Can I colour my hair whilst wearing a hair weave?
It is very easy to colour your hair whilst wearing a hair weave. If you need to do your roots, simply section your hair as usual and follow the instructions supplied with your hair colour/dye. However, you may find it easier to visit a hair salon for your colour service.
Will sunbathing or subbed affect my hair weave?
No, a hair weave is not vulnerable to heat. Just remember to protect the hair with a leave-in conditioner or other suitable hair product with a sun protection factor.
Do I have to use specific products to maintain my hair weave?
No. You are free to use any products you choose. Feel comfortable to experiment with what works for you and your new style.
Can I swim whilst wearing a hair weave?
Yes. Your hair weave is not vulnerable to chlorine or salt water. Just remember to protect your extension hair to avoid excessive drying out. If you thoroughly wet your hair before entering the pool/sea, your hair will not absorb as much water.
Can I brush my hair thoroughly whilst wearing a hair weave?
Yes, daily brushing and combing is essential for keeping your hair weave tangle free.
How will you match hair colour to my hair weave?
It’s pretty easy to match the colour of your own hair to the hair weave. During the consultation, we use fibre hair swatches to indicate what colours are already present in your hair and then use this to match it to the required human hair. This allows us to get a ‘true colour’ match’.
What is the longest length I can wear my hair weave?
The extension hair we use at Secret Extensions is generally available up to 24 inches. The longer the extensions, the more overall extra weight you are carrying. For the health of your scalp, we would recommend going no longer than 20 inches. Ideally 16-18 inches is good as a standard for maximum length.
Can I add highlights to my hair weave?
The short answer is no. You can add slices of colour to emphasise your existing highlights and create bold colour effects but highlights are not possible as your crown area is left free to cover the hair weave wefts. You can see what colours of hair weave are available here.
Will my regular hair stylist be able to work with my new hair weave?
