Hair extensions are a beautiful way to compliment your hair and give yourself
a new hair style all in one.Hair extensions can be divided into two main categories,
100% human hair or synthetic hair.
Your stylist should discuss the various types of hair that can be used
and recommend the most appropriate for your lifestyle. They should also talk
to you about the different attachment methods.
Each type has advantages and disadvantages, and techniques for survival.
Of course, synthetic hair, made in a laboratory and natural hair extensions
are grown and cut from real people.
Human hair extensions have the advantage of being more realistic,
but they are more expensive.
Strand-by-Strand Extensions are good for those with fine or thinning hair.
It is human hair secured at the top with a keratin protein polymer cap.
Each cap is bonded to your own hair, near your scalp, with a tonglike tool.
This type of hair extension lasts up to four months.
Clip-In Hair Extensions: are good for those who want longer
or thicker hair temporarily. Clip-in extensions range from a one-inch piece
with one clip to a weft that runs from ear to ear with three to five clips.
They're made with human or synthetic hair and come wavy or straight
and in a wide range of shades. Clip them underneath the top layer of your hair
to conceal the attachment. Quality extensions can be reused forever.
Partial Weave are best for those who want to add volume or length
to their current style and has textured hair. A stylist makes several small,
tight braids along your scalp, then uses a curved needle and cotton, nylon,
or silk thread to secure a weft (a line of extensions that are machine-stitched
at the top, like a curtain of hair) to the braid.
A full weave is a solution for someone who wants to completely change
her texture or color. All your hair is pulled into braids before the wefts
are sewn on.
Every four weeks, your stylist tightens the braids and the weave;
every three months, she will remove the wefts, wash and condition them,
then reattach them. The hair should last up to a year.
