WEST COAST HAIR hair extension reviews
What are strand by strand hair extensions?

Strand-by-strand hair extensions are very small bundles of extension hair attached to small bundles of your natural hair.

Why strand by strand hair extensions?

Strand-by-strand hair extensions are found to be the longest lasting, longest wearing hair extension method available. It is a little more time-consuming to apply them but compared to many weft methods, such as sew-ins, tape-ins and other weft methods which are braided in or glued to the hairs at the scalp, the strands can be worn up to 5 times longer than these types of hair extension methods saving both time and money when it comes to installing permanent hair extensions. Stand-by-strand hair extension methods are also found to be the most comfortable and most natural-looking way to wear hair extensions. You can wear your hair up in ponytails, messy buns, things you cannot do with clips, tapes and other weft methods.

How is this different from other hair extension methods?

The WEST COAST HAIR® method of applying hair extensions uses its own U.S. manufactured bonding product by owner of WEST COAST HAIR®, Tiffany Twist. It is a product which contains no glues, no fusion, and no adhesives which are ingredients found in keratin, hot and cold fusion, and traditional fusion hair extension processes and which can be harmful to the natural hair. Tiffany's soft bond™ product and proprietary technique to applying the hair extensions is exclusive to WEST COAST HAIR®.

Is the soft bond “fusion”?

Soft bond™ is not fusion, nor does this product contain any of the adhesives, adhesive wax, protein, keratin or hot glues found in these other marketed extension methods. SOFT BOND™ contains naturally occurring soft lipids, natural and non-toxic ingredients, and is not chemically manufactured like glues are.

I am allergic to most glues and bonds, is this different?

Yes, the WEST COAST HAIR® bonding product uses no glues or adhesives, which are chemically derived and can cause allergic reactions. SOFT BOND™ contains naturally occurring ingredients (found in nature) and non-toxic properties. One of these, ColorLock™, is a cosmetic-grade ingredient, therefore probably in many of the products you already use directly on your skin. SOFT BOND™ has shown no issues for those allergic to other glue and fusion processes. It is ALWAYS recommended you do an allergy test before using and installing and comforting to know there has very rarely been an issue. Also, rinse remaining bond residue from your scalp and skin after removal to guard against any irritation. (Even grass, which is natural, can be irritating when left on your skin!)

How do these bonds benefit me?

You should be very pleased with the comfort of the hair extensions and love the fact you are not using glues or chemicals in your hair. After a week or 2 you forget you are wearing the extensions and everything just blends with your own hair so well. The attachments are discreet and become undetectable as time goes on. You’ll also love that you can re-wear your extension hair, if you choose, saving money and resources!

How long does my hair have to be to wear WEST COAST HAIR®?

You can wear the extensions as long as you have hair to attach to, a couple inches at least. We have successfully added to hair as short as an inch but keep in mind that there isn't any covering hair when bonding to hair this short, and the bonds will show. A hat and scarf could be used to hide these bonds if desired. Hair that is at least 5 inches in length is optimal for blending and covering the hair extension bonds.

What can the bonds handle?

The hair extensions can be worn, washed, dried, styled and slept in day after day and night after night without the need to remove them for many months!

You'll take care not pull on your extensions while your bonds are hot (maybe from a hot hairdryer or direct sun or a sauna) but the bonds can handle what your skin can. If you place a hot hairdryer right at your skin, you will burn it. This is the same with the bonds.

How long can I wear them?

The bonds are created in a manner that they will last in the hair safely and comfortably for 3 to 6 months with proper maintenance and care. At the 4 month point some bonds may begin to wear down and that might be good indication of the time for removal and re-installation of the extensions. Some installations have been worn successfully and safely to 9 months and a year. This requires diligent maintenance, however.

What is the maintenance involved in keeping the hair extensions?

When taking care of your hair extension strands you'll brush once or twice a day (not more) and detangle shed hair strands probably weekly. This ensures the strands grow out tangle free for the longest wear. You can do this yourself or come in monthly and have the technicians do it for you.

How much do WEST COAST HAIR® hair extensions cost?

This varies by location and is according to specialist pricing. Do remember there is an incredible amount of training and labor involved in applying hair extensions. The process takes many hours to apply correctly and with the desired natural looking result. Also keep in mind that the pricing for hair extension products can get very expensive, the better the hair, the less a pain it is to take care of it. Hair extensions are a definite investment but usually well worth the dollars as they produce an amazing end result that raises our confidence level.
