2、How to choose the right shade for my hair extensions?
Getting the right shade of hair will make a huge difference to your finished look. The colour you see through your computer screen or mobile phone screen can be slightly different with the extensions’ true color. To achieve the most perfect match, you can order colour match from our website. This is considered to be the best solution. If you feel this could be a little troublesome, then please take a selfie of your hair under the natural light. Then send it to our customer service team, they will help you to decide on it.
3、How to choose the right length for my hair extensions?
We can absolutely understand your desire for a gorgeous, voluminous long locks in a few snaps. Whilst hair extensions are fabulous on doing this, adding length and volume, for a natural finish, we still suggest you opt for no more a couple of inches or so longer than your natural hair if you want it to blend. If you are buying extensions to cut and style with your hair, then remember to choose a longer length that can be trimmed.
- What type of hair is Lilyhair?
Lilyhair only use 100% full-cuticle virgin hair which is considered to be the finest quality of human hair. Virgin hair is much better than remy hair, because virgin hair is from one single ponytail, which is considered to be the most luxurious way to collect hair.
Unlike other brands who use the so-called ‘remy hair’ that the most of which actually are fallen hair from the hair salons with no aligned roots or the unidirectional cuticles that ultimately call for the acid bath to remove the cuticles which is extremely hazardous to the hair and would make your hair extension extremely fragile.
Our virgin hair is of the highest quality with the cuticles kept intact and hair strands being thicker and stronger. The cuticles would remain intact wash after wash and tangle-free throughout its lifetime.
All of these set our brand apart from the rest and the promising quality of our hair extensions makes you dye or bleach or heat-style your hair with care free. Voluminous, gorgeous hair extensions with long lifespan that can give you a stunning look is guaranteed here at Lilyhair.
- Can I color, tone, or bleach my hair extensions?
You may color, tone, or bleach your hair extensions, because they are 100% human hair. But we do not recommend bleaching your lilyhair as they have already been dyed at our manufacture, and forcing bleach on hair that has already been dyed can be difficult.
If you truly want to bleach your hair extensions, please consider our virgin hair with natural color and not color-treated before. If you would like to dye your hair, please opt for a lighter set to dye darker, rather than a darker set to bleach lighter.
And please be reminded that never try to dye the set yourself at home. Get yourself a professional hair colorist, ideally, someone who has had previous experience working with hair extensions. Test a small piece first before you decide to dye the extensions is always recommended.
- Are clip in extensions better than glue in extensions?
Yes, clip in extensions are better than glue in extensions. Clip in hair extensions can give you longer and thicker hair instantly! You can install clip in extensions yourself at home in a few minutes. You don’t need a hairdresser or any products/equipment.
It’s easy,quick and safe, and you can remove them whenever you like. Most glue in extensions would need a hairdresser to install your hair extensions and that could cost you extra money. Clip in hair extensions are damage-free, while some glue-in extensions with terrible quality adhesive tape could leave damage to your natural hair when being removed.
- How long do lilyhair extensions last?
Our extensions can last from 1 year to 2 years, it all depends on the way how you take care of them and how often you use them. The way they are cared for would largely decide the life-span of your hair extensions.
Your hair extensions are different from your own growing hair---they have no roots and unable to constantly get oil moisture from the scalp, so there’s no need for you to wash them very often---wash them everyday is absolutely a big no-no!
Wash your hair extensions after every 15 to 20 use is advisable or wash them when they look dirty, lifeless, have product build up or smell. Be sure to deep condition your extensions after each wash.
If you wear your extensions very frequently like everyday and keep doing heat styling on it, this in a long run could do harm on your extensions and shorten the lifespan of them. So be sure to use a heat protection spray before applying heat to minimize the damage and extend your hair extensions’ lifespan.
- How often should you wash your hair extensions?
This largely depends on how often you wear them. You can probably use your best judgement in how often to wash them. Try not wash your hair extensions often, because unlike your natural hair, these extensions will not collect the natural oil from your scalp.
If you are still unsure how often you should wash your hair extensions, then please wash your hair extensions after every 15 to 20 use or wash them when they look dirty, lifeless, have product build up or smell. We don’t recommend blow drying your hair if you can avoid it.
However, if you are looking to wear the extensions immediately after and would like to dry them quickly, make sure to use heat-protection spray to extend the lifespan of your hair extensions whenever you use a thermal styling tool.
- What are the best products to use on my clip in hair extensions?
Wash your hair extensions with the 100% sulfate-free shampoo that’s specially designed for hair extensions. This is the most effective and mildest way to make your extensions stay moisture.
And again, clip-in hair extensions don’t receive any nourishing, natural oils from the scalp like our own tresses do, so it’s best to wash them as infrequently as possible to prevent them from becoming unnecessarily dry.
Always try to stay away from shampoos containing the ingredient “Sulfate”. This causes excessive drying of the hair.
Deep condition after each wash. And always, always apply a heat-protection spray before heat styling. This will extend the life of your extensions when heat styling.
