Caring for your Extensions-

How many bundles will I need for a sew-in?

The number of bundles needed will vary on upon style, and the individual. 

*If fullness is desired we suggest adding an extra bundle to your order.

How long will my extensions last?

The longevity of our extensions depends on how well the hair is maintained. 

"Remy" or "Full Cuticle Hair" means that the hair has all cuticles healthy, intact and all cuticles flow in the same direction from root to the tip. Typically hair is of "Remy" quality when it has been collected directly from a woman's head and has been cut while held in a ponytail, so none of the strands fall to the floor. Because of this careful collection process, only "Remy" quality hair can guarantee that all cuticles will stay aligned and the hair will be tangle-free hair in its most natural form. True "Remy" hair lasts for a long time, just like one's own natural hair. 

Can I color-treat or bleach my Extensions?

 

Yes, you may color-treat or bleach your Extensions. We strongly suggest that you have a professional color-treat or bleach your extensions.

Should my Extensions be co-washed before installation?

 

Yes, we strongly suggest that all hair is co-washed and air dried before installation to bring the hair to its original luster and curl pattern.

Do I have to seal my wefts?

 

Yes, you should to protect your investment and longevity of your extensions, it will prevent shedding immediately and over time. All hair sheds but sealing will definitely help slow down the process of losing more stands over time. We do not recommend that you use fabric sealers for your hair extensions.

Can I cut the weft?

 

To limit the amount of shedding of your extensions we do not suggest that you cut your weft. If you have to seal your wefts and the cut ends at each cut.

Do’s & Dont’s–

Before installing your virgin hair, conditioner wash (co-wash) hair first with a moisturizing conditioner like Organix Moroccan Argan Oil conditioner.
– Brush and detangle your hair prior to washing with paddle brush or wide-tooth comb.
– Do not cut the wefts or tracks of your virgin hair. This will cause shedding. Your stylist or you should use the fold over method to install the hair. If the wefts must be cut please seal with weft sealant prior to installing.
– Co-wash hair at least once a week. Do not over shampoo your hair, this will cause dryness. Shampoo 1-2 times a month. If your hair feels heavy or oily please use a clarifying shampoo.
– Air dry your virgin hair. Squeeze out excess water and air dry hair.
– When coming hair, gently comb hair with a paddle brush or wide-tooth comb. Begin combing small sections at the ends, working up towards the scalp.
– When styling with heating tools it is very important to use a heat protectant serum or spray that is ALCOHOL FREE. Oil base product and alcohol will fry the hair.

-- It is mandatory that you apply a curl defining/curl control cream while the hair is wet. This way it will stop the hair from frizzing, getting really big & poofy and lock in the wave or curl in the hair. It will give the hair a nice, soft and tamed wet look while its dry. 
– Prior to bedtime, wrap, braid, plait, pin curl or roller set your hair and use a satin/silk cap or scarf.
– Prior to going swimming wash and leave the conditioner on your hair. This will help prevent the salt water and chlorine from drying out your extensions.
– If you bleach, tint, perm, or use extreme heat on hair you risk drying out your hair extensions. This might cause your hair to shed and tangle. We cannot guarantee the longevity of any hair that has been processed or chemically treated. Deep condition hair after chemically treating hair JUST AS YOU WOULD YOUR OWN HAIR! 

 

Note: Remember that hair extensions are not growing from your scalp so they are not getting the natural oils needed from your scalp to remain healthy. Be sure to restore moisture to your hair.

Lace Wig Care and Maintenance

 

Wig Care for all types of human hair wigs

Lace wig care (and caring for all other types of human hair wigs) is key to making sure that your hairpiece looks good and lasts. It may be a human hairwig but it's still human hair and needs to be cared for in the same way. It’s important to remember that only "raw hair" wigs where the entire wig is made from completely unprocessed hair from one single donor (the majority of wig hair texture are achieved from chemical processing to create waves, curls and straight textures) are the longest lasting type of wig.

 

Remy Hair will have undergone processing to achieve texture and color the majority of human hair used by wig makers is from naturally straight hair sources).

Due to the processing of the hair for Remy hair wigs, it’s important to treat your wig well.

 

Traditional Cap Wigs and Lace Wig Care 

Nourishment:

It’s a little known fact but leave-in conditioners actually dry out the hairand make it brittle (as the protein contained in the conditioner absorbs the moisture from the hair).

So as part of your wig care routine it's important to to ensure that the hair on your wig is nourished, like argan oil, coconut oil and almond oil) or a glycerine and water mix (at a rate of 10% glycerine and 90% water) on a daily basis - a light misting is fine, or smoothing frizz and dry ends.

Using an oil that absorbs the hair also nourishes the hair by keeping hair hydrated and smoothing the cuticle so that the hair is kept soft and supple.

Heat Styling:

Frequent heat styling can damage all human hair and so it's an idea to keep the heat styling to a minimum.

Heat damage is a particular risk with curly hair wigs. 

Lighter Coloured Hair and Heat

If you have lighter coloured hair on your lace cap wig or traditional cap wig, it's likely that it will have been dyed (lifted) to this colour using ammonia (unless the hair is from a European source).

Due to this, it's better to refrain from using heat styling tools (including high heat settings on hair dryers); however if you feel that you simply couldn't get by without the odd heated roller, straightener or curling wand then using a thermal protection spray or serum will help reduce any heat damage.

Washing and Conditioning:

Knowing how often you wash the wig as well as knowing the right techniques for washing your wig is essential to good wig care.

Detangle hair prior to washing and to avoid tangling during the washing process (which can lead to shedding), its recommended to use a styrofoam head as this gives you greater control of washing process and reduces the likelihood of tangling; which is essential for maintaining your wig 

 

If you have a long (18" or more), straight textured lace wig, you can use the method above; or if you have a shorter (16" or less) straight wig, your can head for the sink method.

Deep conditioning the hair helps to repair and strengthen the hair and you can use a deep conditioner to allow the protein to penetrate the hair and ensure that it remains as healthy as possible and leave to air dry - once or twice a month should be fine.

Top Tips:

  • Use a low heat setting for heat stylin

  • Use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush to avoid pulling at the hair (this is good practice even for straight textures).

  • Deep condition human hair wigs at least twice a month.

  • Use gentle washing methods for your wig.

  • Keep the hair moisturised daily with oil free sprays or moisturisers without mineral oils (look for moisturisers with plant-derived oils instead).
