Keratin vs. I-Tip: What are the Differences?

Keratin vs. I-Tip: what are the differences? Here are some of the differences and benefits of these two lesser known hair extension methods.


Comparable to other Laced Hair strand-by-strand methods, for both Keratin and I-Tip, stylists match natural hair density to extension strand allowing for the small bonds to be undetectable as the hair falls naturally. One benefit of both hair extension methods is instead of a touch up/move up every 4-6 weeks as it is with wefts and tape-ins, it is only 3 to 5 months for Keratin and I-Tip. However, unlike the machine sewn wefts, hand tied wefts and clip-ins, you will have to purchase more than one bag if you are looking to do your whole head.


When applying Keratin Bond Extensions, you must use a Keratin Heat tool to adhere Keratin Bond Extensions to the natural hair. New hair is recommended per application/move-up. In each bag of Laced Keratin extensions, there are 20 pieces.


Instead of using heat to apply like Keratin, I-Tip Extensions are attached with a slip-free Laced bead without the use of heat, glue, or other chemicals. Laced Hair offers both silicone and micro link beads. Another difference from Keratin Bond would be that you can reuse I-Tip extension hair. Each bag of Laced I-Tip Extensions come with 20 pieces.
