Overview of advantages of the original hairtalk tape extensions system:
Why you should choose the original hairtalk tape extensions system…
Until recently hair extensions could only be applied using heat, ultrasound or metal which often caused damage to natural hair. However, hairtalk extensions work by using a unique taping technique, the so-called ‘sandwich method’ and extensions are incorporated in less than an hour. With the sandwich method, the natural hair is taped between two hairtalk extensions strands resulting in an invisible hair extension with flat connections that blends perfectly with your natural hair. The old-style extensions could also be painful when lying down. This is no longer an issue. After wearing the extensions for two to three months, they can be detached without any complications by certified hairdressers and a special spray, and reattached to the new hairline.
How long do the extensions last before retaping?
8 to 10 weeks varying on the client’s hair growth. This is recommended to eliminate matting, frizzing and tangling, and ensures the extension is always fresh and close to the scalp. They can be reapplied up to 3 times for a total of about 8-12 months of wear; this is recommended so that the extension bond remains seamless.
Where does the hair come from?
Our hair is 100% cuticle on Remy human hair, from India. The extension itself is hand made in China with products from Asia, Europe and the US.
Is it human hair?
hairtalk extensions are 100% Remy human hair, meaning the cuticle is intact and the hair is placed with the cuticle all facing the same direction. Benefits to this are no matting, tangling or short hair returns. Our fantasy color hair is a blend of temperature safe synthetic and human hair. Bright colors typically have drastic fading within one to two shampoos and this blend allows the colors to remain vibrant. This product can be ironed and blown out just like regular human hair products.
Can you iron, curl or blow-dry the hair?
All of the above heat processes are okay. Do not allow your clients to sit under a dryer while wearing hairtalk or to isolate any of the above heat processes to the adhesive bands. Concentrated heat applied to the bands can make the adhesive tacky. hairtalk Fantasy & Pastel colors are made from a temperature safe synthetic blend that can be styled on low heat settings.
Yes, roots can be retouched, keeping in mind to stay away from the adhesive bands. It is recommended that roots be done 24 to 48 hours prior to application. If roots need to be done between extension services and there is enough new growth to keep the color off of the bands, we suggest doing a partial retouch along with the hairline. Keep in mind, chemicals in the hair can compromise the adhesive bands.
How many packs does it take to do a full head?
On average, it should take 2-4 packs of hair, however, this is completely customizable depending on the desired look.
Can I swim, exercise or go in the sauna?
We recommend applying and leaving in hairtalk Nourish Plus prior to swimming. This nourishes the hair and allows it to absorb the moisture.
This prevents the hair from absorbing harmful elements, such as chlorine and minerals. Hair tangles when dirt and sweat build up so hair must be worn up or in a ponytail when exercising or relaxing in a sauna. Be sure to wash hair after working out, as well as brushing before and after exercising.
Exposing extensions to sunscreen may cause discoloration.
Can I make a ponytail or swept-up type hair-style with the hair extension?
In contrast to the bonding method, up-swept hair-styles or ponytails are possible with the hairtalk adhesion method without the contact points becoming visible. However, the hair-style should not be combed back too strictly, since the extensions are taped and trained downward in a falling direction. If the hair is loosely teased or pulled upward, or to the rear and/or put loosely in a ponytail or swept-up hair-style, then there is no problem with such hair-styles (see pictures in the “Gallery”: wedding or festive hair-styles).
How long can the hair extensions be used, and/or how often do the hairtalk strands need to be reattached to the roots?
The answer to that depends on hair growth and density. In general hairtalk extensions need to be reconnected by hairstylist to the hair roots every two to three months, since they “grow out” together with the natural hair.
How often can hairtalk be reused?
The extensions can be reused approx. two or three times depending upon the level of care. The more care, the longer the hair extension remains healthy, shiny and fit for use. The splice can be cleaned and renewed without limit again and again.
What do I have to consider regarding care and everyday life of hairtalk extensions?
Washing should take place in the shower and not head over – otherwise it is hard to untangle the hair afterwards. Furthermore, make sure that the care products do not contain oil or alcohol. The splicing tape contact points could separate unless specially formulated hairtalk extensions care products are used.
Why do my blond extensions suddenly appear reddish/greenish?
Minerals and chemicals in the water can change the colour of bleached hair. During the bleaching process, the hair layer is cracked open, making it more porous. Porous hair absorbs minerals and chemicals more easily than healthy hair. Iron can be particularly damaging here. The iron that is contained in conventional tap water in large quantities attaches itself to the porous spots and makes them appear reddish or greenish. A reddish discolouration in blond hair does not stem from a faulty product nor is it reason for a complaint, but rather a result of the increased content of minerals and iron in the water. To avoid such effects we recommend intensive care and sufficient use of hairtalk Balm and hairtalk Repair Cream.
