CAUCASIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS GONE WRONG

CAUCASIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS GONE WRONG

HOW NOT TO WEAR OR INSTALL HAIR EXTENSIONS

On this day I had one of my shocking experiences of working with the most damaging glue extensions on Caucasian hair.

My usual day starts and I was in training with students, then the office phone rings at about 11am so I answered.  An extremely traumatised young teenager is on the other end of the phone.  “Can you please help me take out my hair extensions?”  “Of course we can take out hair extensions” I answered back. “What type of extensions is it?” I asked her. She then confirmed that it was glue extensions. So I took it for granted that a glue extensions is normal and can be taken out easily as I teach it and have dealt with all types in my experience of working with extensions.  Afterall, I am an expert here so it will be easy and I gave her an evening appointment as I would be done with training by then.

About 12 midday, a young 16 year old walks into the Centre and introduced herself.  She said she was on break from school so wondered if we could take it out at that time.  It turned out she had tried everything possible and nothing was shifting this extensions with the glue in it.

 

My Students in training had settled down with their training, so I thought I could get on with it and save myself working late hours.  I then asked her to sit down and we started.

Wow! What a shock and horror when I found out the type of glue extensions I was dealing with. I had never dealt with anything like it in my over 10 years of working with Caucasian hair extensions.  The young girl’s hair had matted and tangled in a ball of mess where the glue had pulled her hair strands together.  I was in such shock it took me some minutes to decide what to do to help.  I had nightmares of not being able to help this young client and asking her to cut her hair.  I recollected my thoughts and got on with it using all the various glue remover products I knew.

I asked my students to have a look and tell me how they could have dealt with similar instance.  Luckily one of the students in training was Caucasian and owned a salon too. She then confirmed to me the type of glue that was used in this extensions.  She had experienced it in her salon hence she has come to train in the right ways of adding extensions.  The type of glue used is called COPYDEX which has nothing to do with hair but lots of rogue hairdressers are cutting corners, watching youtube, applying this glue on young people’s head, charging a lot of money for it and causing so much damage to these ignorant teenagers who simply want long hair.

It took nearly 3 hours to take out this extensions completely; the young girl was visibly traumatised and could not obviously go

In the end, her hair was saved, thanks to the fact that I am extremely experienced with hair and love it so much to avoid damage where necessary.  I had to give her lots of healthy hair products to help her treat her stressed hair, gave her lots of advice on types of extensions to avoid and the ones that are healthy.

If you wear extensions, please do not wear this type of hair extensions and if you offer the service, please do not offer this to anyone. It is purely inhumane and I will advise clients to sue you for the trauma and stress they go through in experiencing this nightmare.

TIPS TO CHOOSING A HAIR EXTENSIONS STYLIST AND TYPE

  • Do not wear a type because you know someone who is wearing it.
  • Seek good consultation with your stylist and ask a lot of questions on how it will affect your hair.
  • Find out how the extensions will be taken out as it is not just about the beauty of the hair but how healthy and how it will come out too.
  • Find out how it can be maintained and cared for – what are the processes, can you take care of it or do you need frequent appointments etc.
  • Ask your stylist to show you images of work they have done in the past and confirm if this is okay for your hair type.
  • Confirm if your stylist will take it out and have an idea of how much it will cost to take it out.

CAUCASIAN HAIR DAMAGE CAN ALSO BE SELF-INFLICTED

CAUCASIAN HAIR DAMAGE CAN ALSO BE SELF-INFLICTED

Wow, what a big business move we made by relocating our business about 40 minutes away from the hassle and bustle of metropolitan life in the City of London.  It was one of those moves you make with a clear hope that you are going to have a healthier, better quality life after the stresses associated with major city life.

So we moved into the heart of Essex in England but luckily for us, Southend-on-Sea is a very bubbly City.  It offers us the best of both worlds in the sense that we are close to London which is only a train ride away within 40 minutes; a tourist town where it is usually busy without any stress and to crown our fun; an exciting seaside town with all the trimmings – series of shopping malls all within walking distances, a train station within 2 minutes’ walk, a children’s adventure Island and a beautifully designed seaside beach within 2 minutes’ walk.

On carrying out our business research, we knew it was a City with less Black clientele – 5% to be close, and yet we were not worried as all the other factors above where okay and our business catered to all races.

naomi-campbell-bald

So far our business move has brought me closer to a very interesting discovery. Self-inflicted hair damage is a problem for all-races. This is because prior to our move, my understanding of hair damage has been focused on Black hair where this is what you tend to read about a lot on the internet and in newspapers.  With a clientele of mostly Blacks at the time, I believed this to be true as well.  This is where our move to Southend-on-sea has brought me a different understanding of hair damage on all hair types. It has created a different experience regarding working with Caucasian hairtypes.

On this particular Saturday morning at about 8am, my telephone rings and I answer it.  Prior to this call, I was getting prepared for a Festival event in the neighbourhood where we had been invited to braid the hair of 200 young girls in professional FA Football so preparing and putting all the materials required in my bag was an absolute necessity. I was very busy and did not want to forget any item as in events of this nature; the least forgotten item may become what ruins the whole event.

So when this telephone call came, it was simply an inconvenience that was going to distract my morning.  All the same, I answered the phone and a man on the line asked the question “what time do you open your salon?” I told him the time which is 10am.  Then there came a heavy pause on the line which I could tell were signs of desperation. So I probed and enquired if he was okay. Then it all came out as he answered.

“We are in front of your salon, my wife desperately needs help with her hair extensions, and could you come and help us.”  I can tell a cry for help when I hear one and this was one of those times.  So I told him to wait for me as I was going to be with him within 5 minutes.

Yes he waited and when I got to him, what I saw was an absolute shock – a young Caucasian lady with the whitest coloured hair I have ever seen. This hair was damaged, stringy and platinum white. I was in shock for several minutes. My immediate reaction was a mutter underneath my breath – “here we go again” and this is because I have seen incidents like this several times over.

Bad glue gun hair extensions

On checking the state of this hair, it was extremely short – less than 2 inches natural hair attached to a very long length hair extension. I asked her to sit down and tell me what had happened and how I could help. She had bleached and coloured her hair several times over which had damaged her hair and now she needed the length back so she had gone to get a hair extensions service from a salon where they had added all this volume and length of 30” extensions to her about 2” natural hair but it looked so ridiculously fake. The worst part was that they had used black glue to add this platinum white beach blond extension onto her hair which was very visible considering her hair was very short.

How could I help, I asked? She wanted me to take out the extensions because the black glue was very obvious and did not let the extensions look real which made her feel self-conscious and look extremely ridiculous.

On further discussions, I found out that she had bleached and coloured this hair several times which had completely damaged her hair making it become very short. In a bid to recapture her locks, she had gone on to add the glue gun type of extensions to an already damaged hair.  This method is very damaging and not encouraged especially for damaged hair.  So this method had finally ruined her hair beyond repair and now she wanted me to help her take out the glue as the person who put it in, did not know how to take them out.  This is what I call self-inflicted hair loss.

This is not a one-off experience.  Prior to this lady, I have seen so many hair loss problems among Caucasians caused by series of bleaching, colouring and additions of unrealistic hair extensions.  Most times, the hair comes in looking like spaghetti straws – absolutely lifeless and in colours that could be seen in the rainbow colours.  Some of the clients say to me, that they have coloured their hair so many times, that they have no idea what their natural hair colour looked like.  Put the television on and the number of adverts on hair colouring will get the message across, then walk into the beauty isle in any super market and you will be confronted with these colours. We have discovered too that nearly every Caucasian girl in Essex wants to be blond just like the girls in TOWIE (a television series called – the only way is Essex) hence the continuous drama just like the lady above.  I have seen instances where the extensions have been applied with bonding glue up to the hairline.  Another instance was where the glue was applied directly on the scalp to hold the hair together etc, etc.

There was also another major incident where this teenager walked in with her Mum. Her hair was so damaged, I had no idea what was on her head. It looked so frail, thin and extremely short that she used bobby pins to hold the hair together. She had bleached and coloured it so much that the hair was extremely lifeless and needed these pins to be held in place.  What they wanted from me was a wig and as is normal in Essex, she wanted a blond wig. At this time, we had not stocked blond wigs so she wanted to have any colour wig fitted on so she could decide on the design to choose from.  She sat down and we fitted a red coloured wig on her head. This wig was absolutely perfect on her head and the colour suited her face very well. The design also suited her so much; you would think it was her own hair. From the fit, her mother was so impressed, she told her daughter “This is really great!  You do not have to colour your hair any more as we can buy whatever colour you want in wigs without damaging your own hair.” Then it finally dawned on me that the hair colouring and bleaching was one of the major reason responsible for Caucasian hair damage and this has always been self-inflicted hair damage as the decision to colour comes from the wearer. And there are so many more of instances like this that I meet most days as I operate from Essex. This brought home the memory of Black women and hair relaxers which just like colouring, is causing most of the Black hair damage and yet is another case of self-inflicted hair damage.
