hairtalk extensions and hairtalk hairwear are made of human hair using the finest handmade techniques. The volume of hair on your head increases substantially after hair thickening and/or hair extensions, thus more intensive and time-consuming hair treatment is required. The additional weight can lead to a slight feeling of tension on the scalp during the first few days, this is normal and goes away after a short while. In order to enjoy your ‘new’ hair for as long as possible, we recommend that you stick to the following hair care instructions:
It is preferable that you don’t colour hairtalk extensions but they can be coloured with a 7 volume developer (no higher). Make sure to avoid the the bonds when colouring as it will weaken them.
hairtalk extensions are guarenteed for up to 6 months, provided our hairtalk Aftercare Products and Care instructions are followed.
Protect you hair as much as possible against salt and chlorine water, for example by rinsing your hair out thoroughly with tap water after swimming. Plait your hair in a braid when swimming.
Minerals and chemicals in the water can turn blonde highlights to a different colour. Lightening hair opens the hair cuticle, making it more porous. Especially when hair is more porous or too dry, it is more likely to absorb minerals and chemicals, Iron in particular can wreak havoc. Iron, which is found in high amounts in well water, attaches itself to hair, turning it reddish or brassy.
Preventative measures: To avoid this problem, we recommend intensive hair care by using sufficient hairtalk Balsam and hairtalk Repair Crème in order to prevent the hair from getting too dry.
Also a water softener reduces the amount of minerals and chemicals in tap water. Using distilled water can prevent and even remove iron deposits.
