Microrings

Shannel uses silicone lined microrings (aka nanorings) to avoid the metallic ring edge coming into contact with your natural hair and to reduce the risk of slippage.  This application is perfect for women wanting to avoid adhesives and heat during application.  Microrings are very easy to apply to your natural hair.  Extension hair is gently placed within the ring which is then looped through your natural hair and pressed shut.  To remove the rings they are pressed open which releases your natural and the extension hair from it’s fixed position.  At this point the ring can be moved up into it’s original position allowing you to reuse you extension hair many times.

Microrings Pros & Cons

PROS: Microrongs do not require the addition of heat or glue to create an attachment.  Whilst wearing Microrings a full take down is not necessary.  As the extensions grow out the Microrings can be moved up during routine maintenance appointments.

CONS: Microrings can lose their colour over time exposing the metal underneath.  You will need to make time for monthly maintenance appointments.  Not suitable for fine or breaking hair.  

FINAL VERDICT: Microrings are a very popular strand-by-strand hair extension attachment method.  This type of attachment method is great for women who would prefer a heat free attachment method.
