FREQUENTLY ASKED

  • How soon will I need a maintenance service?
    The frequency of maintenance required for your hair extensions depends on the specific type of extensions you have, as well as your own hair growth and lifestyle. Generally, clip-in extensions can be removed and re-installed as needed, with regular washing and styling. However, more permanent types of extensions such as tape-ins, sew-ins or bonded extensions need to be maintained more regularly. As a general rule, you will likely need to have your hair extensions maintained every 4-8 weeks, depending on the rate of your natural hair growth. During maintenance appointments, your hair stylist will check the condition of your extensions, make any necessary adjustments or replacements, and re-install any pieces that may have come loose. They will also provide you with guidance on how to care for your extensions at home, including recommended washing, styling, and brushing techniques. It's important to follow your stylist's maintenance recommendations to ensure the longevity of your extensions and prevent any potential damage to your natural hair. Regular maintenance will help to keep your extensions looking natural, comfortable, and perfectly blended with your natural hair for a flawless, seamless look every time.

  • What breaks down the bonding?
    Hair extension bonds, which are the materials or substances used to attach the extensions to your natural hair, are typically designed to withstand regular wear and tear. However, certain factors can contribute to the breakdown of these bonds, leading to damage to your extensions. One of the most common culprits of extension bond breakdown is exposure to moisture. This includes everything from sweating during exercise to swimming or heavy rain, as moisture can seep into the bond and cause it to loosen or break down over time. This can result in shedding of the extensions. Another factor that can contribute to the breakdown of hair extension bonds is excessive heat styling. Blow-drying, straightening, or curling your extensions at high temperatures can cause the bond to become brittle and break or loosen over time. This can also result in damage to your natural hair, as repeated heat styling can weaken or break the strands. Chemical treatments such as coloring or perming can also contribute to the breakdown of extension bonds. Harsh chemicals in coloring or perming solutions can weaken or damage the bond, leading to shedding or breakage of the extensions. It's important to follow your stylist's recommendations for care and maintenance of your hair extensions, which can help to prevent the breakdown of bonds and ensure the longevity of your extensions. Avoiding excessive moisture, heat styling, and chemical treatments can help to prevent damage to both the extensions and your natural hair.
  • How much will this cost me?
    The price range for hair extensions can vary widely depending on several factors such as the quality, type, length, and method of application of the extensions. Typically, more expensive extensions tend to be made of higher quality materials and last longer than cheaper ones, ranging anywhere from $160- $3,300. Other factors that can contribute to the cost of extensions include the cost of the initial consultation and installation, the necessary maintenance and upkeep, and any additional services such as color matching or custom styling. It's important to work with a reputable, experienced stylist who can provide you with a detailed breakdown of the pricing for your desired extension method and help you choose the best options within your budget. Overall, while some types of extensions may seem expensive, they can offer a long-lasting and transformative benefit to your appearance if properly maintained and cared for.
  • Can I wash my hair?
    Yes, you wash and maintain your hair as usual. some added steps will be explained to you during your consultation.
  • Do I have to use special product?
    YES! Using the right hair care products is essential to maintaining the condition and longevity of your hair extensions. Hair extensions, particularly synthetic or keratin bonded ones, can’t replenish their natural oils like your real hair, so they require specific, safe, and high-quality products for them. The use of the incorrect hair care products may damage or weaken the bond of the extensions, causing them to slip or completely fall off, which can damage your real hair in the process. Additionally, it can lead to dryness, tangling, or fading of the extensions, ultimately affecting their appearance and overall durability. Using sulfates, exfoliants, or too much alcohol in hair products, can strip them of their natural moisture, causing them to become dry and brittle, which can again lead to breakage or shedding. Also, some hair products may contain ingredients that will cause the extensions to slip, shed or tangle, such as thick oils, heavy conditioners, or serums, making utilizing haircare brands specially focused on extensions are a necessity. By using the right products that have been specifically formulated for hair extensions, you can help to maintain their quality, color, and texture. Some of the recommended hair care products for extensions include gentle shampoos, lightweight conditioners, serums, and detangling sprays that cater to extensions specifically. Using specialized products formulated for extensions will also help to protect the bond of the extensions and prevent damage to your natural hair. By taking good care of your hair extensions and using the right hair care products, you can ensure they look and feel great for as long as possible. We highly recommend our Iles Formula Hair line to maintain the integrity of the hair and to maintain the longevity. K-18 is also recommended as a routine treatment.

With proper installation and care, the feeling of hair extensions on your head can be minimal and ultimately worth it for the added length and volume they provide to your natural hair.

  • Whats the difference between Eastern European Virgin Hair and Remy Hair?
    SN1 only uses European Virgin Hair for all our product lines. There is a lot of misinformation surrounding these two very important terms. The difference between the two are the lifespan, Natural Fall, Color Deposit, Resiliency and Manageability. Virgin hair is a superior quality hair than Remy Hair. Virgin Hair: Virgin hair comes from a single health donor. It is naturally Remy, because the cuticles are naturally aligned. That's how the hair grows naturally on your own head so there is no need to have factory workers to manually align the cuticles. Virgin hair falls the most natural, can accept color deposits better, holds textures longer and over all lifespan then Remy Hair. Our hair is also sealed with a silicone allowing the hair to be protected from Uv rays, hot tools, hard water and color fading. Remy Hair: Remy hair comes form several different donors and the cuticles are aligned manually by factory workers. It is not naturally aligned and not every head of hair is compatible with another head of hair. There is no way to tell how each donors hair will react unless you wear them. When the hair extensions tangle, or you have sections that perform differently its because there are multiple donors in that pack.
