Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS VIRGIN HAIR?
Virgin Hair is human hair that is in its natural state. No chemical changes, no color, has not been processed, and all cuticles are intact. All Mane Hair Bundles are guaranteed to be pure virgin hair: un-dyed, untreated, healthy, and beautiful. Therefore, you can dye, bleach, and perm.
HOW CAN I MEASURE THE LENGTH OF MY BUNDLES?
Your Mane Hair Bundles should be measured in its straight state by pulling the hair straight if it has curls. Start 0” at the weft and measure to the end of the bundle in its straight state after it’s stretched out. Please note, given it’s human made, there could be a of +/- 0.15” variance.
CAN THE HAIR BE STRAIGHTENED OR CURLED?
Your new Mane Hair Bundles can be styled like your own natural hair. All styling tools can be applied to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the vitamins and nutrients that an alive strand growing from your scalp will. Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protecting hair product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours using bonnets, satin pillow cases, etc.
CAN I COLOR MY BUNDLES?
We highly recommend chemical processes such as dying and perming to be done by a seasoned and licensed professional. This purchase is an investment for you and chemically altering the hair can possibly leave long lasting damages that can’t be undone. Although our virgin hair bundles can handle a coloring process very well, please be cautious, as any chemical treatment can leave lasting, long term damages. Once the hair is chemically-altered incorrectly, the cuticle can become damaged and overexposed, causing fraying, breakage, dryness, and tangling. This in turn will affect the overall look and feel of your hair. Chemical damage has no reverse button, and we will not be held liable for any damages.
DOES THIS HAIR SHED?
Minimally, overall customers are raving about the quality of Mane Hair Bundles. The most effective way to avoid shedding is by sealing the wefts. We sell all the necessary products at our brick and mortar, Best Beauty Supply SINCE 1994 in Lynnwood, WA.
HOW LONG DOES THIS HAIR LAST?
Our Mane Hair Bundles can last through multiple installs. However, the lifetime of your bundles is subjective and relies heavily on how they are cared for and used post installation. On average, our customers can use their bundles up to 6 months if cared for properly.
WHAT DOES CO-WASH MEAN?
Co-washing simply means washing with a conditioner. It is a key task in extending the life of your bundles and keeping them healthy for long term use. We recommend a co-wash once a week with a moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs. Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much of its natural oils and moisture. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY HAIR?
All virgin hair reacts differently to product and hair care/treatment routines. Please be mindful to stay away from ingredients that can strip your bundles of moisture such as parabens, sulfate, and silicone. These products usually tend to have a high alcohol content which dehydrates the hair follicle of its nutrients. Heavy oils are also not necessary to care for your bundles as it can weigh down your hair pattern. By rule of thumb, we recommend co-washing your bundles weekly and shampooing bi-weekly to cleanse your bundles of any excess product(s) and/or toxins. Deep conditioning can be done as case by case.
HOW MANY BUNDLES SHOULD I ORDER?
On average, customers order up to 1-2 bundles for DIY ponytails, 3-4 bundles for a full installation. As we always advise our customers, it really comes down to what your goal is with the full protective style and desired end result. We highly encourage customers to consult with a seasoned, trusted, and licensed stylist if they want more information.
