Let us narrow down and learn something about the ITIPS and the UTIPS today:
The U-tips are also known as the pre-bonded or nail tip. It is a type of hair extension. To apply it, you have to heat a keratin tip, which is usually found at the end of the hair extensions.
That word U-tip describes the shapes of the keratins found at the end of the hair extensions. They refer to the “U” because of the shape which resembles letter u, or the form of a nail.
The purpose of it being shaped in that manner is for it to be able to melt quickly, and form a bond which will seal the hair to the head.
If you need to apply it, first you have to section your hair, and then place a heat shield on your head area. Next, you melt the keratin tip, on to a small section of your natural hair, using a heat connector.
Then you have to roll them together using your fingers, for them to quickly seal the bond and allow a quick fit. ‘ if you need one that will cause no damage on your hair, you can opt for the Italian keratin hair brands, which are the best and they contain a protein which 8s only found in the natural hair.
The time that this hair will last on your head will be determined by the brand of hair that you will use. Generally, it will last for about four months, after which you can remove it and really afresh.
For you to know whether it is time to redo them, you will notice that the bonds are getting loose, and lowering downwards.
However, you need to get them off with the help of a hair professional. Otherwise, your hair may be damaged.
As for the I-tips, they are known as the micro ring or stick tips. It is among the newest applications of hair extensions in the markets. The method is very safe; as they are the hair strands, glued altogether at the tips of the extension.
When a hair professional correctly fits them, they should not cause any damage to your real hair. Using a hook, an equal amount as of the hair extension is pulled out across the micro ring, towards your hairline, and then pressed down around your hair, by the use of pliers.
The rings are so light and will not be bulky to your hair, and they will also be attached so well to the hair, such that there will be no harm or damages caused to your hair. You will have a very natural look at the end of this [process.
Thick hairs will a; way favor this method of hair extension application more, as the rings will be more discreet. However, this does not mean that people with fine hair cannot use it.
The method will give results that are very easy to maintain; you will only have to visit the salon a few times after which your hair will look good and beautiful all long for around four months.
The process will not at any point damage your hair, and it will help you out more if you do not like the u-tip method, because of the use of heat.
