How is Weft Hair Extensions different from tranditional hair extensions?
Hair Weft Extensions come without any attachment mechanism, as opposed to clip-ins or tape-ins, which you can attach on your own. With a bundle, you can go to your hairstylist and have them work with you to create a hairstyle that fits your desires.Your hairstylist will put them in by creating a weave hair, so you won’t have to worry about upkeep or adjusting them each day.
Please note that hair weft bundles can be used with clips,glue or made into pre-bonded hair extensions,but these attachments are not included in the hair extensions.
How to Brush Your Hair Extensions
Tools: A natural bristle paddle brush or a hair extension loop-brush
Method: Separate into two sections left side/right side, start by brushing out any tangles by working your way up the hair to the roots. When you brush close to the roots, you can brush over the bonds using a soft bristle brush.
Frequency: Every Morning and night
How to Wash Your Hair Extensions
Tools: Hairbrush, good quality shampoo and conditioner
Method: Brush your hair thoroughly before you wash it. Make sure that when showering you don’t have the shower pressure on full force. Wet your hair and shampoo in a downwards motion. Massage your scalp in-between the bonds with your fingertips. Ensure that you rinse all of the shampoo out to prevent residue from building up. Then add the conditioner through your lengths. Rinse the conditioner out, pat dry with a towel to remove excess water. Add a heat protector or leave-in moisture product if you are planning to blow-dry
Tip: Mix some water with conditioner in a spray bottle and spray your hair extensions through the mid-to lengths before you wash your hair extensions; this will help prevent over drying from frequent washes.
Styling Your Hair Extensions
Tools: Hairbrush, crocodile clips, heat protection product, hot curling or iron wand, etc.
Method: Use heat protection products first to protect your natural hair and extensions from potential wear and tear and heat damage. Avoid using hairspray. Always ensure that your hair is 100 percent dry before applying any heat tools. Use clips to neatly work on individual sections at a time. Style as desired, curl, crimp, straighten, blow-dry etc…
Tip: Avoid holding heat near the bonds at the roots of your hair for too long.
Sleeping with Hair Extensions
Tools: Hair tie & hairbrush. A silk pillowcase is advised.
Method: Brush your hair, put it in a plait to sleep. You can also sleep with a satin pillowcase which will help prevent matting because of the smooth surface.
Tip: Never go to bed with wet hair.
