We understand that it can be hard determining your ideal Luxy color match from your computer screen, which is why we offer a tester weft located in the bottom compartment of each Luxy box. This compartment should be opened first to determine whether or not the shade is the right match for you. If it's not an ideal match, we are more than happy to accommodate a return or exchange on packages that have not been opened or tampered with.
What should you do with the tester weft?
It can be taken out of it's netting but not the gold security tie that secures it to the card. You're welcome to take out the card from the box to hold the weft up close to your hair for color comparison purposes. We kindly ask that you treat this weft with care as it is apart of the full set. The tester weft cannot be dyed, cut, or tampered with in any other way as it will no longer be returnable if it's in this condition.
We do not recommend to wear your Luxies outside when it is windy or rainy as harsh weather conditions can damage your Luxies - we call this "weather damage". Strong winds can cause your Luxies to tangle with your hair, and rain can cause your Luxies to become dry. As a kind reminder, your extensions should rarely come in contact with water - only when they are being washed every 15-20 wears, or when there is major product build up. We encourage you to be mindful of weather conditions when wearing your Luxies outside to ensure they have a long and healthy lifespan.
We recommend to set your tool at 120C/250F, as anything higher runs the risk of damaging the hair. The reason why we recommend opting for a lower heat setting is because it will prolong the lifespan of your set. While our own hair may be able to handle a high heat setting, our hair is also constantly getting revitalized from the scalp, whereas hair extensions don’t get that sort of nutrition.
For best appearance, clip-in hair extensions should be stored away when completely dry. The Luxy Hair box your extensions arrive in are specifically designed so you can reuse the box as a storage container for your Luxies.
Alternatively, you can also store your set in an airtight container like a shoe box. We recommend to store them away from direct sunlight, preferably in a dark place like a closet shelf, cabinet or dresser drawers. You can also watch our YouTube tutorial video on How To Store Clip-In Hair Extensions.
While other brands may advertise that it's ok to swim with hair extensions in, however, we at Luxy Hair do not advise you to wear your clip-in hair extensions while swimming or taking a shower. You can definitely wear them to the beach or by the pool, however, we do not recommend getting into the water with them (unless your hair is tied up and will not get wet).
Luxy Hair extensions are made of 100% remy human hair, so they won't get ruined if they get wet, however, when wet, they might get tangled with your own hair and cause damage to both your hair and the extensions.
We also don't advise that you have your hair extensions clipped in while playing sports, because like mentioned above, they might get tangled with your own hair and cause damage to both your hair and the extensions.
We do not recommend to wear your clip-in hair extensions while sleeping, as this can cause excessive tangling with both your hair and the extensions which can potentially damage your set.
When selecting products for your hair extensions, we recommend to choose high quality products specifically formulated for dry and damaged hair, as they will help keep the strands healthy and nourished. Heat protectant sprays, serums and any other leave-in conditioners or treatments are also highly beneficial and will prolong the lifespan of your Luxy Hair extensions. We also recommend using only sulfate-free and alcohol-free shampoos and conditioners on your set.
Just like your own hair, Luxy Hair extensions can be straightened, blow-dried, styled and curled. In order to preserve and extend the lifespan of your Luxy Hair extensions, however, we suggest to always use a heat protectant spray prior to styling your set.
Additionally, we recommend to only use a low heat setting of 120C/250F, as anything higher runs the risk of damaging the hair. The reason why we recommend opting for a lower heat setting is because it will prolong the lifespan of your set. While our own hair may be able to handle a high heat setting, our hair is also constantly getting revitalized from the scalp, whereas hair extensions don't get that sort of nutrition.

Since Luxy Hair Extensions are made of 100% remy human hair, they can be dyed a darker colour or toned by a professional hair colourist, who has had previous experience working with hair extensions.
If you do decide to get them dyed, we recommend for a one clip weft to be tester first prior to dyeing/toning the full set to ensure that you are satisfied with the results. We strongly do not recommend getting hair extensions coloured a lighter shade, as it will require them to be bleached. Bleaching is a harmful chemical process that can alter the quality of your set, and even damage it.
If you are in-between shades, we recommend going for the lighter colour and taking your set to a professional hair colourist to have them dye your set a darker shade in order to achieve an overall match.
Similarly, if you have highlights, we recommend going for a shade that matches the lightest highlight in your hair, and having a professional hair colourist add in lowlights to your set.
Since hair extensions do not receive natural oils from the scalp like our own hair, they do not need to be washed as often. We suggest only washing your Luxies every 15-20 wears or when there is too much product build-up and they become unmanageable to style. Please keep in mind that the less you wash your Luxies, the longer they will last you.
It is highly recommended to use sulfate-free and alcohol-free hair products, as these ingredients can dry the hair out. We also recommend to frequently use a deep conditioning mask for at least 4-6 hours (or overnight) after washing your Luxies, as this will help retain moisture and keep the hair smooth and silky. It's also good to use hair masks on your extensions every now and again to ensure they remain nourished and healthy. Click here for a blog post on our top 5 DIY hair masks.
You can wash your Luxy Hair extensions the same way you would your own hair. Always use shampoo first and then apply a generous amount of conditioner from top to bottom. The best way to dry your hair extensions is to lay them flat on a clean towel and let them air dry. You can watch our tutorial on how to wash Luxy Hair extensions below.
