Yes, Luxy Hair extensions are made from single drawn human hair. This is one of the most natural-looking types of extensions as it mimics your natural hair the best. Single drawn hair has a standard hair ratio where the hair contains a combination of varied hair lengths and does not undergo an additional sorting process to pick out shorter hairs. The hair is thick at the top and tapers off at the bottom, similar to how natural hair grows.
Although many of our customers have used color depositing shampoos/conditioners/products with much success, we always recommend having a professional hair colorist who has had experience with extensions custom tone your Luxies using a professional toner.
Please keep in mind that purple shampoo will balance out the golden undertones from the Ash Blonde and Bleach Blonde shades and make it cooler, however, depending on your tone of blonde, this may not be the best alternative to making your extensions match better to your hair color. Since there are many different variations of cool-toned blonde shades, this is why we recommend having your set professionally toned to achieve a more seamless match.
Also, we don’t recommend purple shampooing the Dirty Blonde shade as it will most likely not create a fully cool-toned medium blonde color. Instead, it may remove some of the brassiness. If you are looking for a dramatic difference, we recommend having this shade professionally toned.
So, you have a beautiful and unique hair color that doesn't quite match any of the shades we offer. No stress! Luxy Hair extensions are made of 100% remy human hair and can, therefore, be dyed a darker color or toned by a professional hair colorist.
Remy hair is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-remy hair extensions. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.
Luxy Hair extensions use only the finest quality of remy human hair, which means that the hair has been carefully sorted after collecting from the hair donor to ensure all the cuticles are of the same length. It is by far the best quality of clip in human hair extensions on the market because of the care that is required and the time it takes to sort the hair so meticulously. Click here to see how and where our products are made.
Being super careful with how your hair extensions are dyed is very important to ensuring the quality of your set is preserved. Naturally, dyeing or toning hair extensions can alter the quality of the set slightly, however, we'll provide you with the most important do's and don't's of dyeing your extensions to ensure your set lives a long and healthy life.
Kindly note, since our Seamless extensions are made with silicone at the base to ensure that they are thin and flat, this material does not take to dye. If you dye your Seamless extensions, the silicone strip will remain its original color after dyeing. Alternatively, our Classic extensions have a fabric base which can be dyed as it will take to the color.
Kindly note, dyeing or toning your hair extensions may alter the structure of the hair, resulting in a lowered lifespan. Dyeing and toning Luxy Hair extensions is done at the customer's discretion. Although many of our customers have used these products with lots of success, we are not responsible and can not accept any returns or exchanges on hair extensions that have been treated with dye, toner, or any color depositing shampoos/conditioners/products. Also, we will be unable to provide an exchange or refund for sets that have been damaged due to bleaching

If you're new to the world of clip-in hair extensions and are looking to figure out how to choose between our Classic and Seamless hair extensions, you've come to the right place. In this support article, we'll clarify the difference between these two collections so you can make a confident buying decision.
Our Classic extensions are the first type of clip-in hair extensions that Luxy Hair designed and launched. They are made of a fabric-stitched weft and are offered in a variety of different weights to cater to every hair type.
Our Classic Collection is good for you if:
Our Seamless extensions are a part of a new collection Luxy Hair launched in 2017. They're similar to our 160 gram Classic set, however, they have more hair attached to each weft making the full set slightly thicker. They are made with a thin silicone-based weft that is 50% thinner than our Classic fabric-stitched wefts.
Our Seamless Collection is good for you if:
Want a second opinion on choosing between both collections? We're here to help! Please email our Support team at firstname.lastname@example.org with a recent selfie taken in natural lighting with no direct sunlight, where we can see your hair from top to bottom, and with no filters added - similar to the photo below.
Just like your natural hair, extensions will shed. Shedding is a common occurrence with hair extensions and because they are made of human hair, you can expect some shedding throughout their lifespan. As you brush and style your Luxies, some fall-out may occur so don’t be surprised or worried when this happens. This, however, does not mean to reduce the amount you brush your extensions as you can minimize shedding in other ways. Keep in mind, extensions are more likely to shed when they are dry and brittle.
Matting and tangling is a normal occurrence with not just your natural hair but with all types of hair extensions. This can happen due to a lack of constant brushing, weather, or dryness. A common reason why extensions tangle and get matted throughout the day is because of a combination of sweat, heat, and friction. Also, keep in mind that when human hair is constantly moving around it’s going to matt or ‘clump’ together in pieces.
If you aren’t brushing your hair consistently, you’re giving the hair the opportunity to matt and tangle. During the day, we generate heat at the nape of our neck and scalp, and often times we sweat back there too. Your sweat is salty, acidic and can dry out your hair extensions. When you add additional hair volume to this combination and constantly move your head throughout the day, tangling and matting will occur. Weather can also contribute to tangling, whether it be due to the wind, humidity or heat. Humidity will add a lot of moisture to the environment which will cause your hair to frizz up and tangle. Heat will do just the opposite as it will dry it out.
Thankfully, there are some simple ways to reduce shedding and ensure that your hair extensions remain smooth and tangle-free. To learn more, please click here.
Thankfully, there are some simple ways to reduce shedding and ensure that your hair extensions remain smooth and tangle-free.
The first and quite possibly one of the most important steps is to brush your extensions out before washing them and only once the hair is 90% dry. This helps minimize the possibility of breakage and shedding because the hair is at its weakest point when wet. Keep in mind it is also more susceptible to breakage when wet. Instead, use your fingers to gently loosen any tangles. Always gently brush your extensions before and after each use to reduce shedding and breakage. This will also prolong their lifespan. You can do this by starting at the ends and making your way up to the roots.
The Loop Hair Extensions Brush is a hair extension user's dream as it is specifically designed to be used on different types of hair extensions—not just clip-in hair extensions. The brush has unique nylon “looped” bristles which easily glide through the hair and remove any tangles. Due to these looped bristles, the brush does not cause pulling, snagging, or damage to your wefts. Alternatively, you can use a wide-tooth comb or a soft bristle brush. Always have a brush in your bag, so that even when you’re out and about you can still give your hair a quick brush.
Keeping your extensions moisturized and nourished is crucial, considering they don’t have a natural hydration source like your own hair does. If you are brushing your extensions throughout the day and you seem to notice dryness or some minor breakage, apply a pearl-size amount of a lightweight or water-based hair serum or a lightweight oil, like argan oil. Always ensure you apply it from the midshaft of the hair down to the ends and follow by brushing the extensions to evenly distribute the product throughout. Remember, less is more. You do not need to apply a hair oil daily, as this can cause buildup on your extensions. Instead, you apply it once a week or when you notice significant tangling and dryness.
The proper hair products make all the difference in whether your extensions will tangle or be soft and manageable. Purchase products specifically formulated for dry and damaged hair, as they will help keep the strands healthy and nourished. Also, look for products that add moisture to the hair like argan oil, coconut oil, and castor oil. Purchasing sulfate and alcohol-free products is a necessity as they are imperative to maintain the health of your extensions. These ingredients strip the hair of its natural oils and will affect their integrity. This, in turn, makes the hair drier and more prone to tangling or matting.
Always be sure to do one simple thing before you buy any product - flip it over! Many products out there have sulfates and alcohol hidden in their formulas. Also, keep in mind that not all companies claiming to make sulfate-free shampoos are truly free of sulfates. Be sure to check the ingredient listing and ensure you don’t see the words: SLS, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Alcohol denat, Ethanol, SD alcohol 40, Propanol, Isopropyl, and Propyl. To learn more about what products you should avoid using, click here.
Since your extensions don’t absorb the oils your natural hair would, you don’t have to wash them as often. As a general rule, the less you wash your extensions the longer they will last you. When washing your extensions, it's important you hydrate them as much as possible, and apply a moisturizing sulfate and alcohol-free conditioner before and after shampooing. Sometimes, you can even skip the shampoo and only co-wash your extensions with conditioner! Always be sure to rinse the extensions in cold water at the end to close cuticles and lock in moisture.
When you notice your extensions getting dry or tangled, apply a deep conditioning treatment or mask. This will hydrate and restore some moisture back into them, as well as help make them softer and more manageable to style. It’s an easy and simple process to do—all you have to do is dampen your extensions and apply a generous amount of a sulfate and alcohol-free deep conditioning treatment or conditioner to the hair, and let it soak in the product for 5-6 hours or overnight by placing it in a shower cap or a plastic bag. Rinse off as normal the next day.
Another way to infuse moisture back in your hair extensions is with an oil treatment, like coconut oil. First, measure out two tablespoons of coconut oil and warm it up until it melts. Then, apply it to dry hair from the mid-shaft working your way down and focusing most of the product on the ends. You can also leave this treatment on overnight for best results. In the morning, wash the extensions as normal. Keep in mind that coconut oil is very heavy so you may need to shampoo your extensions twice to get rid of all of the oil from the hair.
Improper hair care can also take a toll on your extensions. When washing, make sure to handle the extensions gently and to not rub them vigorously. After you are finished, carefully squeeze any excess water from the extensions. Never rub your extensions dry with a towel. Instead, always lay them out on a flat surface and gently pat them dry. When air drying, invest in a microfiber towel as it will remove excess water faster and it won’t rough up the hair (which can also cause tangles).
We do not recommend blow drying your extensions after every wash as doing this constantly will make them dry and more vulnerable to breakage. If you can avoid it, we highly recommend air drying your extensions for the safest route as this will also prevent against tangles. Also, we always suggest using a heat protectant spray prior to using any heat styling tool to extend the lifespan of your hair extensions. Additionally, we recommend to only use a low heat setting of 120C/250F, as anything higher runs the risk of damaging the hair.
If you need to use your extensions immediately after washing them, the most important thing is to ensure that you are using a cool setting to prevent any heat damage and that you don’t brush the hair until the hair is 90% dry. When blow drying, start by focusing on drying the root of the weft first and then working your way down to the ends. Always blow-dry downwards as this will help to not only smooth the cuticle but it will also prevent the hair from getting tangled since it is being blown in lots of different directions.
Limiting the number of products you apply to the hair will help with tangling. Using sticky products such as hairspray, hair gel, or hair wax, can and likely will clog up your extensions. The more products you use, the more you will need to wash your extensions, leading to dry, tangled extensions. Also, keep in mind that any products that you use on your natural hair can transfer onto your extensions.
Your extensions have a beautiful, healthy finish already so you shouldn’t need much product to enjoy them. If you want more hold when curling your extensions, try pinning up the curls and leaving them overnight or even just for an hour to ensure the curls stay in place without the use of hairspray. If you do want to reach for hairspray, consider a lightweight formula which you can still easily brush through. Extra strength hair sprays will clog up your extensions, which means more washing.
Starting a good storage routine from the moment you start wearing your new extensions is crucial as it will prevent tangling and matting in the future. Always ensure that you brush your extensions before and after each use. Interested in learning about the best way to store your Luxies? Click here to find out more!
Clip-in hair extensions should always be removed before sleeping, as they can get extremely tangled throughout the night if worn to bed. Since they only take a few minutes to clip in, and seconds to remove, removing them daily will maintain the integrity of the hair. You can store your hair extensions in the Luxy Hair Extensions Carrier, or, neatly coil them and store them in an airtight shoebox or container.
One of the most important things to keep in mind when wearing hair extensions is to not wear them while swimming or taking a shower.
You can definitely wear them to the beach or by the pool, however, we do not recommend getting into the water with them (unless your hair is tied up and will not get wet).
Have you ever noticed how dry and tangled your natural hair feels after swimming in a chlorinated pool or salt water? Chlorine from swimming pools, salt from ocean water, and dirt in all bodies of water can be damaging to your hair extensions. Also, swimming with your extensions clipped in may lead to the extensions tangling with your natural hair, which can be damaging.
Avoid doing any physical activity that could lead to excessive sweat, when you are wearing hair extensions. Remember, your sweat is salty, acidic and can dry out your hair extensions so this could lead to additional matting and tangling, causing your hair extensions to deteriorate faster. To increase the lifespan of your extensions, try to minimize their exposure to sweat. Instead, be sure to un-clip them before heading to the gym!
We currently only offer one shade in 24 inches: Blonde Balayage. The rest of our extensions are available in 20 inches, and some colors are available in 16 inches.

If you place an order for a sample swatch, you will receive a small lock of hair that is dyed perfectly to reflect the colors we offer in our full sets.

Luxy Hair extensions are available in our new 16" Classic collection, as well as our standard 20" Classic & Seamless collections. We also offer a longer length in our 24" Seamless Blonde Balayage set.
Great question! This is because Luxy Hair extensions will appear different in length on every person, as we all have different torso lengths. If you have a longer torso or are quite tall, Luxies will appear shorter on you. If you are more petite or have a shorter torso, Luxies will appear longer on you.
In order to determine how long Luxies will be on you, we recommend measuring either 16 inches or 20 inches down from the top of your ear with a measuring tape, as most wefts will be applied around the crown of your head.
Since Luxies are made of 100% remy human hair, they can be cut or trimmed to any desired length by an experienced hair stylist if you are interested in a shorter length. If you decide to get them cut, we recommend having them already clipped into your hair during the haircut. We also recommend coming up with a numbering system for the wefts, so that you know exactly where each weft is supposed to be clipped in for the future uses.
If you have medium blonde hair, you can opt for our exclusive 24" Seamless Blonde Balayage set. At this time, Luxy Hair does not offer a longer length collection, however, we are always open to feedback. Should you be interested in a length, color, or other option for hair extensions that we don't currently carry, kindly send us an email at email@example.com, and we'll be happy to keep your suggestion in mind for future product considerations.
Luxy Hair extensions are offered in 20 beautiful colors ranging from Jet Black to Platinum Blonde, and from Ombre to Balayage. Our extensions are made with a multi-tonal adapt coloring system, which means that there are subtle highlights and lowlights, lighter strands and darker strands throughout each set. This gives the shades movement, dimension, and depth. It also ensures that the extensions blend with your natural hair even if your hair color is a few shades off.
Below is a comparison guide that shows the level and undertone of each of our Luxy Hair colors. It also offers a general comparison to popular hair dyes on the market.
Disclaimer: We do not guarantee an exact match when dyeing your hair to match your Luxies. Applying a certain hair dye can yield different results depending on the starting color of someone's hair (and other factors). We recommend having the extensions dyed by a professional. If, however, you choose to do it yourself, a test strand is always recommended.
Once you receive your Luxies, there will be a sample weft located in the bottom compartment of the box - try this weft first prior to opening the main compartment because you can still return/exchange your set if it’s not a good fit.

Balayage means to "paint" or "sweep"— it's a dyeing process that results in natural-looking highlights. There is no clear fade line between the darker and lighter colors like with our Ombre shades. As well, darker pieces are left at the bottom to give the hair that extra depth and dimension.
No, your hair can be a solid shade! Balayage extensions are a damage-free way to add sun-kissed dimension to your hair.
In order for your Luxy Hair Seamless Balayage extensions to blend, we recommend ensuring that your hair matches the root color of the extensions. To determine the right match for you, please read below.
Yes. Balayage extensions will blend even if you have ombre or highlights in your hair. If you have ombre, the Balayage extensions will add more color and dimension higher up. If you have highlights, the Balayage extensions will add more color towards the ends.
Our Seamless Blonde Balayage Luxies will work for those with a fine hair type and a small amount of hair. For best results, your hair should be about 6-7 inches in length for the extensions to blend naturally (that's about shoulder length). For those with a blunt/lob haircut or an average-thick hair type, you will need to opt for our 220g Classic set.

Yes, your hair can be a solid shade! Ombre extensions are a damage-free way to add brightness to your hair color.
We recommend opting for one of our 4 Balayage shades to further accentuate your highlights.
Yes - we recommend that your hair is at least 9 inches or shorter and that your hair color is a solid shade from root to end. This is because the transition of the Ombre starts 9 inches down the length of each weft. If you have lighter pieces, the extensions will be noticeable and hard to blend.
If you have fine hair and not a lot of it, opt for our 160g set. For those with a blunt haircut/lob or an average - thick hair type, opt for our 200g set.
This is because you will need the extra hair and wefts to achieve a natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin. If you choose a set that is too thin for your hair, the ends will look stringy and unnatural.

Ombré is a French word, which means "shadow"—it's a process that dyes the hair in a gradation from dark to light. The outcome is usually darker hair from the roots to the mid-shaft and a transition to a lighter color from the mid-shaft through to the ends. With ombré, there is a noticeable color blocking from dark to light, with a smooth transition in between. This technique is meant to look like the hair has been dip-dyed.
Yes - we recommend that your hair is at least 9 inches or shorter and that your hair color is a solid shade from root to end. This is because the transition of the ombre starts 9 inches from the base of the weft. If you have lighter pieces, the extensions will be noticeable and hard to blend.
Yes - our Ombre extensions will look like subtle highlights in your hair instead of a noticeable color blocking at the ends.
The Ombre transition starts 9 inches from the base of the weft.
The balayage highlights start 6 inches from the base of the weft.
No, we do not offer our sample swatches in our Balayage shades at this time.
All Luxies, however, have a sample weft stored in the small compartment at the bottom of the box. This weft can be used to determine if the shade is a good match. If the shade is not an ideal match, we are more than happy to accommodate a return or exchange as long as the main compartment of your Luxy box has not been opened and the golden security seal has not been tampered with.
Please be sure to check out: How do I choose the right color of Balayage extensions?
Yes. Balayage extensions will blend even if you have Ombre or highlights in your hair. If you have Ombre, the balayage extensions will add more color and dimension higher up. If you have highlights, the balayage extensions will add more color towards the ends.
All Luxy Hair extensions come with a sample weft, therefore, you can take out the weft and hold it up against your hair to see if you’re happy with the blend. If you feel it’s not a good fit, we’ll be happy to accept your package back for a return or exchange.
Yes. Clip-in extensions are a great way to experiment with color, without the full-time commitment or damage to your natural hair. In order for the extensions to blend, we recommend ensuring that your hair matches the root color of the extensions.
All of our Balayage shades are offered exclusively in our Seamless collection. They come in a standard weight of 180 grams.
Balayage is a specific coloring technique. It was derived in France and is translated to ‘sweeping’. Balayage is a beautiful, dimensional look that includes highlights throughout the hair, with a higher concentration towards the ends.
For human hair, you can expect to pay anywhere between $100-$500 USD.
Our extensions in particular will vary in price depending on the weight and color.

Remy human hair is the best hair to use for clip-in hair extensions, as it’s the highest grade of real, human hair and achieves the most natural look because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other non-remy hair extensions.
Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.
Yes, hair extensions are a great way for adding thickness to thin and fine hair, without causing any damage to your natural hair or hindering hair growth in the meantime.
Our 120g Classic set is ideal for fine hair types and those with a small amount of hair, as it’s our lightest weight. If you are looking for an extra voluminous look, you may consider opting for our 160g Classic set or our 180g Seamless set.

No, clip-in hair extensions are a very safe way to achieve longer and fuller hair, as it’s a temporary solution that is applied and removed daily from your hair.
Clip-in hair extensions are best for your hair, as it is a temporary solution to longer and fuller hair. The clips are applied to the roots of your hair and do not cause any damage or hinder hair growth during wear, unlike other hair extension alternatives.
As a kind reminder, we recommend for your hair to be at least 6-7 inches (this is around shoulder length) in order for clip-in hair extensions to blend naturally. If your hair is any shorter, you may experience some trouble with hiding the wefts in your hair.
Which set you opt for will largely depend on your hair thickness, however, generally speaking, we always recommend to opt for one of our heavier sets. Why? This will help ensure that there are enough wefts and hair to create a seamless and natural transition where your real hair ends and the extensions begin. Otherwise, opting for a set too lightweight will result in the extensions appearing stringy or unnatural looking – like below. This is, arguably, every girl's nightmare.
If you have short and fine hair (both in strands and in amount) you should opt for:
If you have short and medium to thick hair (this includes those who have fine hair strands but a lot of them) you should opt for:
Naturally, those with short hair will have to put in a bit more work in order to have their extensions blend in naturally than say, someone with long hair who is simply looking for volume over length. A big misconception a lot of our short-haired customers have is that they can simply clip in their Luxies straight out of the box and it will look natural. While some ladies can pull this off, we typically have to remind our short-haired customers that they will have to put in a bit of work to ensure their extensions look as natural as possible.
How, you ask? We'll share a few of our tips and tricks that have worked best for many of our short-haired customers.
If you're a visual learner, check out Milana's video below where she shows how to clip in, trim and layer her 220g Ash Blonde Luxy Hair extensions which she's had custom-toned to match her hair color perfectly.
When choosing your ideal Luxy weight, it's important to opt for a set that best matches your hair type, and not necessarily the type of hair you want to have. Also, keep in mind if you have lots of hair strands or short hair will also need to consider a heavier weight.
Some common misconceptions we often come across with customers that can sometimes lead to a wrong set being purchased is:
The answer is no to all four and we'll explain why below.
Our 120 gram Classic set is our thinnest set and is ideal for fine and fragile hair types.
You may be able to tell from above that the key word here is "and". The reason why we emphasize this is because if you fit all of the above points, our 120 gram Classic set is ideal for you. If, for example, you have fine hair strands but a lot of them, you will need to consider a heavier weight. Or, if you have above shoulder length (short) hair, you will also need to consider a heavier weight.
Our 160 gram Classic set is a medium-thickness set and is ideal for thin to average hair types.
But wait, didn't you say that the 120 gram set was ideal for thin hair types? Good catch—we'll be happy to explain why shortly.
In the meantime, this set comes with a total of 10 wefts, which is one more four clip weft than our 120 gram set. The difference in each set is not only the extra weft, but also that there is more hair attached to each weft. The hair strand thickness itself will remain the same.
Our 160 gram set includes the following 10 wefts: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below.
The photo below is of our beautiful customer, Abii Carter, who has naturally short and fine hair and who chose our 160g Ash Blonde set to create the perfect blend to her short hair.
Our 180 gram Seamless set is an additional option for those who are considering our 160 gram Classic set. Our Seamless set is a medium-thickness set and is ideal for thin to average hair types.
Similar to our 160-gram Luxies, this set comes with a total of 10 wefts, but has more hair attached to each weft making the full set slightly thicker than the 160-gram Classic set. The following 10 wefts are included: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below.
So, what's the difference then? The biggest difference between our Classic and Seamless extensions is how the wefts are manufactured. Our Seamless extensions are made with a thin silicone base which is 50% thinner than our Classic fabric-stitched wefts. They will remain virtually undetectable in your hair.

But wait, didn't you just say before that the 160g set is best for medium hair types? Which one is it! Noted—we'll clarify this in one moment.
Similar to our 160 gram set, our 220 gram set comes with a total of 10 wefts. As a reminder, this is the same number of wefts as our 160 gram set, and one more four clip weft than our 120 gram set.
The difference between this set and our 160 gram set is that our 220 gram set will have more hair attached to each 10 wefts making it thicker and fuller. The hair strand thickness itself will remain the same.
Our 220 gram set includes the following 10 wefts: 1 x 8" weft, 1 x 7" weft, 2 x 6" wefts, 2 x 4"wefts, 4 x 1" wefts, as shown in the image below.
Need a recap?
Yes, seamless extensions are water resistant. If your set is coming in contact with water for a long period of time (for example, during wash) it is best to let the hair soak in water for no longer than 20-30 seconds. This is because over time, water may seep into the base cavities where the hair comes from, which can make it difficult to dry out because silicone is not as breathable as having a fabric base.
Luxy Hair clip-in extensions, classic or seamless, rarely experience shedding. While the base of our seamless sets is thinner, they do not shed any more because of this.
The type of care that is put into your extensions will affect how much it sheds. With proper care, shedding will be virtually non-existent. You can minimize shedding by maintaining your Luxies and gently brushing them with your Loop Brush before and after each use. It won’t cause pulling, snagging, or damage to your wefts.
To learn how to properly brush hair extensions, please watch the helpful tutorial we created below.
When styling your seamless extensions with high heat, we recommend setting your tool at 120C/250F degrees or lower. Anything higher may run the risk of damaging the hair, as with any other clip-in extensions. This is because the hair is not being revitalized at the scalp like our own hair is, and over time excessive heat and high temperatures may cause wear and tear to your set, and could potentially loosen the silicone bond with the hair. Generally speaking, heat will not damage the base of the weft unless it is very high.
One of the best thing about our extensions? They don’t need to be styled at a high heat temperature any way to see results. Our extensions will curl and straighten with ease using low heat.
Just like any set of clip-in extensions (seamless or regular), we advise you to care for your Luxies with love. Watch the video below for our top tips on how to care for your extensions to ensure they live a long and happy life.
With your seamless set, we recommend to be more gentle while handling the clips because they are stitched onto the silicone base directly. We advise against pulling or pressing the clips with strong force, as it may eventually cause damage to your set.
As with our regular sets, seamless hair extensions can be washed using warm water and shampoo and conditioner.
All of our hair is sourced and manufactured in China. We source our hair straight from verified distributors, who depend on their long-standing reputation for ethical sourcing and quality hair.
We only choose to work with companies where workers are satisfied and happy to be apart of the team. Luxy facilities employ working age staff (mostly middle age women and men) who get a proper salary, normal working hours, weekends off, and holiday leave.
Also, all of our hair is donated, sold, or exchanged fairly. For example, some of our hair is obtained from temples, where hair is a form of donation and a source of revenue for the monastery/ temple for its own expenses and projects. Therefore, it's a from of meritorious deed for the donor, same as donating money or food. We also obtain our hair from many hair salons, who choose to sell their hair instead of throwing it away into the waste stream.
