Synthetic hair has come a long way in recent years with technology. From what was usually a very shiny material, lost it’s style very quickly and looked extremely fake is now manufactured to act and feel like human hair. Most synthetic hair can be heated up to a certain temperature, this would depend on the brand, quality and make on the synthetic hair. Although synthetic hair isn’t made for a lengthy life span like human hair extensions with the right care and attention it can last anything between 8 – 10 weeks. It’s also very cost friendly in the short term.
Human hair should be 100% made of human hair. 100% human hair extensions has the cuticles removed which means the life span will be shorter than remy extensions. They will last for anything between 3 – 5 months depending on the aftercare and maintenance they receive. You can style the extensions any way that you want.
Remy Human Hair
Remy human hair extensions is 100% human hair, however it is processed slightly different to just the human hair extensions. When processing the extensions it is made sure that the cuticles remain intact and that they face the same direction from root to tip. This enables the extensions to have a natural shine and tangle-free. These extensions can last up to 9 months; again depending on the maintenance and aftercare of them.
Q. Can you style Human Hair Extensions?
A. Yes, you can – we recommend no more than 180c however heating and styling them can reduce the life span. Although we believe you should treat extensions how you would treat your own hair – if you are using heat on them then use heat products. This way it can maintain the condition and reduce the damage to them.
Q. What length should I get?
A. It is entirely up to you. We recommend if you’re after a more natural look then not to go longer than 6″ past your natural hair length.
Q. Can the extensions be coloured?
A. Human hair extensions can be coloured however we do not recommend it. If you choose to colour or silver shampoo them then it will be at your own risk.
