Turn fine thin hair into thicker fuller hair in a few hours
MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL
When you look in the mirror, you pull your fine hair into a pony tail to see if it has thickened up. Then you hold up your phone to take a picture to send to your friend. You ask, does my hair look like it’s growing?
This is a typical question we get at Indulge Salon. More times than not we have seen hairstyles that can make our hair look fuller but not necessarily longer. It gets stuck at a certain length usually at the top of the shoulder with frayed ends or the crown separates like nursing home hair. The hairline may look thinner because of hair loss. The density of the hair may have decreased over the years leaving you with half the amount you had in college.
Turning fine hair into longer thicker hair with hair extensions is a solution we have been doing for years with happy results.
Being one of those clients with fine hair, I can relate to my hairline thinning out from stress, longer hair that had fallen out with sparseness in the crown made me feel self conscious. Even though I’ve been a professional hairstylist that has travelled all over the world learning hair extensions, I had the same problem my clients did. My was due to stress related issues that I knew would grow back however it did get stuck just below the shoulders but would NEVER get thick like I dreamed it would be.
As you can see in the images above Alex, had fine thin hair that was pre-lightened to a blonde beige color that looked amazing on her. Her hair extensions were colored to match giving it the rich dense look that made her look like a model. The AFTER image of installed machine weft hair extensions gave her the length she wanted.
The photo was taken with her camera in her bathroom light. Image was not touched up. We added 2 hand tied wefts that are thinner but still long and fuller looking to the crown area then we supported the sides that were baby fine and fragile with some tape ins that give instant thickness and fullness to fine hair.
Her after was stunning. She felt more confident with her look, she was able to finally have longer thicker hair with hair extensions that last up to two years with the proper home care then maintenanced in the salon every 8 – 10 weeks. What does maintenance look like?
We will remove all of the hair extensions to clean them, check them to make sure they are still in good condition. After coloring the natural hair with a demi permanent or pre-lightening the hair again, we process the colored hair then dry it and install the existing hair extensions for another 8 – 10 week cycle.
What happens to the natural hair growth? Surprisingly enough, the natural hair will start to grow with our Zenagen shampoo and serum used to help encourage hair growth. The hair will grow about 1/2″ per month on average. Now don’t be surprised if you have a growth spurt during seasons of the year. It has happened to all of us.
Do we customize the hair extensions? Yes, we have to do this for every single person that has a consultation with us. We will talk about hair colors that are best for your skin type, we will discuss length, thickness, maintenance in order to ensure you understand what you are going to experience with your new hair extensions. Because we have so many years of experience with tape ins, K-tips, fusion, machine weft, hand tied wefts, J-tied wefts and lastly hybrid brands we will try to determine which is best for your scalp to encourage hair growth.
Our goal is to have you grow your own hair if you can with the right home products such as shampoo and conditioner. Using the correct brushes make a huge difference in helping the shedding hair to be removed daily. It may sound complicated however it is way easier to manage hair extensions hair than your own hair.
Do I shampoo every day? You don’t have to. I personally enjoy shampooing my hair and conditioning it. Most of our hair extension clients will only shampoo and condition every other day because they like that they don’t have to. Sometimes, they will come in to let us shampoo their hair for them. They call it “hair day.”
If I have gray hair and need my roots touched up, do I have to wait 8 – 10 weeks? No, we will schedule you out to make sure that we touch up the roots in 4 weeks or less then stay on a color schedule. Then we will schedule your hair extension maintenance every 8-10 weeks along with your coloring touch up at that point.
If you are interested in a consultation, contact us at 717-846-4424 to schedule some tine. We always love to see what your hair looks like currently then send us a photo of what you want your hair to look like once you have your extensions installed. We have to design the color scheme, the haircut and the type of hair extensions to make your hair a reality.
