CLIP IN HAIR EXTENSIONS: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Are the extensions real human hair?
Yes! The extensions are 100% Remy Human Hair. This means that the hair is of the highest quality and that all the cuticles are intact and aligned in the same direction which prevents the hair from tangling and shedding. You can therefore treat the hair as you would your own hair and can wash, style and blow dry.
How long do they last?
100% human hair Clip in hair Extensions usually last between 6 months and a year (depending on how often you use and wash them and how well you look after them). Daily usage, regular heating and frequent washing all contribute to the wear and tear of your extensions. We advise not sleeping in your extensions to prevent damage to the hair. We recommend only washing your extensions every 10 - 20 wears.
How many clips do I get?
Each set of extensions is comprised of 7 wefts and you only need one set to cover your entire head. The 7 pieces consist of:
- 1 x 8" wide weft (4 clips)
- 2 x 6" wide wefts (3 clips)
- 2 x 4" wide wefts (2 clips)
- 2 x 2" wide wefts (1 clip)
How do I put them in?
- Part the section of your hair at the back of your head that is in line with your earlobes.
- Open the clips and attach them close to the roots. Start with the middle clip and with the biggest clip in piece. You can use a backcomb to rough the hair a bit close to the roots to give the clips a bit more hair to clip on to.
- Repeat these steps at different partings of your hair. Be sure to start at the lower half of your head and work your way up.
- The extensions should feel very secure and will not come out unless you unclip them.
- Do not try to slide the extensions off without first opening the clip.
How often should I wash them?
We recommend washing your clip in hair extensions every 10-20 wears. It is also a good idea to simply air them out as this is often gets the job done. Always use high quality shampoo to wash them.
How many sets do I need?
Clip ins are for thin and medium hair. If you have very thick hair, you may need 2 sets. Each set is 110 grams and has 7 pieces as explained above. All the pieces are the same length but have different widths.
What colour should I choose?
It’s always a good idea to choose a colour that closely matches your natural hair colour as you want the extensions to look as natural as possible and don’t necessarily want people to know you are wearing them.
If you are looking for a streak look or want to add a different shade of colour then it is best to buy micro loop (also known as micro ring extensions). Click here for our Micro Loop collection.
If you choose the wrong colour you can always return it within 7 days provided they are not damaged and unworn. Please see our Returns Policy for further details. If you are unsure of what colour to choose you can always send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and just attach a few photos of yourself in indoor and outdoor lighting and we’ll make sure you choose the right colour.
Can they be coloured?
It is better to not colour them as they have already undergone chemical treatment to get the extensions to the specific colour they are.
They can however be dyed to a darker shade but not to a lighter shade. Please bear in mind that dying your extensions will usually shorten the life of the hair.
It’s also better to always use a professional stylist if you want to colour them and always a good idea to first test one of the smaller clips and to use semi-permanent dye.
Are they comfortable to wear?
This is definitely one of the best things about clip in extensions. Once they are in you will not even know they are there! Girls they really are great! It will take you less than 5 minutes to insert, looks completely natural and you won’t even know you’re wearing them!
