DYI Keratin hair extensions might seem like a good idea.
Maybe your friend or a well intentioned family member thinks that applying extensions is easy to do, but it is best to leave this type of work to a certified stylist. (Like shown)
My business offers very thorough hair extensions consultations for installation and for removal.
If you hair is medium to thick then a full application can consist of up to 400 individual bonds. The amount of hair installed will, also vary according to your natural density, too.
Most applications can take 4 to 8+ hours to install. It can be expected to lose some extensions, it has been my experience than my clientele does not lose an excessive amount.
Hair Extension Removal
A professional removal is just as important as a certified professional installation. Hair extensions removal appointments will vary in the length of time for a various of reasons.
- The type of design
- How much hair was installed
- Full lengthening covers more of the head
- Just Volume
One of the best features about keratin hair extensions is the fact that you are able to brush then right at the scalp. If you properly take care of your extensions, then there will be not matting.
More importantly is the brushing because the attachment will encase your natural hair. Your natural hair will still need to shed, but will not have anywhere to go. The extension next to it will be going through the same process.
It is really important that you brush, brush, brush your hair extensions!

- If you are new to the salon, then you it will be necessary to book a new client consultation.

Tips on saving time & money:
If you do not like or enjoy having lengthy salon appointments and/or look for a way to save money when it is time to have your extensions removed, then be sure to brush your hair extensions daily. Matted extensions are caused by improper care; which can result in damaging your own natural hair.
Matted extensions will prolong your salon visit, and certainly is avoidable.
