Do Clip-In Hair Extensions Shed?
Just like your natural hair, extensions will shed. Shedding is a common occurrence with hair extensions because they are made of human hair, you can expect some shedding throughout their lifespan. As you brush and style your extensions, some fall-out may occur so don’t be surprised or worried when this happens. This, however, does not mean to reduce the amount you brush your extensions as you can minimize shedding in other ways. Keep in mind, extensions are more likely to shed when they are dry and brittle.
Do They Tangle?
Matting and tangling is a normal occurrence with not just your natural hair but with all types of hair extensions. This can happen due to a lack of constant brushing, weather, or dryness. A common reason why extensions tangle and get matted throughout the day is because of a combination of sweat, heat, and friction. Also, keep in mind that when human hair is constantly moving around it’s going to matt or ‘clump’ together in pieces.
If you aren’t brushing your hair consistently, you’re giving the hair the opportunity to matt and tangle. During the day, we generate heat at the nape of our neck and scalp, and often times we sweat back there too. Your sweat is salty, acidic and can dry out your hair extensions. When you add additional hair volume to this combination and constantly move your head throughout the day, tangling and matting will occur. Weather can also contribute to tangling, whether it be due to the wind, humidity or heat. Humidity will add a lot of moisture to the environment which will cause your hair to frizz up and tangle. Heat will do just the opposite as it will dry it out.
Do Hair Extensions Work for Thin Hair?
Yes, hair extensions are a great way for adding thickness to thin and fine hair, without causing any damage to your natural hair or hindering hair growth in the meantime.
How Long do Extensions Last?
The lifespan of HEC can range anywhere between 3-6 months to a year or longer, depending on the general care they receive and how often they are worn. The important thing to remember is that your hair extensions don’t have a natural hydration source like your own hair does so keeping them moisturized and reducing dryness is crucial to prolonging their lifespan.
Virgin Hair Extensions Vs Remy Hair Extensions
What is Remy hair? Remy hair is 100% human hair that is sourced around the world with the cuticle intact. The cuticle will run the same direction to keep the hair from tangling. The donors will donate their hair in a pony tail to ensure that the cuticles are all going the same direction. By doing this, the hair will be tangle-free and in its most natural form. Non-Remy hair will matte up and you will not be able to brush the hair because of the hair shafts rubbing together that causes tangling and matting. Because sellers know this, they often dip the hair in a silicone coating to try to disguise the hair. Once the silicone is washed out by the consumer, the hair begins to matte and tangle. Non Remy hair can also have part of the cuticle removed so that tangling and matting will not occur. Therefore, Non-Remy hair is significantly cheaper than Remy hair. Remember, invest in your hair, it is the crown your never take off!
Remy hair is a highest quality grade of Remy hair on the market hair with the cuticle intact. It lasts for 3-4 applications with proper care (9 months – 1 year). Most hair extensions company are mass producing their hair. By having a small production batch, this gives us more control on the quality of hair that is selected. We use an advanced technology system to produce high quality human hair extensions that last. During this process we never use any harsh chemicals or silicones which leaves the cuticles in tact, unlike other hair extension companies that use harsh bleaching, acid baths, and silicones during processing which compromise the quality of hair. All Glam Seamless hair extensions are hand coloured. Our colour rings are designed as a guide and colour can vary from batch to batch due to natural variances in human hair.
Glam Seamless Extra Virgin is also 100% Remy human hair with cuticle intact, it is a premium highest grade of hair that is ethically sourced from one single donor. Extra Virgin is silky straight Mongolian Virgin hair. It is a thicker/higher quality of hair versus the regular Remy. Our Extra Virgin Hair is the highest quality human hair on the market. This hair comes from one single ponytail donor, undergoes a different brand new gentle manufacturing technology that allows the hair to last longer (slow colour bath and no harsh bleach or chemicals – leaving the hair almost as pure as when donated). Because the hair comes from one ponytail and gets processed in a 12 step process, this leaves the hair in its virgin state-allowing it to last for 5-6 wears (1.5-2 years). Mongolian hair is extremely rare due to a population of 2.6 million people in the country. It is most known for its very soft texture. It blends well with many hair types and comes in a range of different colours
How Do I Wash My Hair Extensions?
Clip In hair extensions do not need to be washed often, as they do not receive oils from our scalp like our natural hair. We recommend washing your extensions every 15-20 wears or when you notice a build-up of product. The less you wash your extensions the longer they will last.
When you are washing your extensions you treat them similarly to your own hair, using a shampoo first followed by conditioner and a hydrating mask. When you are washing the hair never use circular motions as it may tangle the hair and always rinse thoroughly to remove excess product.
