I-tip Hair Extensions Explanation

I-tip Hair Extensions Explanation

I-tip hair extensions are applied to individual strands of your hair, a microbead is threaded into your own hair, an i-tip hair extension is placed into the bead, and the bead is securely closed.

I love these extensions for those with a coarse hair texture, that prefer individual-strand hair extensions. They are a perfect replacement for keratin bond hair extensions, especially if one with dry hair finds removing individual keratin tip or tape extensions difficult to remove.

The Downside of I-Tip Hair Extensions

Individuals with fine or oily hair may find them slipping out easily, which leads to frequent salon visits which makes them less cost-effective compared to other types of hair extensions. Hair styling such as a blow-dry may cause the I-tips to loosen quickly. The total weight applied to your hair is paramount, it is important to apply only as much weight as your own hair can support.

Pros and Cons of I-Tip Hair Extensions

I-tip hair extensions offer a seamless way to enhance your hair by attaching individual strands with microbeads. Ideal for coarse hair textures, they provide a natural look and are easier to remove compared to keratin bond extensions. However, those with fine or oily hair may struggle with them slipping out easily, requiring frequent salon visits. It's crucial to consider the weight applied to your hair to prevent damage and ensure longevity.

If you'd like, I can delve deeper into maintenance tips or styling techniques for i-tip extensions. Just let me know

Different Types of Hair Extensions

The application process is longer than other types of hair extensions, and if your hair is very fine, then I would suggest working with keratin bonds since the keratin is stronger and will hold longer in the hair.

The perfect candidate does not have thick hair, since it will take too many i-tip hairs to fill in and create a perfect blend. Thick hair clients are better suited for Veila Pull-Thru hair extensions or a beaded sew-in weave. The previously mentioned hair extensions will add more hair extensions per square inch of the scalp. The beaded sew-in wefts come in a variety of textures, and styles.

Sew-In Weft Hair Extensions

1) Volume wefts - 3 rows of hair sewn into 1 weft. Perfect for thick and voluminous hair. 

2) Genius wefts - thin wefts that are stackable, and can be cut and customized without unraveling. They are very secure. Perfect for one with lots of fine hair.

3) Curly, wavy, or virgin body machine wefts - this is an average-size weft perfect for those with average hair density.

The i-tip hair extensions are reusable, easy to remove, and undetectable.

1) As with all types of hair extensions, they must be placed on enough of the natural hair to support them.

2) It is imperative to dry the hair to avoid slipping, and carefully brush.

3) Clean sectioning is important to avoid cross-over hairs, which can lead to breakage.

4) Avoid silky products directly on the links.

5) The i-tip hair extensions are reusable, easy to remove, and undetectable. It is not unusual for them to slip out, simply save the strands for reapplication.

6) I-tips offer 360-degree movement, you can wear your hair up.

7) The right products are sulfate and paraben-free shampoo and conditioner.

What is the maintenance routine for i-tip hair extensions?

To maintain i-tip hair extensions, brush hair gently from bottom to top, braid hair before sleeping to prevent tangling, avoid using oil-based products near the bonds, and wash hair with sulfate-free shampoo in a downward motion. Regular touch-ups every 6-8 weeks are also crucial for long-lasting extensions.
