It is possible to fit extensions in shorter hair, particularly clip in extensions for temporary use, however for a natural look we would advise to follow the guidance above.[/toggle]

[toggle title_open=”Can I dye the extensions?” title_closed=”Can I dye the extensions?” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]As our hair is 100% human it can be dyed, however we would advise that you follow the same precautions adopted when dying your own hair.  We would not recommend dying the extensions more than 2 shades darker or lighter, and to ensure an even colour is achieved we would advise you to completely saturate the hair.  You may require more hair dye than you usually would to ensure an even coverage, therefore if you usually use 1 box of hair dye, we would advise you to purchase 2.
We would not recommend using a bleaching agent on the extensions as this may cause damage to the extensions as well as your own hair.
SimplyHair cannot be held responsible for the affect dyeing the extensions has on your own hair or the extension hair, and you do this at your own risk.[/toggle]

To avoid knotty hair we would advise you to sleep with your hair plaited.[/toggle]

[toggle title_open=”What are Micro Rings?” title_closed=”What are Micro Rings?” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]icro rings are small undetectable (usually aluminium) attachments used to secure the hair extension to the hair.  Micro rings come in many forms from copper tubes, to silicone lined, all offering different benefits to the wearer.  In our experience, the most secure form of micro ring are the copper tubes as these work great for thick and thin hair, and are incredibly small.[/toggle]

[toggle title_open=”What does Pre Bonded mean?” title_closed=”What does Pre Bonded mean?” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]The term prebonded traditionally refers to nail tip extensions but is sometimes also applied to micro ring extensions.  Essentially, the term pre bonded refers to the fact that the extensions come in individually sealed strands rather than a weft (see below for weft).  This means the Keratin (see below for Keratin) has already been applied, and you will need to use a heat connector, or micro ring to attach the extension to the hair.  When you see the term pre bonded,  it is most likely that they are referring to a Keratin nail tip attachment and not a stick tip attachment used for micro rings.[/toggle]

[toggle title_open=”WWhat is Remy/Virgin Hair?” title_closed=”What is Remy/Virgin Hair?” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]Remy or Virgin hair is generally considered the best type of human hair to use for hair extensions as the hair is unprocessed and untouched, and has not been subjected to a chemical process.  Remy hair does not tangle as the cuticles are aligned and intact without the use of silicone.  In cheaper, non remy hair types where the cuticle is not aligned, the hair will matt and become unmanageable very quickly.[/toggle]

[toggle title_open=”What is Keratin?” title_closed=”What is Keratin?” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]Keratin is an extremely strong protein that forms a major component in skin, hair, nails, and teeth.  This natural glue like substance is safe to use with human hair, however needs to be looked after.  When melted Keratin meets a high temperature before it cools and hardens, therefore it is important to use the correct equipment to avoid any harm to the technician or the wearer[/toggle]

[toggle title_open=”I am allergic to some metals, can I still have micro ring hair extensions?” title_closed=”I am allergic to some metals, can I still have micro ring hair extensions?” hide=”yes” border=”yes” style=”default” excerpt_length=”0″ read_more_text=”Read More” read_less_text=”Read Less” include_excerpt_html=”no”]Micro ring hair extensions, including copper tubes and nano rings are secured using a metal fitting, and therefore those with metal sensitivities or allergies should be aware of this before the fitting takes place.  Reactions to metals are usually very mild, and are only prevalent whilst the material is in contact with the skin, therefore once the extensions loosen slightly and are awary from the scalp, any form of reaction that can include redness or itching should subside, however for more detailed information on metal allergies please click here.[/toggle]
