WHAT ARE THE LEAST DAMAGING HAIR EXTENSIONS?

The safest and least damaging type of extensions that you can use are Clip in hair extensions. They are number one in terms of hair safety. When you are wearing Clip-In Extensions, there isn’t permanent pulling or stress on your natural hair. It is because they’re attached temporarily, using small clips either around the parameter of one piece or on individual extensions.

Wefts, or sew-in extensions are number two in this list of least damaging hair extensions. As wefts are applied by the extension being sewn into a tiny braid, there may be limited stress on your natural hair.

At The Hair Real, we exclusively sell clip in and weft extensions made with 100% Single Donor Human Hair authentically sourced from the temples of south India. The clips we use are a safe and secure way to attach your clip in extensions, made to protect the natural hair from tension and damage.

WHAT HAIR EXTENSIONS CAUSE THE MOST DAMAGE?

The most damaging type of hair extensions are Synthetic Hair Extensions.

That is because, Synthetic Hair Extensions are often made with heavy plastics, which can cause heat on the hair follicles and cause breakage at the root. They’re also commonly known to cause headaches due to their toxicity.

DO CLIP IN EXTENSIONS DAMAGE YOUR HAIR?

Do not sleep, swim or shower with your clip in hair extensions on. Then there is no reason that they would cause any damage.

The advantage of using clip in extensions is that they are quick and easy to attach and remove, so make sure you always unclip them and store them away at night.

It is always better to store your extensions in flat position when not in use.

CAN I WEAR CLIP IN EXTENSIONS EVERY DAY?

Yes! The Hair Real’s clip in extensions can be worn every day, as they are the safest type of hair extensions with least/no damage.

Take a look at our ‘how to apply’ videos, on how to properly attach The Hair Real’s Real Human Hair Clip-In extensions.

HOW DO I WASH MY CLIP IN EXTENSIONS?

Do not wash your clip in extensions still attached to your hair. Remove them to wash!

The following wash routine applies to all our 100% Natural Human Hair Extensions:

  • Brush your extensions to remove any knots or tangles.
  • Fill your sink with warm water and thoroughly wet the extensions.
  • Wash them with a sulphate-free shampoo and rinse.
  • Apply a generous amount of conditioner and work well through the hair, then rinse.

To dry your clip in extensions:

  • Gently pat them dry with a towel, never rub them.
  • Brush them through, using a smoothing or conditioning agent if necessary.
  • All Natural Hair Extensions must be dried in sunlight. Avoid using hair dryer.
