Are hair extensions for you?

Keratin bonds attach to the hairAs a rule, I don’t recommend hair extensions because of the expense, maintenance, and the potential damage. But, some women still want them for special occasions, or because they have dramatically thinning or problem hair. Some women have them applied to "pouf up" thin hair. Others have them put in for a wedding or a special occasion because they want long dramatic hair, and have neither the time nor ability to grow it themselves.

Until I saw the Tony Odisho method there was no process that I felt comfortable recommending. The Tony Odisho method is gentle and less destructive to your own hair. Extensions need special care, so he has developed an excellent line of products from light foaming mousse to dry shampoo, to help keep extensions beautiful. The products are so luxe you may want to try them even if you don’t have hair extensions. If are – or have ever – contemplated hair extensions, don’t make a move without reading this informative interview. All extensions are not the same.
DD: Why do so many hair extensions cause hair loss, and how are yours different?
TO:  Tony Odisho Hair Extensions do not damage the clients’ hair. The bond is made of 100 percent keratin protein. It has the same structure and behavior as the protein in our natural hair, so it expands and contracts at the same rate as our own hair.  Because of this keratin protein bond, there is no damage to the clients’ hair during installation, removal, or during the life of the extensions.

Tony OdishoThe perception that hair extensions damage the hair is really a misconception based on old techniques and old technologies.  Years ago, when the bond was made from non-organic materials such as resin or glue, extensions could easily damage the hair.  But in the past five to 10 years, the technology used for quality hair extensions has improved dramatically.  As with any product and service, incorrect use and application can cause unwanted outcomes.  That is why Tony Odisho Extensions offers intensive training at its dedicated training institute, so that stylists have the skills and confidence to not only install hair extensions expertly, but to educate their clients on the maintenance of their extensions to ensure beautiful, long-lasting hair.
DD: Can the extensions be put up and styled different ways? 
TO:  Yes.  Hair extensions are applied at least one inch from the perimeter of the hairline so that when the hair is up, you will not be able to see the bonds. Tony Odisho Hair Extensions are made of 100 percent high quality human hair so they can be blow-dried, flat-ironed, or curled with a curling iron, and styled using your favorite styling products.
DD: Are they appropriate for women who already have issues, such as thinning hair or other hair damage? 
TO:  Yes, most clients who get hair extension are people with thinning hair. There are a myriad of reasons why a client has thinning or damaged hair.  The use of extensions to repair or conceal these issues would be decided on a case-to-case basis.  The application would be different for an aging or post-menopausal client wanting to achieve thicker hair, than for a client with chemical damage who is looking for help getting through the awkward period of hair recovery.
DD: How long do the extensions last? Do the extensions need to removed? If so, how? Does this damage the hair? 
TO:  Hair extensions last from three to six months, depending on the type of application and by how well the client maintains them). For people with thin hair, not more than three months and for people with thick hair, up to six months.  Hair extensions must be removed by a certified hair extensions stylist.  A specialized solution is applied to the keratin bond.  The solution penetrates the bond and crystallizes it.  A removal pincer breaks up the bond so the extension slides off the clients’ hair with no damage to their hair.
DD: Do the extensions require special care?
TO:  Yes, proper client maintenance is the secret to long-lasting extensions.  There are several simple yet important steps a client must follow to maintain beautiful extensions:
·        Brush the hair twice a day using an extensions brush;
·        Sleep with the hair put up in a loose ponytail;
·        Wash the hair with hair extensions shampoo or professional, salon-quality shampoo.  Shampoo with the head upright using a downward, zigzag motion.  Rinse in the same manner;
·        Apply a quality conditioner from the middle down to the ends while the hair is wet.  Use a wide toothed comb to work the conditioner through the hair;
·        Dry the hair using a blotting motion.  Never turn the head upside down and rub;
·        Wear hair in a ponytail or in a cap when swimming;
·        Style using quality hair care products.
DD: How long does the application take?
TO:  A full head application, which is 100 to 150 strands, should take a maximum of three hours including cutting and blending.  Experienced stylists can apply the extensions in closer to two hours.
Finished resultsDD: Do you use all human hair? Can it be colored and styled to match any client’s hair?
TO:  Tony Odisho Extensions uses only human hair from India.  The hair is completely Remys System, meaning the hair is harvested and kept as an intact bundle with the top and bottom clearly marked throughout the manufacturing process to ensure that the hair cuticles all face the same direction.  (Some companies offer ‘brushed Indian hair’.  This is gotten from women who do not want to cut their hair, so they brush it out into a ball, which is then combed out and put into strands with the cuticles facing opposing directions.  This hair is completely unmanageable and will tangle and mat when washed. Also, Tony Odisho Extensions does not use Asian/Chinese hair.  This hair is inexpensive and in great supply, but it is much thicker than Caucasian hair and thus must be processed to a much greater extent, causing the hair to lose its structure.  This hair is often covered with silicon to mask this problem, but after a few washings, this hair starts to disintegrate and turns to gum. Tony Odisho Extensions are 100 percent Remys Human Hair from India.
The hair comes in a wide range of colors and combinations.
DD: Can you match any hair texture?
TO:  Tony Odisho Extensions come in straight and curly.
