How long do they last?

The lifespan of your Truth or Hair Clip in Extensions is between 6 months to a 2 years, depending on usage and how well you look after them. Daily wear, the use of heated styling tools, and frequent washing all contribute to the wear and tear of your extensions. To help extend longevity of your extensions we advise that you do not sleep with your hair extensions in, always using salon-grade heat protectant sprays, and only washing your extensions every 10 – 20 wears. We have had customers tell us they have had their sets for two years, and it still looks perfect.

How do I attach my Clip in hair Extensions?

  • Start by parting the section of your hair in line with your earlobes.
  • Open the clips and attach them as close to the roots as possible; starting with the middle clip.
  • Repeat steps 1 through 3 at different partings of your hair; starting at the lower half of your head and working your way up. Follow your hairline and be sure to balance them out evenly. You may need one or two practice rounds, but once you get it, it should only take a few minutes.
  • Your extensions should feel secure and will not come out until you unclip them.
  • NEVER try to slide the extensions off without first opening the clip.

How do I put in Clip in Bangs?

Clip in Bangs are simple and easy to use. You just need to unclip the clips and slide the bangs in at the top of your head. Spend some time playing with them to get them at the right length, and frame for your face. We have made them a little longer so that you can trim the ends to suit your specific needs and frame of your face. Once you’ve got them in the way you want them, blend them into your hair. We recommend wearing a headband with the bangs to hide any possible join which may be visible. Remember to always unclip the clips before taking the bangs out. Never sleep with the bangs in, as this could damage them.

How often do I wash them?

Your Clip in hair Extensions should ONLY be washed every 10-20 wears, or when the hair has a build of products and have become unmanageable to style.

Tip: Airing out your extensions is often all you need to keep them clean. You can use a little Argan hair oil (available in our hair care section) to keep them smelling fresh and feeling soft 🙂

Read our full return policy.

Can I colour them?

It’s preferable that you choose the correct colour extensions from the beginning, as they have already undergone a chemical process to get them to that specific colour. However, they can be coloured a darker shade, but not lighter, and bleaching them is not recommended. Be aware that colouring your extensions will shorten their lifespan considerably.

If you do opt to dye your extensions, we recommend getting them colored at a professional who has had previous experience working with hair extensions.

We advise testing a one clip weft prior to coloring the full set to ensure the results are the shade you anticipated. We also recommend using a semi-permanent color, as it is far gentler on the hair extensions. We do not recommend lightening your Clip in hair Extensions, 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 and could potentially severely damage them.

Are they comfortable to wear?

Clip in hair extensions are designed to be non-intrusive. The small clips are able to be firmly attached without pulling on your hair or causing irritation to your scalp. Your extensions should be taken out before you go to bed, to ensure that they don’t get tangled. No damage is caused to your own hair when wearing Clip in hair Extensions.

What does Remy (Remi) mean?

Remy (or Remi) hair extensions are made of real human hair, and are considered to be the highest quality hair extensions available. This is because the utmost care is taken when they are being created. The key element to their quality is 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.
