Our stick tip hair extensions are bonded with our specially developed keratin polymer. This enables us to compact the bond into a tiny stick tip suitable for smaller micro ring hair extensions application. This special formula means that the bond is flexible, so that it can be used for repeat salon professional applications. The special bond will not break down, flatten or shed after application.
Micro Ring Hair Extensions
Micro Ring Hair Extension continue to be the most popular of hair extension application techniques. Micro ring methods remain the most common when using stick tip hair extensions or pre bonded hair extensions.
For this reason, we have developed our range of Celebrity Secret Virgin Remy Hair Extensions to incorporate a tiny tip of our special keratin polymer. This is small and durable and will fit the smallest of micro rings for application.
Micro rings are made from a small thin ring of copper. The real benefit of using copper for creating micro rings is that the copper is soft to squeeze flat with the application pliers thereby allowing it to flatten completely for a tight grip on the extensions hair.
The extension strands attached using micro rings are more generally known as Micro Ring Hair Extensions. The industry name for this type of hair extension type is Stick Tip Hair Extensions or ‘I Tip Hair’. Any of these term refers to the process of attaching hair extensions with copper rings.
Micro Rings Sizes
Sizes of the micro rings used to fit micro ring hair extensions can vary according to the pre bonded stick tip extensions used. The inner dimension of the ring will be determined by the size of the tiny keratin tip bonding the extension hair in the single hair extension strand. A slightly larger micro ring will be needed for 1g hair extension strands than 0.5g or 0.8g hair extension strands.
Secret Hair Extensions MicroRing Extensions / Stick Tip Hair Extensions are made with a special polymer keratin which allows us to make the tips extra small for use with smaller sized micro rings. The advantage of using smaller micro rings for extensions installation is that more extension strands can usually be accommodated in each client head of natural hair.
Micro ring hair extensions are an excellent choice as they are fitted without the need for heat or glue in application. Micro ring extensions are easier to maintain after several weeks as the clients own hair grows down.
Micro ring hair extensions can be applied using shorter copper micro rings. This type of micro rings can include an internal screw lining for added grip. Micro rings can also come silicone lined for a cushioned grip.
In our salons, Secret Hair Extensions UK prefer to fit our micro ring hair extensions using a tiny tube made of thin copper. We have these micro rings custom made for us to our unique specification that allows the thinnest copper material for tighter fitting. These are manufactured with the optimum length for increased surface area in order to make contact with the stick tip / micro ring hair extension strand. These can be purchased here on our micro rings page
Micro ring hair extensions offer the wearer the benefit of including a long lasting bond. Because the tiny tip of keratin we use in the manufacture of our extensions is contained within the copper micro ring, it will not be melted by accidental or direct application of heat, e.g., from straightening tools or heated appliances, to the bond. Enclosing the entire keratin tip within the micro ring means the bond is less likely to be broken down by products, such as conditioners or oils, or from natural oils produced on the scalp.
