Why Do Clients Love Kera-Link?

This month we’re paying our respects to Kera-Link extensions, one of our premier professional hair extension methods. As part of the feature, we wanted to take a special look at the qualities of the product that make it so well-loved. So without further ado, here are a couple of Kera-Link quirks that make people go ker-azy for them.

Traditional and well-regarded

Of all of our hair extension methods, Kera-Link (or the “fusion” method) has been around the longest. When people think of hair extensions, Kera-Link has the most long-standing reputation. It feels familiar, and is one of the most popular options to date.

Durable

Kera-Link/fusion extensions are supremely durable. While other hair extension methods can be just as durable as fusion (lasting, on average, 6-7 weeks before move-up), there is definitely something extra-comforting about the security of an extension fused directly with your hair. This is particularly true when you remember that keratin bonds–the protein tips that are melted under heat against the client’s hair–are made from the same kind of protein as the hair itself, making the extension look and feel basically indistinguishable from the client’s own hair.

Comfortable

One notable benefit of the Kera-Link method is that the bonds are unobtrusive and blend naturally with the client’s hair, so caring for the extensions can be a bit more comfortable than it is for other methods. Unless you’re using an appropriate, hair extension-friendly brush, you’ll find that most brushes snag on the extension bonds of other methods–risking breakage. With Kera-Link, this is less of a concern–though we still recommend that you use the Extension Brush for optimal effect!

Discrete

As we mentioned briefly in the second point above, Kera-Link bonds blend very seamlessly into the client’s natural hair, in part because the bond is composed of the same kind of protein as human hair. It’s also because the attachment point isn’t too bulky, and the keratin bond itself is pre-colored to the appropriate shade to match the client’s hair color. Furthermore, Kera-Link extensions can be customized into smaller units (by snipping the extension bond vertically in half), so that tiny pieces can be applied to tiny sections of the hair. This makes the extension bonds–which are already basically imperceptible when applied–all but totally invisible, and therefore particularly attractive to clients who rank this among their primary concerns.

Whether you’re a Kera-Link wearer, stylist, or none of the above, learning about the different methods that make up the world of hair extensions enables you to make more personalized choices. It also equips you with the information you need to talk about extensions with others–especially those who may still be on the extension fence. We invite you to read more of our method-related blog posts (linked below), for both Kera-Link and our other prominent methods. You may be surprised at what you learn!
