In most salons today, hairstylists use a variety of techniques to add length and volume to their client's hair. One of the more popular techniques used is the hair fusion technique.
According to Rhonda Robinson of Stylesbyrhonda.com, hair fusion is the process of using hair adhesives to fuse together natural hair strands with artificial hair strands. Stylists also use a tool called a heat connector to bond the adhesive, natural hair and artificial hair together.
Hair fusion techniques are used to add natural-looking thickness to thinning hair, add length to short hair, or both.
Unlike most other hair extension techniques, hair fusion is virtually undetectable and can be washed, conditioned and styled like natural hair.
The hair fusion process takes an average of five hours to complete and the fusion style can be worn for a minimum of three months.
According to Texasbeautysupplies.com, when removing fused hair extensions, be sure to use an oil-based fusion hair remover that contains natural ingredients. Removers that contain acetone or alcohol can cause serious hair damage.
