Have you been wondering what actually happens at a removal appointment of hair extensions? We are on hand to talk you through the key steps and answer any frequently asked questions we get asked in the salon!
You are in safe hands at Vixen and Blush, our focus is on caring for your natural hair. We use the best quality hair extension from The London Hair Lab and all our stylists are very experienced hairdressers who specialise in hair extensions. We maintain your hair throughout having your extensions fitted and removed and ensure you have all the maintenance advice and follow up you need to care for your new hair extensions.
We naturally shed hair every day, it’s a natural process. As your hair extensions will have been fitted for a considerable amount of time, up to 3 months depending on the method the natural hair shedding will have been held in place by the bonds. At the removal you will see these hairs being released and will fall away. There is nothing to be alarmed about as your hair will look the same as it did prior to having hair extensions fitted.
Damage from hair extensions happens when an inexperienced or under qualified technician is involved or if the hair extensions have been left in for over the recommend wear time and not been cared for properly. The removal process is just as important as the fitting and its key to take the time to do it right. With the best professional products and qualified experienced hair extensionists damage shouldn’t be a problem.
There is no benefit to giving your hair a rest in between fittings. Its’ a surprise to many but hair extensions when applied properly can help your own hair to grow and become healthier.
If you have your hair extensions fitted by a hair extension professional, they will not damage your hair! You don’ t need to take breaks but if you feel like not wearing your extensions for a while you can keep your hair aside and have it refitted at a later date.
Micro Ring hair extensions are a very popular method in our central London salon. It’s a reusable method with a wear time of 3 months. Individual strands of hair are fitted to the client’s own hair using a small metal ring. No heat or glue is used to attach the strands or remove them. The metal ring is clamped closed to secure to new hair in place. To remove the Micro Rings, you simply open the metal micro ring to release the strand which can then be re fitted.
Tape extensions are a semi-permanent method that last for up to 6 weeks and then can be re-fitted. Our in house lab – The London Hair Lab have developed their own removal gel and spray to be used with tape extensions. This is sprayed onto the top of the tape and allows the stylists to slide the tape out leaving no residue. The tape extensions can then be re-taped and re fitted.
Micro Bonds are a permanent method with a wear time of 3 months, they are great method for those with finer hair types who aren’t suitable for other hair extension methods. Micro Bond extensions can’t be reused so new hair is needed each time.
