What is 100% Remy Hair?
Remy hair is the highest quality of hair extensions! What makes Remy hair so great? Remy hair is kept with the cuticles intact and all hair strand are aligned in the natural direction of growth. This means beautiful hair that is soft to touch and does not easily tangle. Remy hair is used in all clip-in extensions at Bombay Hair.
What is Virgin Hair?
Virgin hair is less processed then Remy hair and is used in our semi-permanent collection (Tapes, Weaves, I-tip and Keratin tip). This hair is even softer then our clip hair!
What is the difference between Virgin and Remy hair?
There is a difference between our tape-ins, weave, fusion (semi-permanent) and clip-ins. For our semi-permanent lines we use the highest quality 100% virgin hair. Virgin hair is processed differently than our clip-in extensions. They have fewer treatments done to them in the factory than our clip-in extensions. It’s a softer consistency, however, our tape-ins are double drawn, giving you double the volume per tape-in section.
The clip-in extensions sets are made with 100% human Remy hair. Remy hair is a bit thicker than virgin hair, which needs a little more help in the factory with the dying process. We also create our clip-ins to be thicker than our tape-in extensions. Our clip-ins are double-wefted and thick from root to tip, so you're getting thicker hair and more volume--which is why we use Remy hair for clip-ins. People are generally looking for a fuller look with clip-ins also (bridal hair, ect).
What is double drawn?
Double drawn refers to the collection process of the hair. Most short hairs are removed from the extensions, meaning each set is long and beautiful. This eliminates unwanted scraggly hairs. Yayy!
All our clip-in hair extensions are double-drawn! Our semi-permanents come in either single-drawn or double-drawn please refer to the product descriptions for further information.
What are tape-in extensions?
Tape in extensions are a semi-permanent solution - perfect for those people who want to have "I woke up like this" hair. Imagine not having to put in and take out hair daily and still having full thick hair. Tape in extensions take about 45 minutes to 1.5 hours to be installed and can last anywhere from 6-9 weeks, thought the hair can be reinstalled unto 1 year with proper care. We recommend always using a tester piece prior to installation of the extensions to ensure the product works well for you.
Tape In Extensions Install Method:
Bombay Hair tape used in our hair extensions is a medical adhesive and is hypoallergenic – made in the USA. Our tape provides a secure application that can also be easily removed and/or for reapplication. We always recommend a patch test if you have a sensitive scalp or first time wearer of tape in extensions.
Once hair is "sandwiched" in between two (2) pieces. For thinner hair types, you may apply just one (1) piece with single-sided tape.
Bombay Hair always recommends you see a professional for installation and use a tester piece. Bombay Hair is not responsible for any issues experienced after the extensions have been fully installed into your hair.
What are clip-in extensions?
These types of hair extensions are the perfect solution if you want to temporarily add length and volume to your own hair within minutes. Since clip-in extensions are NOT permanent, they are very easy to apply and remove. Clip-in extensions are the most affordable option for natural, healthy and fabulous looking hair.
How do you put in hair extensions?
Hair extensions add length and volume to your hair within minutes. Here is a video with a step-by-step tutorial showcasing how to clip Bombay Hair extensions into your hair. Of course, feel free to add your own spin and creativity to it!
You will be able to to put in your extensions in less than 5 minutes, and remove them even quickly. With practice comes experience, so in no time at all you will be a pro!
How do you install semi-permanent/permanent extensions?
Installation of semi-permanent/permanent hair extensions will vary, depending on the exact type of extension it is. We recommend for installation of any semi-permanent/permanent extensions to be done by a licensed hair professional. We always recommend a patch test is done before the installation of hair extensions.
How long do hair extensions last?
Care is key when it comes to the life of your hair! Since all our hair is 100% human hair the best advice is to treat it like your own hair. Always gently brush your hair during wear and before your store them away. Always store your hair properly in the zip bag provided, or on a hang-your-hair hanger inside of a carrier. The more products and heat you apply to your hair, the more love it will need!
Clip-in extensions average life span is 3-6 months to well over a year!
Tape, weave and fusion hair extensions average life span: 3-12 months depending on care! Our semi-permanent line can be installed and re-installed. The best way to make these last longer is to not dye, purple shampoo or alter them in any way just like your own hair. This is an average life span and may be longer or shorter.
Overall, the better you take care of your extensions the longer they will last. An important factor in expanding the lifespan of your extensions is by deep conditioning! It is great to deep condition them once a week (if you wear them often). Also, overnight deep conditioning with a small about of Argan or Almond Oil is just lovely for your extensions! We recommend laying your extensions flat to dry on satin or silk.
Bombay Hair tape, weave and fusion hair is made from the highest grade of hair, 100% virgin human hair – this is our luxury hair line which is meant to last as long as possible with daily wear!
What types of hair extensions do you have?
We carry Clip-In, Weave, Tape, I-Tip and Keratin Tip.
How do I avoid damaging my hair?
Always treat your Bombay Hair like your own natural hair! Heat protectant sprays and hair oils are a great way to maintain the integrity of your hair when using our hair tools. Also, using a lower setting can assist with preventing damage to your natural hair.
Pertaining to clip-in hair extensions, we do not recommend removing the clips for the clip-in extensions and sewing, gluing or any other method of installation for clip-in extensions. Clip-in hair extensions are not meant to be installed the same way as semi-permenent extensions and installing them in these methods can be extremely damaging to your clip ins.
Avoid dying, toning or altering the hair in any way!
Can I dye my extensions?
Bombay Hair does not recommend dying, toning or altering the hair in anyway in order to maintain the amazing quality. Should you choose to dye your hair you should always take them to a professional licensed hair stylist. Always use a tester piece first before dying. Bleaching hair extensions that have already been processed is extremely harmful to the hair. Therefore, we never recommend bleaching the hair. Having said that, you must dye your hair at your own risk, as there are many factors that can alter the results: temperature, duration, method, etc. Bombay Hair will not be responsible for the outcome.
Once Bombay Hair extensions have been dyed, toned, altered we can no longer guarantee the quality of the product as many factors can effect the outcome. Once the hair extensions have been worn they cannot be returned/exchanged/refunded.
Not able to find or figure out which color you are? You can easily send us a photo by clicking the link and we will color match you! Click here for a color match.
What should I avoid when wearing tape-in extensions?
Factors that may affect your tape-in extensions:
1) Note that environmental factors may have an affect on the longevity of your tape. It’s always a good idea to cover up your hair in high summer heat/tropical conditions (especially around where the adhesive connects to your natural hair). Wearing a hat will keep the hair protected from the sun and assist in maintaining the longevity of your tape-in installation.
2) Salt water/swimming in chlorine pools may also affect the adhesive in the tape. It’s always a good idea to keep your hair out of the water to ensure a long-lasting hold.
3) Enter the salon at your own risk. Bombay hair is not responsible for the persons/salon installing your hair. As salons are not certified by us, we cannot take responsibility for the persons installing the hair. If you have any issues with the tape installation - this is between the client and salon.
4) It’s recommended to use very small sections of hair when applying tapes, some salons use too thick of sections and it will cause the tapes to fall out shortly after install. It’s important to find a salon that has good reviews. Ask them about their customer service policies, especially if you are not satisfied with the installation.
5) If the salon tones, dyes or uses hair tools on the hair that are too strong/hot - this can greatly affect the integrity of your extensions. If your hair feels dry, tangled, matted or like straw after leaving the salon - your hairdresser may have used chemicals that were too strong for the extensions, or possibly a hair tool that was way too hot for your extensions. Yes, it is absolutely possible to burn hair extensions, just like your own hair, it will fry and become damaged. This is between you and your salon to resolve this.
6) Always check the quality of the hair extensions in the bag once your extensions arrive from Bombay Hair, if it’s not up to your standards, you have 14 days to contact us for a return or exchange. If you feel the quality was perfect before your entered the salon, it’s up to you and your hairdresser to resolve why the hair feels different after leaving the salon.
7) Washing your hair daily is not recommended. Less moisture = longer hold. Many are accustomed to daily washing, it is not recommended to wash your tape-in extensions more than 3 times weekly. Washing tapes daily will affect the adhesive.
8) It’s always a good idea to blow dry your hair/extensions after washing. Sleeping on wet hair will push moisture into the adhesive area and cause the tapes to come apart. Imagine putting a roll of tape in water for 8 hours - the adhesive won’t stick.
9) Always use a good deep conditioning treatment once per week on your hair, along with hair oil on the ends after washing. BH recommends if you have long extensions to sleep with your hair in a braid or with a silk head scarf/cap around your head. This will assist with any pulling/shifting of your extensions while you sleep. Silk pillow cases are a great alternative also.
10) Regular trims, just like your own hair, will help keep the ends of your extensions fresh and voluminous. This also alleviates tangling.
11) Shedding is a normal part of our own hair, the same goes with hair extensions. Do not be alarmed if you have shedding. This does not mean product is defective. Tape-in extensions are meant to last 2-3 installations, with that, shedding will occur with each install. It is recommended to purchase new hair thereafter.
12) After a few weeks of wear: Tape-ins may have some stay hairs that pop out at the top of the weft. This is a normal part of every day wear. Just like our natural hair, the extensions may move/shift with your natural hair. Simply trim the top of the weft before re-installing the hair.
13) Dying your extensions or toning them at home is at your own risk. Using dyes that are semi-permanent (28 washes for example) may be a better option, as these are less damaging to hair than permanent hair colors. After extensions have been opened/dyed the sale becomes final.
How do I remove tape-in extensions?
We recommend getting your tape-in extensions installed and removed by a professional hair salon. If you choose to do this at home, tape-in extensions can be removed with Bombay Hair Bond Remover (for professional use only). Place the bond remover over the adhesive part of the tape-ins and let sit for a few minutes until it has been absorbed. Gently pull apart the tape-in extension sandwich, then gently pull off your natural hair. Being as gentle as possible will assist in maintaining the integrity of your natural hair. After removing all of your extensions, shampoo and condition your hair as usual.
