What Are Remy Human Hair Wigs?
Remy wigs are 100% human hair wigs that are known for their high quality feel and appearance. They are different from regular human hair wigs because the method of collecting the hair and constructing the wig is more specific and careful. The human hair used in remy wigs is left untreated, meaning that the cuticles are not stripped of their natural protective coating, and the strands are not processed using silicone to unnaturally smooth the follicles.
The hair strands are also kept in the same direction that they were naturally grown, resulting in the smooth, natural look of remy wigs. Although this process is more labor-intensive, the end result is a high quality hair piece that is much more resistant to shedding, tangles, matting, brittleness and general degeneration.
These wigs are a great option of human hair wigs for white women that are looking for a very natural looking hair style. We offer several other types of wigs at different price points, as well as human hair wigs for black women - all from our favorite high quality brands.

Remy wigs are made of the highest quality of hair, and will last a long time with the proper care.

Why are Remy Human Hair Wigs so Expensive?
At first, the price of a remy human hair wig for white woman may seem shocking — especially compared to a synthetic or regular human hair wig. What accounts for the price hike? Simply put, remy wigs are the best. Here’s why:
In-tact cuticles. Each strand of hair for remy wigs is carefully gathered so that the cuticle — the outside, water-resistant layer — remains intact. Remy wigs appear so highly realistic because the integrity of the strand is maintained.
Healthy strands. The hair collected for remy wigs is healthy and shiny. We don’t need to explain why that’s a pro when it comes to white girl wigs (or any kind of wig, for that matter).
Lightly processed. While the strands in regular human hair wigs are often dipped in silicone to create a faux sense of shine, remy human hair is chosen for its high quality from the get-go, which means minimal processing is required — so your remy wig will look the same, for longer.
Exact craftsmanship. Each strand of a remy hair wig is positioned in the same direction that it first grew. This reduces the amount of matting and tangling you’ll experience when wearing and caring for your remy human hair wig, and also creates a luscious, sought-after drape.
Long-lasting. While synthetic hair wigs may only last for 3-4 months, remy human hair wigs can last for at least a year in fantastic condition, if cared for properly.
Is a Remy Human Hair Wig Worth It?
We recommend remy human hair wigs for experienced wig wearers who want the most realistic appearance possible.
There’s no doubt that remy human hair wigs for white women are an investment, rather than an accessory. Here are three questions to ask yourself when determining whether a remy human hair wig is right for you:
Do I want my wig to feel like my regular head of hair? Many women appreciate the fact that a remy human hair wig feels, moves and drapes just like their natural locks. If that’s a top priority for you, then a remy wig might be worth it.
How long am I planning on wearing the wig? Remy human hair wigs are designed for long term wear — with the proper maintenance, they’ll look great for a year or more. But if you’re only looking for the occasional switch-up, you might be just as satisfied with a synthetic or regular human hair wig.
Do I want to be able to heat style my wig? Loathe to give up your curling iron or straightener? Remy human hair wigs for white women — and black women — can be heat styled on those days when you’re in need of a fresh perspective. But if you’re a grab-and-go kinda gal, a remy human hair wig may not be as essential.
How much maintenance am I prepared to put into my wig? Synthetic wigs are typically easier to take care of and less work overall. While synthetic wigs hold their preordained shape easily, human hair wigs are more likely to need styling and sprucing up from time to time.
Remy human hair wigs for Caucasion women, African American women and women of all ethnicities can be a wonderful blessing, especially in times of illness, because they lends the most authentic look and feel like regular hair. Still, it’s smart to weigh all your options evenly before making the investment.
How to Store Your Remy Human Hair Wig
Since remy human hair wigs are extra-delicate, due to their construction, proper storage is of pinnacle importance.
Here’s how to store your remy human hair wigs for white women, black women and every color in-between:
Rest it on a wig stand. A proper wig stand will help maintain the original style and shape of your wig, and will keep matting and tangles at bay while your wig is out of commission.
Avoid direct sunlight. Too much sun can cause strands to become dull and more prone to breakage. Keep your remy human hair wig in a cool, dry place to help maintain its original luster.
Most of all, remember not to wear your remy human hair wig while sleeping, as this can result in matted or broken strands.
