Yes, you can touch roots up with hair extensions in, no problem as long as you don’t put dye on the bonds  as there will be few bonds in the T-section of the head. If you want to apply a dye to the entire head you can do so but you need to avoid the bonds as much as possible.

Why cant you bleach hair extensions ?

We also recommend only to darken the shade of your extensions only as bleaching can be damaging and lighter shades would have gone through lightening already also we do stock every shade and mixed highlighted shades in our inventory of extensions so there should be no need to bleach lighter as we have the lightest blondes to gray tones in stock.  This can also vary depending on hair range applied and shade.

Yes, with some methods you can re-use the hair applied again for a further 3 months such as the glue free heat free methods like nano rings and micro rings, it can also depend on the grade of hair selected some last for 1 3 month period others last a year and can be re-used several times. 

 How hair extensions are applied and care will determine if you can re-use.

 

methods like bonded hair extensions and cold fusion and tape first require processing called rebonding then it can be reused.

Ideally no, you should not be able to see the attachments of the hair extensions with any method. However if you have very bleached hair, thin or fine hair there is a possibility the bonds may show through occasionally, for example if it’s a windy day or if your hair becomes greasy. 

What hair extensions are best for fine and short hair ?

If you have very short hair or very thin & fine hair, opt for extensions we advise you to consult one of our technicians, you may see the bonds if they’re place close to the top of the head. Your consultant will advise you on these things during the initial consultation.
