Hair Extensions for Cancer Survivors

Xtend Yourself is not just our name, it is our motto, and we try to live by that motto every day.

  • Extend yourself and your knowledge to others.
  • Extend a helping hand.
  • Extend your time towards others who can make use of it.
  • Extend your talent and gifts to those who need it.

You have options. You aren’t tied to wearing scarves or wigs if you choose not to. This procedure is not just limited to cancer survivors! This is an amazing way for ANYONE to take charge of what and who they see in the mirror. If you have had hair-loss: thinning due to hormonal imbalances, auto-immune disorders, or even a really bad decision to get that pixie you thought you always wanted and then realized you didn’t…we CAN help.

Ensuring Long Term Success

To ensure long-term success and your satisfaction, your hair should be at least 2-3 inches long and we will examine your hair follicles to ensure they are strong enough to handle the extra weight. We will also teach you how to effectively care for your extensions between visits and be available to you for healthy hair and scalp checks every month.

The hair we apply may be reused for up to 1 year with proper care and maintenance adding small amounts of additional hair as needed during each tune-up visit.

Your initial or new install service includes:

  1. Custom color of your existing hair
  2. Mild and gentle frizz tamer to keep your existing hair soft and smooth for the three months of installation.
  3. Extension hair
  4. Professional installation
  5. Custom blending of colors to suit you and only you
  6. Customized cut and style
  7. Training on how to properly care for your new, long, flowing locks
  8. Monthly healthy hair and scalp checks (15 – 20 min) to ensure the health of your hair and scalp and to replace any bonds that may have slipped out.
  9. Maintenance kit – you will leave the salon with everything you will need to keep your hair, scalp and extensions looking and feeling amazing.

Tune-up appointments should be scheduled every 3 months for the continued health of your hair and scalp.

Your tune-up appointment includes:

  1. Color of your new growth
  2. Mild and gentle frizz tamer as necessary
  3. Methodical removal, move up and reattachment of your existing extensions
  4. Re-attachment of any bonds that have slipped out
  5. Addition of new hair as needed (up to 20% of all bonds)
  6. Trim of natural hair as necessary to maintain healthy grow out

Any products you are in danger of running out of should be purchased at this time. They are not included in the cost. All products included in your initial install kit are mandatory use. If you deviate from using these products, we cannot guarantee the longevity of the install or the lifespan of the hair.

Please note, all new install days are LONG…. We estimate between 8-12 hours depending on the length of your own hair (the shorter the hair the longer it takes), whether your hair requires the mild and gentle frizz tamer, and color service necessary to complete your look.

For tune-up days plan on 5-8 hours in the salon. (New install days can be broken up into two shorter days, back to back, if you feel you can’t handle a day that long.)

Please don’t hesitate to call or email us with all your questions. If you know someone who could benefit from this service and would like to be an angel donor please reach out to us and we will work with you. If you are an agency or ministry that would like to help us help you to provide this service to someone we are at your service.

Please plan on sharing 3-5 photos of your hair that made you feel your very best. We will do everything we can to recreate that look and feeling for you.

If you are preparing to start your journey through chemotherapy and would like to preserve your own hair for use, we would be honored to do that for you. Call and ask us how.
