How long will fusion bonded hair extensions last?

This type of bonded lasts approximately 3 months if taken care of correctly. They may require a top-up around the 6-week mark, to keep them looking full for the duration of their life. You should take care only washing upright in a shower never over the bath & detangle prior to washing! However, typically ‘maintenance top up’s’ are required for the glue-gun fusion method, which causing a lot of shedding. The pre-bonded strands used by Bond Hair do not shed so not all clients require a top up at all.

Will extensions damage my hair?

This method is one of the safest and most widely used methods of application in the world and is favoured by models and celebrities. The bonds we use are made from keratin, this is a natural material so wont cause allergies. However you are welcome to a patch test one week prior to your appointment. The bonds are safe as long as they are maintained and removed correctly. If the extensions are abused or removed by someone other than a trained professional then there may be damage caused to the natural hair.

Can I use straightening irons and curling tongs on the extensions?

Yes! We use 100% Human hair extensions so you can style your extensions exactly the same as you would your natural hair.

Can I use any Shampoo’s and Conditioning products on my new hair?

Bond Hair asks you to use Balmain products on your hair which are designed for Hair extensions. You can buy online or request from us. Failure to use Balmain or another Bond certified product will void any rights to refund. You MUST keep conditioner directly away from the bonds themselves, you can condition the lengths of your hair, but coating the bonds in conditioner of any type may soften the bonds and cause them to split.

Will you be able to see the bonds?

Ideally no, you should not be able to see the bonds. However if you have very bleached hair, thin or fine hair there is a possibility the bonds may show through occasionally, for example if it’s a windy day or if your hair becomes greasy. Also if you have very short hair and opt for extensions you may see the bonds if they’re place close to the top of the head. Your consultant will advise you on these things during the initial consultation.

Can I re-use the hair after the first fitting?

No. This method of hair extensions mean the bonds are removed after 3 months and dissolved with acetone, they therefore can’t be reused. After 3 months you will need to have the extensions removed and a new set applied using fresh hair.

Can I dye the hair once it’s in, or touch-up roots?

Yes, you can touch roots up no problem as there will be few bonds in the T-section of the head. If you want to apply a dye to the entire head you can do so but you need to avoid the bonds as much as possible.
