Our Guide to Hair Extensions
When people are considering getting hair extensions, the most popular questions on their minds are how long will they last and which ones will be the best for them.
Traditionally hair extensions are applied with a glue base. However, there is a technique that allows the extensions be undetectable. This technique is called Micro Ring and causes less damage to the hair because it does not use glue. The user can expect that these hair extensions will last for 3-4 months if cared for properly on a daily basis.
This method works well because it uses very small plastic covered metal rings that connect the extensions to the user’s hair. These rings clamp onto the hair in a way that is sturdy, yet comfortable on the user’s head. The user can then wash and style their hair just as they would if all of the hair on their head was natural.
The time it takes to apply these extensions will depend on the thickness of the person’s hair although it can be expected to take about 2-4 hours.
Some people do not believe that hair extensions that do not use glue will work as well as those that do. However, the user can relax, knowing that these extensions are just as secure and there should be no fear in them slipping out. They are easy to take care of on a daily basis.
Pre-Bonded Hair Extensions
A newer method to the traditional gluing of hair extensions is the pre-bonded method. Those who use the glue method prefer this type because it is cleaner and allows for less loss of hairs. Extensions using this method contain about 180-200 hairs that are combined together with the use of keratine protein glue. A fusion iron is then used to connect the extension to the user’s natural hair. It can be expected that in about 3-4 months, the extensions will need to be removed and then replaced. However, this length of time greatly depends on how well the user cares for their extensions on a daily basis.
The users of this method find that others do not generally detect that they are wearing extensions. This has a lot to do with the bonds being hidden as well as the fact that the user’s hair will cascade naturally from their head. The user will be able to wash and style their hair as they normally would, whether that means straightening or curling.
It is our choice not to use the old method of gluing as the pre-bonded method seems to give a more natural result. With the old glue method, the hair must be sealed properly in order to keep water from entering the bonded areas while washing. This will then allow the glue to become weak and the end result will be hair extensions that falls out.
With the pre-bonded method, the strands are carefully sealed prior to their applications. This helps to not only keep the hair sealed in the glue to stay dry, it also keeps the strands all together which virtually eliminates the fear of strands falling out.
If the pre-bonded hair is properly cared for, there will be little to no damage to the user’s real hair.
This method will take approximately 3-5 hours to apply. This time greatly depends on the hair’s thickness.
It is understandable that someone may only want hair extensions for a special occasion or a short period of time. Whether long hair is impractical for a job, or the user just wants a different look occasionally, clip-in hair extensions may very well be the solution.
For a small fee, we will color match the user’s new extensions to their natural hair color. One problem with buying extensions online is the buyer cannot be assured that the colors will match their natural hair color.
By using our company, this problem can be eliminated because we use a remy colour ring in order to obtain the closest color match possible.
When the hair extensions are delivered to the buyer, we will guide them step by step in the fitting and application of the hair extensions. It is possible to wear hair extensions in different styles, such as a ponytail and we are here to explain to our customers how.
We can be contacted by telephone or email to set up an appointment time for the customer’s free consultation. The delivery time for the extensions to arrive after the consultation is about 5 working days. If a personal consultation appointment is not convenient, our customers are welcome to send a small hair sample by post. This will allow us to match the hair color properly before placing the order.
Full Head or Half Head
Many customers want to know how many strands they will need to purchase and if they need to buy a full head of extensions.
This is a difficult question since not every full head is 200 strands or half a head, 100 strands. The amount needed for each person is determined by several factors.
It is important to note that whether a person chooses a full head or half head depends on the look they are personally wishing to obtain. If a customer is looking to add thickness and length to their existing look, they should consider a full head. However, if a customer only wants to add volume to the length they already possess, they should choose a half head.
