Frequently Asked Questions About Extensions
How Do You Maintain Human Hair Extensions?
When wearing human hair extensions. You must tend to the hair as if it was your own. Make sure to shampoo the hair at least once a week. When shampooing use a shampoo no higher than pH7. You Do NOT need to massage the hair. Next, Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Just as you would with your natural hair apply conditioner. When applying the conditioner it is best to comb through with a wide tooth comb, starting with the ends working your way up you scalp. After you have washed and conditioned, rinse thoroughly. When the hair is clear of shampoo and conditioner then let it air dry. Repeat this process as many times as needed.
Can I Style & Dye My Extensions?
This is 100% virgin human hair that has not been processed. You can color the hair, however once Virgin Remy hair is treated in any way, it is no longer virgin. Be sure to keep color treated hair conditioned and moisturized.
How Much Hair Do I Need?
A full sew-in weave with Virgin human hair, would need approximately 8 to 10 ounces of hair. We recommend buying 2 packs of hair for lengths 14” to 18”. We recommend 3 packs for lengths 20″or longer. Each bundles weighs 3. 5 ounces. Keep in mind that since the hair is sold by total weight the rule is: “The longer the hair, the shorter the weft.”

What To Do
Make sure to deep condition your hair before you sew hair extensions into it to hydrate it and get it as healthy as possible.You can add essential oils to moisturize the hair and it smell good.
Part your hair on whichever side you prefer. This will be the parting from which all your extensions will extend so choose the location carefully.
First, create 2 braids that will be your “leave out” hair. These braids will be opened after all the extensions have been sewn in to create a more blended and natural effect. These braids should extend all along either side of your parting, your hairline at the front of your face, and all the way along the nape of your neck. The braids do not have to be tight at all. Just enough to stay out of the way.
Create 2 cornrow braids parallel to your leave out braids and your parting, one on either side. These “anchor” braids are where you will stop sewing in your extensions and should be about ½ an inch in width.
Now, braid the rest of your hair in cornrows that go towards the back of your head. Use your rat tail comb to create neat partings and the sectioning clips to move the loose hair out of the way. You can leave the ends of the braids loose if your hair is kinky curly enough to not unravel. Otherwise, you can secure them with hair elastics.
Sew the ends of all your braids to each other, laying them flat against your head.
Now, put on your weave-in cap, placing it just behind the leave out braids at the front and back of your head. This will reduce the strain on your scalp and natural hair.
Thread the C-curve needle with a strand of thread that’s at least the length of your arm.
Take your first weft of hair extensions and lay it all along the nape of your neck. Sew it in by pushing the needle first through the weft, then the cap, and then the braid.
Keep working your way up your head, curving the wefts to slowly align with your parting.
Your last weft of extensions will be sewn into the anchor braids that are parallel to your parting.
Neatly cut off the weave in cap from around your leave in braids.
Open your leave in braids and shake out all your hair to blend them in completely.
Style them in any way you want to finish off the look.
Quick Hairstyles For Less
A bob is the best hairstyle to rock for less! You don’t need long lengths so you save money on extensions and time. Luckily, Luxe Beauty Bar offers bundles starting at $80.

Long Hair Don’t Care
When it comes to length there is no right or wrong. From body wave to straight long hair will FOREVER be in style. When I am looking for a sassy style I normally go for big romantic curls. The ones you see and immediately think of the beach and the wind blowing through your hair. If I am in a rush I often brush it straight down and call it a day. However, my FAVORITE look to wear is the tight wand curls with a gentle finger comb. It gives off those I DIDN’T COME TO PLAY vibes. The I WILL SHUT IT DOWN vibe. The I WILL BECOME YOUR STEP MOM vibes! LOL I truly LOVE how versatile long hair can be. This year step out of the box and try something new. Tag me in your LONG HAIR DON’T CARE looks on social media.
