100% Human Hair On Sale + Free Shipping
With our 100% natural Remy human hair extensions, you can expect the best quality and a long lifespan. In the extension world, Remy refers to the fact that each individual strand of hair is pointed in the same direction. This means that the cuticles are facing downward to keep frizz to a minimum. Because our hair extensions are created with such high standards in mind, that means they are in the best shape possible and can be treated just like your own hair.
If you want to go blonde or ombre or even if you want to experiment with funky colors, you’ll need to bleach your hair. Luckily, our Remy hair extensions are capable of being bleached and colored, too! And because they are in such good condition to begin with, you’ll experience minimal damage to the extensions, so your newly lightened locks will maintain their sheen and movement. Additionally, because you can remove the extensions from your scalp (unlike your real hair!), they are much easier to bleach and color; no more needing a second pair of hands to get the back of your head! If you’re just bleaching the extensions for an ombre style, a dip-bleach method is an easy place to start.
With all-natural human hair extensions, you have to be as careful as you are with your natural locks. From washing to styling and everything in between, you should be gentle with your extensions if you want to keep them looking their best for months to come. Brushing is one of those stages of hair extension maintenance that can be a little tricky to maneuver. Here are a few tips on how to properly brush your hair extensions.
Unless you’ve chosen halo hair extensions or clip-ins extensions, you’ll likely be living with your extensions installed for up to a few weeks. This means you’ll be sleeping with them each night. This can take a bit of time to get used to, especially with all the new length and volume you may not be accustomed to. Sleeping with hair extensions in place may be uncomfortable at first, so we’ve gathered a few tips to make it more comfortable for you:
Like your regular hair, hair extensions need to be taken care of if they are to remain in good condition for as long as possible. Washing your hair extensions is one task that might seem optional, because, after all, aren’t you removing them whenever you aren’t’? That may be true but washing them will help keep them in good shape for a longer time, so don’t skip out on this step.
There are two things you need to remember when it comes to how often you should wash your extension. First, you should not wash them every day. In fact, many women are coming to learn that their natural hair doesn’t even need to be washed that often. Washing too regularly over-encourages sebum secretion, which is what makes hair greasy on the scalp. If you wear hair extensions daily, your natural sebum will release onto the hair extensions along with your natural locks. Washing once or twice a week with a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo will help keep your extensions healthy and shiny.
The second thing you need to remember is that there will also be times where you’ll wash your hair extensions “as needed.” This means that along with your once or twice-weekly washing, you may need to give an additional wash, especially if you use a lot of hair products. If you notice a buildup of hairspray or dry shampoo, your extensions are probably getting sticky or dull. This is a good sign that it’s time to wash, particularly if you want to keep wearing your extensions for a long time. Finally, you should also consider weekly or monthly leave-in treatments or masks to encourage shine.
The better condition you keep your extensions in, the longer they will last. However, you may have noticed that the older extensions get, the more they lose their softness and shine. Luckily, there are a few methods to bring back that luster and smoothness using a few simple products.
One of the worst things for extensions-wearers is having a bad blend or even no blend at all! Blending is a crucial part of making sure your extensions look as natural as possible. While it’s best to have a stylist apply your extensions, you can still practice blending on your own with easy clip-ins. Pay attention to the following for the best blending:
The great thing about our hair extensions is that if you take care of them well, they can last for more than a year. Of course, proper storage for when the hair is not in use is crucial for keeping your extensions in good enough shape to last a long time.
For clip-in extensions, you’ll want to follow the steps listed below for proper storage:
When it comes to taking care of your hair extensions, the products you use on them have major effects, so you’ll want to make sure you’re using the right products. Here are a few things you’ll want to stock up on to if you want to get the most out of your extensions:
Finding the right shampoo is never an easy feat, whether its for natural hair or extensions. You’ll want to find the right formula that works with your texture, scalp, and desired outcome. While it’s impossible to say what the absolute best shampoo is for all hair extensions, there are a few things you should look for when looking for the ideal shampoo for your needs.
First of all, moisture is key. Just like your real hair, human hair extensions need to be hydrated regularly. This will keep the cuticle smooth and reduce frizz. When looking for a moisturizing shampoo, look for ingredients like argan oil, coconut milk, shea butter, and avocado oil, among others. These are some of the top moisturizing elements commonly found in shampoos and conditioners today.
Next, there are things you should avoid in a shampoo, namely, sulfates. Sulfates have typically been used in everything from shampoo to soap to toothpaste and give these items their “sudsing” capabilities. All those bubbles that let us know something is clean? Sulfates. The downside is that these chemicals can leave a sticky residue on the hair, weighing it down and making it dull. Sulfate-free shampoo will encourage moisture and shine.
Finally, if your extensions are colored, a color-protecting shampoo is a good option for you. They are often very hydrating and also include certain proteins and amino ions that create a protective layer over the hair shaft to seal in the color. This has the added benefit of strengthening each strand and keeping in moisture.
All of our hair extensions are made from the finest human hair, which means that they’ll last sometimes longer than a year if taken care of properly. But how do you make sure the hair stays in great condition for as long as possible? Here are a few tips:
You’ve most likely come across hair shedding several times in your life. If you think you haven’t, just go check your hairbrush for the evidence!
Like your natural hair, hair extensions can experience shedding. Shedding occurs when individual strands of hair are pulled out of the weft or away from the clip, tape, or other methods of installation. Unless your extensions are sewn in tightly to the weft, you will experience shedding. And because your extensions are made from human hair, this is normal! But there are a few things you can do to reduce the risk of shedding.
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.
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.
Drying hair is always a source of frustration; a blow-dry means the risk of heat damage, but you can style as you go. Air drying means that you won’t be susceptible to damage, but you’ll likely have to use heat to style your hair once it’s dry anyway, so you may not have saved your hair from damage at all. However, there are a few things you can try when it comes to drying your new hair extensions.
