WHILE MANY PEOPLE choose to pay down on what are considered necessities, some women make a deposit on their Virgin Remy Hair extensions which they say are worth the investment.
Known to many as Remy/Remi, it is 100 per cent human and is referred to as cuticle hair because once removed from the head of its donor, the cuticle, which protects the hair from damage, is still intact.
These hair extensions can be reused continuously for a minimum of a year because, according to people marketing or using it, it’s “pretty much your own hair” which you wash, condition, maintain and style as you desire.
The hair, which is sold in bundles, has a range of lengths from 12 to 30 inches which can vary in price from $150 to about $450 per bundle, with the typical female wearing about three bundles at a time. Some women spend between $500 and $1 000 to buy and install their extensions and as a result sometimes have to pay on a weekly basis, with a “layaway plan” which most suppliers offer.
The SATURDAY SUN spoke to several suppliers in Barbados, all of whom are online-based and sell all types, lengths and textures of the Virgin Remy Hair ranging from Indian, Malaysian and Brazilian to Russian and even Filipino.
