Here are a couple of tips for a safe and beautiful service.
Prep With Heat Protectant
Start by prepping the hair with a heat protectant spray, like heat treat and shine, to shield from damage and to protect the color from fading but be sure to keep the product away from the hair extension attachment.
You’ll first want to dry the hair at the scalp and around the extension attachment. You can press the panels together as you do this to solidify the extension bond.
Use a Round Brush
Once the panels are dry you can proceed to round brush or paddle brush as you normally would. Feel free to use any volumizing or styling products you would like. Working in sections blow dry both the extensions and your client’s natural hair together for the most blended appearance.
Use Heat Tools as Needed
Once your client’s hair is completely dry she’s ready to leave as is, or you can continue to style with a heat tool like a flat iron or curling iron.
