What are hair extensions?
Hair extensions are hair that is attached to your own hair to give you the appearance and feel of longer and thicker hair. They are perfect for fine, limp or thinning hair.
How To Choose The Length Of The Hair Extensions?
No matter how long your hair (wig) is, clip in hair extensions should be worn from the top downwards, around 2-6 inches. Therefore if the length of the extension is N inches, the whole length will be N + 6 inches.
Eg: If you want to add hair length to 24 inches long, 18 inches clip in will be recommended.

How to measure the hair extensions?
The straight textures are measured true to length.
The body wave, loose wave and curly are measured when hair is pulled straight.
How many bundles do I need?
1 bundle includes 100 grams (3.5 oz) hair. For a full sew in weave we recommend buying 2-3 bundles of hair. For hair over 16″, we recommend ordering 3-4 bundles of hair. The main rule: longer hair equals shorter weft width.
Also, take into consideration that the numbers bundles needed also depends on the style and volume you desire.
Can I cut the hair wefts?
Absolutely! You can cut the hair weaves when you sew them in your hair. However, we recommend sealing the ends so that hair will not shed at point of cut.
Why using a lace closure?
Customers that wears sew in weaves, often use the Lace Closures to cover the top area of the head where the weft hair is sewn down. They are used to cover the area that is known to many as the "leave-out". Those who are very familiar to wearing weaves know that the most important part of weaving is to make sure the area at the front hairline & crown area are well blended. They can also be used with various other weaving methods.
Can I wash the hair extensions?
Yes, you can wash your hair extensions. Please wash it gently with warm water and some mild shampoo following with conditioner. Rinse it carefully and let it air dry. DONT rub the hair extension or press it to hard while washing it.
How long will the hair extensions last?
How long the hair lasts depends on how you maintain it. Normally they can last from 6 months to a 1 year. Treat it like your own hair and take very good care of it, then it could last longer than 12 months.
Will extensions damage my hair?
Although the wefts and clip-in hair methods are semi-permanent, they will not cause damage to your hair if installed and removed correctly. You can also ensure that no damage is caused, by using the right remover when taking the extensions out. If you are not a professional yourself we always recommend you to go to a salon or professional hair dresser.
Remember, while wearing the extensions you are not losing the normal amount of hair per day (which is normally from 50-100 strands per day). So when removing the hair extensions after several weeks, all this hair will also come off as well.
Can I wear the hair extensions to bed?
If you are wearing clip-ins, it is recommended that you remove them before going to bed to avoid any unnecessary tangling, and to avoid damaging the clips. If you are wearing hair wefts/weaves or lace closures, it is perfectly fine to wear them to bed. Just make sure to brush your complete head of hair at night and in the morning with a special designed brush for extensions. You should always braid your hair before going to bed, to effectively avoid causing any tangling.
