What to Avoid When Getting Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions Specialist London

Getting hair extensions fitted is a big and hugely exciting moment for anyone. However, before you go ahead and get your fabulous new look, it is worth taking a few minutes to consider the things that you definitely need to avoid.

The following are some of the fairly common problems that people tend to come across when working out how to proceed. These are the issues that you will want to steer well clear of in order to get the perfect hair extensions that you dream of.

Synthetic Hair Extensions
There is simply no substitute for real human hair when it comes to quality hair extensions. Synthetic hair or hair that has undergone a lot of chemical treatment won’t give you the same look or feel as natural human hair will.

You should look out for virgin hair or remy hair extensions, as this guarantees that only high quality, natural hair is used. The stylist who helps you should look for hair that suits you naturally and without having to alter it chemically to get a good match.

The Lack of a Consultation

Since this is a treatment that will have a profound effect on your appearance and confidence levels, you really want to be sure that you are comfortable with the whole process. This means that you will want to get a professional consultation with the stylist before any work is carried out.

This is when you find out everything that you need to know and get to ask any questions that are on your mind. On the other hand, with no consultation process you would be getting your hair extensions fitted without knowing anything about it, really.

An Application Process That Is Too Long or Short

At the consultation process you should be advised how long the application of your new hair extensions will take to carry out. For instance, if you go with the micro-ring extensions method then you should expect to spend something between 2 and 3 hours getting them fitted.

When you opt for Brazilian Knots extensions then the entire fitting process can take up to 5 hours from start to finish. If you are told that it will take a lot less time or a lot more time than these figures then this is probably a sign that the salon isn’t going to give you the sort of professional service that you need.

However, at Hair Definitions, as our stylists are so specialised and experienced, the services usually take a lot less time than average, and the results will be amazing.

Lack of Maintenance Details

Once your lovely new hair extensions are fitted it is important that you know how to maintain them. This means that you should expect your stylist to explain to you what to do once you leave the salon in order to keep your hair healthy and looking fantastic too.

As part of this, you can expect to be advised which products to use and how often to visit the salon for maintenance. Generally speaking, you should look to have little extra maintenance to carry out if you opt for Brazilian Knots, while other hair extension methods may involve heading back to get your hair cut every 4 to 6 weeks.

A Really Cheap Price

We all love to grab a bargain now and then but that doesn’t mean that your hair extensions treatment is something that you can afford to scrimp on. Indeed, this is one of those beauty treatments with which you won’t want to take a chance on the cheap and cheerful option.

Thankfully, getting new hair extensions fitted in a professional salon isn’t as expensive as you might think. When you consider how wonderful you will look and how your confidence levels will shoot through the roof then this clearly a terrific investment.

Hair Extensions Fitted Over Unsuitable Hair

If you know that you hair is thin and brittle or has some other problem then the time definitely isn’t right to go ahead and your hair extensions fitted. Sadly, some salons may be tempted to rush ahead and add your new extensions without sorting out these issues first of all.

The truth is that you need your hair to be in tip-top condition before you go ahead and get quality extensions fitted. This is why it is such a good idea to get something like the Kerastraight process carried out before you go any further.

By avoiding these problems and getting your extensions fitted in the best possible way you will have hair to be proud of and that you can enjoy without any worries. It is certainly worth making the effort to get the amazing end results that you crave.
