1. Will clip-in hair extensions damage my hair?

No, providing you follow our instructions, it is very important they are applied and removed properly and should not be left in when sleeping.

2. Can I keep using my clip-in hair extensions time after time?

Yes you can just make sure you follow our instructions about applying and removing.

3. Can I keep my clip-in hair extensions in my hair over night?

No, this is not advisable at all. The clips used to apply your new hair extensions are not safe to leave in your hair whilst sleeping. This could also be quite uncomfortable for you.

4. Can I cut my clip-in hair extensions?

Yes you can but it is advisable to ask your hairdresser to do this for you, your hair dresser is skilled in cutting hair and clip-in hair extensions require the same skill as cutting your own natural hair.

5. Can I wash my clip-in hair extensions?

Yes you can but not whilst attached to your hair, please remove the clips first and then wash and condition as normal.

6. Can I straighten my clip-in hair extensions using straightening irons or blow-dry them with a round brush?

Yes you can. It is important to do this with the clip-in extensions not attached to your hair. Ask a friend to help hold each clip-in extension whilst you straighten the hair using either straightening irons when dry or blow drying with a round brush when damp.
The reason why it is important not to do this whilst your extensions are in your hair is because clip-in extensions are not the same as professionally applied hair extensions. They are applied to less of your hair than the equivalent amount of hair weight with professionally applied extensions. In short, your hair is supporting more weight using clip-in hair extensions. This is perfectly safe providing you follow the instructions.

This is really is down to you, wavy is best unless you hair is dead straight, or if you constantly straighten your hair and do not like the slightly wavy look.

Yes you can. Any products that are suitable for human or synthetic hair will be compatible with your clip-in extensions.

Questions and answers on hair extensions

1. What Are Hair Extensions?

Many people do not know exactly what hair extensions are. Hair extensions are simply strands of synthetic or human hair are weaved, braided, or glued to your own natural hair.

They can be any color, texture or length desired. Many women add hair extensions to provide a hairstyle that is popular or will enhance their personal appearance. Many popular TV stars often wears extensions for a quick change hairstyle.

2. Is it true that it's easy to apply micro loop hair extensions?

Micro Loop and Micro Ring hair extensionsare indeed the same thing. The terms refer to a relatively new attachment mechanism for hair extensions that involves a cylindrical base from which a strand of hair extensions hangs. This strand also includes a slim plastic loop that is used to guide the natural hair upon which the extension will be secured through the cylindrical base.

The individual applying the extensions determines the pattern for application and parts the hair in a horizontal line clipping the hair above this line out of the way. A thin strand of the recipient's hair is gathered from a point along the lower half of the part and fed through the loop at the top of the extension. The bottom ends of the plastic loop are then pulled downward, drawing the recipient's hair strand through the connector and the connector is slid upward toward the scalp.

The connector is positioned near enough to the scalp to provide natural looking results without putting added stress on the hair at the scalp area (aside from the weight of the extension hair). Once in place, the connector is crimped onto the recipient's hair strand securing the extension in place. This process is repeated until the desired number of extensions are applied to give the results that are wanted.

3. What is remy hair?

Remy hair is a term that refers to human hairthat has been harvested from the scalp in such a manner as to keep the cuticle pointed in the same direction as the hairs next to it. In other common hair-harvesting methods for wig and extension making, the hair is simply shorn from the head and bagged up with no regard for the way the cuticle layers of the hair shafts are aligned.

Remy hair is gathered from the head of donors/producers in such a way as to keep the hair properly aligned in relation to its neighboring hairs. This means the hair remains softer and silkier, and is useful in producing higher-quality wigs, extensions and hair pieces.

4. What should I do with my extensions when I swim?

The biggest issue most swimmers have comes from the smell of chlorinefrom the pool water and potential discoloration and texture changes caused by copper deposits in the hair from the pool water. My initial thought is to suggest that you purchase a swim cap and use petroleum jelly around the hairline to create a water-resistant seal.

However, that works only as a protective measure against much of the stresses caused by chlorinated water. Another key factor is the need for a style that will survive well in going repeatedly in and out of a chlorinated environment. To that end, I think that a braidedstyle would be a good suggestion. It would provide a style that won't require a lot of maintenance after swimming sessions and will look stylish.

5. How many micro ring extensions do I need?

Generally a pack of 100 will be sufficient for finer hair. However, you may be better to choose 150-200 extensions if: your hair is thick, you have heavy layers or short hair.

6. Are human hair extensions better, and why?

Yes, because it behaves like your own hair. Human hair extensions are better because they create a more natural look and effect. This means our extensionscan be professionally colored, permed, tonged, straightened and blow-dried.

7. What are pre-bonded hair extension?

Pre-bonded hair extensions are pieces of hair, real or synthetic, that have a bonding agent pre-applied at one tip. The extensions are used to increase the length and fullness of a person's natural hair and can be cut and styled just like real hair. There are several types of pre-bonded hair extensions, such as nail tip, rare remy nail tip, and stick tip. Each type comes in a variety of colors and textures.

8. How to apply nail tip hair extensions?

Nail tip pre-bonded hair extensions are also called U-tip extensions. During the manufacturing process, bonding glue is placed at one end of the extension. A hair stylist attaches the glued tip of the extension to a client´s hair with a professional heat connector clamp. This clamp resembles a thin hair straightening tool and has a built in lip to place the glue tip into. The hair stylist squeezes the top and bottom sections of the heat connector clamp together and applies pressure to melt the glue, bonding the client´s natural hair to the extension.

9. Can they be straightened, curled or tongued?

Yes, simply because it´s real human hair you can straighten and curl the hair. This actually is a test in itself to know if you are not being sold a synthetic product.

10. Can I color the hair?

Yes. The hair can be colored. As a general rule it is easier to darken the hair than to lighten the hair. But blonde hair has been bleached more so more caution must be taken. Always use a good quality hair dye and test a small sample first.

11. Will the hair micro ring or fusion hair extensions damage my own hair?

Whilst the actual extensions will not damage your own hair, you do need to be more cautious when brushing your hair. It is important not to pull to heavily on your extensions as this may cause your own hair to break. To avoid the need to brush your hair heavily, always brush your extensions as soon as you get out of the shower. This will help you avoid minor tangles.
