Durability with the comfort of a lightweight extension that doesn’t pull. Plus they are practically invisible
Shrinkies (or shrink tubes) are very tiny tubes that shrink when heat is applied, squeezing your natural hair and the extension together. With shrinkies, you cannot feel the extension at all, they are very light and almost entirely invisible. And they will last up to 3-4 months.
Shrinky hair extensions are applied using is a strand-by-strand hair technique. You basically section off the hair and thread each shrink-link (or shrink-tube) into your natural hair. A pre-bonded / keratin-fused strand of extension hair is placed inside the tube. Using a special heat clamp, the keratin fuses the extension and natural hair creating a bond, and the tube shrinks to protect the bond.
