Caring for Your Hair Extensions

hair extensions care

So you’ve decided to get hair extensions. We are excited you’ve chosen to try something new, and we would love to be your beauty coach. Extensions are fun, sexy and oh so pretty. But it’s very important to take care of them properly, and we are here to tell you how. Read on for all the do’s and don’ts of hair extensions, no matter which type you’ve chosen.

  1. The first thing to keep in mind is keeping your hair extensions clean. When shampoo and products build up, they can make the hair look and feel dull as well as dirty and sticky. They can also make it harder to brush through, which leads to pulling and eventually sliding out. The more you have to pull on them to detangle, the more likely they are to come out too soon.
  2. Before shampooing, brush the hair gently to remove tangles and surface debris.
  3. After shampooing, apply a very light conditioner from mid-shaft to ends, then comb through with a wide tooth comb. Rinse completely, especially near the scalp, to prevent build-up. Lift the layers of the hair where the extensions have been placed and let the water soak in thoroughly.
  4. Towel dry gently but thoroughly before applying a leave-in conditioner and/or heat protectant.
  5. Keep the blow dryer on the move during styling so you don’t overheat any one area, and use hot tools sparingly. The less damage you do to the extensions, the better they will look and last.
  6. Avoid using oil products near the scalp area where the extensions are applied. This can cause slipping of the extensions and require more maintenance than necessary.
  7. ANY products which contain sulfate and silicone need to be avoided.

Am I too old for long hair?

As I was preparing for this blog I googled it . I was amazed how many articles were written around this question. I still decided to write this and voice my personal opinion on that. I have had over 17 years in the industry and I can say I have not had one moment that I doubted if this is my calling in life. I believe that beautiful transformations happen everyday and the extension of a person’s beauty should be an extension of themselves. It should be real. It should last and stay with them. And it should suit them perfectly , both internally and emotionally.

A lot of us start feeling better about ourselves as we get much older. That is usually when we get to know who we are as a person and know what we want. That is usually when we are independently thinking of ourselves as individuals but this journey usually don’t usually begin till we are in our 30s or 40s and that is usually when we start aging.
I still don’t know who created the idea of if you are older you are not suppose to have long hair. Look at Madonna at 56, Goldie Hawn at 68 , Christie Brinkley 60.

They all have long hair but the key to long hair is healthy hair.

10 secrets that make your extensions last longer 

Knowing how to care for extensions should be a big part of the decision making when getting  extensions. At my salon we work with extension clients everyday. After all it still surprises me when some clients come with giant matted patches all over their head and it’s just then that they ask me what should they have done to prevent hours of removal time and possible damage to their natural hair. Low quality hair care products and improper maintenance is the number one reason that extensions don’t last as long.

1- Don’t shampoo or get the hair wet for 48 hours after the application. It takes 48 hours for bonding process to complete. Start by tilting your head back not forward and use your finger in circular motion to shampoo.

2- Brush,brush, brush. Everyone has natural shedding between 50 to 100 strands a day. It is common to loose a few strands of extensions over time . That is due to natural shedding or seal opening of each bond. Brush hair thoroughly ,starting from the bottom and working your way up.

3- Use high quality extension friendly shampoos and conditioners. Your products need to be sulfate and silicone free.

4- braid your hair before going to sleep or before going into chlorine or salt water.

5- Never sleep with your hair wet. It cause your extensions to tangle and mat with your own hair

6- Thermal protecting spray before using curling iron or flat iron help to minimize the damage.

7- Apply hair treatment from mid-shaft of the hair to the ends once a week.

8- Satin or silk pillowcase is the best thing to sleep on. It helps to protect hair and hair extensions from damage while sleeping.

9- Coloring and any kinds of chemical on your hair needs to be done by a trained professional who knows how to work with extension.

10-Make an appointment with your stylist every 6-8 weeks for slight trim to keep the hair looking healthy and shiny. Getting hair extensions is a huge investment and requires a bit different TLC.I hope these tips helps to have beautiful hair day everyday.

How do I know which type of hair extension would be best for me? 

There are some factors to consider when you decide to get hair extensions.

First, you need to decide if you want to get them done on a short or long term basis. Usually, short term extensions are used for things such as an event , photo shoot or maybe just giving your hair some time to grow out longer.  Or, you may wanting them for long term because your hair is naturally fine and thin or your hair never grows out past a certain length.

If you read my previous blogs you would understand how important it is to choose an expert to do the application process. You have to look at it as you would going to a doctor. If you have a heart problem you wouldn’t just go to any physician. You want a cardiologist who is familiar with the most advanced technology to treat you . The same goes for hair extensions.  An expert in hair extensions will be able to tell you what your choices are. The best way to get the most options is to find a stylist who is familiar and has experience with various methods and brands. They don’t just do one method or use one company as their supplier.

To sum all this up:

1- Determine if you want the extensions for very short time, a longer time or for as long as you care about your appearance.
2-Find an extension expert, even if you have to travel to her/him.
3-Have a clear budget considering your maintenance and products needed for up keep.
4- Trust the expert’s suggestions.

How do I find the BEST salon?

One of the most important decisions in any woman’s life is her choice of salon. While most people will say it has to do with who she marries, or what she wears on her wedding day, but to even get to that point, she has to look good.  Above that, how does she feel?  What woman would go out of the house, let along on her wedding day, not looking and feeling her best? This is why we say a woman’s choice in salons is such an important decision to make as her hair affects every part of her daily life.

Whether you are new to the area or just looking to make a change, finding your new hair home can be a challenging task.

You could just Google, “Best hair salon near me” and choose the very first name to pop up but what makes that the best? Who wants to gamble when it comes to their hairstyle or hair extensions?

Your hair and confidence in that should be just as important to our stylists as they are to you; keep reading to find out what key indicators will truly reveal the best hair salon for you.

What to Look for When Finding the Perfect Salon:

How receptive is the salon team? Are you greeted warmly when you walk in? Do you feel welcomed and is the team available to answer any questions that you might have?

Location. Do you want a salon that is close to your home? The added convenience of having a salon that is local and close by can make it that much more convenient.

Does the salon or stylist offer consultations? You have a lot of options when it comes to your style.   With options comes questions, especially if you’re on the fence about your next hair color or hair extensions. Ask if one of the salon stylists can provide you with a consultation to sit down with you, really listen to your needs and offer the best solutions for you and your hair goals.

 

Ask about their tools & styling process. There’s almost nothing worse than taking your style home and realizing you don’t have proper tools and knowledge to recreate your hair outside of the salon!  Be sure to ask questions of your stylist.  What tools and products are being used and why?  Don’t be afraid to get in the mix and allow your stylist to show you tips and tricks for your hair at home!

Read Reviews. Visit the salon’s Facebook page and search online for Google and Yelp! reviews to see what guests have to say.

How To Grow Hair Faster?

Whether you are trying to grow your hair out for a new style, or your old style didn’t quite turn out the way you wanted and you need your hair to grow back fast, the hardest part of the hair growth process is being patient. It can take some women months to grow their hair down to their shoulders and longer if they are prone to breakage and split ends. If you have been searching for some effective ways to make your hair grow faster, keep reading as we are going to share some of our favourite tips on how you can grow longer, stronger, healthier hair in no time.

Here are some of the best ways to grow hair faster:

Drink more water- water is one of the most important things we can put into our bodies. It cools us down, it gives us life and it helps to regulate our bodies’ systems. The healthier we are, the faster our hair will grow.

Eat healthy- eating a healthy, balanced diet will give your body the nutrients it needs and will even help your hair grow longer and stronger.

Reduce stress- by reducing your stress levels, your body will become much healthier and it will be able to use more of the nutrients you take in. Stress can affect your body and mind and can slow down the body’s systems, especially hair growth.

Frequent Scalp Massages- massage your scalp thoroughly every time you wash your hair. This will stimulate the hair follicles causing your hair to grow.

Take your vitamins- high quality vitamins and specialised supplements are available that can provide your hair with the nutrients it needs for new hair growth.

Cut your hair- while cutting your hair doesn’t sound like a good way to help it grow, it actually is. Cutting your hair removes some of the weight that is being placed on your scalp and on the existing hair follicles. Without the additional weight, your hair can grow healthier and faster.

Stop washing your hair every day- instead of washing your hair daily, try washing it every other day or use a dry shampoo. Washing your hair too frequently can wash away some of the important oils and minerals it needs to grow.

Be patient- patience is the key to any time consuming process. Growing your hair can take time even if you follow all of the steps above so it is important to be patient.

Hair Extensions For Thin Hair

Do you have thin hair or fine hair and have always wanted to get extensions but thought it was impossible? Many women with very thin, or fine, hair have avoided getting hair extensions because they think they won’t adhere to their hair, they won’t look right, or they just won’t work. For the longest time, this was true and if you had thin hair, there wasn’t much you could do about it. That is, until now.

New advancements in hair care, especially in hair extensions, has made it possible for women with thin hair to get the hair extensions they need to give their hair the beautiful volume they have always dreamed of. This new method of attaching hair extensions to fine or thinning hair is called tape in hair extensions and they have helped thousands of women create a dramatic new look for their hair. Another suitable method is cold fusion extensions. Fusion method need to be customized to micro mini bonds which are finer and smaller than a grain of rice.

Tape In Hair Extensions

 

Tape in hair extensions are a relatively newer technique and are best suited for women with thin or fine hair. The tape extensions are bonded to your natural hair with tape and are usually 1.5” wide wefts applied row by row. The tape wefts are thin and lightweight, leaving no damage. The benefit of tape in hair extensions for thin hair is that the single method application can be used as a solution. It provides long wear without any damage to thin hair and tape in extensions require no special tools or chemicals.

Other Options for Thin Hair

While tape in hair extensions are best for thin hair, there are some other options that you might consider. They are not as effective as tape in extensions, but some women do prefer these other solutions.
Halo hair extensions which are better than Clip in hair extensions are temporary extensions with the option to take them out as often as you prefer. Clip in hair extensions tend to be heavy and slide out. Large clips could put strain on the thin hair causing bald spots or other damage.
Fusion hair extensions have keratin bonding on the ends and controlled and mild heat or ultrasonic waves soften the keratin to bond during application. When fusion are applied with controlled heat the tong is heated on one side. The temperature, which is approximately the same temperature as the lowest setting on a standard curling iron, is used to soften the bond so it can be molded to your natural hair. Unlike other systems, where glue guns and wax melting pots are used, the proper applicator tool allows for a very clean and precise application. The result is undetectable attachments that are brushable, durable and non-damaging.

Whichever hair extension you choose for thin hair, be sure to have them professionally installed and make sure to find by a reputable salon that specialises in hair extensions.
