Itip extensions, micro link extensions, Utip extensions, and micro-bead extensions are all names dropped by celebrity stylists when referring to some of the methods used by their crème clients to achieve high fashion looks with minimal damage. The true secret to this undamaging hair styling method is in the way that it is done.
How do Itip Extensions work?
Itip extensions are made of 100% virgin hair, that is taken and added to the middle of your hairline using a hair hooking tool. The micro-link extensions are those that use micro-links to hook together the extensions and the natural growth of the hair. These links, once fixed near your scalp, are flattened using hair pliers. This process is the same for micro-bead extensions and can easily be passed off as natural.
These extensions are placed in an area on your head where your hair is thickest and adds massive amounts of volume and length to your hair. The most advantageous part of the Itip extension era is that maintenance of these extensions’ costs close to nothing. The micro-link extensions or micro-bead extensions simply can be readjusted close to your scalp if the natural growth of your hair becomes longer.
How long do Itip Extensions last?
Itip extensions, unlike Utip extensions, are undamaging to your hair. These extensions have only one fallout – the build-up of hair product, shampoo, and conditioning oils in your hair due to the presence of the links or beads.
Itip extensions can last between six to eight weeks and can be maintained for longer as well. In contrast, Utip extensions are bonded to your hair strands, and removing these can cause breakage and damage. Utip extensions also tend to stick out when growing out of your natural hair as the bond on the strands is clearly visible with time.
Why are Itip Extensions the best solution for longer and fuller hair?
This is perhaps, the most asked question in the hair industry, and pops up often on our website – knockoutvirginhair.com – more than you'd imagine.
There are far too many reasons for Itip extensions to have been dubbed the best solution for longer and fuller hair. For starters, the Itip extensions can be used by women who have scanty and short growth. These extensions are recommended for women and men with between two to five inches of natural growth of hair at a minimum. Since there is no bonding involved with the extensions, these extensions are almost completely natural to look at.
This means, that for women and men who fear that a gust of wind or a bad angle may reveal their itip extensions, you can rest easy. The Itip extensions are placed so close to your scalp, that they are virtually invisible to the naked eye. They are well hidden in the folds of your natural hair. So, unless you have super hair growth, you can take a chill pill for about six to eight weeks between hair appointments!
What's more, is that you don't need to compromise on the natural texture or color of your hair while installing Itip extensions to your hair. This is because the Itip extensions are made of real, 100% virgin human hair. This hair comes in a vast variety of textures and colors, and since it is virgin hair, can be processed a relatively large number of times without the fear of serious damage. Itip extensions, therefore, can be processed to be as close to your natural hair as possible to make people question whether you had a chop at all or not!
The last, and most important reason that Itip extensions are the best solution to add volume and length to your hair, is that since these extensions are made of natural hair, and are tied together through links, or beads, they do not become heavy after a certain length, longer extensions do not become a pain or a sore spot at all!
