Hair replacement + water: overcome your fears

Holidays often include beach and pool moments, which increase the fears of some hair replacement users. Today we are going to help you to overcome your fear of the water and enjoy your hair without worries.

First of all, forget the idea that you’re going to go out of the water and see your hair system floating in the middle of the pool or that a wave is coming and take it off. This does not happen. Hair systems are attached with very strong adhesives that make these situations impossible .

If you are still worried, test it. Go to a deserted beach or a private pool or get up early to get an unattended place and jump into the water. Do a cannonball, go for the gold or do a triple somersault, try everything and see how your system reacts and how far you can get.

Adhesives are formulated to be waterproof but you must plan it well. First, it’s important to note that you should not wet the system up to 12 hours after placing the adhesives. Secondly, from the 5th day since last maintenance, it is better not to be risky, because adhesives are not at its full capacity.

If you want to be super sure that the system is perfectly attached, pull the hair gently (watch out! do not rip it off!) to check it. We recommend placing tapes at front level, as these are more water resistant than the liquid glue. Those we like the most for this kind of situations because of their resistance are Supertape.

Another product that works wonders in these situations is Scalp Protector which is specially formulated for sports and swimming, as well as for hot and humid climates.

With all this you’re ready to show you swimming style anywhere!

What is the knot sealer used for?

If you’ve ever wondered this, today we give you the answer about the use and benefits of this product which is ideal for those users who want to keep their hair systems in top conditions for a while longer.

Sellador de nudos

Knot sealer is a liquid spray very easy to use, just spray inside the system once it’s clean and let it dry for a few minutes before placing. This way, it acts sealing and protecting the knots, that is, the place where each hair is tied at the base of the hair prosthesis. Sealer covers each knot so that it remains tight and does not tend to loosen. It also reinforces the base against brokes.

Hair extensions care tips for summer

In Hair Solution we are getting ready for summer. After launching our natural hair extensions promotions, now we give you a few tips that will help you keep them in perfect conditions during holidays.

1. The best thing you can do if you go to the beach or pool, it’s updo your hair. This prevents tangling.
2. It’s advisable to use a heat protector for hair or, if you want to maximize precautions, wear a hat.
3. If you go into the sea or pool, as soon as you go out, take a shower to take salt or chlorine away.
4. To detangle your hair it’s better if you use brushes instead of combs. Gently brush them several times a day always starting from the middle of the hair to the ends.
5. Do not wash your hair with hot water, it is ideal to use warm or cold water.
6. Whether summer or winter, we always recommend using a moisturizing mask to avoid tangles and leave hair soft and manageable.
7. To avoid damaging your hair, either your own or the extensions, it is better to avoid the blowdryer and the heat-straighten as much as possible. Take advantage of good weather to dry your hair in the air.

False eyebrows and eyelashes for universal areata alopecia

Today we are going to talk about this kind of alopecia which affects men and women around the world everyday and we are going to explain how to put false eyelashes and eyebrows in these cases.

Universal alopecia is a variant of alopecia areata that causes total loss of hair on the entire body, not just in the head. Its aesthetic solution is simple: just like a hair prosthesis is placed on the head, eyebrows and eyelashes can be put. Its application is very easy and quick. Here we explain step by step so that you can do it at home:

1. It’s important that the area where you will place it was clean. For eyebrows, Scalp Protector can be used to prepare the skin and so the adhesive sticks better.

2. Apply a thin layer of adhesive and allow to stand for 3 minutes until it is transparent. We recommend using water-based glue as Hair Solution ORWG or Ghost Bond, which are more gentle.

3. Eyebrow or eyelash Place the start and press gently. You can help a stick and / or forceps.

April. Let stand for about 5 minutes before comb or make them up.
Hoy nos centramos en este tipo de alopecia que afecta cada día a hombres y mujeres de todo el mundo y os vamos a explicar cómo colocar cejas y pestañas postizas en estos casos.

La alopecia universal es una variante de la alopecia areata que causa la pérdida total del cabello en todo el cuerpo, no solo en la cabeza. Su solución estética es muy sencilla: al igual que se pone una prótesis capilar en la cabeza, se pueden poner cejas y pestañas. Su aplicación es muy fácil y rápida. Os lo explicamos paso a paso para que podáis hacerlo en casa:

1. Es importante que la zona donde se va a colocar, esté limpia. En el caso de las cejas, puedes utilizar Scalp Protector para preparar la piel y que el adhesivo pegue mejor.

2. Aplica una fina capa de adhesivo y deja reposar durante 3 minutos hasta que se quede transparente. Recomendamos utilizar pegamento de base acuosa como el Hair Solution ORWG o el Ghost Bond, que son más suaves.

3. Coloca la ceja o pestaña por el comienzo y presiona suavemente. Puedes ayudarte de un palillo y/o de unas pinzas.

4. Deja reposar durante unos 5 minutos antes de peinarlas o maquillarlas.

5. Si vas a mojarte, deja 3 horas entre la colocación y el baño.

Os dejamos un par de videos para que veáis el proceso de colocación y sus estupendos resultados.

Solvent for hair systems: how to use

When and how should I use solvent in my hair system? Do I have to wash it after use? Which brand do I choose? These and many other questions may arise for hair replacement’s users when using solvent during maintenance.

Our recommendation is always use Lace Release to remove the hairpiece in each maintenance, do not use solvent. Lace Release makes easier to remove the adhesive and prevents breaks of the lace and hair loss. Solvent must be used only to remove rebellious adhesive traces or in case the hair replacement has been attached for too long and glue has gone into the hair. If you abuse of the solvent, you will see that the hair tends to be dry, so it should be used sparingly.

Its use is very simple, just spray some solvent in the adhesive and it acts instantly. You can remove the adhesive residue with a wet wipe and then rinse the hairpiece. If you are going to use shampoo, better a neutral one without sulfates.

In our online store you can find 4 different solvent brands: C-22, Walker, Rapid Release and Ghost Buster, all specifically selected after being tested by our team. They can be found in different formats, from 118ml to 3.8 l.
