When it comes to the type of hair extensions, their categories named by their application methods are taken into consideration. If you are going to choose a set of hair extensions, the first or second thing you need to think about is the application method. Browsing through the hair extensions market, you can easily notice that there are several different methods to be chosen.
Generally speaking, the four most commonly used hair extensions application methods are: I-Tip, U-Tip, Tape in and Clip in.
I-Tip: I-Tip hair extensions are also called as micro loop hair extensions which are applied strand by strand using micro ring or bead. By using this kind of hair extensions, your hair is looped through the micro ring and then you can secure the ring with a plier. To move, simply reverse this process by squeezing the ring in the opposing direction. The extensions can keep in place for several months, depending on how fast your hair grows. Besides, you can use them by replacing the micro rings.
U-Tip: U-tip hair extensions are also names as nail-tip or fusion hair extensions. During the process of application, the extensions will be attached to your hair using Keratin glue, and they can last for several months after the application. When it comes to the removal of the extensions, remover fluid is needed to do a favor.
Tape in: Just as its name implies, tape in hair extensions are applied to your hair using double sides tapes. Compared with the two methods mentioned above, this one is relatively easy and quick to apply. Just like the micro loop hair extensions, they can be reused as well.
Clip in: At present, clip in hair extensions gain a plenty of popularity. The first reason explains for their being well-welcome is their versatility. They are applied to your hair by using ‘snap’ clips and the whole process takes only a few minutes. Besides, compared with tape in and fusion hair extensions, they use no glue in the application, avoiding causing gluing damage to your hair and scalp.
