Frequently asked questions
Q: How many strands of hair do I need for a full head?
A: The average head of hair takes between 5 and 6 packs (100 – 120 strands). However, depending on the length of the client’s hair, as well as the thickness this can vary. Someone with a short bob for example may use as many as 10 packs, whereas someone with shoulder length hair may only need 4.
Q: What colour should I choose?
A: We have many colours to choose from in a wide variety of shades and levels. Remember, because the hair is 100% human you can also colour the hair to a level of your choice. Our extension specialist can help colour match you during your consultation.
Q: How many strands come in a pack?
A: Tape-In packs come with ten 1 ½” wefts.
Q: How do I care for my hair?
A: For a complete list of hair care instructions please ask your extension specialist for a hair care instruction card. Be sure to always use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Try not to expose the bonds to chlorinated water or other harsh ingredients.
Q: What can I do with my hair once the extensions are in?
A: Basically anything you would do with your own hair. From curling to blow-drying, flat-ironing and styling. Just remember to always take extra good care of your hair.
Q: Can I brush my hair with extensions in place?
A: Yes! LazRiel offers multiple affordable hair extension brushes. We recommend each new customer to purchase one to ensure proper care and maintenance for the hair. When brushing, hold the hair at the roots and brush from the tips working up.
Q: Can I dye my hair extensions?
A: Yes! If you must dye your extensions, use only a semi- or demi- permanent hair colour. Never lift colour, only deposit it. Make sure to keep it within two shades of the hair’s original colour. And always do a strand test first, so you can ensure that the results will be what you want.
*Should you choose to dye your extensions on your own or by another stylist, LazRiel Salon does not take responsibility and will not replace extensions. Dyeing should be done by stylists in our salon only to ensure proper results.
Q: Where does the hair come from?
A: BABE hair comes from India and then is processed in China before it is shipped to the United States and then to our salon. Women in India donate their hair to the local temples.
Q: Will the extensions damage my hair?
A: If installed correctly and taken care of properly, your hair will not be harmed. For more information about caring for your hair, please ask your extension specialist.
