How to Remove Bond Hair Dreams Extensions

You have invested a lot of time and money into your hair extensions with the Hairdreams bonded system. The thermo-elastic bond system developed by Hairdreams makes it one of the more comfortable to wear and natural-looking extension bonds available. When removing your extensions, the company recommends that you find a Hairdreams salon. Doing the removal on your own takes care and patience. Improper hair extension removal can lead to hair breakage and split ends, or cause stress to the hair that can lead to future damage.

Lay out all of your working tools in an area that allows you enough space so that you can see them while you are working.

Part your hair into four sections: right front and back, and left front and back. Using your sectioning comb, part the hair down the middle of the head from front hairline to back nape area and secure the two sections with sectioning clips. Using your sectioning comb, make a parting line from top crown down to the middle of the ear on each side. Secure each section with sectioning clips.

Use the Hairdreams removal solution, if you are lucky enough to have a bottle. If not, use 100 per cent pure acetone. Pour approximately 59.1ml into a glass bowl.

Separate a 1/2-inch section from the back, nape area of your head. Secure the remaining hair in the larger section out of the way with sectioning clips.

Soak a small corner of a towel in bond remover. Lift the extension bonds off of the scalp and dab the towel on the bonds, making sure to cover all of the bonds in remover. Let the remover set for one minute to soak in. The bond remover will soften the bond, making it easier to bend and remove. Reapply the remover as needed.

Clamp the bond in the jaws of a pair of pliers and press the bond flat. Repeat a couple times until the bond breaks free from the hair. Slide the bond off the hair, and use the detangling comb to remove any remaining bond.

Continue Steps 5 and 6 as you work your way up the back of the head in 1/2-inch sections. Move to the sides of the head, working from bottom to top in 1/2-inch sections.

Brush through the hair with the cushion brush, making sure all of the remaining bond material has been removed. Cleanse the hair with a moisturising shampoo, condition and rinse. Blow-dry and style the hair.

Tip

The hair should not be dripping removal solution, but the bond should be thoroughly soaked in it. Plan a couple hours for a full head of extensions to be removed; take your time and be gentle with the hair.

Warning

The glass bowl you use should be clear glass, not painted.
