Do You Know About Hair Extensions?
Have you bought hair extensions? I sure you have many questions about it .Today's blog will answer somethings you need to know about hair extensions that are the popular hot hair trend.
- CAN I CURL AND STRAIGHTEN HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Yes! Hair extensions that are made with 100% remy human hair can be curled, straightened, blow-dried and styled, just like your own natural hair.
Additionally, we recommend to only use a low heat setting of 120C/250F, as anything higher runs the risk of damaging the hair. While our own hair may be able to handle a high heat setting, our hair is also constantly getting revitalized from the scalp, whereas hair extensions don't get that sort of constant nutrition. Using a low heat setting will prolong the lifespan of your extensions. Better yet, try out heatless way to style your extensions!
- CAN I SLEEP WITH HAIR EXTENSIONS?
We do not recommend sleeping with your hair extensions clipped in, as this could cause excessive tangling, which can be damaging to the extensions as well as your own hair. We recommend to remove your extensions every night before bed.
- CAN I SWIM WITH HAIR EXTENSIONS?
No, we do not recommend swimming with your extensions clipped in or getting them wet (except when washing them). Chlorine from swimming pools, salt from ocean water, and dirt in all bodies of water can be damaging to your hair extensions. Also, swimming with your extensions clipped in may lead to the extensions tangling with your natural hair, which can be damaging.
If you would like to wear your extensions in the water, make sure to tie your hair up to avoid getting them wet.
- CAN I PLAY SPORTS WITH HAIR EXTENSIONS?
We highly do not recommend that you do any physical activity with your extensions clipped in. Not only could the clips cause discomfort to your head with all the extra movement, but there is a high risk of the hair matting or tangling with your own hair due to sweat, moisture, or dirt. This can be damaging to the hair and your extensions may deteriorate faster.
- WHAT PRODUCTS CAN I USE ON HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Since hair extensions do not get consistent nourishment from the scalp like natural hair, it is important to choose the right products to keep your extensions looking and feeling luxurious.
When selecting products for your hair extensions, we recommend to use organic hair products whenever possible. If you are unable to get fully organic hair products, we recommend to at least choose alcohol-free and sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, as these ingredients can dry the hair out, leading to frizziness, matting, or tangling. We recommend to use high quality products specifically formulated for dry and damaged hair, as they will help keep the strands healthy and nourished.
- WHO CAN WEAR HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Just about anyone! Clip-in hair extensions are safe for men, women, and even children to wear of all ethnicities.
For anyone experiencing severe hair loss, however, we recommend to consult a doctor first prior to purchasing clip-in hair extensions to ensure it is safe for you to wear.
