Let’s look at some of the products we sell in more detail:
TAPE IN HAIR EXTENSIONS
Be bang on trend with our tape hair extensions. They really are the most recent trend in the hair extension world and they have become the most frequently requested extensions in hair salons across the globe. Our extensions are 100% Remy Human hair ranging from 8 inch, 12 inch, 15 inch, 17 inch, 21 inch, as well as 25 inches.
These extensions are sandwiched into your own hair. There are no harsh chemicals or tools involved and they are totally natural. What’s more, your hair does not get damaged with our removal with our secret S1 removal spray! You can reuse the hair again and again and each 1-hour installation lasts for up to 12 weeks or more - depending on how you look after and care for your hair.
CLIP IN HAIR EXTENSIONS
Clip in extensions is a great way of changing your look really quickly! With ease to match with more than 106 of our colours, you can treat yourself to longer hair, add highlights, add lowlights or add volume. Clip-in hair extensions come in various widths and can easily be placed into your hair without being obvious. Using these takes a matter of minutes and can be installed by yourself, manually.
With human hair extensions, you can get up to a 6-9 months out of them if you look after them carefully and use the recommended after care from seamless1.
HOW TO CHOOSE WHAT TYPE OF EXTENSIONS TO GO FOR?
Temporary extensions like clip in ones are great for a special occasion and for a quick change of look. These are most often used by people who want to enhance their own hair just for a weekend or even a special event like a wedding or birthday party. With clip in extension, they take minutes to put in and even less time to take out. Perfect for a seamless look switch up.
Permanent hair extensions are most often used by people who are not satisfied with their own hair or want something more. Perhaps they feel they need to add length, volume or both. Many people choose the micro ring method for their permanent hair extension solution. This is a good method because the hair can be re-used multiple times.
Keratin bond extensions are tiny strands of human hair. At the ‘root’ end, they have a keratin-based glue, which is attached to your own hair through heat or through ultrasonic waves. Since the extensions are put into your hair in rows, they will never be seen – even if you wear your hair up. They are attached about half an inch from your root. They take quite a while to put in (a few hours) but last up to 3 months. This type of extension needs care. If you brush or use hair straighteners on the glue, you’ll damage it. Even with the best care, you might find that some bonds do get loose over time. Sometimes you can lose your own hair when this type of hair extension is removed, which is something to consider.
If you have quite thin and fine hair, tape hair extensions are a good option for you. They’re a semi-permanent way of bulking out your hair. At Seamless1 we differentiate ourselves by offering exclusivity of invisible tape extensions specifically made for finer hair where the tape of the extensions cannot be seen by the naked eye.
TIPS FOR USING HAIR EXTENSIONS
- They must blend into your hair colour – if they don’t blend in perfectly, your hair extensions will be obvious and not give you the seamless look you desire. Hair extensions that are invisible look amazing!
- Buy the best quality hair you can afford – like with anything else, with hair extensions, you really do get what you pay for. If you have hair extensions that are made from human hair, you can treat it exactly like human hair. You can use flat irons, curling tongs and your usual shampoo and conditioner. Remy hair is actually considered to be the best quality human hair available on the market. This is because the hair cuticles are actually kept intact. This means that the hair is stored and processed unilaterally so the hair feels and acts like normal hair without matting and tangles. Non-remy hair often feels smooth and soft at first, but it is usually covered with silicone and this wears off with washing. Synthetic hair extensions are a great option if you want to keep costs down but you can’t style them like real hair and you can’t do things like swimming with them.
- Length – as well as different colours, hair extensions come in different lengths. Not only do you need to think about the entire length of the hair but you should also consider whether or not the hair is single drawn or double drawn. Double drawn hair means that the hair has gone through an additional process. The shorter hairs in the hair extension clip have been removed by hand. This creates a better overall effect but it is obviously more expensive.
- Texture – you can get hair extensions in lots of different texture – from poker straight to curly. Choose a texture that matches your natural hair texture. That way you won’t have to spend too much time making sure your extensions blend into your own hair.
WHAT ELSE DO YOU NEED TO KNOW?
When you have hair extensions, you will likely need different products. It’s best to use a shampoo that is free of sulphates and that won’t strip your hair. Over time, sulphates can cause split ends to form and they can also dry out your hair and make it look frizzy. Your conditioner should be really nourishing and moisturizing too. A leave-in conditioner is great for braids or curly extensions such as our very own seamless1 serum and S1 Hair extension shampoo and conditioners. We always recommend to our clients to use the best formulated products for seamless1 extensions in order to maintain their health as our products were formulated exclusively for seamless1 extensions.
Washing and drying
Hair extensions should be washed a few times a week but they shouldn’t be washed every day because they’ll become dried out. Washing frequency depends on how thick it is and how much product you use. Your hair should be completely dry before you go to bed to avoid tangles forming. It is always a good idea to use a heat protection product whenever you’re applying heat to your extensions.
