Whether you’re looking to set up a beauty business that offers mesh integration, or you are looking into the best hair extension choice for you, it’s good to know everything that there is to know about this increasingly popular extension choice.
Below, we discuss the most important features and benefits of the mesh integration hair extensions system, how it can benefit you or your clients and why this choice is breathing fresh life into the hair extension industry.
What is mesh integration?
Initially designed to help men and women who suffer with moderate to severe hair loss, mesh integration uses a form of netting (or mesh), which is placed at the root of the hair, above the scalp. This mesh is completely breathable and there is no need to shave or cut the hair, meaning you can make the most of your current hair.
Once the mesh has been fitted and cut to size, new hair- usually made from real, European strands- is then interlocked with your natural hair. The result is a new head of hair that is thicker, stronger and healthier looking than ever before.
Things to consider before opting for mesh integration
It’s no secret that lying on your extensions means they’re more likely to wear down faster, which can mean your extensions are more likely to snap and become thinner when not cared for appropriately. If you’ve opted for longer extensions, you can negate this by plaiting your hair before your go to sleep, which can minimise the movement and increase the longevity of the mesh integration system.
Leave-in conditioners are a great add-on that can help keep hair shiny and healthy, as all extensions can become a little dry over time. A huge benefit to mesh extensions is that they lie closer to the scalp and therefore are more likely to use the natural oils the body provides to keep your new hair at optimal conditions.
You will also need to have mesh integrated hair extensions refitted on a regular basis- usually between 3 and 6 weeks. Being fully trained in this system means you will be able to offer this service, so the right hair extensionist should be able to comfortably refit and reposition the hair mesh system on a regular basis.
