As the beauty industry welcomed the introduction of hair extensions during the early 1980’s, Valentin decided to steer clear of the low quality early additions had, desiring to provide his customer’s with hair that was not only stunning, but also helped to look after their natural tresses.
Following the introduction of low quality hair additions, Valentin’s Fusion hair extensions were born. Expertly designed using his wealth of hair knowledge and desire to produce only the highest quality additions, Fusion hair extensions were handmade using thin strips of natural tresses that exuded a fluffiness when applied, to help create an even weight and form. However, although he was successful in creating extensions that were exceptional in quality and appearance, Valentin had not yet been able to find a chemical product which would not only offer a strong bond when attaching Fusion hair extensions, but one which would also not damage the natural hair in anyway.
As we approached the new millennium and new advances were made within the beauty industry, new products which were aimed towards protecting our hair were introduced. Using these new discoveries, Rodolfo Valentin was able to create a new version of the Fusion hair extensions which implemented a thinner base with roots inserted into the support. This new design created a completely flat result which when combined with a new, protein rich solution, allowed for the extensions to be bonded with the natural hair with far better results than the original Fusion hair extensions. Following this new discovery, Valentin renamed this technique Hair Infusion Extensions.
As a result of the success of Valentin’s Infusion additions, many other salons realized the benefits which stemmed from this new technique, opting to advertise themselves as a ‘Hair Infusion Extension Salon’. Hair Infusion Extensions and Fusion Hair Extensions are exclusive trademarks of Rodolfo Valentin and are only available at Rodolfo Valentin salons in New York City and Long Island, NY. Although some salons may opt to state that they provide Hair Infusions, the proof that they do not will be evident in the quality you are provided with. Recognized by the medical industry as the safest form of hair additions, Hair Infusion Extensions help to protect the natural locks by eliminating the need for severe, damaging methods of hair extension attachment. Attachment methods such as hot glue can, in time, cause the tresses to become weak, causing it to break and fall out over time which can cause induced hair loss in some wearers. Where Hair Infusion Extensions differ is that they do not require heat or any other damaging solution to be attached to natural mane. As the extensions are made with a flat, even surface, each extension can be attached in a way which eliminates the natural hair from being pulled. The protein rich solution used to attach Hair Infusion Extensions to the wearer’s natural hair means that the extensions are not only reusable, but as the solution is applied to the extensions before they are applied, the natural hair is able to grow with the extension, helping it remain strong and healthy. Due to this, Hair Infusion Extensions are not only perfect for adding length and volume to hair, but are also perfect for those suffering from thinning hair or hair loss.
Hair extensions are a great way in which to refresh our look and help ourselves to look different but unless we opt to use only the best possible extensions, this could come at a cost. Hair Infusion Extensions not only allow us to leave the salon with a brand new look, but also help our hair grow to be strong, healthy and glossy underneath our extensions. As new forms of hair extensions reach the market everyday, none will come close the quality and protection offered with Rodolfo Valentin’s hair extensions, helping him to cement Hair Infusion Extensions as the hair extensions to use today and for years to come.
