If you’re looking to add length or volume to your hair, hair extensions are a great choice. Although, with so many different techniques to choose from, it can be hard to know the best hair extension method to go for. 

Micro bond hair extensions, also known as pre-bonded hair extensions, are one of the most well-known and popular types on the market.

So, what are micro bond extensions? This technique involves attaching the extensions to the natural hair using keratin, a protein that your hair is made of. The extensions are fitted by strand and applied using a heat connector, which melts the keratin bond to the hair. 

Here are some of the advantages of choosing these extensions:

Firstly, one of the key advantages is that this method is very effective in adding length and volume to the hair. So, if you want to go for a completely new look, they can help you achieve this. 

Whether you have long, short, fine or thick hair, these extensions are also suited to all hair types. This means that even if you have thin hair, you can still achieve thick and luscious locks. 

Some extension types can be very noticeable in the hair, which can really ruin the look. However, micro bond extensions are virtually undetectable and offer a very natural look. 

When getting hair extensions, a concern for many is that they will be uncomfortable. Depending on the number of extensions added to your hair, your hair may feel a lot heavier which can take getting used to. 

Micro bond extensions are in fact known as being one of the most comfortable extension types and you will likely even forget you have them in your hair.

Another great thing about these extensions is that they can be matched to your natural hair colour. So, if you want to keep things as natural as possible, the strands will blend into your hair and won’t look obvious.

Meanwhile, if you want to enhance your hair colour, individual strands can be used to create highlights or lowlights. 

While some extension techniques only last 4-6 weeks, micro bond extensions can actually last for 3 to 4 months. 

The length that they last will depend on how well you treat them though. Your stylist will guide you through everything you need to do to maintain your hair extensions.

This includes using the right products to wash your hair, using the right type of brush and avoiding using too much heat on your hair.
