How to decide on hair extension length?

See the Hair Length Chart below to get an approximate length for ordering your hair extensions. Please note that the hair is always measured in a complete straighten state. Therefore curly hair will be shorter than straight hair but it has more volume for the same weight. The length of wavy hair lies in between the straight and curly.

How To Decide on Hair Extension Length

Before you decide on a length, be sure to consider whether you want straight, wavy or curly hair extensions. Hair length depends on the texture you choose. Straight human hair is longer because it is laid completely flat when measured. Straight Virgin hair is true to it’s length, wavy hair is usually about 1.5″ shorter and curlier hair is usually about 2.5″ shorter than straight hair. It’s very important to choose a length which you will be happy and comfortable  with.

What is virgin hair?

Refers to hair that is completely unprocessed, and intact. To qualify as virgin hair, it must meet rigorous standards including: not been permed, dyed, colored, bleached, chemically processed in any way. This also means it comes from a single donor, and all the cuticles are intact, running in the same direction.

Is virgin hair the same as human hair?

Virgin hair is chemically unprocessed human hair, which is collected from a single donor (the donor could be Indian, Malaysian, Brazilian, etc). The virgin hair is remy hair that has not been altered by dyes, perms, bleaches, or harsh washes.

What is Remy hair?

High quality “remy” is collected directly from a woman’s head and has been cut while in a ponytail, from a single donor, and is the full length of the strands. This collection process guarantees that the cuticles will stay aligned and the end result will be pure remy hair.

What is weaving?

Also known as a sew-in-weave, weaving is a commonly used method of installing hair extensions by sewing tracks of hair directly to your cornrows.

Can the weft be cut?

Our wefts are not meant to be cut. If you need to cut your weft you must seal the ends so that hair will not shed from the cut end of the weft. 

How many bundles do I need?

Inches 12-16 we suggest 2-3 bundles for a full sew in.
Inches 18-28 we suggest 3-4 bundles for a full sew in.

After sewing in a weave, how long should I have it in before removing it?

Your own natural hair will grow about 1 to 1½ inches every 8 to 12 weeks, so depending on how long you leave it in for, you may need to tighten it or remove it as you desire. For high quality hair, you may have it removed to wash and restore, and then get it weaved in again.

Can I swim while wearing a weave?

Yes, you may go swimming in a pool, but we recommend applying a hydrating/moisturizing conditioner to the hair before and after entering the pool to avoid tangling. We also recommend making one or two large braids to keep your hair in place to further avoid tangling.

If you plan to swim in the ocean, we recommend wearing a swimming cap because the ocean’s salt water can be harsh. We also recommend washing and conditioning the hair as soon as you are done swimming.

Can the hair be straightened or curled? 

Your new virgin hair extensions can be treated as if it is your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will. Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protecting product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours. 

How do I sleep with my weave on?

Loosely braid or twist your weave, and wrap the hair in a satin scarf or bonnet before going to bed to keep the hair from tangling overnight.

What does density mean in a wig?

Density is defined as how thick or thin the hair on your lace wig will be. The standard and most popular choice is 120% which is Medium Thick Density. The average human head is considered to be between 100%-120%.

Sassy Secret Stock wigs have 80% (light) density around the perimeter and 120% (medium) elsewhere, unless otherwise specified.

Can I curl or straighten my human hair wig?

Yes, you can curl or straighten a human hair wig to achieve the styles you desire. Before using heat styling tools, please use a heat protection spray on the hair to prevent hair damage from the heat.

How often should I wash my human hair wig?

We would suggest washing your wig every 10-14 days. The wash cycle also depends on each individual according to how often the wig is worn, what products were applied to the wig, etc. 

Caring for Your Virgin Hair

The 12 Golden Rules To Care For Virgin Remy Human Hair Extensions.
1. Brush before bed and before washing to ensure there are no natural occurring tangles caused by wind or friction
2. Do not brush wet hair as that is when hair follicles are at their most vulnerable. 
3. Use an Organic and sulfate free shampoo. Sulfate strips hair of natural oils, as there is no direct supply of nutrients from your scalp into the extension strands, its vital that you use a no sulfate shampoo to avoid drying the hair out.
4. To avoid damaging the hair extensions, the cuticles and your scalp, only wash with warm water. 
5. Wash the hair gently in a downward motion with your palms, do not scrub or bunch the hair together as this will cause open cuticles to rub against each other causing friction.
6. Rinse between each wash, and wash only 1-2 times.
7. Whilst wet, add 2-3 drops of natural oil such as Almond or Coconut by gently applying it evenly over the hair, these oils will penetrate the cuticles and add moisture to hair extensions.
8. Natural oils do the work of most conditioners without the added chemicals and silicons, natural is always best.
9. Finally, lower the shower head and rinse your hair (not scalp) with cold water, this is known as an Arctic Rinse  it will close the cuticles to lock the moisture and nutrients from the oil in, leaving you with nutrient rich hair extensions.
10. Let your hair air-dry at home, take 2-3 hours to wash and naturally dry your hair – Do not use heat as this will swell and dry your strands.
11. Apply a small amount of Argan, Almond or Coconut oil 2-3 times a week or when required. Argan oil is a great finishing oil for styling and frizz, however its a dry oil and does not moisturize the hair as well as Almond or Coconut.
12. For long lasting hair extensions, moisturize your hair as you do your skin, it makes perfect sense.
Wear a silk scarf over your hair to prevent breakage when you sleep. 
Dyed and restyled hair needs special care, deep condition once a week is better.
You’d better use a heat protection when using a heated appliance. the temperature should stay in the safe zone of 300 to 350 degrees.
When swimming, wear a cap to protect your hair from chlorinated water. Shampoo and condition your hair right after swimming.

What is the best way to store a wig?

A wig stand or mannequin is ideal. It will help keep the hair from becoming tangled and will help to maintain shape. Also, see if you can find a cool, dry spot to keep wigs in the best condition. 

Whats the difference between a silk closure and a lace closure?

Which is better? The silk closure has 2 layers: the Swiss lace and then a silk fabric on top. The hairs are then individually woven through the silk fabric and secured under the lace. The hairs coming through the silk fabric give the appearance of a scalp. The lace is the same thing without the silk fabric. Individual hairs are woven and secured directly through the lace. There isnt a concrete answer of which is better than the other, it is totally YOUR personal preference.
