The 16 most asked questions about hair extensions

Are you looking for ways to give your hair more volume and length? Then hair extensions are a good solution! In this article we will answer the most important questions about hair extensions and what you can expect when you have them installed.

1. What are Hair Extensions?

Hair extensions are strands of hair that are attached to your own hair to create volume and length. There are different types of extensions available, including weave extensions. With weave extensions, the strands of hair are sewn to a braid. The extensions are then cut so that they fall naturally.

2. The difference between Weaves and Extensions

A weave is a specific type of extension. There are also other types of extensions that are glued instead of braided, for example. Hairweaves are strips of hair that are sewn onto a braid. This is how you create volume and lengthening.

3. Are the Weaves/Extensions harmful to my own hair?

No, it is not harmful to your own hair or scalp. No chemicals are used to secure or remove the extensions, it is 100% natural. The extensions have been developed in such a way that overloading your own hair and scalp is prevented. The hairweaves are beautiful thin strips and are not placed too tightly against the scalp.

4. Do extensions hurt?

No, placing extensions does not hurt. The extensions can feel a bit tight for the first few days, but after that you won’t notice any difference with your own hair.

5. Are the Hair Extensions made of real hair?

Yes, our Hair Extensions are made from the highest quality human hair. Due to the unique weaving system and because the structure corresponds to Western hair and therefore also to Dutch hair, the Extensielle hair extensions merge with your own hair.

6. How often should applied Weaves be lifted?

Typically, weaves need to be reinserted between four and eight weeks. That depends on the speed at which your own hair grows and how well you take care of the extensions.

15. Are there many people with Hair Extensions?

More than you think! Where it used to be mainly artists and other celebrities who had extensions put on, it is now completely established. It will eventually become as common as cutting and coloring. The appearance of Hair Extensions is very natural, so the extensions cannot be distinguished from your own hair.

16. How long will the treatment take?

The first appointment takes a bit longer than the follow-up appointments, because we start with a personal consultation. We go through your wishes with you, we choose a color and determine the length and number of weaves. Based on that, you will receive a quote.

The extensions are then cut and placed in such a way that they fall naturally into your own hair. All in all, this takes about 2 to 3 hours. A follow-up appointment where the weaves are placed up takes less time.
