Yes, however, it is important to remember to take care of extensions carefully. For example, when working shampoo and conditioner into the hair and scalp, please remember to be gentle and work it in more gently than you would regular hair.

Get the Most Out of Washing Your Hair

Everyone wants to have a healthy hair routine and washing your hair correctly is a big part of that. One of the reasons your hair feels so great after a visit to the salon is because the pros know how to wash your hair properly. Because, yes there is a right way to wash your hair! Here are some common mistakes to avoid when washing your hair, so you can get the silky hair of your dreams.

Don’t Shampoo and Condition Your Whole Head

If you’re covering your whole head in shampoo and conditioner then you’re not getting the most out of your shower routine. Washing your hair in sections is the only way to make sure each part of your hair is getting what it needs. Since shampoo is used to clean and cleanse the hair, it only needs to go on your scalp and near your roots where most of the oil and dirt accumulates. As for the conditioner, it’s meant to hydrate and moisturize the drier parts of your hair, such as the midsections and ends.

Don’t Rinse with Hot Water

Everyone loves a hot shower, but the steamy water is doing some damage to your hair. The hot water opens your hair cuticles which will weaken your hair and cause frizz. In addition, if you color your hair or have any type of keratin treatment the hot water will cause it to fade. Instead of hot water, try lukewarm water. And, just before stepping out rinse off with a cool round of water which will shut the cuticle and lock in the moisture!

Don’t Wash Every Day

Most of us know the secret to not wash our hair daily, but less is more here. So, try not to wash every other day even. The professionals say that three times a week should be good for most hair types. If you wash your hair too often, you actually produce more oil. So, let dry shampoo become your new best friend.

Don’t Get to Aggressive With the Scalp

It’s important to massage the shampoo into your scalp to really cleanse your hair but be sure that you don’t scrub too aggressively. Healthy hair starts at your scalp and your hair is weaker when it’s wet, so if you’re too rough you can break and damage your hair at the roots. It can also dry out your scalp and leave it to overproduce oil. A bonus to this, massaging your scalp will boost blood flow and help stimulate hair growth!

Don’t Forget to Brush Before Getting into Shower

We all know to brush our hair after we shower, but what about before? The secret to get the best cleanse is to brush your hair before you wash it. Not only will it detangle your hair ahead of time, but it helps to loosen up the dirt and oil that builds up, which makes it easier to wash out when you’re shampooing.

Don’t Just Pick Any Shampoo

Hair care is similar to skin care, it’s important to identify your hair type and choose the formula that’s best suited for what your hair needs. If your hair is naturally oily, try a purifying shampoo and avoid anything that’s hydrating or moisturizing. If your hair is dry, then hydrating and moisturizing is going to be exactly what you need. Your shampoo can really benefit your hair, so pay attention to what you use.

Don’t Wash Your Conditioner Out Right Away

Shampooing can be a quick massage and rinse, but when it comes to conditioning your hair, you’re going to want to leave it in a little longer to get the full benefit. Don’t condition your roots, always start mid-shaft and work towards the ends of your hair. Timing is the most difficult part here, since you want to leave it on long enough to reap the full benefits of your conditioner but not too long where a residue could build in your hair. The expects recommend 5 minutes, so let your hair condition while you finish up your shower routine and then wash it all out!

How to Advertise Your Extension Business

The best way to grow your extension business is to look into different ways to advertise yourself. Getting your name out there is the only way to attract new customers. Below are some ideas that will help spread word of your work and attract new customers to you.

  1. Social media is prevalent in today’s society so why not embrace all that it has to offer. It’s almost a necessity in order to show off your extension work and connect with the public. Look into the ads/offers on Facebook or direct channel with potential customers on Twitter.
  2. Get your name out to followers by starting a blog. This will allow you to connect to consumers more directly as well as improving your chances of being found in search engines.
  3. Look into taking advantage of YouTube. It’s a free way to distribute promotional videos where you can get creative and show potential clients your personality.
  4. Be sure to give business cards to customers. This way, if someone they know needs a recommendation or compliments them on their hair, they can easily pass your information on.
  5. Post regularly to your social media accounts in order to get likes and shares. If you use #dibiasehairusa we will feature your work on our own page, allowing it to be shared with even more people.
  6. After an appointment, send a thank you note to your client and ask them to leave you a review. When someone goes to look for a good extensionist, they will see your name with great reviews and then will be more inclined to choose you.

All-Natural Frizzy Hair Remedies:

Frizz happens, and we know how frustrating it can be. Of course, there are different expensive treatments that you can use to tame those locks, but there are also some all-natural remedies that you can make with some of the ingredients you have around your home which work just as good! Here are some remedies that smooth the outer layer of hair while repairing it for healthy growth, improving shine and making the hair more manageable.


  • One Banana
  • Small Bowl
  • Fork
  • 1 tsp. sweet almond oil

Slice the banana in half, place into the small bowl and mash with the fork. Add the sweet almond oil and blend together. Massage the mask into your hair starting at the ends and working your way up. Twist the hair up into a bun and let sit for 30 minutes. Then, remove hair from the bun and wash as normal.


  • 1 tb. Coconut Oil
  • 2 tb. Honey
  • Small dish
  • 2 drops of lavender essential oil
  • 2 drops of rosemary essential oil

Combine coconut oil and honey in a small dish. Add the lavender and rosemary essential oils. Massage mixture into your hair and scalp. Wrap with a warm towel and let sit for 20 minutes before washing as usual.



-1 egg

-I tb. Olive oil

-Small dish

Whisk together the egg and olive oil in a small dish. Apply the mixture to your hair starting and the bottom and moving to the top. Let sit for 20-30 minutes before washing as usual.

Helpful Notes:

-Cold water has a calming effect of frizzy hair. When shampooing your hair, use warm water to open the pores and exfoliate while removing your scalp from oils. When you’re ready to rinse the conditioner, use cooler water so you don’t strip the hair of its natural oils. The cold-water closes cuticles and pores. Helping to seal moisture in your hair.

-Skip your usual shampoo and rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar. Let it stand for 30 seconds before rinsing with cold water. Follow with a conditioner.

-If you’re not a fan of apple cider vinegar, use unflavored carbonated water. Shampoo and condition as usual, and rinse with carbonated mineral water. It’s low pH levels work to reduce the frizz and seals in moisture.

Summer Hair Care

With the summer quickly approaching, it’s time to think about some things you can do to protect your hair and hair extensions from all the damage that can happen during the season. Here at Di Biase Hair USA, we have a couple of tips that we would like to share so you can take care of your hair and enjoy the sun without worry. Since our hair extensions are made of 100% natural human hair, you can treat them as you would your regular hair with these suggestions.

Swimming Damage

  • What’s summer without taking a refreshing dip in the pool? Of course, it’s something that can’t be avoided but the chlorine can wreak havoc on your hair. So be sure to clarify your hair after swimming because the chlorine will strip the hair of its natural protective oils.

Cut It

  • Start the summer with a trim to get rid of those split ends and as a bonus you get to start the season with that fresh cut feeling.

Sun Damage

  • Be careful not to lay in the sun too long, and if you do (we all know how relaxing that can be) be sure to shield your strands from it by wearing a wide brimmed hat of some sort. The sun can damage and fade out your color and well as dry out your hair.

Wash It Out

  • Switch to moisturizing shampoos and conditioners since you will most likely be washing your hair more often to deal with all the sweat and grime that comes along with the hot summer weather.


  • Give your hair a break during the season and skip the hot tools and blow dryer. Let’s embrace the beach waves with a sea-salt spray or get on the messy mermaid tail braid trend. The options are endless and the best part, they are all heat free and take less time to make happen.

Fusion, Tape In, Or Both?

Fusion or Tape In?

Everyone has different hair, so what kind of extension is right for your client? Here is some information that might help you decide.

Sticker (Tape In) hair is the only system of extensions that you can complete in under an hour. There is no use of special equipment and the best part, they are reusable. This extension type lasts 4-6 weeks depending on how well it’s taken care of. One of the most convenient options, but it shouldn’t be used on fine hair. Also, why not try mixing some of each application type? 


Our Fusion Extensions are ideal for thin hair or anyone looking to add some volume. If your client has fine hair that can’t handle the weight of extensions, this is the application you want to use. They last 4-6 months depending on how well they are taken care of and how fast the hair grows. An added bonus, it comes in 1G as well, to give your client an even thicker and fuller look.

How to Make the Most of Your Extension Business

Within the past few years, the hair extension business has really taken off. A variety of celebrities from Ariana Grande and her famous ponytail to Beyonce and her always gorgeous locks are rocking this trend, leading the way for any woman to achieve the hair that they dreamed of. As a stylist, you can take advantage of this service and expand your business and what you can offer to your clients.

Every salon has clients who could benefit from extensions, whether due to thinning hair, or from a desire to add length or volume. So, why is it so hard to make a go of it? Why do salons and stylists have a difficult time adding and keeping extension clients? Attached is an article from our COO Dale Aho, which provides insight into the cause and means to improve retention rates by only making some small changes in approach.




By: Dale Aho, COO, Di Biase Hair Extensions USA

Women love hair extensions. We can walk any busy street or through a mall or into a restaurant and find countless women, young and old, who will jump at an extension makeover. There is also a need.  Every salon has clients who could benefit from extensions, whether because of thinning hair, or from a desire to add length or volume. One would expect that hair extensions would be a staple of a typical salon’s business, almost a routine or mainstream service.

So why is it so hard to make a go of it? Why do salons and stylists have a difficult time adding and retaining extension clients? This article provides insights into the cause and, more importantly, the means to improve retention rates by small changes in approach.

Customers of any business are influenced by their “pain points,” i.e., specific problems that negatively influence their decision to purchase.  Pain points can vary, from price to customer service to results to the time and hassle that is involved.  More particularly, we know that there is a sense of pain each time we purchase something – it’s called the “pain of paying.”  A customer feels considerably less pain when the charge is not seen, or the payment is small. Businesses, like Uber, remove the pain of paying by eliminating the need to pay on the spot.  Among other companies, it is common to break a larger charge into monthly segments.  It’s less painful (more affordable) to pay a smaller amount more often even though the total is the same.

Within the extensions world, two points of pain are obvious:  1) an application of a full head of fusion extensions can range in price from $800 to $1500 and higher and 2) it can easily take 3 hours or more at every sitting.  Unless the client is well off enough to manage the payment easily, and has an abundance of time, clients will inevitably drop out or they will be deterred in the first place.  While many stylists may accept these losses as inevitable, they do not have to be.  Adopting a strategy to reduce the pain of paying, as well as the problem of time, can greatly increase the odds that clients will keep coming back.

Michael Baker, owner of Michael Warren Salon in Elkhart, Indiana, has maintained a thriving extension practice for over 2 decades, as well as serving as a master national educator for several extension companies.  In any given week, Michael will do multiple applications, most of which involve returning clients and many of whom have been on the books for many years.  Michael’s philosophy on adding and retaining extension clients is enlightening and directly pertinent to reducing the pain of paying.

Michael counsels that the biggest mistake in approaching new clients is going for a full head of hair right away.  The price will frighten many clients even though they might be wonderful candidates for extensions.   Rather, he uses the tactic of a few strands at a time.  Typically, he will lay out his color ring and allow clients to see and feel it.  Where there is curiosity, he may suggest trying a single strand to see the effect in the hair.  He may ask simple questions such as what the client likes best or least about her hair.  He says it all is in placement.  Michael cites as an example an inverted bob, where there isn’t enough hair or volume on the side of the head.  An easy solution is to use some pieces, maybe a single pack, and apply the extensions simply to get the volume desired.  The key is in keeping the amount of hair and, therefore, the price within limits that are easy to digest.  These clients tend to keep coming back again and again.

Of course, many clients do want to receive a full head of extensions, whether on the first occasion or after becoming accustomed to the look.  For these women, who may be initially enthusiastic, it’s still important to realize that the cost will eventually begin to hit home, and that the pain of paying may become too much.  A typical approach will involve using 140 to 160 strands, in a session that may take 3 hours, and result in a charge of $1000 or more.

Michael actively guards against this eventuality in two ways.  First, he will use fewer bonds, perhaps 100 rather than 140 or 160.  Through careful placement and from experience, he knows he can achieve a look that the client will appreciate.  This allows him to keep both the time and also the hair cost to a more reasonable amount.

However, realizing that even the lower cost, when paid as a single sum, will become burdensome, Michael avoids replacing an entire head all at once.  Hair grows at different rates and bonds do not need replacing all at the same time.  A number of bonds will actually remain in good shape long after the date that would be used (typically 4 to 6 months) if the bonds were to be replaced as an entire set. So, to account for that circumstance, Michael will use the opportunity of the client’s regular service visit to remove and replace only the bonds that actually need it, possibly in a section where the hair has grown out more quickly.  Eventually, by this rotation method, the client’s entire set of extensions will be replaced but it will happen in a way that is much more manageable financially.  The added benefit is that neither the client nor the stylist has had to set aside a large portion of the day.

When performing extension services, it is not necessary for the stylist or salon to reduce their pricing or profitability.  That would be self-defeating.  To the contrary, it is important to keep the price at a high enough level to provide an excellent return on the investment of learning extensions.  A method of multiplying the cost of the hair by 2 or 3 and adding a service fee helps to stabilize the cost and assure a fair return for the stylist.  By whatever means used, the goal is to keep the cost within reason for the client but also assure that the stylist is rewarded for her or his work.

In conclusion, retaining extension clients requires recognition of what causes them to leave.  In most cases, it will come down to the cost being too much to continue to absorb.  In order to protect against that happening, the wise stylist will use fewer strands, at least initially, and maintain extensions on an ongoing basis, rather than getting into a pattern of replacing a full head at a time.  By working in strands and sections, the stylist can keep the per session cost much more manageable.  This can reduce the pain of paying and improve the chances that the client will remain on the books for an extended period.
