I am sorry that you have had such a negative and traumatic experience after having pre-bonded hair extensions applied by an independent.
Hundreds of people all over the world have various hair extensions applied using very different techniques. From time to time a small percentage experience incorrect application, poor quality products, unqualified technicians, destructive removal techniques that damage hair and mis-information that results in their hair extensions reacting to certain products or mis-treatment. ...More >
Which ever one of these it is, it is not very nice when it happens to your hair. If you still currently have some residue of bond left in your hair my advice is as follows:
Try to identify a qualified hair extension technician that has been successfully working with clients for at least 12 months to help you professionally remove the residue of the glue.
If you are not able to locate someone within your region to help you, perhaps you can send me an email and I will try to point you in the right direction.
You can also help yourself to remove the residue of the bond by following these steps:
You will need to purchase some Ultimate bond adhesive remover (non oil based)
You will also need to purchase a bond disconnector pliers. Purchase a good quality brush that will not pull your hair out. The hair extension brushes are good for this and can be purchased from our website. When you receive them you will need to spray the adhesive remover on each section, leave for 3 minutes, and then clamp each section with the disconnector and watch the bond dissolve and break away. Do not pull hair, if bond does not break away, use more of the adhesive remover. When you have finished, apply a good quality shampoo with conditioner to your hair before you wet it. Leave the shampoo on for 10 minutes, and then wash out.
Repeat washing your hair a couple of times and brushing it with the brush until all residue of the bond has gone. Let your hair dry naturally, and then spray in some leave in conditioner.
Your hair has been traumatised, so if you can give it a rest for at least a week before you do anything to it, this will help
