Frequently Asked Questions
1. What Are Bonded Hair Extensions?
Bonded hair extensions are a type of semi-permanent extension. It is applied close to the scalp by attaching a small weft of extension to the natural hair using a special adhesive or bonding material. The bonding material is activated by heat or ultrasonic waves.
2. What Are Fusion Hair Extensions?
Fusion hair extension is also known as pre-bonded hair extensions. It is applied by using a heating tool to bond a small number of hair strands to the natural hair. The heating tool melts the small amount of keratin on the tip of the extension strand and attaches it to the natural hair. After that, the fusion bond is rolled and fused together with a heating tool to create a long-lasting bond.
3. How Long Do Bonded Hair Extensions Last?
The lifespan of bonded hair extensions and fusion hair extensions can vary depending on these factors:

Bonded extensions last 6 to 12 weeks before needing to be replaced or reapplied. If someone experiences shedding or extensions slippage, they must check if they are avoiding heat, using gentle hair products, and not pulling or tugging on the extensions.

9. Are Bonded Extensions And Fusion Extensions Damaging?
Both bonded, and fusion hair extensions can be damaging to your natural hair if they are not applied or maintained properly. Improper application and maintenance can cause breakage, hair loss, and scalp irritation.
Bonded hair extensions are applied using a bonding agent that is melted onto your natural hair. If the bonding agent is applied too close to your scalp, it can cause discomfort, irritation, or even hair breakage when it's time to remove the extensions. If the extensions are left installed for too long or not removed properly, then extensions cause damage to natural hair.
Fusion hair extensions are applied using heat to melt the bond onto your natural hair. If the heat is too high or the extensions are kept installed for too long, it will be damaging to your natural hair. Furthermore, if the bonds are not properly and evenly placed on the hair, extensions become too heavy for natural hair, which can lead to hair breakage and even hair loss.
So, opting for an experienced stylist is as important as purchasing high-grade extensions. Experienced stylists take necessary precautions to minimize the risk of damage to your natural hair. On a personal level, following proper care, not missing regular maintenance appointments, and using gentle products are the best things you can do for a better experience of wearing bonded and fusion hair extensions.
