Are you sick and tired of your current hair style and want to change it immediately? Hair extensions can add instant length volume, thickness or highlights to your hair in just a few hours.
They can be attached to your natural hair using many different methods available today. For example, there is bonding, cold and warm fusion, sew-in, braid-in, heat-sealed in and even clipped in. The hair that is used can be synthetic or human and varies in price and quality.
The method of attachment often times dictates the type of hair that will be used. Hair extensions can be a little pricey, especially if you are going for quality. You definitely get what you pay for with hair extensions, as they are not cheap. Many stylists receive special training from various hair extension companies and become certified to perform specific methods of attachment. Hair extensions are not a one size fits all, and some methods may not be suitable for certain hair textures and conditions.
Here is a list of the TOP FIVE reasons that women and men get hair extensions added to their natural hair.
- Add INSTANT length, volume or thickness to their hair. They have always wanted long hair or thicker hair and for whatever reason have never been able to grow their own hair out.
- Cover up a really bad hair cut. So, you got a really short shag hair style and you absolutely hate it? Solution: Hair Extensions
- Add bold or subtle highlights to your hair without chemical processing.
- Get a new look for a special occasion, i.e. wedding, prom, formal event
- Just for fun!!!! Some people like to experiment with their hair styles. Hair extensions offer an instant new look.
In short, Hair Extensions can be a fun and exciting way to add length, volume and highlights to your natural hair. It is important to do your research on hair extensions by finding out about the different methods available, finding a qualified stylist and maintaining the hair extensions once they are in.

After care for your hair extensions
Find all the items you need to help with your human hair extensions maintenance here; Aftercare
We recommend the use of our own brand hair care products on all of our extensions and refuse the right for a refund if our products have not been used to maintain the hair correctly. Hair Extensions can last up to 3 months with continuous wear if applied and maintained correctly.
Prior to the installation of hair extensions always ensure your hair is washed preferably with a clarifying treatment or anti tap solution shampoo and no conditioner of any kind. This ensures all residues including oil and product build up are removed; these residues must be removed as this can prevent slippage and loss after installation. Your hair must be fully dried and free of any styling products as this will give the best base for application.
After installation of your hair we recommend our own brand of Aftercare products which have been formulated to restore the natural hair and at the same time condition the hair extensions, which results in optimum conditioning for both your natural hair and the 100% Human Hair Extensions. We do not recommend colouring, tinting or perming the extension hair as these types of products contain elements that can damage the extension hair and even though our extensions are 100% human hair, they are not receiving nutrients from the scalp like your own natural hair.
The first thing you may notice after your hair extension installation is that for a few days your scalp may feel tender and sore, this is normal and will pass and not a sign of a problem but just the added weight of the extension hair, if this does persist for longer than a few days this could be a result of the extensions been fitted too tightly in which case you would need to get this checked.
Please Note: - Lighter Shades have a bleach content therefore will not last as long in life span as non-bleached hair. The lighter shades will need extra care and less heat application to increase the lifespan this also applies to shades in the crazy colour shades as they are more prone to fading than other shades as they are done on to a bleach base.
