What Kind of Feathers?
We use 100% real natural bird feathers from a variety of birds - roosters, peacocks, chickens, geese and emus. Our feathers have been washed, sanitized and dyed with fade-resistant dye. To the best of our knowledge, our feathers are either from multi-use birds (birds not killed for feathers) and are cruelty-free.
Will the feather extension damage hair?
NO, the feather extension and process will not damage hair. Our micro-bead link is lead-free and nickel-free. It is also silicone-lined and will not tear or damage hair. The feathers are 100% real natural bird feathers that ‘blend’ with your own hair because you can treat them as you do your own hair – shampoo, condition, curl, blow-dry and even use with curling iron or flat iron.
How to take care of feather extensions?
For Micro-Link Beaded Semi-Permanent Extensions:
We only use 100% natural bird feathers and they can be treated as your own hair – shampoo, condition, curl, blow-dry and use with curling iron or even flat iron.
Feathers can be gently brushed with hair, but please do not use comb.
For Removable Clip-In Extensions:
If the extension gets dirty, either spot clean or gently wash with mild soap or shampoo and air-dry.
Cut, Color, Highlights, Perm and/or Swimming?
We recommend that the feather extension be removed for haircuts, coloring, highlighting or perming procedures.
Chlorine may lighten and dry out the natural oils in the feather(s) just as it would natural hair. If you swim with a swim cap, go for it and if you swim with no swim-cap, condition after swim.
How long will the feather extension stay in hair?
They are semi-permanent. Once the feathers are attached into the hair by micro-bead link, the extension can last from weeks to months depending on care. Our micro-bead links are silicone lined to grip hair better. If for any reason the feather(s) falls out, simply use another micro-bead link to re-attach. The actual feather is a very durable natural resource and can last indefinitely.
Is the feather extension removable?
Yes, simply use the crimp plier to open the micro-bead link and remove from hair anytime you want to. If you want to re-attach the feather, use a new micro-bead link to re-attach. The micro-link bead is not re-useable, but the feather is re-useable.
