Two weeks after ZIP LOXX HAIR EXTENSIONS has been applied, you will notice that the mechanism has naturally moved away from the scalp, making the client aware of the adjustment period.

How do I properly remove ZIP LOXX HAIR EXTENSIONS from the package?
To remove your ZIP LOXX HAIR EXTENSIONS Hair Extensions from the plastic card, begin by using the pad of your thumb to flip open the first prong. Once you have pulled the first prong open, continue to open each prong by gently pulling apart the mechanism with one hand and securing it with the other. This will help prongs pop open smoothly and minimize any damage to the ZIP LOXX HAIR EXTENSIONS mechanism. Once all of the hair wefts are properly removed, we highly recommend bending the plastic a few times making it more flexible and user friendly and most importantly, ready for installation.
Tip: Using a blowdryer for 5-10 seconds on the hair band slightly warms the plastic and helps loosen the prongs resulting in an easier removal process.
