What does Remy (Remi) mean?
Remy (or Remi) hair extensions are considered to be the best hair extensions available due to the quality of the hair as well as the craftsmanship. The key element being that the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped. Preserving the hairs cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance and texture. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.

What is Virgin hair?
Virgin Remy hair refers to hair that has been completely unprocessed. For extensions to qualify as virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, coloured, bleached and/or chemically processed in any way! It also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are completely intact, running in the same direction. It also means that the hair has not been blow-dried, or exposed to harsh agents such as cigarette smoke and drugs. This hair is extremely expensive, if it isn't expensive then question the supplier.

- Start by parting the section of your hair in line with your earlobes.
- Open the clips and attach them close to the roots as possible starting with the middle clip.

How long will they last?
The lifespan of your Clipinhair Extensions will depend on how well you look after them. The expected lifespan of our hair extensions is 4 months to a year. This is dependent on how often you wear them and how well you look after them.
How do I wash your Clipinhair Extensions
Clipinhair should be washed every 10-20 wears or when the hair has a built up of products and they become unmanageable to style.
Can I colour them?
You can dye your extensions, but bleaching them is not recommended. It is definitely preferable to not alter the colour AT ALL as colouring them can shorten the lifespan of them. Colouring your own hair can be damaging, just the same, they can also damange your Clipinhair. Choosing the correct colour from the start is important allowing you to not have to dye them in the first place. However, Clipinhair extensions have already undergone a chemical process but are designed to accept color change. We recommend getting them colored at a professional and experienced hair colorist who has previous experience working with hair extensions. Contact us and we can refer someone in your area. We would advice for a one clip weft to be tested prior to coloring the full set to make sure the resulting shade is what you anticipate. We also recommend using a semi-permanent color as it is much more gentle on the hair extensions. We do not recommend getting hair extensions colored in a lighter shade, as it will require them to be bleached. Bleaching is a very harsh and harmful chemical process which will alter the quality of your hair extensions.
Should I choose the wavy set or the straight set?
Both these options have their perks, but if this is your first set of Clipinhair Extensions and your hair is naturally straight, or you straighten it most mornings, then we recommend going for the straight set. For those with naturally wavy hair, our wavy extensions are perfect for you. You won’t need much styling, just clip in and go! You are able to curl the straight ones and straightening the wavy ones, should you wish. If you have already purchased a straight set you can always purchase a wavy set for days when you feel like a quick and easy change.
