Have you ever, at some point, watched a shampoo advertisement and envied the model because of her long, gorgeous hair? Here’s the thing – you can get desirable hair within a few hours without waiting for ages for your hair to grow. The answer? Hair extensions, of course! And for today’s post, let’s discuss one of the most preferred methods of hair extensions: I-tip hair extensions, and how to re-make I-tip hair extensions as well.
1. What are I-tip hair extensions?
I-tip hair extensions, also known as micro loop hair extensions, are unarguably one of the most popular hair extensions for all those fashionable women seeking to add length and volume to their hair. These hair extensions got their name because their tips are made from keratin in the I-shape.
What makes these extensions unique is that they are applied without any use of chemicals or heat. Microbeads are used to bond your natural hair with hair extensions. You just have to slide your hair through the loop (while adding the strand of hair alongside) and clamp the bead shut with a pair of pliers.
2. Why do we need to remake I-tip hair extensions?
When being worn for long periods of time, the keratin at the tip of the hair extensions will eventually begin to break down and become softer than it was originally. This is to be expected due to the fact that the hair extensions regularly go through washing and styling, and over the course of 3 – 4 months, this will weaken the keratin. You are advised to remake the keratin bonds instead of cutting them, as this allows more water to enter as the seal has been broken, causing the hair extension to tangle.
3. How to remake I-tip hair extensions?
3.1. Prep your hair
To start, you will need to ensure that all of your hair extensions are neat and tidy, with any original micro rings/tubes removed. Using your hair extension shampoo and conditioner, straighten and brush thoroughly to keep the hair extensions tangle-free.
3.2. Melt the bead
Now, you need to melt the keratin bead. While your keratin bead is melting, you can prepare your first piece of hair. Pick up your first strand and eliminate the old bond, leaving you with loose hair. Try to trim closer to the bond to not lose too much length from the hair extensions.
3.3. Apply new keratin
When the first keratin bead is fully melted, place the end of the extension inside the heat connector so that around 1cm is placed in the glue. Close the wand gradually, and jerk the hair extension out of the heat connector. Repeatedly revolve the hair. This action will ensure that every hair is covered in keratin and will stop the hair extensions from shedding. Then, remember to squeeze away excess glue.
3.4. Form the I-tip
If the hair extension is perfectly covered in keratin, you will need to roll the end to form the I-tip shape, and this is achieved by rolling the extension between your finger and thumb.
Now that you have achieved the desired shape, you will need to trim the end so that it is neat and tidy. So that’s basically how to make Itip hair extensions.
