Racoon FAQ

  • What type of hair does Racoon use?
    Racoon Hair Extensions uses Premium quality hair that has been ethically sourced, with the widest range of colours, length and textures, to suit your own hair for a perfect blend.
  • How long does it take to apply Racoon Hair Extensions?
    Depending on what method is used, application can vary from 15 minutes to approximately 2.5 hours.
  • What methods does Racoon have?
    We have a range of methods to suit your requirements, the bonding system allows you to bond the extensions to your natural hair which will last approximately 3-4 months. We also have the Premium Link method which is a pre-bonded system lasting approximately 2-4 months. If you were after a more temporary method the Micro Wefts are a simple taping technique, which can be applied in an hour and worn for approximately 3 to 6 weeks. We also have a range of clip ins for you to click and go whenever you want.
  • Will there be any damage to my own hair?
    At Racoon Hair Extensions we pride ourselves on the ease of application and removal. We use a gentle bonding material and removal solution with no damage to your natural hair. Visiting your Racoon Salon on a regular basis will ensure your extensions will remain in the best possible condition.
  • What is the bonding material made out of?
    Racoon’s bonding material is made of a polymer. This is a blend of natural and synthetic oils with orange peel and pine kernel extracts, specifically designed for the application of hair extensions.
  • Can I re-use the hair?
    All Racoon extension systems are 100% re-usable. If maintained correctly extension hair can be removed and reapplied on the same day! This makes them very cost effective.
  • Can I colour my hair?
    Yes, it is possible to colour Racoon extensions, but you need to be aware that our extension hair has already been slightly processed and your hair already colour matched, so we do not recommend any colour changes to your hair extensions as certain colour products can damage extension hair. Re touching re growth is not a problem, the bond will actually absorb some of the colour. For a colour change we highly recommend you to consult your Racoon specialist for advice.
  • What shampoo do I use on my extensions?
    Racoon’s Xtend product range has been formulated to keep your extension and natural hair looking fantastic. By balancing gentle cleansing and moisturising agents with natural plant extracts we have produced tailored treatments for every part of the extension process. From a gentle cleansing shampoo to an intensive deep mask treatment. Racoon takes care of it all!
