FIVE KINDS OF HAIR

There are two main methods of hair extension in the hair salon: adhesive hair extension and button hair extension.

Adhesive hair extension is to divide the hair used for hair extension into a small group of hair, about 10 to 20 hairs per sputum, and then use keratin-rich glue to wipe the hair roots of a small hair. Take the same amount of real hair at the right place, and quickly connect the hair to the hair root of the real hair, about one centimetre away from the hair. The adhesive will solidify quickly, so that a long hair will be connected. If you don’t need it in the future, go to the hair salon and let the hairdresser heat it to dissolve the glue, or use a special wash to wipe the joint and remove the hair.

The button is also divided into hair, and the long hair to be connected is fixedly attached to the hair root of the hair with a special button. The hair on the top of the head will naturally hang down to cover the button. The advantage of this hair extension is that it is easier to remove the button and long hair when not in the future.

Recently, a new type of seamless glue has been added, and there are pictures in the post. The effect is currently the best.
