Raw Hair Vs Virgin Hair- What’s The Difference Between Raw Hair and Virgin Hair?

If you have ever worn hair extensions before, you may have heard of the term “Remy hair”. You may have also heard the term “virgin hair”. But have you ever heard of raw hair? If you don’t know Virgin hair and Raw hair very well you probably can’t tell them apart.

In this blog, we will be discussing the difference between Raw hair and Virgin hair.

What is Raw Hair?

Raw hair is 100% unprocessed hair collected from one donor. Not only has it never been chemically processed but it has never had heat applied to it as well. Unlike virgin hair, it comes in its most natural state. This is the highest quality of hair on the market as it is 100% natural. With fuller, longer-lasting bundles, Raw Hair is not only natural-looking, but it acts just like your own natural hair and it blends well with all hair types. Raw hair is the purest and most natural hair on the market.

Raw Hair features:

  1. The hair comes from the same person or donor
  2. Raw hair is 100% unprocessed Hair
  3. Premium quality
  4. 100% human hair
  5. The cuticle is aligned
  6. Hair that has not been altered in any way by steam or chemical treatment.
  7. There are 3 basic textures: straight, wavy, and curly.

What is Virgin Hair?

Virgin hair is chemically unprocessed human hair, which is collected from a single donor. The virgin hair has not been altered by dyes, perms, bleaches, or harsh washes. All the cuticles are intact and moving in the same direction.

In simple terms, the virgin hair is the type which hasn’t been chemically processed. Since there have been industry alterations over the years, it’s okay to refer to hair that is steamed as virgin hair. You can get different styles of virgin hair by steaming. They include waves, natural straight, curly hair, kinky curly, Malaysian deep wave and more.

The most popular kinds of virgin hair are:

Peruvian – coarser, thicker, durable

Malaysian – heavier, softer, silkier

Brazilian – light, shiny, silky

Indian – easy to style, elastic

This type of hair is extremely popular because you can dye, bleach, cut, and process the hair and treat it as your own.

Virgin Hair features:

  1. 100% human hair
  2. Come from one donor
  3. Premium quality
  4. Not Been Chemically Treated – including dyed, bleached or colored
  5. Not Been Straightened, Curled, ironed, blow-dried, permed, etc
  6. Undamaged hair cuticles

What is the difference between Raw Hair and Virgin Hair?

Virgin hair is steamed to achieve different textures. Raw hair has not been altered in any way by steam or chemical treatment.

Understand that raw hair is all virgin hair but not all the virgin hair makes for raw hair. This is the main difference between virgin hair and raw hair.

Which Raw Hair or Virgin Hair suit me best?

For both types of hair, you can change a variety of styles and colors. When you have to choose between the two, you can consider both the style and the price. Maybe you want a more expensive option (Raw hair), or something more affordable (Virgin hair), while still getting great results. Do you want a rough, natural hair or a virgin hair that offers style, geology, and pattern?
