Talking about hair extensions, many people may be confused and daunted by many industry words that have to understand when getting started. This article will focus on and classify about one type of fusion hair extensions – I-tip extensions, to help you gain a deeper knowledge of what it is, what it looks like, how to use it as well as ways to take care of it.
What is the I-tip hair extension?
Fusion hair extensions (also known as Tip, bonding or pre-bonded) are fused to using different types of adhesives such as glue. I-Tip is one kind of fusion hair extension, in which the hair strands are fixed together by keratin glue into an I-shape. This method of hair enhancement can be considered as one of the fastest and most popular methods available.
How to apply for I-tip hair extension?
The I-Tip applying process is quite complicated and must be implemented by a professional hairdresser. It will take you approximately 3-4 hours to be done all stages. Pre-bonded extensions might not be an ideal method for everyone to add length and volume for their hair because this type of application is very harmful to your real hair. To wear I-tip hair extension, the hairdresser will firstly take a section of an individual’s hair, then use a specialized machine that looks like a hot glue gun to fuse the hair to the individual strand obtained before. Another way to apply pre-bonded is to use a heat clamp to melt the glue to the natural hair.
I-tip – like other types of fusion hair extensions – can stay in your hair up from 3 to 6 months, depending on your own hair type and how you take care of it. As you wear I-Tip extensions for a few weeks, your hair will normally grow and cause the hair extension to move further away from your scalp. Thus, you will need to go to the hair salon every few weeks so that the stylist can adjust the hair extension by moving them closer to the scalp.
How to remove the I-Tip hair extension?
Although the application is quite difficult and requires a professional to put in, removal, otherwise, is fairly simple as you can totally do it yourself at home. Obviously, you must be careful while removing beads so that your natural hair will be preserved.
The removal is following these steps
- Part your hair in four sections: front, both sides and back to conveniently remove the hair extensions.
- Locate the bond between your hair and I-Tip extensions.
- Break down the glue by using a plier to hard squeeze the bond.
- If bonds are still not broken, then continue to squeeze them on the side and roll between your fingers.
- Repeat this process until all the extensions strands are released.
