- CAN I SWIM IN MY HAIRBYTMARIE EXTENSIONS?
Yes. We recommend you to wear a swim cap and wash your hair right after swimming to maintain & keep minimal possible harshness from exposure to chlorine and/or salt that will make the hair possibly dry; depending on the level of exposure, just as it would our own hair. If you don’t have a swim cap, we suggest that you put your hair in a braided bun
-HOW MANY BUNDLES WILL I NEED?
The key to determining how many bundles to purchase depends on the lengths you are wanting. The longer bundles have a shorter weft/track as the shorter bundles have longer wefts-tracks.
For a full sew in ,lengths 14-16 we recommend at LEAST 2 bundles, lengths 18-22 we recommend at LEAST 3 bundles and for lengths 22inches and above we recommend 4 bundles.
-WILL THE HAIR SHED?
There will be VERY minimal shedding for example , just like shedding of your own natural hair. Note that no hair is absolutely perfect, *any company who states (There is NO SHEDDING AT ALL) uses this phrase as a sales pitch and is not being honest. Our hair is reinforced machine wefted ,to minimize shedding to nearly none. You may see a few strands here or there, but nothing troubling.
-CAN I DYE MY HAIR?
Any chemical processes should be done by a professional or at least consulted by one. This purchase is an investment for you and chemically altering the hair can possibly damage it. Though, our virgin hair extensions can handle a coloring process very well, please be cautious. Once the hair is chemically altered incorrectly, the cuticle can become damaged and overexposed causing fraying, breakage, dryness, and tangling. This in turn will affect the overall look and feel of your HairbyTMarie bundles. Chemical damage has no reverse button.
-CAN THE HAIR BE STRAIGHTEN OR CURLED?
Your new virgin hair extensions can be treated as if it is your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will. Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protectant product before applying any heat to your hair.
-HOW TO MEASURE THE LENGTH OF YOUR HAIR?
Each texture must be measured differently. Our virgin straight hair can be measured by the natural eye from the top of the weft to the ends of the bundle. Our curly textures must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
-CAN I APPLY OIL TO MY EXTENSIONS?
Yes. But we recommend that you use you very small amount of oil, too much oil can weigh down the hair .We suggest a small amount of Moroccan oil or argan oil.
-WHAT DOES CO-WASH/CO-WASHING MEAN ?
Co-washing means conditioner washing. (only use conditioner,not shampoo) We recommend a co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs.
