HAIR EXTENSIONS BY AMANDA

uses several different methods of installing hair extensions.  Below is a brief description of each individual method.  At consultation stage you will be advised which will be the most suitable method for your hair type.

 

The Shrink-Link Method

The Shrink-Link hair extension method uses tiny little plastic tubes which have a very light coating of keratin on the inside.  The Shrink-Link is threaded onto your natural hair, a pre-bonded strand of extension hair is then placed inside the tube along with your natural hair and then using a special heat clamp the Shrink-Link is then heat activated and shrinks around them both.  This provides a water-tight seal and is a very kind method of hair extensions due to there being only a tiny amount of glue inside the Shrink-Link thus no glue is actually fusing with your natural hair.  The glue is just there to prevent slippage.  The Shrink-Link hair extension method is also very hardwearing, they last the full 12 weeks with little or no maintenance required, the plastic does not break down and there is little shedding due to the hair extension strand being pre-bonded.  The hair with this method can be reused.

 

The Fusion Method

The Fusion hair extension method is applied using special keratin glue.  The keratin glue is placed on the end of the hair extension strand.  This is then placed under your natural hair strand.  Whilst the keratin glue is still warm, the two strands are rolled and fused together providing a tight seal.  The Fusion hair extension method lasts approximately 12 weeks with maintenance being required.  The hair with this method can partially be reused.

 

The Extendshell Method

The Extendshell hair extension method uses tiny little aluminium tubes which have absolutely no glue at all.  The Extendshell is threaded onto your natural hair, a pre-bonded strand of extension hair is then placed inside the tube along with your natural hair and then using a special clamp the Extendshell is then clamped flat.  This provides a water-tight seal and is a very kind method of hair extensions due to there being no glue involved at all.  The Extendshell hair extension method lasts approximately 12 weeks with maintenance being required due to possible slippage.  There is little shedding due to the hair extension strand being pre-bonded.  The hair with this method can be reused.

 

The LA Weave Method

The LA Weave Method is a wefted hair extension method. A track is made in your natural hair using micro-rings. The wefted hair extension hair is then neatly sewn onto this track with weaving thread providing a strong hold. No glue is used with this method. This method normally lasts 8 to 10 weeks. The hair with this method can be reused. This method is best suited to people with thicker hair.
