How Long Do Hair Extensions Last For?
Firstly, it all depends on the method of hair extensions used. Secondly, the aftercare is an extremely important factor to ensure the longevity of the hair.
There are a lot of choices available to cater for all different hair types;
Pre-bonded/Fusion (keratin/glue) is more of an old school method, these would generally last around 3-4 months. With the option to have them removed and re-tipped with new bonds, however, this is a more lengthy process than the newer types available.
Stick/Mini/Ultra/Nano tips have taken the hair extension world by storm, because of their easy application, adjustability, and ability to refit straight after removal. This type of hair extension requires no heat during application making the process quick and easy. These generally last around 12 weeks before removal and refit.
Tape hair extensions are one of the newer methods available, these are fantastic for clients with finer hair. They generally last around 6-8 weeks before removal and refit.
Weave hair extensions are advantageous for girls with super thick hair, the technique allows larger areas of hair to be covered with 1-3 wefts at a time. The weave is sewn onto the micro rings by a thin piece of thread. They generally last around 12 weeks before removal and refit.
