Common Questions

Common questions about hair.

1. What is Remy Hair?

Remy hair is the highest grade of human hair available on the market. It is collected from the head of a donor in such a manner that the cuticles are not stripped, and are aligned in the same direction from the base to the tip of the hair strand. This hair is collected from a donor while in a ponytail – and does not contain any mix of synthetic fibers. Remy hair does not mat or tangle easily, and has a natural appearance.

2. What is Virgin Hair?

Virgin hair is remy hair that has never been chemically treated at the time of collection. Chemical treatments can refer to perming, bleaching, dyeing or coloring.This hair is collected from a single donor, with the cuticles running in the same direction. Virgin hair will have split ends, and a non-uniform curl pattern. At ehairvietnam.com.

3. What makes VietNamese Hair Unique?

VietNamese hair is versatile, naturally silky and lustrous. It can be obtained in multiple textures – such as straight, wavy or curly, and does not need to undergo harsh chemical treatments to attain a particular style. The diversity in VietNamese hair textures and its naturally dark color makes it a great fit for the hair weaves industry.

4.What is Non-remy Hair?

Non-remy hair is fallen hair - that is collected from various sources such as salons, and door-to-door brush hair collection. This hair collected is subjected to an acid bath, whichcompletely strips the cuticles that are all in different directions during collection. After the acid bath, the hair is dipped in silicone, which makes it lustrous and temporarily “tangle-free”. After a couple of washes, the silicone wears off – causing matting and tangling of the hair. Non-remy hair is cheap hair that does not last long, and is difficult to maintain.

At E-Hair, we strongly recommend the purchase of remy hair – which is comparatively more expensive, but survives the test of longevity, while being easier to maintain.

Since we use only 100% virgin remy VietNam hair in the manufacturing of weaves and extensions, our hair can last as long as 3-4 years with proper maintenance.

5. I noticed that some of the bundles have a slight lighter hair color than other bundles I have ordered previously. I also discovered a few grey hairs present, is this normal?

Absolutely. This is perfectly normal. Please understand that 100% pure Virgin hair is untreated hair. It comes from various donors. Some donors are older than others and vice versa. Each donor will have a different hair curl pattern and hair color ranging anywhere from an off black to a natural brown color, and yes, even a few gray strands here or there. At no time will virgin hair bundles ever look the same because all hair is not donated by the same person. What is always consistent is the raw and natural quality of the hair. The gorgeous texture and gentle blend that it has with your own natural hair.

6. How to tell the difference between human hair and synthetic hair?

Human hair has natural protein,it is easy to tell by burning and smelling, human hair will be ash, which will go away after pinching,human brazilian hair will smell foul when burnning,the human hair will show white smoke. While synthetic hair will be a sticky ball after burning and will show black smoke, morever,human hair may have few gray hair and split end,it is normal and not a quality problem.

7. Will the hair shedding or tangle?

We do not guarantee 100% no tangle, no shedding because like your own hair, the hair can be come tangle due to being dryness, oil & dirty buid-up, salt-water chlorine and not combing  properly (wide toodth comb). Therefore, make sure to wash & apply condition for your hair at least once time after 2-3 times using.

8. Can they be straightened, curled?

Treat the hair as it is your own hair. Use a flat iron / straightener or hot tools. However, as with your own hair, never use hot tools too often, otherwise the hair could be dry and will not last long.

9. Can I color the hair?

Sure. You can color the hair. As a general rule, it is easier to darken the hair than to lighten the hair. If you are not professional, improper dying will ruin the hair. Coloring by yourself will take a risk of not achieving the tone / shade you want. We highly recommend having your hairdresser dye the hair for you to get the desired color.
