Bonding is a method done by applying hair glue to a section of weft hair onto a person’s natural hair. It is advised to use it for 3 weeks as it begins to loosen up and the attractiveness of the hair decreases
The fusion method involves a machine similar to a hot glue gun which is used to attach human hair extensions to one’s natural hair. This method is very time-consuming and takes around 3 or more hours to install and needs re-positioning every 2-3 months. This method is more damaging to natural hair due to the use of different chemicals in the glue and use of heat
Micro-ring hair extensions use small metal (usually aluminium) rings or beads to attach the extension hair to the natural hair. This method does not cause much damage but needs re-positioning every 2-3 months.
