Using Pre-Bonded Hair Extensions

Pre-bonded hair extensions are hair strands that have been bonded at one tip using an adhesive like keratin and glue. These extensions come in different types such as nail-tip, stick tip, and nano-tip hair extensions. Nail tip is also called fusion hair extensions because they are attached to the natural hair using a heat connector. For this extension, heat is needed to melt the glue and attach the strands to the natural hair at the root.

Meanwhile, for pre-bonded stick-tip and nano-tip hair extensions, the micro ring technique is used for the application. That means you will need to use micro-ring fitting pliers/nano pliers, a threader, and a pulling needle to attach the pre-bonded extensions to the natural hair.

While both application methods for pre-bonded hair extensions are time-consuming and tedious, they are still preferred by many because they blend well with your natural tresses. Because they are fitted strand by strand, they are undetectable. Also, pre-bonded hair extensions are semi-permanent. That means you can wear them longer without worrying about them slipping or falling out.

Pre-bonded hair extensions are versatile. You can style them in different ways. Now, to make sure that you will carry these extensions with ease, follow these application techniques and tips.

  • Make sure to attach keratin bonds should 1 cm away from the scalp. This tip applies to both fusion and micro ring methods.
  • To prevent extensions from knotting with each other, keep at least 1cm between the bonds.
  • Don't attach the hair extensions too close to the hairlines and crowns to avoid damaging the natural hair.
  • Before applying the pre-bonded extensions, shampoo your natural hair so that it's clean and free from grease, dirt, and any debris.
  • Use a separator to protect the root or scalp from the heat when attaching nail tip extensions.
  • Don't shampoo and condition hair within 24 hours after the application.
