Have Long Beautiful Hair in 1 Day Just Like the Movie Stars! Mobile Hair & Tan Co.

 

Jessica simpson, Beyonce, Brittney....the list goes on! They all have one thing in common and it's not the big bucks ;) ....it's hair extensions.

 

Your hair will move and look like it is growing from your scalp because we actually adhere human hair to your own strands of hair. It’s quick, painless and does not harm your natural hair.

 

Fusion bonding - natural hair is divided into small sections then the hair weave is attached to the natural hair using the original Fusion Method adhesive. The fusion 3 months. It grows out as your natural hair grows out. It is easily, painlessly removable using a patented remover solution.

 

The process gives added fullness and length. Yes, any color or grade of hair can be matched.

 

No weaving machine, no pole, no braiding, no needle, no thread, no weft, and no heat. Strands to strands—no pain.

 

Will not damage your hair. Go from short, damaged hair to long, beautiful hair in one day.

 

We only use human hair. Your hair will be soft to the touch. You will pick up the appropriate package of human hair the day of the appointment.

 

I can come to you or you can come to us. This type of hair extension is 12/14/16 or 18 inches long. You can also do extensions to add volume to thin hair or go for the exotic look and have a full head done.

 

 

If you are requesting our Mobile Service, Fees and Charges are standard and will not be increased unless you are out of the travel limitations.[/color][/b]

Hi Valencia and Sophia,

 

Valencia - I noticed that you questioned the base ingredient in the fusion system Sophia uses. Is there a system that doesn't require special products? Or should I say - is there a fusion system that you can use oil-based products with? If so, what is the base ingredient? I have always wanted to get fusion, and I've even taken a class on it, but I figured that because I have dry hair, fusion would not be right for me. Any help or advice you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

 

Sophia - what are the special products needed with the system you use? Also, to reiterate Valencia's question, what is the base ingredient and can you use oil-based products or do they have to be oil-free? Thanks for posting.

I to have dry hair so I can't use anything that will not allow me to use oil such as polywax, keratin protein fusion bond is one of the best on the market today, I have used it for years and found that I can concentrate on my specific hair care needs without worry and the effect the products have on my fusion bonds, with all do respect to my colleague I was just curious.

 

But I must say Hair Diva you are doing the right thing asking questions and I encourage everyone to do the same, PLEASE do a consultaion before having the service done, ask to see samples of the bond used (not just pictures) and ask for a removal demostration making sure removal is easy and not damaging...........

 

Thank You

Valencia

Hi Ladies

Sorry for the late response. I try and get on here as much as possible.

 

Valencia, I do travel within in few hours of each of my studios. I am set up in Baltimore and Hagerstown. I do have clients who want weaves etc do you do those? I can send them your way if you do. Im strickly the Strand by Strand girl. Also, So.Cap is having a training seminar in Annapolis at the end of the month, let me know if you are interested in becomming a licensed stylist for them. Great product from Italy.

 

Hair Diva:

Hi, sorry for the delay. HOnestly I usually shop on the web but never really FORUM.. <_<

I think you called me the other day about products. As you said you were going to do your own. I did get your email today and will respond tomorrow. That said with any products you usually find a bit of oil base, but there are some that are minimal. As with all extensions, oil is BAD. Condition the ends only also. I would like to also mention that Valencia is on the mark, it is one thing to put them inyour self but another to take them out! The damage done is never the Fusion (if done correctly) it is done when taking them out.

 

I have had and do Hair Extensions for ten years. To be honest the best thing is to keep out of heat, use warm water and brush from the bottom up. And if you are really serious about maintenance. put your hair in a braid before bed or fitness.

I do belive that Valencia and I "give good hair"  wink wink

I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear. I don't recommend that my clients remove their own fusion (I even offer that as a free service) but the process depending on the fusion bond used is so easy 95% of my business is repeat and I give removal lessons to anyone that ask for it, perfect example I had a client yesterday who is leaving for Iraq for a year not to mention I have ladies that fly in from around the country, I'm not going to ask them to pay airfare just for a removal when I know a child can do it (BASIC FUSION BONDS ONLY) as bad as I wanted to do the Ulitimate Fusion on her I didnot because removal is more complicated and must be removed by a specialist.

 

Thank You

Well Miss Valencia you sure put a fire under my butt :P

It was great to talk to you today. I love to meet other fellow hair addicts that are in for the long haul. If hair extensions are done right, they are addicting. And with my own personal experience, when I curl my own hair and hit the outdoors, it doesn't matter what I do to it, it is flat in less than 30 seconds. With hair extensions, if I put a curl in it actually stays, what a concept.

 

Anyways, Miss Valencia I promise to keep going on this board. You are a wonderful person inside and out. I hope we can work together and I do look forward to talking to you....Dream Team isn't for dreamers ;) it is for Doers. You are a real entrepreneur, Im proud to know you.

Hello Ladies

First I want to thank everyone for the emails and phone calls. What a pleasure it has been to be a service provider to a bunch of wonderful females.

 

I am happy to say that I have just returned from my trip! Vegas is def. land of Hair Extensions. I did some fishing around and I must say, Vegas is full of Hair Addicts :). I fit right in. :rolleyes:

 

I am in training next monday for the So.Cap line. I am ofcourse looking forward to offering this to my clients as a alternative to my services. I am excited about the quality of hair...now I just have to see if it will stand up to the tride and true test.

 

My studio is coming along great, I love to watch DVD's with my clients. Im so zoned into the client I forget that Sex in the City is on, again...so each time it is playing it feels like the first time....TOO FUNNY! DVD box sets are great...

 

Anyways, Questions are always welcomed. I try hard to keep up on my posts and help take the load off of Miss Valencia.

Hello there

Well I wish I had spoke to you sooner. I am happy to say I have just become certified with SO.CAP and think that the concept is wonderful. If you would like me to inform you of the next training seminar I can do that. I will be meeting with the great people who trained me on the 7th of November to do some cross promotions.

I have been doing extensions for years, as with all things in life, you are never done learning and advancing. I wish you the best...hands on experience is also key, I don't suggest simply purchasing a video and then taking on the industry. You may want to contact Valencia on this forum, I do believe she is teaching now. I am not sure of her avail. with new students.

Have a great day!

I order mine via the web. However I order in large amounts. Try wigsforyou.com

you can find them on several sites. Make sure it is not POLY, keratin sticks or in the old days we called them Monkey Bars.

 

Hope this helps. I am worried a bit about your friend doing them, honeslty I hope your hair doesn't damage, I have seen horrible results from people that try and do it without training. :unsure:

Guest cynthia

Thank you for the quick response. I will try that site you suggested. Yeah, my friend put them in two months ago, the bonds are getting sticky, I hope no damage is done whens she takes them out. They looked great, I just wished we would of went with the protein bonds originally. I thought maybe the hair products I use daily interfered with the bond...wish me luck..thanks again..

FYI

also be sure when you are taking them out that your friend doesn't rush as if you do that is when the damage is done.

 

I would also suggest a shampoo "Hair Support", it was developed for Kemo patience and now is on the market and has joined forced with hair extension line (which I don't use nor do I suggest as I have personal experience with them)...anyways, the shampoo is very gentle and doesn't have alchohol. Also promotes growth. I am saying this for Caucasian hair as I don't know from experience with African American hair. If anyone uses it I would love feedback. I know that hair type is dryer than mine...the scalp conditioner is mild enough that it can be used on roots aswell...that said, I still don't put it on my scalp as I don't like to worry about slipage.

 

 

If there are any products out there that you wonderful ladies use for your extensions, please let me know. So far I know of Redken, Hair Support and So Caps own line especially for Extensions.

Hi

Thankyou for your question. Also I am curious who your friend is.

I recently have had a bad experience with a company who I used to purchase Remy hair. My Hair India is the name. UGH, to say the least. At the time I was shopping around for a better prices as they sell their hair for a high price. I have landed two new places, one I am in the midst with joining forces with their company so I will let you know about it at a future date. So for now, I like remyhairtoday.com. I have some samples here. I wish I could tell you more but an order I placed was shipped back for some unknown reason. The lady who owns the company is a fellow Hair Addict, so that always helps.

 

The new "system" is So.Cap. To be honest, I would prefer to only do this type of service on a Caucasian person. A few fantasy colors on any hair BUT for a full head I recomend Remy for African American Hair. So. Cap is European and the hair is finer than Remy. It is also wonderful on my own hair as Remy is a bit thick.

 

Please email me any of your questions and with your friends name. I am trying to give thanks to the referrals I have been receiving.

 

 

 

This is my new site that is in the works so for now it is a basic main page.

 

TY

Thank You for being honest, So-Cap is not good for ethnic women, the hair is not compatible.........And please never tell an African American woman not to oil her hair, it is vital for us to use oil for the health of our hair. We should get our hair orders anyday now, the reason for the delay is due to the severe weather they are having in India, it is Typhoon season for them so they are having some of the same problems that we have in the states with our severe weather, just pray for them.............

Hi Valencia

I can understand your comment about oil BUT how can you put oil on a bond? In the past, bonds slip from oil so I am a bit lost here. I love your advice but I dont' understand. We have spoken about this before about finding products that are low oil...I always tell everyone to keep oil away from the bonds for the obvious reason. Please let me know, you are AFrican American and obviously know more about the slippage on your hair with the keratin....Im excited to have your response.

 

ALSO REGARDING MY ORDER, IT HAD NOTHING TO DO OF THE STORM. I AM AWARE OF THAT. IT WAS AN ORDER THAT WAS ALREADY SHIPPED BUT SENT TO THE WRONG ADDRESS.

WE NEED TO TALK........

 

I have no idea what kind of bond you are using that can't handle oil I ALWAYS OIL MY SCALP AND HAIR, if I don't it will become brittle and break-off, but I understand your confusion because I do tell my clients not to oil their hair before the process because the bond doesn't adhere as well to the hair as it does to clean dry hair but after the application they can oil. Low oil products works well on some but not all there again it depends on the indiviual, I can get away with light oil but my daughter needs the heavy stuff and we both wear fusion. I warned you before you had a bigger problem on your hands.

We use the same product. Try and remember I too have been wearing them and doing them for ten years. I am trained and certified and have documentation stating that oil is not good for fusion bonds. Saying no oil doesn't mean not to condition your hair. I sell shampoo and conditioner in my studio...I do know that if you don't Wash, condition and MOISTURIZE (very important) your hair the extensions do not receive your natural scalp oils and so need to have moisture added every wash. If you don't moisturize your hair extensions they will become brittle and break easily leading to split and ratty ends.

 

As with all clients, no oil products or conditioner before putting the fusion in. It is impossible to find any product out there that doesn't have oil. I have read a post you placed months ago about the same issue. I do believe you are misunderstanding me. That said.

 

The theme of this site is not to “de-bunk” others' opinions on this broad subject, but rather this site is meant to give our customers specific, correct and important information they need to care properly for their new hair extensions.

 

If you would like to talk about this further that would be great but your "remarks" about WARNING ME....are not needed. A discussion yes, everyone has their own way of doing hair. I may be more experienced with Caucasian hair than you and you with African American hair...however as I stated before there are no products that don't contain some type of oil (even min.). I am familiar with the grade of hair you are talking about as it doesnt produce enough sebum...EFA (esential fatty acidss) there are other things other than OIL PRODUCTS you can use. All sorts of EFA vitamins that work internally than externally. Also staying away from Sulfate in your shampoo will help.

In my experience, the KERATIN breaks down and after time and time again it will become sticky. KERATIN is the same product you use.

 

And I have been trained to forward this information on to my clients. And that is why I tell them that. I am educating them the way I have been educated. I also have lost bonds and losened them because I often condition my hair ad my own is very dry and brittle.

 

I find it very interesting that you will make certain comments to me here but yet when I ask you to email me you wont. For the third time...My email is admin@mylongtresses.com. I have talked to various females on the phone Valencia, and I always tell them the same thing...you appear to be a nice lady. But It does appear that I may respect you more than you respect me! I would never diss you on a forum. I have told clients to go to you before as I am not into the competition. I am a Caucasian Hair Expert, I have never made claims to be a African AMerican Hair Expert but have quite a few clients who are and love their hair. Unfortunately I thought we could learn from each other but I guess not.

 

The bellow is taken from notes etc that I have kept on file for several years.

 

Here's How:

1. When brushing, use a soft bristle brush and start from the bottom and gently work your way up.

 

2. Gently tie your hair up while sleeping and never sleep with wet hair.

 

3. Do not attempt to color your own hair extentions. Head to a salon for this procedure.

 

4. Running your fingers through the extensions will help prevent tangling. I also suggest using Boar Bristle or loop brush.

 

5. Do not spray extensions with conditioners or any silicone based products as they can cause the extensions to slip.

 

What About Build-Up and How It happens:

 

Hair extensions can also start to look dull after a time. The cause for this can be by using heavy styling aids or not rinsing well enough.

 

But, what is termed heavy for hair goods, may not be heavy for regular growing hair because of the lack of cuticle (unless you have cuticle or virgin hair). The products we are discussing here should be avoided, and are defined as they are just too heavy for processed hair goods:

 

Oils

 

Waxes

 

Creams

 

Mousses

 

Gels

 

This type of hair needs to be as free of outside products as possible. Allowing the hair to flow freely, without adding anything extra, will give you the best styling advantages. Adding too much of any of these previous products only attracts dirt, and weighs it down and can also losen bonds.

 

I suggest to everyone to use a HYDRATING SHAMPOO THAT STIMULATES THE ROOT AND GROWTH AREA AND ALSO A CONDITIONER enhanced with SILICONE(not base ingredient). There are salon products and other products such as

By allowing a small amount of the waxy silicone type derivative to be left on the hair after it is rinsed, it's purpose it to smooth out and cover over any damaged part of the hair. Use every time you shampoo. And. it is also recommended to use lightly after the use of a deep conditioner, especially if you are having trouble keeping your hair hydrated; this can often do the trick (most hydrator do not contain a coating agent. And since it takes many weeks or months to get your hair healthy after it has been damaged(if the client has processed dry hair), this product can help make it "feel" as if is, and there is nothing wrong with that!

 

 

I have spoken my peace.

I have spoken my peace.

I'm sorry if I offended you but one of your potential clients contacted me in a panic because you told her not to oil her hair and we both know NOW that if she had followed that advice you and that client would have bigger problems to deal with down the line, there, it's on the table. I am here to give the facts and also to protect the client and that has nothing to do with you, I'm sorry but am not going to stop now.. I tell my clients to use an oil free shampoo, also called clarifying, stripping, deep cleansing, before the application and touch-up's but not after. My certification is through the Art Acadamy of Hair Fashions and at the time of my certification that was one of the top schools and both instructors where caucasion women I didn't care because I wanted to learn from the best and they where the best, I am well versed when it comes to all hair types, I am a fusion and haircare expert..Not all fusion bonds are the same just because they have the same base ingredient (keritin). I have worn several types of fusion bond and not all react the same to oils and that is why I don't use them, and to prevent the bond from getting sticky always do a cold water rinse after the shampoo and conditioner is rinsed out. I had to make sure my product was compatible to all hair types whether a client uses oil or not so I doubt if we use the same product. One more thing as for emailing, It is easier for me to reply to an email because I receive so many my email.........hairbyvalencia@yahoo.com

 

I check my email daily reply to as many as I can and then I check the message boards. The rest of my time is spent doing or prepping hair. And remember I am not above mistakes and I expect you to do the same to me and for me to protect the clients.............If you are unsure ask questions, I do.

Im glad you feel that it is on the table.

Honestly Valencia, an email will suffice but to make claims on a forum isn't correct. That person, if having her hair done by me, would have been asked to fill out a form, as I do with all my clients, on the form it has a list of products for ALL HAIR TYPES. There is also a after care sheet, which outlines after care... I will always tell clients to not put oil "directly" on their fusion. That will never change.

 

If that 'person' who contacted you misunderstood...mabye you should ask me first my opinon on this via email before posting something one a forum.

 

When we spoke on the phone we talked about this exact thing. Being trained by Caucasians and having experience with Caucasian hair are two different things.

 

The products I suggest to my clients have enough oil, min, but enough to keep their scalp moisturized. I also suggest vitamins, you know I am into fitness and EFA's can make a huge difference in clients hair, skin and nails.

 

I have heard things also but I don't wish to post them in a public place. How you run your business is your own "business".

 

Good luck.
