I apply these extensions without heat or chemicals. I use a loop tool to pull the clients hair through I-link cylinders. The extension is then inserted into the I-Link.
These extensions are designed to create volume, length and color accent. Each strip is reusable and can be worn for 6-8 weeks then adjusted during the next appointment to be worn again!

More About Extensions
An extension is a hair addition secured to the base of the clients natural hair to add length, volume, texture or color. The fastest way to tell if the hair is human or synthetic is to burn it with a match. Human hair will burn slowly, giving off a distinctive odor. A strand of synthetic fiber will either ball up or melt. Kanekalon Synthetic Hair is very popular for most braided extensions styles. Human Hair can be used but it will bring the total cost of the hair up by at least $50 - $200 on average so please keep that in mind when you select what works best for you!
A weft is a long strip of human or artificial hair woven by hand or machine onto a thread.
