What she said. ^^^^^
Quick question: Does this method hold up under heat? 
I love my old fashioned plug in hot curlers.
Ten minutes and my hair has nice loose curls.
Wondering if this bond is wax like, it might not be a go with heat.

Thanks for the very detailed review and comparison! I've always wanted to try fusion extensions, but have been leery of hair loss and thinning. I will do more research on it now, all hope is not lost lol.

Yes and no. 
Since I really no longer use heat on my hair, the few times I did my bonds were ok.  Like any fusion technique, you really can't place a curling iron or flat iron on the bond. I use a blow dryer on warm (not hot) to air dry my hair. I tug on my hair as it dries so that it will dry flatter. 

The last time I used hot curlers was for a wedding and I had no bond loss. But, and a very big BUT...I was careful not to roll any of the bonded areas on the rollers. I stopped just before I reached the scalp and used a clip to hold the roller in place. The trick is to let the curlers cool completely before taking them out. MM directions said if your skin can handle the heat, so can the bonds, so I took that at face value. 

The same goes for washing my hair. I wash in hot/warm water and it slightly softens the bonds, but I rinse in cool water to make the bonds hard again. After that, I am able to manipulate my hair (comb, brush, dry). A diluted ACV rinse works well too. 

That's what I do, but their website as a FAQs about using heat on the bonds. They may be able to explain it better than I did. LOL

I hope that was helpful.

I tried fusion back in 02 and didn't care for it. Then I went with invisible braids, still strand by strand, but with a small braid and knot attaching the extension hair. I LOVED them. No glue.

This sounds promising!

Thanks for sharing!
