Hayley asks:
I have Great Length Hair Extensions in my hair for the last year and before that I had Balmain ones for about a year and a half. I have recently noticed that my real hair is only just over an inch long and I am really scared I am going to be left with no hair if I donít get them out. My hair is also platinum blonde and very dry. My hair doesnít seem to grow thatís why I got the extensions can you please advise me what I should do and if it means taking them out then is there anything I can do to help my hair grow?

This does seem to me as though the extensions may not have been applied correctly or you are over processing your hair with colour .I have been applying extensions now for 13years and most of my clientsí hair becomes thicker and longer. I would recommend that you switch to a more gentle product and brand, for instance Racoon International. Their bonding is made from natural ingredients and will not damage your hair if applied correctly by a stylist who has been trained by Racoon International. You must make sure the salon and stylist are Racoon trained and approved. The bond which is attached to the hair should be about half an inch away from the root and the bond should be around the size of a grain of rice. The hair that the bond is attached to should be new growth so really if the extensions are put in correctly your hair should not break. Racoon extensions and Micro Wefts come in a gorgeous range of colours Ė a great chemical free option and the colours stay fast and true. I certainly would give your hair a little rest and then start afresh and look to other salons if you donít feel happy where you are going





Denise asks:
My hair is bleached blonde and it turns out pale yellow which is quite brassy, I have been using violet shampoos but they donít help, could you please tell me a good violet based tint to use and the mixing ratio. A tint that I can purchase in the UK eg Goldwell or Wella or Igora.

Wella do a product called Koleston perfect which contains tints and high lift tints, I recommend a 10/0-10/1 ratio equal amounts however would also recommend a quality salon to achieve this rather than do it yourself.







Debbie asks:
I have had real hair extensions put in 3 weeks ago - I had a full head done, over 30 of them fell out! I went back to have them put back in, but they are doing the same again, falling out every time I brush it. It is also really luggy and looks a mess there is hair falling out everywhere all in the house - Iím at my wits end...help.

Hi Debbie - Unfortunately, I have heard this same scenario numerous times. The falling of your extensions may be due to numerous causes.
The bonds were not heated sufficiently.
The bonds were not closed completely at the top and bottom of the bond.
VERY IMPORTANT.
The following should have been explained when you had the extension serviced done. Was your hair clean and free of any product or tint if a color service was done prior to the extension service? When you wash your hair, are you applying conditioner or treatment to the bond area? Are the bonds still wet, if you wash before you go to bed? If you are blow drying with hot air, are you leaving the dryer near the bonds for a long period of time? Are you passing a flat iron or a curling iron over the bonds? Hopefully, the above will answer your problem. If this is the first time that you have had extensions, donít think that this is how it is going to be all of the time.
Good Luck
