They last about two to three months with proper care and upkeep.” So YES!!! I-TIPS ARE THREADED THROUGH A COPPER BEAD WITH YOUR NATURAL HAIR AND RE-USABLE!
2. Why Do we Need to Re-tip Hair Extensions

If i-tip hair extensions are worn for a longer periods of time, the itip bond will eventually begin to break down their keratin glue and become softer than it was originally. This is to be expected due to the fact that the hair extensions will regularly become wet through washing and styling, and over the course of 4 months this will weaken their bond. This will be even more apparent if the bond has been cut before the extensions were fitted. It is not recommended to cut the bonds, as this allows more water to enter as the seal has been broken, causing the bonds to soften more rapidly.

3. Is it useful to re-tip the itip hair extensions?

The main benefit of re-tipping hair extensions is that it is a cost effective way of making the most of your hair extensions. As you are wearing them over a 3-5 month period they will slowly grow down until 4 months has passed and they are ready to be removed. If however, the hair is still in good condition, you can reuse the hair for a second time round, however you will not be able to fit again with the existing bond as it will not hold as well as it would have the first time round. By re-tipping the hair extensions you are starting a fresh with a new solid tip, that can be fitted and will stay in place for a number of extra months until you decide to change the hair for a brand new set.
