PROTEIN HAIR

 

WHAT IS PROTEIN HAIR?

It's name: Star10-Collagen.

This is a revolutionary new product, to replace the use of natural hair, the availability of which gets more and more scarce.

Researchers at the multinational Kaneka Corporation, producers of KANEKALON fibres, used at TUPELUCA.COM  have managed to manufacture a new fibre using natural collagen, identical to that found in human hair, a fibre that is heat resistant (straightners, curlers, etc.) up to 170ēC whilst damp.

 

         CAN I COLOUR, BLEACH OR PERM MY EXTENSIONS, WIG OR HAIRPIECE MADE WITH  Star10-Collagen?

Unfortunately no, Star10-Collagen is heat resistant, but isn't resistant  to the chemical processes like colours, perms and bleaches.

      WHAT HAPPENS IF I STRAIGHTEN OR CURL MY EXTENSIONS, WIG OR HAIRPIECE MADE WITH Star10-Collagen?

        With Star10-Collagen FORTUNATELY we can straighten, curl or style out extensions, wigs and hairpieces without having to worry about damaging. It's fabulous as we can change out look in a moment- with our products made from this amazing fibre. 

WILL IT KEEP ITS ORIGINAL FORM IF I STRAIGHTEN OR WASH Star10-Collagen?

    Star10-Collagen allows you to change the styles, and will maintain the last style you have chosen.

For example, a straight wig, that you have curled-will stay curly after you wash it, slightly less than before, but it will never be completely straight.

Another example, a curly wig, if you straighten it, when you wash it, it will stay straight.

It's important to remember that Star10-Collagen is an extremely fine texture, which makes it feel so natural and like human hair, and does not have a shiny finish to it as many other fibres do. Because of having such a fine texture, curls tend to fall slightly, in the case of curling it.

 

       WHAT HAPPENS IF I GO OVER 170ēC ?

       Star10-Collagen IS NOT FLAMMABLE so there is no risk, but the wig, extensions or hairpiece will be ruined, and have a frizzy effect, and will be unusable because of this. 

          HOW LONG SHOULD MY Star10-Collagen EXTENSIONS LAST?

This depends also on which extension system is used, but generally they will last 1 and a half to 2 months,depending on how often straighteners etc. are used.. Unfortunately the extensions don't last as long as a wig or hairpiece as we sleep with them and use more products on them to style everyday...

The fact that we can straighten Star10-Collagen doesn't mean that they are indestructable, so you must care for your product, protecting it with recommended products each time you apply heat, doing so may mean that your wig could last more than a year, unlike the extensions, as we don't sleep with the wig on.

       HOW DO I WASH AND STYLING MY HAIR EXTENSIONS PROTEIN ?

   
It's simple, using a shampoo MOISTURIZER (all those shampoos that do not dry the hair if not rather provide hydration to contain conditioners in its formula, such as shampoos suitable for dry, damaged, punished or dyed hair etc. ..) I wash my extensions without rubbing a lot and previously
unraveling with a big brush preferably without spikes (to avoid breaking the knots and damage the hair). Successively apply (dry) "express leave in conditioner" (two-phase) spray without rinse to promote hydration and shine without "grease" too as in the case of human hair masks that could not be absorbed by this special fiber ...
Begin in brush slowly and gradually from the ends up, eventually unraveling the knots that may have formed due to the natural touch with our clothes or even, as in the case of any other hair because of the many hours moving ..
Whenever we remove extender clip-on collagen for example, will be good practice to untangle the same as described above (inside and out, and
because it could be entangled by the natural touch with our own clothes, with the seat of a car or just by the movement of hair for a whole day) and then apply the express leave in conditioner to obtain good texture and soft as new. If you do not take care of following these steps is likely to accelerate the gradual process of acquiring dry unsightly hair and aged  appearance. However if this happens we can always recover heat unless neglect and deterioration is very advanced.


    
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to understand that the unwinding should be done with extreme care because the hair protein Collagen Star -10 is as thin as human hair and therefore we could break or damage . Example: ERIKA model , 75cm long, its length is a model that could tangle with some ease if our movements do not care about the time we got on the seat of a car or bending sharply with his head down ..

    
IS TOTALLY NORMAL as long hair (like any other extension) entanglement , this model by example unlike other Clip On ( Esmeralda , Star, Elisabeth etc. ..) that are not as long and smooth , is rather indicated for certain special occasions where we have to take into account this peculiarity watching our movements , such as collected from side to take when making sudden movements or changes in posture and know its precise unraveling of some attention and handling . All kind of entangling harder can be undone with patience and love , NO useless brush strong , like we're brushing our hair : this gesture if we we could break a hair knot as mentioned frizz or create a certain effect due elasticity would be to deform its shape and we would find a disappointing result in the appearance as if years old .... but still ..... and here's the most incredible feature , we can shape and texture recover heat ironing it again and again back to its original state as if it were new ! Is not it great ? ...
