Keratin bonded hair extensions are one of the original hair extension methods offered as a permanent hair extension and are particularly useful for growing out the hair, they are still a popular method amongst experienced hair extension professionals. The last decade has welcomed new innovations and developments and in recent years several methods of hair extensions have made an entrance into the market place. Each method offers their own uses, application methods and varied maintenance requirements. Some have proven to be popular and have become a staple method, where others have faded and vanished. To date, there are only a few hair extension methods that offer the finer detailed use that’s required for specialised applications. This is the reason keratin hair extensions remain popular especially as a partial application and are often combined with another hair extension method.
Keratin bonded hair extensions offer our specialist hair extensions technician an advantage, as most methods do not cater for shorter hair around the front hairline. Keratin bonded extensions provide a flexible, seamless result thanks to the undetectable point of application.
Keratin bonded hair extensions still hold their place in the vast world of hair extensions and remain relevant today. Keratin hair extensions require an experienced and skilled technician as this is a highly specialised method.
For the past 20 years, Lushalox have trained many hair stylists the art of keratin hair extensions. With more than two decades of experience in training and education, we continue to work closely with industry professionals all over Australia wishing to learn the art of keratin hair extensions.
Keratin bonded hair extensions are individually hand crafted using the finest Italian keratin, which forms the most undetectable bond when fused with the natural hair. When expertly applied this is a favourable hair extension method for the right hair situation, that’s difficult to emulate with other methods. We use a premium brand of keratin bonded extensions that are made from organic 100% human remy hair. The bonded keratin extensions are fused in with your own natural hair according to the proportionate ratio with the natural hair strand – to give the hair an overall natural look and feel. The versatility of the keratin bonded extensions allows us to use this unique method in a variety of diverse and creative ways such as; filling in layers, growing out an unwanted haircut, extending or creating a fringe or redesigning your hairstyle by adding length or volume. Keratin bonded extensions are often combined with other methods of hair extensions due to their versatility and discreet application. We have years of experience which is combined with expert application techniques using a gentle and extremely natural extension method to blend the hair. This is a great solution for those wanting relatively low maintenance hair extensions and are the perfect solution for most hair types.
Is maintenance required?
Simple daily maintenance is required for your keratin bonded extensions. A few simple rituals such as daily gentle brushing and running your fingers through your hair at the bond area will prevent the hair from winding around each other, this is especially important as the extensions grow down away from the scalp. We recommend you use the recommended hair care products for the entire duration of wear as they have been specially formulated to keep the keratin bonds firm and in optimal condition. Products that contain parabens, sulphates, silicone, alcohol and other ingredients often act as a solvent, greatly reducing the lifespan of the keratin fused bonds and causing them to deteriorate and break down. We have formulated a specific hair care range that will protect the bonds and optimise the condition of keratin bonded extensions to help realise the full lifespan of the extensions while keeping your natural hair in top condition.
How long will my keratin hair extensions last?
Keratin fusion extensions with proper care will last 3 months with no refitting required. Keratin hair extensions are bonded to the natural hair strands which should be professionally removed after 3 months. A check up at the six week point is recommended and after three months it’s recommended that the extensions are removed by a professional hair extension technician and replaced with new extensions if required. It’s not recommended that any hair extensions (no matter which method used ) remain in place for more than 3 months at one time.
Can I have my hair coloured while I’m wearing keratin bonded hair extensions?
You may have your hair coloured with the keratin bonds attached, however this should be performed by a professional hair colourist. The hair colour should not be applied directly to the bonds as colouring over the bonds will soften them and reduce the lifespan of the extensions.

How many keratin bonded hair extensions will I need?
Between 25 – 50 extensions are required for adding a little colour or volume, and between 100 – 150 is generally the amount you will need for a full head of extensions (depending on the thickness of the natural hair). The thicker the natural hair the more extensions you’ll need, unless of course you’re just wanting to add a partial head for colour or filling in layers.
