A few months ago I decided to do an experiment. I wanted to test a few brands of store bought Remy hair. I wanted to do this to see if people are really getting what they pay for with this hair.
I began my quest at the local beauty supply store. I was surprised to see many, many more brands of Remy hair than there was just a few months before.
I chose a brand that I had heard good things about. Instead of doing my own hair, I went and had my hair sewn in.
A lot of you that follow me on Twitter or Facebook know I'm a fitness fanatic! I work out 6 days a week, so I'm always either wearing braids or some sort of weave.
This also means I have to wash my hair a few times a week with the weave or braids in. This time was no different.
The first few washes and conditions were great! I had no issues at all with the hair, but I was starting to notice after about 2 weeks that the hair was starting become more difficult to manage.
I was on my way back from the gym and had to stop by Walmart. You always run into somebody you know at Walmart, and this time was no different.
I ran into a friend I hadn't seen in years! She was very well known for her honesty. As soon as she saw me she said in a low voice, “Girl, is that a birds nest or your weave?”
We both cracked up laughing and she said, “That's not like you. What's up with your hair?” I explained to her my experiment and she quickly said, “Well I'm declaring this over! Get that fixed now!”
As funny as that story is, it's true. My hair was a hot mess! Here's why, real Remy hair should be true virgin unprocessed hair.
The hair that I was wearing may have been called Remy hair, but it certainly was not. The “Remy” hair I was wearing had a silicone coating on it.
Once I washed the hair a few times, that coat wore off and caused severe tangling. I'm also sure that the cuticles were not all aligned. Miss-matched cuticles cause severe matting and tangling.
Real Remy hair has unidirectional cuticle alignment, absolutely no chemicals, and no color added. It is true virgin hair.
I have searched high and low to find something that met all of the criteria I just mentioned and that's why I started Vellusia.
This is my line of Remy Hair that I personally wear. In fact, I believe in Vellusia so much that I have a “Buy It, Wear It, Love It, or Send It Back” guarantee!
It's simple, I actually allow you to buy our Remy hair, wear it, and if you don't love it, you can send it back. Even after you've worn it!
