The Tips are made of a lightweight, flexible PU which is shaped like a bottle neck. This 'fans' the hair to create a natural hair fall thus preventing a 'strandy' look.
Perfectly flat they cant be felt, even when running a flat palm down the back of the head, making them extra comfortable to wear.

The Ultra Lock is a very small powder coated copper ring which is oval in shape,
The earring backs demonstrate the small size.
how are ultra tips fitted?
A small section of the natural hair is threaded through a looped tool loaded with Ultra Locks. The hair is threaded through the ring. & the tiny bottle tip is placed inside the lock and clamped flat with a pair of specially designed hair extension pliers. They are applied in neat rows 1cm from the scalp to allow the natural hair to move freely without tension.
during wear / hair growth
Your natural hair will continue to grow whilst wearing Ultra Tips. The rate of growth will vary client to client. Your hair will also continue its natural shedding cycle. The hairs which would usually be found in your hair brush or plughole will remain trapped inside the lock.
These shed hairs can be recognised as loose unattached hairs with a tiny white 'dot' on the end.
This is NORMAL and no cause for alarm.
With correct aftercare your Ultra Tips will last for 12 months
+ (Regular refits required)
Ultra Tips are easily removed by a professional. The lock is opened using specialist pliers. The Extension simply slides out.
The build up of natural shed hair is gently teased apart & brushed out.
The amount of shed hair will vary person to person. It can appear to be a large amount but this is 8-12 weeks worth of hair which would have naturally fallen. If collected the hair from your hair brush over the same period you would be surprised at the amount.
Your hair may feel thinner as you will have become accustomed to the extra volume & weight of the added extension hair. It may take a little while to adjust. This is also normal & it will be exactly as it was prior to extension wear . We monitor the natural hair at refits to ensure their are no adverse changes.
n this image you can clearly see the natural shedding which had been contained within the locks. Also present is residue of dry shampoo which was sitting on top of the locks.
Ultra Tips are completely reusable & require refitting between 6- 12 weeks depending on your root density, natural shedding & growth rate.
We fully remove the extensions, wash cut & blow-dry your natural hair to ensure it remains in excellent condition then refit the extensions and trim and style them too.
In this image the natural shed hair has been brushed away. You can see where the locks were positioned and the hair is still in healthy condition. It is now ready for washing and preparation for the Ultra Tips to be refitted using new Ultra Locks.
