Frequently Asked Questions
What is Remy hair?
Will my hair start shedding more after I get hair extensions?
Can hair extensions cause damage to my hair?
Hair extensions are harmless to the hair if:
- Your hair extensions are done by the professional using a proper technique;
- Only the highest quality Remy hair and materials are used;
- You follow the maintenance instructions given to you;
- Touch-ups or removal are done on time as recommended by your hair extensionist;
- Removal is done by the professional using a proper technique, not by yourself and not by your friend who watched YouTube tutorials (this is our favourite on the list as it may cause a very serious damage).
Violation of any of these will lead to hair damage.
How long should be my hair before I can get hair extensions?
Which hair extension method is the best?
There is no unique answer to this question. The best extension method should be determined individuality, based on the characteristics of the client's hair and the desired final look.
Can a combination of extension methods be used?
Unfortunately, no. The extension method should be one. Combination of two or more hair extension methods will cause certain discomfort. Every extension method has different maintenance. Only fusion and Micro/Nano fusion methods can be combined.
What hair type is better?
The answer to this question is individual for every client and depends on their hair structure. We always have hair of different origin in stock. We prefer European and Russian hair because of their brilliant characteristics, such as their extra-long time of wear that allows our hair to be re-used multiple times.

Medical hair loss conditions (such as alopecia/psoriasis/eczema);

Breakage through the first couple of inches of the natural hair;
Excessively greasy hair;
Extremally sensitive scalp skin.

About our methods
Bio (Royal) Hair Extensions
New technologies allow you to have luxurious hair without the consequences that had previous methods of extension. The latest development of Japanese trichologists is bio-extensions on a bio-gel fixation.
A thin-line with hair fixed by bio-gel is set between your hair in rows. This is a nano-technology in the world of extensions, which combines the strength of fixation, and is also very convenient in maintenance.
Bio extensions differ from all other extension methods in their application. The strands are attached starting from the middle back of the head, unlike the previous generation methods that require extensions to be installed from the nape. This allows us to get rid of the transition, the extensions look natural and cannot be recognized even by professionals from the first glance.
The technology is ideal for weakened and thin hair since it does not cause any stress on the hair roots.
At the latest Dubai Beauty Word - the most significant world exhibition, bio-extension method was recognized as the safest. This technology uses European or Russian hair of very high quality.
- The hair can be re-used for touch-ups multiple times and will last a year or more of constant wear time;
- The materials used in the process of attaching the strands guarantee reliable and soft fixation of hair;
- The period between touch-ups is from 4 to 8 weeks, and touch-up appointments take only 1.5 hours
- The area of the bond attachment cannot be felt by touch, you will have no uncomfortable feeling during your sleep;
- After this procedure, you can have the same lifestyle: visit a sauna, swimming pool, swim in the sea, use the usual hair care cosmetics;
- The technology allows you to increase the density, volume and length of the hair without causing them any damage.
We are proud to be the first who started providing bio-extension services to Canadians. Book your consultation today to learn more.
Touch up & Removal
Can I re-use my hair for a touch-up?
When should I come for a touch up?
Can I miss or postpone my touch up or removal appointment?
How will my fusion touch-up happen?
How will my Bio/Tape-in touch-up happen?
Can I take time off from extensions?
Absolutely! If you wish to make time off from your hair extensions, you may come for the removal appointment. Your removed extensions will be given to you. Next time you want to get hair extensions, you may bring your hair back and we will re-tip and re-apply your extensions.
Does your extension remover contain Acetone?
No. Acetone can dry the hair and make it fragile. Our remover is Acetone-free and contains no harsh chemicals. In Fact, our remover contains glycerine and hydrolyzed silk. They protect the hair from breakage by closing the hair cuticle in the places of application. A drop of Keratin, that enhances the remover, softens the bond, so it requires the minimal use of the removing tool. A drop of our remover and 2 soft presses of the removing tool that is all it takes.
What brush can I use?
Soft bristle brush with soft plastic bristles is the best for your hair as it won’t pull on your natural hair and will brush the area near the roots thoroughly, preventing your hair from tangling and accumulating of the buildup. These are our favourite brushes as they give a pleasant scalp massage :)
The detangling brush can be used after a shower, but should not be the only brush you use, as they cannot brush thoroughly the area near the roots.
Wide-tooth combs can be used when the hair is wet.
Hard plastic brushes should be avoided as they will pull on your hair and cause your hair the damage.
How do I brush my hair?
When you brush your hair, you should always brush the ends of your extensions first. Be gentle with your hair. Work your way toward the link/bonds, brushing in a downward motion. You may also want to support your bonds by holding your hair like that. This will prevent you from pulling on your hair.
You should always brush your hair before the bedtime and first thing in the morning. It will prevent your hair from tangling and will improve its appearance.
What Shampoo & Conditioner can I use?
You can use Sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner.
How to wash my extensions?
Lather shampoo at the scalp. Gently lather through the lengths of the extensions (do not aggressively rub through extensions, unless needed from buildup). Rinse hair as usual. Condition below the bonds on the lengths of the extensions only. Avoid the bond area, conditioner can weaken the bonds when applied directly on the bonds (causing shedding and deterioration of the extensions). Rinse hair as usual.
Tip #1: As a general rule, the fewer times you wash, the longer the extensions will last you. 1-2 washes a week is ideal. Dry shampoo is recommended to keep oil under control.
Tip #2: If washing frequently, be sure to use a mild or sulphate-free shampoo to prevent hair from drying out.
Tip #3: If you use purple shampoo, DO NOT get it on the bonds, as it can cause the bonds to breakdown. Also, do not leave the purple shampoo on your hair for too long as your hair extensions may turn out too gray and become dry.
How do I dry my extensions?
You can allow your hair to air dry or blow dry it.
Tip: If you like to air dry your hair, be sure to blow dry the scalp (bond area) on the cold or medium heat setting until completely dry and then allow the lengths to dry naturally on their own. The #1 cause of matting is allowing the bond area to remain damp or going to bed with wet hair.
Can I use hot tools to style my hair?
Yes, you can! Our hair 100% human hair. Straighteners, curling irons and hot rollers can be used as usual but be sure to avoid touching the bonds with extreme heat.
How do I sleep with my extensions?
Before going to sleep, tie back your hair or make a braid. Make sure it is loose. This will prevent unnecessary pulling and tugging while you sleep.
Never sleep in wet hair. Sleeping with damp hair will cause matting!
Can I use products on my extensions?
Yes, you can.
You will want to use a heat protectant spray if you heat style your extensions regularly.
Using smoothing oil on the ends of the hair extensions will ensure they stay nice and soft.
You can use hairspray, leave-in spray conditioner, dry shampoo, and so on.
TIP: DO NOT get any oil-based or silicone-containing products on the bonds.
My scalp is itching, why?
It is normal for your scalp to be itchy the first 1-2 weeks. Your scalp is adjusting to more hair and may feel a bit dry at first. This will fade.
It may take a couple nights to get used to the feeling of the extensions.
If you have your extensions for more than 1 or 2 weeks and your scalp is itching, make sure you rinse your hair thoroughly in the root area when you wash it. The remains of the shampoo may irritate your scalp, making it itch.
