Ever wonder what hair extensions method all the celebrities use? Well here it is!
Strand by strand hair extensions method is the method of choice for most of my clients as well. Not only is it the most natural of all the extensions, it lasts three to six months. Individual strands of hair are applied to your own hair and are held with a special protein bond, which allows the hair to move just like your own. You can wash and style it, or even pull it back into a ponytail when you just don’t have time for anything else. This is the most natural custom way to create long hair. (Please not that some brands of strand by strand hair extensions are not recommended for people with fine or thinning hair.)
This method of hair extensions is applied strand by strand with hot or cold fusion. The bonds can be made of a keratin based product or other natural-based products that can be very similar to the material that makes up human hair and nails and is considered to be non-damaging to your own hair. While some will have bonds that match the color of the hair, others can be all one color or clear. Some companies will vary the amount of individual pieces of hair that are included in each bonded strand. For example some will consider 20-30 human hairs to be one strand so the price per strand will vary depending on the company. Most brands have pre-bonded hair that can be cut to custom fit the thickness of each individuals hair strands.
The application time depends on the amount of hair being added. For fullness the hair application appointment can be anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. For a full head of hair it can take 3 to 8 hours.
The extensions themselves should last anywhere from 3 to 6 months depending on proper maintenance. Regular visits for check ups are suggested from 4 to 6 week intervals.
