Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How much does it cost to get hair extensions?

The price is determined during your free consultation. Each client’s hair is different, and therefore prices cannot be predicted before the consultation. Price is determined by the experience of your extensionist, the amount of hair needed, and the desired length of the hair.

SHE by SoCap extensions are the best quality hair extensions on the market, and SoCap is the only company offering 100% keratin bonds. With keratin bonds, no glue or adhesive is used during the attachment process. This ensures a safe, healthy, and strong bond that is completely invisible. When applied properly, they are the best extensions money can purchase! Individual hair extensions (sports team colors, school colors, pink Breast cancer awareness strands, etc.) are individually priced, and start at $10 per strand.

How long do bonded hair extensions last?

Up to 6 months with proper application and maintenance. How fast your hair grows, and the length of your own hair determines how far the bonds can grow out without being seen.

Can someone with fine thin hair wear extensions?

Yes! With proper consultation mostly every hair type can wear hair extensions. It’s one of the most effective ways to add volume and thickness for amazing style.

How are the bonds attached to the hair?

The bonds are made of a 100% keratin substance that emulates the consistency of the keratin that is found naturally in your hair. A professional low heat fusion machine is used to apply to the bond causing your own hair to mesh together. Your hair will be completely surrounded by the keratin bond in order for it to secure into your hair. There is absolutely no glue or adhesive involved. The bonds are very small and flat. Proper application will cause your hair extensions to be completely invisible. No one will be able to tell that you are wearing extensions.

What type of hair is used in SHE SOCAP Hair Extensions?

SHE SoCap hair is European, 100% Remy hair. Remy hair is made from high quality human hair, that has been carefully selected to ensure that all of the cuticle of the hair is consistent and the same from root to end. This is important for less tangles and easier styling. Other companies will treat remy hair using harsh chemical processes which remove the cuticle, making hair fragile and easily broken. NON-Remy hair extensions have cuticles going against each other causing matting and tangles. SHE by SoCap uses only remy hair that has been gently hand-selected for the very best quality.

What amount of in- salon maintenance is needed?

Making a follow up appointment 2-4 weeks after your first set of extensions are applied is recommended. This is necessary to ensure that the extensions are still in excellent condition and that proper home maintenance is being done. Other maintenance check appointments are recommended every few months. It is normal to lose a few extension strands, but do not panic, this is normal.

What is the home maintenance?

Maintenance for your hair extensions is very easy.

  • A loop or special bristle brush is recommended and can be purchased at the time of your appointment.
  • A regular brush will not produce the same results.
  • Always start to brush the ends first, working your way up to the root.
  • Bonds can be brushed with the proper brush.
  • Never going to bed with hair wet.
  • Going to bed with hair wet will cause tangles and may be difficult to untangle once dried.
  • A loose braid should be worn during sleep to prevent tangles.
  • Do not use any oil based products.
  • Sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners should always be used.
  • You will receive further details during your appointment.
  • Brushing your hair on a regular basis is crucial to prevent tangles.
  • Never color, perm or use any chemical products on your hair without consulting your stylist first.
  • Avoid overly hot water for showers and shampoos.
  • Do not use over the counter products, such as anything at a drug or grocery store.

Can I use my hair tools the same way on my extensions?

Yes, all heat styling tools can be used on your hair. Just like normal hair, high heat can cause damage. Therefore low heat and the use of a thermal protector is recommended. When using curling wands and flat irons, avoid using them near the bonds and this will ensure that they do not also become damaged.

Can you swim in the pool or ocean?

Pool chemicals are not good for anyone’s hair! Rinse your hair with regular water before getting hair wet with pool or ocean water. This will keep your hair from absorbing as much bad water as possible. Shampooing your hair as soon as possible after getting out of the pool or ocean is very important. If you cannot shampoo, at least rinse with water and apply a leave in conditioner.

Can you pull your hair back?

Yes there are ways to conceal the bonds around your face for no detection.

How do you remove extensions?

Proper removal by BeUnique or a professional certified extensionist is crucial to allowing no damage to your own hair! You should not attempt to remove the extensions by yourself. During removal, a gentle solution and professional tool is used. There is no hair loss during the process. The hair from natural daily shedding from the scalp with be trapped in the bonds, but that is normal. Remember you lose an average of 100 strands a day naturally and those will be caught into the bonds.

Can tanning beds affect the bonds?

Any excessive heat can soften the bonds. Putting stress on the bonds after tanning including brushing or wearing a pony tail can cause slippage. Cover your hair while tanning to protect from direct rays and let the bonds cool before pulling your hair tight or brushing.
