Hair Extensions FAQ

How long does my own hair need to be to have extensions?
For best results, we recommend that your own hair is at least four inches long.

What is meant by the term ‘virgin hair’?
When hair is described as ‘virgin’, it means that it’s completely unprocessed, free of any hair colour or chemicals, retaining all the cuticles, and in its original healthy state.

What is meant by the term ‘Remy hair’?
‘Remy’ hair extensions guarantee that all the hair’s cuticles remain in the same direction throughout the entire process.

How long will my hair extensions last?
You can wear your hair extensions for a maximum of three months before they will need to be refitted.

Can I style my hair normally?
Yes, you can wash and style your extensions in exactly the same way as you would your own hair.

Can the extensions damage my natural hair?
Damage only ever occurs if the application is poor or incorrect, or if the correct aftercare advice hasn’t been followed. Find out more about the damage-free techniques we use at Arabella Rose, plus our recommendations for aftercare.

Can I go swimming?
Before going swimming, we recommended that you braid your hair or pull it up into a ponytail to keep it from tangling. It’s best to wash your hair after swimming and use a spray-in conditioner.

Why is there shedding when I remove my hair extensions?
Hair sheds naturally on a daily basis. It’s normal to loose up to fifty hairs a day. Hair extensions don’t stop this entirely natural process. The hairs that are shed over a period of time become trapped in the links and released when the extensions are removed.

Can I reuse the hair extensions after they have been removed?
As long as the hair has been well-maintained, it can be re-tipped and applied again many times.
