3 months for the single bonded ( microrings , nanorings , keratin pre bonded and fusion bonding ). Some hair grows faster than others but when the bonds have one inch regrowth (2.5 cm) it’s time to remove and re-apply them closer to the scalp using the same hair or replacing with new hair. Every 6 weeks you are advised to visit your stylist for maintenance.
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.
3 to 4 inches is the minimum length required (12 cm)
Some people prefer have them removed and re placed on the same day but it’s recommended to give your hair a rest from time to time. I always include a trim of the natural hair with every set of extensions as part of the service.
Only if you really trust the supplier or you have used it before. There is a big market out there and I would be careful when buying hair from just anywhere . I provide a vast choice in grade, colour and texture suitable for each individual style and pockets. Hair types
Many of our clients have heard the word Remy but are not sure about what it actually means? Well, it’s not a brand… simply it indicates that the hair is still coated in its cuticles and are all following a roots to ends directions, keeping the hair stronger, easy to brush and shiny. Some hair on the market is not genuine Remy hair and after a few washes it will get dry and difficult to manage. I advise everyone to seek expert advice when buying hair.
Brush every day from dry , take sections hold the roots firmly and gently start from the ends and work your way up towards the roots. Use after care conditioning spray to detangle . Make sure your bonds are separated at the roots . The use of serum is recommended.
Never wash your extensions with the head over you would rather do so while you are showering with your head back, it will prevent tangling. Use downwards movements instead of circular ones, make sure you wash your scalp in between the bonds as it needs to be clean to hold your extensions . Just stroke the ends with the shampoo. Repeat , the hair must be washed twice . Wash your hair 2 or 3 times per week, everyday is not recommended. After having washed out the shampoo, towel dry the hair and apply your conditioner carefully avoiding the roots leave for few minutes and rinse well. Excessive heat and moisture like sun beds , steam rooms and saunas will make the bonds soft and it should be cut down to a minimum . Never brush the hair when wet as the bonds are at their weakest.
After rinsing the conditioner pat dry, apply serum on the ends , rough dry, then in sections start smooth blow drying with a round brush or paddle brush making sure the bristle don’t have bobbles that can catch . Always make sure that the bonds are dry and give them a cold blast to make sure they cool down to stay strong and hold the hair well. Never sleep with your hair wet. You can tong or straighten with irons as you please.
Any Aftercare products that will benieft your hair/extensions will be recommended by your stylist during your Consultation/Fitting.
Some shampoos can weaken the bonds and allow excessive shedding. When wearing extensions it is advisable to use a salt free shampoo, with a low ph and deep cleansing. The conditioners for extensions will keep your hair softer for longer because they are designed for hair which is no longer attached to the scalp, and receiving the natural nourishment’s from the body. The use of regular hair conditioners will quickly dry out extension hair.
