Three types of extensions

- Weaving but are rather curly or frizzy hair.
Wicks of natural, synthetic or animal hair
The type of the more sedate extension is the natural human hair wick wick (synthetic is spoiling much and use of fur of some animals such as the goat being more marginal). The offering by certain cults or sold against money in disadvantaged regions (China, Eastern Europe), they are usually treated.
These hair today represent a great economic boon for those countries, reflecting in fact a sad reality : that of a large number of women living in poverty who, to survive, rely on this trade.

How to take care of hair extensions
In order not to damage his hair and for extensions to last longer, it is necessary to modify certain gestures of everyday life. Hair styling should be done with a soft bristle brush. The shampoo is head back so as not to pull the extensions. Similarly, too rich care such as masks, conditioners or oils are to be avoided in order not to favor their gliding. If needed, there is specific hair care that professionals recommend in the salon. The brushings are also to be proscribed, only the straightener is recommended for a net styling.
How long do hair extensions last
This varies from 2 to 5 months depending on the type of installation. For a long-lasting result of about 4-5 months bet on the extensions in hot, cold or adopt a weaving. For clips, however, count only two months of holding.

Our last customers
Hello, looking for a hairdresser to make a classic woman cut in the week, preferably on Friday or early afternoon. I wish, if possible, that the person travels home, that he is in a small perimeter of my home (less than five kilometers). I wish the most economical solution (no shampoo desired), please call me directly at the phone number left. I do not want to encumber myself with written documents or answers, I will only answer the phone. My last visit to the hairdresser is three months and a half, I wish a relatively short cut. Thank you in advance for your answers.
I seek your services for the price of a Brazilian smoothing. I have very long hair (they go down in the back) and are wavy. I checked with three professionals and the prices seem particularly high. This is why I contact you, in order to receive clear tariffs and choose the most interesting service. If possible, I would like to move there relatively early in the morning at the opening. No appointments in the afternoon or late morning. I leave my phone and my e-mail, you can contact me by these two biases in order to arrange an appointment.
I am looking for professional in the field of hair extension. The work is complete and must be done with care. The estimate must include the hairstyle and the extensions, thank you to make an estimate with these two expenses.

To make an appointment, here is my availability: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday from 17:00.
