Russian Remy Hair Extensions

Russian remy hair extensions have long monopolised the world of hair extensions. In fact, remy hair is the most popular for clip in human hair extensions, having grown incrementally in favour over the last decade. Unfortunately, the definition of what remy hair actually is has become an ambiguous topic. But fear not – here at Belong Hair, we’re here to untangle the facts from the myths.

Russian Remy Hair Extensions


What is remy hair?
Remy hair is human hair that is collected and bundled together so that the cuticles are intact and lay in the same direction – that is, from root to tip – from the moment the hair is cut from the donor, until it reaches the recipient of the human hair extensions. The hair cuticles run from the base of the scalp to the tip of hair strand, vertically.
There are two types of remy hair. Double drawn remy hair is hand collected, and nearly 100% of the strands are of the same length. Single drawn remy hair is hair used for human hair extensions that is collected from one donor, with short and long hairs collected into the bundle. Double drawn remy hair is considered to be grade 7A, where single drawn remy hair is considered to be 6A grade human hair extension hair.

The main attraction for remy hair is that is always natural human hair, and is not mixed with any synthetic hair or fibres.
There are many vendors of human hair extensions online who claim that their extensions are made from remy hair, when in fact they are not. The main clue as to whether the hair is genuinely remy hair is that it is extremely smooth and soft for the lifespan of the weave. Remy hair has often been compared to the texture of silk. Russian Remy Hair Extensions should not tangle as easily, as the cuticles are running in the same direction, eliminating knotting and sticking. Genuine remy human hair extensions can be coloured and styled, and, with the proper care, can last up to 2 years or longer.

What is our Russian Remy Hair Extensions?
Our human hair extensions are made with Russian remy hair. This high quality, soft and easily malleable hair is one of the best types of hair in the industry. Russian hair is known for its strength, quality and dark colour. The hair comes from the Northern territories of Russia and remains pure, meaning that it has never been coloured or treated in any way. Russian remy hair is far superior to supplies of hair coming from India, China and Europe. Experts claim it is the genetic superiority of the hair that makes Russian remy human hair extensions so valuable. Therefore, the rarity of this hair makes it well sought after. As this is hair is such superior quality, it makes for the most exclusive human hair extensions. At Belong Hair, we use only the best grades of Russian remy hair for our human hair extensions, ranging from 5A to 7A Russian remy hair. Please see our gorgeous range of colourful human hair extensions for more precise details.

How To Choose Which Hair Extension Is Right For Your

Ever wanted to find out which hair extension are right for you? Choose real hair extensions over synthetic as they’re more durable with washing and styling.


Pre-bonded hair extensions

These are attached to the hair by keratin bonds at the tip of the hair extension which are attached with a little hot tool. These are the most popular and look great, but they do require upkeep and regular salon appointments for hair maintenance. As well as that, you need to avoid putting conditioners, heated appliances near the connection, this will weaken the bond and potentially lead to your extensions coming out much earlier.

For maximum duration with this system, remember to condition only the lengths gently. If you’re blow-drying, dry the lengths first, then tip your head forward to dry your real hair.

Durability: 3 months, if looked after would last 4 – 5 months

You can find quality remy/russain hair extensions here


Tape In Hair Extensions 

Tape extensions have had a bad reputation recently, this is because people use words like DAMAGING and MATTING when they’re mentioned.

If properly applied and cared for and made with good quality hair, are a good choice especially when using High quality Russian hair extensions.

They are connected by wide bonds that look like two bits of Sellotape. Your own hair is placed between them and they are clamped around the strands. The wide, rather than skinny bonds. They’re excellent and if you look after them properly they’ll last for ages.

Durability: 6 month if looked after properly.


Weave Hair Extensions

Weave extensions are ideal for curly or thick hair that’s able to handle them. They’re applied by being sewn into a tightly-braided section of the client’s own, natural hair.

These extensions require upkeep and salon visits are advised every six weeks. This will ensure the section where it’s sewn is in kept at a high standard as these extensions are woven into the client’s own hair, the stylist will also want to assess if they need to be adjusted.

Durability: 6 to 8 weeks to a salon


Loop Ring Extensions

This is a hugely popular hair extensions. They’re pretty much damage-free as there’s no glue, no heat, no tape and no sewing. They can be purchase here ! The connections are durable , not uncomfortable and can apply conditioner without a care!

These are probably the best option if you want to be able to dye your hair extensions, and use lots of products or heat-styling appliances.

The Colours

Super Dark Brown

One of the colours you can expect to see a lot throughout of 2017 is the very dark and rich brown. This colour, almost resembling black, is taking over from the lighter chocolate and caramel brown. However, if you don’t want to go all dark, the natural brown and caramel are still very cool.


In 2017 we are introduced to yet another of these funny sounding cool hair colour trends, namely ‘bronde’. This colour is, as the name suggests, a mix between dark blonde and light brown. It’s a dark, golden blonde becoming lighter towards the ends. The feature of this colour is that in some lights it will look blonde, while in others it will look brown.

The Styles

Super Straight Hair

The super straight hair with middle parting is back! It’s a stylish and beautiful look for a true fashion guru who wants a simple and clean look. This trend will looks good with most hair length. However, you need to make sure it goes with your face shape. You can purchase straight hair extensions here

Longer locks

In contrast, if you have long hair, don’t consider cutting it. The very loooong hair is hot in 2017, so take good care of your precious locks and let them grow! If you have shorter hair, use hair extensions to get your crop longer. You can purchase long quality hair extensions here

Flipped Hair and Side Parting

If you’re not so much into the middle parting, this hair trend is right for you. The flipped hair gives a casual and random yet sexy look. Flip your hair to one side and let it stay there, add a bit of volume or mess and you’re stylish as h…

The High Ponytail

The cool and sporty high ponytail is re-entering the fashion scene. This hairstyle is very simple and not time consuming to make. If you think this is a boring look, you’re wrong! What makes the ponytail  one of my favourite hair trends 2017 is that it can be made in so many different ways depending on what look you want and how much time you have.


5 Tips for Wearing Hair Extensions

This blog will cover 5 Tips for Wearing Hair Extensions, Hope you enjoy and share!

  1. Buy a Hair Weft – A hair weft is a section of hair which can be either synthetic or real that is sewn together on top. Buy it from Belong Hair Store here.
    When you have purchased it take you hair to your local specialist and get them to sew a few clips onto the top of the hair weft. This will make sure you can secure it onto your head. Also, be sure to buy a longer length so you’re not paying for extra hair as this can be a bit pricey
  2. Put your hair extensions in upside down (my personal favourite) – If you’re planning on wearing your hair up and want to add more volume, place the clip-in upside down against your roots making sure it is underneath so no one can see. That way you will ensure that the hair extension is facing in the correct direction. To pull off this look off, take the end of a teasing comb and section your hair into a top and bottom layer then clip the top section up. Tease the spots near the root where the clips will go and place the hair extension in. Finally, continue pulling your hair up into the look you want.
  3. Get a professional to cut your hair extensions – You can buy quality and value for money hair extensions, like our 3A Standard Clip In Hair extension Range From here, and have your stylist cut them for your requirements. They can also walk you through on how to put them in properly, so when you do it, it will look spot on.
  4. Get Help From Sponge Rollers – If you’re using a synthetic hair extension and your hair is naturally curly or wavy firstly dampen the strands with water the night before you plan on wearing them and let them dry naturally . As they are drying, take a large sponge roller roll the hair up into them, and leave the curlers in overnight. Anytime you’re changing the texture of hair, even if it’s synthetic, you have to wet the hair.
  5. Make Your Real Hair Match – If you have natural straight hair and want to wear a synthetic extension, add a little shine serum, like Pauls hair and beauty Here at £5.99 to your hair before applying the faux strands. This will help your real hair match the sheen of the extensions. If you have human hair extensions, even better! you can do whatever you do to your own hair and the faux strands, such as flat iron them and add shine spray.

What Are Stick Tip Hair Extensions?

‘Stick Tip’ refers the long, thin, stick like shaped bond at the top of each strand of hair. The method can also be called i-tip extensions. The strand is attached to the client’s hair using a micro ring or micro tube.  The rings are then flattened with pliers to keep tightly in place.

How Do I Wash Stick Tip Hair Extensions?

You should wash your hair under running water, in the direction that your hair grows is the most effective way to remove hair product and avoid any tangling.

Belong Hair recommend not washing your hair for at least 48 hours after the initial fitting. The bonds are at their tightest at this point, so avoid putting the extra weight of water on your hair.

How Do I Brush My Hair Extension?

When brushing hair extensions always use a soft bristle brush which can be found here . These brushes are safer for both the extensions and your hair.  We recommend brushing your hair every morning and evening before bed as a minimum. Start by brushing the ends of your hair, then moving up once smooth.

What Are u-Tip/Nail Tip/Pre Bonded Hair Extensions?

When considering what type of u-Tip/Nail Tip/Pre Bonded hair extensions you are going to purchase you want to make sure you select the right one for you. One problem that many face is that all of the industry terminology can be confusing and make looking for the perfect hair extension for you a difficult process.

Here we shall take a look at the terminology of utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extensions to help you understand more clearly what they mean.  Making choosing your hair extensions a much easier experience.


What does utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extension even mean?

A utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extension is a type of hair extension that is applied to the hair by heating up the keratin (glue) tip which is found at the end of the extension this is then attached to your natural hair.  This method of bonding hair has been around for years and is a very popular method.


Are utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extensions different?

The terms utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extension are often used to describe the same thing, which can be quite confusing.  The keratin glue is shaped in a “u” or “nail” type structure to make it easier to melt against the hair to form something called a bond.  Other names of this style of tip is “flat tip” or “v tip”, which again is the exact same type of fitting.  The only different terminology listed above is “pre bonded”.


What does pre bonded Hair Extensions mean?

The term pre bonded can be interpreted differently as it can be associated with other types of hair extensions. The term pre bonded could be used to not only describe utip/nail tip/pre bonded hair extensions but also stick and nano tip as these are also pre bonded and not sold as individual hair. So before asking a professional be sure to mention the type of hair extensions you are look for.

How are utip/nail tip hair extensions fitted?

Utip/nail tip hair extensions are fitted using a heat connector to melt the keratin tip against small sections of natural hair. The Keratin heats and cools very quickly and attaches around the hair, allowing for quick and easy application.
To fit a set of these hair extensions you will require:

Grey Hair Extensions – The Cool New Hue

Become a silver vixen with Belong Hair’s new range of grey hair extensions.

The grey hair trend has just taken the hairdressing world by storm, and with Belong Hair taking more orders for grey hair extensions than any other product this year, we decided to look into what makes grey hair the new blonde.

Sites like Instagram, Tumblr and other blogging sites are continuously hunting for and showcasing new trends.  Silvery grey hues have taken over the social media world, with bloggers and celebrities posting pictures of the new hair phenomenon.  Many believe that the fascination with what is normally considered to be ageing hair comes from the latest catwalks.  With a revival of monochrome styles, grey most certainly is the new black in the fashion world, and this, it seems, has transferred to fashion accessories, including grey hair extensions and grey hair dye.

So what do bloggers think about the revival of grey tones?  The overall consensus seems to be that dyeing your locks a silvery hue is an extremely time-consuming process which involves stripping the natural hair colour with bleach.  Whilst this works well for shorter hairstyles in the short term, using copious amounts of bleach on natural hair can be extremely damaging to the hair follicles, resulting in dry, brittle and broken hair.

But Belong Hair believe that the increase in sales in grey hair extensions is the answer to the problem of over-colouring natural hair.  Our grey hair extensions come in the high quality grade 4+, and the real human grey hair extensions are made from premium Russian hair.   Our new, popular shade of grey hair extensions are a very versatile silvery shade which fits with most skin tones.  We do advise that, when choosing your grey hair extensions, you update your makeup.  Going grey is a bold look, but if you’re fair skinned, warmer makeup colours will look glam and stop you from looking washed out.

“Granny” grey hair extensions, as bloggers are dubbing the new colour trend, are not only less jarring than past red and pink trends, but is seen as more socially acceptable for work purposes.  Many women use grey hair extensions to blend the acceleration of naturally greying hair, whereas celebrities such as Rihanna use grey hair extensions as a statement that, when it comes to hair colour, ombre is out and silver is very much in.

The Importance Of Hair Extensions

It seems nowadays that you can’t turn your head without being faced with a whole host of different hair extensions.  But why the sudden rise in popularity for clip in human hair extensions?  And why have these seemingly superficial products become so important in modern society?


Hair, especially its volume and length, has long been a symbol of status.  In the Middle Ages, Kings of Europe were encouraged to wear their hair long, whereas the poor had their hair cut with knives to stop the spread of disease.  Not that we’re implying that shorter, pixie cuts are “poor”, but long, luscious locks certainly still reflect an air of superiority.  Take our newest Royal, Kate Middleton, as an example.  The Duchess of Cambridge had five hours’ worth of hairdressing before introducing Prince George to the world – including exquisite real clip in human hair extensions.


It’s true that we always want what we can’t have.  But with the availability of clip in human hair extensions, it’s now easier than ever to create the hairstyle you’ve always wanted.  If your tresses are looking tired and thing, add clip in human hair extensions for a bouncy, buoyant effect.  If you’re impatient for your bob to grow out, add extensions for longer, luscious locks.  And if you’re eager for your mane to reflect your vibrant personality, add colourful, courageous clip in human hair extensions for fuss-free, funky hair.  Clip in human hair extensions are the perfect way to express your individuality, no matter what your natural look dictates.


Looking your best can seriously impact on your state of mind.  A great set of clip in human hair extensions can transform your look from washed out to wonderful, getting you ready for that all important interview, business meeting, speech or social event.

Hair loss or hair thinning can cause loss of confidence in women.  But clip in human hair extensions can give you your mojo back by filling out your head and bumping up your bouffant.


According to a Harvard study released in 2003, a drastically different haircut can have a huge impact on our physical and psychological health.  Having the hair style we desire can increase serotonin levels, the chemical that is responsible for maintaining mood levels and keeps depression at bay.  In turn, this can help lower anxiety levels and even lower your blood pressure.  Using clip in human hair extensions to achieve your dream hair could mean you not only look fabulous, you’ll feel and actually be a little more fabulous too.

Far from just being an accessory, clip in human hair extensions can be transformational for body, mind and soul.  For a full range of clip in human hair extensions, and many more comprehensive extension options, please browse our product range at Belong Hair.

Hair Extensions for Summer

Summer is upon us, and we’re all looking for that perfect hairdo to make us look like a sun goddess over the summer months.  At Belong Hair, we have the perfect solution for your beach, holiday and festival needs – hair extensions for summer.

Why use hair extensions?

Hair extensions can give you the best of all summer scenarios.  You see, using hair extensions can give you that wavy, glowing, summer-ready look.  This is without backcombing, hair spraying, tinting or bleaching. Want volume, length and a look of vitality?  You can’t go wrong with hair extensions for summer. Using lighter coloured hair extensions, blended with your natural hair, can give you a sun-kissed look without the dangers of scorching your scalp and singeing your roots.  Hair extensions for summer festivals are also a hassle-free way to have glossy looking hair, even if you’re knee-deep in mud.  We recommend that you use brightly coloured wefts for a funky festival look, making you stand out no matter how large the crowd.

Which are the best hair extensions for summer?

At Belong Hair we’re fans of all types of hair extensions.  But we’re aware that certain wefts are preferable to others when the weather is hot.  You don’t want to be trying to pull off sun goddess, and end up sweating from your scalp.  Clip in hair extensions, for example, are a little too hot and bulky for the summer.  You want to spend less time putting in your extensions, and more time enjoying barbecues in the sunshine.

At Belong hair, we believe that tape in extensions are the best hair extensions for summer.  The extensions themselves are extremely lightweight, and they deal better with humidity.  Once they’re in, you don’t have to spend the duration of the holiday re-adjusting them – they’re in!  If you’re going away to warmer climes for the summer, you’ll be looking for a holiday full of ease and relaxation.  We believe that tape in hair extensions will be the lowest maintenance and hassle free option for you.

Hair extensions for summer: special care tips.

Now you know which extensions are best for your fun in the sun.  Here are a few tips on how to maintain your tropical tresses.

Humidity and sun exposure can cause your extensions to dry out. Use a leave-in conditioner, such as the ones available at the Belong Hair online shop, to make sure your hair stays fresh and oxygenated.

We recommend not to use sea salt sprays on your hair extensions. These sprays can create beachy waves on natural hair.  But the salt extracts moisture and oils from the hair follicles, making the hair dry and straw-like.  This reduces the longevity of the weft.

Don’t get them wet, if you can help it. Sure, hot weather is the perfect time for a dip in the pool, or, if you’re braver, a swim in the sea.  But salt and chlorine damage the bonds, and make them extremely fragile.  If you are too tempted by a splash around, then we suggest that you gently pull your hair into a loose, low bun to avoid tangling.

We’re big advocates of keeping sun safe here at Belong Hair.  But we do urge you to be careful not to get sun tan lotion over your hair extensions. Much in the same way as chlorine, sun tan lotion clogs the bonds and the hair attached to them, and will effectively ruin your locks.

Hair accessories are a great way to update your look daily and accentuate your summer outfits.  More importantly, they protect your extensions from sun damage – so go mad with hats and head scarves!
