WHY WE DON’T USE SYNTHETIC OR CHINESE HAIR

Synthetic Hair:

Hair extensions first came to England in the 1980’s, when synthetic hair was used. Synthetic hair has its limitations, in that it is heat sensitive, so cannot be styled with many heated appliances, such as GHDs. In addition, it is not ideal as it does not blend with your own hair naturally and will not last as long as human hair. Its texture and colour means it can look very fake and will look frizzy and unnatural very quickly.

Poor Quality Human Hair:

More recently, human hair has been used in hair the hair extension industry, and this is where things can become confusing for somebody considering having hair extensions. By definition, if hair is from a human head, its quality can vary hugely depending on the head it has come from. So just because hair is 100% human, it does not mean that it will be good quality.

The Problem With Chinese Hair:

The current market is flooded with Chinese hair and this is what many hair extension technicians who offer human hair extensions use, because it is readily available and is cheap. But it is a poor match for European hair, as it is too coarse. In order to make it appear finer it is sent to factories where it undergoes harsh chemical restructuring. Its cuticle is removed, it is dyed, and then it is coated with silicone to give it a shiny and healthy appearance. But it is far from the bouncy glossy hair it pretends to be, for after a few washes the silicone comes away, the colour fades and without its cuticles to keep it smooth, this hair quickly starts to matt, clump and tangle.

The unsuspecting client is left with dull, lacklustre and completely unmanageable hair. The silkiness has gone forever. At this point, many clients are so disappointed, they have their hair extensions removed. Many soldier on because of the money they have spent, fighting a continual battle with their hair extensions, which look unnatural and instead of enhancing their hairstyle, make it worse.

For these reasons I will never work with either synthetic or Chinese hair.


WE ONLY USE THE BEST QUALITY HAIR EXTENSIONS

I only ever use the very best quality and healthiest hair available, to give you soft, full, glossy hair with beautiful shine and colour.

This hair is called Remy hair

back of head

This hair is ethically sourced and carefully selected from parts of the world where women naturally have the most beautiful hair , to bring you the best European Remy and triple A grade Indian Temple hair extensions.

What makes this hair so special is that it is already naturally fine in texture and very soft, and so it does not need to undergo harsh chemical treatments to make it suitable for European hair. Unlike non-Remy hair extensions, or Chinese hair extensions, with Remy hair the cuticle is left intact, which keeps the hair extensions shiny and soft and tangle-free.

This hair is also Virgin hair, which means it is the healthiest hair available because, prior to being cut, it has never undergone any form of colouring or chemical processing. It can be left as Raw Hair in its original colour (often darker shades), or can be gently colour matched to your own hair.

Russian Hair Extensions

The majority of European clients are thrilled with European Remy or Indian Remy hair extensions, which are beautifully soft and silky. Occasionally, clients with extremely fine hair find Russian hair extensions a better match for the texture of their own hair. We can discuss which type of Remy hair extensions are right for you at your consultation.

My clients are always impressed at how beautiful, shiny, and soft their new hair is. My aim is for all of my client to feel like their new hair extensions are their own. It is incredible when you finally have the bouncy, full, silky hair you have always dreamed of and admired in magazines and on celebrities.

Hand blended custom-made hair extensions which you can treat like your own hair

During your consultation we will decide on the colour, length and style of your new hair extensions and then I will custom make each individual hair extension for you, hand blending colours to give you natural high and low lights, according to your own hair. It is this depth of colour which makes your hair come alive and look shiny, glossy and completely natural. You will be able to style your hair with GHDs, heated appliances and styling products and you will be able to treat your new hair extensions like they were your own hair.

It is amazing for me to see the difference having wonderful hair can make to my clients’ lives. Please contact me to arrange your personal consultation.
