Klix Hair Extensions: Everything You Need to Know
Our hair is probably the first thing that most people notice about us. As such, most of us take a lot of pride in the color, cut, and style of our tresses, and we spend a lot of time coiffing it just so.
That is why, when it comes to extensions, you want to do your research to find the very best. Virgin human hair is the highest grade you can get, and the “movable” type is key. In other words, you want the sort of extensions that can be swept into a long, straight ponytail (very much on trend right now) or a messy top knot.
Klix Hair Extensions are the solution to all your extension needs. Despite their name, they are not actually the ultra-popular clip-in extensions that you are probably picturing. Klix actually attach to your hair in a natural way that allows free movement of each weft. They are also semi-permanent. In other words, you won’t have to remove them everyday and put them back in the next morning. They are placed by a stylist that is trained specifically in Klix Hair Extension application, and, if they are placed correctly, you shouldn’t suffer from any of the common complaints that you usually hear from those who wear hair extensions.
The beautiful, painless wefts also come in a variety of colors. Many of the shades have a range of highlights and lowlights that are designed to match your natural hair color.
Klix Hair Extensions FAQ:
How do the extensions attach to your head?
The method of weft placement is so simple and it doesn’t require glue, tape, or heat, yet it is semi-permanent and movable, unlike clip-ins.
Each weft is dotted with silicone-coated links on the outward-facing side. Pieces of your real hair are pulled through each of these micro-sized links and the silicone protects the fragile hair so it won’t break or split.
Next, the certified stylist will use his or her closing tool to close each link semi-tightly on the natural hair pieces. It’s that simple.
How long is the extension placement process?
This is all dependent on the amount of hair that you are placing on your head at a given time, but it usually averages around an hour and a half to two hours. You can get a whole pack of extensions placed, or half of a pack, or any amount in-between that seems appropriate. It really all depends on your desired style and whether you are adding the extensions for thickness or length or both.
Getting the wefts moved up is a much faster process. It usually only takes between a half hour and 45 minutes. It is recommended that you wait at least eight weeks before you worry about this, however, and eight weeks between each “moving up” maintenance appointment.
How long do these extensions last?
Because of how they are placed in the hair, the same batch can be used for up to a whole year, though the Klix manufacturers say they are only guaranteed for 4 – 6 months. You won’t have to worry about purchasing new hair, though, because the weft needs to be placed farther up due to hair growth. The extensions can easily be released, moved, and re-tightened.
Do Klix Hair Extensions cause damage to the hair like many other extensions do?
They are approximately 99% damage-free. Since they don’t require tape, glue, heat, or chemicals to remove them further down the road, there is next to no possibility of breakage.
Also, you want to be sure that your stylist is certified and trained by Klix themselves. If so, he or she will be sure to provide you with the proper care instructions for both your own hair and the extensions, as well as show you which products to use and the right brushing techniques. This should minimize any damage, though most clients report not having any at all.
Are you able to brush your hair?
You actually can brush both your hair and the extensions thoroughly. The difference is in how you brush it. Your stylist will instruct you on how to brush your natural hair and the wefts without causing any damage to either of them. The Klix company recommends a combination of nylon and natural boar bristles on your brush.
How well do the extensions hold and stay put?
According to repeat customers, the wefts are highly unlikely to fall out unless they are placed wrong. That is why it is crucial to have them put in by a professional stylist that is certified by the company.
They are really not prone to slipping, and, if they are maintained and placed further up along the natural hair shafts every few weeks, there really aren’t any issues as far as the extensions falling off the head.
This means you can dance, play sports, shower, make love, and run around with your children, as well as participate in many other physical activities, and you will never have to worry about your hair!
Can you feel the beads and the weft in your hair or on your head?
At first, it can be a bit sore, but that feeling typically ends within three days of getting a new set of extensions. You may experience some other mild discomforts, such as a light headache, senditivity to the touch, and even some itching.
However, once the extensions are in for a while, you can barely detect them. Not only are they difficult to see, you can’t really feel them either. The microlinks are silicone-lined and the wefts are light and feel like natural skin. They are very comfortable, and, after some time has passed, you will completely forget they’re there.
