Hair extensions

Hair extensions are harmless for healthy hair. In addition, to prevent damage to the hair ends, strengthening treatments should be performed 4 to 6 weeks before the application of extensions. This applies to all hair types.

After the application, only silicone-free products are allowed. This guarantees the preservation of the glue of the extensions and the quality of the real hair.

It is important to consider the length of the natural hair before considering hair extensions. The minimum length required is 8 to 10 cm. True experts can still try extensions for very short hair, starting at 5 cm.

Our natural hair extensions can be treated like real hair. It is possible to use a straightener or a curling iron to give your new hair a unique texture. However, the maximum temperature of the device is limited to 180°C.

  1. Choose a fairly gentle temperature, 150°C on average.

  2. Before starting the straightening, untangle the hair extensions with a brush made of boar’s hair.

  3. Treat only dry strands

  4. Smooth the strands one by one, avoiding touching the ends

  5. Use oils and serums.

Removing extensions requires specific know-how. It must be done by a professional. Return to the expert who applied your hair extensions in order to preserve the condition of your real hair. The session will be concluded with natural hair care.

The cost of hair extensions varies depending on a few characteristics, namely the length (8 to 28 inches), the quality (smooth, frizzy, wavy) and the nature of the extensions (human or synthetic). Natural fibers are the most expensive. It is also important to budget for cold or hot applications.

At Xquisite Hair Line, you will find extensions for every budget. Don’t hesitate to ask for a customized quote by writing to us on WhatsApp or by email at info@xquisitehairline.com

.

The hair extensions care is very similar to that of normal hair. For natural hair extensions, you can wash them once a week. Use nourishing and moisturizing masks to condition the extensions. These products also keep the hair shiny and soft.

Clip-in extensions should be removed at night to maintain their quality and aesthetics. However, for a closed extension, it is advisable to wear a scarf or sleep cap preferably in satin to sleep. This technique allows the head to be covered favorably to prevent the effects of friction.

Use a dedicated hair extension brush for regular hair brushing of your scalp. This type of brush has soft bristles for gentle brushing. You will have to start from the roots and work your way to the hair ends. Style your hair in braids before going to bed to avoid knots.

Real hair continues to grow even in the presence of hair extensions. The strands are not attached to the scalp, but directly to the real hair. The hair fibers remain intact as the hair growth remains at 1 cm per month.

A virgin hair is an extension taken from a human head. It refers to the hair extensions offered by beautiful Asian (Indian, Indonesian and Vietnamese) and Brazilian women. It has not been chemically treated or blown dry.

Virgin hair is natural hair of superior quality. Not only has it not undergone any transformation like natural hair, but it comes from young people and has been cared for over a long period of time for a top quality product.

Remy hair is first and foremost a 100% human hair without any mixing. It is therefore a natural hair that has received the “Remy Hair” quality label.

By choosing Remy hair extensions, the following features are available :

  1. Hair strands belonging to one person

  2. Hair strands with healthy, intact and well-aligned cuticles

  3. Reusable hair strands for multiple use.

Whether it is a cold, hot or clip-in extension, the application is not painful. Moreover, thanks to the addition of a considerable volume of hair, you may feel a heavier weight than usual on your head. What could be more normal ? It is therefore important to allow a little time to adjust to the new length and volume of your hair.

The application time depends on the volume of the hair desired. The more strands you need, the longer the process will take. Plan to spend an average of 3 to 5 hours in a hair salon.

An intact cuticle is soft and shiny hair. In other words, the outer layer of the hair is pleasant to look at and touch. All hair shafts are oriented in the same direction, making tangles and kinks impossible.

Hair extension professionals apply thoughtful techniques to provide impeccable results. The strands will be mixed with the real hair. However, it is important to bring the hair back to avoid the appearance of braids. For the finishing phase of the application, a root touch-up spray should be applied.

There are hair extensions for all hair types. At Xquisite Hair Line, you can find them. If you have curly hair, the same application techniques are also available : cold, hot and clip-in. However, you should plan particular care to keep your curls intact. For instance, you need to acquire a comb with large teeth. In addition, you should use a PH neutral shampoo.

For a hot extension, each strand is fixed with the help of heating clips at 0.5 to 1 cm from the roots of the real hair. The ends of the strands are equipped with keratin to discreetly hook into the mane. The operation requires the expertise of a professional and also patience.

Real hair can be less oxygenated after the application of keratin hair extensions. They can be weakened over time. It is possible to cope with the loss of natural hair. For this reason, it is recommended to use strengthening treatments before the hair extensions are applied. Then, the maximum duration of the keratin extension should not exceed 5 months.

Hair extensions imply a significant investment. After removing the strands, feel free to keep them. If your extensions are still of impeccable quality, especially the natural fiber ones, you can take them back for extensions later.

Hair extensions last 2 to 12 months. The life span of these extensions generally depends on the care given to them by their owner. The speed at which the real hair grows back is also important. On average, you should only keep them for about 4 to 6 months in order to preserve the health of the real hair.

The extensions are easy to handle. You can perform the same care as the original hair. All you need to do is to apply a moisturizing or conditioning product to keep the hair looking good. The use of a straightening or curling iron is even possible, as long as the temperature does not exceed 180°C.

The amount of hair needed for an extension depends on the desired volume. Natural fibers for a full head of hair usually range from 100 to 150 grams. For a full head of hair, you will need to purchase a minimum of 20 strands. You will need between 30 and 70 strands to gain length. If you want an intense hair, the number of useful strands can go up to 150. Regarding the length of the extensions, you will find mainly 3 strands to choose from: 30 cm, 50 cm and 70 cm.

It is possible to dye and/or bleach your extensions. However, it is advisable to opt for products with low oxidation. You will have to protect the extensions attachments with aluminum foil or cellophane.

The removal of hair extensions requires the assistance of a professional in order to preserve your natural hair. Also, if you only have a few strands, try removing them at home. For a hot fusion hair extension, apply keratin remover to the base of the strands. Then simply break the glue point with a flat clip.

For a 100% natural effect, choose strands of the same color as your real hair. Don’t hesitate to ask the professional who applies the extensions for advice. However, it is possible to proceed to a bleaching to unify the color of the natural hair and the extensions.

Clip-in Extension

The longevity of a clip-in extension depends on the type of fiber. Models made of synthetic hair remain flawless for an average of 30 days. For models that include real human hair, the durability can be up to 2 years.

To begin, you must remove the extensions from your head and then close all the clips. Pour mild shampoo into warm water to soak the extensions. Gently massage the hair, following the orientation of each strand. Avoid getting the bandages and clips wet.

After rinsing with clean water, vacuum up the moisture with a terry towel, always trying to keep the strands in order. Air drying is ideal.

The dyeing of clip-in hair extensions is possible for models made of natural hair. However, this operation can weaken the synthetic fiber hair additions. The damage is irreversible if you try to dye a synthetic extension, even a high quality one.

Only natural hair extensions can be kept on your head in a pool or at the beach. In addition, the use of a hair protection product is mandatory. After a bathing party, it is recommended to wash the hair addition. With a synthetic hair extension, it must be removed before jumping into the water.

Breaking a clip does not mean the very end of the use of a clip-in extension. Take out the substitute clips, usually available in the package that contained your extensions. Subsequently, simply sew on the new clip using a needle and thread of the same color as the one on the band.

Hair weave

Anyone with straight, wavy or frizzy hair can have a weave. This application concerns all women who wish to add volume or length to their hair. As braids or glues are the basis for extensions, the minimum length of real hair is 5 cm on average. At Xquisite Hair Line, you will find weaves suitable for all hair types.

Hair weave and hair extension are both hair extensions that can help to optimize the length and the volume of the hair. Weaving consists of braiding natural hair and then sewing artificial or human additions to it. For its part, the extension refers to the extension of hair glued to keratin or attached to clips.

Well cared for weaves can last up to 3 months. This requires regular care and the use of specific care products. You will need to remove the extensions at least after 1 month of installation.

Washing the weaves is part of the useful care to avoid the development of knots. Washing in cold water is suitable. You can use a mild shampoo or a conditioner. Don’t forget to apply a protective mask. After rinsing, air dry naturally.

Closure Weave

The Top Closure is the perfect finishing touch to a wig. This hair accessory is used to give a more natural look to the wig. It is therefore, a lace with human hair that must be placed on the base of the head’s forehead.

The Top Closure comes in 3 types:

  1. The Lace Closure covers the central part of the front of the head. It has one or more hair stripes. However, models without stripes are also available. It closes the part of the wig in front of the face with strands of about 10 cm. For women who like their hair pulled back.

  2. The Frontal Lace is the ideal hair accessory. It covers the front of the head from the middle of the forehead to both ears. The strips on each side measure 10 x 33 cm each.

  3. The Lace 360, as its name indicates, is fixed around the head. In other words, it follows the outline of the scalp.

Choose the size of the Closure according to the expected results. Consider the size of the area to be covered on your forehead. Several sizes available:

  •         4 x 4 inches (10cm),
  •         5 x 5 pouces (12cm),
  •         6 x 6 inches (15cm),
  •         7 x 7 inches (17cm)
  •         8 x 8 inches (20cm).

As for the Lace 360, there is only one standard size, showing 10cm of visible wick on the forehead and 5cm on the back of the neck.

Sans la colle spéciale, il est possible de fixer la closure Lace frontal à l’aide d’un fil, suivant le même procédé qu’à la pose d’un tissage. Autrement, faire recours au gel s’avère une option efficace. Ce produit s’avère plus facile à enlever.

Wig

The wig is suitable for all women, with or without hair. This solution is suitable for those who have a bald head, but also for those with thin or short hair. You do not need to shave your head or shorten your hair before wearing a wig.

Wigs are made of high quality materials to fit the scalp easily. Even for bald people with a delicate scalp, the prosthesis does not cause discomfort. Simply wear a cap before putting on the wig. If you need it, do not hesitate to choose the cap of Xquisite Hair Line.

The durability of a natural fiber wig generally varies between 6 and 12 months or more for virgin hair. As for a prosthesis made of artificial hair, the maximum durability is 6 months. The life span of the prosthesis can be extended by removing it from your head during bed rest, sports sessions and the use of heating appliances.

Wearing a wig to bed is perfectly possible if you want to keep a good-looking hair all night long. However, this option accelerates wear and tear. Rubbing against the pillow generates knots and deteriorates the quality of the fibers. Detangling will consume your time in the morning. Sleeping with the wig on is still acceptable, but only in exceptional cases, once or twice a week at most.

The frequency of washing a wig depends on its utilization. In order to preserve its quality, it is important to wash it only after an average of 10 uses. When washing a synthetic hairpiece, avoid immersing it in water. You will only have to pass a mixture of cold water and shampoo, then proceed with the rinsing. For a natural hair model, you will have to immerse it in warm water for about fifteen minutes with shampoo.

Dyeing is highly discouraged for wigs made of synthetic fibers. However, models with natural hair can be dyed. Before proceeding with the actual dyeing, a bleaching with a mixture of oxidizing cream volume 30 and a bleaching powder is essential. Then choose a vegetable-based dye for the strands.

Styling with a wide-tooth comb is both favorable for a synthetic and natural wig. You can also use a spiked brush.

It is good to remember that the artificial model does not withstand heat. Drying, straightening and curling with high-temperature appliances are not recommended. With a natural hair prosthesis, it is possible to straighten and/or curl at high temperatures.

Put on a bathing cap if you want to jump into the water with your wig. After your nautical activity, the wig must be washed. Keep in mind that hot water and chlorine could damage your synthetic hair prosthesis. It is therefore in your best interest to buy a cheap model for your pool parties and beach tours.

The price of a wig varies according to its quality, volume and length. Models made of synthetic hair are the most affordable, handmade wigs and those made of natural hair are the most expensive with a price range from 300 CHF to 1500 CHF. Visit the Xquisite Hair Line store to discover them.

  1. Round face: Enhance a round face with a wig that has medium-length, curly hair.

  2. Oval face : Choose a short and voluminous hairpiece.

Past the nape of the neck, just finish the braid. Repeat the same method for the left side of the hair.

African braids should be cleaned every 15 days. Prepare a mixture of mild shampoo and warm water. It is possible to add jojoba oil in order to enhance the brilliance of the braids.

Braid additions

Braiding is a protective solution for the hair. You can use different products to properly nourish and moisturize your hair. However, a protective treatment is recommended before braiding the hair. By using loose braids, you allow oxygen to pass through to the hair fibers.

Braided additions do not prevent hair growth. However, it is important to respect some conditions when braiding in order to obtain a regrowth of about 1 cm per month. Braids should not be too tight or too heavy. In addition, regular moisturizing of the hair is a must.

Every morning, spray a moisturizing spray all along the braids. You do not have to wet the braid additions. Don’t hesitate to find specific products for braids. Once a week, wash your hair to remove grease and dirt that clings to the scalp and braids.

Once you decide to remove the additions, you need to undo the braids. Start with the ends and work your way up to the hairline. Remove the strands with your fingers. When all the extensions are free, wash your real hair with shampoo and a repairing mask.
