Should I Use b3 Ionic Extension Cleanser on New Extensions?
Only in cases where the extensions have an excessively heavy coating or residue that is causing the bond or adhesive not to anchor securely would you use Ionic Extension Cleanser.
What If I Am Performing a Color Service on Extensions?
First, you will color or lighten the extensions to the desired level. After rinsing, you will spray b3 Ionic Extension Cleanser onto damp extensions and massage until a rich lather forms,
and then rinse thoroughly. Lightly towel dry extensions and spray with b3 Ionic Extension Refresh. Comb through from rooted tips to ends and completely dry. Proceed with installation.
If you are performing a fashion color service, you will cleanse with Ionic Cleanser following the instructions above. Once extensions have been completely rinsed and dried, you will apply your direct dye pigment according to manufacturer instructions. Once direct dyes have been rinsed, spray b3 Ionic Extension Refresh onto lightly towel-dried extensions, comb through, and completely dry. Proceed with installation.
Why Do Extension Clients Need to Use b3 Extension Repair Shampoo and b3 Extension Repair Conditioner?
When it comes to maintaining healthy natural-looking extensions, sulfate-free and color-safe care aren't enough. Improper care combined with external factors can cause adhesives and bonds to slip and extension cuticles to lift, creating a line of demarcation between natural hair and wefts as well as matting and damage. b3 Extension Repair Shampoo and b3 Extension Repair Conditioner utilize a breakthrough bond-building technology to prevent breakage at the anchor while prolonging a seamless look between move-up and reinstallation appointments. What's more, these formulas prevent bonds from slipping as natural lipids restore vitality, helping to increase the life of extensions up to two months.
What Type of Extensions Can b3 Extension Repair System Be Used On?
The b3 Extension Repair System is compatible with all manufacturer Remy human hair wefts as well as all anchoring techniques including, tape ins, k-tip, sew-in, beaded, and clip-on.
What Should I Charge for Move Up Appointments Using b3 Extension Repair?
On average, extension specialists are adding $25 to move up and reinstallation tickets. Preparing extensions with Ionic Cleanser before installation ensures that all product buildup, hard water deposits, and pollutants are completely removed. You'll see a noticeable improvement in your chosen anchoring method, extension color will look more vibrant, and your clients will notice that extensions are more secure and natural looking between move up appointments.
How Should I Promote the Ionic Extension Refresh to My Extension Clients?
To ensure every client properly cares for their extensions at home, we recommend bundling the cost of b3 Ionic Extension Refresh with the first installation. After prepping extensions with Ionic Extension Cleanser, use a new bottle of Ionic Extension Refresh to seal the cuticle, detangle, and cut drying time. Hand the bottle to your client at the end of the service and instruct them to use it onto clean damp hair and comb through to help blend extensions and natural hair, eliminate matting, and keep extensions looking healthy and new.
Can the b3 Extension Repair System Be Used on Wigs and Clip-On Extensions?
Yes. b3 Extension Repair System has been shown to help noticeably improve the longevity of human Remy hair lace front wigs, halos, clip-on bangs, and ponytails while also helping to refresh all shades, colors, tones, and fashion colors.
