Keratin Hot Fusion Hair Extensions

I opted for a half-head of keratin-bond extensions. These are tiny strands of real, virgin (unprocessed) human hair. Generally, you'll come in for a consultation ahead of time so the stylist can match your color and order the hair, but some salons have many shades on-hand, ready to be used same-day.

The extensions themselves look like a small wisp of your own hair, but with a keratin-based dried "glue" at one end. They can be curled, dyed, straightened, styled with heat—everything you'd do to your own hair. In order to attach them, either heat or ultrasonic waves (depending on where you go and what type of device is used) fuses that keratin "glue" to your hair. The extensions are placed in rows so that they always remain strategically covered by another piece of hair, even if you wear a ponytail.

What You Need to Know

My dry hair was sectioned off, and the stylist worked in rows, scooping tiny sections of my hair up (much like applying highlights) and placing an individual extension about a 1/2-inch away from the root. Then, she used a tool to fuse it on. The process takes between one and two hours and finishes with a blowout and dry cut in order to ensure the extensions are layered or evened out to perfection.

My First Reaction

Damn, I look good! I have princess hair!

My Second Reaction

Wait...this feels weird. Physically, there is a tiny "bead" (think of it like a bit of clear nail polish that hardens to a small spot of your hair) where the keratin "glue" is attached to your hair. When you run your hands through your hair, you will feel them, and at first it's like, "Oh, so now I'm going to feel like I have hard stuff stuck in my hair at all times? Why did I do this? Was this a mistake?" But then, you look in the mirror and see your princess-hair reflection again, and you take a million selfies (at least that's what I did) and all of that fear fades away.

After the First Wash...

You have to be careful with extensions, specifically the bonds. You can't yank a brush through your hair or clamp a flatiron onto the glue spot. Many experts also recommend you don't use products with sulfates, which can break down the bonds. Even if you follow all of those directions, it's still possible that the extensions will loosen over time. Losing one to three extensions is normal. Losing 10 or more is not. In my case, the latter happened, likely as a result of my bonds not being tight enough, as well as the weight of the extension being too heavy for the strand of hair it was attached to. For that reason, I did lose a bit of my own hair over the course of the three months that I had extensions, but my situation was atypical.

The short story: You can't do it yourself. Head to the salon! Keratin bonds are dissolved with a solution of either acetone, alcohol, baby oil, or a mixture of two or more. The stylist uses a wrench-like tool to apply some pressure after soaking the bond (if you're concerned about your hair's safety, you might not like this part!), and then the loosened bond is carefully slid off of your own hair. With proper application and timely removal, you shouldn't lose more than a few strands of your own hair throughout the process. Technically, there is no way around shedding some hair in the process, but the more experienced the stylist and the better the application and product, the more this risk can be minimized.

Now that I'm extensions-free, I'm definitely missing my longer, fuller hair. What I'm not missing? Slowly sliding out a loose extension every time I blow-dry or brush my hair. That was traumatic! Would I get extensions again? Definitely. But I wouldn't go to just any salon or try just any brand, which was the mistake I made. Next time, I'm heading to a very well known salon like Warren-Tricomi for a half head of keratin extensions with their expert staff. Or, I'm trying tape-ins, which sound like a cool solution that might involve a little less risk of damage. In the meantime, I cut a few inches off of my ends to minimize the thinned-out look (it's nothing extreme, but noticeable to me), and I'm taking Olly Undeniable Beauty gummy vitamins for hair, skin, and nails , as well as experimenting with Women's Rogaine foam.
