Hair extensions are popular to add length and volume to an individual’s hair. Extensions allow individuals to have the hair they’ve always wanted but could never have. There are several ways that you can add extensions to your hair. However, it is important to properly prepare your hair for extensions prior to adding them, so that your hair is healthy, looks good and avoids unnecessary damage.

Decide which type of hair extension you want. Research the various types of hair extensions ways the hair is bonded to your hair.  If any of your friends have tried different methods of extensions, it’s good to discuss this with them and gather as much information.

Schedule a consultation. Discuss any questions you may have, Trending hair will get as close to your natural hair colour as possible, so you won’t have to change your hair colour for the extensions to match.

Prepare your hair prior to having your extensions added. Shampoo your hair on the morning of your fitting appointment, rinse thoroughly and avoid conditioners and styling gels.  The extensions will have a better bond if the hair is clean and free from any products.

Hair Dye: If you dye your hair a certain colour, do this the week before having your consultation, so it has settled and we can match the color as best as possible. Coloring your hair after the consultation might mean the extensions don’t match.

Blow dry your hair, if needed, on a low setting. Do not use a round brush or any other styling tools. Your hair should be in its most natural condition for the individual extensions to adhere to your hair as best as possible.

Knots on hair.  If your hair is easily tangled make sure to remove all knots prior to using a shampoo, and then again after shampooing. Knots can make the extension process more difficult.

Perming or straightening.  Do not perm or relax your hair after your consultation and before your extensions appointment. I judge how much hair to purchase and how to do the extensions based on the condition of the hair during the consultation.

Haircuts.  If you feel like your hair needs a trim just to remove split ends, make sure your hairdresser knows it’s just a trim on the very ends as you are due to have extensions fitted.
