Are you curious about hair extensions? When considering the process you are likely interested in how often you will need to go in for maintenance, and how long the process takes and other such pertinent questions. Here we take a look at the answers to questions regarding hair extensions Thousand Oaks.
The style, look, and length of our hair has a significant impact on our overall look. Hair extensions not only add length but also thickness and volume. If for any reason you want longer, thicker hair, but have not been able to grow it out the way you want, this is an instant solution.
If you have gotten a really bad haircut, extensions can completely cover up the mistakes and give you a beautiful head of hair until it grows back naturally. Those wanting to highlight their hair, but don’t want to use chemicals on their actual hair, can have a hair extension with the desired highlights.
How Do I Care For My Hair Extensions?
Extensions, whether made of real hair or synthetic, do not receive body oil like your actual hair does. For this reason, they do not need to be washed nearly as often as your natural hair does. It is usually recommended that you wash them once about every 18 to 20 times you wear them.
The products used to clean your extensions should be free of alcohol and sulfate. The use of an overnight conditioning mask is also recommended. Washing is pretty much the same as with your actual hair. Simply wash with shampoo, rinse and then apply a quality conditioner. The hair extension should then be placed flat on a towel and allowed to air dry overnight.
How long does it take to get hair extensions Thousand Oaks?
Using the most common method it generally takes 30 minutes to an hour. There are other methods that take considerably longer. Methods such as “fusion” where part of the extension is attached to your real hair using adhesive can take several hours.
It should come as no surprise that the methods that take longer cost more. The basic method not only takes less time but is considerably cheaper in price.
How Are Hair Extensions Attached?
There are several methods for attaching hair extensions Thousand Oaks:
- Top Pieces – These are most typically for those who are balding on the top of their head and want to cover it up with something that looks natural. These are attached either using micro beading or a clip to hold them in place.
- Clip-In – These are fast and easy and often used for special occasions where the customer simply wants to look their best for a special event. This style extension is capable of adding volume as well as length.
- Fusion – These take longer to place into the hair and cost more. But the end result means they need less maintenance and can be treated as the wearer’s actual hair.
- Tape-In – This is a method most typically used when the customer wants more thickness or volume to their hair. This method does not take a long time to install, but they do require the wearer to come in every other month to have the extension removed and reapplied.
