Hair extension usage and care

What are the reasons we should wear hair extensions?

The usefulness of hair extensions in supporting hair volume and length is innumerable but do you even realize the benefits can go way more than this

  1. Supportive to hair volume
  2. Hair loss and hair thinning could pose a challenge to your confidence and image perception. So also is the challenge when trying to get your hair to thick from thin. However, with hair extensions, you can get all of these problems behind you as you can always get these hair products to add the greatly needed volume to your hair.

  3. Supportive to hair length
  4. Whether you’re having issues with inadequate hair growth or are reeling from the pain of a badly-done haircut, hair extensions can come in handy in any of these scenarios as you can easily use them to conceal these deficiencies.

  5. Great for color experimentation
  6. Most people who want to experiment with different colors on their hair are often scared and wary of ruining their hair. It is reasonable and understandable that most people would be concerned that some of these hair dye products may ruin their hair.

  7. Offers abundant style flexibility
  8. With hair extensions, you’ve got a whole lot of possibilities and options when it comes to style. It is obvious that hair extensions would generally make any hairstyle more beautiful. With the several volume, length and color options available at your disposal, you can easily create a more stylish version of yourself.

What are the tips for hair care in winters?

Winter is quite a tough time for human hair extensions. The cold conditions prevailing leave the extensions dry and brittle by sucking out the moisture from the hair. Extra care and attention are needed towards the extensions to prevent the damage in winters. Today I will like to suggest some care tips for human hair extensions that must be taken to maintain the natural texture and shine of extensions.

  • Winter friendly hair products 
  • Less shampoo, more conditioning 
  • Limit heat styling 
  • Brush daily 
  • Don’t go out with wet hair

Besides these general care tips, you can nourish your hair with some healthy natural oils like olive, jojoba, and avocado, to provide essential nutrients to extensions. PRARVI deals in Indian virgin Remy unprocessed hair extensions and all the above tips, if well followed give them the great life and look.

How to check quality of hair extensions?

It is hard to find the best quality hair; many companies ‘use terms like Remy and Virgin without reflecting the reality of their extensions. Ethically collected real human hair is purchased from Indian temples or collected with paid donors with utmost care (prior collection). This means that the hair has not been bleached or chemically treated and it’s in the natural state. Some of the methods to check quality are:

  • CUTICLE TEST 
  • SMELL TEST 
  • THICKNESS TEST BURN TEST 
  • BLEACH TEST 
  • WASH TEST 
  • WEIGHT TEST 
  • LENGTH TEST 
  • SHED TEST 
  • CURL AND STRAIGHTEN TEST

What are the tips to take care of extensions?

Taking care of the extension is the same way you take care of your hair. It is very simple to take care of extensions. Following are the tips one must consider if they own a clip in hair extension:

  1.  Brush 
  2. It must be seen that extensions are brushed regularly. Just like your normal hair, extensions get tangled too. The more careful you are while brushing, the longer it will last.
  3.  Washing
  4. Just like your normal hair requires to be cleaned, extensions are supposed to be cleaned once a month.
  5.  Drying Up
  6. After they are washed, it should be gently towel dried and must be left hanging to dry.
  7.  Avoid Heat
  8. It is generally advisable to avoid heating products like curlers or straightener. Additional heat will ruin the beauty of the product and can lead to damaging, quite quickly.
  9. Storage
  10. The last tip is the most important one. It is very important to store extensions in a safe and right manner. It is highly recommended to use an extension box to store the extensions.

Though these are plain and normal tips, if extensions are taken care of in this manner, the usage of the product will always be better. As they say, prevention is always better than cure.

How to check shedding in hair extensions?

Hair shedding, as defined in hair extensions manufacturing, is due to poorly done wefts which cannot hold hair. The hair slips out form loose wefts and slowly the entire weft may become empty. For accurate testing of shedding in the weft, please open your hair extension weft and hold it in your hand by weft. Then try to pull single strands of hair from different locations in the weft. If the hair is pulled out easily without breakage, it means that the quality of the weft is not good. 

What is the most common length that people buy when purchasing hair extensions?

Hair length varies by ethnic segments, occasions and seasons. Most Latin American community purchases longer lengths (upwards of 22 inches) while African American community prefer around 18–20 inches length. The longer lengths are more common in winters while shorter and textures are more popular in summer.

Are hair wigs comfortable?

Yes. If you purchase the right quality, right size and right weight of hair for yourself, they are comfortable and natural looking. Like for best augmentation, don’t go for the biggest size or longest length or highest weight but chose it according to your needs and you will enjoy it. The variations can be beautiful and you can wear them differently for occasions. However, a very important dimension is to use natural hair as I sell. Synthetic products can sometimes be irritating or too heavy for your head.

What are some tips for the maintenance of hair extensions?

Most important hair need is to condition the hair from time to time. Traditional Indian methods for keeping good hair are to use coconut oil before washing the hair. You can do that as well.

Keep it combed and if there is any small tangling, comb it gently to remove them. Remy hair extensions like any natural hair can have small tangles which need to be gently removed.

If you are planning to color or bleach your hair, please make sure to work with a good professional stylist.

Can you dye hair extensions?

Yes. You can dye hair extensions which are raw / virgin hair. You can also dye cuticle free hair but the results may be not be very consistent. You cannot dye already dyed hair extensions.

Is there a way to fully lighten hair without bleaching?

Hair has pigments which are in the hair fiber. You will need to remove those pigments from the hair fiber to lighten the color. The process of removing those pigments is called bleaching. The bleaching is done with chemicals which remove those pigments from hair fiber after opening the cuticles. There can be alternative methods of bleaching like Sun or natural compounds but all of the above goes through the process of removing pigments.

If you only want to change your appearance without needing to bleach, you can also use wigs or extensions. I do sell variety of them at Natural Indian Virgin Remy Hair Wigs or Extensions.

Can hair extensions provide coverage on top?

You can use a closure or frontal to cover the top and use matching hair extensions. I have both these products available in different variety at Natural Indian Virgin Remy Hair Wigs or Extensions at my websites. My closure and frontal have skin base, so that u can keep your hair a secret.

Will my scalp still be able to breathe naturally with hair extensions?

It depends on the technique you apply to install hair extensions. If you are using extension methods like micro-links or clip-ons, they don’t touch the scalp at all. So there is no area which is covered on scalp and the scalp will be able to breathe well.

However, if you use extensions method which use glues or use a base cap, you do have a cover on the head, so some precautions are to be taken like proper installation, good quality extensions etc.

If you already have long hair, is it possible to still wear longer hair extensions?

You can do that. In fact, if you want to have highlights but don’t want to color the hair, you can add extensions to do the same. Prarvi have high quality clip on with galvanized clips. We have highlighter clip on as well.

Can I place clip-in hair extensions and remove them by myself at home, or will I need help?

You can add or remove clip-ins by yourselves. You don’t need help to do that. Sometimes you may want to style your hair with clip-ins and want a professional to do it. You can do that as well. Prarvi have high quality clip on with galvanized clips. We have highlighter clip on as well.

Can I perm hair extensions? If so, will the damage be extreme?

Yes, definitely, if they are made of human hair (Virgin or Cuticle free).Virgin hair will be able to withstand more chemical process as it is unprocessed hair whereas cuticle free hair needs to be treated carefully as it can have damage if treated badly.

Also if the hair color of your extensions was obtained after lot of bleaching from color #1B, you should be careful in bleaching as it can damage the hair.

Moreover check with manufacturer for the quality of hair and type of process which can be done on it. Prarvi hair can be permed very well.
