Ever wanted to find out which hair extension are right for you? Choose real hair extensions over synthetic as they’re more durable with washing and styling.
Pre-bonded hair extensions
These are attached to the hair by keratin bonds at the tip of the hair extension which are attached with a little hot tool. These are the most popular and look great, but they do require upkeep and regular salon appointments for hair maintenance. As well as that, you need to avoid putting conditioners, heated appliances near the connection, this will weaken the bond and potentially lead to your extensions coming out much earlier.
For maximum duration with this system, remember to condition only the lengths gently. If you’re blow-drying, dry the lengths first, then tip your head forward to dry your real hair.
Durability: 3 months, if looked after would last 4 – 5 months
