Italian technology of hair extensions

The Italian technology of hair extensions is David Gold's invention: the hairdresser-stylist was so tired from the complaints of clients that the resin capsules used in the English technique do not hold loose strands badly, that he invented his way of artificial hair extension in 1991.The essence of it is that the donor locks connect with the client's hair with the help of special capsules based on organic keratin. The master separates a thin strand of native hair and, at a distance of several millimeters from the roots, applies a donor strand to it, heats the capsule with special tongs to the desired temperature and tightly clamps it for 2-3 seconds. The heating temperature of the forceps can be adjusted, taking into account the structure and condition of the client's hair, it can vary from 90 to 180 degrees. Since then, his company "Great Lengths" has gained worldwide recognition and great popularity. After some time, strong competitors appeared on the market. For example, the company "So. Cap, So. Cap Original "and" Euro So. Cap ", founded by three brothers. Currently, they are considered leaders in the manufacture of locks for Italian hair extensions. Their hair is of the highest quality. They always use only natural hair, mostly of European origin. The palette of hair from these manufacturers totals 64 various shades that allows to choose without problems a necessary hair color, including the most extreme colors.

The melting point of keratin is 140-160 degrees( for comparison - t hair dryer 200; t curling 210; t ironing 230).To soften the keratin use a special heating device in the form of two clips( the temperature at the clamps is adjustable, so the harm to their own hair is not caused).When the keratin is softened, the strand is secured with tweezers to their own hair. At the fixing site, small transparent capsules are formed. Frozen capsules are almost imperceptible, and, importantly, soft and flexible - they do not interfere with combing your hair, do not harm your hair. To the touch they are like small seals on the hair. The hair in the capsules is fastened firmly enough, providing reliable fastening of the native and escalating ringlets, therefore it is simple so they will not fall out. To create a good, lush hair, about 120 strands are enough.
