This post has been a long time coming, I am beyond excited to share with you all my knowledge and love for hair KLIX extensions.
Lets be honest…hair is totally a reflection of who we are and the way we treat & style our hair says a lot about who you are… for me it sets the tone of my day!
This post is primarily going to focus on leave in “moveable” extensions and my favorite brand KLIX. I know, I know “clip in ” extensions are super popular these days but I am NOT a fan. I personally don’t want to have to take them out and put them in each day. I’ve learned that if you purchase the right hair extensions and they are placed correctly you won’t deal with all the common extensions complaints.
I usually get the same questions over and over about my hair, so I thought I would just answer them all in one post. Giving you my experience using KLIX and then KLIX recommendations for care.
How Long Have I Used Hair Extensions and Why KLIX? I’ve been using Klix extensions for about 10 years now. They are awesome because the application is easy and safe, and unlike tape in extensions I can use the same batch of hair for close to a year. It is so nice not having to purchase hair every time I need them moved up. KLIX recommends the hair lasting between 4 and 6 months.
How Long Does It Take To Place The Hair Extensions? It takes around 1-2 hours to place my hair, it really depends on how much hair your are placing. Half Pack or Whole Pack. I personally wait 8 weeks to get the hair moved up, which usually takes 30-45 mins. KLIX recommends maintenance visits every 4-6 weeks.
Do you have damaged hair from using extensions? No. Klix doesn’t use heat, glue, tape, and no removal chemicals leaving behind no breakage. If the hair is placed by Klix Certified Stylist and you’re using the proper products and brushing techniques in my experience I have had NO damage.
Can you really brush you hair? Yes, I can! Obviously when you brush it differently but I can totally give my hair a good brushing. Klix recommends using a brush with a combination of natural boar and nylon bristles.
Do you ever have any that slip out? NO- – seriously with my Klix extensions I have never had an issue with much slippage. With proper maintenance visits every 4-6 is recommended you shouldn’t have a problem with slipping.
The number one question is I get asked is can you feel The Weft or Beads? The klix weft is pretty much undetectable and very must skin like. It is attached to your hair with silicone lined micro-links that protect your natural hair. No, I don’t notice the beads at all, the day I get a new set of extensions in my head is sore. On average Klix states an average of 72 hour discomfort, and some people experience mild headaches, itching and/or general soreness.
OKAY lets talk the discuss the METHOD, basically the process of how your Klix Certified Stylist will place your extensions.
- A piece of your natural hair is pulled through silicone lined micro-links. The silicone lining cushions your hair and helps to prevent breakage.
- Your stylist uses a closing tool to close the micro-link onto your natural hair.
I created a little behind the scenes IGTV video for you to see the process. I’m placing 31 duo color which has a highlight and lowlight colors, this helps blend everything perfectly!
There you have it the most amazing hair extensions ever… seriously if you are looking to change it up and try something new with your hair… switch it up with Klix extensions they are the best!
