Russian Remy Hair Extensions

Russian remy hair extensions have long monopolised the world of hair extensions. In fact, remy hair is the most popular for clip in human hair extensions, having grown incrementally in favour over the last decade. Unfortunately, the definition of what remy hair actually is has become an ambiguous topic. But fear not – here at Belong Hair, we’re here to untangle the facts from the myths.

Russian Remy Hair Extensions


What is remy hair?
Remy hair is human hair that is collected and bundled together so that the cuticles are intact and lay in the same direction – that is, from root to tip – from the moment the hair is cut from the donor, until it reaches the recipient of the human hair extensions. The hair cuticles run from the base of the scalp to the tip of hair strand, vertically.
There are two types of remy hair. Double drawn remy hair is hand collected, and nearly 100% of the strands are of the same length. Single drawn remy hair is hair used for human hair extensions that is collected from one donor, with short and long hairs collected into the bundle. Double drawn remy hair is considered to be grade 7A, where single drawn remy hair is considered to be 6A grade human hair extension hair.

The main attraction for remy hair is that is always natural human hair, and is not mixed with any synthetic hair or fibres.
There are many vendors of human hair extensions online who claim that their extensions are made from remy hair, when in fact they are not. The main clue as to whether the hair is genuinely remy hair is that it is extremely smooth and soft for the lifespan of the weave. Remy hair has often been compared to the texture of silk. Russian Remy Hair Extensions should not tangle as easily, as the cuticles are running in the same direction, eliminating knotting and sticking. Genuine remy human hair extensions can be coloured and styled, and, with the proper care, can last up to 2 years or longer.

How To Choose Which Hair Extension Is Right For Your

Ever wanted to find out which hair extension are right for you? Choose real hair extensions over synthetic as they’re more durable with washing and styling.


Pre-bonded hair extensions

These are attached to the hair by keratin bonds at the tip of the hair extension which are attached with a little hot tool. These are the most popular and look great, but they do require upkeep and regular salon appointments for hair maintenance. As well as that, you need to avoid putting conditioners, heated appliances near the connection, this will weaken the bond and potentially lead to your extensions coming out much earlier.

For maximum duration with this system, remember to condition only the lengths gently. If you’re blow-drying, dry the lengths first, then tip your head forward to dry your real hair.

Durability: 3 months, if looked after would last 4 – 5 months

You can find quality remy/russain hair extensions here


Tape In Hair Extensions 

Tape extensions have had a bad reputation recently, this is because people use words like DAMAGING and MATTING when they’re mentioned.

If properly applied and cared for and made with good quality hair, are a good choice especially when using High quality Russian hair extensions.

They are connected by wide bonds that look like two bits of Sellotape. Your own hair is placed between them and they are clamped around the strands. The wide, rather than skinny bonds. They’re excellent and if you look after them properly they’ll last for ages.

Durability: 6 month if looked after properly.


Weave Hair Extensions

Weave extensions are ideal for curly or thick hair that’s able to handle them. They’re applied by being sewn into a tightly-braided section of the client’s own, natural hair.

These extensions require upkeep and salon visits are advised every six weeks. This will ensure the section where it’s sewn is in kept at a high standard as these extensions are woven into the client’s own hair, the stylist will also want to assess if they need to be adjusted.

Durability: 6 to 8 weeks to a salon


Loop Ring Extensions

This is a hugely popular hair extensions. They’re pretty much damage-free as there’s no glue, no heat, no tape and no sewing. They can be purchase here ! The connections are durable , not uncomfortable and can apply conditioner without a care!

These are probably the best option if you want to be able to dye your hair extensions, and use lots of products or heat-styling appliances.

The Colours

Super Dark Brown

One of the colours you can expect to see a lot throughout of 2017 is the very dark and rich brown. This colour, almost resembling black, is taking over from the lighter chocolate and caramel brown. However, if you don’t want to go all dark, the natural brown and caramel are still very cool.


In 2017 we are introduced to yet another of these funny sounding cool hair colour trends, namely ‘bronde’. This colour is, as the name suggests, a mix between dark blonde and light brown. It’s a dark, golden blonde becoming lighter towards the ends. The feature of this colour is that in some lights it will look blonde, while in others it will look brown.

Flipped Hair and Side Parting

The High Ponytail

The cool and sporty high ponytail is re-entering the fashion scene. This hairstyle is very simple and not time consuming to make. If you think this is a boring look, you’re wrong!

5 Tips for Wearing Hair Extensions

This blog will cover 5 Tips for Wearing Hair Extensions, Hope you enjoy and share!

  1. Buy a Hair Weft – A hair weft is a section of hair which can be either synthetic or real that is sewn together on top. Buy it from Belong Hair Store here.
    When you have purchased it take you hair to your local specialist and get them to sew a few clips onto the top of the hair weft. This will make sure you can secure it onto your head. Also, be sure to buy a longer length so you’re not paying for extra hair as this can be a bit pricey
  2. Put your hair extensions in upside down (my personal favourite) – If you’re planning on wearing your hair up and want to add more volume, place the clip-in upside down against your roots making sure it is underneath so no one can see. That way you will ensure that the hair extension is facing in the correct direction. To pull off this look off, take the end of a teasing comb and section your hair into a top and bottom layer then clip the top section up. Tease the spots near the root where the clips will go and place the hair extension in. Finally, continue pulling your hair up into the look you want.
  3. Get a professional to cut your hair extensions – You can buy quality and value for money hair extensions, like our 3A Standard Clip In Hair extension Range From here, and have your stylist cut them for your requirements. They can also walk you through on how to put them in properly, so when you do it, it will look spot on.
  4. Get Help From Sponge Rollers – If you’re using a synthetic hair extension and your hair is naturally curly or wavy firstly dampen the strands with water the night before you plan on wearing them and let them dry naturally . As they are drying, take a large sponge roller roll the hair up into them, and leave the curlers in overnight. Anytime you’re changing the texture of hair, even if it’s synthetic, you have to wet the hair.
  5. Make Your Real Hair Match – If you have natural straight hair and want to wear a synthetic extension, add a little shine serum, like Pauls hair and beauty Here at £5.99 to your hair before applying the faux strands. This will help your real hair match the sheen of the extensions. If you have human hair extensions, even better! you can do whatever you do to your own hair and the faux strands, such as flat iron them and add shine spray.

What Are u-Tip/Nail Tip/Pre Bonded Hair Extensions?

Here we shall take a look at the terminology of utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extensions to help you understand more clearly what they mean.  Making choosing your hair extensions a much easier experience.


What does utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extension even mean?

The terms utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extension are often used to describe the same thing, which can be quite confusing.  The keratin glue is shaped in a “u” or “nail” type structure to make it easier to melt against the hair to form something called a bond.  Other names of this style of tip is “flat tip” or “v tip”, which again is the exact same type of fitting.  The only different terminology listed above is “pre bonded”.


What does pre bonded Hair Extensions mean?

The term pre bonded can be interpreted differently as it can be associated with other types of hair extensions. The term pre bonded could be used to not only describe utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extensions but also stick and nano tip as these are also pre bonded and not sold as individual hair. So before asking a professional be sure to mention the type of hair extensions you are look for.
