We caught up with Louise Bailey, Founder of Extension Professional to find out why she created the brand and her top tips for healthy hair.
What was your inspiration behind creating the brand?
After being in the hair extension industry for many years and with lots of feedback from my clients. I found there was a gap in the market for clip in hair extensions that were easy for clients to put in. Also all the clip ins on the market needed a lot of cutting once brought to blend with the client's natural hair. So with this in mind I decided to design a product that eliminates these issues.
What makes Extension Professional different from other hair extension brands?
Extension Professional is a premium brand created by myself with years of industry knowledge. I am a working hair extensionist, so I constantly know what clients need and how to make sure my products fit correctly with the client’s natural hair.
What is your top tip for maintaining healthy hair?
My top tip for maintaining healthy hair would be to not expose the hair to extreme heat like straightening irons as they burn the hair beyond repair. Also too much damage can be caused by colouring so it's imperative all your colour work is done by a professional to minimise over processing of the hair structure.
What are your favourite products?
My favourite products for hair extensions would be Iles Formula range from Wendy Iles as it is sulphate free.
What do you recommend for looking after your extensions?
Always use a good salon sulphate free shampoo and conditioner. Always comb the conditioner thought the ends of your extensions before rinsing to make sure the hair is hydrated. Always use a nozzle to direct the heat down the hair shaft when blow drying your extensions to keep them smooth and silky and avoid using hair straighteners on hair extensions.
