What Quality Extensions hair do we use?
Elitestylz use human remy hair extensions, made of 100% natural hair. Our Human hair comes from many parts of the world. Asian, Italy India brazil countries are the prime source of human hair extensions, Indian hair is most common which resulted from the fact that Chinese hair is too thick and European hair – quite thin, as it is often chemically damaged by bleaching, pressing or perms. Undamaged and unprocessed European hair is very expensive because it is in short supply but our prices for this range remain very competitive.

Types of Hair used for Hair Extensions
Elitestylz uses only remy hair, which means the hair cuticle is kept intact and the hair is bundled so that the cuticles all lie in one direction. That way remy extensions are stronger, healthier and tangle free compared to non-remy hair.
Elitestylz pre-tipped hair extensions are attached to the client’s hair with a keratin protein bond which is on the end of each strand of the extensions. The extension hair is removed using a delicate Keratin is a protein which forms skin, teeth, nails and also hair. Therefore, keratin glue is the best and harmless natural adhesive for human hair. Our extensions are re-usable and can last from 3-6 months to 12-24 months, depending on the hair you have choosen, how fast the hair grows and how well the client maintains the hair. extensions guarantee high quality natural-look hair which can have any heat applied and can be permed and coloured.
What Hair Extension methods do we use?
Hair extensions are applied using various methods fusion, pre bonded or deluxe micro rings these are a few see our full range of services here . the most popular method hair extensions are bonded and applied strand by strand. Each bond contains keratin glue which softens under the heat and fuses to the natural hair. Keratin glue consists of keratin, which is the primary component of hair fibre. Therefore, keratin glue is the safe way to apply hair extensions without damaging your own hair.
We also apply hair extensions using the ultrasonic cold fusion method. The process is the same as in hot fusion, except that the bonds weaken under the ultrasonic wave. According to many salons and hair extensionists, this method does not damage your hair, compared to the hot fusion method. However, to our mind none of the methods damage or in any way affect your hair negatively. On demand, the hair extensions can be applied using the cold fusion method for extra charge of £40, required because it takes more time.

During the process, we will discuss the maintenance and after care of your new extensions.
The extensions need to be looked after and maintained every 4-8 weeks depending on method used. It is normal to lose some bonds and thickness during this period. During maintenance it will be ensured that there are no loose bonds and, if they require replacement, 10-15 old strands will be removed and new ones added.
Removing Hair Extensions
After 3-6 months your hair extensions can be removed we reccomend no longer than 4 month. During the removal process a removal liquid may be used depending on what method was applied for bonds it will be used which will dissolve the bonds and allow the extensions to slip away easily. After that each strand will be combed. The removal will not damage your hair. After the removal, your hair will be washed. It is possible to apply new extensions after the removal and this can be done the same day. If you wish to remove the hair extensions yourself, the remover can be ordered and sent to your home address. The removal instructions can be provided free.

New To Hair Extensions, What to Look Out For
When it comes to hair extensions, cutting corners by getting the cheapest hair will cause you disappointment, it will cost you more in the long run and possibly cause damage to your hair. Don’t be fooled by some hair extension offers that seem very cheap – there is usually a reason for that... Remember, if it sounds too good to be true consider the quality - it may not be the best hair, which will dry out quickly, shed, tangle or look and feel very brittle. This kind of hair may only last you a few months. Or even worse, it may not be 100% human hair that is being attached to your head (big disaster and it happens)…Other things to watch out for is the quantity of hair… if your extensionist doesn’t apply enough hair it will look fake, unbalanced and very obvious!!! so heed our word of warning.
