MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT : POLYWAX™ HAIR EXTENSIONS
Q: What is it?
A: A method of attaching human hair to your own to thicken and/or lengthen it.
spacer
Q: How is it done?
A: We take strands of human hair; new hair is fused ½ inch from your scalp in the direction in which your hair grows.
spacer
Q: Will it harm my own hair?
A: It is important to be aware that a person whose hair normally does not grow full and long experiences greater hair loss because of the shorter growth span produced by each hair follicle. With your new extensions it may appear that you have more than normal hair loss. NOT true. The natural hair cycle does not change—only your awareness.
spacer
Q: How long does it take?
A: It takes 2 to 3 hours for full head.
spacer
Q: How long does it last?
A: Usually up to 3 months, if properly maintained. All attempts must be made to keep the hair as little stress on strands as possible.
spacer
Q: Are there any special time requirements?
A: A half-hour consultation is mandatory to discuss color, length, thickness and care. During the consultation you will be advised as to the approximate time it will take for the application.
spacer
Q: Whose hair is added to mine?
A: European or Indonesian hair. We purchase shades, lengths and amounts to achieve the desired results. We do not use synthetic hair.
spacer
Q: How much does the application cost?
A: The price range for Polywax™ Extensions start at $275.00 up to $700.00; Spiral weave starts at $350.00 up to $700.00; Shaftees start at $650.00 up to $1,200.00; and Hair Systems are $1,500.00. or more depending on the length of the human hair.
spacer
Q: How much hair does it take?
A: We use approximately ½ lb. on a full head to achieve a natural fullness. If you like your hair extra full, extra charges apply. To achieve a natural look and flexibility of style a line of your own hair must be left in between the attachments.
spacer
spacer
Q: What can I do during the application?
A: The application is tedious for you; therefore, to avoid boredom, bring a book, magazine, lunch, beverages, etc.
spacer
Q: Do I need any special equipment?
A: A looped bristle brush works best for combing or styling, it avoids the chance of a comb or brush getting under the attachment near the scalp.
spacer
Q: What is the best way to brush the hair?
A: Hold the hair together at roots and brush from there out to avoid pulling out the extensions. DO NOT START AT ROOTS AND PULL THROUGH HARSHLY.
spacer
Q: What about shampooing and conditioning?
A: We highly recommend ACV shampoo & ACV rinse formulas they adjust the PH of hair and scalp adding beautiful healthy shine. During your application, you will be informed to the appropriate products you should use.
spacer
Q: How about hair styling aids such as Hair Spray, Mousse or Gels?
A: Use them as needed.
spacer
Q: Can my hair be permed and /or colored?
A: If you would like wavy hair or hair with more curls, it can be ordered. Hair is purchased in three textures: Straight, wavy or curly. If your hair is colored it can be retouched with the exception of a cap-style frosting. Foil frosting can be done. If you wish to have a perm or color we recommend that it be done prior to your hair fusion. Relaxers and colors may be applied to your own hair only.
spacer
Q: Can I use irons and hot rollers?
A: Yes. They will not harm the hair as long as you avoid the Polywax™ Attachments.
spacer
Q: Can I “tease” my hair?
A: It is best not to tease. However, light brushing can be done in the back of your hair. Don’t use excessive force when brushing your hair.
spacer
Q: Can I wear my hair up?
A: Definitely. The extensions are applied a half-inch to an inch away from the hairline or part area so the attachment area is no visible.
spacer
Q: How should hair be treated at night or when exercising, etc.?
A: It is best to avoid tangles. If your hair is long put it in a loose ponytail or braid.
spacer
Q: Can one go swimming in a chlorine pool with Polywax™ extensions?
A: Yes. But since the attached hair is human hair, it is sensitive to all chemicals. Hair should be braided. After swimming, a conditioner or cream rinse should be used immediately.
spacer
Q: What do I do if some of the hair comes out?
A: In the event an extension does become detached it can be reapplied during your next visit. We recommend reapplication be done when you have a minimum of ten or more pieces.
spacer
Q: Can the extensions be removed?
A: We will remove them when it is time for a new application. Do not pull them out. We use a special removal formula.
spacer
Q: What will my hair be like after removal?
A: In far better condition. Your hair has not been abused or ratted; therefore, it is less damaged than before.
spacer
Q: In what styles can my hair be cut?
A: Unlimited.
spacer
Q: Can I change the color of the hair extensions?
A: No. You have dead human hair, which has been previously bleached, colored or permed among other strong chemicals; the use of more chemicals will deteriorate the quality of the hair extensions.
spacer

spacer

A: Of course and even yourself will forget is not your hair, from feeling so comfortable.

spacer
MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT : HAIR SYSTEMS
Q: Can I sleep, swim, or shower with the hair system on?
A: YES, but please avoid sun exposure which will fade the color of the human hair.
spacer
Q: How long a Hair system last?
A: The hair system last from 9 to 12 months depending on the quality of the human hair ( if in order to match it to your own the hair needs to be extra or double processed) then taking into consideration that we are working with human hair, it will last less than expected, but if you order hair without curls or waves and just a basic hair color, then the life of the hair will be longer, also is important to use a special shampoo and conditioner to keep the hair natural shine.
spacer
