Hair Extensions Review: Lord & Cliff Art Remi Hair

This post is for all of my beauty chameleons out there that love to change their hairstyles through wearing hair extensions. I am one that is quick to change up my hairstyle, whether it is short and sassy or long and flowing I love to wear my extensions. For me, the best way I love to wear extensions is to have them sewn-in. I like sewn in hair over quick weaves any day because it is easier to wash and style without having to worry about the glue coming off. I also like it because if I am on vacation and want to go swimming orย ย  get my hair wet again I don’t have to mess with any glue of any sort. The only downside of wearing any hair extension is finding the best quality hair that will last longer than 6 weeks. I mean good hair that you can reuse without worry about spending hundreds of dollars on fresh new hair for a new install especially if you know that you are going to be wearing the same style again.

I have been wearing sew in for 2 years and I know I have spend lots of money on hair because the hair becomes tangled, sheds too much, or matte too quickly even with washing and taking good care of the hair. Recently, the brands that I have been happy with in the past have been the sensational goddess hair and the saga gold remi hair. Both brands are great when you are wearing 10 inches length hair or less, however when I have worn lengths of 12 inches or more then hair wears fine until the 6th and 7th week and the hair begins to matte and tangle like crazy.

As a result, of this frustration I decided to tryout a new brand of hair. If you watch my youtube channel NHOP76 you may have noticed my hair is longer and I have been wearing a new brand of hair. The brand of hair I purchased back in April 2010 was the Lord and Cliff Art Remi Hair. this hair was recommended by the owner of my local beauty supply store. Sheย  stated that this hair is much better than the Saga gold remi hair and that it was last longer. The only thing is that this brand of hair in the 1B30 14 inches cost a bit more ($99 per bag) compared to the $79 per bag I usually spend on the other brand. But I was okay with it because I trusted the lady since she has been so good to me in the past. The store I purchased it from is called:

Fashion Accent located in the Austin, TX area on 9717 North Lamar BLVD, Austin, TX 78753. The phone number is (512)339-1878.ย  I love this store and I have never had a bad experience there, so if you live in this area totally go check it out!! If you don’t live in the Austin area or can not find this hair at your local beauty supply store you can also find it online at: www.marcishairextensions.com

Product Info:

They say that the Lord and Cliff Art hair is so beautifully soft and silky! It’s 100% Remy Human Hair for Weaves and Extensions. If you want to find yaky hair weave, then this is the hair that you have been searching for. This is the best texture match to Permed African American Hair! This Ultra Premium Quality Yaky Hair has all the cuticles facing one direction making it tangle free and easy to maintain.

Anyway, I was so excited to try this hair out, so my stylist installed that same weekend I purchased it and I was so happy!! The hair was easy to install and the result was beautiful. The texture of the hair is like relaxed hair and let me tell you it feels smooth. Even after washing the hair the texture gets better! I have been wearing this hair for the past 7 weeks now and I am still amazed as to how well it is lasting.

Pros: The hair is easy to style straight and curly, and the hair is soft and wears well in this hot Texas heat. The texture of the hair is awesome.

Cons: The price $99, but I guess that is the price you will pay for good hair, Minimal shedding and tangling.

Now many of my youtube subscribers have been asking how much hair do I use on my full sew-in and how I take care of my hair everyday because I exercise a lot. So, I will share with you all my routine and regime too. (Keep in mind I am not a professional hair stylist, but I just do what my stylist recommend me to do and this is what works for me. So, always consult with a professional before making any changes to your hair care regime because everyone’s hair type is not all the same)

  1. For a full install how many packages to I use? I purchase 2 packs because I like my hair to be full and thick.
  2. Do I sew in my wear myself? No, I see a professional for that although I would love to learn because it does cost to have the hair installed and tighten. For the install $100 & Up and to tighten $25 and up.
  3. What products do I use to care for my hair and the extension? I use the Creme of Nature Sunflower & Coconut Detangling Conditioning Shampoo: 15.2 OZ , Ojon Restorative Leave-in Treatment 4.2 fl oz (125 ml), CHI Infra Treatment 12oz
    , and Nexxus Heat Protexx Style Spray 8.5 oz. (Case of 6). For moisture I will spray water on my hair and then seal my hair with either Carol’s Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey or Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion
    . Finally to hold my style at times I will use TRESemme Curl activator for my curly styles or I will just you Garnier Fructis Full Control Anti-Humidity hairspray. Lastly I will use my Ampro Pro-Style Protein Gel Super Hold Jar 10.5 oz
    for smooth down the edges of my hair.

All in all I am loving this hair so far and I will be using this hair again in my next install. I am thinking of just going with the dark brown or should I stick with the 1B30? Let me know what you think. Now, to end if you have a wonderful human hair that you love to use for your installs please share!! I know everyone is always looking for a brand of human hair that they can really on and reuse again without worry about buying new hair for each install.

    Hi Natasha!

    I love your hair and makeup videos and love that you have a blog a well! I am an avid follower of both! I have a new makeup look every week! My seven year old says, “Mommy you look like a rainbow with all the pretty colors on!” lol!!! I have a question. Did you dye your hair to match the color of the weave or is the color I see all the weave? The reason I am asking is because the 1b30 is so pretty, I am going to purchase that for my next sew-in but my hair is dark brown almost jet black!! Will that work ok do you think? Do you have any of your hair left out or is it a full sew-in? Also you were asking your readers if you should go back to dark brown or stay with 1b30..I say..STAY WITH THE 1b30! The color looks so pretty on you, you look young and fresh..that is why I am getting the 1b30!! I have always felt that women of color look so pretty with highlights or color, I feel like it makes brings out a natural glow in us! Thanks so much again!!!

      I do have a little bit of my hair left out on the top and the nap of my head. The color at the top is my natural color dark brown. So I did not color the top at all. I used 2 bags for my sew-in too. For some reason the hair just blends in perfectly! I hope that you have fun getting your hair done and you must share your experience. Also, thank you so much for your feedback on staying with the 1b30. I will keep the color until fall then I a going dark, lol.

      • Hi from Puerto Rico!! 
        I would like to order the 1b30 hair extensions your talking about but I'm confused.  When I go to the website you suggested I cannot find them, and also there aredifferent kinds of extensions (remi fusion,   yaky fusion) .   I do have sewn in Saga hair extensions but they tangled and  shed a lot too (which is embarassing to brush in public).  What's the difference?  Am I suppose to order the ones that say weave?  I want the best quality.  Would you help me?
        Thanks!

          Hi Daisy,
          The website may be out of business. However has far as hair extension you definitely want to look for extensions that says weave. So far I have been loving Halley’s Curls at http://halleyscurls.com salon relax malaysian remi hair!! I have been using that hair since the end of summer and I love it. This hair will have minimal shedding or tangling, but definitely worth the price ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello! Thank you for the tips! I just had my Lord & Cliff clip on extensions sewn in. They are probably about 6weeks old since I started wearing them as clip ins and just sewn in a couple days ago via braids. I find that they are sooo tangled though!! I use Chi and another smoothing balm, but still they get tangled after like 5 minutes. I have to use a sulfate free shampoo because I’ve had keratin straightening treatment on my natural hair because it is so frizzy/kinky. So my natural hair looks great now, but my weave is looking a bit janky and considering I work in a professional office environment with all men, I am wanting to stop the teasing from my coworkers and make my hair look fab! Any tips? I see the only tangling product you use is the shampoo. How much of the other products do you use in your hair? How often do you find you have to brush it?

    Thanks!!

      Hi Jennifer,

      Go to my youtube channel and check out my playlist there for my Lord and Cliff Art remi hair update. In that video I explain what I use on my hair. I honest only brush my hair 2 a day. As far as styling products I dont’ use much through each day. How often are you washing your hair? If you live in a humid climate you may want to consider using a product that help reduce frizz like living proof at sephora. My hair has lasted me 10 weeks so far and I will be using it for another install. So just make sure you are not putting too much product on your hair so that it does not get weighed down.

  3. Hello Natasha

    I would like to try hair extentions but I’m worried because I’m a older woman and my natural hair in the front and sides are graying. I would like to know if you have any tips on how to start my process off?

    Thanks

    LJ

    • Natasha says:

      Hi LJ, I would suggest taking to you stylist for tips. My first thought is to dye you hair color. Otherwise, I would find extensions with gray if you want to stick with you natural hair color and tone. Just a thought. I hope that helps.

    hey natasha,
     
    i just found your site and i love it already! you are awesome chica! okay so i have quote unquote and don't kill me for this "good black hair". not really a fan of that quote but basically when i perm my hair it looks like indian (from india) hair. lots of movement and all that. i just wanted to know if you would suggest getting silky straight extensions or yaky extensions? also i'm not getting weave, i'm trying out a new technique called microlinks! you should try it and do a review on it ! thanks love, and hope to hear from you soon! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Natasha says:

      I like the yaky texture the best! I mimics our hair texture better. Sometime the silky straight looks to wiggy.

  8. Ashley Nicole says:

    Hello, I was wondering have you ever colored your hair. I have the Art Remy Gold hair and I want to color one of the packs that’s like blonde with brown highlights black. Is that possible without messing up the hair.
