Stitch n Save: Wig Guide

100 Percent Human Hair

"Single drawn Remy" "Double Drawn Non Remy Hair." You'll see it all over wig catalogues and all over human hair advertisements. But rarely do they explain what they mean. It actually took quite a bit of time to figure these terms out.

Firstly, you will usually find these terms when you are dealing with unprocessed hair. When you are dealing with processed hair there are no roots; no cuticles and these terms are not applicable.

Remy: Remy means that all the hair goes in the same direction. In other words if you put your hair into a pony tail and cut above your ponytail you would have a nice chunk of produced remy hair. The root side is all on the top and the non-root side is on the bottom. (note: when cutting your hair for a wig most wig manufactures will only take it if you cut it properly. You have to make your hair into a number of small pony-tails and cut a little above the ponytail so that you are left with an intact ponytail.)

If you would sweep up the strands of hair in a barber shop and then bundle the hair together you would have non remy hair. Some of the root side of the hair would be on top and some would be on bottom.

It is advisable only to buy remy hair which tends to not much less then non-remy.

Single Drawn Remy: So now the hair manufacture has a bunch of nice neat fresh ponytails. How do they proceed. Well if they are producing a single drawn remy, they will trim one of the sides producing a nice even bundles of hair. This process can be used for long wigs- up to 40 inches.

Double Drawn Remy: Even higher quality then single drawn, hair both of the sides are trimmed evenly. Again, remember this is remy hair meaning all the hair goes in the same direction. Wigs with this type of hair are usually no longer then 26 inches.

Double Drawn Non Remy: You should be able to figure this out yourself, but for those of you are just too lazy or too overwhelmed by al this hairy mumble jumble this is where they start off with a mumble jumble of hair- some of the roots in one direction and some in the other- and then both sides are trimmed. Wigs with this type of hair are usually no longer then 26 inches.

Choices of hair will usually be of wide range as the range of natural hair. Straight, curly wavy, and everything in between. Black, brown, blond, and red with many shades and hues in between. Gray wigs are most often synthetic.
