Still curious in your search for the perfect hair extensions that works best for you? Well of course you are! Each type of hair extension is designed for specific goals, or used for different hair types, or to suit your lifestyle. Last week we discussed the ever popular Hand Tied-Weft extensions, and if you are still searching through Hair Extensions Fort Lauderdale options, lets discuss Fusion Extensions – another extension we offer here at Hello Beautiful Salon. Hot Fusion extensions are one of the original types of extensions for your hair. Fusion strands use a keratin bond that connects the extension to your hairline, and though this kind of application will take longer than most, the payoff is the low maintenance and simple upkeep to these extensions. Fusion extensions will last about three to six months without the necessary need for touchups in between. When you are ready to adjust your extensions, your Hair Salon Fort Lauderdale stylist will remove them and apply them closer to your scalp again, like the initial application. Fusions extensions are also great for those who have thicker hair or shorter hair, and offer more options for those with textures from straight to deep wavy hair. They come in strands vs wefts which offers a natural appearance, blends perfectly into your hair, strong durability, and simple removals. The Fusion extensions are applied to the top of your hair by a small keratin protein bond. The tip is solid until it is melted or softened with a hair extension tool, then the stylist molds the tip onto the hair. Each strand of your hair is sectioned off to equal that of the extension for a perfectly blended look. These are attached strand by strand, row by row, starting at the top of the head and works it way down the sides and back of your head. The bonds should lie flat against your head and covered by the upper layer of your hair that your stylist sectioned off. Removing your Fusion Extensions are actually quite easy, with a keratin bond remover. The alcohol-based solution breaks down the adhesive of the bond, and your Fort Lauderdale Hair Salon stylist will use their hair extension tool to break the bond and the hair extension will just slide on off! To take care of your Fusions hair extensions, we recommend sulfate free products, shampoo and conditioner (also recommending leave-in conditioners), use a good heat protectant (like Amika’s Blackade Heat Protectant Serum) if you are looking to either straighten or curl your hair with your extensions, brush your hair dry and bottom to top – never top to bottom to avoid damage or slippage, and keep any updo’s or braids loose. When your Fusions extensions are applied correctly at your Beauty Salon Fort Lauderdale, they should almost never damage your hair. You are also looking at up to 9 packs of extensions for a full head of Fusion extensions, each pack should contain 20 strands of hair, how many you will need is something you can discuss with your stylist during your initial consultation, and can cost up to $600 depending. Fusion Hair Extensions are probably one of the most loved extensions between clients and stylists. They are tried and true, one of the oldest forms of extensions, most popular and talked about types of extensions, and apparently it can be said that the keratin fusion industry is one of the best regulated extension industries out there. As we discussed last week, how often can you wash your hair or go swimming? Wash your hair twice a week, and swim sparingly. The chlorine and salt water can loosen your keratin bonds. Though that my worry some, the pro’s of fusion extensions weigh in favor for their durability, natural blending, and beautiful style. If you are interested in Fusion Hair Extensions, make sure to set up a consultation with one of our extensions stylists to discuss the best steps, color matching, and how many packs you will need to fulfill that beautiful extension look you have been dying for. If you are still interested in searching for the best Hair Extensions for you, make sure to come back next week, where we will be discussing Tape-In extensions, the 3rd and final extension type that we offer here at Hello Beautiful Salon, Best Beauty Salon Fort Lauderdale.
