Hair extensions allow you to forgo the growth process and change your style on the fly, but attempting to get the glue out without knowing the basics can quickly turn in to a sticky situation. Weaves, metal rings, tape and all manner of other methods serve to keep extensions in place, but few can match the strength and staying power of glue. When the time comes - which may be months after you've applied the extensions - the key to defeating that staying power lies in simple oils.
