Remy Capillus Explains Importance of Cuticles in Hair Extensions


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/15/2016 -- At first glance, it may be difficult to differentiate real human hair extensions that are truly deserving of the name "Remy" from other, lower-quality extensions that may claim the Remy name but not possess the qualifying characteristics. However, there are methods customers can use to determine whether their extensions are genuine Remy. To aid them in their research, Remy Capillus, a manufacturer of real human hair extensions, has shared information on the importance of cuticles in hair extension quality.

A strand of healthy human hair is composed of three layers. The outer layer, called the cuticle, is the most important in terms of indicating hair health. It is responsible for the strength of the hair, protects the rest of the hair from damage, and controls how much water a strand of hair retains, which is responsible for the hair's shine. Remy Capillus advises its customers that high-quality extensions that have been carefully sourced will have strands with intact, monodirectional cuticles, resulting in a lustrous appearance and soft texture.

Some makers of lesser-quality hair extensions, in order to mimic premium Remy, will chemically strip the cuticles from their extensions to create the illusion of a smooth, healthy texture. After a few uses, however, wearers will find that their hair has become tangled or rough. Remy Capillus advises that customers test their extensions by checking for the presence of cuticles, and then testing the direction of cuticles. If hair rubbed between fingers in both directions does not "tease," then the cuticle has been stripped. If the cuticle is present but the hair becomes tangled when brushed in one direction, then the direction of the cuticles is not uniform. Remy Capillus only selects hair with intact cuticles that run in one direction for all of their extensions.
