Education is crucial for properly maintaining hair extensions. Once natural hair is cut from a donor’s head, it stops receiving much-needed nutrients that nourish and keeps the hair soft, shiny & tangle-free.
Preventing Hair Shedding:
Excessive shedding occurs when the wefts are cut. Vigorous brushing and combing can contribute to loosen hair from the weft area. That is why we stress the importance of sealing the wefts and not cutting through the wefts.
