Clip in Human Hair Extension's FAQ




Q: What are clip in hair extensions?

A: ‘Clip in’ hair extensions are the latest edition to the hair extension industry, they are easy to fit and will take approximately 10mins to apply a full head set to your natural hair, there is no need for sticky glue or bonds you can simply put them in and take them out as desired.


Q: Does my hair have to be a certain length to wear hair extensions?

A: To wear clip in hair extensions you do need enough natural hair to thoroughly cover the top of the extensions so that when applied the hair extensions blend well with your own hair and maintain a natural look. 


Q: How many pieces of hair do you get in each set?

A: Each of our Human Hair sets contain 8 pieces which when applied correctly will distribute evenly around the head and blend beautifully with your natural hair. With our unique 8 piece sets you can use as little or as much of the hair as you would like so you really can achieve whatever hair style you desire. The set specification is as detailed below:

x1 - 8 inch hair piece with 4 clips attached

x2 - 2 inch hair piece with 1 clip attached to each piece

x3 - 4 inch hair piece with 2 clips attached to each piece

x2 - 5.5 inch hair piece with 3 clips attached to each piece


Q:  Are the clips already attached to the Extensions?

A: Yes, each of our clip in sets of hair already have the clips attached. Athenia Hair Extensions only use the highest quality slim line clips so that you can achieve a very natural look when applied. Each of our clips also have silicone tubing so that the Extensions have a more secure grip when applied to your natural hair. For further reference please see the photo below which shows our clip type and how they are attached to the hair pieces:



Q: Can you wash the hair extensions?

A: Yes you can wash the clip in hair extensions with any of your regular shampoos and conditioners, for further information on how to wash your clip in hair extensions please see our very useful aftercare guide.


Q: How long will clip in hair extensions last?

A: Our hair extensions are the very best in quality and are made from 100% human hair. Providing that you take good care of your human hair extensions (see our aftercare guide for useful tips) they are estimated to last for a minimum of 6 month to 1 year plus depending on how often you use them and how well you care for them.


Q. Can i style the hair extensions using a hair dryer, curling tong or straighteners?

A: Yes, When straightening or curling your human hair extensions we recommend applying a light mist of heat protection spray (which can be found on our site) to the extensions prior to using your straightening irons, curlers or blow dryer, this will help to protect the heat of the appliances from damaging the hair and a good quality heat protection spray will also leave your hair feeling smooth and silky after styling. Although you can blow dry the hair extensions all manufacturers recommend that you allow the hair to dry naturally after washing as this will help to maintain the overall condition of the hair extensions and in turn they will last a lot longer.


Q: Can you colour treat/dye the extensions?

A: As our hair is made of human hair they can be colour treated, we do not however directly recommend this due to a multitude of reasons that our out of our hands eg dye strength, colour, duration that the dye application is left on the hair etc as this all plays a factor on how well the colour takes to the hair (we also recommend if colour treating the hair to test a small patch of hair prior to colouring the whole set just to check the compatibility of the hair dye to the extensions). When taking care of your human hair extensions always remember that although the hair extensions are made of real human hair they are not replenished by the natural oils that your own hair has the benefit of, this means that extra care should be taken when looking after your human hair extensions. The hair extensions will last a lot longer and will look and feel a lot better if you don’t colour treat the hair.
