Can I Use Heat Styling Tools On My Hair Extensions?

Our hair extensions are made from the highest quality human hair, so you can treat them exactly as you do your own natural locks. Our extensions use “Remy” hair, which means each strand is facing in the same direction; all the cuticles lie flat and face towards the end of the strand. This eliminates frizz and flyaways from occurring. As such, the hair is in such good condition that you’ll be able to use heat to style, whether from a blow dry, straightener, or curling iron. This makes them much easier to blend in with your natural hair.

Hair Heat Styling Tools

It’s important to know, though, that because our extensions are made from human hair, they can suffer damage from overusing heat tools. If you choose to use heat on your extensions, pay attention to the following.

  • Don’t overdo it. Just like you won’t mistreat your hair, it’s important to give your hair extensions a rest from heat tools every once in a while. Doing so will help them last much longer.
  • Use heat protection. If you use high-heat tools like curling irons/rods or straightening irons, make sure to use a heat protector spray before you start with the tool.
  • Curl before applying. If you curl your hair with an iron, it’s a good idea to curl your extensions separately. This is because of your natural hair and the extensions will have different textures and may require different curling times or higher/lower heat. By doing them separately, you reduce the risk of damaging your own and the extensions. Once applied, you can make small adjustments for blending.
