Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is LUMA black-owned?

Yes, we are a sister / black-owned company! Find out more about us here.

 

Does LUMA sell wigs?

Thanks for your interest! We offer extensions, frontals, and closures. We're currently in the testing stages, but hope to introduce wigs this year.

 

Can I straighten, dye or bleach the bundles?

LUMA hair extensions are 100% human virgin hair, so you have the option of straightening, dyeing or bleaching the hair. We suggest getting the hair professionally colored or dyed by an experienced colorist. Dyeing may shorten the lifespan of the hair and cause damage if not done correctly.

 

How much hair do I need?

Depending on the look you want to achieve, we recommend ordering at least 3 bundles for all lengths to avoid running out of hair. For an install with a frontal, 2 ½ bundles is recommended for a natural look. For an install with a closure or leave-out, use 3 bundles for a fuller look or 4 for our Loose Wave texture. For a half wig or U-part wig, 2 ½ bundles are needed. Each bundle weighs 3.5 ounces.

 

What's Virgin Hair?

Virgin hair is chemical-free and collected from multiple donors. The hair is then steam-processed to achieve different textures.

 

How do I care for Virgin Hair?

See our Hair Care Guide for tips and detailed steps.

 

How long does the hair last?

With proper care, Virgin hair can last up to 2 years. We recommend referring to our Hair Care Guide for tips.

 

Does the hair shed?

Our wefts are reinforced to prevent extreme shedding, but you may experience minimal shedding which is normal. To minimize this, you can opt to seal your wefts with weft sealer and avoid cutting (instead, fold wefts as they're sewn) when installing your bundles.

Also note, when you first receive your order, you may get loose strands when running your hands through the bundles. These are loose hairs from the wefting process which is normal.


I am not sure which hair texture I need, can I place a sample order?

We do not sell samples, but you have the option to order one bundle to see which texture is suitable for you. Also, review the product images of the various hair textures we offer.

 

The hair texture I wanted is sold out, what do I do?

Some pieces are very limited, and are taken down once they are sold out (which can sometimes be in a matter of hours)! Be sure to sign up for our mailing list to receive restocking updates, email us, or DM us on Instagram
