Hair Extensions – Savannah Hair Stylist

We frequently are asked our advice when it comes to hair extensions. Unfortunately, at this time, we do not provide or sell hair extensions. We do offer clip in hair extension placement for your big day. If you think you might like them, I have a few recommendations before you shop.
Please ensure that you purchase 100% human hair. We cannot use heat tools on synthetic hair. Even if the package says human hair, it may be a blend of only 10-30% human hair, and the rest, synthetic plastic fibers, which could melt when used with a curling iron. Look for packages that say can be used with heat tools.
Also be sure that they have not been chemically straightened. Sometimes even if it is 100% human hair, they are originally curly or kinky strands that they chemically straighten. These will not hold any curl.
Some hair extensions have a wax or other similar product coating on the hair to help it look shiny and new in the packaging. Be sure to wash your hair extensions to remove this coating prior to use. Washing them first will help the hair to look more natural, blend in with your hair more seamlessly and also help them to hold curl well. You can use your regular shampoo and conditioner to wash them. Then gently comb them with a wide toothed comb and lay flat on a towel to dry.
There isn’t a specific brand that we recommend. but as long as you make sure whichever ones you’re going to buy are 100% human hair and not chemically straightened you should be fine!
Happy hair shopping!
