hair extensions are the best quality and type of extensions you can
choose. Opting for clip in hair extensions is also the least damaging way of
adding extra inches or oomph to your own hair!!
hair extensions are great for adding length, volume and thickness as
they act just like your own hair. You can use heat tools on them, you
can dye them, wash them and you can use them in up-doís as well as
Unlike our own hair though, human
hair extensions donít contain the natural supply of oils so they will
require a little more care than your own hair and more importantly some
TLC! Here at Headkandy we always recommend
that you use a good quality heat protection product on your human hair
extensions before styling Ö just as with our own hair, heat styling can
also be damaging to hair extensions. Itís also best to avoid holding the
tools on the extensions as long as you would with your own hair as the
extensions will react to the heat quickly. Always read the labels on the
products you use as those containing alcohol could dry out your human
hair extensions can also be washed to remove a build up of product on
them. This can reinvigorate your extensions and can give them a new
lease of life, but be sure not to do this too soon. There is a myth that
extensions need to be washed before you wear them, but this isnít the
case!! Human hair extensions can be fitted to wear as soon as you
receive them. We only recommend that you wash your HeadKandy extensions every 6
weeks and then only if you really need to! The
longer you can leave this the better as washing too often or using the
wrong products can affect the quality of the hair. Always use a good
quality moisturising shampoo and steer well clear of shampoos for
coloured hair! For conditioner itís usually best to choose a deep
conditioning treatment/repair treatment. In the Headkandy Care Guide
there are step by step instructions for washing and drying your human
hair extensions, be sure to follow these closely!
hair extensions can be dyed to match your hair if you are between
shades or struggling to match your hair. If you canít find an exact
match then it is usually best to choose a shade a little lighter than
what you think your hair is as HeadKandy hair extensions can be dyed up
to 2 shades darker, but we donít recommend lightening or bleaching them.
You can add a toner or a toning shampoo to the extensions if they are
the wrong tone for you. The most important thing to remember if you do
plan to dye your human hair extensions is to conduct a strand test
first and follow the HK care guide! Even if you are taking them to a salon to be dyed the strand test should be
conducted!! Many stylists can offer help with dying your extensions if
you are unsure of doing it yourself.
hair extensions are perfect for adding extra volume to your up-doís.
The best tip for using your hair extensions this way is to fit them
close to the base of your Ďdo, this will ensure that the clips are cleverly hidden
away by the hair itself ... you may find that you wonít need all the
wefts for this! If you are wearing your hair down then always
fit your human hair extensions before styling... this will ensure that
your hair blends into the extensions for a gorgeous, flawless look.
