What Are Micro-links?
Nowadays, Micro link Hair Extensions are made using the latest technology. They are also known as micro rings or microbeads. These are the smallest and non-glue hair extensions. They are lightweight and blend in perfectly with your natural hair. No one will find out if you are wearing extensions.
Micro Link Hair Extensions have a small metal tube attached at one end of the hair extension. The tubes are used to combine the strands of your natural hair with hair extensions. To integrate them, you do not even have to braid your hair. To put them on, you need to go section by section one at a time. The beads of the micro links are attached to the base of your natural hair. Thus, they mostly remain undetected. Micro links are comfortable, and when installed properly, they won't loosen up by simply pulling or rubbing your hair.
The micro links are user-friendly and you can use hot tools to style them and can easily detangle your wet hair too.If you are planning to purchase micro link hair extensions, browse through the Niawigs website and choose the one that serves your needs.
How Long Does it Take to Install Micro Bead Extensions?
The installation process of the micro links or micro bead hair extensions is a bit lengthy and can take around two hours to install them. However, the amount of time taken to install these extensions depends on the amount of hair you are combining with these extensions.
You can attach micro links hair extensions to your hair using two methods. The first method is to attach I-tip hair extensions to small sections of your hair using small rubber-coated or silicone-coated metal microbeads and closing those using pliers. The other way is by combining weft hair with small pieces of natural hair above and below the weft.
When you are wearing a micro link hair extension, ensure that the rubber-coated or silicone-coated metal links must be fixed close enough to your scalp, to give the effect of hair growing from the scalp. Also, ensure that the micro links are not attached too close to the scalp as the metal tube might cause irritation and itching. Remember not to fix the micro links too tightly.
People with medium to fine hair textures can wear them as the beads used to attach the hair extensions are so small that they blend easily. However, if your hair is weak or damaged and prone to breakage or shedding, you should not try the micro link hair extensions. People with thin hair should avoid them too because if your scalp is visible, the microbeads would be visible too. In addition, it can further damage your fragile hair. In such cases, you can choose other alternatives such as sewn-in wigs to add volume to your hair.
Micro links easily blend with your natural hair and let you move them freely without worrying about them getting loose. After you install the micro link, they easily become a part of your hair, and you can style them like you style your own hair, because the base of the micro link extensions is usually flat. Thus, you can easily style them into a ponytail or whichever style you want.
At Niawigs, you can choose from many different types, sizes, styles, and colors of micro link hair extensions that perfectly fit the texture and color of your natural hair. So what are you waiting for? Buy one now!
How to Safely Remove?
To safely remove your micro links hair extensions, keep the following things handy - a pintail comb, 2 hair clips and hair extension pliers. You can also use pliers with a narrow tip if you do not have hair extension pliers. Remember not to squeeze the microbeads too hard, which might cause the beads to crumple or fold. Here are the steps:
- Section out your hair containing micro links from the rest of your hair using a pintail comb. Then take one part that contains micro link hair extensions and clip the remaining part out of the way. Always start at the base of the back of your head and move to the top of your head.
- Hold the ring or bead of the micro link using pliers and squeeze in the opposite direction to which they were flattened. Once the ring widens the extensions become loose and are easier to remove.
- Once 2 to 3 hair extensions are removed, comb your natural hair with your fingers thoroughly to cleanse and remove tangles.
- After removing all the micro links hair extensions, you can comb your hair using a normal comb.
