Q: Can they be straightened, curled?
A: Treat the hair as if it is your own. Use a flat iron/Curler. Never use hot tools too often as you could dry the hair and it will not last as long.
Q: Can I dye color the hair?
A: yes. The hair can be colored. We highly recommend having your hairdresser dye the extensions as you will get the results you want, coloring them yourself always poses a high risk of not coming out the shade you want. If you can’t get to a salon, always use a good quality hair dye and test a small sample first.
Q: Can I wash & blow-dry the hair extensions?
A: you can wash them as you would your own. Shampoo and conditioner. We also recommend using a hair treatment on them every few weeks, because the hair is not attached to your scalp, it is not getting the oils it should be. Using a treatment/hair mask will need to wash your extensions too much, about every 3 weeks. The extensions can be blow-dried on low setting, but it is not recommended to do it too often. It is best to let your hair extensions dry naturally after washing them.
Q. What Colors Can I Get?
A. Becuase the hair is virgin hair, it does not come in colors. The hair is a natural black/Dark brown color. Depending on the donor of the hair we may have some darker, lighter bundles but majority of the hair comes in a natural black color.
Q. How Much Hair Do I Need?
A: If you are getting a full weave the average person needs about 2 packs of hair, although it is advised to go for 3 packs. For weave it is best to buy two packs to make sure you have enough. You can always use the leftover hair later. If you are using hair over 18"
long you might need another pack. If you are getting tracks one pack is enough for four to five tracks up to 18" hair length.
Q. Why are my hair extensions getting tangled?
A: Your Hair Extensions can tangle due to being to dryness, oil & dirt build-up, salt-water, chlorine and not combed (wide tooth comb) out your hair daily. Make sure to wash & condition your hair at least once a week, twice a week is better. Use hydrating drops or consult your stylist for more help. It could also be the hair you purchased, if the hair is Indian Remy Hair or non Remy Hair it is not 100% virgin human hair. So the hair may tangle sooner and not last you as long as 100% virgin hair.

Q: Whats the difference between Indian, Brazilian, Malaysian Hair?
Malaysian Hair - Malaysian hair at first can appear excessively shiny but after the first 2/3 washes the shine
lessens considerably to take on a more natural appearance. Curls will not loosen
or drop with time but maintain their form for the entire day. No product is
required to maintain the curl. Avoid using too oil spray on this hair as it will
make the hair very shiny and appear 'wiggy'. Malaysian hair is also softer and
silker in texture than Indian
Indian Hair - tends to dry into a beautiful wave which ranges from a slight wave to very wavy,
although it straightens and curls very easily. The hair holds curls very well
but they do loosen slightly but will never totally fall out unless you are in a
humid or damp environment.
Brazilian Hair - This hair is a little coarser and thicker in texture than Indian
or Malaysian hair. It blends well with normal African-American relaxed hair
textures and medium Caucasian hair textures. The hair is available in wavy,
straight or curly textures. The curly texture becomes more curly when wet or
