  1. How many Bonded Extensions for a full head? 
  • How Many fusions Hair Extensions Do I Need for a Full Head Installation? A full head of extensions range from 5 to 9 packs of hair, assuming each pack contains 20 strands, 1g per strand. If your client has fine, thin hair with some layers and about shoulder length, chances are 5 to 6 packs may be enough. If your natural hair has a blunt bob that is medium to thick in density, you will require about 10 to 12 packs of hair since you will need to blend the extensions in for a natural look. 

  • For overral shoulder length and longer natural hair, you will need at least 5 packs or 100 strands of pre- tipped hair extensions. The number of hair extension packages you need will be based on the length and thickness of your hair and the length and volume you want to achieve. This is why it is very important to ask for a consultation prior to installation. 

  • If you have fine/thin hair, from the occipital bone down, it will take about 50- 60 strands; from the occipital up, to the crown, it will take 50-60 strands. 

  • For medium/thick hair, from the occipital bone down it will take 60- 80 strands; from the occipital bone up, to the crown it will take 50-80 strands. 

  • Remember, if the hair of your hair is thicker or shorter, more often than not, you will need more packages of hair extensions to be able to blend the hair in, making it easy for you to create a natural look.

Since human hair is 95% keratin, the fusion method is safe, comfortable and long-lasting. Hot fusion hair extensions are one of the original forms of hair extensions. They are made up of individual hairs and keratin bonding material. Because your own hair is made up mostly of keratin, this glue does not damage the hair when the extensions are installed. They take about two hours to install at minimum and are ideal for people with thicker hair who are seeking a long-term hair extension solution because the glue can sometimes cause noticeable bulk in thinner types of hair.

Hot fusion uses keratin to attach the hair strands to your hair, thus there is no glue or tape involved. Fused hair give a naturally blended look with your hair, and offers much more styling versatility since the bonds are more discreet in the hair. The hot fusion method also offers a more even weight distribution within each extension bond.

This fusion method allows each Keratin remy hair strand to be moved 360 degrees, meaning any way you wear the hair, there will be no experience of any pulling or snagging. 

  How Are Hot Kera fused Extensions Removed? 

Keratin fused extensions are easy and non-damaging to remove. A Keratin removal gel and Keratin removal tool are used during the removal process for a seamless and safe removal. The gel helps with any leftover residue similar to our tape removal process. 

Step By Step How To Remove Keratin Fused Hair Extensions 

Keratin or fusion hair extensions are the type of extensions that are applied with a hot fusion tool. The extensions themselves come pre-tipped with keratin.  

When removing fused hair extensions, work systematically, by selecting a row to remove and clip all the other hair up out of the way to help save time and product. 

Before removing the keratin bond, add a generous amount of D-Bond Gel to all the keratin bonds in the row. D-Bond Gel is thick to allow it to cling and breakdown the keratin bond. 

Next, use pro-removal pliers to crack the the tipped hair open  

Gently add a few drops of Vision Removal solution and crack the fusion again steadily and gently  

Continue adding remover and cracking until the keratin is completely crumbled and the extensions are able to easily pulls out. 

Use a good detangling spray in this area and with a fine-tooth comb carefully comb out the tangles. I occasionally use a t-pin to get into tight “dreads” that sometimes happen. The more care you take getting out the tangles without breaking the hair the better hair health you will have. 

I recommend having your extensions removed by a professional but they can also be removed at home. 
If you are doing a home removal take your time and work on a few bonds at a time and rest your arms in between. If you have a loved-one to help ALL the BETTER!
