Virgin hair sheds off more than Remy hair as they are handmade and the wefts are not tied that firmly but double tied virgin hair shed less. There could be a number of reasons for the hair to shed or be damaged in different ways.
It is not very unusual to see Remy human hair tangled. It happens when you tie your wet hair or sleep with damp hair. Tangling can cause your hair to break more. The raised cuticles twist more into each other and result in tangles which causes hair breakage.

Dry and frizzy hair might be the reason for more tangle. To keep your hair moisturized, use a good amount of suitable conditioner.
