Frequently Asked Questions

1. What do we mean by virgin or natural hair?

Virgin or natural hair is unprocessed as it has not been chemically treated or manipulated in anyway, leaving the hair cuticles damage free and intact, making it more durable. Virgin or natural hair also meets other standards including no perming, no colouring, no bleaching and should come from a single donor (to ensure that the hair falls in the same direction).

 
2. What is the difference between hand tied and machine weft?


As the name suggests, hand tied wefts simply means that hair is sewn onto the weft by hand using strong weaving thread. Hand tied wefts are much thinner than machine wefts because of the precision involved. Extra care must be taken when weaving and the weft must not be cut. The benefit of using hand tied wefts is that it is less detectable compared to machine wefts, which are made with a sewing machine specifically designed to stitch. Some argue that machine weft extensions are more durable than hand tied. We do not suggest you cut your wefts to ensure the longevity of the hair.

 
3. How much hair would I need for a full head weave?


We recommend a maximum of 3 bundles of hair (300g) for a full head sew in if the lengths are between 12”-18”.However if it is volume you are looking for, we recommend a minimum of 4 bundles for any lengths longer than 18” to create a voluminous look.


4. Can I straighten my hair? If so, would the curls come back?


Absolutely. Our hair extensions are versatile and can be styled as desired. This includes blow-drying and curling. Curls and waves can be restored after washing.

 
5. Can the hair be coloured?


Yes, our hair extensions can be coloured to your preference. However please note that when virgin hair is bleached, the hair is stripped of its natural moisture and so regular deep conditioning is recommended until the hair is restored back to its normal state of moisture.
Excessive bleaching can damage virgin hair.


6. How long does the hair last for?


Like your natural hair, with good care and maintenance there’s no reason why your hair shouldn’t be reused over and over again.


7. What are closures?


Our closure is a small realistic top or side parting that can be added to give your weave a complete and more realistic finish. It can also used to add more volume to your hair or cover the loss of the hair on the top of the head.
