Fusion Hair Extensions Come in Strands
Unlike tape-in hair extensions, for example, fusion hair extensions come in strands of hair. With the tape-in method, wefts make the job easier and more effective, but with fusion extensions, individual strands of hair help to ensure that once the application is complete, the hair blends well and looks natural.
How Many Fusion Extensions Do You Need for a Full Head?
It depends on your goals for your hair. Fusion extensions come in packs of 20 or 25 strands each depending on the brand. Each of these strands has a small, flat, square-shaped tip that holds all the individual hairs together.
A strand is made of around one gram of hair. A full head of hair is about five to nine packs of hair. This means you could have 100-180 hair extension strands, more or less, for a full head installation. While this may vary with other extension types, this is a generally good benchmark standard for hair amounts.
How Long Do Fusion Extensions Last?
Again, different brands of fusion extensions come in different sizes and levels of quality, but fusion hair can last for three to four months. Although fusion hair extensions cost more up front, they need less maintenance than tape in hair extensions.
