Frequently Asked Questions

We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase of Love Your Locks Extensions. To help you have the very best experience with our products, we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Listed below are some of the most frequently asked questions about clip-in hair extensions. If you need additional information, please Contact Us and we will respond to you within 24 hours.

What are clip-in hair extensions?

Clip-ins are the easiest type of hair extensions to apply, and because they require no sewing or gluing, they are also best for your natural hair. These quick, do-it-yourself extensions can be perfectly matched to your own hair, giving you the length and added fullness that you have always desired. Clip-in extensions can be clipped in place and removed in minutes and are virtually undetectable. They are quick, easy, and affordable!

How are these extensions attached to my hair?

They clip under your own hair with small snap clips. We use only high-quality clips with a silicone insert so they are extremely secure; they will not slip or damage your hair.

How long do extensions take to put in?

Our clips make it super easy to attach and remove the extensions. With practice, it should take you about five minutes to attach the extensions and about one minute to remove them.

What length does your hair have to be to use clip-in extensions?

People have differing opinions on how long your hair needs to be, but as a general rule, we find that if your hair is six inches or longer, you should be fine.

How long do the extensions last?

Love Your Locks Extensions are made of the finest quality human hair. If you take care of your extensions properly, they can last up to a year (see hair care instructions). If not treated well, they will need to be replaced every four to six months. The more you look after them, the longer they will last.

What type of hair is used in Love Your Locks Extensions?

We use 100 percent Remy human hair in our extensions. This makes them very versatile. Human hair, unlike synthetic hair, can be heat-styled, permed and dyed.

What is the difference between the 120g and 160g sets?

Love Your Locks Extensions come in two different amounts to suit your natural hair and your preferred look. Most people with thin to medium hair may need only the 120g set. People with medium to thick hair will most likely need the 160g set. Purchase of Love Your Locks Extensions 160g set will guarantee that your natural hair blends seamlessly with the extensions.

Some companies advertise that these weights reflect the weight of the hair alone, but factor in the weight of the clips as well. Love Your Locks Extensions gives you the full 120g or 160g of hair.

You sell only Remy hair. How does that differ from other hair being sold?

Remy human hair is the highest quality hair used for extensions. It is composed of premium young 100 percent natural human hair. Each strand is specially treated with the latest technology to smooth the cuticles in one direction. Because Remy hair cuticles are intact and unidirectional, they are much less likely to tangle or clump.

Non-Remy hair often has the roots and ends mixed up. This creates more tangling, since the cuticles are NOT unidirectional.

What kind of clips do you use?

We use only high-quality metal clips with a silicone insert so they have a secure grip; they will not slip or damage your hair. They weigh less than one gram each and are small, so they are easy to hide. The weight of the clips is not included in the weight of the hair you purchase.

Can I use heating tools on my Love Your Locks Extensions?

Yes. You can straighten, blow-dry, curl and style human hair extensions. We do, however, recommend using a heat protectant on the hair before using hot tools.

How do I know which shade to choose?

Hair extensions can usually be one shade lighter or darker than your own hair and still blend with it. In general, most people's hair is darker underneath than it is on the surface, where it is exposed to the sun.

If your hair extensions do not match or blend with your natural hair, we offer an easy exchange policy. Simply return the unworn extensions, along with a sample of your own hair (if necessary) for replacement for the correct color, or for a refund.

Can I dye my extensions?

Love Your Locks Extensions can be dyed. As a general rule it is easier to darken the hair than to lighten it. Always test a small sample of hair first. Dyed extensions are non-returnable.

Can I wash my extensions?

Yes. You can wash them just as you do your own hair (see hair care instructions). Use shampoo and conditioner. We also recommend using a hair treatment on them every few weeks to supply the oils that your own hair gets from your scalp. The hair treatment will keep your extensions looking healthy and shiny.

You can blow-dry your extensions but we don't recommend that you do this too often. It is best to let your extensions dry naturally after they are washed.

Where else can I buy Love Your Locks Extensions?

Love Your Locks Extensions can be purchased only here at LYLExtensions.com. If you see Love Your Locks Extensions anywhere else online, they are counterfeits and will most likely be of a lower quality. Please contact us if you see Love Your Locks Extensions offered elsewhere.

How long does shipping usually take?

We will do our very best to process and ship your order promptly. Shipping times vary depending on your geographic location. U.S. delivery usually takes 3-5 business days; on rare occasions it can take just over one week. International shipping (outside the U.S.) usually takes 6-10 business days, but on rare occasions can take up to three weeks depending on customs.

Please do not contact us until the expected shipping time has lapsed, as we are unable to investigate until the end of a reasonable shipping time period. We appreciate your understanding.
