Virgin (PURE) Hair F.A.Q., Our Deluxe Hair Line Collection
What is virgin hair?
Virgin hair is hair that has never been chemically processed or altered in any way and therefore has intact cuticles. The hair cuticle is the outermost part of the hair shaft and acts as a protective barrier. Processing includes coloring, bleaching, or using any substance that changes the structure of the hair cuticle or the hair’s inner layers. Hair can be styled using moisture and low temperature techniques and still be considered virgin hair.
Virgin hair looks healthier and shinier, and feels softer and lasts longer. Virgin hair is perfect for coloring, perming, or straightening, without losing any of its natural vitality.
Marquesa offers a wide selection of 100% human virgin Remy hair of different types and textures.
What is Remy hair?
The term Remy is used to describe hair that has intact outer cuticle layers, aligned in the same downward direction in all hair strands. Because all the cuticles are properly aligned, there is minimal friction between hair strands, and the hair is resistant to tangles and mats. For this same reason, Remy hair is supple and light and behaves exactly like your own hair in terms of natural wave, body, movement, and versatility. Remy hair can be virgin if it is not processed or altered in any way, or it can be colored and still remain Remy. Marquesa ONLY uses Virgin Remy hair which is considered the highest quality of human hair used for extensions and wigs.
Marquesa offers a wide selection of virgin Remy and colored Remy hair of different types and textures.

Virgin Russian Hair: BEST QUALITY
Our Virgin Russian hair is undoubtedly the finest hair in the world. This is the ‘creme-de-la-creme’ of hair – the most exclusive type of hair in the market. Genetic and climatic factors contribute to this hair being the most beautiful hair in the world. It is incredibly soft and shiny, and when you feel it, it can only be described as silk. If you only want the very best, then this hair is the ultimate. The hair is collected by taking raw ponytail cuttings, ensuring that the cuticles of the hair are correctly aligned. The hair comes from the Cold Siberian regions and Northern territories of Russia and remains in its raw, purist state – it has never been coloured or chemically treated in any way. All the colours are natural and it is available straight or naturally wavy. This hair is rare but very sought after. Very few hair companies use it because genuine Russian hair is extremely difficult to source and very expensive to sell.
Why should I use virgin Remy hair when hair from beauty supply stores is cheaper?
Most hair from beauty supply stores is not virgin or Remy, despite being marketed as such. Non-Remy hair needs to be chemically treated to avoid tangling. This treatment involves an acid bath, after which the hair is coated with silicone to make it shiny and tangle free. This chemically treated hair will lose its luster and become dull, stiff, and dry after a few washes and weeks of wear.
Even if this hair is less expensive, you will have to replace it more often, and you will end up spending more money in the long run.
Real virgin Remy hair, however, has never been processed. Remy means all cuticles are intact and aligned in the same direction, making it tangle free. Virgin Remy hair looks and behaves like your own natural hair and blends beautifully with your own hair. Also, if you take care of this hair, just as you do your own hair, it will last a year or more.
Can my new virgin Remy hair be colored?
Virgin hair has never been chemically processed or altered in any way and can therefore handle coloring very well. We do not recommend recoloring our colored Remy hair because it has already been dyed. Double coloring the hair may lead to premature shedding and dryness. You can select one of the 63 custom colors offered in our Colored Remy hair collection or order our Virgin Remy hair and have a stylist custom color your hair.
What color is the virgin Remy hair?
Our virgin natural hair comes in Natural off Black, which is slightly lighter than a 1B (as reference) in color and darker than a 3 (as Reference). Because our virgin hair is completely natural, we can’t guarantee a specific shade. For a specific color you should order from our colored Remy collection.
See our available colors in the Chart Section.
Is there anything else I should know about your VIRGIN hair?
Marquesa Hair is virgin Remy hair. Each bundle comes from a single person and is completely natural and unprocessed.
Our virgin hair has a natural texture, varying from straight to deeply curly, including all degrees of wavy textures in between. Texture availability may vary depending on the type of hair. Please refer to our Hair Texture Chart for details.
Our hair is completely virgin and unprocessed. Washing and conditioning with high-quality products will bring out its natural luster and beauty. We recommend using protein-rich shampoo and conditioner for the first washing. The proteins in your product will nourish the hair, making it gorgeous and vibrant.
Because virgin hair is never colored and is sold in its natural state, there may be slight variations in color between bundles. For the same reason, there might be minor variations in textures between bundles, whether the hair is straight, wavy, or curly. Once treated properly, these textures will be more defined and beautiful.
Unlike hair from beauty supply stores, our virgin hair is not artificially enhanced by chemicals or silicone just to make it look pretty in the package only to have it break down after a few washes.
