We have 100% virgin hair, Remy hair, 100% human hair, human hair blend , and synthetic hair. 100% virgin hair is the most expensive hair you can buy and it has the highest quality. It is human donor hair with all the cuticles going in the same direction which hasn’t gone through any chemical or mechanical processing.
Remy hair is also 100% human hair with all the cuticles going in the same direction, but it has been chemically or mechanically processed. It is also high quality hair that will last you for a long time.
100% human hair has not been mixed with synthetic hair, but it has been stripped of its cuticles and might be chemically processed. It will not last as long as 100% virgin or Remy hair.

Synthetic hair has no human hair whatsoever and it’s completely synthetic and this would be considered low quality hair that won’t last for a long time.

*Grade 4A and 5A*
This is lower/medium hair grade. This hair is 100% human hair but it’s not Remy hair and the cuticles will be stripped or won’t go in the same direction. It is also going to be pretty thin and it’s highly likely that it will tangle and mat. For that reason, it won’t last for a long time, probably a couple of months. If you choose to buy this type of hair, make sure you purchase shorter lengths, not longer than 12 inches to avoid as much tangling as you can.

Grade 7A is high quality Remy hair that has all the cuticles intact. It is pretty thick and strong and it will last for up to 18 months. This hair will shed and tangle much less than the other types.
