Heat Protectants are in liquid or physical forms. Talking about the liquid form, we usually talk about heat protectant spray. You spray it all over the wearer’s hair, and when attaching hair extensions with heat, it won’t damage other parts of the hair or scalp.

Physical heat protectors are ususally in a ciculr or rectangular form. Thread a strand of hair through it, and slide it up and let it stick to the wearer’s scalp, and then attach the fusion hair extension to avoid heat damage to the natural hair and scalp.

4. Removable Double-Sided Tape

Given the longevity of our Remy tape extensions, it is more likely that the tape will become damaged than the natural hair strands. In that case, carefully remove the torn tape, cut a fresh piece, and apply it to the extensions!

13. Hair Color Ring

What are the easiest extensions to install?

Temporary hair extensions are much easier to install than permanent hair extensions. With temporary hair extensions, wearers can attach or take them off any time they want.

Temporary hair extensions include halo hair extensions, clip-in hair extensions, and ponytail hair extensions.

Permanent hair extensions are professional hair extensions, which usually need a hairstylist’s help and professional hair extension supplies for installation. They are much more difficult and time-consuming to install.

Permanent hair extensions include tape-in hair extensions, fusion (hot fusion and cold fusion) hair extensions, micro link hair extensions, and weft hair extensions. Among these tape-in hair extensions are the easiest to install and the most popular type of hair extensions.

What hair extensions last longer on head?

With permanent hair extensions, as new natural hair continues to grow, it will eventually squeeze out of the keratin bond, and need reattachment. Here are how long will each type of hair extension will last on the head with the help of all practical hair accessories and tools.

Halo hair extensions and clip-in hair extensions are temporary hair extensions, wearers can attach and remove daily or any time they want, and without needing a hairstylist. Wearers can also put on or remove ponytail extensions themselves and pretty much anytime they want. So we won’t be listing these three. We will only concentrate on permanent hair extensions.

Keratin Bond, Pre-Bonded, Fusion or Hot Fusion Hair Extensions
All these terms mean the same thing. Keratin Bond hair extensions are attached by melting the keratin bond at the tip of the hair strand and as it cools down, it will fuse with the wearer’s natural hair to form a bond. Keratin bond hair extensions normally will stay attached on the wearer’s hair for 3-4 months before it needs to be readjusted.

Microlink Hair Extensions
Similar to micro-loop, micro-loop or keratin bond (applied the cold way), and a few other cold fusion hair extensions, they share very similar attaching techniques, which is to thread the wearer’s natural hair through a tiny ring or holed bead, and clip it tight-closed with a hair extension plier. Microlink hair extensions will remain in the wearer’s hair between 8-10 weeks, or 2-3 months before reattachment.

Nano Ring Hair Extensions
Similar to microlinks, nano ring extensions use tiny, undetectable rings instead. The rings are threaded onto a small section of the wearer’s natural hair, and the hair extension is then inserted through the ring and clamped in place with hair extensions tools. How long nano ring hair extensions stay attached to the natural hair depends on several factors, such as how well the extensions are maintained and the stylist’s skill. Typically, nano ring extensions can last 6-8 weeks or 1-2 months before reattachment.

Tape-In Hair Extensions
Tape-in hair extensions are the most popular type of hair extension that uses double-sided tape to attach the hair extensions to the natural hair. They are permanent hair extensions, cost less and much easier than other permanent hair extensions to attach. The tape is applied to a small section of natural hair. In every 6-8 weeks, the wearer will need her tape-in hair extensions reattached.

Weft Hair Extensions
Weft hair extensions or sew-in weft hair extensions are sewn into a braid or cornrow in the natural hair. They can usually last for 6-8 weeks before they need to be taken out and reinstalled.

● What hobbies and interests do you have?

I enjoy exercising. That’s a very important part of my life. I’m a super active person.

● Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

No, not that I know of. I’m a very realistic person. If you mention outlandish stuff like aliens, monster in the bush, I’d be out of my mind.

● What is something you would love to do in the future?

I want to learn how to swim. I know it might sound a bit sarcastic, as I just mentioned that I enjoy doing exercise. Unfortunately, swimming hasn’t been on my list. I think I better catch up on that.

● What wig would you wear if you wore one and why?

I’d give HW1 a try. It looks natural and beautiful. Though we categorize it as a medical wig, almost any female can wear it. It’s got a lace mesh base, breathable, and flexible. You don’t need glue or tape to fix it to your head. Pretty easy, and it gives you all the long hair look a girl could want.

  • How would people in the office describe you?

At our end-of-year conference, my colleagues agreed that I’m a warm hearted, positive, and easy-going teammate. It gives me a sense of reward.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I don’t like being confined in a very small space. I believe it was due to a childhood experience. When I was six years old, I accidentally tripped and fell into a shallow well. I had to wait for two hours before I was found. Since then, I’ve found I just can’t tolerate the idea of being alone. I guess that makes me an active team player.

  • You are happiest when…

This may sound boastful, but it’s true. It’s just part of my nature to help others. When I actually see that what I did for them has helped them achieve something, it just makes me excited.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

I recomend HS25V. Oftentimes I’d introduce this model to my new clients to start with, so they can introduce this to their new clients see if hair systems are what really suit them, before they carry on with lace or mono hair systems.

  • Do you have any pet hates?

I’m a typical town girl, you know. I’m into cats and dogs. But things like snakes, all sorts of insects, and hamsters; they are not my cup of tea. So, never get them near me.

  • Which mens/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that?

Most of my clietns are after Q6. And their clients happened to be guys who are into hair systems that are durable and natural. Q6 is a pretty good pick for them. With proper care, it should easily last 6 months.

  • Do you have a phobia? If you do, what is it?

I’m always afaid of heights. With any tall buildings, be it a chimney or TV tower, I look at it, and imagine I’m looking down right from the top, it will give me sweaty palms.

Not at all. I generally love all pets. Dog, cats, guinea pigs, rabits, etc. I love them.

With me personally, the best-selling hair system has been HS1. It has what it’s required out of a good quality hair system, in terms of a natural-looking hairline, undetectable scalp, etc. Most wearers and salon owners are familiar with it. Plus, all our clients have faith in the quality of this hair system. According to their feedback, this is an easy-to-attach, easy-to-maintain hair system for both men and women.

I don’t know why I share the same gene with Doraemon. I’m scared of rats. I’m a 6’3″, but I hate rats; seeing one really freaks me out.

  • Which men/womens hair system do you sell the most? Why that model?

New Australia. When it first came out in early 2023, it made me top of sales. I think most wearers like it because at the design statge, our experts considered all possible aspects people could want from a hairpiece, such as a natural look, a level of comfort, and affordablity; it’s similar to lace, but most wearers can afford.
