Hair Extensions FAQ
How long does my own hair need to be to have extensions?
For best results, we recommend that your own hair is at least 4-5 inches long.
What is meant by the term ‘virgin hair’?
When hair is described as ‘virgin’, it means that it’s completely unprocessed, free of any hair colour or chemicals, retaining all the cuticles, and in its original healthy state.
What is meant by the term ‘Remy hair’?
‘Remy’ hair extensions guarantee that all the hair’s cuticles remain in the same direction throughout the entire process.
How long will my hair extensions last?
You can wear your hair extensions for a maximum of three months before they will need to be refitted.
Can the extensions damage my natural hair?
Damage only if the application is poor or incorrect, or if the correct aftercare advice hasn’t.
Can I go swimming?
Before going swimming, we recommended that you braid your hair or pull it up into a ponytail to keep it from tangling. It’s best to wash your hair after swimming.
Why is there shedding when I remove my hair extensions?
Hair sheds naturally on a daily basis. It’s normal to loose up to 100 hairs a day. Hair extensions don’t stop this entirely natural process. The hairs that are shed over a period of time become trapped in the links and released when the extensions are removed.
Can I reuse the hair extensions after they have been removed?
As long as the hair has been well-maintained, it can be re-tipped and applied again many times.
Why do I need to go to maintenance appointments?
Naturally over time your own hair will grow, so there will be some root growth that can be solved by keeping up with maintenance we will remove the extensions and re-apply them further up at the roots, meaning that they will stay looking natural.
Can I wash my hair every day with hair extensions?
If you have very oily hair then we would recommend washing your hair extensions every day to keep your bonds in good condition. However, our clients who do not have oily hair usually find they don’t need to wash their hair as frequently as the extra volume keeps their hair looking better for longer.
Can I use heated tools on my hair extensions?
Hair Extensions are 100% human hair and can be styled exactly like your own natural hair. We recommend applying a heat protectant spray prior to using styling tools such as blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons, and etc. to maintain the quality of your Hair Extensions. We also advise a lower heat setting when using styling tools to prolong the life of the hair. Lastly, make sure to avoid direct heat or contact on the application areas via bead/tape/bond to help ensure the longevity of the installation.
Do I need to come for colour match before my appointment?
Better to come before but we normally keep all the colours in stock.
I have short hair can I get very long hair extensions?
No you can't have very long but you can you maximum 16 inches hair extensions.
What does it mean half head hair extensions?
The half head is just for volume you can't get the length.
