What should I know about Hair Extensions?

− Hair extensions are processed hair treated with chemicals (chemicals used in processing hair
extensions available upon request depending on the supplier) and can be made of real or
synthetic hair.
− In rare circumstances, installing hair extensions can cause traction alopecia — hair loss and
balding from the extra weight on the scalp hair.
− Extensions may cause hair tangling, matting, loss of shine, itchiness, and pain. In rare cases,
extensions may cause contact dermatitis, life-threatening allergic reactions from sensitivity to
glues, rubbers, or other chemicals used for extension application, maintenance or removal.
Please contact your stylist immediately if you are experiencing scalp irritation.
− If the hair extensions are maintained regularly and taken care of as recommended by
− your stylist, any negative effects of hair extensions on your scalp and hair are minimized.
− There are several hair extension application types such as clip-in, tape-in, sew-in and fusion.
Each type of extensions has its own pros, cons, longevity, and compatibility with the nature of
your scalp. Consult your stylist for the application method that will work best for your needs and
hair type.

Extension Types and installation Methods

1. Tape-In Hair Extensions - Tape-in hair extensions are exactly what they sound like - extensions
that get taped (or glued into the hair). They are aligned with the roots and then the glue is
heated to adhere the extension to the hair. These extensions also need to be removed by a
stylist to minimize damage to the hair. If they are cared for, the extensions can be reinstalled at
the root after they are removed. Adhesive based methods such as tape-ins are not ideal for
anyone who likes to air dry or needs a lot of moisture for their hair/scalp. These factors mean
the adhesive will break down faster, resulting in extensions slipping and/or falling out.
2. Beaded Rows/Sew-In - Beaded row extensions simply mean we create a track using silicone
lined beads going around your head connecting to small sections of hair. Hand-tied wefts of
hair are then sewn onto that track, leaving you with seamless extensions. There are minimal
points of contact, so when installed correctly, they lay completely flat and are undetectable.
3. Microbeads- Microbead (or i-Tips) extensions use tiny beads and pliers to clamp the extensions
in place. These beads are usually matched to your hair color, making it easy to blend them in
seamlessly with your natural strands.
4. Fusion Bonds - Fusion bonds are special keratin tips that are applied directly over your natural
hair. This process uses a heated clamp to melt the glue and keep the extension in place. Suitable
for any hair type and Increases look and feel of density in thinning hair

What should I expect from my extensions?

Hair extensions can be a great way to add length, volume, and versatility to your hairstyle. However, if it’s your first time wearing them, it can be hard to know what’s normal and what’s not. In this post, we’ll explore some common concerns you may have with your new extensions and give you tips on how to manage them.

An itchy scalp can be caused by a lot of things, and hair extensions can be one of them. It’s normal to 
experience mild itching if your extensions are freshly installed and you have a sensitive scalp. This can be 
because some small hairs may get into the section where your extensions are being installed (known as 
cross-hairs). However, if the itching lingers or is intense, please let your salon know right away so they 
can check your extensions. You may also experience itchiness if your extensions are overdue for a 
reinstallation. This is because if your natural hair grows out too much, it can cause uneven pressure on 
the section where your extensions were applied, causing you to feel a sensation much like itching. If 
you’re suddenly experiencing itching, it may be time to schedule your next reinstallation!
Discomfort While Sleeping
This is another common concern for first-time extension wearers. When your head is placed against a 
pillow, you may feel the beads or attachment points of your extensions for the first time as they press 
against your scalp. For the vast majority of women, this is only a very mild sensation and goes away 
within a night or two. However, if the discomfort persists, you may want to try sleeping on a satin 
pillowcase or using a silk scarf to protect your extensions while you sleep.

Intense Pain or Blistering
This is definitely NOT normal and you should contact your salon immediately if you experience this. This 
kind of pain can be caused by improper installation, the wrong method or too much weight on your 
natural hair from extensions, or in rare cases, an extremely sensitive scalp. Here at Crown, we pride 
ourselves on being able to recommend the best method for you, and our extension specialists are fully 
certified and trained to give you the best service and make your extension experience as comfortable as 

Aside from the concerns mentioned above, another issue you may encounter with your extensions is 
dryness or brassiness. This can be caused by hard water and chlorine in your shower. One way to 
combat this is by using a shower filter. This will remove the impurities in the water, leaving your 
extensions and natural hair softer and more vibrant.

In conclusion, wearing hair extensions for the first time can be a bit daunting, but with the right 
knowledge and care, you can enjoy your new look with confidence. Remember to keep in touch with 
your salon and ask any questions you may have. They’re there to help you make the most of your 
extensions and ensure that you have a positive experience.

Aftercare instructions and Maintenance 
− Do not shampoo for 24 hours. Always wash your hair with your head up or back like in a shower 
and not tilted forward. Never put conditioner on your bonds, keep 3” away from scalp. Never 
dry with a scrubbing action, instead wrap with a towel to absorb water. Always dry bonds to 
prevent breakdown. Only use products recommended for extensions, some products will break 
down the bonds and alter the longevity of your extensions. 
− It is very important to be gentle with your hair extensions. They are attached to small amounts 
of your own hair. While hair extensions themselves will not harm your hair, rough handling of 
them will pull your hair and may cause damage.

− Brush extensions 2-3 times a day, or the amount recommended by your stylist, with the 
recommended hair extension brush. Start in the nape and work your way up. Always pull 
extensions into a covered hair tie or braid while sleeping to prevent tangling and pulling. Never 
go to bed with wet hair. If you sleep restlessly or have very fine hair in the front it is 
recommended that you sleep with a soft head band on. This protects your delicate front hair. It 
is advisable to loosely braid or pony tail the hair when sleeping.
− Make a follow-up appointment for 4-6 weeks after your initial service. Notify stylist/salon 
immediately if you have any problems such as tangling or excessive loss of extension hair.
− Curling irons, flat irons and hot rollers may be used, but must be kept an adequate distance 
from the bonds, beads, and Tapes.
− Activities taking place in a constant, damp environment such as aerobics, steam baths or saunas 
may lessen the longevity of the extensions. Dry your bonds as soon as possible after any of 
these activities.
− Seawater and pools can cause bond break down due to the constant damp environment. To 
minimize these effects, wet hair completely in a shower and apply a conditioner to the ends. 
After swimming, shampoo and blow-dry the bonds to prevent bond breakdown. 
− Some extension loss and shedding is normal and to be expected. Expect to lose 1-4 extensions a 
month. (Contact your stylist if you are losing more than this) A full head application covers 
approximately one third of the head. You can expect to see a small quantity of naturally 
released hairs trapped in the attachments after some time. This is normal and should not be 
interpreted as hairs pulled of the scalp by the extensions themselves. Daily brushing close to the 
scalp and finger separation of the applied strands will avoid matting in this area.
