I have had short hair for as long as I can remember and decided that it’s time to do something different, do something wild, do something wonderful, like getting extensions. So a week from today, I have an appointment with my stylist to add a full head of fusion tip extensions to my hair. I’m a little nervous but excited. Is there anything I should be aware of or do, to get the best results?

Ashanti, you are in good hands and your stylist has been trained extremely well in applying Donna Bella bond “fusion” extensions.
If you are like most people, you will be ultra aware of the extensions during the first two to three days. You’ll notice the weight of the hair, the movement on your shoulders, and a slight discomfort when your head is on your pillow at night. Those sensations will go away very quickly and all you will feel is the extra confidence and enjoyment you are getting from your lengthy hair.
Extensions produce a noticeable change in routines for most people. You will want to be much more attentive to your long hair than you’ve ever been before. With short hair you fuss and muss, blow and go, and your hair always looks pretty good.
Extensions require more care. After all, you have more hair to care for. Take time during the day to gently comb your hair to avoid tangles. Use a special hair extension brush that floats over the Kera-link tips. Prior to washing your hair be sure to comb it out. Use a top quality shampoo and follow the instructions on the bottle. Finally, condition your hair more often than you have in the past to ensure its softness and durability.
You are purchasing Remy human hair and getting the best quality hair in the world. Yes you can use a hot iron, dryer, and color but remember that just like your own hair, your extensions can be damaged if overworked and overstressed.
