Returns Policy – Faulty Goods
If hair extensions appear faulty due to quality issues, the fault must be reported to us via email to the Customer Service Department:email@example.com within a maximum of 30 days of the receipt date;this is due to human hair being a consumable item during wear.
We only recommend the use of Elite Hair Aftercare and cannot guarantee the quality of any ELITE HAIR AUSTRALIA extensions with other formulas. Aftercare products must be purchased at the time of purchasing the extensions. Any hair returned to be tested for alleged quality issues must be accompanied by original proof of purchase for both the extensions and aftercare.
All returns must have a fully completed Hair Report Form. Any goods received without the appropriate paperwork will not be processed until the correct paperwork is received. Failure to provide the completed paperwork within 91 days will result in the goods being destroyed.
We will not test any hair extensions that have been coloured, tinted or chemically damaged; all hair extensions must be returned in the original product colour. We must receive the hair within 7 days of the complaint being made, this will then be examined and inspected. Goods are not considered faulty if their condition deteriorates due to poor hair management or poor application of extensions. If no fault is present, or the hair has been damaged or coloured in any way, the goods will be returned to the customer at your cost and we will not refund or replace the goods. Please note that testing of faulty hair extensions can take up to 30 days.
We do not guarantee the use of our hair extensions whilst on holiday/in warmer climates for various reasons, including discolouration of the hair when coming into contact with swimming pool chlorine and the hair drying out through excess heat. We strongly advise all customers using hair extensions avoid both chlorine and sea water as this can damage hair and hair colour.
Any colouring of extensions is done entirely at the customers own risk and we will not test, refund or exchange any extensions that have been coloured, dyed or tinted.
ELITE HAIR EXTENSIONS SALONS will not be held responsible for any extensions that have been exposed to heat damage by the customer.
Synthetic products can only be heated in moderation up to 180°, synthetic hair extensions cannot be coloured or washed.
ELITE HAIR EXTENSIONS SALONS will not be held responsible for any additional expenses due to faulty goods e.g. removal or re-application costs. We recommend that a qualified professional applies any professional hair extensions and that customers are to have a consultation before any permanent extensions are applied.
The goods are the responsibility of the customer until they reach ELITE HAIR AUSTRALIA warehouse. Please ensure all items are packaged properly to avoid transit damages.
Any returned goods that we receive which are outside of this Returns Policy will be defined as “In Dispute”. Such In Dispute items will not be refunded or exchanged. A reason for this decision will be provided.

Please note: due to previous false promises in respect to product exchanges, we are unable to replace a faulty item until the original is returned to ELITE HAIR AUSTRALIA.
Product Care (Important Information for Returns & Exchanges)
We do not recommend colouring or silver shampoo any human hair product as they have all been through a harsh chemical process. If you do decide to go ahead and colour the hair, all guarantees are voided and we will not accept hair back to be tested if you think that the hair is faulty as you have made a change to the original condition of the product. We will refuse to test hair that has been coloured.
