FAQs

Here are some answers to a few frequently asked questions.

What does the term “wefted” mean?

Wefted hair is hair used for weaving. It is sewn or bonded (with special bonding glue) into a track/braid ready for the weaving process. A weft looks like a curtain or hair stitched together along the top.

Can the weft be cut?

Yes. Our wefts are reinforced and made by a machine. They can be cut without unraveling.

How much hair do I need?

For Weaving: If you are getting a full sew-in weave the average person needs about six to eight ounces of hair. We recommend buying 2 packs of hair and saving the hair for later (for lengths 12”-18”). If you are using hair over 18” long we suggest purchasing an additional pack (3 total) It is always best to have enough hair than run our during the installation. Hair does not expire.

For Bonding: If you are getting the hair bonded one pack is enough for five to six track layers

Does the hair appear natural?

Very! The wind could blow, someone could touch your hair, swim, sauna, spa. It is incredible and the hair is as light as a feather, no one will even know you have hair extensions.

Can I color this hair?

Yes, this is 100% virgin human hair which is not processed in any way. So you can color the hair, Once virgin hair is treated in any way, it is no longer virgin, therefore we recommend that you color or process your Indian hair by a professional.

What type of hair car products should I use?

Treat this hair like your own hair. Use good quality shampoo and conditioning products. Conditioning your hair is very important to keep it soft and manageable. We recommend using a deep conditioner on your Indian hair once per week, but avoid using oil or heavy styling products.

Do I have to do anything special in the morning?

We advise that you comb your hair every morning. Gently brush your hair from the ends towards your scalp. Starting from the ends keeps the pressure off the weft area and is a good way to maintain the longevity of the extensions.

Do I have to do anything special at night?

You must NEVER sleep on wet hair. Sleeping on wet hair is known to matte hair which makes it very difficult to keep the hair the way you want. Just make sure your hair is completely dry before you go to sleep and you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.

Yes schedule your re-attachment service appointments every 5-8 weeks.

How often can I wash my hair?

As often as you like

How long does the hair last?

This hair can lat for a very long time depending on how you maintain it. Treat it like your own hair and take good care of it for it to last longer. Depending on maintenance, hair will last 6 months to a year.

What is the difference in virgin remy hair and remy hair sold in beauty supply stores?

In order to pull off your best look, the hair must flow like real hair, behave like real hair, and look like real hair. You need hair that you can custom color and match to your own, perm, and style, without damage. The only hair that can achieve this is virgin remy hair. Wearing hair extensions is your secret, and no one should know but you! The difference between our virgin remy hair and beauty supply store hair, is the difference of people saying “ She has such beautiful full hair” and “She is wearing wet’n’wavy!” At Crème de-la Crème hair we don’t believe in “cookie-cutter hair.” Despite what commercial grade “remy” hair sold in beauty supply stores may claim, we can promise you that commercial beauty supply store hair is in no way virgin or remy and you, the consumer, should be aware of that!

The Truth: About 90% of the human hair for sale (including commercial “remy”) by beauty supply stores and some online hair retailers has been heavily processed to achieve the look and feel. It is usually low quality, stiff and wiry hair of Asian (Chinese) origin, and sometimes mixed with synthetic and animal “filler” hair. Such hair is collected in a disorganized manner (tops/ends mixed up), stripped of its cuticles by soaking it in an acid bath colored with metallic dyes, and further chemically processed to achieve certain textures. It arrives coated heavily in silicone, giving it a temporary “tangle free” nature and unnatural shine, which rinses away with the first few washes. Once the silicone coat is gone the significantly degraded hair leads to intense tangling, gathering, matting, stiffness, and dryness. Because the hair has been so heavily processed, it usually cannot handle any further processing (i.e. coloring, perming, heating, curling, straightening). This type of hair is usually only good for one extension service and must be disposed of, leading to an expensive yearly cost if you are a frequent extensions wearer.

Will Indian or Brazilian hair match the texture of African American hair?

Yes, because the hair is also ethnic it blends well African American hair.
Hair Care Maintenance
Caring for Virgin Hair is no different from caring for your natural hair. Our Virgin Hair is the closest you will find to your natural hair.

Here are just a few tips on daily care to keep your hair weave looking healthy, manageable and re-usable.

Sleeping: Never sleep on wet r damp hair. Always make sure your hair is completely dry before going to bed.

Before Going to Bed: Gently brush hair to remove all tangles. Braid your hair into a couple of big braids, wrap your hair, or tie your hair into a ponytail or bun. Sleeping in a satin scarf also beneficial.

Washing Your Hair: Keeping your hair extension clean is very important to making them last longer. Before washing your hair extensions: Brush your hair and remove all tangles and knots. Them wet a small portion of hair at the time and use a good detangling shampoo, and a rich moisturizer. Distribute shampoo and conditioner evenly throughout the hair. Always wash my hair going in a downward motion. Apply a deep moisturizing conditioner to your extensions.

After washing and conditioning your hair, apply a good leave -in conditioning product, this always helps to keep your hair super soft and moist.

Wavy & Curly Hair: If you have wavy or curly textured hair extensions and plan to wear the hair wavy or curly you need to apply a curl defining/curl control cream while the hair is wet. This way it will stop the hair from frizzing and lock in the wave or curl in the hair. We recommend Curl Wise 14 by Redken, which can be purchased at any salon that sells Redken products. (i.e. Regis Salon in Galleria)

Styling Your Hair: Virgin Human Hair is very close to your own natural hair. You can basically do anything with it; perm it, color, brush, comb and flat iron it to any style just like your natural hair. If you are not familiar with coloring hair please bring extensions to a professional colorist!!!
