Hair Extensions After Medical Hair Loss

Product Used: Complete Starter Kit with 18 inch Straight ManeMaxx® Extension Hair in colors Light Brown with Dirty Blonde Highlighting Hair
Hair Extension Experience: Prior to learning ManeMaxx® for the first time, I had Seamless Skin Weft Extensions. The wefted part of the hair is made from a polyurethane really thin flat strip. It appears to look like it is growing from the head. However my extensions also had the double sided tape and then hair glue was used to attach the weft to my own hair.  Having longer hair was nice but THE GLUE! Taking them off required me to use a solution that was very strong and damaging. THEN after  the weft came off there was glue left behind on my hair in the exact shape of a strip of tape! I had to then use a strong citrus solution to remove the hair and a lot of my own hair came off with it.


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions because my hair was first shaved off in a long line where an incision was made for surgery.  Then two colorists (one new and one experienced) ruined my hair. I had to have it colored 4 times in a month to correct and re-correct mistakes. This left me with horrible hair and I had to have a lot cut off. I had been growing my hair out for 3 years! My goal had been to have waist length hair by the time I entered my 40s. Well, so much for that. But now I have better looking hair than I could have ever grown myself. Looks natural too.

I also wanted something affordable, that looked natural and would not damage my already compromised hair and I can't believe how affordable GOOD hair extensions can be! I thought I would never have strand by strand because how could I do it myself? And I was told my hair was too damaged to withstand it. And even if I could I could not afford to spend $1500 to do it! And now I do and it did not break me. I'll never use anything else again!

After losing so much hair due to having a tumor removed from my brain last year, (benign thank god!) I then had TWO colorists damage my hair to the point of no return, I was left with thin, thin damaged hair that had to be cut. Too short for my tastes. I thought I would be stuck that look for years. I went to glued wefts with made my hair even worse! I then found ManeMaxx® when I was reading through hair extension information on Hair Boutique. ManeMaxx® is such a wonderful method that really anyone can do.

I really thought I would never be able to have strand by strand because of the level of difficulty doing it myself or the exorbitant cost of that type of method. Not only can I have healthy LOOKING hair but this allows me to grow out the damaged hair i have already and keep it chemical free but any color I choose. Even if you did not care for long hair but wanted only chemical free color, this will work for you. The hair is soft and luxurious and will last a while. I tell whomever will listen about this amazing product.

I can't believe how affordable GOOD hair extensions can be!

About My Hair Extension Application: Tiffany was more than helpful getting me ready to do this. I went back and forth with emails for weeks before I finally ordered. It was like having my own professional extensionist helping me along the way. Having her help me with the color made me make a decision faster because I felt confident with the colors she chose.

The day before we cut the hair off the weft and made bundles and then used the Tembond as the "glue" to hold them together. That way we could have them all ready on day of application.
I taped a bunch of Will and Grace shows and we watched those while we installed.  We had a good system going.   Either I was installing and she was clipping the tips off the hair and then handing to me or she was installing while I prepared the hair before she dipped in in the melting pot. Really helped speed it up.

My application was successful because of the simplicity of the installation method. Few items needed made it less confusing and easy to work with. Mostly need only your hands. No tools. I also had my daughter there to help me see the back and check my work.

Doing the back without seeing was a bit hard. You are racing time to get the bond on before it dries too much. I started with my sides so I could see and get the feel of it before I went to the back. I know my sections and bonds were big the first time. Bigger than what I could see Tiffany do in her video. Takes more practice to work with really small bundles.

I found this system to be of such great value. The hair is exceptional! The bond is inexpensive. I was not forced to purchase color rings as most other places require which is so silly when you need only one or two colors. This would be useful if I did this professionally but Tiffany helped me choose a color by sending her my pics. I saw that she did that with other girls in the forum so I sent them in and she helped to pick the perfect colors! SAVED me money there.

The hair is exceptional! The bond is inexpensive.

About My Hair Extension Wear: When i wear the Manemaxx extensions, I feel so confident. I have hair I could never have if I grew it myself. Even better than growing my own.

This is so versatile that I have already moved some pieces around to change the look of my color. I went a little too heavy with the blonde the first time so I added or moved some to break it up a bit and I have control over it! Unlike having someone else get it all wrong for me and having to color and damage my hair over and over. I mean we all have "ideas" for color that does not always look that good once you have it but with tembond, I can change as much as I like without compromising my hair in any way!


I have had them a little over a week now. I first installed my daughters hair. she did not use ManeMaxx® hair but a different, less quality brand and does it show! Then I installed my own after building confidence with doing hers and practicing a bit with a mannequin head. Having my daughter there was helpful to help speed up the application process and check my own work.

I really like the ease with how to remove the bonds. Before this, I was in the process of taking my seamless out and it looked bleak like I was not going to be able to avoid damaging my hair.  And since I have found MANEMAXX hair extensions to be damage free, it will allow me to have any color I choose but without having to apply any color to my natural hair.

...with Tembond, I can change as much as I like without compromising my hair in any way!

My Tips for Others: There was a bit of a wait for the hair but it was worth it. The hair is so silky. While i waited for the hair she sent me the other items and I was able to practice with hair I had already. I bought a mannequin head on Amazon for $23! It had been cut already so that is why I got it cheap. But it was fine for practicing. And it seemed so much easier when I worked on a human head!

And well, if you don't mind the extra work, you can save money by pre-measuring your hair the day before like I did. It really does not require much Tembond to hold the bundles together and you already get plenty in the kit for more than one install.

My Thoughts for Visitors: Ask all the questions you want. Tiffany is one who wants you to be happy and goes out of her way to make sure you can do this. The personal attention just can't be beat! This is such an innovative idea and it helps women have expensive looking extensions for such a good price. I plan on seeing Tiffany on Oprah one day for one of those self made millionaire success stories.

My Message for ManeMaxx®: Keep it up and thanks so much for this! I would never have this confidence if this did not exist. I would have given up on extensions totally because the seamless was not for me either and I could not afford professional.

Using Hair Extensions in Fine Thin Hair

Name: Erika
Age: 20
ManeMaxx® Forum: n/a
Product Used: Complete Starter Strands Kit 20 inch Dark Brown
Experience: I have only worn them once before and used the metal clip extensions and applied them myself.  When wearing clip in extensions, I felt great with longer and fuller hair. They were also very cheap to purchase. The thing was, it was very annoying to have to put the clip in extensions in every day. When I took them out at night or days I was just relaxing, I lost my hair confidence. I didn't like that people who saw me at night or relaxing wouldn't see my long hair.


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions because I have always had the kind of hair where it would grow at the roots, but never seem to get any longer. My dark roots would be inches long at my crown, yet the length was the same! It was so frustrating. I would never be one of those girls with the thick, long, flowing hair.

During my freshman year in college, my hair began to break off terribly, due to bad health habits and five years of bleaching my dark hair blonde. My hair had been about to the middle of my arms, but that year it broke off all the way to my shoulders! Just looking at photos from back then make me cringe. My hair was so unhealthy, so broken and damaged, yet I couldn't bear to stop bleaching it. I love being blonde, and I had been blonde so long I thought I wouldn't be the same person without my hair color.

I didn't want to be brunette, but I made a deal with my self. I would get my self hair extensions and have long, gorgeous hair if it had to be brown. So I went ahead and dyed my hair permanently brown.

Immediately, in the months before I purchased my extensions, I could already see my hair's health improving. It was getting longer and becoming thicker. I was undoing the damaged I did to my hair, but still, I had to have it long!

At first, I was searching for clip in extensions to order online. Since I had worn them before, and I am not able to afford to go to the salon for extensions, this is what I thought I could get. However, I remembered that I hated the hassle of having to put them in and take them off everyday, and I started wanting extensions that could be left in for long periods of time. I was looking for things like cost, length, the ability to reuse hair.

So then I started investigating tape extensions, since they last. However, everyone was saying how damaging they were, and I imagined having sticky tape in my hair and having to pull it out when I'm done - ouch!! Since one of the reasons for me getting extensions was to help my hair be healthy and grow longer, this seemed to totally cancel that out.  That's when I saw Manemaxx, and was very excited to see a permanent extension method that is non-damaging!

I was very impressed with the fact that it was healthy and non damaging for your hair. The cost was also great... awesome deal! Hair and supplies for a good cost, and it's reusable! Manemaxx isn't too much more money than clip-ins hair extensions, yet WAY cheaper than the salon. Great value! I was pleased with the amount of hair that came in the kit! I only used a bit more than half of it for my full head! Great!

I was so excited to find ManeMaxx! Permanent hair extensions I could afford without pricey trips to the salon.

Plus, the fact that there is no damage. That was the selling point for me. Damage from other methods of hair extensions would have cancelled out the reason I was buying them in the first place.

Now I'm wearing gorgeous hair extensions to my waist, while my real hair is growing and improving. I am so grateful for the affordable, beautiful Manemaxx extensions!! They are the best thing that has happened to my hair!

About My Hair Extension Application: Before installing, I went through the ManeMaxx hair extension video, read the step-by-step instructions, and did test strands of the hair extensions. My mom just read the instructions that came with the hair extension kit and I showed her what I learned from the DVD and online. She probably would have been more well prepared if she had been as thorough as I had with my preparation instructions, so I certainly recommend doing that. However, even without critical study of the hair extension video and instructions, she still caught on very quick. I also like having help, as it's much easier to have someone else get the back of your head where you can't see.


The first application did take a while, but that was because it was a learning experiment. If my mom didn't like a bond, she redid it, and that added to the time.  Towards the end, she felt very confident in her bonds and she was getting quicker and quicker. I know that on the next install it will go even smoother and faster and the bonds will be even more secure.

I do suggest that you set aside a specific day for doing an  install.  When we did my hair, my mom had to go do stuff and I had to walk around with half a head of hair until the next day when she had more time!

There were no drawbacks about this system!  I found everything I want with ManeMaxx.

About My Hair Extension Wear: I LOVE the way I look with long, gorgeous hair. This long, thick hair is something I could never have grown on my own.
I get so many complements on my beautiful hair, and people are shocked to find out they are extensions, since they look so natural! I was so self conscious of my hair before, and now I am very confident.

The hair included in the kit is soft, long, beautiful colored. It’s so much nicer than hair I've had with clip-ins. I plan on using ManeMaxx extensions for a very long time!


I've had my extensions in for 8 weeks now. I plan on wearing them for two more weeks until I remove them. Then I'm going to dye my roots, have a nice shampoo, and do a fresh install.

During the time I've worn my extensions, I've only lost a few bonds here and there, and that's probably because it was our first install and we are not experts yet. I'm sure our bonds will get better and better with more practice. However, even with out inexperience, my extensions have held up so well!
I wash my hair often and style like usual. They are very comfortable to wear. After you get used to them the first day, you can barely feel them.  Plus, the kit includes such a generous amount of hair! For a thick, full head I used only about half the hair I received. I've got plenty to supplement future installs, and if a strand falls out tangles I can just toss it out.

...Removal is so easy! I just held the straightener on the bond and it came right out!

My Tips for Others: Practice before you do a full install, and enlist a friend to help. It will go much faster and smoother. Practice makes perfect with this system! You are not a licensed stylist, so you won't be immediately perfect at it, but thats the beauty of ManeMaxx! Even us normal people who can't style hair to save our lives can have beautiful, long hair!

My Thoughts for Visitors:The ManeMaxx kit is such a value compared to getting extensions done at the salon. It saves so much time and money, plus the hair is reusable! If you are good at doing hair, have the time to learn a new method, or have a friend who can, this is for you!

My Message for ManeMaxx®: THANK YOU!!!! You have given me the hair I never could have for a great price! I would never recommend any other extension method!

Using Hair Extensions for In-Between Stage

Name: Claudia
Age: n/a
E-mail: not published
ManeMaxx® Forum: n/a
Hair Extension Product Used: Complete Starter Kit 14 inch Wavy Color Black
Experience: This is my very first time with hair extensions of any kind!


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions because I have wanted to grow my hair long again for a few years, but I don't like the "in between stages"-because I cut my own hair-I always end up cutting it very short again.  This gives me the long hair I love, and allows me to give my own hair time to grow out in peace.
I was hoping to achieve a very natural look-my hair is short now, and I have failed at "patience" when it comes to that "in between stage"--so I am constantly cutting it, though I long for my natural long hair again.

I was looking for things like cost, length, comfort, quality, and the ability to reuse hair when I discovered yours via essential day spa. The girls there are raving about you! :)

I liked the claims that the results are very natural looking, and the fact that although it is costly, they are reusable-unlike other systems.  The only thing I knew I'd be sacrificing was...mhh..:time! It is time consuming to apply these..though I was forewarned and ready for it!

It looks natural, matches my natural hair perfectly...I am hooked!!

About My Hair Extension Application: The process of application was more difficult than we expected, but just as you say, "with practice it IS getting easier".

My dh is an encuastic artist...this means he works with beeswax on his paintings.  He had offered to install them (he loves my long hair), but he only was able to do it for an hour the first night-and I stayed up until 2am that evening to add some-and the next morning, when he saw my long hair, he helped me again-with more patience :)


We did also have a great system going though... but it was while watching documentaries on netflix (so dh could concentrate on my hair and not a movie). I also made a great meal before hand..and lots of wine and chocolate as he worked!  The best tactic for us was for me to hold my hair while he dipped "manemaxx hair" and directly placed it on piece I was holding.

This is not a difficult system, it is however, a bit of an acquired 'craft' any craft, technique develops the more you practice…

About My Hair Extension Wear: I am so pleased with my hair! It has been a struggle to grow my hair long again- I look best with either VERY short- or VERY long hair...the in between stages (a year duration) is awful for me...and since I trim my own hair, it has been very difficult to let it grow out. Manemaxx is allowing me to have long hair while growing my hair out! A big plus is that I have always loved my hair wavy-but I only get that when I am at the beach (I love in DC). It looks natural, matches my natural hair perfectly...I am hooked!


My first day "out" with extensions-we went to eat dinner with a couple we are just getting acquainted with. During dinner, one of my (huge) bonds fell on the table (!)dh was as quick as a magician as he swiped it off the table...:) I don't know how the other types of hair are, but the regal extension hair I purchased is wonderful!

...I love my new look, so does my husband and son!

My Tips for Others: When applying: just patience, patience, patience!  What we ended up doing is for a week-taking an hour every evening to "do hair". We turned on a Netflix documentary, and had some wine along with it!

My Thoughts for Visitors: I highly recommend!

My Message for ManeMaxx®: I LOVE it! :) Very much appreciated the personal touch!

Hair Extensions to Help Me Feel Beautiful

Name: Autumn Bixler
Age: 22
ManeMaxx® Extension Forum: autumnbixler
Product Used: Complete Starter Kit 18-20" Color #613
Experience With Hair Extensions: Worn hair extensions before and did them myself. I used glue for weft, sewing wefts, braiding, strands and tape.  I have not had much luck with any of these other processes. They are painful and ruin my hair.


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions to look more polished.  I am a swimmer and I noticed that when i am in the water a lot, my extensions dry out faster. They feel like straw within two weeks.

I was on the internet one day right after my high school graduation. I had received a lot of money for my high school graduation and I was going to blow it all on top dollar hair extensions in a fancy salon that would have took 8 to 10 hours and 2,000 dollars. And I came across your special and unique hair extension product!!

I found MANEMAXX on Google. I liked that you got everything you need for hair extensions in an affordable kit with an instructional dvd.  I decided my questions were answered and went to pay for my kit.  I was a little unclear how to do that since I didn't have a paypal account.

About My Hair Extension Application: Before applying the hair extensions, I dyed my roots to match my extensions perfectly.  It takes me about 2 hours to put them in.
My MANEMAXX hair extension application was successful and it went in easy and quick!  I have very short hair like just above my collarbone, now with your product it's almost to my butt and I am 5 10. I love using it! And not to mention the boys love it too ;)

Only thing, I have a very hard time with the removal process. Every time I twist to try to break the bond, the bond is still left over in my hair. It leaves for a very painful brushing.

It went in easy and quick! Piece of cake!

About My Hair Extension Wear: I have been using MANEMAXX hair extensions for about four years now. I can never hide my smile! I exuberant confidence and a warm glow.

I am an active socialite for my college. And there are many times when I have to get up and speak, or be one of the main attractions for hosting events. My sorority sisters and I have to maintain a certain appearance and we do with Manemaxx! We love how edgy and sophisticated we look! It has truly given us so much confidence and we love to tell everyone about your product!

We love how edgy and sophisticated we look!

My Tips for Others: Make sure you just put little chunk of the block of wax in a time, so your chunk of wax will last you longer and it also helps the wax hold up longer in your hair. It helps a lot if you don't keep reheating it.

My Thoughts for Visitors: This product has changed my appearance greatly! It has boosted my confidence at such an affordable price. I would recommend it to anyone with any type of hair style.

My Message for ManeMaxx®: I love your product and it has transformed me greatly!  The pictures of the final product are amazing!!

How Hair Extensions Helped Me Fix My Bleached and Broken Hair

Name: General Manstomp
Age: 28
ManeMaxx® Forum: Manstomp
Product Used: Complete Starter Kit 18" in color Platinum Blonde and Dirty Blonde ½ Package Highlighting Hair
Hair Extension Experience: This was my first time with these hair extensions. I ordered the ManeMaxx Hair, 18" of the lightest blonde with an additional ½ Package of a dark blonde mix. Since my natural hair is medium brown, the extra½ Package of hair helps my roots to mix in better, and the color looks very natural. My kit arrived very quickly- just in time to instal during my time off of work that following weekend. I was extremely pleased with the very nice packaging, and I could see the remy hair was superior in quality. I've done this and can advise you to not buy cheap hair off of ebay, because it tangles and it will not be worth your money!!!!


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions because I had extremely damaged hair, and was at my wits end. The horror story with my hair started when I had deployed to Iraq. I was unable to maintain my blonde color, and decided it would be easier just to dye it all dark while I was deployed. (my hair naturally is a medium brown color, but I’ve had it blonde for about 10 years)  So, I dyed it all black.

I hadn't had dark hair in a very long time and absolutely HATED it. Immediately upon returning home, I went to my hair stylist to get it back blonde. She could only lighten it to a ugly brown color. Frustrated, I bought a bleaching kit and decided to do it myself... BIG MISTAKE!!!

I got my desired color, but my hair broke off very badly in places, down to a couple of inches in some areas. Around my face, I was horrified to find my hair breaking off to a half an inch!!! I had clip-in extensions I would have to wear everyday, but I didn't even have enough of my own hair to conceal the clips from showing.  So, I had to wear my hair in a pony tail along with the clip in extensions, and a thick headband to conceal the really short pieces in the front.  I considered cutting it all off and starting over, but I really didn't want really short hair.

I began to google other extension systems, but I needed something that wasn't going to damage my hair any further. I really didn't have a lot of hair, and couldn't take the chance on getting a system that would break it off any more. I had read a lot of horror stories on how the glue-in kind can really reek havoc on your hair, so when I stumbled upon ManeMaxx, it just sounded too good to be true. I kept looking for horror stories, but I could find nothing but success stories from the girls on the forum!

I decided to give it a try, and it's by far the best purchase on my appearance I have ever made. My hair is soft, thick and sexy. I feel so confident now, and have hair like a celebrity.  I know I sound like a commercial, but ManeMaxx is just amazing!!! 

About My Hair Extension Application: Before applying the hair extensions, I watched the DVD and read the instructions over and over. The directions are great, and all the major points are emphasized over and over again. I  solicited help from my aunt, and I did her hair also with some extra hair I bought.

My advice is to make it a fun night with a friend/relative. We watched Sex and the City, and take turns doing each other's hair when we got tired.  I believe my hair extensions were a success because we read the directions extensively, and I had  help with my installation. For the first instal, it is important to have help. Once you get some practice (maybe doing someone else's hair) you can do your own hair pretty easily.


Even though I felt this was fairly difficult, I was very pleased with the application process and results.  I would say, don't be afraid to let go of the hair once you line up the extension hair with your own. The Tembond does all the work, and at first it is very tempting to want to press it into your own hair. DO NOT DO THIS!!! I was holding on too long at first, and it was making my bonds crack at the top. It might not look like it will stay, but have faith. It will!!!

What I liked best about TemBond, was that it did not damage my hair. Also, if you messed up on a bond, you could easily take it out and re-do it!
It is amazing, and anyone wanting longer, fuller, gorgeous hair should invest their time and money into this system. It is the best kept secret I have found!

About My Hair Extension Wear: It's funny seeing people's reaction when all of the sudden they see the transformation! It took my husband a while to get used to it, and I had to tell him it was ok to touch my hair. I think he thought it would fall out if he did!

I wanted to have long beautiful hair like I did when I was younger. Once the bleaching and horrible chemicals I put my hair through started, this was no longer possible until I found Manemaxx. I am so thrilled to have found this system.

Tiffany Twist offers amazing customer service. Any time I had a question on what to order, or troubleshooting my instal, she always responded very promptly. Her help continued even after I had received my order.

This product has given me so much confidence, and it is great not having to worry about my previous clip-in extensions showing.

I will continue to use this product for as long as it is offered.

My Tips for Others: Have help for your first instal. If you are doing someone else's hair, that is a good way to get practice for the next time that you do yours. So talk your friend into getting a kit too!

My Thoughts for Visitors: Just do it! You will be so glad you did!!!

My Message for ManeMaxx®: Please promise to always offer this product! I cannot live without it.

Great Results with Hair Extensions

Name: Alyssa
Age: 17
E-mail: not published
ManeMaxx® Forum: lissasheaxbia
Hair Extension Product Used: Complete Starter Kit
Experience: First time with MANEMAXX, applied and worn all kinds of other hair extensions methods with wefts like glue and clips and then metal rings.


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions because when I was in 7th grade my mom had gone and gotten extensions put in her hair and had some track left over, which worked in my favor because our hair was the exact same color. She explained how to sew the clips into the weft and told me how the application process worked and after that, I was hooked.

There was a 1 year period where my hair had actually grown down to the middle of my back and i didn't need extensions. But around my freshman year i became fascinated with the style that is commonly known as "scene". I cut off all my hair and got all kinds of crazy layers and started using extensions again to add different colors to my hair.

Ever since I made the decision to cut my hair I've had a lot of trouble growing it back out, so extensions have become a part of my life.
In the past I have used clips which weren't damaging but they were not permanent and fell out several times a day.

I've used glued hair extensions and they stayed in well but the glue was difficult to remove and took hair with it when removed so I was looking for something that would last, look natural and not damage my hair.

Most importantly, I wanted hair extensions that could be worn more permanently for a length of time, had minimum visibility and were comfortable. It took months to get my hair back into good condition to put more extensions in and I wanted the right process so I wouldn't just have more damage to my hair.

I cut off all my hair and got all kinds of crazy layers and started using extensions again to add different colors to my hair.

I really love that this system offers more styles to choose from. I like blending colors and can go from light to chunky simply by removing and reapplying where I want it.

About My Hair Extension Application: My application was successful because there were no complications, everything came together smoothly and I'm pleased with the results. The instruction was pretty clear, the only thing I had a little trouble with was the placement of the bond. I had to watch that part of the application video a couple times over.

The application was pretty easy seeing as how I've done sections of my own head and helped my mother with hers. I wouldn't exactly call it a piece of cake because im not THAT experienced with it, but for my first time it was pretty simple and for a beginner. I think a had a natural feel for it.

My mother and I cut the extensions about 1/6th of an inch per section and layed them out on a table so they would be ready to install.

While applying I was a little nervous, seeing as how it was the first time for my mom and I to apply the extensions but once we started I began to get the feel for it very quickly.

I thought the length of the process was really going to irritate me because I have ADD and am not very good at sitting in one place for a very long time, but it was actually not bad at all and it was a nice bonding experience for my mother and I.

...there were no complications, everything came together smoothly and I’m pleased with the results.

About My Hair Extension Wear: When I first put in the MANEMAXX extensions, it was my first day living back in Chicago and I wanted to look different to everyone that hadn't seen me since 9 months prior to that.

The first night I went out everyone was in awe over how much my hair had "grown" since they had seen me last. I had to confess to a few people that it wasn't really my hair and they could not believe it. I showed them the bond and how it looked so real because it was strand by strand. No bumps, no visible tracks and you can't even tell where my real hair ends and the extensions begin.

I feel comfortable walking around and wearing my hair in a ponytail without worrying if people are noticing my extremely visible tracks.


I've had them in for about 2 weeks now and at first it takes some getting used to with the extra weight of all the new hair in your head, but now everything perfect. I have removed a couple of bond to see if it really was that easy and painless and it really was. I had NO HAIR break which is amazing.

After watching the videos and seeing how natural it looked and then actually putting it to the test on my own head, I think this is the future of hair extensions. it will definately go far. I've been putting all types of extensions in my hair for years and nothing has ever even come close to feeling as comfortable and natural as MANEMAXX. I wear my hair up and style it all different ways and there are some friends that still believe its my real hair!!

I like that the hair extensions are easy to remove. This was my first time with strand by strand and love that look best out of all the different methods of putting in hair extensions because it is so comfortable and blends well with my hair because the bond color matches so well, no one could tell, and, so far, it looks like this can't damage my hair.

I've been putting all types of extensions in my hair for years and nothing has ever even come close to feeling as comfortable and natural as ManeMaxx®.

My Tips for Others: You have to have the time and the patience to apply the extensions and you must follow ALL the rules that Tiffany explains in the video, or it might not work out the way you wanted it to.

My Thoughts for Visitors: My mom told me about this a while ago and I had no idea it would be so cool. I'll never use anything else again and I'll telling all my girl friends about it. I've put every single type of extensions they have in my hair and have NEVER been this satisfied with the results!

My Message for ManeMaxx®: YOU NEED TO GET OUT TO HOLLYWOOD SOON! You're going to be widely known in the next couple years and I will GLADLY get out there and advertise and represent you in the Chicagoland area.

Want Temporary Long Hair? Get hair Extensions!

Name: Debbie Brown
Age: 28
ManeMaxx® Forum: not registered yet
Product Used: Complete Starter Strands Kit 20 inches #22/140
Experience: This is my 3rd ManeMaxx®/Tembond® hair extension Install


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions mainly because I wanted longer, thicker hair, and the ability to have color variations which were not permanent. The clip ins do not grip to my own hair because my hair is baby fine, and the hair extension clips are very visible when in and look fake. So, I was looking for a hair extension method that looked natural, did not damage my own hair, was safe during wear, did not hurt my head or scalp, was comfortable to wear.

I found the ManeMaxx® website through Google. I was looking for things like cost, length, and most importantly, hair extensions that would do no damage to my hair.

When searching the hair extension website, I was intrigued by ManeMaxx® Tembond's zero damage, no glues, chemicals or nasty tools. The kit content, value for money, easy maintenance, fact that no trips to salon were needed, and how versatile and cost effective it is.

So affordable! And when you have the starter kit its even cheaper to maintain and re do!

At the time I was considering buying when I first saw the website, I was uncertain, just like anything, as it sounded too good to be true... looked so good and so hard to believe that it doesn't damage and looks that amazing. With so many pluses it was hard to believe.

The information was a bit more basic when I first discovered this site, however the customer service is fantastic, and any questions I had were answered straight away by email in detail and very helpful. Also the website has so much to offer now. Its been updated so much, I cant fault it at all so I loved the fact that emailing questions are answered fast, the customer service is great and part of what makes ManeMaxx® Tembond a great product you can trust.

Because this product is so versatile, there are so many color and style variations I can try. And keep up to date with the fashions whenever I want... even create my own unique style and color mix.

About My Hair Extension Application: My application was successful because I followed all the instructions and read the website. It was unsuccessful because I slept in wet hair and brushed when wet on 1st application. But I don't get a bad result anymore now that I stopped doing this. I was very pleased with my kit and the amount of hair was great and quality great too. The loop brush I also love.

As far as applying, the back is difficult when doing this on your own if you are not used to it. However it gets better with practice, and just takes time and no rushing.

Before application, I washed, colored and conditioned my hair. I used old towels for protecting surfaces and clothes. I heated the wax up in the melting pot for a few minutes, stirred with the spatula. I also laid out the extension hair and straightened it before applying.

I had a great time while applying, mainly laughing and gossiping with my friend during the install which made it go by so fast! The time it takes to install is a sacrifice but worth it for how long I can keep them in each time.. which is really a plus because everyone deserves me time. And I always get together with a friend and have a few coffees and gossip while we do hair.


ManeMaxx® Tembond covers everything I could want from hair extension wear.

I have no shedding, tangles, bonds loosening, frizz, worn out looking hair issues to deal with anymore!

I use the melting pot on full heat in a warm room, I stir the wax for a few seconds to make sure it is mixed well before dipping in each strand, when I dip, I dip and place the end against the spatula to make sure all the hairs are covered in wax properly, and dip again without putting against the spatula this time to make sure the wax is covered on the strand well before attaching. And I attach strait away before the wax dries with a towel over my lap to catch dripping.

I never hold the bond, only top and bottom of the bond with my thumbs to attack for a few seconds until removing my fingers and thumbs. So the middle of the bond is not touched by my fingers..this way it prevents the bonds from slipping out during wear and brushing.

Removal is easy, and if I have excess [TemBond] leftover I just wash my hair and it brushes out.

As I have fine hair, I make the bonds very small, so they are less visible, and gives me thicker hair results. The bonds are very strong and do not come out unless I take them out. I only have maybe up to 3 or 4 bonds at the most come out within 8-10 weeks of wear, which is hardly anything at all considering the fact that I wash my hair almost every day, blow dry and straighten every day, I love brushing my hair a lot every day too, so my bonds go through a lot!

And the odd bond that does come out during 8-10 weeks only comes out when brushing, and I just place it in my pocket, or handbag if I'm not home. And it just goes back in in minutes, and of course will not come back out until I take it out, because its re-bonded again to last.

I have had so much fun with cute pink and pale blue color highlights, and if I ever want a night out with a bright highlight in the front for example, I can put a few in within minutes, ready for a night out, next day take the highlights out in seconds if I don't want them there permanently, its so versatile!

About My Hair Extension Wear: It's so versatile. There's so many things I can do with this product, without having loads of maintenance to do, salon fees, or additional trips to the salon/fees. With no expense to my own hair.. zero damage. I trust this method 100% I feel so confident wearing my extensions.. I don't want to even call them extensions because they feel and look like my own hair. Because I can create the bonds as small as I like, they are so comfortable and easy to sleep with... unlike most men!!

I have had so many comments off people about how great my hair looks. People who i hadn't seen in a long time thought my hair grew fast and looked fantastic. Everyone says how great it looks. My cousin even asked me for my autograph on the internet!! haha!!

I look and feel amazing like a celebrity!! 


I take a little more care than I used to with my hair, which is also a good thing, because it means I'm looking after my own hair better too. And that makes me feel good.

My Tips for Others: The very 1st install I did, I did find that when it was time to take the bonds out, I had lots of tangles that were hard to get out. However, there was a reason for this, as I would wash my hair just before bedtime and sleep with wet hair, also I would brush with wet hair which caused a lot of shedding, and reduce the quality of the hair.

I thought I should point this out, because it really makes you get the best application! I no longer sleep with wet hair, or brush with wet hair.

I also use a shower cap if I'm just washing my body and not my hair.

I wash my hair in the morning, or evening and blow dry on a cool setting and brush when completely dry. So now I find I have no tangling at the bonds in the mornings, i run my fingers tips through at the roots and feel nothing caught or tangled. And even when I was it I find its tangle free now because I'm looking after it properly, and it doesn't take me any longer to just wash and dry in the evening or mornings instead of when I'm just about to sleep.

I also braid it before bedtime. And when I wake I also find that after I untie it, its still as silky and tangle free as the 1st day it was installed.

Even after washing and conditioning, once I have dried it, I find I only have to take a few minutes straightening, as it hardly needs any straightening because its condition is so good. So it makes huge difference not brushing and sleeping with wet hair. Always make sure I have an old towel to catch the crumbling wax dust.
If I was unsure about anything ever, I would email and ask. And I always get great customer service.

My Thoughts for Visitors: Read everything on the website and don't be afraid to ask questions. Try it.. Follow all the advice and instructions fully and you wont regret it!! It totally changed my look!!!

My Message for ManeMaxx®: Fantastic product and service as always.. keeps me looking great and never lets me down!!

She Was Looking for an Easy-to-Apply Hair Extension Kit

Name: Kasey Donohue
Age: 29
ManeMaxx® Forum: SinKittyVixen
Product Used: Complete Starter Strands Kit 16 inches #4/30 and an additional package of #4/30 (my hair is very thick!)
Experience With Hair Extensions: None, this is my very first time with any extensions!


Why I Wanted Hair Extensions: I wanted hair extensions because I cut my long hair off in October. It was damaged due to multiple color processes. And I regretted it. I wanted long hair again. I was looking for hair extensions, things like comfort, quality, and the ability to reuse hair in a hair extension, and found manemaxx on Google. I was looking for a system that I could do at home. I also wanted a system that didn't cause a lot of damage. I also read on a few DIY forums about Manemaxx, and I only read good things about the system. I always like to hear what consumers say about a product before I buy it.

Then I asked about color matching in the forum because I have brownish hair with red and copper tones in it. My questions were answered quickly and I even was shown the sample colors to the pic I posted! It made it soo much easier to choose. My biggest concern was the hair not matching.

I placed my order and I waited about a week and a half for my kit. I read about the process and I was so I couldn't wait for it to come. I loved how the kit came packaged! The process seemed simple and easy enough, once you did it for a little while. And it was.. cut my long hair off in October...And I regretted it. I wanted long hair again.

About My Hair Extension Application: My application was successful because I had a lot of patience, and the directions were wonderful. I was unsuccessful in that I had made some bonds too big. It was my first time doing extensions..ever.. and I found doing the back by myself was a lil hard at first.

I love my hair!

Before applying the hair extensions, I washed my hair with baby shampoo and dried it well. I didn't have help to apply the extensions so I applied half one day and half the next day. i knew i wasnt going anywhere, and I knew I wanted them to be the best they could, and I had tons of hair to install. I did bond in some long blonde streaks for the weekend when I went out. And they came out very easily! I love the manemaxx system. I will never use another.

I love the ManeMaxx® system. I will never use another.

About My Hair Extension Wear: My husband loves my hair.. My husband and my sister couldn't believe how well it matched my own hair, and they couldn't tell at ALL that it was extensions. My oldest son told me he likes me with long hair because it makes me seem so much younger to him. So I asked him if I looked old with shorter hair and he said, YUP! My 10 year old daughter just adored my hair. I asked her if she wants me to keep it this way and she said definitely! She wants some highlights! How fun! Im thinking I may put a few fun ones in for her.

I definitely felt like I had more confidence. I got a compliment about my hair from a stranger! She walked up to me and said she loved my beautiful hair! What a confidence booster it was!


I can't say enough that I feel so much more confident with my extensions. I love getting compliments. I also love that they stay in well. I only lost a few after I washed them, and I believe it was because I did a few bonds too big. But, I think my favorite part is that they scrunch into a beautiful wave. I love that they are versatile.
