HAIR EXTENSIONS FAQ
WHAT TYPES OF EXTENSIONS?
Machine Weft Extensions- Loose hair is fed through a machine and sewn together, creating a track. Machine-tied wefts are usually thicker and a little bulkier than hand-tied wefts, but are sturdier and can handle many different types of installation methods. They are packaged as one long weft and designed to be cut with minimal shedding into the desired lengths needed for the install.
Hand-Tied Weft Extensions – Hair is individually hand-tied onto a hand-sewn weft by an experienced technician. This attention to detail ensures that hair is more strongly secured and does not shed, making the hair extensions last longer. They are also thinner, flatter, and more flexible than machine-tied wefts, allowing the hair extensions to lay closer to the scalp and provide a more natural look and feel.
In addition, it is recommended that hand-tied wefts are not cut to any desired length like machine-tied wefts. Doing so will cause the weft to unravel and hair to shed. Hand-tied wefts are typically already packaged into smaller widths to remedy this drawback and be installed accordingly.
Seamless Weft Hair Extensions – The Seamless Wef is 30% thinner than our traditional wefts while still maintaining its exceptional strength and durability. With our innovative technology, we’ve eliminated the short return hair normally found along the top of traditional wefts that cause matting and irritation at the scalp.
I-Tip Hair Extensions – Also known as Pro Tips, are Individual extensions that resemble the tip of a shoelace. Each tip of the hair is usually secured with micro rings or cylinders to strands of hair. This allows stylists to more precisely add length to specific areas. Hair extensions are looped through cylinders with one’s natural hair and then clamped down using pliers. Some cylinders have threads on the interior to prevent slippage. As micro links can slip down the hair as well as be moved up, they can be a cost-effective option. These can last from six to twelve weeks.
Tape-in Hair Extensions – A Tape-in or Adhesive Skin Weft hair extension is a hairpiece made from human hair and can be attached to the wearer’s scalp by a specialized tape system. Small Strips of tape are used to sandwich a person’s real hair and the extensions. The wefts can be applied to areas that may need extra volume, length, or highlights. The professional-grade adhesive provides for a quick and easy installation process.
Clip-in hair Extensions – Clip-ins are temporary extensions usually applied for one or two days. Extensions can be used multiple times. Great for wedding up-dos, Formal styles, or special events. Clip-in extensions are an excellent and extremely popular way to extend your look. Clip-ins are short-term solutions that can be applied or removed in minutes without the help of a stylist because extensions have tiny combs that attach to the root of the hair.
Halo Extensions – Bohyme Halo features an instant and secure application process that can be applied by anyone in minutes! Our Halo extensions are made with 100% Remy human hair. Simply wear the invisible wire over your crown and securely attach the clip-ins at the nape for longer, fuller hair. Be sure to pull out pieces of your natural hair to rest over the entire halo.
Lace Closures – Closures are commonly a small circular base made of silicon or mesh screen with hair attached. Closures are used as a top piece that completes a full head of extensions to make it seamless and natural. Closures can additionally be used to cover braid in methods of hair installation. They can also be used to add volume to the top of your head. Styling Tips: Closures can be used as a side part, on the crown, to cover thin areas, or to create bangs.

How long does my hair have to be?
In order to make make sure your extensions transition nicely from your normal hair, we recommend that you have at least ten centimeters of natural hair. If you already have long hair, don’t despair. Hair extensions will give your hair new life. If you’re not looking for length, you may want thickness or maybe color. Attaching colored streaks for a while can also liven up your hair.

Everybody can wear hair extensions, but keep in mind that hair extensions require more care than normal hair. However, this care is no more advanced than the care you should use on your natural hair to get the best results.

How much can hair extensions cost?
Depending on the hair extension quality you choose, the price will vary. It may be a good idea to be thoughtful about what quality to choose when attaching your extensions.
The slightly more expensive premium hair costs more, but if you know that you will be using extensions, again and again, that hair can be reused.
The quality of premium hair is also better, which means that it will last longer. If you go for Original hair instead, you’ll get a more affordable price point with a slightly shorter life span than Premium hair – it’s all a balance.
What’s the best way to shower with extensions?
Whether you have hair extensions or not, there are some things that you should avoid exposing your hair too. It’s a good idea to comb through your hair before you shower.
Never brush damp or wet hair. Wet hairs are much weaker than dry ones, and brushing wet hair increases the risk of hair fallout.
When shampooing your hair, you can massage the shampoo and cleanse the roots, then let it flow through the tips when rinsing. This will help you avoid unnecessary wear on your ends while still ensuring clean, fresh hair. Just as with your natural hair, you should also avoid using conditioner near your scalp. This weighs your hair down and closes off the pores on the scalp, which can cause hair loss, fungus formation, and an oily scalp.
This is also not advised when you have hair extensions in, as it may cause your extensions to become slippery, which makes the attachments slide off the hair. Instead, apply conditioner on your ends and rinse; no rubbing is necessary to make sure it is working.
Then apply for heat protection and let your hair air-dry or use a hairdryer on a low heat setting. Avoid rubbing your hair, and instead, squeeze out of the water with a towel. Rubbing your hair wears on the outer layers, which can result in dull hair. When the hair is completely dry, comb, brush, and style to get your desired look and results.
When using tape-on extensions, you will need to wait at least 48 hours before you shower to give the tape time to cure, which also gives you more long-lasting results.
When using our other methods, we recommend that you wait at least 48 hours before you shower so your attachments can harden and your scalp can rest. Wet hair weighs more than dry hair, meaning greater strain on your scalp.

Hair Extensions with Cambodian Hair Quality Hair – Perfect Hair Everyday!
Cambodian Hair is a common raw material for a high-quality hair extension. However, the processing of this hair is less time-consuming than that of Indian hair.
Since Asian hair is more similar to the European hair structure, the hair does not need to be thinned. The attached hair extensions will look natural even without this step.
Cambodian human hair can be bleached and subsequently dyed in different shades of color.
Hair Extensions with Malaysian Human
Malaysian Hair is a valuable raw material for a high-quality hair extension. The processing of this hair is less time-consuming than that of Indian and Chinese hair.
Since Asian hair is more similar to the European hair structure meaning the hair does not need to be thinned.
Hair Extensions with Burmese Human Hair
Burmese is similar to Indian hair in its characteristics. This hair also does not have to be thinned out before making the hair extensions.
However, since Americas and Europeans have the same lineage, Burmese hair is even more similar to European hair than Indian hair is.
This type of human hair extensions is applied by looping the single-strand micro-bead extensions through your own hair and clamping down with a pair of pliers and a metal bead to finish. So pretty much, your entire head is covered in these little beads. You need to go to a professional for the application of micro-bead hair extensions.
Sewn-in/Weave Hair Extensions
Sewn-in weave hair extensions are those who have super thick, coarse, or naturally super curly hair. Your own hair is braided tightly into corn rows throughout your entire head, and the extensions are then attached using a needle and a thread.
A pro about these hair extensions is that they work super well for girls who have tons of hair that is thick and a coarse, however, a con is that the tight braids seriously strain your scalp, therefore they are not advisable for those who have thin hair.
Also consider hygienic reasons – it may be difficult to wash and condition the scalp because the entire scalp is covered in cornrows. You need to go to a professional for the application of sewn-in hair extensions as well as consistently visit the salon (even six weeks or so) to ensure that the extensions are still sewn in correctly into place and if the braids need to be tightened up again.
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Clip-in hair extensions is the fastest, easiest, and least damaging type of hair extensions which you can apply all by yourself without having to go to a professional. Clip-in hair extensions are a temporary method of hair extensions, which means you can clip them in and out whenever you want.
Clip-in hair extensions are ideal if you are looking to add length and volume to your hair without the commitment or breaking the bank. Clip-in hair extensions are a popular choice among women all over the world for bridal and bridesmaids’ hairstyles as they can greatly enhance any hairstyle.
You need to take off your clip-in hair extensions when you shower, sleep, or swim, however, clipping them in takes only about 5 minutes. Always choose real remy human hair extensions as you will be able to heat style and wash them just like your own hair.
High-quality clip-in hair extensions will last you anywhere from 3-6 months up to a year or even longer, depending on how often you wear them and how well you take care of them. Malaysia Hair Imports raw human hair extensions are all high quality 100% real remy human clip-in hair extensions.
Tape-in Hair Extensions
Tape in the method of hair extensions involves taking each weft and literally taping them onto your own hair. The wefts are connected by wide bonds of tape and your own hair is placed between them and clamped around the strands.
Pros to this method of hair extensions is if you wear your hair extensions without a break, these can last in your hair for 6-12 weeks. Some cons to tape in hair extensions are that it can be difficult to tie your hair up how you want it since you can’t reposition the wefts after they are applied, and they can also begin tangling with your own hair as it starts growing out. You need to go to a professional for the application of tape in hair extensions.
Glue-in/Keratin Bond/Pre-bonded Hair Extensions
These hair extensions are attached to the hair with keratin bonds that are on top of the extensions, which are fused with a hot tool. This technique requires heat for application, and consistent visits to the salon to maintain them.
They can look great; however, it is best to not using oils, conditioners or any hot styling tools because this can weaken the bonds and make the extensions come out.
WHAT IS RAW VIRGIN HAIR?
Raw Virgin Hair is human hair that is in its natural state. No chemical changes, no color, has not been processed, and all cuticles are intact. All hair sold by Malaysia Hair Imports is Raw virgin hair.
HOW CAN I MEASURE THE LENGTH OF MY HAIR PRODUCTS?
Your Cambodian, Malaysian, Burmese hair extensions and wigs should be measured to the fall of the hair. Start 0 at the weft or top of wig cap and measure to the ends of the bundle. The Cambodian and Burmese Wavy, Cambodian Body Wave, Burmese Curly, and Kinky Curly hair extensions and wigs must be measured by pulling the hair straight. Again, start 0 at the weft; pull the hair straight from the ends, and the length will be at the tips of the hair.
Each bundle will not measure exact when it is still wrapped in its band, as tension can affect the fall of each strand.
CAN THE HAIR BE STRAIGHTENED OR CURLED?
Your new hair from Malaysia Hair Imports 100% Human Raw Virgin hair extensions can be styled like your own hair. You are able to use a thermal (hot) tool to straighten, curl, crimp, etc. Keep in mind the hair does not have all the nutrients that a strand growing from your scalp will.
Heat damage can cause breakage and dryness. Therefore, it is imperative that you use a heat-protecting product, always co-wash your hair, and protect it during sleep hours.
CAN I COLOR MY HAIR BUNDLES?
Any chemical processes should be done by a professional or at least consulted by one. This purchase is an investment for you and chemically altering the hair can possibly damage it. Although our Raw Virgin hair extensions can handle a coloring process very well, please be cautious.
Once the hair is chemically-altered incorrectly, the cuticle can become damaged and overexposed, causing fraying, breakage, dryness, and tangling. This in turn will affect the overall look and feel of your hair. Chemical damage has no reverse button, and we will not be held liable for any damages.
DOES OUR HAIR SHED?
Minimally, no hair is absolutely perfect. We have reinforced machine wefting, to minimize shedding to nearly none. You may see a few strands here or there while detangling or styling, but nothing troubling or excessive. The most effective way to avoid shedding is by sealing the wefts.
HOW LONG DOES THIS HAIR LAST?
Our 100% Human Hair Extensions and Wigs can last through multiple installs. However, the lifetime of your extensions depends heavily on how they are cared for. On average our customers can use their extensions from 6 to 8 months if cared for properly. Learn more about Caring for your Raw Virgin Cambodian, Malaysian and Burmese Hair Extensions
WHAT DOES CO-WASH HAIR MEAN?
Co-washing simply means washing with conditioner. It is a key task in extending the life of your extensions and keeping them healthy. We recommend a co-wash once a week with moisturizing conditioner to ensure your hair gets the nutrients and moisture it needs.
When you first receive your extensions, it is important to co-wash the hair, as it has been through Malaysia Hair Imports is a direct factory manufacturers’ that hands, packaging, etc.
Shampooing the hair can strip the hair entirely too much of its moisture. Always use WARM water, as hot water will overexpose the cuticle of the hair.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY HAIR?
All virgin hair reacts differently to product and regimens. Please be mindful to stay away from ingredients that can strip your extensions of moisture such as parabens, sulfate, and silicone. These products usually tend to have a high alcohol content which dehydrates the hair follicle of its nutrients.
Heavy oils are also not necessary to care for your extensions as it can weigh down your hair pattern. By rule of thumb, we recommend co-washing your bundles weekly and shampooing bi-weekly to rid your bundles of any excess product. Deep conditioning can be done as needed.
WHAT HAIR PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND I USE?
With no two heads being alike, our customers have a variety of experience with different textures as well as their daily maintenance of their extensions. Over the years we have collected knowledge regarding what works best.
Our customers highly suggest product lines such as Crème of Nature, Carol’s Daughter, Cantu, As I Am, and more. Even though our customers suggest these products, your extensions may not respond in the same manner.
HOW MANY HAIR BUNDLES SHOULD I ORDER?
The key to determining how many bundles to purchase depends on the lengths you are wanting. As all bundles are the same weight (3.3oz), the longer bundles have shorter wefts, and the shorter bundles have longer wefts. For a full sew-in, we recommend 3-4 bundles of hair. For lengths over 18”, we recommend ordering 4-5 bundles of hair.
If you desire an install with a lot of volume, you will need 4-5 bundles or 4 bundles with a closure. A closure is a great addition to your install, as you will have no leave-out. This is considered a full protective style, and none of your hair will be exposed.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR ME TO RECEIVE MY PACKAGE?
We have a standard 24-48 hour processing time prior to the shipment of 5-7 business days all orders. This processing timeframe is subject to change due to sales or holidays. Please review our shipping methods to receive an estimated timeframe of received your package.
