process that keeps the integrity of the hair at its finest, giving you gorgeous color and long-lasting hair. Other brands use processes that rapidly dye the hair using heavy acids and chemicals, causing damage to the hair. Instead, our Cashmere process of dyeing is a very slow process, which is the least damaging to hair and gives you the healthiest quality hair allowing your hair extensions to look their best for longer. We take the quality of our products very seriously, and we want you to always be satisfied with your hair extensions and their authenticity. We have our strands laboratory tested to ensure they are 100% Remy human hair and the highest quality available.

We never need to mask the harsh chemical process by using silicone, because we don't use a harsh chemical process. This technique is used to disguise the bad quality of the hair to make it feel silky when you first purchase it. After a few shampoos, you might notice that the coating comes off, and the true nature of the quality is revealed. Cashmere Hair is never silicone coated.

Why is Remy hair more expensive?

Remy human hair is more expensive because it is higher quality hair, they are longer lasting, and the hair is more beautiful. One indicator of Remy quality hair is the price, human hair is expensive, and great hair costs even more. Remy human hair prices are constantly increasing. It will cost more to invest in Remy extensions, the results achieved are far more stunning and long-lasting than by using synthetic or lower-grade hair. 

Remy hair extensions can be styled using heat such as flat irons or curling irons, just like your own hair without immediately damaging the hair. It is wiser to invest in high-quality Remy hair than you can expect from Cashmere Hair because wear time & durability will last longer than other brands.

Indian Remy v. European Remy hair

We use 100% Remy European hair for our Seamless Extensions collection, and we chose this type of hair because it has great texture. It's really high quality, making these really long-lasting. The texture of this hair also blends really well with those of you who have fine or thin hair. It has kind of a silkier, smoother texture to it, and is a bit straighter. This just helps it blend really well and look very natural on those of you with really fine or thin hair. Indian Remy hair takes on a more natural texture for those whose hair takes on a wavy/curly texture. This allows for the hair to easily hold any style and blend seamlessly with any hair type.
