Where hair extensions are concerned, the glue bond has been the culprit of damaged and broken hair.
But Extension Professional, a hair extension system that has celebrity clients including Yasmin le Bon, Ellie Goulding and Josie Gibson, offers a safer alternative to getting longer, thicker locks.
Using Extension professional's unique keratin formula, individual bonds are attached to the hair. This colour-coded keratin is designed to stick to itself only and not to the real hair. It is then sealed together to create a sleeve for the natural hair to fit safely in.
This then allows the natural hair to grow whilst wearing them. Technology called the Cold Fusion System is used to further ensure no damage is done to the hair.
With super fine hair that leaves me unable to do much, I have always been interested in extensions but was put off by horror stories.
So when I heard about Extension Professional, I jumped at the chance to give it a go. The lovely Louise Bailey, who is based at the gorgeous FOUR London salon, gave me a consultation before the fitting, working out exactly which colours were needed to create the perfect match.
Just one hour later, I left with wonderfully thick, bouncy locks. They are super easy to style and look great curled with a wand. The maintenance isn't time-consuming – make sure to brush the roots and try not to apply conditioner directly to the bond.
