Okay so I have spent the last 2 days researching the board and I am still confuse. so can someone please explain the difference between remy hair vs virgin hair vs. remy virgin like I was a 3 yr old.

Remy is the cuticles are intact and all going in the same direction. Virgin means it hasn't been processed. Hair can be remy but processed (and likely will be from a CV). Hair can be virgin (unprocessed) and not be remy.

I guess I kinda understand. But is far as pricing, which is normally more expensive virgin hair or virgin remy?

Virgin remy is normally more expensive. IMO buying any hair that does not have cuticles intact & aligned is a waste of money.

Virgin is expected to be both remy and unprocessed, so they go hand in hand at that point (usually). Virgin will cost you more as it's supposedly in its best form, but I think from a CV you're unlikely to get virgin, absolutely no processing hair. Maybe virgin Chinese straight. But all that wavy, curly, kinky...it's not virgin.

Not true, depending on the quality and how a vendor processed the hair it can last for a while. Several people on the board have constantly reused processed hair. I have blow dried & straightened my wavy processed hair plenty of times & the waves always pop back when I wash. Constantly straightening curly hair regardless of it is virgin or remy runs the risk of relaxing the curl pattern.

I think Goddess Remy would be in the BSS category rather than with the processed hair that many of the ladies order around here. They're both processed, but quite different in quality. Processed hair can last a long time. Some virgin hair can lose its quality. It really just depends on a lot of factors.

I don't believe that any of the hair in the BSS is actually remy. For the most part hair in the BSS is over processed Indian/Chinese hair coated in some kind of silicone to make it look nice for 3 weeks. The processed hair that most members use are from CVs and AVs.
