A: It is important that you explain to your client how to care for the extensions to ensure the longest life possible.

If you have a client with very fine hair make sure that you use the right amount of their own hair, using to small of a portion of hair will cause it to pull out. Also, if the client colors their own hair it is very important for them to follow your instructions. If all the instructions are followed by the client they should last 3-4 months.
