How to decide on hair extension length?
Use the Hair extension guide length to get an approximate length for ordering your hair extensions. Please note that the hair is always measured in a complete straighten state. Therefore curly hair will be shorter than straight hair but it has more volume for the same weight. The length of wavy hair lies in between the straight and curly.
What is virgin hair?
Refers to hair that is completely unprocessed, and intact. To qualify as virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, chemically processed in any way. This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction.

Virgin hair is chemically unprocessed human hair, which is collected from a single donor (the donor could be Indian, Malaysian, Brazilian, etc). The virgin hair is remy hair that has not been altered by dyes, perms, bleaches, or harsh washes.
What is Remy hair?
High quality “remy” is collected directly from a woman's head and has been cut while in a ponytail, from a single donor, and is the full length of the strands. This collection process guarantees that the cuticles will stay aligned and the end result will be pure remy hair.

After sewing in a weave, how long should I have it in before removing it?
Your own natural hair will grow about 1 to 1½ inches every 8 to 12 weeks, so depending on how long you leave it in for, you may need to tighten it or remove it as you desire. For high quality hair, you may have it removed to wash and restore, and then get it weaved in again.
Can I swim while wearing a weave?
Yes, you may go swimming in a pool, but we recommend applying a hydrating/moisturizing conditioner to the hair before and after entering the pool to avoid tangling. We also recommend making one or two large braids to keep your hair in place to further avoid tangling.
If you plan to swim in the ocean, we recommend wearing a swimming cap because the ocean’s salt water can be harsh. We also recommend washing and conditioning the hair as soon as you are done swimming.
Can the hair be straightened or curled?
Your new virgin hair extensions can be treated as if it is your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will. Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protecting product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours.
How do I sleep with my weave on?
Loosely braid or twist your weave, and wrap the hair in a satin scarf or bonnet before going to bed to keep the hair from tangling overnight.
