Frequently Asked Questions

Why are Hair Extensions so popular?

Hair extensions have become very popular as people are discovering that they are a great way to add length, volume and highlights to your hair. They blend in with your own hair making your new appearance look very natural. The results of having Hair Extensions added are instant and can be very dramatic with longer lengths giving a very healthy and voluptuous look in not time at all.

Are all the Hair Extensions Human Hair?

All of our hair extensions are marked on the website as Human Hair or Synthetic. The majority are Human Hair extensions which are 100% Human Hair.

Where is the Hair in the Extensions sourced from

The Raw hair for the majority of the Human hair Extensions and wefts we provide is sourced throughout India and Asia (as are most extensions on the market). However some Hair can be sourced form Mongolia as it is a finer fibre (similar to European hair) and suitable for use in wigs and extensions for the Jewish community.

What Grade/Quality are the Extensions you provide?

The Hair Extensions we provide are mostly very finely graded "A" to "A+" grade hair. However some of the extensions are "Remy" quality. We have been providing these extensions for use throughout Australia and Overseas for use in Movies, Theater, Television, Fashion Shows and Every Day use for many years and are constantly complimented on the quality and value for money they represent.

(please see our Extensions Application page for further explanation of Quality)

How long will my Hair Extensions Last?

It can be difficult to say exactly how long Hair Extensions will last as it will depend on many factors.

Hair extensions that are removed each night will last longer than the hair permanently attached as removing them avoids unnecessary wear and tear. Other environmental factors, such as heat and humidity can effect how long the extensions will last. Sea Water and chlorinated pool water can affect the life of your extensions as well.

Just like your own hair, your hair extensions will need looking after carefully.

What is the best method of applying my hair extensions?

There are many ways to apply hair extensions and it is up to the individual to make an appropriate choice depending on their situation. They can be applied permanently or temporarily which allows the wearer to wear then when they wish and remove them for care/washing and when sleeping.

(please see our Extensions Application page for further explanation of application methods available)

Will I need a hairdresser to apply my hair extensions?

Depending on how you would like to have your hair extensions applied will ultimately determine whether you need a hairdresser or not. Clip in hair extensions are very good for the client who doesn't want to wear them all the time and would prefer to add or remove them extensions themselves. However, a client may prefer to have their Hair Extensions applied more permanently and look after them similarly like their own hair. In this case you will require a hairdresser (or friend with suitable skills) to apply your extensions.

What is the best way of taking care of my hair extensions?

It is always best to invest in a good quality shampoo and conditioner as you will find your hair extensions will keep better condition and last longer. Washing should be more of a gentle massaging/squeezing of the hair between your hands rather than a vigorous action that can cause tangling and matting

(please see our Caring For Extensions page for further explanation of care procedures)

Can I straighten my Hair Extensions with a Hair Straightener?

All Human Hair Extensions can tolerate heat so you can use a hair straightener, Hair Curler or hair dryer. Just like you would use these appliances on your own hair you can use them in your hair extensions, however do be aware that appyling heat will slowly degrade the hair.

(please see our Caring For Extensions page for further explanation of care procedures)
