Keratin Flat Tip Application Step By Step
Shampoo and clarify your client’s hair. We recommend washing the hair two times. Scrub well. With this process, you want to remove any oils, conditioners, and products from the customer’s hair. If there is residue left on the hair cuticle, the keratin bond will not adhere to the hair. Therefore the bond will slip from the hair. Be sure your client has thoroughly CLEAN hair and understand the maintenance process.
Dry your client’s hair:
Do not use a comb or brush; the hair will be very tangled due to the clarifying shampoo. Dry the hair without using any tools. Then, then once the hair is thoroughly dry, comb through.
Smooth and Flat Iron your client’s hair, especially if your customer has curly hair! The flat iron process is imperative to tame the curly, unruly hair and allow for the easiest application of the Keratin Flat Extensions process.
Make your first section around the parameter of your customer’s head from the nape around to the temples. Leave about ¾ of an inch space of hair to cover the flat keratin bonds.
Make your first strand section. Using your sectioning/protector guard, make your attachment section. You will need to match as close as possible the section of hair to the size of the Keratin Flat Tip. Don’t take too much hair because it won’t all hold in the bond. Don’t take too little hair because it could pull out of the client’s scalp, which could lead to bumps and bald patched on your customer’s head.
After determining the proper section size, check for any fly away and cross hairs. With your hair section in one hand, place the flat tip under the section, between your fingers. Holding the hair just below the bond, use you applicator tool and gently tap the bond with the hair for 2-3 seconds. You will see the bond melt.
After you see the bond melt, set down your tool and use your fingers to flatten the keratin bond into the section. Check that the bond is evenly attached to the hair. If it is not, you may tap the bond again and flatten again. Be careful not to repeat this procedure too many times on a single bond, a little bit of the keratin is left on the tool with each tap.
Repeat the procedure around your first section.
To make your next section, measure two fingers width space and follow the same path from the back of the head around the sides. Complete this process until you are satisfied with the fullness or you reach the lowest part of the crown. Do not apply any keratin bonds on the top of the head.
Some clients may want to add some strands of hair through the front and fringe area. Adding a few strands is not impossible, but it will require the Keratin Tip to be split in half of the weight to disguise the flat extensions. You need to make sure your client understands that this area of the head is harder to conceal.
Blending your Keratin Flat Tip Extensions
Use a hair cutting razor to cut and blend into any desired style. If you are not proficient with a hair razor, you may pinpoint cut and slide cut. A hair razor is the best tool for cutting and blending hair extensions.
Set up your one-month follow-up appointment and give aftercare instructions to your customer.
