What type of hair extensions look the most natural?

In our opinion, micro rings and miniature micro rings offer the most natural look. They are virtually undetectable due to their small size. This helps them to blend seamlessly into your own hair. Each micro ring is individually attached to ensure proper fit,  comfort and discretion. 

If you have finer hair, we recommend miniature micro rings to achieve a seamless finish.

How long do hair extensions usually last?

At The Hair Alchemist, our micro rings and miniature micro ring extensions can last for up to 5 years with proper maintenance and aftercare. However, bear in mind that they cannot be worn for more than 2 months at a time. 

After 2 months, they need to be removed and refitted in order to prolong the life of your extensions and protect your natural hair. This maintenance process will also ensure that your finished look stays flawless, despite hair growth.

How do you wash your hair with extensions?

Washing your hair whilst wearing extensions is relatively simple, you just need to make a few small adjustments in order to properly look after them. 

We recommend washing your hair no more than 3 times per week, following the below steps:

  1. Detangle your hair whilst it’s still dry
  2. Wet your hair and massage shampoo into your scalp
  3. Smooth the shampoo into the lengths of your hair and extensions. Avoid using circular motions as this can cause tangling.
  4. Rinse with lukewarm water
  5. Carefully dry your hair. If using a hair dryer, use a moderate heat.

In terms of products, we recommend only using those that don’t contain any dangerous silicones, sulphates, or parabens, and those that do not cause slippage, matting, or drying. We recommend Neal and Wolf products.

Can you brush your hair with extensions?

You still need to brush your hair when wearing extensions, but need to take more care; pulling too hard or mistreating your extensions can result in your own hair being pulled out. 

We strongly recommend using a specialist extension brush which has soft nylon or boar bristles and a cushioned bristle base, allowing it to gently glide over the bonds. When wet, we recommend using a wide-tooth comb. 

When brushing, always support the bonds and ensure that no unnecessary stress is placed on the hair. Start from the bottom and work your way to the roots.
