Remy Flat Tip (I-Tip) Hair Extensions Information
Real Human Hair Remy Flat Tip (I-Tip) Hair Extensions (100 Strands), Body Weave, Curly and Straight
As the name says, this extension type has a flat tip that differentiates them from others. This is better because the extension tip lays completely flat on your head, and it can be camouflaged much more easily and feels so comfortable. And having extensions that are as comfortable as possible is incredibly important because you don’t want anything in the way of a perfect experience. The flat tips are secured using the hot fusion method, one of the most advanced. It is becoming increasingly popular because it allows a completely natural movement, a realistic look, and increased longevity. If you’re tired of clip-in extensions that you have to reapply every day, then you should really think about flat tips.

Flat Tip Hair Extensions Features
Two main features of these extensions are the flat tip and the hot glue fusion application method. The flat tip ensures the extensions don’t stick near the roots and lay flat on your head. That’s very important because nobody wants their extensions showing. The hot fusion method is amazing because you get so much freedom of movement, which means you have infinite styling options. The extensions will not be visible if you want to make a cool updo or a high ponytail. The flat tips, along with the incredibly strong glue that melts, are so comfortable to wear. That is crucial because flat tips are a semi-permanent method. That means you don’t have to reapply them daily like other extension types. If you’re a busy girl, this will positively impact your free time. Once you install the flat tips, you can wear them for up to two months, depending on your hair growth. It’s really simple!
Another reason why glue-in extensions are trendy is that they use the hot fusion method. That means the glue and heat are involved during the application process. It is a complete revolution regarding extensions, so more and more girls are choosing this method. Your natural strands, along with the flat tips, are placed on strands and then clamped shut using glue melting pliers. It’s as simple as that! That makes the cold fusion method so durable and secure. There is almost no chance the flat tips will slip out or get damaged. Maintaining flat tip extensions is also a lot easier compared to others.
The hot fusion extension method is also recommended for girls with very thin strands. It will not strain your locks and camouflages well, even with low-density hair. A couple of other amazing benefits of flat tip extensions are:
1. Once you touch our flat-tip extensions, you will always want to touch them. Their silky and soft texture will win you over!

Why Buy Flat Tip Hair Extensions?
If you are considering buying flat-tip hair extensions, gathering all the information about this type of attachment is important so there are no surprises afterward. If you still can’t decide, we have compiled a list of the pros and cons of flat-tip hair extensions.
The Pros of Flat Tip Hair Extensions
Let's take a look at the pros first. Let’s first explore the flat tip pros so you can see how great this method is.
Cheap Remy Options Available
Flat tips come in many forms, and the main distinction is between hair types. You can get human hair flat tips, including Remy's hair. Because of their low quality and unrealistic look, synthetic extensions are rarely used anymore. Human hair extensions have gotten cheap and are affordable to almost everyone, so there is no reason to use synthetic strands.
Adding Length and Density Is Easy
Adding 20 inches of length to your locks might have seemed impossible twenty or thirty years ago, but it is a simple task nowadays. Flat tips come in different lengths, so it’s up to you how much you want to extend your locks. Density is also a key factor in creating a stunning hairstyle. Those with naturally thin and fine strands know how hard it is to style them and make them look fuller. When you add flat-tip strands, you get an amazing amount of sheer volume that is instantly noticeable.
Increase in Styling Options
Once you get that desired density and luscious long tresses, you suddenly realize you’re no longer stuck with the same boring styles for thin or short hair. Now you’re one of the cool girls with beautiful full locks and have so many different hairstyles to choose from. When you have short hair, you can forget about braids, ponytails, glamorous updos, waves, or simply letting your strands flow as the wind blows through them. Long hair allows you to try anything, so you don’t have to be frustrated when watching those amazing YouTube hair tutorials. Flat tips allow you to be that girl.
Rather Easy to Install
Although flat tips are certainly not the easiest extensions to install, the process is still simple and can be done at home with some help from your friend. This way, you save much money that would otherwise be spent at a salon.
Very Secure if Handled Correctly
Because of the installation method, there is almost no chance of the flat tips falling off once the flat tips are applied. The bond is powerful and holds the strands together tightly. So, if you maintain and care for the flat tips, you don’t have to worry about them coming off, and enjoy your new strands.
Incredibly Comfortable to Wear
Flat tips come in individual strands, which, when applied, are much more comfortable to wear than big wefts. They become so integrated with actual strands that you can barely feel them after a while. If the extensions are uncomfortable or have any strain or pain, the flat tips were probably installed too close to the scalp. If that’s the case, remove them and reapply.
Many women love using flat tips because they’re semi-permanent, unlike clip-in. The semi-permanent nature of these extensions is particularly appealing to busy women who don’t have time to install and remove wefts every single day.
Can Be Reused
Although the flat tips must be removed and reinstalled every two to four weeks, you can still use the same hair multiple times. That’s a big plus because buying new extensions every month would be very expensive. If you want something easier to install on your own, consider invisible tape extensions.
It might seem like flat tips are a lot of work, but that’s not true. This type of extension is pretty low maintenance. You can treat them pretty much like your own tresses. Don’t pull or tug on them; you should be fine. It is enough to wash them twice daily and brush them to remove any tangles or frizz.
Since flat tips have a unique flat shape, it is almost impossible to detect them. They lay completely flat against the head and are very tiny. So if those are looking for a truly invisible extension method, consider flat tips.
The Cons of Flat Tip Hair Extensions
We don’t want to praise flat tip extensions without mentioning some of the less positive aspects; here are some of their cons.
More Suitable for Advanced Users
Although anybody can learn to install flat tip extensions, more advanced users will find it much easier. Once the flat tips are applied to the strands, removing them is difficult, so applying them correctly the first time is crucial. Those not so confident in their skills are better off going to a salon and having it done professionally.
Need to Be Refitted
Currently, there are no extension methods that you can install and never have to take off again. Be it hair wefts, tape-ins or keratin hair. Flat tips are no exception, and although they’re considered a more permanent extension method, they still need to be occasionally refitted. When the flat tips are applied to the natural strands, they move along as they grow. The more the strands grow, the more flat tips become visible because they’re pushed down. That’s why they need to be refitted every four to eight weeks, depending on the speed of hair growth.
Can Come Off
Although this happens very rarely, sometimes the flat tips can come off. This usually happens when people don’t follow the maintenance instructions and somehow damage the tips. For example, aggressive scrubbing around the scalp area might result in the tips getting loose and eventually falling off. So be careful when washing the extensions and scrub gently. Another way to damage the flat tips is by aggressive brushing or pulling. Any strong force applied to the tips might result in detachment.
How to Install Flat Tip Hair Extensions?
Flat tips are easy to install; you can try them yourself. If this is your first time, you can ask a friend to give you a hand. Here’s the process:
1. Start by parting your hair. The flat tips will be in horizontal rows, starting from the bottom and going up, so that’s how you should part your hair. Begin with the first section at the nape of your neck and move upwards.
2. Now that you have your horizontal parting, separate a tiny section of hair that will touch the tip. If the strand is too big because it will not cover the entire information.
3. Now is the time to insert the flat tip. Place it underneath your natural strand and hold them together with your fingers.
5. Check if the tip placement is right because it shouldn’t be too close to the roots. If it is, move everything down slightly.
6. Use the hot pliers to melt and close the glue properly.
7. Repeat these steps on other strands, going up one row each time. Don’t place the tips too close to the top part of your strands so that you avoid visibility.
Contact your hair professional if you need more help or don’t want to do it yourself.
