There are three types of hair
Virgin Hair (Full Cuticle-naturally)
Remy Hair (Full Cuticle-naturally)
Non-Remy Hair (Cuticle Free by chemically treatment))
Only Non-Remy hairs are cuticle free hair. Why? Because Non-Remy Hair comes in 2 forms:
Multi-directional Cuticles – When the cuticles in the machine weft hair or Bulk Remy hair points in the different direction then the hair is called Non-Remy Hair. There is no advantage to non-Remy hair, there are only disadvantages. The main one being the hair will tangle a lot, as the cuticle of the hair will be facing the comb, repeating combing will open up cuticles and make the hair worst.
The cuticle of this kind of hair is removed using an acid wash process. This hair is cheaper than the Remy Hair.
Since the cuticle is removed, the hair becomes lifeless, so to give it shine and softness it is given a chemical treatment and coated using Silicone based coat (akin to waxing your car paint). But guess what, once the coat wears off the hair has to be thrown as it is no longer wearable. Remember, especially while buying hair, the more lustrous/shiny the hair looks, you may be taken for a ride.
