Is it natural, human hair?

Can I treat it like my own hair with hot styling tools?

When you’re on the hunt for great quality extensions, the first thing you want to know is what they’re made out of.

You’ve probably seen the words ‘Remy Hair’ floating around the internet.

And there’s a 8/10 chance you’ve thought:

“What are Remy Hair extensions?”

So I’m going to tell you everything you need to know about Remy Hair.

Right here, right now. 

 

Q: What is Remy Hair?

Remy Hair is real, natural human hair.

So why is it called Remy Hair?

Remy is the process of preserving the human hair, so that the colour stays vivid and the hair stays looking shiny and soft.

All our Sitting Pretty Halos are made from European 100% Remy Hair.

Why is Remy Hair the best type of hair for extensions?

Many reasons.

When you’re looking for hair extensions;

Obviously, you want hair that looks as natural as your own.

Being human hair, Remy Hair looks the most realistic and will completely blend with your natural locks.

Remy Hair also means it’s soft, long-lasting, and easy to work with.

You can treat it like your own hair and use hot styling tools without damaging the extensions.

Q: Does Remy Hair shed or fall out?

Unlike your fluffy pet or your vintage-inspired shaggy rug, no our Remy Hair Halos don’t shed.

We can’t speak for all Remy Hair extensions...

But the quality stitching of our wefts means the Sitting Pretty Halo Hair is pretty damn secure.

With the exception of a few stray hairs.

Even your real hair sheds a few strays every now and then.

It’s all natural babe.

 

Q: Can you wash Remy Hair extensions?

Yes.

Just like your own hair, you can wash your Remy Hair with shampoo and conditioner.

When you first get your Halo, you should only spray it with water before the first wear.

Our Remy Halo Hair extensions come industrially straightened, so wetting them will allow them to get their natural volume back.

After that, it’s good to give your Halo a wash every 3 months.

This will make them last longer.

Q: Can you use hairspray or other hair products on Remy Hair?

You can, but keep in mind you don’t really need to.

When you curl the Halo, they won’t fall out as they might in your natural hair.

If needed;

You might want to spray your real hair with hairspray before putting in the Halo.

Remember that putting products in your Halo will mean you need to wash it more often.

And too many washes may decrease the lifespan of the Halo.

  

Q: Can you colour Remy Hair Extensions?

You can 100% colour your Remy Hair Extensions.

Many of our SP babes do.

Balayage it.

Ombré it.

Tone it.

Dye it pastel pink if you want.

The only thing you shouldn’t do is bleach it.

But other than that, go for your life!

If you’re confident with colouring, you can even colour your Remy hair right in your own home like our girl Shannon:
