Hi could you please help me I do hair extensions and some clients have come back saying a good few have fallen out after 2 or 3 weeks. Any suggestions on what Iím doing wrong
|Answered By: |
Firstly taking care of extensions at home is quite an art, so itís important you make sure your client follows the below: ...More >
- Do not apply conditioner near the applied extension as the moisturisers in the conditioner can make the extensions slip or fall out
- Be careful when combing the wet hair not to catch the comb into the extension bond
- Only use a bristle brush on the extensions and do not brush vigorously - rest the palm of your hand on the head whilst brushing to prevent to much tension
- Dry and style the hair with carefully as excessive pulling and dragging will loosen the extension or may damage the natural hair
Be assured it is normal to lose a few extensions in the first few weeks, I would just make sure your clients are taking care of the hair and also that when you apply the extensions the hair is clean and oil free at the roots.
Poor application would normally result in the extensions falling out within days.
Hope this is helpful

Okay, so here goes...I have had black hair off and on for as long as I can remember but now that I am getting older I felt it looked a little too harsh! I decided I wanted to go burgundy but first thing first, I had to get the black out! So I used a colour remover to strip out the black but I made the mistake of putting it on my roots...Not only did the black hair colour come out, but it left my hair uneven like maybe some areas were more saturated than others despite me drowning my hair in it. Not only that, but I also had very hot roots! I figured I could dye over it with the burgundy and everything be fine as long as I left it on my roots longer than I did my ends...But not the case! My hair is definitely burgundy but...Many different shades of burgundy! It is not as noticeable as before I dyed it! However, I would like an even dye but really need some advice before doing anything else to my hair! Please help me! What can I do to get all of these shades the same colour?! I do not have the money for a hairdresser and I donít want to go back black!

You donít say how long your hair is but I should imagine it must fairly long as you wouldnít have such an uneven result otherwise. The uneven result will be to do with the porosity of your hair and the roots lifted so light as there wasnít any build up of the black to remove. So how do you remedy yourself - I suggest you get a clarifying shampoo, if you canít find one use baby shampoo. Shampoo your hair as normal but leave the shampoo on for 5 minutes before rinsing then repeat the process again. This should deep cleanse your hair and lift out some of the old colour build up. Then apply a treatment mask they are many available for professional salons as well as on the high street, you want a protein and moisture repair or re-constructor. Apply according to the manufacturers instructions and cover with a plastic cap if you can, the warmth from your head makes it more effective. Once thatís done you need to rinse and apply a protein leave in conditioner again available in salons as well as the high street spray it all over your hair before combing through and then drying. Mix up the burgundy colour and apply to the roots add 10mls & 10 mls of water to the mixture and apply to the middle lengths and ends of your hair. Process as before and you should have a far more even result. When you colour your hair at the roots only refresh the ends if they need to be refreshed and always add water and protein spray, this way the colour doesnít build up or damage your hair unnecessarily. ...More >
Hope this helps

Sometimes we do such much to our hair that it does actually forget its natural look and the action you need to take is as follows - buy the best moisturising shampoo, moisturising conditioner, treatment masque, leave in conditioner and oil or serum you can afford, professional salon products are always better in my opinion as they contain a more concentrated amount of the ingredients needed. You must then have a trim at a salon and then 3 times per week shampoo, apply the treatment and cover with a plastic cap or bag and a warm towel if possible. Leave that on your hair for 20 mins., rinse and then apply conditioner, comb the conditioner through with a wide tooth comb before rinsing. Spray the leave in conditioner onto your hair and comb through again. 3 - 5 pumps of oil of serum also need to be applied and combed through. All the combing through is to evenly distribute the product so the affects of it are all over your hair. Leave your hair to dry naturally and try not to touch or brush it. Its very hard to be so strict with the regime at first but it will be worth it. After about 2/3 weeks your hair will start to recover its natural pattern of movement due to the fact its internal structure has received moisture and protein, then you can see how you feel about your natural hair and go from there. I always recommend you do a treatment weekly on your hair even when the condition is good. ...More >
Good luck and I am hopeful your hair comes back to life and you love it.
