Can I straighten or curl the extensions?
This is one of the most commonly asked questions. To answer that, firstly you need to ask yourself if they are made from synthetic or human hair. If they are human hair, you can pretty much do anything that you do on your own hair, on them. However, for synthetic hair, you might want to give it a moment of thought.
Synthetic hair is NOT real/human hair and they are made from synthetic fibers ranging from wool, polyester, nylon or cotton depending on the brand of the extensions. Given that they do not have real human hair properties, the delicate nature of synthetic fiber makes them unsuitable to withstand heat from curling or flat irons.
Although some synthetic hair are told to be able to withhold low degrees of heat, repeatedly doing so will only wear them out very quickly. We cannot speak for other brands’ extensions, but for MONTARA’s, the extensions have ZERO tolerance to heat, thus any form of heating tools must be avoided at all times.
Our hair extensions are made of very delicate hair fabric to ensure they are weightless looks matte and feels like human hair. We do not apply any form of coating on them to make them look healthier and sleeker. Thus, any form of heat will cause the hair to melt or break.
If you’re going to style your hair, ensure you curl or straighten your own hair first then wear the extensions so that you do not accidentally end up damaging them.
