Types Of Permanent Hair Extensions
Some people asked: Do permanent hair extensions exist? The so-called types of permanent hair extensions refer to the hair extensions that can be used for a long time until you want to uninstall it. There are several types of permanent hair extensions and semi permanent hair extensions on the market now. Generally speaking, all the permanent hair extensions for thin hair are real human hair extensions. And the real human hair is also the best permanent hair extensions that can last a long time.
I know that these are a really popular kind to get. The extension is on a “track” of 2-4 inches and sandwiched between two pieces of bioadhesive tape. These will last for about six to eight weeks. A plus side is that they take way less time to put in, around an hour; however, apparently, you are somewhat limited with styling choices, as the tracks will show in a high bun or pony.
These hairpieces are woven or even glued into your natural hair, after it is tightly braided, using thread. These are the most damaging for your hair.
These are the kind I got. My stylist Jordan will only do this type for his clients; he says they are the most natural-looking, long-lasting (they will last up to 5-6 months), and best for your hair. They are individual strands of hair that get attached to your natural hair with a keratin glue and heat tool. Each strand has a small, flat, square-shaped bond tip that holds all of the individual hairs together. Your stylist will take tiny, tiny sections of your real hair and place the extension bond over it, about an inch from your scalp, and use a heat tool to mold and shape the melted keratin around your hair.
These bonds are attached strand by strand, row by row, staring at the base of your head and working upwards. The concept is that your natural hair covers up all these bonds so they are super discrete. It also means that you can wear your hair up in any style and you won’t be able to see them! These kinds of extensions are the most labor-intensive, (it took about 3 hours to do mine but can take longer). I ended up having 160 individual strands of hair attached to my head. Jordan ordered 4 different shades of blonde, two of which had kind of an ombre thing going on to blend with the darker, underside of my hair, to ensure everything looked natural and you couldn’t tell the difference between my real hair and the extensions.
Similar to keratin extensions, individual strands of hair are attached to your hair with tiny microbeads, which are clamped/locked onto the real hair sections. There’s no heat or glue used to fasten them, so you can reuse the hair extensions once your real hair grows out. This process is also relatively quicker than keratin extensions, around 1.5 to 3 hours. Your stylist will just move them back farther up your head. You’ll probably need to go in to get this done every 8 weeks, so definitely more upkeep involved here.

How Long Do Permanent Hair Extensions Last?
Although it is called permanent hair extensions, as we know, it is not permanent. Most of them can last three to six months. Maybe you will feel not comfortable at the beginning, but regardless of how fast your hair grows, you will get used to them, and they will stop being uncomfortable after that initial beginning phase. Besides all that, they truly feel and look like real hair, so there was never any weirdness with the texture or color or anything. Besides, you need to take care of permanent hair extensions for short hair to increase in service life. Don’t wash your hair too often, use a sulfate-free shampoo, sleep in a low ponytail or braid to prevent tangles, etc.
