Yaki, virgin and Remi hair are two of the most widely used terms when it comes to hair extensions. If this is your first time purchasing hair, you’re probably wondering which hair you should buy? Hopefully, this blog will help you in gaining a better understanding of these two popular terms.
While Remy hair refers to a variety of hair used for making extensions, Yaki refers to hair texture. Yaki hair could be Remy as well as non-Remy hair. Remy hair refers to hairs extracted from a single donor in a way that their cuticles remain non-damaged. Non-Remy hair refers to strands that are extracted from multiple donors and the cuticles are usually not intact. Obviously, non-Remy hairs are inferior varieties as compared to Remy hair. Both Remy as well as non-Remy hair could be virgin as well as non-virgin. Virgin hair is unprocessed i.e. not treated chemically. Non-virgin hair is processed and has been subjected to chemicals, whether it is to change their color, shine, or texture. When the texture is changed to resemble afro-Caribbean hair, it is known as Yaki Hair.
Yaki hair is defined as a hair texture that looks and feels like Afro-Caribbean hair. The hair is much thicker and darker in color. The great thing about this lovely hair is that it’s widely available in different textures such as the following.
