So, my profile pic is of the hair after 2 weeks (and after sending it back and having it "refurbished"). Totally struggling with Hot Heads Hair Extensions because as compared with the TEASE OR DLUX hair I've used on myself and clients for years (in salons in Montecito and Santa Barbara, CA), this hair does not meet or exceed expectations. It's 2x the $ of the other brands and the company absolutely refused (citing an endless and often goofy list of excuses)---very concerning. I'm a business person/ psychotherapist in my "real" life but have done hair for eons and feel I can see through bs.....don't recommend HOT HEADS but if you're interested in super high quality hair (don't know if I would've found Hot Heads sub-par had I not used really high quality hair (that didn't shrink and break) Look to the above brands. Literally my economist husband called me out on the hair being "nappy"---ick!

I love the tape hair extensions. I have tried hot headz and some other brands and they were ok but I just found this ones from Zystal.com and they are great. The tape lasts a long time and the hair doesn't get frizzy or anything like that. It's worked the best for me so far and I don't plan on changing. Give them a try.  Embarrassed

I have used Hot Heads extensions on clients and on myself.  I liked the attachment, but the hair was terrible quality, just like most people have stated above.
 
I did try Hair Addictionz, and I like them much better.  They are more durable and the hair is much better quality.

Hi xoxo,
 
I have had hot heads hair extensions in now for about a month. I love them!! There is just one  draw back. One is being that the tape does not hold very well on the front area of my head ( around my face). They  came off about after a week of wearing them. The others on the rest of my head are on and I beleive will be there until I go back to the salon. Do you think maybe because its closest to the hairline? What do you think that I can do to prevent that? Other than that I love them and I have tried almost every hair extension method out there. This is the best one by far.
As far as the quality of the hair, its not the best out there, but it is very good quality hair to me. I am happy with the productThumbs%20Up

Actually... Hair Addictionz ripped off Hotheads concept and at one point was actually purchasing their hair and reselling it.  The company Alan Thomas aka Hotheads has been involved in the hair replacement industry for over 20+ years and has great relation with the factories that manufacture their products.  The quality of Hotheads hair is unsurpassed, the blonde colors are actually originated from natural grey hair so there is no high lifting involved, the process is extremely slow and gentle.  Hotheads is 100% human remi-hair, designed with no returns. That means the cuticle is left on the hair and when hand placed on the adhesive strip the strands are individually layed in the same direction.  Hotheads are the only seamless method and all others are imposters.  In fact Hair Addictionz is extremely generic and only found in exceptionally lower end salons, because of the lack of hair quality, and meager system.  Hotheads hair extensions is a global company and will remain on top with the one and only revolutionary hair extension break through.

Hello,
I am sorry to hear all the problems you are having with Hot Heads.  Unfortuneately I know the whole matting hair thing all to well. The concept  is great but the hair is horrible!.  I have been using Hair Addictionz Hair Extensions which hair quality is premium!  I have even permed the hair and turned out beautiful! For stylist the classes are free! They will fly to your salon no charge.  The hair last forever.  My clients dont put any leave in conditioner in their hair and it combs through like silk.  The people their are so easy  to work with they even sell half packs and quarter packs.  It's great! For you all that may be interested in the Hair Addictionz Hair Extensionz you can go to the website link removed  or call them directly their customer service it awesome.  Good Luck and Happy Hair!!

I am a hairstylist since 2000.  I have been doing hair extensions for about 6 years.  I am certified Great Lengths and have tried many various companys and techniques.  As a professional stylist and hair extension specialist I am so thankful to Hotheads for creating an ingenious product!  Not only am I not slaving behind the chair for hours...my clients arent in the salon for hours either.  My clients love Hotheads and the stylists I work with that have never done extensions are able to add the additional service to their speciality, because it is so easy!  Hotheads is so gentle on the hair and scalp, they are so thin and comfortable!  There are so many different techniques to create highlights and lowlights so naturally its amazing!  The quality of the hair is excellent, and the best thing is there is no equiptment or contracts, I only paid $99.00 for my training, its unbelievable!  As I read some previous post of people not having a wonderful experience I knew I just had to comment.  Unfortunetly I believe that they have not had proper training or maitenence instructions, or it sounds like they are with other hair extension companies.  Either way its unfortunate they did not experience what a revolution Hotheads is today in the hair extension industry.  I would recommend this technique to any stylist and every client! yay hotheads! By the way you can contact them directly at 1-800-327-7971

I'm wearing Hot heads now and haven't had any of the problems that the other posters have mentioned.  This is my eighth week wearing them, with a maintenance at the six week mark to have them rotated and moved back to the base of my scalp.

The hair is great, not top of the line but better than many of the other lines I've tried.  So much easier to sleep on than extensions using locks or fusion. And they brush out easily if you start from the ends and work up.  I also use their recommended brand of shampoo and balsam to keep it soft and shiny.
The color and texture match my hair beautifully and it's impossible for the average person to even know I'm wearing extensions.  I love them and can't imagine using another line now.

Well I have them and wish I didn't. What they don't tell you is ....

In 2 weeks the quality of the hair is frizzy, dry and after using 5x the amount of "special conditioners" the hair does not get soft again without a ceramic Iron and lots of  "Skinny Serum" (amazing stuff paul mitchel)!
They tangle, mat, and look like I bought 5" of somebody's "split ends and frizzes".  In the first 2 weeks 4 pieces of my extensions fell out! They don't tell you that as your hair grows out..  the corners of the tape gets rough and the "strips of gluey tape" act as little "razor blades"! Actually cutting/sawing your hair off at the scalp.

I put them in for an extended vacation in the US, and by the 4 th week after I had them in ,   1/3 of my entire head of extensions fell/ pulled out,  they are NOT something you can easily fix yourself. The "tape, adhesive and solvent" to get them out and re position them, are proprietary and you can't buy them at any beauty salon or store. I am 4 weeks with my $$$$ Extentions and I am in TEXAS and I can't find ANY SALONS that even know what Hot Heads are! After searching HOURS on the net for someone that could Fix This Mess, I wound up here and decided to post so perhaps to keep someone else from being 4000 miles away from their Own Salon and looking and feeling like a molting goat!   They are not the "cutting edge" but the edges do cut (my hair)!

I spent a lot of time speaking to the company of hot heads. I have your same problem. They told me that they are not to be used in the bang area or the hairline. I would reccomend letting your hair grow a bit on top and then looking into "Hair dreams". You can call them to find a salon in your area.

I am a hair stylist myself but had another fellow stylist put them in for me. I myself, did not have a great experience with them. They seemed very frizzy and difficult to style. I had them in for 1 week and they started to come out. I had to take them out myself w/ alcohol. They came right out w/ just a q-tip soaked in alcohol. I had a difficult time sleeping with them also, they seemed to pull my hair a lot. They pieces seem to be too wide and made it difficult to wear up. I felt like I could barely move them around, and definatley couldn't use a brush very well. The "extensions" hair brush is simply a 100% boars hair brush, which doesn't go through my texture of hair very well. I have fine hair. They didn't lay quite right and even when I used my $300 100% ceraminc flat iron, they still weren't smooth and silky. I reccomend "Hair Dreams" although they are applied differently (by a keratin bond). I have found them to be the best quality. All in all I spent about $200 for 12 pieces that lasted one week. So far, I am not a big fan of hot heads and will not be using them again.

Unfortunately after about a month ore so the Hot Heads start to draw up on your heads. They are definately a lower quality line. They are also more like wear and toss they are not reuseable for long term .  If you are looking for similar, good quality and long term go to www.hairaddictionz.com   Star
