Do you know the most natural method for hair extensions? Here, you can try beaded hair extensions or “micro bead” extensions. Professional can put them in, but you can take beaded hair extensions at home.
- Part hair in four sections – front, both sides and back.
- Hold a beaded strand starting at the hairline for a clear view.
- Apply pressure to the sides to open the head. Do not squeeze too tight, for this will cause the bead to tighten instead of loosen.
- Slide bead downward gently and away from hair. If apply the right amount of pressure, the hair extension should slide off with the bead. Use a fine toothed comb to comb the natural hair strand. Once all heads have been removed, it will be easier to comb through hair. If it is matted or tangled, do not comb through hair.
- If head is difficult to remove, you can squeeze it in different directions to break it.
- Repeat the process to remove all the beaded extensions in the section.
- Use a hair clip or hair band to pin up the completed section or prevent tangles.
- Work though the remaining sections to remove the beads and pin the completed sections.
- Release the hair sections.
- Wet hair. Apply a generous amount of conditioner thoroughly and evenly. Let the conditioner sit in hair for at least 15 minutes. The longer the conditioner sits on the hair, the removing effect is better
- Use a fine-toothed comb to carefully comb a matted or tangled section, starting at the end. Keep this process until you can easily comb through the hair.
- It is recommended to give hair a break from extensions.
- It is recommended hair color or any other chemical treatments for a couple of weeks.
- Throw beads out, and do not re-use beads.
- Take proper care of hair extension to minimize tangles and matting in natural hair, and preserve hair extensions for future use.
- Do not comb through tangles from the scalp down.
