Potential Problems with Extensions

Potential Problems with Extensions

  • Allergic reaction– may occur if the client is not tested for an adhesive or resin allergy. Remove bonds immediately and seek medical advice.
  • Sore, tender scalp– may occur if extensions have been placed incorrectly. Crossed hairs from the poor application can cause pain. If the problem persists, you must remove the extensions and advise the client on follow-up care.
  • Traction alopecia– If the hair recedes or areas of hair loss appear, remove the extensions immediately and seek advice from a trichologist.
  • Knotted or matted extensions – not maintaining the extensions. Comb or brush the hair from roots to points. Detangle from the bottom and work towards the top. Check that the extensions have all been placed from root to point.
  • Poor condition after shampooing- Check that products are being used as directed by the manufacturer’s instructions. Try recommended high-end products on extensions do not go cheap if you want them to last.
  • Tangling of extensions during sleep – Tie the hair back using a soft, covered scrunchy or ribbon – this will keep the hair from tangling as the client sleeps. Silk pillow covers work great as well. Rolling the hair in a soft roller, Duby (the hair is wrapped around the head and secured with a closed bobby pin), or pin curls that can keep the curl or hair in place.
  • Ineffective bonding – may be due to poor application, ineffective resin, or not following the manufacturer’s instructions. Rebonding can be carried out if the hair is in good condition.
  • Loss of extensions – may occur as a result of using incorrect shampoo, using heated styling equipment on the bonds, or over-combing or brushing. The client should take care when using heated styling equipment and use tools carefully so as not to disturb the extensions. Poor application may also be to blame or how the client has taken care of the application. Recommend that the client return to the salon to have the problem checked out.
  • Swimming – Clients who swim in a pool or even the beach may experience a lot more tangling, matting, hair loss, or damage to their hair and the extensions. If your client is a frequent swimmer ask them to wear a cap if possible, immediately after swimming they must rinse the hair and scalp thoroughly, and the hair must be gently shampooed and deep conditioned.

Did the zoom course for Nano brows and my instructor was amazing. A very in depth course. Was certified right away after doing my model. So happy with this school. Also Did the online course for Brow lamination and lash lift online and those courses were also thorough and in depth. Will be taking more courses soon :))

Such an amazing experience. Very quick and thorough course. Very laid back and stress-free zone! They are very flexible and understanding. My model was my dad and he fell really ill the day he came over for his brows. They called me right away and reassured me they'd reschedule and work with me to become certified asap! So thankful. Definitely feel prepared and have resources to look back on!
