Virgin hair is hair that has never been processed or treated with ANY kind of chemicals. The hair is in its natural state with its cuticles running in the same direction and in tact. You can bleach, dye and process Virgin hair just as you would your own.
Remy (Virgin) Hair:
Remy hair is hair that has all the cuticles running in the same direction. Remy hair differs from Virgin hair mainly in that it has been CHEMICALLY processed for colour or texture, but the cuticle remains intact so the hair will not tangle.

BASIC HAIR CARE TIPS
•YOUR HAIR NEEDS TO BE COWASHED A MINIMUM OF ONCE PER WEEK. (once in 2 weeks for straight/ very loose wave hair)
•You need to keep your hair moisturized. If you do not it will cause drying, tangling, matting and shedding. Oil is not moisture, but it can be used to seal in moisture during deep conditions. Providing moisture is accomplished by using a moisturizing conditioner.
•Shampoo should be used very sparingly since it is known to strip hair of its moisture. Since it is not attached to a scalp there are not oils being deposited consistently. Conditioner can remove sweat and some product build up.
•Never use any kind of bleaching product that is excessively harsh on the hair. Additionally, you should never attempt to perform any bleaching or coloring process on your own. Instead, you should visit your local professional stylist and allow them to undertake the procedure themselves.
•If heat needs to be used to style hair (flat irons etc.), be sure to use leave-in conditioner first, as well as a heat protector. This will help prevent any kind of damage to your hair, such as frizz and dryness. However, you should never use a heat protection product that contains any alcohol, as this will significantly dry out your hair.
•When going to bed be sure to tie your hair down or braid it and use either a silk or satin cap/bonnet to cover your hair before going to bed at night. Never wrap your hair in any kind of cotton material, as this will only absorb oils from your hair that can make it much less manageable. You also should not use any elastic bands since these can cause various amounts of stress.
