Frequently Asked Questions

What is Remy Human Hair?

Remy Human Hair is the highest grade of real, human hair that is a preferred choice for hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs, because it achieves the most natural look and last longer than non-Remy hair. It is considered to be the finest quality of human hair because the cuticles are kept intact and not stripped, like in most other Non-Remy hair extensions. Preserving the hairs’ cuticles and aligning them in a unidirectional fashion creates extensions that are completely natural in appearance. This process ensures that the hair remains super soft, shiny, silky and completely tangle-free throughout its lifetime.

 

What is the difference between Remy & Virgin hair?

It is a common misconception that Remy is a brand name applied to some hair extensions. The term Remy is used to describe extensions where all the hair cuticles are aligned in the same direction (roots at the top of the weft and ends at the bottom) just as your natural hair is already. Virgin hair is used to describe hair that has not been chemically processed in any way. It’s free from any chemicals such as relaxer, perm, silicone, or color dyes.  There has been no damage to the cuticles or the true structure of the hair.

 

What is the difference between synthetic and human hair extensions?

Hair extensions made from human hair can be dyed, heated (curled or straightened), styled, washed, and treated like your own natural hair. Hair extensions made from synthetic hair are sensitive to the sun, don’t last as long as human hair, are difficult to style, and cannot blend in as well with your real hair. Expect to pay anywhere from $60-$100 for a full head of Synthetic hair extensions, and anywhere from $150-$500 for human hair extensions.

 

What kind of hair does Crowned Hair Co. offer?

Currently, we offer "virgin" Remy human hair extensions. All of the hair used to create our extensions, closures, frontals, etc. have been collected by human donors, all cuticles are aligned from root to tip, and has not been chemically processed.

 

Does Crowned Hair Co. sell Brazilian, Malaysian, Peruvian, Cambodian, Russian, or Mongolian hair?

No. We are aware of the popular misconception of describing hair as Brazilian, Malaysian, etc... however hair collecting does not occur in Brazil, Malaysia, Peru, or Mongolia. Hair extensions labeled under such names are either Indian or Chinese hair and typically Non-Remy hair.

 

What is the source of Crowned Hair Extensions?

Our Remy human hair extensions are sourced from regions in Southeast Asia and India and manufactured in our privately owned factory in Asia.

 

How long do Crowned Hair Extensions last?

The lifespan of Crowned Hair Co. extensions are determined by how well they are taken care of. The lifespan of our Gold Label hair extensions is 6 months to a year depending on how often they are worn and how well they are taken care of. The lifespan of our Black Label hair extensions is at least 12 months. Please remember that excessive heat and/or color can result in the reduction of its natural pattern of the hair.

 

What color is Crowned Hair Extensions?

Typically, most bundles will be received in a natural brown (1b). Considering, each bundle is collected from an individual donors, some bundles may vary in darkness or lightness. We will always try our best to pair bundles with it's matching variation.

 

Does Crowned Hair Extensions experience shedding?

Any hair that has been manufactured and stitched onto a weft is entitled to experience minimum shedding. However, to prevent any and all shedding we recommend applying weft sealer along the track of each bundle of hair upon the installation. This will assist in preventing shedding.

 

How much hair is in each bundle?

Each bundle of hair weighs 3.5 ounces. The longer the length of the hair, the shorter the length of the weft. Shorter lengths of hair have longer weft lengths.
