Stick Tip/I-Tip/Micro Ring Hair Extensions, are applied using a traditional or silicone-lined micro ring, to securely hold the extension in place, allowing for the application to be applied without using heat or any adhesives.
The hair used is known as Chinese Remy, made from 100% human hair and this implies that they are of high-quality and are cuticle correct. The hair strands all run parallel in one direction, this prevents tangling. The hair strands can last for at least two or three months as long as correct care and attention is taken on a regular basis. The hair can be washed, curled, and straightened like your natural hair.
How many strands would an individual need? If you need a full head, it would depend on the volume you want, as well as the thickness of the natural hair. On average, 150 to 200 strands would suffice for a full head while 100 to 125 strands would fit perfectly for a half-head.
