All About Hair Extensions

FX Studio’s Christy LaMacchia talks about Hair Extensions:


Hi I’m Christy from FX. I’m a hair stylist and the extensionist here and I’m here to talk to you a little bit about hair extensions.

Where does the hair come from?

It actually comes from the indian temples.  The women there use it as a sacrifice so they grow their hair out and then they donate it.  Then the US  takes it and it goes through a coloring and shedding process.

 How long does the process take?

It can take anywhere from 2 hours to 5 hours depending on the length and how much we need to put in…if we’re going for fullness.

Can I color my extension?

Yes…you can color it, you can highlight it, you can curl it, you can straighten it…anything you want to do.

How long does my hair have to be?

The hair on the person has to be at least 4 inches in length, so anybody with shorter hair will have to grow it out a little bit longer for the hair to actually catch.

Will extensions damage my hair?

It is not damaging as long as you maintain it properly.

Do I need to use special products?

You have to use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner and hair care products that we recommend getting from the salon.
