FAQ / AFTERCARE
Prepare for your fitting – Wash your hair on the morning of the fitting, preferably with a clarifying shampoo. A clarifying shampoo ensures all residues are removed. These residues must be removed as they can effect the bonds. Do not apply any styling products. Thoroughly dry your hair in its usual parting and straighten if possible. This makes it easier to see where the bonds are going to be applied.
How long should my hair be to have hair extensions.
We recommend that you have hair that is at least 3 to 4 inches long at the shortest bits in order for it to look as natural as possible.
Are hair extensions bad for my hair.
Hair extensions are very safe for the hair if they are installed and removed professionally with the correct aftercare instructions being followed.
Can I straighten or curl my hair.
Yes. You can straighten, blow-dry, curl, and style human hair extensions, just as you would your own hair.
Do I have to give my hair a rest.
There is no need to give your hair a rest in between hair extension sets if they are expertly applied and removed. There should be no damage to your own hair underneath as it has continued to grow underneath the extensions. Most people prefer to have their extensions removed and fitted on the same day to keep their amazing long haired look!
Can I reuse the hair extensions after they have been removed?
As long as the hair has been well-maintained, it can be re-tipped and applied again many times.
Can I style my hair normally
Yes, you can wash and style your extensions in exactly the same way as you would your own hair.
How long does it take to apply Hair Extensions
This depends on each individual client and how much hair they have, A full head usually takes 4 hours to fit on average and a half head takes around 2 – 5 hours depending on the hair extensions method. Cutting and styling add additional time.
How will you match the Hair Extension colour to my own – If a face to face consultation is possible then your colour will be matched during this session. However, if distance and time mean that your consultation has to be done over the phone, you can send me some photos via text or email.
Why is there shedding when I remove my hair extensions.
Hair sheds naturally on a daily basis. It’s normal to loose up to fifty hairs a day. Hair extensions don’t stop this entirely natural process. The hairs that are shed over a period of time become trapped in the hair extensions and released when the extensions are removed.
Can I colour my Hair Extensions
With so many extension colors readily available it is unlikely that you’ll need to dye them but as the extension hair is 100% human hair, they may be colored. It is however strongly advised to do a strand test first as the extension hair may “take” the colour differently to your own hair. Try to avoid getting any hair dye on the bonds or rings themselves. Colouring your Hair Extensions is done so at your own risk.
Will people be able to notice if I am wearing extensions
Your hair extensions will blend perfectly with your own hair, match your colour and texture. Trimming and shaping after each fitting is part of the service.
How long will my hair extensions last.
You can wear your hair extensions for a maximum of 3 – 6 months before they will need to be refitted depending on the method
Will hair extensions damage my hair – Damage only ever occurs if the application is poor or incorrect, or if the correct aftercare advice hasn’t been followed.
