to clip the rest up and out the way.

4. Part off a small, square-shaped section of hair. The section of natural hair should match the thickness of the extension strand.

5. Take the section of hair and pull it through the loop of the Loop Tool.

6. Slide one hair extension bead

from the Loop Tool's base up toward the hair. Thread the bead on to the head and pull the Loop Tool.

7. Place the extension strand into the bead. Keep the hair flowing straight down, so the hair lays naturally.

8. Clamp the bead with the Hair Extension Tool

in the center and on each side for the strongest hold. Keep the hair extension flush with the top of the bead.

9. Follows steps 4 through 8. Work up the scalp in horizontal rows, installing on every strand per row. Work up until you reach the horseshoe section of the head.

10. For the sides of the head, do a thick hair application. Do not skip any rows. Follow the same procedure as described above for threading the beads onto hair strands and clamping the beads down. Remember to leave a perimeter of hair free near the hairline to hide the connection points.

Removal

1. Start at the nape of the neck, at the bottom row of extensions.

2. Remove each bead by unclamping it with the Hair Extension Tool.

Maintenance

Depending on natural hair growth, I-Link extensions can last 3 to 6 months. When tightening, use new hair extension beads.

Don't reuse the beads.

When tightening extensions, unclamp each bead and remove the extension from hair. Organize each extension strand upon removal so that you can reattach each strand in the same position as before. This will ensure that you will not have to reblend the extensions.
