The U-TIP Hair Extension is a type of hair extension that is applied to the hair by heating up the keratin tip that is found at the end of the extension, to attach it to your natural hair. Using keratin as a form of hair extension application has been around for many years. This is a very popular method of fitting. The terms U-TIP, NAIL-TIP, Pre Bonded Hair Extension are describe the same thing. Sometimes this is confusing. In regards to the term U-TIP and NAIL TIP, this does in fact refer to the same thing. This and is simply a way of describing the shape of the keratin at the end of each strand.

The keratin is shaped in a “u” or “nail” type shape to make it quick and easy to melt against the hair to form a tight sealed bond.  This type of fitting can sometimes also be referred to as “FLAT TIP” or “V TIP”, which again is the exact same type of fitting, yet as the names suggest is simply a different shaped tip.  The only exception to this rule from the terminology listed above is “pre bonded”.

Is The U-TIP Hair Extension Comfortable?

When fitted correctly. U-TIP or NAIL TIP should be very comfortable to wear. As with all hair extension methods, a settling period is usually required for the first few days whilst your scalp adjusts to the hair extensions. Which can result in tenderness and mild itching, however this should subside within a day or so. This is only likely to affect those with a sensitive scalp. You need to find a good Hair Extension Saloon and you you have to find a proper Hair Extension of course.

How can you apply and remove you U-TIP Hair Extension?

U-TIP and NAIL TIP Hair Extension are fitted using a heat connector to melt the keratin tip against small sections of natural hair. The melted keratin is then rolled around the natural hair tightly so that it forms a fully sealed bond. Keratin heats and cools very quickly, allowing for easy application. Depending on the type of keratin used, the bond will need to be broken down so that it can safely be removed from the client hair. When using an Italian keratin you will require an alcohol based, and when using a Chinese keratin you will require an acetone based solution.
