How long do the hair extensions last?
That depends on if you follow the instructions we offer on how to care for your new extensions. The hair should last easily one year or more. We have clients that have had their hair for 2-3 years.
How do you take care of the extensions to make sure it lasts?
Use our sulfate free and chemical free products. Kevin Murphy is our product of choice. Follow our instructions on washing, conditioning and brushing. Keep your heat tools down to 360 degrees. Heat dries out the extension hair as well as your natural hair. It causes breakage and split ends. Have your maintenance done regularly between 10-12 weeks. Any longer than that, it will cause too much stress on your natural hair.
Do the extensions hurt your natural hair?
This is the least damaging of all types of extensions. We don’t use glue, keratin bonding or tapes to install your extensions. After the installation process, your natural hair will continue to grow healthy and strong.
How are the hair extensions installed?
Once separated and parted for installation, Our team then attaches a small copper loc onto the selected strands. The loc is then crimped tight. It is easy and non-damaging. To remove it, the loc is reverse-crimped with our special tool.

Approximately four inches long. Depending on the thickness of your hair, we will ask you to grow your hair longer or a mullet will be your end result.

Can I bring in my own hair if it is set up for the Loc System?
Yes, you can, but we charge $7 per extension to install. We do not guarantee anyone else’s hair.
What is a maintenance?
A maintenance is when we open the locs with our special tool. We remove the shedded hair (the average person looses between 60 to 100 hairs per day), then the hair extension end is re-tipped, and a new loc is then attached to the same strand the original loc was on. The same extensions are put back in place and clamped back down.
