What type of hair care products should I use?
Treat this hair like your own hair. Use good quality shampoo and conditioning products. Conditioning your hair is very important to keep it soft and manageable, so use leave in conditioners. You can also use products like gel and hair spray to keep the curls in place, but be sure to wash your hair and not leave them in for a long time.

Can I color this hair?
Yes! This is 100% virgin human hair which is not processed in any way. So you can color the hair. Once virgin hair is treated in any way, it is no longer virgin. Generally, it is advised to make any major color changes after having your extensions applied.

Can I go swimming?
Yes! You can go in swimming pools and hot tubs! Just be sure to wash your hair right after swimming. Avoid getting hair in salt water as the salt can take all the moisture out of the hair and it can lead to tangling. Never braid your hair and go in salt water. It is best to wear it down. Add a spray-in conditioner after swimming.

How long does it last?
This hair can last for a very long time depending upon how well you maintain it. Treat it like your own hair and take good care of it for it to last longer.

What Are Hand Tied Wefts?
Hand tied wefts are done by hand and are much thinner then machine wefts. They will lay flat against your scalp to give you a more natural look and significantly reduce hair bumps caused by some bulkier wefts. Hand tied wefts come in one long track and the length of the track depends on the length of the hair. All of our wefts are reinforced to prevent shedding.

How much hair do I need?
If you are getting a full braid weave the average person needs about six ounces of hair. Some will need more some will need less. 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 equal to about four to five tracks up to 18" in length. If you are getting the hair bonded one pack is enough for four to five tracks up to 18" in length. If you are getting fusion or micro linking you should consult your stylist.

What is Single Drawn Hair?
Every hair piece looks like a ponytail made of different lengths of hair. The very short hairs have been removed. For example, a hair piece of 16" to 19" inches of Remy quality and single drawn has hair lengths of 16", 17", 18", and 19".

What is Double Drawn Hair?
Every hair piece contains only hair of the same length. This makes this type of hair piece also the most expensive one as this procedure is done by hand, not by machine. For example, a hair piece of 20 inches of Remy quality and double drawn has hair lengths of 20" only. It contains no hair shorter than that.

What do the terms "Bulk" and "Weft" mean?
Bulk hair is loose hair that is used for braiding and many other hair extension styles. We deliver it tied in a bundle ready for use. Weft hair is used for weaving. It is sewn or bonded (with hair glue) into a track ready for the weaving process.

What is Remy cuticle hair?

Where does Indian hair come from?
The hair comes from people who donate their hair in the name of prayer. In India, it is very common for people to sacrifice their hair in return for prayers that have been answered by God. The temples in India will cut the hair from the willing devotees, and then auction the hair off to distributors. The proceeds from the auctions and are returned back into the community in various charitable forms.

Why is Indian hair so special?
Indian hair is highly regarded in the hair industry because of its flexibility, durability, and texture. Indian hair is naturally thick and lustrous, so it gives the best possible styling and installation options for extensions. The hair is also naturally dark, so it works great with most braiding and weaving applications for women of color. Remy Indian hair goes hand in hand with long lasting quality, so you can rest assured that our hair is Remy Indian hair...that is our guarantee to you.
