Hiding Hair Extension Attachment Points

Hiding Extension Tracks:

Learn how to hide extension tracks that have gotten to close to part lines or cowlicks.

Items Needed:
Dollylocks Antimicrobial Dread Silkomb

1. Pick up the section of hair above the problem track.
2. Carve off a small section just above the track and clip the rest of the hair out of the way.
3. Backcomb the underside of the section - this will give a bit of lift.
4. Backcomb the topside - this will compact it and flatten the teasing. Smooth the hair so the section lays flat.
5. Fan the rest of the hair over the section and use hairspray as needed.
6. Repeat as needed for other problem areas.

    Fantastic technique !

    I have baby fine, straight, silky hair.
    My cowlick extends about 2 inches below my crown line.

    My extensions are tape in, 2 inches wide.

    Would it be possible to tape over the cowlick, just below the crown line, after smoothing the hair underneath? Then tease the hair above as demonstrated in your video?

    My other problem is that my hair will not hold a tease unless I plaster it with hair spray. Then spray my crown, which makes the top of my head look like "helmet hair ?.

    Any suggestions for my situation?

      You can definitely try it. It would be hard to say if it would work for sure - it couldn't hurt though. For backcombing, if you've never tried a little wonder teasing brush - it is so amazing. It makes a huge difference. When you do the backcombing, you want to visually smooth the top layer so that it looks like its laying normally (even though its not). Then try not to push the top layer down after you spray it - that can make it look too uniform and helmety too. :)

    Any thing to do about shiny tape? The tape on my extensions is very shiny and does show sometimes through my hair.

      The only thing you can really do is to try to dull the shine. You can try gently buffing (aka putting small scratches it) with a nail file.
      There really isn't any magic solution for shiny tapes that I can think of.
      I really like our tapes (I have some in right now!) - the tops are very small and thin and have a matte finish.
