Q. How are they attached to my own hair?
A. They clip under your own hair by small snap clips. The clips we use are high quality clips with a silicone insert so they will not slip or damage your hair and are extremely secure. Once fitted you will not be able to see the clips.
Q: How long do the extensions take to put in?
A. They clip in with little snap clips with combs on that are invisible once you've got them in. With practice, they should take 5 minutes to put in & about 60 seconds to take out!
Q. How long does my own hair need to be to use clip in extensions?
A. Different people have differing opinions but as a general rule we find as long as your hair is 6 inches or more you should be fine.
Q. How long do the extensions last?
A. Our extensions are the finest quality human hair, so they last as long as you want them to. If you look after your hair it is not uncommon for Foxy Locks extensions to last up to a year. If not treated well they will need to be replaced every three-six months. The more you look after them the longer they will last. We do not advise sleeping or swimming whilst wearing your Foxy Locks extensions.
Q. What type of Hair is used in Extensions?
A. We use 100% Remy Human Hair in our Extensions. Nothing beats the versatility of human hair extensions. Human hair, unlike synthetic hair can be straightened with a flat iron, curled with heat, or chemically treated to perm or dye the hair. Thin and fine hair becomes full and thicker. Short hair transforms to long, luxurious hair. We guarantee that the hair we sell is 100% Natural Human hair & is ethically sourced.
Q. Is your hair Remy, and what is the difference from other hair?
A. Yes, we only use Remy Hair in our extensions. The term Remy means 'Cuticle correct'. This means that only the finest virgin (Untreated & not previously coloured) hair is used. The hair differs from normal 'Silky' hair that's available on the market, because it is hand picked & aligned so that every single strand runs in the same direction that it grows from the scalp. This ensures that the cuticle on each hair is running the same way (downwards), in order to keep the hair shiny & soft. After picking & aligning, the hair goes through a gentle; but very complicated treatment process, to colour, straighten & treat the hair in the best way.
Q. What is the difference between 125g, 165g, 230g, 280g extensions?
A. The difference is the length and weight (thickness). We have a range of lengths and weights to suit all natural hair types. All our extensions are the same high quality. If your hair is fine and a shorter length Foxy Locks 125 grams Regular set should be suitable for you, this amount of hair is suited to finer hair and will add volume & length in a natural way. If your hair is fine/med and you are looking for more volume as well as some length we recommend our Foxy locks 165 grams Deluxe set, this set provides even more hair. It will also blend in with naturally thick hair and create lots of volume for all hair types. If you like your hair extra thick and want more length then the 230 grams Superior set is for you, this will work with Med/thick hair types on short or long hair. If you are wanting that statement look the 280 grams Luxurious set will add extreme thickness and length to naturally Med/thick hair.
Q. What clips do you use?
A. We use stainless steel metal clips with secure rubber grip. They weigh very little and are small, so they are very easy to hide. The total weight of clips is a small fraction of hair weight.
Q. Can they be straightened & curled?
A. Treat the hair as if it is your own. Use a flat iron/straightener or tongs, even when fitted, but as with your own hair, never use hot tools too often as you could dry the hair and it will not last as long. We do not recommend using hot tools that are higher than 170°C. We highly recommend using a heat protectant before using hot tools.
Q. How do I know which colour to choose?
A. We completely understand that choosing the right colour from a computer screen cannot always be easy, to ensure the exact colour please send us a sample of your own hair and we will try to match it, (please email for postal address) or you can simply upload your photo onto our colour match form. Hair extensions can usually be one shade lighter or darker than your hair & still blend in. It makes all the difference once they are clipped in. In general most people's hair is darker underneath than on. We offer an easy exchange policy if your hair extensions do not match, simply return them along with a sample of your own hair (if necessary) for an exchange of the correct colour or refund.
Q. Can I colour or tone the hair?
A. The hair can be coloured or toned if required. As a general rule it is easier to darken the hair than to lighten the hair. Blonde hair has been bleached more so more caution must be taken when carrying out a dying / toning process. We highly recommend having your hairdresser dye / tone the extensions as you will get the results you want, colouring or toning them yourself always poses a high risk of not coming out the shade you want. We do not advise attempting to colour the silicone tops as this may damage the silicone. Always test a small sample first & wash the hair prior to dying. We do not recommend bleaching the hair. Please note that dying or toning the extensions is done so at your own risk and voids any chance of return.
Q. Can I wash & blow-dry the hair extensions?
A. You can wash them as you would your own. Shampoo and conditioner. We also recommend using a hair treatment on them every few weeks, because the hair is not attached to your scalp it is not getting the oils it should be. Using a treatment/hair mask will help keep them looking healthier and shiny for longer! You will find that you don't need to wash your extensions too much, about every 3 weeks. The extensions can be blow-dryed, but it is not recommended to do it too often. It is best to let your hair extensions dry naturally after washing them.
