“I can’t reuse my I-link hair extensions, it won’t fit through the bead anymore.” Does this sound familiar? Don’t panic, it’s normal. If you think about it, the tips of your I-Links have been clamped down for so long, how could they not be a flat shape? If you don’t already know how to get the tips back into their original round shape, keep reading…

What you’ll need:

Straightening iron

Removed I-Link strands

What to do: Set your straightening iron to 280 degrees. Once your l-Links are removed, take one strand and place your straightening iron on the flat tip of the I-Link (the part that’s been clamped inside the bead). Apply the straightener only for a few seconds, then take the ball of your thumb and index finger and roll the tips back and forth until you get a round shape. That’s it!

Here’s a money saving tip for clients: Stylists usually charge for the time they spend on prepping the hair extensions for move-up appointments. If you feel confident enough to wash your own hair extensions, dry them, and roll them back into shape, it’ll save you some reinstallation cost.

Disclaimer: If you don’t know how to take out your own I-Links, we do not recommend doing it. Please have your stylist take them out for you as they require the proper use of the hair extension tool.
