Aftercare Steps for Clip In Hair Extensions

Use the Correct Products – Hair extensions are essentially dead hair, so they require slightly different products than your natural hair. We recommend the Hair Extensions Aftercare Set by Hairaisers, as they are developed specifically for human hair extensions.

Keep Brushing to a Minimum – Excessive brushing strips the hair from the hair extension weave, as it does from your own natural hair with excessive brushing. The only difference being that the hair on your head grows back. We recommend no more than once or twice a day, brushing from the tip working your way up gripping your hair from the roots. This prevents any hair shedding from the hair weave itself.

Avoid Other Chemicals – We are not neccessarily only talking about hair products, but other chemicals such as Chlorine from swimming pools. It is important to maintain an awareness as some day to day activities may have an impact on your hair extensions, even too much time in the sun can react badly with hair extensions.

Washing Hair Extensions – Every time you wash your extensions, you are slowly washing off the protective silicone that covers the damaged cuticle layer. This causes the hair to tangle over time, so reducing the amount of times you wash your hair extensions actually prolongs their life.

Take Your Clip In Hair Extensions Out of an Evening – Clip in hair extension clips are prone to snapping if too much force is applied to them, also the hair itself can tangle during the night because of unnatural movements. If your hair extensions are applied by a more permanent method, it is advised to wear your hair up of a night before you go to sleep.

What and What Not To do with Clip In Hair Extensions

There are many factors when wearing clip in hair extensions, or even permanent hair extensions. Here are some recommendation for wearing clip in hair extensions.

It is strongly advised against to wear hair extensions while pregnant. The reason for this is because someone who is pregnant goes through some changes that may have an effect wearing hair extensions. The hair roots are not as strong as that of someone who is not going through the typical hormonal changes. This applies for those wearing permanent hair extensions, as the bonds are weakened by natural hair oils that are produced.

Do not use strong conditioners, aggressive hair conditioners and shampoos have an impact on hair extensions, more often than not it would be a negative impact. Only use hair extension shampoos and conditioners that are specifically designed for hair extensions.

There are many other factors to consider, but to list them all would be virtually impossible.

Hair Extensions – Client Satisfaction

Hair Extensions – Client Satisfaction

Client Satisfaction is top priority for any successful business, and this in more apparent with salons who use hair extensions. Clients who have hair extensions applied at a salon should receive a pleasant and satisfactory service. Even clients who purchase clip in hair extensions by a hair extensions store or a website should recieve the same service. We for example have this Blog, Email, Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus and much much more to keep us in contact with our customers.
Anyone in the Hair Extensions trade will tell you that the most important part of having hair extensions is the aftercare. The client must be provided with aftercare information and a quick brief on what and what not to do with hair extensions.

Client Satisfaction with Hair Extensions

First and foremost, fill out a hair extension consultation form with your client. The reason for this is to have on paper an agreement, so that if there is any dispute later, you and your client can refer back to the consultation to see what you both agreed to. An example of this is having a client who wants hair extensions during pregnancy, it is always advised against, but clients still may demand hair extensions regardless. If the client comes back a week later complaining that the hair extensions are shedding (which could be due to excessive natural oil produce) you have on paper proof that you both agreed to the risks.
Secondly, make sure the client has confidence in the hair extension technicians abilities. Displaying certificates and any quality assurance evidence would greatly help the client relax and enjoy the experience.
Asking on the odd occassion if the client is comfortable is a great way to ensure she is happy with the service so far, general politeness goes a long way with people, like drinking away from them, noone wants a gulp in their ear.
Once the service is over, provide important information about aftercare. Give contact information for the salon, whether its, phone, email or even a Twitter account.

We prefer hair extensions to be used to add volume as clip in hair extensions look their best when they are not too much longer than your natural hair. The recommended guide is not to go longer than twice the length of your natural hair, we say no longer than a third as keeping your hair looking natural with volume is best.
