HOTHEADS HAIRWEAR Hair Extensions (information from www.hotheadshairwear.com)
Where does your hair come from?
Our hair is 100% cuticle on remy human hair usually from India. The extension itself is hand made in china with products from Asia, Europe and the US.
How long do the extensions last?
8 to 10 weeks varying on the customers hair growth and climate and they can be reapplied up to 3 times.
Is it Human Hair?
Our regular extensions are 100% remy human hair, meaning the cuticle is in tact and the hair is all placed facing the same direction. Benefits to this are no matting, tangling or returns.
Our fantasy color hair is a blend of high temperature synthetic and human hair.
Bright colors typically have drastic fading within one to two washing and this blend allows the colors to remain vibrant. This product can be curled, blown dry just like regular human hair products.
Can you color it?
There are 20 colors that can be blended to create up to 400 different shades. If you are not able to blend to create you desired shade you can deposit color. You can not lighten. In the process of applying color keep all color away from the adhesive tab and wait about 48 hours from the time you apply them. DO NOT LIGHTEN THE EXTENSIONS OR HAIRWEAR. To create a more platinum blonde you can apply a toner to the 613 or 25.
Do not try to darken the color more than 2 or 3 levels.
Can you iron, curl or blow the hair?
All of the above heat processes are okay. It is not advised that customers should sit under a dryer while wearing hotheads or that any of the above is isolated and concentrated to the tape tabs. Concentrated heat applied to the tab can make the adhesive tacky.
What products can be used in the hair?
We would always suggest that clients are working with our wetline. It is formulated specifically for second hair (hair not attached and getting nutrients from the root).
However some clients prefer to use their own products and that is not an issue as long as said products do not contain alcohol, oil or ethanol. Heavy conditioners are not to be applied at the scalp or tape tabs but rather from mid shaft to end.
Can roots be retouched while the extensions are in the hair?
Yes roots can be retouched again keeping in mind to stay away from the tape tabs and not to work with peroxide that is greater than 40 volume. Roots should always be done 24 to 48 hours prior to application and than in between extension service when there is ample growth to keep the color off of the tab.
