Brand: Lock'n Long Hair extensions
Product: FineGlam Human Hair Set
Color: Utah Blonde
My personal routine after washing the Lock'n Long hair extensions with Salon quality Shampoo & Conditioner (I wash every 4-5 days):
I use good ol' baby powder as my "dry Shampoo" and apply to roots so I can go 4-5 days without washing my hair.
Sleeping: Always high ponytail (by forehead) and secure with a clip. Or if it's curled: a High loose bun (by forehead) and secure with a clip. This is for comfort as the rows get flipped upward along with making less of a tangled mess!

While by nature long hair tends to tangle more easily than short hair, tangling and frizzes can be prevented or minimized by proper care and maintenance.Since human hair extensions are prone to heat and dryness damage, it is recommended to use moisturizing and repairing shampoos, conditioners or leave-in creams . We strongly recommend using moisturizing and nourishing oils or shine sprays (e.g., Moroccanoil, sleek- serum CHI) to keep hair extensions silky and less likely to tangle when combing or styling. Avoid teasing or back combing extensions. On the market professional brand care products have ingredients to restore or replenish moisture to hair but cheaper products tend to use fillers like silicone that just smooth hair but create buildup on hair.
If the hair gets frizzy or dry looking, apply or spray the above mentioned conditioners or oils; make sure all moisture is out of hair extensions prior to style and applications. The hair needs to be treated very often with moisture oils due to the fact the extensions do not have a healthy scalp to nourish it.
If tangling has occurred, remove wefts from your hair and brush out knots by gently combing or brushing from below to release tangles. Spray shine or use oil to prevent re-occurrence.
Things you never thought you'd put up with for long hair extensions!
At least the T-Bar Method can Eliminate some of them! Great article by Hair Extension Magazine
THERE they are 1. They take some getting used to. Whether you get clip-ins, tape-ins, glue-ins, keratin bond, pre-bonded, sew-in, or a weave, the subtle feeling of having something in your hair is as annoying/similar to being subtly strangled by a turtleneck sweater.
2. Synthetic hair extensions are affordable, but can look cheap when they don’t blend into your hair. Synthetic hair doesn’t contain moisture like real hair does, so it won’t shine naturally — instead, it has a super-shiny, unnatural sheen to it.They also don’t blend in as seamlessly, can get tangled easily, and can’t be styled and re-styled. But if synthetic strands are all you can swing or if you just want to wear them for one night and don’t want to break the bank buying fake hair, make sure you get a color that matches your real hair undetectably.
3. Human hair extensions are $$$$$. Since they’re made of real human hair and you can do everything you can do with your own hair — like wash, dry, curl, and repeat — wefts (or portions) of fake hair are going to be a pretty penny. Think $250 and up. That said, if you’re going to invest in extensions you’re going to constantly wear, human hair is the way to go.
4. They require a lot of time and effort. You’ll be in the salon chair for at least an hour and a half for your stylist to put in a full set of extensions.
5. You have to get a haircut to blend the extensions flawlessly. Even if they’re clip-ins, if you don’t get a special haircut that blends your hair with the extensions, you’re going to look like you’re wearing fake hair, which is not the goal.
6. You always have to do your hair. There is no such thing as a wash-and-go style when you have extensions. You’re either curling your hair or straightening it to blend it all together.
7. You have to be super-careful when blowing out your own hair or having someone else do it. Because you can’t put the same tension on it that you would on natural hair.
8. You have to be even more gentle when you brush your hair. Brushing your hair like you just don’t care without extensions can cause breakage. But brushing your strands with wreckless abandonwith extensions will not only cause breakage, it could possibly rip your hair right out. OUCH!
9. You also now have to change the way you brush your hair. With extensions, the Marcia Brady way of brushing your hair (from roots to ends) to distribute the oils from your scalp onto your strands for healthier locks is no longer the “right way.” The right way is now working your way up to the extension from the ends (like you would if you have tons of tangles) to ensure you don’t accidentally get your brush stuck in your new weave and pull your real or fake hair out.
10. And because you’re not brushing the oils from your roots to your tips, you now have to manually add hair oil onto your ends. That way they don’t become dry and brittle, since they won’t be getting any natural oil love.
11. A shower cap and dry shampoo are you new BFF. Obviously you need to keep showering regularly, but you want to try and stretch the time in between your shampoos as long as you can to keep the , which is where the shower cap/dry shampoo combo come into play.
12. Your head and neck tend to get hot. Your scalp isn’t used to the amount of hair you just added onto your existing strands, so you can find your head overheating, thanks to your new ‘do.
13. They weigh on your natural hair. Not like a ton of bricks by any means, but you can definitely sense that there is something attached to your hair.
14. They make your scalp itchy. The strip of tape-in extension or glue-in piece attached to your hair can rub against your scalp, itching it. And then when you go to scratch the itchy spot, you have to be careful you don’t accidentally tug on the bundle of hair included in the extension with your fingers, or else it will pull and hurt.
15. High ponytails/top knots are a thing of the past. Your extensions are placed in a way so they lie flat, so putting your hair up in a ponytail could result in this:
Seriously this was my worst nightmare when I would try and were even the best hair extensions and I thought it would be a church where my toddler would just rip it out during the Sacrament Meeting, Ummm, Yep Britney had it worse! But see even the Pop- Princess uses Clip-in (aka something affordable) to create her long blonde hair... Britney Search no more! T-Bar Method is FAST, SECURE and AFFORDABLE
Oops, she lost a piece of her weave.
Britney Spears endured a slight hair snafu during her Planet Hollywood "Piece of Me" Las Vegas residency show on Friday night. Midway through a performance of "Do Something" a clump of the pop princess' blonde hair extensions fell to the ground as she kept on dancing. (The show must go on because nobody has time to worry about losing a few tracks of hair while there are 4,500 screaming fans to entertain.)
Spears launched her Vegas show back in December 2013 and has been performing three nights a week ever since.
During an early show, she also suffered a small wardrobe malfunction when her costume's zipper opened up totally exposing her back. Ever the professional, Spears kept on going as her backup dancers rushed to zip up the costume, and the show carried on.
