Please review the Hair Care + Maintenance guide. for detailed instructions and styling tips.

Can I color my hair extensions?

Yes! Melanj Hair is 100% remy human hair. It can be cut, colored or lightened. We recommend seeking professional help to cut, apply or lift color from your hair extensions. Just like your natural hair, any hair extensions that have undergone chemical processing will require more maintenance to keep them looking like new. Use of bleach for drastic lightening effect can alter the original texture of the hair. 

Can I straighten my curly hair extensions?

Yes; however, it is not recommended. Although our hair is very versatile and can be styled in countless ways, excessive manipulation or use of heat may loosen the curls or cause damage to the hair texture.

Can I straighten my Coarse Kinky Straight hair extensions?

Yes! You can straighten your Coarse Kinky Straight hair; however, some texture will remain when using moderate temperatures (325°-400°). For a silky finish or bone straight styles, you will need to use maximum heat (450°) or a better option may be our Loose Kinky Straight or Silk Press Straight hair, which straighten at lower temperatures.

What products should I use?

We recommend using a gentle co-wash or sulfate free shampoo to clean your hair extensions and follow up with a rinse out conditioner. Deep conditioning with heat is highly recommended for any color-treated hair. Click here to see a list of our favorite products.

How do I install my clip-ins?

Clip-in hair extensions can be installed in many ways. If you’re leaving your natural hair out, simply part your hair in thin sections, snap the clips open and click them closed onto the roots of your hair. If you’re braiding your hair down, follow the same steps but snap the clips onto the braid. Once installed, the clip-ins should feel comfortable not tight. If you experience any pulling or tugging, adjust the clip by snapping open and moving to a more comfortable position before clicking closed.

Can I sleep in my clip-ins?

We do not recommend sleeping in clip-ins as it can cause friction or breakage to your natural hair. Hair extensions can also become matted or tangled if slept in.

How should I store my clip ins?

Once you have removed your clip-ins, make sure all clips are closed, group wefts together with hair flowing in the same direction and place inside your Melanj storage bag. The satin lining will protect hair from breakage and ensures the hair remains tangle free.
