JuniorLabs® Fine Quality Hair Extensions are constructed with a “Shed FREE micro-machined triple weft” so that your hair extension is guaranteed to lay flat and appear natural.
Machine wefts can be cut. A small amount of glue should be used on the cut end of the weft to prevent it from unraveling and to ensure prolonged life and repeated use.
Before our “Virgin Hair” is distributed to customers it is inspected, shampooed and deep conditioned with JuniorLabs® professional salon grade hair care products. We only deal with “Virgin Malaysian” and “Virgin Brazilian” hair. Our hair will last a minimum of 12 months to 2 years with proper maintenance. A professional cosmetologist is recommended for proper care and styling of your hair extension. If you do not have a Stylist or Extension Installation Technician and are in NYC, please allow us to recommend one by contacting us.
How much hair will I need?
It really depends on the look you are going for. For partial weaves you will typically need anywhere from 6oz. to 7oz. & for full weaves 8oz. to 12oz. For people going for a fuller look, or working with hair 22 inches or longer, they should consider purchasing anywhere from 10 to 12 oz. Many of our customers purchase different lengths for natural layering (22″, 24″, & 26″).
How do you care for Virgin hair?
Because this is 100% human Remy hair you would care for it just as you would your very own. Wash and condition regularly.
Should I trim or cut my Virgin hair?
Please keep in mind that this is natural hair, so it needs the proper attention and care that you would give your own hair. Your own natural hair needs to be trimmed and cleaned up for it to be healthy and flow the way you would like Virgin Remy hair needs the same attention. We recommend trimming and cleaning up your ends after your initial installment of your extension. This will allow your hair to blend naturally.
How often can I wash my Virgin hair?
You may wash and condition once every week or as needed. Be sure to use our Straight Silk Spray for silky straight hair in half the time. Speeding up processing time by as much as 50%. As a heat protector from flat ironing, blow drying and hot rollers, simply spray throughout slightly damp hair and massage from root to tip.
REMY vs REMI
Tangling- Always choose Remy with a Y. Remy with a Y means that all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction as it would growing out of the scalp naturally. It comes from a single donor. Remy should not tangle or mat if the hair is a good grade. Remi with an I is a brand of low quality hair. It is readily available at most beauty supply stores. In general it has been colored (#1, #2, #3 etc) or chemically treated including perming, texturing (Yaki), highlighting etc. It has already been dyed so it WILL NOT color well.
VIRGIN vs NON VIRGIN
To qualify as Virgin hair, it must be completely unprocessed and meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, chemically processed in any way. Virgin hair is likely to have a few strands of gray or white hair since it is in its natural color and has not been dyed. This is a natural characteristic of 100% Virgin hair. It usually comes in a color range around #1b to #1 natural dark brown to black.
Virgin hair is the hair you want if you are going to dye the hair. All of our Virgin Hair can be colored with professional color permanent or semi-permanent.
NOTE: It is possible to get Virgin Remi with (i). Virgin Remi is hair that has been swept off the floor from a Virgin donation station and then sewn onto a weft. Although the hair has not been colored the cuticles ARE NOT in alignment so it will tangle even though it is Virgin hair. Buyers Beware.
