What is the difference between Processed Remy vs Unprocessed Virgin Remy?
Processed Remy: This hair has been dyed and processed with keratin treatment to create a silky coating and texture.
Unprocessed Virgin Remy: Hair has been thoroughly cleansed and carefully selected to provide the best hair possible.
Individual colors and textures may vary because it remains in its natural form.
What is the correct method to dye the hair to achieve desired color?
- There are two different types of hair dye that one can use. There is a permanent color and a semi-permanent color. The differences between these two are that permanent color lasts longer than semi-permanent color.
- Permanent color penetrates through the cortex of the hair fiber creating a longer lasting dye. However, colors such as red, burgundy, and purple will fade away even with the use of a permanent dye. Semi-permanent color only coats the outer layer of the hair which lightens the color with each wash.
Below are some examples as to why you may not be achieving the desired color:
- Dye Mixture — The dye mixture and peroxide must be mixed together. However, color may not be visible if you only use one or the other, or when the two formulas are not a match.
- Color #5 is used by hair stylists but it is different from weave and wig colors. When dyeing #5 and #8 to a lighter brown, use volume 40 bleach. Various hair types and colors also have specific bleach products that are available as well.
What type of bleach should I use?
- Depending on the original hair color and the lighter color you want to achieve, it is recommended to use volume 10~volume 40 (3%-12%) bleach. The higher the volume of peroxide, the lighter the hair will become.
Why did the curls/waves in the hair become loose after washing?
- We suggest using natural hair products to ensure that the curls and waves will last.
- Unprocessed wavy and curly hair do not have any perms or chemicals. If extra curls or waves are desired, use a cold rod to enhance the hair. Varying thickness in the cold rod will result in different wave and curl patterns.
Am I able to use relaxers or perm in the hair?
- Relaxers and perms can be used for all hair. However, after long periods of use, it can cause shedding and demage to the hair fibers.
Are there any chemicals to avoid with natural hair?
- Bleaching, dyeing, relaxing, and perms are all chemicals that alter the natural state of hair. Hair products containing alcohol, petroleum, mineral oil, and sulfur should be avoided.
- Using natural essential moisture retention shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in conditioner is highly recommended. These products contain natural butter and organic oils to soften and hydrate the hair.
Will heating tools damage the hair? What is the correct method?
- Before using a flat or curling iron, apply a thermal heat protectant on the hair. Like bleaching or adding chemicals, heating tools can also cause damage to the hair fibers.
- Using the correct temperature is very important when applying heat to hair. Do not exceed 400F for Brazilian Natural Hair.
How do you properly brush the hair to prevent shedding?
- Weaving hair is more likely to shed if you brush too often.
- Instead of using a brush, use your fingers and gently run through hair to untangle. If you must use a brush, hold onto the weft, and brush from bottom up gently in one direction.
