Frequently Asked Questions

What are LetMeShine extensions made from?

We offer only high-quality, 100% human Remy hair. All of the hair used to create our products have been supplied by human donors. All cuticles have been aligned from root to tip and none of the hair has been chemically processed.

What is Remy Human Hair?

Remy human hair is the highest grade of real human hair. It is the preferred choice for hair extensions and similar products because it looks the most natural. It’s also more durable. Because the cuticles of the hair are kept intact and not stripped, human Remy hair is always the better option. Your hair extensions will remain soft, shiny and free of tangles.

What is the difference between Remy and Virgin hair?

Many believe that Remy is a brand name. It’s actually the term used to describe extensions that have the hair cuticles aligned in the same direction as hair naturally grows. Virgin hair describes hair that has not been chemically processed. It’s never been relaxed, permed or dyed. The cuticles are healthy and complete while the structure of the hair remains intact.

What is the difference between synthetic and human hair extensions?

Hair extensions made from human hair can be treated just like your own hair. For example, you can color it, style it with heated styling tools, wash it and dry it. Synthetic hair cannot be treated in the same fashion. It can be difficult to style and blend with your own natural hair. Because there are so delicate, synthetic hair extensions usually don’t last as long as human hair extensions.

Why is Remy human hair the preferred choice for hair extensions?

Remy human hair will give you the most natural look, feel and style. It is the highest quality human hair product on the market and LetMeShine Hair is proud to use it. LetMeShine extensions have been carefully sorted and selected so only the best strands of Remy human hair find their way into our products. This is what makes our product so much different than the rest.

How long do LetMeShine extensions last?

The lifespan of your LetMeShine extensions will depend on how they have been cared for and how often they were worn. With average use, LetMeShine hair extensions can last up to a year or even longer. To get the most out of your extensions, follow our care tips and instructions.
