Genuine Slavic Hair · Please Read Below

March 2022

At New Image we were horrified angered and saddened by the situation in Ukraine and have now suspended any further purchases of Russian hair extensions at our salon.

BUT!! We have found an alternative supplier of similar quality hair that is genuine Slavic Hair!!! We will of course still have our fabulous European hair that we have always used at New Image.

Like so many others, we stand with Ukraine in calling for the restoration of peace, respect for Ukraine's sovereignty and the protection of its people. We pray for all those affected in this abhorrent war.

Please do contact us if you have any questions regarding our hair – we will be happy to help in any way we can.

Remy Russian Hair Extensions

Why Choose Russian Hair Extensions?

Russian hair extensions, otherwise known as Remy Russian hair extensions, are known to be the highest quality hair extensions on the market. New Image are totally committed to quality in every way, so we decided to source the best possible Russian Remy hair for our clients.

Russian hair is considered to be one of the finest textured hair types available, and anyone who comes into contact with it will confirm this. It is a cut above the rest, and there is no mistaking it. The hair is tangle-resistant, won't shed, and will last for over two years – provided that you look after it, of course!

You might hear several terms that refer to different preparations and treatments of Russian Hair. Here is the lowdown:

Virgin Hair

Virgin hair is simply human hair that is unprocessed with chemicals. It will have been collected from a single hair donor. If it is called virgin hair, it should be Remy hair that has not been subjected to hair dye, perming, bleach or harsh washing. Virgin hair is not automatically Remy hair, of course, and Virgin hair will never be very light blond for this reason.

Russian Hair Extensions

"Double Drawn" hair means that all short lengths have been carefully and laboriously removed, so that only the longest hair remains. This gives a fuller and thicker look to your Russian hair extensions. This is the most expensive hair due to the effort it takes to comb out all of the short hairs. It takes a lot of time to collect the highest quality, longest hairs.

Remy Hair

Remy hair is known as the finest quality available in human hair. This is due to the fact that the hair cuticles are kept intact. Non-Remy extensions are often stripped of the cuticles, but with Remy hair, the cuticles are preserved and aligned all in the same direction. This gives them the most longevity, and the most natural appearance possible.

Why is Russian Remy hair of such high quality?

The Russian diet has a lot to do with the quality of this hair. The area of Russia that it comes from also has something to do with it. The Russian diet is generally rich in vitamins and nutrients, which benefits the hair greatly and helps it to grow long and strong with plenty of volume. The diet is also usually low in sugar, sodium, and unhealthy processed animal fat.

Hair sourced from Uzbekistan or Kazakstan won't be of the same quality as the diet is different. So if your Russian hair is marketed as South Russian, it may still be of decent quality but it should not be as expensive. Genuine Russian Remy hair will come at premium prices that match the quality.
