Mikel Younan chooses to utilize only and exclusively remy quality hair. This quality lets the hair cuticle be preserved, keeping hair scales all turned in the same direction. This reduces chance that the hair will easily knot itself and confers an extreme pleasantness to the touch and more fluency to the brush.

In order to get a similar outcome, those who do not use the remy quality destroy the hair scales with very strong acids, using decidedly aggressive silicones and dyes. This decomposes all hair pigment (pheomelanin). The outcome of all this stress immediately provokes, after the first washes, hair ruffling and knotting. The consequence is loss of all its brightness, softness and fluidity.
