12) What kind of hair do you use to make the loc extensions with?
-The locs are made from 100% afro kinky human bulk hair.


13) Can I change the color of the loc extensions?

 -Locs made in color virgin #1b can be bleached and dyed with no problem. Locs made in color #1, #2, #4, has been processed / dyed, and the color will be difficult to lift, or might not lift at all when bleached. But if your trying color them to a very vibrant color , I would recommend using #613 bulk hair and applying dye that way. Its elimates having to bleach the hair and it'll come out super bright .

 

14) Can the loc extension damage if I bleach them?

 -Even though the hair can be bleached / dyed, I wouldn't advise bleaching the extensions within the 3-6 months of receiving. Please be mindful that even though the extensions are made with human hair and crochet to resemble mature dreadlocs, the extensions are not mature internally for the first couple of months. It takes time for the extensions to mature internally,  just like natural starter locs. If the locs are bleached before they are internally matured, you might experience swelling of the extensions, frizzing, and the extensions might  require re tightening with a crochet needle.

If locs are damaged due to over processing, The chemicals in the bleach will break down the locs, eventually cause the locs to thin out, shed, and eventually break off. The same thing will happen to natural locs if processed to many times in short period, or not processed properly.

15) I have a certain color I'd like my locs to be, can you make the locs with the color I have in mind?
-Yes, I also custom make the loc extensions into any color or create a ombre tip in any color a customer desire. I prefer to make loc extensions with a color the customer desire, to avoid the customer from processing the locs themselves, or maybe damaging their extensions. Even though the locs are made with 100% Brazilian human hair, processing the hair to many times will shorten the longevity of the extensions.

16) How soon will I receive my locs after I've place my order?
-All custom orders will take 2weeks to fulfill , then 1 to 5 days shipping time. For all locs that are in stock they’re available for same day pick-up, same day shipping. Packages are expected to be delivered between 1 to 5 days.

 

17) Why does it take so long for me to receive my loc extensions?
-I am sorry that your order is taken longer than expected. Please Give me a call here 252 – 362- 1298 if you haven’t received your package. Please keep in mind that this is a one-man army, meaning I am only one person completing many orders. Please have some patience with me but do know I always do my best!
 

18) Can I wash and condition the loc extensions?
-Yes, you can wash and condition the loc extensions. The extensions are made with 100%  human hair, therefore the extensions will react to hair product just as your natural hair would. Please be mindful for the first couple of months the loc extensions will internally go through the budding stage just like natural grown starter locs, so for the first couple of months please do not aggressively wash the extensions! Do not pull, tug, yank on extensions while wet, this will  weaken the extensions.

19) Over time will the loc extensions look and feel real like they did when I first received them?
-Yes, with proper care, our extensions look even better as they age. The more you wash, condition, and moisturize the extensions, the more the locs will relax, feel, and flow like natural locs.


20) Would I be able to find handmade loc extensions in local beauty supply stores?
-You can find loc extensions, Afro Kinky human bulk hair & loc accessories in store . here 1106 broad street Newark Nj 07112.

 

21) Does the loc extensions go through budding stage just like natural grown starter locs?

 -Yes, Please be mindful that even though the extensions are crochet to resemble mature dreadlocs, the extensions are not mature internally. It takes time for the extensions to mature internally just like natural starter locs. For the first couple of months please do not aggressively wash the extensions! Do not pull, tug, yank on extensions while wet, this may weaken the extensions over time.

 

22) How long does it take to prepare and ship my order?

 -Order quantity upon checkout, processing period can be 1 to 7days after order date. Most orders ships out between 1 to 3 days but for orders that need to be customized then orders may take a little longer.

 Shipping time after processing will vary based on your shipping method chosen upon order checkout.

 

23) Upon checkout can I choose overnight shipping to receive my locs next day?

 -Expedite shipping does not expedite the processing period for the locs to be made.

 

24) How can I soften up my loc extensions?

 -It would actually help if you pre washed the extensions with shampoo and conditioner prior to installation .The loc extensions will eventually relax and soften up as you continue to moisturize them using megalodons leave in hydrating mist + megalodons  nourishing loc oil.

The extensions are crocheted tightly to ensure longevity, and to withstand being color processed if customer desires to bleach/dye at a later time.

 

25) Can I exchange my order if I ordered the wrong width loc extensions?

 -Orders can not be returned in exchange for different widths/length, or for coloring

I don’t offer refunds or exchanges for some of the following reasons

*would require me to order more hair to remake your new order.
* Additional time required to hand make your new order.
* Products used to bleach & color your new set of locs.
*Shipping fee to reship

 

26) Can I bleach loc extensions that are already made in light colors

 -Although all of our loc extensions can be bleached & colored,  we do not recommend bleaching extensions that are made with lighter colors. The light color hair has already been processed to get to the color it is, and you do not want to risk compromising the extensions by bleaching.
