Maintenance for extensions is every 6-10 weeks depending on the condition of your hair.
(The stylist will advise the appropriate time for you)
Nano Beads/Nano Links /iTips
Nanos are the tiniest, most discrete method of hair extensions.
They are attached to the hair using a tiny nano bead. Since the beads are so small they can be worn in very thin hair and even medical hair loss clients. We find out clients prefer this method because they are so comfortable and can be treated like their natural hair.
- Hair is reusable
- Maintenance is every 6-8 weeks.
Braidless Weave / Hand-Tied Weft / Natural Beaded Row / Invisible Flat Weft
Braidless weave is the most common method of hair extensions. Great for clients with naturally thick hair.
Microbeads are attached to your hair horizontally, then wefts are sewn across the micro bead to attach them securely.
Hair is reusable.
- Maintenance is every 6-10 weeks.
- Both methods are attached to the hair using beads.
- Beaded techniques are the safest on the hair, there is no heat, no glue & no harsh chemicals used to remove the extensions.
Methods can also be combined to achieve the desired effect.
At Home Care:
- Wash with sulphate free shampoo
- Deep condition weekly
- Brush & serum daily
- Always blow dry after wash
Never Sleep With Wet Hair
Refit / Maintenance Appointment:
Once you've invested in your extensions, the hair will last 6-24 months with proper care. Every 6-10 weeks.
As your natural hair grows out, the hair you would naturally shed (over 100 hairs per day)
The shed hairs have been trapped in the bead, which can cause matting. During a maintenance appointment the stylist will remove the extension, comb out the shed hairs and with a new bead apply extension again.
Are extensions damaging?
Properly installed extensions, using the appropriate method for you, balanced to your hair thickness and density will not cause any damage to your hair.
