about clip in extensions
Q. How long does my own hair need to be to use clip in extensions?
For best results, your hair should reach at least the nape of your neck for the extensions to blend in seamlessly.
Q. What is the difference between synthetic and human hair extensions?
Hair extensions made from human hair can be dyed, curled, straightened, styled and treated like your own natural hair. They are the most versatile and definitely the best choice when investing in hair extensions. Hair extensions made from synthetic hair cannot be styled with high heat, don't last as long as human hair and are difficult to blend in with your natural hair as they tend to have a heavy, frizzy appearance.
Q. How are Hair Secrets extensions colored?
Like all hair extensions, Hair Secrets extensions are dyed from their original color to achieve the large selection of shades we have to offer.
While some other brands of extensions color the hair in one, harsh session (stripping from black straight to blonde!), Hair Secrets extensions are gradually lightened over an 8 day coloring process. This ensures the least possible damage to the hair and provides a super silky final result.
Q. Is Remy hair the only thing to look for when purchasing hair extensions?
No. Although remy hair is an important factor when purchasing extensions, it certainly isn't the only thing to look for.
Other important points to find out are how the hair is colored and processed, is the thickness the same from top to bottom, do the clips match the color of hair, etc.
Q. What is Remy hair?
Remy hair is the highest grade of human hair available and is a preferred choice for hair extensions because it achieves the most natural look.
Remy Hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and the cuticles all run in the same direction.
When the hair is collected from the donor, the hair is tied and the direction of the hair is preserved. As the cuticle runs in one direction as on a natural head of hair, it is less likely to tangle.
Remy hair lasts longer, keeps vitality and shine, and is easier to maintain.
Q. What is the difference between the Ultimate Volume and For Fine Hair clip in hair extensions?
The difference between the two sets is the number of pieces and the thickness.
The Ultimate Volume set includes 7 pieces of varying widths and is used to add over the top volume aswell as length. This set blends well with those with naturally thick hair but also adds full volume to all other hair types.
Our Fine Hair set includes 5 pieces and is suitable if your hair is fine to medium and you are looking to add only moderate volume aswell as length.
If you are unsure which set to go for, then we recommend the Ultimate Volume set. It is better to have too much hair than to have too little. Any unworn pieces can be stored away and used at a later time. Both sets are 20" in length and are made using our superior quality 100% natural human hair.
Q. What are clip in hair extensions?
Clip in hair extensions are a quick solution used to provide immediate transformation and can be easily applied in minutes without the help of a hair stylist.
They require no long term bonding or glues and cause virtually no damage to your natural hair.
Clip in extensions can be used to extend the length of your hair, provide more volume, or add highlights or lowlights to your natural hair. They are by far the quickest and most versatile way to enhance the look of your hair without damaging your natural hair.
Q. What makes Hair Secrets clip in extensions so different from the rest?
Hair Secrets extensions are made using premium 100% natural remy human hair of the highest calibre. Our hair extensions undergo extensive manual processing to ensure that all shorter hairs are removed, and that the thickness stays the same from top to bottom. No more thin, wispy ends!

clip in extension usage & care
Q. What products should I use on Hair Secrets clip in extensions?
Choose salon quality products that are specifically formulated for color treated hair, as they will help keep the extensions soft and shiny.
Q. How do I wash Hair Secrets clip in extensions?
Over time, clip in extensions will accumulate residue just like your natural hair. This does not mean the extensions need to be washed after each wear. To keep the extensions in optimal condition, we recommend washing every 5th-10th wear.
The extensions should be washed in a tub or sink (they should not be washed while clipped in your natural hair in the shower!)
1) Before washing, thoroughly brush the extensions to ensure there are no tangles.
2) Carefully rinse each piece seperately with luke warm water.
3) Place a small amount of shampoo specifically formulated for treated hair in the palm of your hand.
4) Gently lather the shampoo into the hair ensuring you work with one piece at a time. Do not twist, rub or scrub the hair. Gentle is the word to keep in mind!
5) The shampoo should be applied the hair in a downwards motion from the top of the extensions, down to the ends.
6) After lathering, rinse the hair thoroughly under lukewarm water until all shampoo is completely removed.
7) Apply conditioner, leave for 5 minutes and rinse.
8) Repeat with remaining pieces in the set.
We also recommend the use of a nourishing treatment every month or so. This will ensure your hair extensions remain in optimal condition.
Q. Is it normal for some hair dye to bleed when I wash Hair Secrets clip in extensions?
Yes. Hair Secrets extensions have been colored just prior to being packaged, so hair color dyes might bleed the first few times you wash your hair extensions. This is completely normal as it is the hair dye residue from the coloring process.
Q. Can Hair Secrets clip in extensions be colored?
As we offer such an extensive selection of shades, we do not recommend coloring the hair extensions unless it is absolutely necessary. All hair extensions have already undergone a color processing, so further coloring may cause damage of the hair.
If you do need to color the hair to achieve an exact match, we recommend having your hair extensions professionally colored by a hairstylist who preferably has experience with coloring hair extensions. We highly recommend that a test sample be colored first on the smallest hair extension weft to make sure you obtain your desired color results. We also recommend using a semi permanent color as it is much more to the hair extensions.
Q. Can I sleep with Hair Secrets clip in extensions?
We do not recommend wearing your clip in extensions to bed, as this may cause tangling and/or damage to the clips.
Q. Can I swim with Hair Secrets clip in extensions?
Yes. When swimming with your hair extensions, ensure your hair is either down or tied into a simply ponytail. Do not put the hair extensions in a bun as this can cause severe tangling with both your extensions and natural hair.
Chlorine and salt water may dry out your hair extensions, so ensure you wash your hair as soon as possible after swimming.

Clip in extensions should be washed every 5-10 wears or when there is excessive build up of styling products on the hair.
