FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What colors are available?
You will love the wide variety of hues from which you can choose, ranging from deep brunettes to warm blondes and even pinks, blues, teals and other fantasy colors. Colors can be combined to create custom color combinations. You can opt for a shade that matches your natural hair or you can choose a shade lighter or darker to give your hair multi-dimensional depth and natural highlights and lowlights without a chemical process. Also, since Babe extensions are created from 100% human hair, your hair can be colored using one of our high quality L’Oreal color services at iLLustria.
How do I care for my extensions?
You can do basically anything that you would do with your own hair. This means curling, blow drying, and using heat tools such flat irons and curling irons for styling. When you do use heat tools, be sure to apply a heat protectant to protect your hair, and try not to use heat tools too often. Too much heat can dry and damage your extensions.
For cleansing, we recommend that you always use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Sulfates are harsh cleansing agents that can strip moisture and shine even from your natural hair, and they can be particularly drying to extensions. Just like your natural hair, extensions need nourishment and conditioning to remain healthy. Using a good quality moisturizing shampoo and leave-in conditioner will keep your hair soft, shiny, manageable and looking gorgeous.
For best results, we recommend washing your hair as infrequently as possible and using a dry shampoo to absorb oils and make your hair feel and smell fresh. One of our stylists will be happy to help you select the perfect hair care products at your appointment.
How do I brush my hair?
We highly recommend using a hair extension brush created specifically for extensions. Brushes that you purchase from a department store will not provide the same results. A hair extension brush prevents tangling and is specially designed so it won’t pull or catch on the application points.
For best results, brush 2 to 3 times a day and before showering or wetting your hair. Hold the roots of your hair with one hand while brushing in a downward motion with the other. Brush gently, and be particularly careful when brushing near the point of attachment.
Can extensions be colored?
Yes they can! If you would like to have your hair colored, our color specialists will be happy to help you select the perfect hue. We can choose a semi- or demi- permanent hair color from our L’Oreal line of professional color formulas to deliver gorgeous results. We suggest keeping your color within two shades of the original color of the extensions.
Can I perm my hair?
Babe extensions are 100% human remy hair, so they can be permed. However, they must be permed with extreme care and caution. Perms can add stress to your extensions, which is why we generally don’t recommend perming them. Babe does offers a selection of wavy extensions if you are seeking a wavier style. However, if you want to try perming, the process always should be done by a trained, licensed stylist from our salon.
Is there anything that I should avoid?
Yes. If possible, avoid salt water and chlorinated water. Salt and chlorine can harm your hair extensions just as they can harm your natural hair.
Another thing to avoid is going to sleep with wet hair. Once your hair is completely dry, braid or tie it in a loose ponytail. This will keep it from tangling as you sleep.
