Tape Hair Extensions

Tape-In extensions are an amazing way of adding highlights, volume and length to your hair.

How Are Tape Extensions attached?

The Technician will section your hair keeping out all hair lines so that the hair remains undetectable, they take a thin slice of your hair and sandwich it between the two tape extensions a few mm away from your scalp, when they press down the tapes it bonds the two tape extensions together with a slice of your hair in between, holding the tapes in place.

Are Tape Extensions Re-Usable?

Tape-ins are reusable and need to be moved up every- weeks, which will take about 1 hour depending on how many tapes you have in.

What is The Longevity of Tape Extensions?

The longevity depends on what quality of hair you have chosen, the higher the grade of hair the longer the hair will last you. We believe in good maintenance and using the correct products recommended by our technicians to ensure you get the most out of your extensions. The average life span clients get out the Tape Extensions is 8months.

Colours and Lengths?

We offer a wide variety of colours, mixes and blends which you can choose off of our colour ring. The lengths range between 16inch to 24inch.

Deluxe Clip-Ins

Our Deluxe Clip-ins will instantly make you feel like a celebrity.

How Will I Take Care Of/Maintain My Deluxe Clip-In Extensions?

  • Before washing your Clip-Ins, brush them gently with a soft flexy bristle brush to help detangles any knots. Always start from the ends and work your way up.
  • Make sure your snappy clips are closed to avoid tangling!
  • Fill your basin up with warm water and add some of our Sulphate- Free Gentle Cleansing Shampoo. Immerse the Clip ins into the water gently swishing them DO NOT RUB HAIR!
  • Empty the soapy water, and rinse the hair with warm water. Gently pat the hair with a towel DO NOT RUB!
  • Clip ins do not receive natural oils like our own hair does therefor they need to be conditioned after every wash.
  • Using a wide tooth comb gently comb through some of our Sulphate-Free Gentle Moisturizing Conditioner. Leave for min and rinse with warm water.
  • Avoid washing on a regular basis and use one of our Leave-in Conditioning Sprays and Heat Protectors when styling to avoid splitting the hair.

Can I Swim With My Deluxe Clip-In Extensions?

We do not not recommended that you expose your Clip ins to chlorinated or salt water. If you do, we suggest you shampoo and condition them immediately after, as the chemicals will damage the hair and the quality will deteriorate.

Do not leave the chemicals in the hair as just as they would damage your own hair, they will damage your Clip Ins too.

Can I Sleep With My Deluxe Clip-In Extensions?

The clip ins must be removed before sleeping, some people where their clip in’s on a special night out while others wear them every day to work.

This illustrates the versatility of our type of hair Extension.

Any Tips ?

Treat your Clip in Extensions with as much care as you treat your own.

We recommend that you use the correct products recommended by our Technicians, to avoid static use our anti-static brushes and we suggest regular washing – IF you are using lots of styling products in your extensions.

Micro-Ring Extensions

MICRO RING EXTENSIONS

Our Micro Ring Extensions are a very cost-effective popular method, they are fitted and removed without the use of glue, heat, chemicals, or braids.

The rings are tiny, they are discreet and don’t cause discomfort or stress to your hair.

There is a layer of silicone inside the rings which acts as a cushion once the ring is closed and helps the extension stay in place.

Individual strands are the most versatile extensions on the market, they allow the Technician to have precise control over the placement of each strand, for the best result possible and the most natural movement of the hair.

Colours can be easily mixed to create subtly hi/low lites or striking colour slices.

Mini Tips

mini-tips-hair-extensions-durban

Mini Tips are our most popular fitting application. Similar to Micro Rings, they are fitted and removed without the use of glues, heat, chemicals, or braids.

The Mini Tips lay flatter than Micro Rings and create a tiny safe and very secure attachment which can be worn for up to 8weeks before maintenance.

Mini Tips are ideal for all hair types. They are extremely comfortable- you will forget you’re wearing them!

Ultra Tips

ultra-tips-extensions-durban

Ultra Tips extensions are a revolutionary new hair system that is re-usable without the need to ever re-tip the hair. Ultra Flat, Ultra-Light, Ultra Coverage.

Ultra Tips are not affected by heat or product damage and are completely re-usable item and time again. It lies completely flat with the natural flow of the hair, and is fitted in place using the Ultra Locks which is produced purposely for this extension type.

Our Ultra Tips are double drawn which means the hair is thick from root to tip. Lengths available are 16inch to 20inch.

Ultra Tips are ideal for great coverage as each bond lays on top of the client hair, and due to the fan shape of the bond, it disperses over the hair for fantastic coverage.

Memory Tip Extensions/ iTip

memory-tip-extensions-durban

Memory Tip Extensions are also known as shoelace tip, Flashpoint and coldfusion.

These extensions are applied by using a threader which pulls the clients hair through a very small cylinder. The Memory Extension is then inserted into the cylinder which is then compressed with special pliers. The compression holds the Extension in place.

You will only have to move up your Memory Tip extensions every 4-8weeks, and they last the clients an average of 8 months.

A wide variety of colours, mixes and blends are available.

Aftercare? – How Do I Take Care Of My Hair Extensions?

human-hair-south-africa

Correct aftercare is essential to maintain the quality of all of our Extensions and to help prolong their life. It is important to not only follow the correct advice, but to also use the correct and recommended products.

Containing the highest quality ingredients, our aftercare range has been specifically designed to be used with our hair extensions.

Failure to use the recommended products, or follow correct aftercare advice could cause damage to the hair extensions and decrease its life span.

We recommend that you wash your hair no more than 3times a week.

Before washing you should use your extension brush to detangle the hair from ends to roots. Wash the hair in an upright position using our HRS Sulphate-Free Gentle Cleansing Shampoo and our HRS Sulphate-Free Gentle Moisturizing Conditioner, in luke warm water, ensuring that you do not rub, massage or vigorously twist the hair.

When shampooing the hair, massage gently into the scalp and over bond areas. Ensure the conditioner is only applied on to the middle and ends of the hair, avoid putting products on the root area near the bonds, rinse thoroughly to avoid build-up.

After washing avoid rubbing or rolling the hair, instead gently squeeze out excess hair and pat with a towel.
When blow drying make sure you gently dry the root areas where the bonds are first to ensure they do not slip, once root area is dry continue drying as normal.

It is important to use the correct extension brush, to avoid any unnecessary pulling or tugging to your own hair which could cause damage.

Avoid going to sleep with wet hair, we suggest putting your hair into a loose ponytail or plait before bed to prevent any tangling or matting.

Some Advice…

We do not recommend colouring our hair extensions, however this can be done under professional supervision and is done entirely at the clients own risk.

Hair extensions are not suggested for use in chlorinated water/salt water, and hard water with a high mineral content as damage or discoloration can occur.

If swimming is a must, the extensions must be coated in a watered conditioner, avoiding the bonded areas and tied up securely to avoid chlorine contamination and tangling. We advise to wash thoroughly afterwards and to apply generous amounts of conditioner.

How To Determine How Many Extensions You Need in Your Hair…

Once women understand the different types applications of hair extensions and their many methods of application, they can then move on to determining how much hair they actually need to purchase.

As a general rule, the average head needs about 100 to 120 strands of hair extensions to complete the process: however different applications come packaged with different strand amounts.

Overall, the hair amount will depend on a number of things, such as the wearer’s natural hair features, as well as the type of hair she plans to purchase.

Hair Length? – Is My Hair Long Enough to Fit Extensions?

To achieve a natural integration between the extensions and your own hair, your own needs to be at least jaw line length.

Women should first consider their desired hair length when trying to assess how much hair to buy for extensions. If you are purchasing longer hair extensions, you will need more extensions to build up density compare to a person purchasing shorter extensions.

So…

What is the difference between our hair and other hair on the market?

What does “Remy” mean?

Why does my Hair/Unit feel so dry?

indian-hair

All of the hair we use at Hair Renewal Studio’s is 100% Remy Human Hair. It is guaranteed superb quality hair which will give you a truly stunning and long lasting result.

“100% Remy” means..

the hair cuticles of every single strand are intact and facing in the same direction,

the hair has been cut from a willing young donor and handled carefully to maintain its alignment throughout production.

The result is tangle-free, natural hair which will act just as your own hair should, it will stay in good condition for months, it will be fresh and bouncy after washing, you can style it with heat, colour it, even perm it.

Even better…. It will not matt or bunch up from normal day to day activities.

What is Non-Remy Hair?

Non-remy hair, can be referred to as “fallen hair”: it is essentially a waste product- the hair is collected mostly from villages in India where ladies brush their hair over large communal baskets, the hair that falls out will fall into the baskets, which are weighed and sold to hair brokers.

The roots and ends are mixed up, resulting in almost immediate tangling.

The hair feels dry, brittle, lots of split ends happening from the top of the hair down and lots of other issues.

This is how sellers are able to offer full head packs of 100% Human hair for as low as R200! Or big well-known Hair Replacement companies who have made a name for themselves trick clients and use every excuse as to why the hair no longer feels soft as did on the initial fitting.

The hair manufacturers will strip the cuticle from the hair and cover it with a silicone coating in an attempt to avoid these problems, the hair can look good for a couple of weeks but with every wash the hair will deteriorate rapidly as the silicone coating is washed off, leaving lifeless, dull, broken, lifeless hair.

So, if anyone tells you the hair is 100% Human hair that certainly does not mean it’s a good quality product!

Hair Renewal Studios, offer different hair types to suit different budgets, all of our hair types are 100% REMY Human…. Guaranteed!

All our first (initial) installations are free!
