Changing your hairstyle is also one of the oldest proven methods. Hair beauty professionals and their clients alike choose fusion hair extensions for their many benefits.

Hypoallergenic material is used to make the bonds: keratin glue. Those with sensitive scalps should pay particular attention to this.

Hair extensions of this type are universal: they are suitable for everyone. You can achieve length and volume regardless of whether your hair is thin or dense, curly or straight, blond or brunette.

It is possible to use hot fusion hair extensions with short or thin hair if a proper selection of hair type and structure is made, as well as professional application.

You can use them for up to 9-12 months if you follow your hair extension stylist's instructions and take care of them properly.

You can create any hairstyle with keratin fusion hair extensions: ponytails, braids, curls, straighten your curls just like you did before.

One of the main advantages of fusion hair extensions is that no one will know you're wearing them. Your natural hair blends perfectly with them. Colored keratin glue is now available for matching your own hair color to your hair extensions. You will always feel confident and your styling will always look natural!

Keratin bond extensions have many benefits, as you can see. Nevertheless, fusion bonded hair extensions have some downsides - let's discuss them.


Getting your hair extensions applied takes three to four hours: you can expect to spend about three hours in the salon. Your hair extension specialist's qualifications and the amount of material determine the length of the procedure. Hair extensions need to be removed, rebonded, and reapplied every three to four months by the stylist. Removing hair extensions and applying them again takes about the same amount of time.

Salons are the only places where this can be done. Hair and scalp can be damaged by the Fusion hair extension procedure if you do it yourself at home. The same applies to the removal of hair extensions, which should be performed by a professional.

High temperatures should be avoided. To prevent the keratin bonds from coming into contact with the hot surface of the blowdryer or curling iron, use them with extreme caution.

Your hair extensions should also have high-quality keratin bonds. In this article, we discuss how to choose the right keratin glue pellets. Make sure you read it.

Getting used to the newly installed hair extensions may cause some discomfort: some women report taking several days to adjust. Several people have also reported headaches and itching.

In order to avoid these problems, we recommend using micro keratin bonds. Your hair barely feels them and they are very gentle on it.

Your hair extension stylist's experience is one of the most important factors here. You can get headaches and experience other unpleasant sensations if you have your hair extensions installed incorrectly. It usually happens when hair extensions are attached too close to the scalp, causing additional tension and pulling on your natural hair. Hair loss could result from this weakening of the roots!

Regular maintenance and care are required. The original gloss, volume, and beauty of your hair can be lost if you rub it too hard while washing or brushing it.

In addition, you should choose the right shampoo and avoid oil-based hair care products that can weaken keratin bonds and cause hair loss.

There are pros and cons to fusion bonded hair extensions, but if you have naturally thin hair, this procedure may not be suitable. Here's why.

Hair extensions are often made from coarse Asian or thick Indian hair. Some specialists argue that this procedure is not suitable for women who have thin and soft natural hair, so these types of hair are obviously not suitable for them. There is simply no hair that suits you!

It is important to choose the right type of hair extensions based on your hair type:

  • Virgin Slavic hair is usually recommended for fine, soft, uncolored hair. You get a unique, high-quality product with this type of hair. A single donor provides the raw material, resulting in a unique color, length, and weight for each bundle.

  • Russian hair has a slight density and color. With a wide variety of shades and textures, this is the best value for money.

  • Choose European hair if you want dense, coarse hair (or if you want long strands).
