FAQs – frequently asked questions


Here are frequently asked questions and answers for you …

 

How do I find a hairtalk hairdresser?

You can either use our hairtalk Partner Salon Finder or contact our hairtalk team on +35722785109. Here you will get information on the nearest hairdresser and answers to your questions quickly and easily.

 

How much does a hair extension or thickening cost?

The cost question has no general answer since there is no flat rate, but instead each hairstylist charges individually for services rendered (washing, cutting, applying extensions etc.). A complete hair extension treatment with 40 cm extensions is available starting from approx. € 500. Thickenings cost less, since shorter (25 cm) and fewer extensions are needed. These can be purchased starting at approx. € 150.

 

Can I colour hairtalk extensions or get a perm?

In principle both options are possible, but require special knowledge. We use Remy hair which is first bleached and then dyed to achieve the desired colour. While bleaching or lighter colouring is not possible, darker colour washes or dying is. During a perm, in particular, it is crucial that the treatment is performed only by a specialist who understands that the extensions have already been bleached and heavily processed. Over-processed extensions are not connected to the scalp and thus cannot be internally supplied with essential nutrients through active roots.

 

I have naturally wavy hair - can I also get curled extensions?

Yes, curled strands with different kinds and degrees of waving and curl can be ordered. The hairstylist measures the diameter of the curls and waving and orders accordingly.

 

Can I make a ponytail or swept-up type hair-style with the hair extension?

In contrast to the bonding method, up-swept hair-styles or ponytails are possible with the hairtalk adhesion method without the contact points becoming visible. However, the hair-style should not be combed back too strictly, since the extensions are taped and trained downward in a falling direction. If the hair is loosely teased or pulled upward, or to the rear and/or put loosely in a ponytail or swept-up hair-style, then there is no problem with such hair-styles (see pictures in the “Gallery”: wedding or festive hair-styles).

 

Are the splices noticeable?

The adhesive tapes for splicing are not noticeable. In some cases, directly after applying the extensions, some might feel a bit of a “pinch” for one or two days, since the hair extensions are fastened directly to the hair roots. Otherwise, the connections are so flat, flexible and soft that they meld to the head directly, and even when stroking the hair with hands, the splices cannot be felt.

 

How long can the hair extensions be used, and/or how often do the hairtalk strands need to be reattached to the roots?

The answer to that depends on hair growth and density. In general hairtalk extensions need to be reconnected by hairstylist to the hair roots every two to three months, since they “grow out” together with the natural hair.

 

How often can hairtalk be reused?
The extensions can be reused approx. two or three times depending upon the level of care. The more care, the longer the hair extension remains healthy, shiny and fit for use. The splice can be cleaned and renewed without limit again and again.
 
What do I have to consider regarding care and everyday life of hairtalk extensions?
Washing should take place in the shower and not head over – otherwise it is hard to untangle the hair afterwards. Furthermore, make sure that the care products do not contain oil or alcohol. The splicing tape contact points could separate unless specially formulated hairtalk extensions care products are used.
 
Why do my blond extensions suddenly appear reddish/greenish?
Minerals and chemicals in the water can change the colour of bleached hair. During the bleaching process, the hair layer is cracked open, making it more porous. Porous hair absorbs minerals and chemicals more easily than healthy hair. Iron can be particularly damaging here. The iron that is contained in conventional tap water in large quantities attaches itself to the porous spots and makes them appear reddish or greenish. A reddish discolouration in blond hair does not stem from a faulty product nor is it reason for a complaint, but rather a result of the increased content of minerals and iron in the water. To avoid such effects we recommend intensive care and sufficient use of hairtalk Balm and hairtalk Repair Cream.
