With the explosion in demand for remy hair extensions, there has been an explosion in suppliers claiming they are supplying 100% remy human hair. So, how do you make sure that which supplier offer high quality hair extensions? Generally speaking, it is non-sense to believe in the saying coming from suppliers that they provide remy hair extensions at a very low price, because of the price-determining mechanism of supply and demand. Besides, remy hair which is supplied from either Brazil or Europe is more expensive than the others, because the former is of higher quality.

However, if you are looking for semi-permanent solution that can be kept for several months, sewn in wefts, micro loop or fusion hair extensions are recommended.
