Fusion & Pre-Bonded Hair Extensions
Fusion hair extensions (also known as bonding or pre-bonded or keratin hair) are fused to natural hair using different adhesives such as glue. Applying pre-bonded hair extensions take approximately 3-4 hours to apply and are also applied by a hairdresser. The application involves a machine that looks like a hot glue gun, which essentially glues the hair to individual strands of the natural hair. Another type of application for pre-bonded hair extensions uses a heat clamp to melt the glue to the natural hair. Fusion/pre-ponded/keratin hair application is managed and treated the same way as your real hair. You can use the same products you would normally use, however, the extensions need re-positioning every 2–3 months as the natural hair grows
Micro links/Micro rings Hair Extensions
Micro link/micro rings hair extensions are also known as micro bead hair extensions or micro loop hair extensions. These are applied by attaching tiny wefts of hair to small sections of the natural hair with a small silicone-lined bead. Then, a special tool is used to secure the bead to the hair and tightened to hold it in place. This method takes approximately 2 – 4 hours to apply. You can wash them the same way you would your natural hair and use the same styling products. Similar to fusion hair extensions, micro link/micro rings hair extensions need re-positioning every 2 – 3 months as the natural hair grows and the micro beads move away from the scalp.
