FAQs

Delilah Brand Hair Extensions are installed using the cold fusion and tape fusion method. There are no heat and chemicals involved, so there is nothing to compromise the integrity of your hair. Below are frequently asked questions (FAQs), but if you’d like to know anything else, please contact us to ensure all of your questions are answered.

Which method is better for your hair?

All of Delilah’s methods are virtually damage free. If installed properly and maintained regularly your hair will show no sign of ever having had hair extensions. It is recommended that you never go longer than 8 weeks without seeing your stylist for maintenance no matter what method you have in your head.

How do I know which method is right for me?

Your lifestyle determines which method you should get. Most clients can have either. A consultation should always take place before any extension service. Getting extensions the first time you meet your stylist is not recommended.

Will it hurt?

Normally the next day you will have a minor headache, but nothing that a shot of tequila can’t fix. If you have a discomfort past a week, consult your stylist immediately.

Which method is cheaper? Which method requires the least time in the chair? Which method requires the least trips to the salon?

Over the course of a year, both methods should balance out to all be equal. Only spread out differently, payments and time.

Why don’t you make sew-ins or hot fusion?

Over the course of this company’s life, we have found that sew ins and hot fusion, no matter who installs them or how well they are taken care of, are damaging. Delilah’s first rule of business is keeping your natural hair intact. Sew-ins and hot fusion, though they may still be common, are out dated methods.

Which styles better? Which hides better?

The pro and cons of each method are 50/50. Micro bead (itip) are individual strands installed over several hours. Since the pieces are small they can move up, down, left, right and diagonally, better for high ponies and buns. Tape the bonds are made up of the exact color of the hair, so they are virtually undetectable but must be worn in a low pony, but lay much flatter.

How do I maintain it? Is it difficult?

In the maintenance tab, there are step-by-step instructions on how to care for it. All of the tips are great for extensions OR anyone wanting to take good care of their long hair.

How much does maintenance cost?

Every stylist is different, but a maintenance cost and schedule should be established at installation or consultation.

Will I lose pieces?

Losing pieces are inevitable; depending on how much hair you shed on a regular basis.

Why the lengths 22 and 26 inches?

22 inches will stretch to just below the underwire of your bra when straight. The 26 inch will reach below when the hair is curled. Layering the hair to blend the extension with your natural hair will shorten it some, so its better to keep the hair long and trim it as it thins out.

What colors are available? Will it match?

The original color swatch has over 48 colors, from jet black to platinum. Over the many years of hair styling I have narrowed down to the most common 13 colors. Also being a true colorist I have made 4 custom blends that can be combined with any of the 13 colors to make endless color combinations. A strong grasp of color theory will ensure flawless matching.

Will it damage my hair?

With proper care and maintenance there will be no damage. That does not make them fool proof. Regular trips to the salon and education for you and your stylist are a must.

I live far away from my stylist which method is better for out of town clients?

If you cannot make it the salon every other month you should probably not consider permanent extensions. Clip-ins would work great.

What makes Delilah different from any other brand?

A licensed hairstylist, working behind the chair everyday, developed Delilah. No other line is developed, designed, marketed and refined by a stylist who also cuts, colors, and styles hair. Delilah Hair isn’t just trying to sell you a product, but a culture of long hair.

Where does the hair come from?

Most of the hair comes from Russia, China and Malaysia. This blend makes it perfect for Caucasian hair, finer with just a little wave.

What does Remy mean?

Remy does not have anything to do with quality. All it means is that roots are all kept going in the same direction, so the hair remains tangle and static free.
