Not true! As a Hair Extension expert for nearly 20 years, many of my clients use hair extensions to add volume to their hair style. Fusion hair extensions made of keratin protein is a wonderful way to bulk up fine hair, especially a short to long bob hairstyle or a mid-length hairstyle. Fine and thinning hair benefit from micro fusion hair extensions; literally 10 strands can be added to small sections of hair and the illusion of more hair is created. Don't overlook hair extensions if your hair is not thick enough to pull off a shorter hairstyle.Read More
Heating tools such as flat irons and curl irons do the most damage to hair extensions and natural hair - throw them away. For decades women relied on simple techniques for hair styling such as pin curls, velcro rollers, roller sets, hair wraps and twisting hair to create glamorous looks. These are oh so perfect for the bride!
Throw away your flat irons which strip your hair cuticle leaving hair dry and void of shine. Below are simple techniques to get the same hairstyles and keep your hair and/or hair extensions healthy. Your hair is intended to last you a lifetime - so here it goes.
THE ROLLER SET will keep moisture in your hair and your hair will thank you for it. Especially if you have invested in hair extensions which can damage easier than your own hair.
1) For fine and less frizzy hair; set hair dry in velcro rollers. Velcro rollers will add volume to your hair, promote shine and smooth the hair.
2) For more dense hair textures and curly hair; wet set in hair rollers and set under an overhead dryer until the hair is 100% dry. Invest in an affordable overhead dryer that can be set on a table. I find a wet roller set under a dryer the best for newly relaxed hair. Avoid pulling and flat ironing after a hair relaxer.
