Hair & Lashes FAQS
Q: What is Virgin Hair and Remy Hair?
A. Virgin hair is human hair that is unprocessed and has never been altered by color, perm or other chemicals. It is 100% natural and has all of its cuticles intact.
Remy is a term used to explain the hair cuticles. The cuticle layer of the hair remains intact and runs in the same direction to prevent any kind of tangling.
Q: How many bundles of hair do I need?
A. The amount of bundles needed, depends on the type of look you are going for. Typically the amounts of bundles needed are:
*12-16inches ~ 2 bundle
*18-22inches ~ 3 bundles
*24inches and beyond ~ 4+ bundles
Q: Can I get my bundles in a different color
A. Full of Joy Hair is 100% virgin unprocessed hair and does not have any chemical treatment which includes coloring. The bundles only come in its natural color (off black #1B or dark brown #2).
Q: Can the hair be dyed/bleached?
A. Yes. All virgin hair can be dyed/bleached. Do keep in mind that once the virgin hair is dyed or bleached, it is no longer unprocessed. Any chemical used to alter the natural state of the hair is now considered processed. Advance care will be needed due to the hair no longer being attached to the scalp and therefore losing its natural moisture source. We highly recommend having your hair stylist dye your hair, so you will get the results you want and not damage the hair.
Q: Can the hair be flat ironed or curled
A. Yes. Our hair can be flat ironed and/or curled. We suggest you use a heat protectant when using hot hair tools. Another alternative to get a curled look is to use flexi rods or rollers. This will prevent any possible heat damage.
Q: How long does the hair last?
A. This is 100% Virgin hair and can last for over a year or more depending on how you take care of the hair. Proper hair care is the key! For longevity here are a few tips:
Air dry your hair/wig after it has been washed and conditioned.
Do not use excessive heat. Just like your actual hair, too much heat can cause damage and breakage.
Wash and condition your hair as buildup will cause the hair to tangle and shed.
Store your hair in a hair net, hair bag, hair box or any packaging to keep the hair in good shape.

Q: How much does each bundle weigh?
A. Each bundle weighs approximately 3.2 3.5oz. The length of the hair can alter the weight. The longer the hair, the more bundles you will need.
Q: How long do the lashes last?
A. With proper care, lashes can be used up to 25 wears.
Q: What’s the best way to preserve my lashes?
A. Once you have used your lashes, remove any excess glue and makeup from the lashes. Use your spoolie, provided in you lash kit, and brush through your lashes to assist with removing makeup particles and glue. Put your lashes back in your lash box to and they are ready for the next uses. *Note: a tweezer is a great tool to use to remove the lash glue (adhesive).
Q: How do I clean my lashes?
A. Use a cotton swab and dip it in either rubbing alcohol or oil-free makeup remover. Use the swab and rub it on the lashes paying most attention to the lash band that usually hold all the build up. Once complete, use a another cotton swab, dip it in warm water and go over the lashes to clean up any remnants.
Q: Should I use Mascara on my mink lashes?
A. Mink lashes, made from natural fiber, generally don’t need any additional mascara. If you’d like to wear mascara with them, use it only on your real eyelashes before applying your mink lashes. When you’re finished wearing them, gently remove glue with tweezers. Water and cleaning products can cause them to lose their shape.
