What are keratin bonds and how do they work?
Keratin bonds are small extensions that are bonded to your natural hair using keratin, a protein found in hair. The bonds are melted and fused to the hair using heat. This method provides a secure and long-lasting attachment that blends seamlessly with your natural hair.
The answer to wearing keratin bonds with coil-textured hair is a difficult one, this is mainly because the strand-by-strand attachment works best on hair that lays flat. When applying K-tips to textured hair, you really need to examine the hair growth pattern, because if the hair is very oily the extensions will wrap around the natural hair. I have seen stylists wash and flat iron hair prior to application, but once hair is washed, the hair extensions tend to stick straight out of the hair. If you are committed to weekly wash, blow dry, and salon styling, then the method can work, but it may not be your best option.
Let's examine curl patterns;
Curl patterns 1, 2A, 2B, 2C 3A, and 3B work well with keratin bond individual strands and i-tip hair extensions since the hair will lay flat from the weight of the hair extensions, and can be blown out. More coily-type hair (3C, 4A, 4B, and 4C) will have a difficult time keeping their hair straight and may need to consider relaxing or texturizing their curl in order to help their hair stay smooth. Is it worth it? I really don't think so since there are other methods of hair extension attachment that will work better for your curl type, and prevent damage.
Individual strands are appealing since the weight distribution is even throughout the head, and tension is avoided. I do not recommend wearing these types of hair extensions if your scalp is dry, and you oil it. The extensions will slip away, or break down easily.

What Does Noelle Salon Offer For More Glam
If you do plan to have strand-by-strand installed, it is essential that all of your hair (excluding the top and sides) is in the hair extensions. If sections are skipped, then the hair in between the sections may coil around the individual fusion-applied strands.
Also, since a good amount of your own hair is left out of the hair extensions, it is essential to match your texture perfectly. We do offer a variety of keratin bond extension curl patterns, and we may perm the extensions to create a perfect blend. That being said, we will only perm high-quality, virgin raw, hair color extensions. Processed hair extensions, or non-remy hair extensions can break during the perming process. Great Lengths keratin bond extensions are a great option for women looking to add natural volume and length to their hair without causing any damage. These extensions delicately attach to your own hair and expand and contract with water, ensuring they never pinch or cause breakage. With a lifespan of three to six months, Great Lengths keratin bond extensions provide a long-lasting solution for achieving the desired look.
A braided weave tends to work very well on coil-textured hair, but many of these clients do not like the traction that is created from the braided sew-in method. Instead, we have used the micro-link hair extension technique, which offers far less tension. Tracks of hair are sewn around the links that are placed onto your own hair. But, as with keratin bonds, skipping sections and areas is not recommended.
Braided sew-ins have been popular for decades, and they are still tried and true. When your own hair is braided, it is important to follow patterns that avoid temples and weak areas of the hair. Weight distribution is important, and a pro will know which pattern will work best for your own hair type.
In conclusion, keratin bonds, and -tip hair extensions will work on oily hair, with some extra effort, and only you will know if the effort is worth the gain.
