FAQ's

What are hair extensions?
This is adding hair to your own hair by means of fusion (strand by strand), weaving, braiding, bonding, seamless, clips and more. There are many variations to all of these techniques and stylists call these by different names. I will be educating you on the most popular terms. Extensions are usually applied by a stylist but many customers are doing this at home. Human hair extensions can be cut, curled and styled.

 

How are extensions applied?
Weaving - This is a process which you create a cornrow or track around the head and close to the scalp. Extension hair is sewn on the tracks. Your own hair lays over the tracks for a natural look.

 

Bonding - This is the easiest method. A bonding glue is applied onto the weft of the extension hair and then applied at the root of your hair. This is a temporary method.

 

This is my first time. What do I do?
Choose whether you want to apply them yourself or have a professional put them in. Choose the color that matches your own hair, a length, and curl pattern. There are 3 methods that can be done by your self, clip-on, bonding and seamless. This also depends on how skilled you are doing your own hair. You may want help from a friend. All other methods need a professional or someone who is skilled in this. You may also take your new hair to an extensionist to have hair added. The most important part of hair extensions is the right hair. By purchasing the hair yourself, you are in charge of this very important decision and will save money.


How much hair do I need?
Each person is different depending on how thick the hair is wanted, where it is being placed, head size, how it is being applied, styled or cut etc. We recommend at least 2 bundles if you are wearing up to 18”, anything longer we suggest 3 bundles. You are welcome to schedule a complimentary consultation for guidance.

 

Will extensions damage my hair?
Extensions should not damage your hair if properly cared for and maintained. You must be careful about brushing. If you have a tangle, hold the hair while you brush it especially if your hair is fragile. Have them redone about every 6 weeks.


Can I brush, curl blow dry and wash it?
Absolutely! This is your new hair. Curl it and have fun. Though you can wash every day you will find that your extensions hair will stay clean and curled for days. Wake up too late this morning? No problem. Your hair still looks great! This does not apply to all hair curl patterns. Deep wave and very curly textures you may not want to brush out or it can get frizzy. This hair lets air dry, use a wide tooth comb if you choose and scrunch. Please note hair will dry out sooner when using blow dryers and hot implements. Air drying is a great idea.

How do I wash them?
Wash the hair in one direction. From top to bottom. Avoid washing hair upside down in the sink. Use shampoos and conditioners that are for dry hair and add the most moisture. Wash hair right after swimming. When brushing your hair, start from the bottom and work your way up while holding the top part to keep it from shedding or stretching.

Should I choose straight or wavy hair?
Straight extensions are nice for straight styles that you do not wish to have much curl. Body wave extensions are so versatile because they can be worn straight.

Can I use hot tools on Hair Addict Extensions?
Yes. You can straighten, blow-dry, curl, and style your Hair Addict Luxury Extensions, just as you would your own hair. Our extensions offer great styling flexibility. Flatiron bone straight for a sleek and stylish look or curl with curling wand or curlers for more style and fullness.

Shampoo and condition hair regularly. When conditioning hair, brush through hair completely then rinse. When hair is wet, comb or brush through with a paddle brush. You can also finger comb the hair.
