Tape Hair Extensions are by far the kindest solution for your hair when choosing your hair extensions. I find that many clients come to me after having bad experiences with hair extensions, they are looking for a better solution or a therapist with more experience. One of the reasons people end up having bad experiences is because there are several different extension systems out there. I have been using hair extensions myself for 17 years, and for about 7 years I found myself testing and sourcing the best quality hair and the most effective system to prevent hair and scalp damage.
Tested Hair Extensions
I believe that all hair extensionists should have years of practice and experience in the different types of hair and systems and be using the correct materials, I’ve come across some seriously bad chemicals being used on my clients such as nail polish remover, and I fear that many ‘hair extensionists’ are popping up without the right tools and experience. This is damaging people’s hair and scalp, at a larger cost to their health, wellbeing and hair.
I have found that the long-term wearing of ‘Pre-Bonded’ hair extensions and ‘Micro-Rings’ created breakage of the natural hair causing tufting and thinning, with many extensionists fitting them to tightly, causing pain and discomfort for the client when sleeping, touching the hair and styling it, some even complaining of a constant and uncomfortable pull on their roots. Also, when speaking to new clients having ‘move up maintenance’ with me, I am finding more and more that people are not being told to have maintenance every 6 weeks. As a result of this, the hair was not combed out and a new ring attached which then caused too much tangling and is damaging to the hair.
Damage, pain, discomfort and thinning of the hair can be avoided with the right hair, application and after-care. If you are reading this please make sure you stay informed on the best practice and ensure your hair extensionist is looking after you in the right way. Feel free to get in touch for a consultation with me to discuss further.
My goal was to find a solution that did not damage the natural hair, looked natural and didn’t break or tangle our natural hair. I spent 7 years testing different hair tapes. Many of my clients come to me having had tapes misplaced by another extensionist, or the tapes have not been removed with maintenance. Maintenance involves thoroughly washing and cleaning the extensions and replacing the original tapes with new tapes on the extensions. If this is not done correctly the tapes will bleed, causing knotting or damage to your natural hair. I feel like I spend my life correcting people’s hair, there seems to be a real lack of knowledge out there. The last thing you want is to damage your natural hair. I strongly advise having maintenance every 6 weeks to keep the hair in good shape and your own hair in great condition.
What to Look for When Choosing a Hair Extensionist
- Good quality tapes are very important
- Quality of training. It seems there are hair extensionists popping up all over the place, many without the knowledge to deliver a high-quality service without enough industry knowledge. Make sure your extensionist is experienced and sourcing the best hair and tools.
- Quality of hair. It’s shocking some of the hair on the market. Make sure the hair is ethically sourced human hair and is of a high quality and not animal hair. You’d be surprised.
- Positioning practice. It looks easier than it is, practice makes perfect. Make sure your extensionist isn’t positioning extensions in a way that it’s pulling out your natural hair and causing damage. I see this too often.
