With the evolution of the hairdressing world, it has become easy to achieve long and voluminous hair. You no longer have to wait many years to enjoy great hair. You can instantly change your hairstyle using a hair extension made with synthetic or natural fibers. But beware ! For these accessories to have a natural effect, it will be necessary to be vigilant during their installation.

 

In this article we will see how to apply each type of hair extension for a 100% natural effect. We will cover the hot extension, cold extension, clip extension and braid extension. Let's start by adding hot extensions.

 

WARM UP YOUR EXTENSIONS:

1 . AVOID THE NECESSARY MATERIALS.

Before proceeding with the extension installation, it is essential to have good materials. You will need an extension iron intended for hot extension installation. With this special device, you will be able to take the necessary measures not to burn your hair. It will also preserve the quality of the keratin used to adhere the strands of hair.

It will also be important to acquire wick protectors. This tool will facilitate the installation of hair extensions. By using wick separators and a tail comb, it will be easier to proceed with the separations. In order not to crush the keratin-based glue, use finger guards. It should be noted that hair additions must have a ready-to-use keratin grip.

2. WHAT TO DO TO WARM UP THE EXTENSIONS?

In order for the extensions to stay in place, certain steps will have to be followed. It is necessary that :

Shampoo for specific extensions. This step will help degrease your hair. Don't be surprised if your hair gets a bit coarse. This will help the extensions hold securely in place.

Apply the extensions from the base of the neck (at the back of the head) and then continue upwards.

Gradually go up in layers and continue on the sides and the top.

Define your parting and fix the extensions in the right place. Make sure the hair extensions are subtly hidden. This will make them look natural.

Make separations every 1.5 cm.

Place the first extension in the center of the strip. Make sure that it is located 1 cm from the scalp.

COLD YOUR EXTENSIONS:

1. USEFUL ELEMENTS FOR LAYING.

To place the extensions cold, it will be necessary to have certain materials. You will need to have a few packs of natural strands, a brush, a tail comb, a crimping pliers, and a crab claw. These tools are required for cold installation with ready-to-install rings.

2. HOW TO INSTALL THESE ACCESSORIES?

To successfully apply your extensions cold, follow certain steps. You should :

Brush your human hair extension well.

Make a horizontal parting across the width of your head. To accomplish this step, use a tail comb.

Use the crab clip to tie up your hair and hold it in place.

Make sure that the first row is placed approximately 2 cm above your neck.

Place your bits and your crimping pliers in an easily accessible place. So you can easily catch it.

Use the tail comb to pick up small strands. These should match your wick strip. When this is done, place the transparent loop in your wick.

Make sure to slide the ring and move it towards your skull. Position it so that it is about an inch from the roots. Carefully slide the buckle so that it is completely removed. During the process, the wick should be placed gradually on its own in the ring. Avoid cutting the ends of the bit.

Use the crimping pliers to crush and flatten the metal ring. This step should be performed when the bit is positioned in the right place.

Check that the space between each bit is equal. It should be about 1 to 2 cm.

Adjust the length of the tips so that the extensions look like real hair.
