Do you ever wish that your hair was longer or fuller? Does your hair get to a certain length and seems as if it stops growing? If so, hair extensions could be the answer! Today, a girl needs more than just volumizing products and a teasing comb to get fuller hair! Wearing extensions isn't just for movie stars, they're for everyday gals that want to add volume or length. You can get beautiful highlights, added body or go for the glamour and have long luxurious hair-all in a few hours!

tape-in

Tape-In extensions are applied by "sandwiching" your hair in-between two thin wefts of extensions using surgical grade tape. The placement and sectioning of each weft is precise. They can be worn for up to 6 wks. and are reusable for up to 6 months. They are custom ordered and color-matched for a seamless blend. 15-20 sandwiches takes about 1 hr.



The first question we hear in regards to extensions is "Do they damage your hair?" If done properly, the answer is no. Unfortunately, many stylists are not properly trained in installing, removing and re-using extensions. 

Sectioning, weight distribution and tension are all factors that could turn a hair dream into a nightmare if they are not detailed correctly.

These are all examples of how extensions should look when grown out, and when done correctly!

As seen in the image above, the 12-week grow-out phase does not cause any damage.

get a consultation.

  It is important for your stylist to understand your lifestyle and expectations from extensions. It is also important for you to ask any questions regarding the hair, the method and caring for your extensions. During your consultation, you and your extensionist will determine which method is right for you, how long your extensions can be worn and any other questions or concerns you may have.


what about the hair?

One of the top mistakes women make when it comes to extensions is getting cheap hair. Don't do it! The hair you want  should be 100% Remy Human Hair, which is the only hair Milvali uses. With so many methods and hair suppliers in the industry today, it's hard to know and trust all of the information out there. We can assure you that the hair we use has gone through quality control measures and is designed to be worn again and again for up to a year, which makes it a great investment. 


do your research.

When researching a salon, make sure that the extensionist is   experienced. At Milvali, our extensionists know what it's like to do two sets of extensions per day, as opposed to two sets of extensions per month. Our reputation for extensions is outstanding. Our extension stylists have many years of experience in applying, color matching, blending, cutting and styling extensions. Every Milvali extensionist goes through an extensive in-house training program to ensure consistency.


Important!!!

As with any method, ask to see actual photos of the stylists work along with before and after pictures. The weight distribution must be equal (putting in as much of your own hair as the extension that it's holding) and sectioning must be precise to avoid damage to your own hair. Anyone can tell you they know how to do extensions-make them show you!


Extension Aftercare...

Wearing extensions should never be painful. If you are feeling pain that does not subside after 1 day, please call your salon/stylist ASAP. They may feel uncomfortable during the first week, but should not be painful.

 

Wearing your hair in a low, loose ponytail while you sleep alleviates the discomfort.

No high, tight ponytails for the first 2 weeks.

Make sure you hold your hair at the roots when brushing your extensions. Do not brush through a tangle, pull it apart with your fingers and brush it out starting at the ends and working your way up.

Make sure you have an extension brush with a mix of soft and hard bristles. No vent brushes!

Use a leave-in conditioner to protect wet extensions while combing them out.

Thoroughly shampoo your scalp and thoroughly rinse out all conditioner.

If your extensions start to connect to each other during the grow-out phase (which is common) gently separate them. If they turned into a dread-loc, which can happen-please call your salon/stylist ASAP. There is no damage to your hair if this occurs, it’s just uncomfortable and makes styling harder.

If you lose an extension, save it. We will apply it when you come in for your next appointment.

If you lose a lot (more than 10) during your first month, come in and we will re-apply them. When you lose an extension it is normal to see hairs attached to it with the follicle still on the hairs. This is normal. When you naturally shed hair, it sheds with the cuticle still attached.

Blow dry your extensions on low or medium heat. Do not blow them out on hot!

Use a heat protector before all blow-drying and iron work.

During removal, you will see a lot of your own hair that has shed during the past weeks of wearing your extensions-this is normal! It is natural shedding that has no place to go because it is “trapped" in the extension.

Follow these rules and you will enjoy wearing your extensions and have them look healthy for months to come.
