How long will the hair extensions last?
Hair extensions can last from 3 to 6 months depending on how well they were applied, the care the stylist and client give them, the length of the client's hair, and how fast the client's hair grows.
The longer the client's hair is, the better it will cover the hair extension bonds allowing them to "grow out" more without being seen.
Can I still color the client's hair if they have extensions?
Yes! The client's hair should be colored 2-3 days before placement of the hair extensions and any time 2-3 weeks after the application.
Can they get hair conditioner on the bonds?
If the bond is correctly applied to the hair, the client will be able to shampoo and condition the same way they always treated their hair.
What about styling products?
As long as the bonds have been properly applied and closed on the client's hair, there is no reason to worry about using any type of styling products on the hair extensions.
Do I have to wash the hair everyday or can I skip days in between?
With hair extensions, many people find they shampoo less during a week because the hair is fuller than normal and doesn't get as oily, flat, or unkempt looking as their own hair.
However, many woman who exercise daily wash their hair extensions every day with no adverse effects on the condition or longevity of their new hair.
Can the hair extensions air dry naturally?
When the proper application procedures are followed, the keratin bond is completely sealed. You will be able to blow dry or let your hair extensions dry naturally.
If they are taking medications, will that affect their hair extensions?
If one of the side effects of their medication is excessive hair loss or increased shedding, then they will lose more because of their own hair shedding. Medications in no way affect the hair extensions themselves.
