How Long Will My Hair Last ?
We offer 3 tiers of Virgin Hair quality. The life span of your texture depends on the tier you select. Attributes like being tangle free and experiencing very minimal shedding are standard qualities shared among all three tiers. Raw Virgin Hair will maintain its natural texture for the life of your product use. Textured Virgin Hair also known on our site as Premium Virgin Hair, will lose its definition over time revealing its original, and pure texture. Expect your Virgin XoticStrands to last 1-3 yrs or more, depending on the way your care for your products.
What Is The Return and Refund Policy ?
"Bad Batches" will surface, as we are importing Raw Virgin Human Hair. It must be made clear that no two bundles will ever be the exact same in texture, luster, or elasticity, as each bundle of hair is manufactured into its own attachment method , and each bundle comes from one individual donor. In instances where you have received a bad batch of XoticStrands, its best to consider that everyone's definition of a "good batch" will vary depending on what's desired from their point of view. Raw hair is donor specific. Usually in the event that a "good batch" has tangled badly, more than likely that bundle of hair has been "Dropped" during manufacturing, and the cuticles are no longer aligned in the same direction. In this instance, the first requirement of the consumer is to remove the bundle from installation and return the defective product within 10 days for examination. The date of your return shipment, is used to qualify that you've met our demand, and qualify for an exchange. If the bundle does not meet the quality standard that XoticStrands provides & guarantees, those bundles will be replaced. NO QUESTIONS ASKED!! All raw virgin hair items are shipped and approved for quality by XS Staff, prior to shipping them out to our customers. Textured Virgin Hair and Premium hair however, are not.
Disclaimer: For customers who are out of state, shipping costs to return products to XoticStrands must be paid by the consumer, if the bundles are not truly defective they will be returned to the customer at their own expense. If the bundles are found to be defective shipping costs for the replacement order must be paid by XoticStrands. The tracking date issued by the shipping company will determine if the product meets the 10 day requirement for returns.
Keep in mind, a bad batch of hair, will show signs of imperfection during installation, and no amount of styling will help. Its best for us to replace your order as soon as possible. This is a VERY SELDOM OCCURRENCE at XoticStrands, but rest assured measures are in place in case of this rare instance.

How Secure Is Your Site When I Order With My Credit Card ?
Always look for the "S" in the web address prefix of "https://www." when making purchases on ANY site. This means that your payment is being processed on a secure web page and is being protected from identity theft. Because we use PayPal as our primary payment source, their interface redirects you to a new page where your credit card information is entered manually, by you, the consumer; so you can rest assured that your identity, and financial information is kept confidential. Please note that you do not have to have a paypal account to purchase your products. You can pay as a guest and still enter your credit and debit information by clicking the grey button.
Which Products Are Recommended for Hair Care Maintenance?
As a professional stylist it is recommended that sulfate free shampoos, and conditioners that compliment the hair texture that you've decided to order, are used to compliment your finished style. Use " Smoothing products" for straight hair, "Curl Defining" Conditioners for Curly Hair, and "Liquid Leave In" Conditioner, for Wavy Hair. The Brand you select is your choice. However, we encourage you to try our XoticStrands Extension Care Line arriving soon to the online store. Our line has proven to be perfect for both your natural hair as it grows and your extensions as they lose essential vitamins and nutrients by the manufacturing process (ei: wefting process ). A commercial brand called Purology is a personal favorite, in the event that you haven't had the opportunity to purchase XS Extension Care. I also recommend Joico sulfate free products.
HAIR TIP: If you've worn a style where you've achieved product build up on your XoticStrands, we suggest mixing more sulfate free shampoo than conditioner in a cocktail formula creating and low emulsified lather, rinsing with luke-warm water, and depending on your XS texture; apply a leave in conditioner prior to styling or air drying.
