HOW DO I MEASURE THE LENGTH OF A BUNDLE?
Your Impressions hair extensions should be measured to the fall of the hair. Start 0 at the weft and measure to the ends of the bundle. Any hair except strait hair must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Start 0 at the weft, pull the hair straight from the ends, and the length will be at the tips of the hair. Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its elastic band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
HOW MANY BUNDLES SHOULD I ORDER?
For a full sew-in, we recommend a minimum 3 bundles of hair. For lengths over 18”, we recommend ordering 4-5 bundles of hair. If you desire an install with a lot of volume, you will need 4-5 bundles or 4 bundles and a closure.

Your new human hair extensions can be styled like your own hair! You are able to use a hot tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Please keep in mind the hair does't have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will. Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. So is imperative that you use a heat-protecting product, co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep.

Your new human hair extensions can be styled like your own hair! We do recommend using a professional stylist.

HOW SHOULD I WASH MY NEW HAIR?
We recommend Co-washing which means washing with conditioner. Shampooing the hair can strip the hair too much of its moisture. Co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs. Remember to use warm water not hot water.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY EXTENSIONS?
In general stay away from ingredients that can strip your extensions of moisture such as parabens, sulfate, and silicone. These products usually tend to have a high alcohol content which dehydrate. Heavy oils are not necessary to care for your extensions as it can weigh down your hair pattern. Co-wash your bundles weekly and shampoo bi-weekly to rid your bundles of any excess product.
