10 Common Questions about Clip In Hair Extensions Answered by Jadore Australia Hair Extensions Pros
Clip In hair extensions are the preferred choice for adding colour, volume and length to your natural hair. They can revolutionise your look by giving you fuller and longer hair in a matter of minutes! Here at Jadore, we often get questions about hair care, and hair extensions, (especially our popular clip in extensions). So we’ve answered the most common questions below.
With these guidelines, you can get extensions that last longer, look incredible, and better match your lifestyle.
Q. WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HUMAN HAIR AND SYNTHETIC HAIR?
Extensions that have been made from human hair can be styled, straightened, curled, dyed and treated just like your natural hair; whereas extensions that are made from synthetic hair cannot stand high heat. It can also be challenging to blend synthetic extensions in with your natural hair because they tend to have a frizzy, weighed down appearance and they don’t last as long as human hair.
Q. WHAT ARE REMY HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Remy hair is the highest grade of human hair on the market and is the number one choice for hair extensions as it provides the most natural look. Remy hair lasts longer, preserves shine and vitality, and is much easier to maintain than synthetic hair.
Q. WHAT SHOULD I LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING CLIP IN HAIR EXTENSIONS?
Remy hair is one of the most important factors to look for when buying hair extensions, but it certainly isn’t the only thing that you should be looking for; you should also consider the following:
How is the hair processed and coloured?
Do the clips match the colour of your natural hair?
Is the thickness the same from top to bottom?
Q. WHAT ARE CLIP IN EXTENSIONS?
Clip in hair extensions are a fast solution used to provide a prompt transformation to your hair and are easily applied in just a few minutes without the help of a professional hairstylist. There is no long-term glue or bonding required, and they cause absolutely no damage to your real hair. Clip ins can be used to add length, colour and volume to your natural hair; and are the quickest and most versatile way to improve the look of your hair without harming your real hair.
Q. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO APPLY CLIP INS TO MY HAIR?
Clip in extensions take no more than 5 minutes to apply and just 60 seconds to remove. They are incredibly easy to use and are the fastest and easiest way to improve your look in a matter of minutes.
Q. CAN JADORE CLIP IN HAIR EXTENSIONS BE COLOURED?
As we offer such an extensive selection of shades, we do not recommend colouring the hair extensions unless it is necessary. All of our hair extensions have already endured a colour processing thus, further colouring may cause damage to the hair.
If you do need to colour the hair to achieve an exact match, we suggest having your clip in extensions professionally coloured by a hairstylist who has experience with colouring hair extensions. We also suggest that a test sample is coloured first on a small section of the extension weft to ensure that you achieve your desired colour results. Hair extensions should only ever be coloured darker, not lighter.
Q. HOW DO I WASH JADORE CLIP IN EXTENSIONS?
Clip in extensions can collect residue over time, just like your real hair. Although this doesn’t necessarily mean that your extensions need to be thoroughly washed after every wear. To maintain the condition of your extensions, we recommend washing them every 5th-10th wear.
1) Before you wash your extensions, thoroughly brush them first to make sure there are no tangles.
2) Gently separate each piece and rinse them with lukewarm water.
3) Place a dollop of shampoo specially formulated for treated hair in the palm of your hand.
4) Carefully lather the shampoo into the hair to make sure that you work with one piece at a time. Do not scrub, rub or twist the hair. Carefully is the key word to remember here!
5) The shampoo should be applied to the hair in a downward motion from the top down to the ends.
6) After you’ve lathered, rinse the hair under lukewarm water until all the shampoo is removed.
7) Apply the conditioner and leave it in for about 5 minutes and then rinse.
8) Repeat with each piece in the set.
We also advise our clients on applying a nourishing treatment every month or two.
Q. WILL I BE ABLE TO GO TO SLEEP WITH JADORE CLIP IN EXTENSIONS?
It’s best if you take your extensions out before going to bed, as you toss and turn in your sleep, the clips pull at your natural hair and can cause your extensions to tangle.
Q. DO I HAVE TO TAKE OUT MY JADORE CLIP IN EXTENSIONS WHEN I GO SWIMMING?
Not at all! When swimming with your extensions in, be sure that your hair is tied into a ponytail. Do not put the extensions in a bun as this can create severe tangling in your natural hair and your extensions. Salt water and chlorine can dry out your hair extensions, so remember to wash your hair right after swimming.
Q. HOW DO I STORE JADORE CLIP IN EXTENSIONS?
We recommend storing your extensions in our clip in set storage bag and hanger to keep your extensions well protected and perfect for their next wear! The hanger allows you to quickly and safely store your clip in set keeping the hair perfect without having to worry about any tangles.
