What Are Hand-Tied Semi-Permanent Extensions and How Do They Work

Hand-tied semi-permanent extensions are a technique where the hair is sewn onto one’s natural hair using a knotting method.

According to reports, the increase in the economy and growing disposable income mostly in developing countries such as Brazil, India, Argentina, and others are expected to fuel the growth of the hair extensions market.

Hand tied extensions require curling with a curling iron. However, it is most beneficial to use a professional flat iron after the hair is curled so that there are no kinks and curls. The client can retain her smooth, sleek look for extended periods without damaging or over-stressing the hair.

The following article will explain hand-tied extensions, how they work, and how to maintain them.

What are Hand-Tied Semi-Permanent Extensions?

Hand-tied extensions are another method that can be performed using semi-permanent extensions. The hair is sewn individually onto the natural hair and then flat ironed to secure them in place.

However, hand-tied extensions do not use heat or adhesives to blend natural hair, unlike fusion extensions. It means that the extensions are much more comfortable and will not cause any worry about heat damage or scalp burns.

They can be used for special occasions like weddings, proms, etc., or to add volume and length to one’s hair.

How Do They Work?

According to reports, hand-tied extensions are small, strand-by-strand, sewn-in extensions. It does not use any heat or adhesives to attach the extensions, making it an excellent choice for those who want a long-lasting, comfortable extension that is still undetectable.

These extensions can be applied in just a few hours and will last for several months, even with normal wear and tear like brushing and washing (though it is best to use a mild shampoo).

The hair is sewn onto your natural hair using the knotting technique. It means that once these extensions are applied, they will look exactly like your own hair – no one will be able to tell that these are extensions.

The hair is sewn by knotting the extension hair around your natural hair, ensuring that it is securely attached and will last for several months. You can style your hair as usual – wash, brush, dry – and these extensions will stay firmly in place.

These hair extensions require special care: do not bother them with heat styling tools, curling irons, etc. Also, wait for at least three months to let your scalp get used to the extensions before coloring or bleaching them.

How to Maintain Hand-Tied Extensions

Like all hair extensions, the hair must be adequately maintained to ensure that it looks good and lasts as long as possible. If you take care of them, these extensions will efficiently serve you for up to five months (which is around the average period).

Using a professional flat iron is most beneficial after the hair is curled without kinks and curls. The client can retain her smooth, sleek look for extended periods without damaging or over-stressing the hair.

After each shampoo, make sure to use a conditioner. However, wait until the hair is dehydrated when using styling tools such as straightening irons, curling irons, etc.

Washing and drying the hair several times a week is necessary. However, do not wash them too often (no more than twice or thrice a week) because it can cause the natural oil (sebum) production of your scalp to get disrupted due to over-washing.

Try not to use heating tools such as blow dryers, straightening irons, curling irons, etc., on the hair because it can damage or over-stress it.

Do not color or bleach your hair extensions for at least three months after applying them. Wait until your scalp gets used to them before you intensify their appearance with dying and bleaching.

When you dye them, use only gentle hair coloring products specially designed for hair extensions.

Another critical point is to avoid sleeping on your hair or any other style that will keep the hair in compression. It will prevent volume loss in your hair and keep them in good condition for more extended periods.

One of the common myths about extensions is that they cause a lot of hair damage. However, if you properly maintain them, you can use them for several months without worrying about hair loss or damage.

Final Thoughts

While the application process may seem long and complicated, it is not as difficult as it looks. If you follow these instructions carefully, you should be able to apply the extensions by yourself without involving an expert or professional stylist.
