Beaded weft extensions
Are applied with lightweight silicone beads. During installation small strands of your natural hair are looped through the bead with small strands of the weft hair to secure application.
Recommended more for medium to coarse hair.
First 24 to 72 hours after application you will feel some tightness on your scalp due to the application. Will go away after the first few days.
Every 4 to 8 weeks you simply come in for the beads to be moved up and retightened as your hair has grown.
I Tip Hair Extensions
I tip extensions are pre-bonded tips that are made up of several hair strands glued together at the tip but the application requires no heat or glue.
They are applied to the hair with silicone or silicone free microbeads where by an equal amount of hair is pulled through the micro bead to the scalp using a hair hook tool.
This process takes approximately 2-4 hours to install a full head of hair extensions.
This application is moderately expensive since it can last up to 6 months. ( It’s recommended that you still come in for maintenance to move up any slips) They are the most natural extensions and work well for any hair.
How to take care of your extensions
Hair extensions are to only be washed with sulfate or paraben free shampoos specifically on the roots. By ensuring that your shampoo and conditioner reach your scalp it will help soften and detangle when brushing.
Also recommended to stay away from salt or chlorinated water. If your do come across this during the summertime I suggest using Barracuda Aquia Dechlorinating shampoo to clarify hair while also eliminating chlorine odor.
You also want to avoid going to bed with a wet head and treat your extensions with care NO PULLING be very gentle and use a looper or wet brush to avoid any tuggling.
By adding a leave in conditioner and by doing weekly mask/treatments to your hair the lifespan of your hair extensions will last up to a year or even longer depending on how often they are worn.
