Fusion hair extensions are extensions that are fused to your hair undergoing a process called fusion bonding. To create a fusion bond you use a heated adhesive bead and bonding gun that is attached to the weft of your natural hair, strand by strand. The fusion bond is made out of a keratin bond whose molecular structure is very similar to the keratin in human hair.
Ok, enough of that smarty pants definition. Basically fusions extensions are a great way of creating length or volume for a long lasting period of time. Depending on how fast your hair grows and how you maintain the extensions they can last in your hair for up to 6 months. When you have fusion extensions you need to be very careful when shampooing, combing and styling them. If you are too aggressive the extensions can become knotted and it will become very difficult to repair them. Another downside of fusions is that they can weaken your hair and pull on your natural hair. The reason for this is because the heated bond is adhered to your natural hair and the bond needs to be broken to be able to be removed.
There are also some non-hair fusion extensions. You can spice up your look by adding some tinsel, feathers or fun colors to your hair just by having them fused in.
We have seen many celebrities with fusions, most notoriously is Britney Spears. There are many pictures of Britney with her fusions showing right thru her hair. Thats a big no-no make sure you hide your secret, you don’t want people to know that your hair is that long and luxurious. So when it comes time for you to decide on how you want to change your hair ask yourself: “fuse in or fuse out”.
