Hair extensions come in a variety of types and styles. You can choose from clip in hair extensions, keratin (or fusion) hair extensions, and tape in hair extensions. Clip in hair extensions can be worn and taken off every night. Keratin hair extensions are great for a more permanent wear because they can last for 3 months or more. And tape in hair extensions are for medium-term wears. Tape in hair extensions are relatively new but are gaining in popularity very quickly.
Volure's hair extensions are known for their soft texture, and excellent quality. We have clients using our hair extensions all across South Africa and abroad. These in demand hair extensions can be bought at our shop in Johannesburg or delivered to Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban and anywhere else in South Africa.
While many think hair extensions are a new fashion item, they have actually been used in one form or another for centuries. Hair extensions were quite popular (among the elite) in Ancient Egypt and have been used since then quite extensively across many societies. Today's hair extensions are much more versatile in that they can be installed in a variety of ways. From clip in hair extensions that can be removed every night, to fusion hair extensions that use melted keratin to attach the extensions hair to your natural hair, to micro loop hair extensions that try to achieve the same goal without the melted keratins, the options are many. At Volure, we offer all these different types of extensions hair but recommend clip ins and keratin bonds (fusion extensions hair) most to our clients. Micro loops are okay, but have a tendency to slip off quite easily especially with silky hair.
Although the two terms remy hair and virgin human hair extensions are used interchangeably, they are actually different. Human hair extensions that are remy are not always virgin.
Virgin hair extensions are made from 100% real human hair that has never been altered by a chemical process. For extensions to quality as virgin hair extensions, they must NOT be permed, bleached, coloured, dyed or chemically processed in any way. Virgin hair extensions have cuticles that are intact and uni-directionally aligned leading to smooth, tangle free hair. They are the highest quality human hair extensions available on the market. Please note that at Volure, our natural black hair extensions are virgin. All other coloured hair extensions have clearly gone through chemical processing to achieve the desired end colour. Even curly hair extensions may not be considered strictly virgin. This is because some curly hair extensions undergo a chemical process to achieve the curls. In summary, Volure offers virgin 100% human hair extensions only in the dark colours, and while our blonde, grey and even curly hair extensions end products may not be 100% virgin, they are made from the highest quality virgin hair available.
Remy hair extensions are also 100% human hair extensions. However, in contrast to virgin hair extensions, remy hair extensions have undergone some type of processing, which makes them non-virgin. Not all remy hair extensions are of the same quality. There is good remy hair and terrible remy hair. You must ensure that you go to a trusted supplier that won't sell you remy hair extensions that have been cuticle stripped with a chemical process. If this is the case, what you will end up getting is poor quality hair that tangles quite quickly (usually after the first wash when the silicone used to make the hair look healthy is washed away). At Volure, even our remy hair extensions (e.g. blonde clip ins) are virgin quality and cuticle intact. So you still get the smooth feel and manageability of true virgin hair.
The hair used in hair extensions comes from all over the world, but primarily from India and South East Asia. However, you will notice that different hair extensions have different names (e.g. Brazilian hair extensions, Peruvian hair extensions, etc). Please note that this does not mean that the hair is actually from Brazil, especially in the case of Brazilian and Peruvian hair. Most Brazilian and Peruvian hair are also from India or Asia. Depending on the supplier, Indian hair may likely come from India and Malaysian hair from Malaysia. For the most part these names are simply labels to categorise the various hair extensions by how they feel.
So Brazilian hair extensions are some of the best known types of extensions hair. Brazilian hair extensions are thick, full and smooth. Brazilian hair extensions have gained a reputation as the go to hair when you want that vibrant bouncy look. Peruvian hair extensions are very thick and almost coarse. Peruvian hair extensions are usually great for ethnic hair (e.g. African hair) or coarse Caucasian hair. Peruvian hair extensions give great volume but must be managed as the heavy thickness can make styling a bit hard initially. A lot of Indian hair extensions actually do come from India. Indian hair extensions are known for their extreme softness and almost feathery feel to the touch. Indian hair extensions are easy to style and manipulate and are great for clients with very thin hair. Finally, Malaysian hair extensions are the perfect option if you want lightweight, full bodied and sleek hair. The hair is quite dark and has a very strong shine. Malaysian hair extensions come from Malaysia and are becoming increasingly popular by the day. One of the reasons our clients love Malaysian hair extensions is that they are quite easy to style and maintain.
Regardless of the source of the claimed source of the hair extensions, what is most important is that you are getting either virgin or virgin quality remy hair. If you get this right and like the feel of the hair and how it matches with your natural hair, you are all set. Volure only offers virgin hair or virgin hair that has been lightly processed (hence it remains virgin quality). Because of this you can be sure that any hair extension you get from Volure will not only last you but feel great throughout.
There are many different types of hair extensions available in the market today. The choice of which type you go for will depend on how permanent you want the installation, how natural you want it to look, and to a lesser extent your budget. The following summarises the different types of hair extensions:
TAPE IN HAIR EXTENSIONS: Tape in hair extensions are basically small weft pieces with sticky tape on one side. Tape in extensions are relatively new and as a result untested. The installation involves sandwiching your natural hair between the weft and the sticky tape to make for a strong hold. Before putting on tape extensions, it is important that your scalp and natural hair are shampooed well to get rid of any dirt and oils. Clean hair ensures that the tape in extensions have a strong hold. When installed properly, tape in hair extensions are quite comfortable to wear and can be removed with minimal effort.
KERATIN HAIR EXTENSIONS: Keratin bonds are considered permanent hair extensions. This is because a keratin hair extension installation can last for up to 3 months or more. Keratin hair extensions are not really permanent hair extensions as they can be removed any time. Clients are advised to have them removed after a maximum of 2 months to avoid dreading around the connection points. Keratin hair extensions and any other type of bonding hair extensions should only be installed and removed by an experienced stylist to avoid damaging your natural hair.
MICRO RING HAIR EXTENSIONS: Micro ring hair extensions are attached to your own hair using a metal ring. These hair extensions are installed on a strand-by-strand basis, and they do not require the use of hot irons or melted keratin. Together with your natural hair, the extensions are fed through a tiny metal ring that is then clamped to secure the bond between your natural hair and the extensions hair. Micro ring hair extensions are ideal for those with coarse hair, and should be avoided if your have silky hair as the extensions will be more likely to slip off.

Our chocolate brown keratin hair extensions are as scrumptious as they sound. Everyone loves luscious chocolate brown hair, which is why they are making a huge statement around the world. Give them a try if you are a brunette with natural chocolate brown hair color, or just want to try a new look.
We only sell the highest quality, one hundred percent human hair chocolate brown hair extensions. They are pre-tipped with keratin, not glue, in order to attach to your natural hair by easily melting the keratin tips and wrapping them around your natural hair. This way they form the strongest bond possible and last the longest amount of time. So get that sassy look that you have always wanted.
Installing our chocolate brown keratin hair extensions must be done by a professional and should not be attempted alone.
1: In order to install our chocolate brown keratin hair extensions make sure that your hair is a minimum of five inches long so that the attachment points are visible enough to work with. The extensions should be applied approximately one quarter of an inch from your scalp.
2: Make the preparation rows by selecting a thin strand of hair using the tail of the installation comb. Then insert the lock of hair in the template circle in order to protect your scalp. Use a pre heated hot extension iron to heat the pre-tipped extensions to your natural hair. At this point your natural hair is fixed to the original lock expansion on the heating point of keratin located at the end or tip of the extension.
3: Roll the keratin between your fingers when it is not transparent in order to make the natural hair and extension uniform.
4: Repeat all of the instructions listed above for each lock. You will be doing this process one by one across the head until completed.
5: Once all locks are completed across the head, lightly brush in order to smoothly blend the hair extensions with your natural hair.
1: Do not wash your hair for forty-eight hours once your chocolate brown keratin hair extensions have been installed.
2: Prior to going to bed, brush dry your hair out completely by using an extension brush. It will prevent unwanted extension tangling and matting while spreading nourishing natural scalp oils throughout your extensions.
3: Wash your hair every two days on average and avoid washing it upside down. Also avoid aggressive scrubbing. Do not get any shampoo and or conditioner on the bonds if possible.
4: Only use good quality shampoos and conditioners. Avoid ones that contain sulfur and alcohol because those ingredients break down the extension bonds much faster.
5: When styling your hair, always use a thermal heat protecting solution. Never apply excessive heat or use a flat iron. It will eliminate the risk of your extensions becoming unglued.
6: Before going to sleep braid into a high ponytail and use a silk pillow cover in order to avoid your extensions from tangling and drying.
7: Wear a swim cap if swimming in the ocean or a pool. Salt water and chlorine will severely damage your extensions.
8: Make sure that your hair extensions and bonds are dry before lying down on them. Otherwise you are taking the risk that they will mat up on you.
9: By following these tips, your chocolate brown keratin hair extensions will stay beautiful for the long haul.

Our natural black keratin hair extensions give you that stunning combination of rich dark black silkiness with a touch of luxurious brown that is sure to enhance your look. It is the perfect complementary color for people with natural dark hair, and also provides those sexy dark highlights if you have lighter coloured hair.
If you have been looking for a high quality product that is pre-tipped with keratin instead of glue then your search is over. Keratin is known as a superior bonding agent, and is actually the synthetic version of an all-natural protein that is contained in human hair. Our natural black keratin hair extensions bond stronger so that your hair looks more natural and the extensions last much longer.
In order to properly install our natural black keratin hair extensions you will need to use a hot extension iron. Although the process is simple it should not be done alone.
1: Wash hair twice in order to remove any oils, conditioners, or other hair products. Residue may jeopardize the bond or even keep the extensions from attaching. Perfectly clean hair is a must.
2: Make sure your hair is completely dry. Avoid combing your hair prior to drying as it may cause tangles. Once your hair is one hundred percent dry, do a comb through.
3: If you have curly hair, smooth and flat iron it. This step is extremely important in order to tame your hair and allow for the extension application process.
4: Start preparing the rows by picking out a thin strand of hair with the installation comb’s tail. Next, put a lock of hair into the template circle. This will protect your scalp from getting burned. Touch the hot extension iron and heat the keratin tips on the extensions. Attach to your natural hair.
5: Gently roll the keratin in your fingers so that your natural hair and the extensions have a uniform look.
6: Repeat the process until all locks are completed.
7: Once complete brush your hair lightly so that your natural hair and new hair extensions are blended in smoothly.
1: Wait 1-2 days to wash your new extensions in order to allow them to settle.
2: Only wash your hair with smoothing and moisturizing shampoo and condition well. Do not use products that contain either keratin or protein. Too much protein is not good for your new extensions.
3: Do not brush or comb your new hair extensions when wet. Hair, including your all-natural human hair extensions is most vulnerable when wet. Brushing and combing adds tension to your natural hair. The added weight of the extensions may case your natural hair to break. Make sure it is one hundred percent dry before brushing or combing.
4: Use a hair straightener or curling iron to achieve optimal flow and shine.
5: For longer hair extensions, braid through the lower part of the hair, or pull it loosely back before going to bed. Do not go to bed with wet hair. It will cause the bond to weaken and tangling as well.
6: Check for tangling each and every day. Run your fingers gently through the bonds around your head. If you do come across tangles gently pull them apart or even shake your fingers across them.
Style your hair however you desire. Your new natural black keratin hair extensions are just that, an extension of your own natural hair.
