Shrink tube hair extensions

To attache this hair extension application method, small sections of your own hair are gently pulled through the shrink tubes often called shrinkies. Hair extension strands are placed inside the shrink tube. Heat is applied to the shrink tubes causing them to shrink around both your own hair and hair extensions. These are virtually undetectable, lightweight and secure.

Shrink tube Hair Extensions can be applied in one solid colour or multiple colours can be applied in combination to create highlights and lowlights as well as fashionable colour flashes. More practical and longer lasting than Clip-in Hair Extensions, each fitting of Shrink tube Hair Extensions should last at least 3 months with correct after care and regular maintenance. The extension hair can be removed, re-tipped and re-fitted if still in good condition.

Note: As the heat from this method has a small chance of melting a little of the bond used to hold the extensions strand together, it is not suitable for clients who definitely don’t want glue based hair extensions.
