What are hair extensions?
Hair extensions are strands of human hair that can be attached to your scalp through a variety of methods, appearing as if the hair is your own. Hair extensions are used to extend the length of hair, provide volume, or add highlights to your own hair.
What quality should I look for when buying hair extensions?
You should only buy Remy hair extensions which are a form of human hair that has been grown in one direction with the cuticle intact. Silky and resistant to tangling, remy hair is an excellent choice when shopping for hair extensions.
What are hair extensions made from?
Human hair is the most desirable form, Remy hair, has been cut from a human head of hair, as opposed to residual hair that has fallen or been brushed off.
Are cheap hair extensions worth buying?
Let’s define cheap hair extensions: If “cheap” means “affordable”, Gorgeous hair extensions are “cheap”, made from the finest human hair and competitively priced. If “cheap hair extensions” are those made from synthetic or low-grade human hair, these are not worth buying.
Are Gorgeous hair extensions made from 100% human hair?

Who can wear hair extensions?
Women of any age who want to add volume and length to their hair can wear hair extensions. For women who want to dress up and have fun, clip in hair extensions, which are easy to remove and easy to change, are the best option.
When should hair extensions be worn?
Hair extensions should be worn whenever you want! Formal occasions can be dressed up with a hairpiece; everyday hair maintenance can be reduced with extensions, and changes of seasons can be celebrated with ponytails.
How do you apply hair extensions?
There are many ways to adhere the hair extensions to your scalp. Most should be done in a professional salon, while the clip in hair extensions can be quickly inserted at home:
- Tape: Is applied onto the weft portion of the hair extension and then pressed into position at the root of your hair.
- Weaving: This process is created using a cornrow or track around the head and close to the scalp. The hair weft is then sewn on to the tracks.
- Strand-by-strand I Tips: Is done in strand sections using beads and a crimping tool, each strand-by-strand hair extension is added directly to your own hair.
- Clip in: Using small snap-on clips that have been sewn onto the hair extensions, these can be quickly inserted into the hair without the help from a professional.
Are hair extensions permanent or temporary?
- Permanent hair extensions—Hair extensions are never “permanent” in the true sense of the word but can last for months. Compared to clip in hair extensions, the bonding process used to affix hair extensions to the scalp has a much more “permanent” effect.
- Clip in hair extensions—For those seeking a quick change that can be undone on demand, clip in hair extensions are the answer.
How should I care for my hair extensions?
Hair extensions are easy to maintain and instantly bring a new look to your life.
Can I colour hair extensions?
Yes. Hair extensions have already undergone a chemical process and are designed to accept colour change. You might want to test the colour on a few strands first to make sure the resulting shade is what you anticipate. We also recommend using a semi permanent colour as it is much more gentle on the hair extensions.
How long does my hair have to be to wear hair extensions?
Your hair does not have to be very long to enjoy the beauty of wearing hair extensions. We’ve seen hair extensions applied to hair as short as 3” in length but recommend starting lengths of at least 6” for best results.
How do I wash my hair extensions?
Wash the hair in one direction; from top to bottom. Avoid washing hair upside down in the sink. Always wash your hair straight away after swimming or carry some conditioner to soften the hair before washing it.
How often do I need to brush my hair extensions?
It is important to always brush your extensions before shampooing, sleep and in the morning when you wake up to style your hair. When brushing your hair, start from the bottom and work your way up while holding the top part to keep it from shedding or stretching. Try not to pull it hard with a brush, always a good tip to hold your hair in a ponytail and always start from length working towards your roots. Section your hair so you know you have covered all areas.
Can I brush, curl, straighten, blow dry and wash my hair extensions?
Yes. This is your new hair. Due to its high quality, our extensions will always remain smooth and silky. You can have fun with any style you desire. You will find that you don't need to wash your hair everyday as your hair will stay clean and curled for days.
What types of products should I use?
Moisture is the most important thing. Use styling products that are zero or low alcohol. IMPORTANT - When applying conditioner or leave-in conditioner treatments, cover the top section of your natural hair and length of your extensions only. Please avoid applying too much conditioner to your bonds as sometimes conditioner can make them slide out. If you find that your bonds are sliding out, then please change your shampoo and conditioner you are using, to prevent this.
Can I swim and go in the ocean?
You can definitely go swimming in ocean, swimming pools and hot tubs BUT WITH CARE. Please note, it is very important that you carry some conditioner with you and apply to your hair after swimming. This will keep your hair moisturised and glossy, and will prevent any tangles until you get home and give it a proper wash.
Will anyone notice I am wearing them?
No. Due to the quality of Gorgeous hair extensions, they look very natural and no one will be able to tell that you are wearing them! It is very important to choose the right colour and application to suit your hair and style. To create the most natural look, you might need to trim your hair extensions a little so they are layered to blend in with your natural hair.
How long will my hair extensions last?
Each person is different, depending on climate, water, products used, care for the hair, brushing, using blow dryers and hot irons, how it was applied, swimming, how often washed, etc. Clip In hair extensions are reusable, so they can last you over a year plus. Tape, I Tip, Weft Hair Extensions will give you 3 months wear and than you would need to take them out and relfit them they will give an additional 2-3 extra applications.
Will extensions damage my hair?
No. Extensions should not damage your hair if properly cared for and maintained. You must take care in brushing; if you ever get a tangle; hold the hair while you brush it and brush section by section.
