Hair Extensions 101

Hair extensions for women are a blessing for every girl out there. They transform any and every look within minutes and make them look so luscious and flawless. While clip-in hair extensions are guaranteed to make you look gorgeous the moment you step out. Keeping them healthy, flawless and how you care for human hair extensions from the comfort of your home is what truly matters!

Remy hair extensions are nothing but virgin hair and our hair extensions for women are 100% human hair. They undergo a long process to ensure best quality.

Here I am, your personal Remy hair extension guardian ready to guide you through our frequently asked human hair extensions tips. Slay your looks even if you’re stuck at home ;)

1. Wash your clip-in hair extensions correctly

Although it’s true that human hair extensions can be treated just as our natural locks, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. Since Remy hair extensions aren’t subjected to the oils produced by your scalp the way your natural hair is, you don’t have to wash them as often. It's important that you hydrate them and ensure they are always nourished and moisturized by alcohol and sulfate free shampoos and conditioners. Sometimes skip the shampoo and only co-wash with a conditioner. Do not rub them vigorously when washing and while drying also.

2. Brush them with care

We all tend to brush our hair a little too harshly and it's only when we see strands of hair on the floor we freak out. Similarly, hair extensions for women will start to become loose if you fail to take utmost care. Just like your natural hair, your clip-in hair extensions will experience tangling but how you tackle it is what counts! 

Firstly, invest in a good quality brush then follow the sequence of brushing your hair from the ends before working your way up. 

We recommend you to brush them in the morning, before and after washing. 

3. Clip-in hair extensions correctly 

Maintaining your human hair extensions begins with how you clip-in them. Our Remy hair extensions are very easy to use. All you have to do is clip them on your parting hairline and cover it with your natural hair to conceal any evidence that you’ve clipped in human hair extensions. You need not get any assistance from the professional hairstylist to get hair extensions. If you follow our page on instagram, you’ll be able to follow well should you face any difficulty.

4. 3 essentials to keep handy

An incredible hairspray, a little bit of wax and lots of well-placed bobby pins can literally take you all the way from a red carpet to cocktails ;). These are the 3 must have essentials!

The key to wearing hair extensions is the maintenance!

 5. Keep those flyaway's down

It’s so annoying! We draw hairstyle inspiration from Pinterest only to end up getting a hair duo that is nowhere near to what we had imagined, damn right no? There are a few hair flyaway's that will always come out and make it look as if we have received a shocker *facepalm*. Here's what you can do, just take an unused toothbrush, spray a bit of hairspray and then swipe it over those flyaway's to lay them flat and smooth! Let your thick hair extensions blend in with your hair ;)

6. Mix colours 

Trick the eye by mixing two different hair colours that will compliment each other. This hack is sure to add a dimension of style to your hair that draws eyes away from the base of your hair extensions. Before clipping them on, just ensure to connect two different wefts of hair extensions on your head!

Maintenance is not that difficult but you should be dedicated to putting efforts and ensuring that your clip-in hair extensions lasts super long. Just follow these very simple steps and you should be good ;)! If you face any barrier, feel free to reach out to us and we will be more than happy to assist you! xx
