You will need a Loop Wand and Hair Extension Pliers.
Expect them to last 4 to 6 weeks or until new growth pushes the beads down. The hair itself can last for multiple installs, but the beads will probably last for 2 to 3 installs before they start to deteriorate. The beads can be replaced by sewing on new beads.
Beaded Wefts do not use glue. They are similar to cold fusion hair using microlink beads. This hair is attached to a weft so placement and coverage can be achieved easily, but not as targeted as cold fusion strands.
Yes, they are lined with silicone which helps keep them from slipping.
}If you're just adding length or volume we recommend 4 to 6 packs (100 to 150 strands). For a full installation we recommend 8 to 10 packs (200 to 250 strands).
If using cold fusion beads, the beads can be unclamped, removed, and reused on future adjustments or installations. The hair itself will last.
For hot glue applications, they can be removed and reinstalled multiple times because of the high quality keratin glue and hair that we use. You would just need a bond remover like c22 to break down the bond. When reinstalling, additional keratin glue sticks and melting pot are recommended.
We recommend a touch up every 3 to 4 weeks as your natural hair grows. The strands will need to be moved up to accommodate for the new growth of your natural hair.
If using a cold fusion technique with a bead, you simply clamp the bead to release the hair. If using glue, you need to use a solvent like pure adhesive remover or C22 to break down the bond and remove the strands.
Hair extension pliers are absolutely needed for any cold or hot fusion technique. For cold fusion we recommend micro beads. For hot fusion you'll need keratin sticks or glue chips, fusion tip protectors, and a hot pot for melting the keratin. For a selection of all the needed supplies click here
Shedding can occur if the weft is cut and not sealed. If you or your stylist need to cut the track we highly recommend using a hair extension or nail glue to seal the track. This will help prevent shedding.
