Di Volek, Head Stylist and Director of Training, CREATOR of Dreamcatchers. “Di brings to DreamCatchers over twenty years of hairstyling experience – she has her Master’s in Tricology and trained under Toni & Guy in London – as well as over seven years of exclusive hair extension experience. She led a chain of salons in South Africa that specialized in hair extensions, often with a client wait list of over three months!” (via DC website) These extensions are a truly a cut above their competitors.
NO GLUES (Keratin bonds, protein bonds, basically any kind of “bond”, waxes, weaves, etc) which translates to NO DAMAGE TO YOUR HAIR. I repeat NO DAMAGE!
Dreamcatchers is also an investment. You keep the hair for years before you by more- UNLESS you want a new color! that’s your choice. So all you pay for in future visits is adjustments and re-fusions, I’ll explain those later.With other brands: Great lengths, SoCap, Cinderella to name a few; you by hair with every touchup- that could mean $750-1500+ every 8 weeks! and if you’re a fast grower- every 6 weeks! That’s ridiculous. No wonder only extensions were part of the “lifestyles of the rich and famous (cue:Good Charlotte)
“Micro-cylinder™ technology: clean, easy and non-damaging according to the Dreamcatchers web site: Your time in chair is two hours-ish for a full head application and return adjustment visits are approximately one hour. Compare THAT to a 6+hour visit!
Now let’s talk about the hair for a second: The best quality hair extensions in the world! 100% EUROPEAN Human hair. NOT Indian or Chinese that has to be stripped to almost raw and recolored to get anything lighter than med brown. THEN they have to add silicone on top of silicone on top of silicon just to make it look nice again. Another reason why the hair doesn’t and CAN’T last years. Dreamcatchers gets their blonds from Scandinavia, browns from Europe (i.e.Italy) and African curly textures from the Di’s home country- South Africa. It just makes SO MUCH MORE SENSE- how come it’s taken so long for people to figure this out?
Technique and maintenance program is amazing. Check out the link above for more info, or call me of course. But it reminds me of jewelry making. You’re “crimping” the hair with your own natural hair using micro-cylinders. Let’s say I make a mistake when putting them in and take too much of your natural hair? I just uncrimp and recrimp! NO DAMAGE! I LOVE IT!
AND YOU CAN GET SO CREATIVE! use different colors to create dimension through high-lights and low-lights and DON’T color your own hair, or maybe just the top and thereby saving it from possible damage.
