Ok, so you are pretty serious about extensions, but you have no idea how to choose. You’ve spent hours on social media and Youtube trying to scour the right method for you.
When we incorporated hair extensions into our menu, it was at a time when consumers were all still relying on 1-2 methods. Our frustration hit its peak when we realized there were so little healthy solutions for guests. It was almost as if the world was saying “Hey lady, need longer hair? No problem, just sign HERE and agree to the terms of never being able to live without them again.” Women, and men, were wearing hair extensions that were too long, too heavy, wrong method that were causing more breakage than when they started. It was a never ending cycle that we knew had to change.
We made a promise to our guests day of 1 of business that meant we would never offer solutions that we knew were unhealthy. For example, we say NO to formaldehyde based straightening solutions. We know they look good, but we also know how bad these solutions are for your hair. Another example, we use only low and no ammonia hair color. Why? You guessed it. Its a better,healthier option for our guests. So of course our hair extension menu had to fall suite.
At this time we offer 3 different methods of hair extensions, and 6 different manufacturers. Keep reading to know the difference.
Imagine you’ve taken a few years off from the gym. You decide its time to go back. Aware of the fact that your less toned than you used to be, you hop up onto the pull up bars. As your’e hanging there, someone comes over and slaps some weights onto your ankles. Ok, maybe you still got this. Now imagine someone slaps more weights on. Eventually, you fall off.
That is EXACTLY what is happening to your hair while wearing hair extensions.
So here are our options and why:
We DONT offer Keratin fusion extensions. This includes: I-tips, U-tips, or any other Keratin fusion options.
Keratin fuses with keratin. SO when your hair extension bond is made of Keratin, it bonds to your hair’s natural Keratin. This is AWESOME, until its time for them to come off. An acetone solution is used to crack the bond for removal. Guess what else can happen? Your newly fused keratin chain is now cracked as well.
Ever remove a band aid from a hairy arm? The good news is that your Band aid probably stuck on long enough to do its job. Bad news is that it has to come off, which likely means so will the hair under the band aid.
So what other fusion options are available?
We LOVE fusion because they last! There is almost no room for slippage, or fall out because they are fused onto your hair. We scoured the industry to find a healthy alternative to bonded extensions. Thats where we found HAIRDREAMS hair extensions.
HairDreams are bonded extensions (the size of a match head) that use Nylon to sit on the hair, not IN the hair. A patented Nano Gun is used to apply the gun. This make a precise application point that appears neat and clean. More importantly, when its time for these babies to come off within 6 months, there is no damage (with proper home care.)
Now that we’ve covered FUSION extensions, lets chat about our most popular option.
TAPE IN HAIR EXTENSIONS are hands down the most popular solution. They are easy to wear, easy to be removed, and are as healthy as they come (with proper home care.) A one inch bond is taped to your hair line. A special type of tape is used to assure they sit where they are supposed to, and can come off when its time.
You can wear tape in hair extensions for up to 2 months in some cases. We supply 4 different brands of tape in hair to assure we can match you perfectly. A perfect match considers your color and texture.We also work with brands that supply long wear tape,this extends the life of tape in hair extensions on your hair line. The best part of the Luscious promise? Instead of relying on hash removal solutions, we steam the hair extensions out of your hair. Not only is this nourishing for your hair extensions, it also removes build up on the scalp and is a great way to refresh the hair before reapplying hair extensions.
All methods of hair extensions are available by length and weight. Length is reffering to how long the extenions will measure from end to end. Weight is referencing how thick each section is. Keeping an open mind to what will work for your natural hair is our priority.
