Hair stylists from Beauty Locks Hair Salon install keratin extensions starting from the bottom section and moving up. They take a small clump of your hair and place individual extensions that have the keratin glue bond already in place. A hairstylist will then use a special heat tool to secure the glue in the bond for a few seconds to ensure the best hold. Depending on your hair type 100-200 individual pieces may be installed into your hair. The extensions can stay in for approximately 3-6 months.
After your Keratin Bond extensions have been installed must not wash hair for 48 hours. Wash your hair only every 2-3 days to ensure that your extensions will hold. Keep conditioner and oil-based products away from the bonds to protect them from damage. Ask professional advise from Beauty Locks Hair Salon when selecting shampoo.
A spacial brush is recommended to help minimize damage and you should try to brush your hair at least twice a day. Do not place heated tools, such as flat irons, on the bonds. Heat is used to install the bonds, and heat can destroy the bonds. Avoid swimming in pools or the ocean with keratin bond extensions. The chlorine and salt can damage the bond.
To remove your keratin bond extensions, your hairstylist will use a keratin remover gel and tool. They will apply the keratin remover gel onto the bond alone, use the remover tool and squeeze the bond. Once the bond is loose, they will slide the extension off and continue the removal process throughout your hair. You can have your keratin bond extensions reinstalled the same day, but it is recommended to wait a month to give your hair a break. Always use professional help from Beauty Locks Hair Salon when removing keratin bond hair extensions.
