Ever thought those long locks that your favorite actress flaunts could be a lie? Well, it could be to some extent because hair extensions are the thing now that in a way give you a better hair style than your natural hair.
Here’s some important information about hair extensions that is worth a look –
Hair extensions are also known as hair integrations. They are used to add to the length and volume of one’s hair. They can be made of natural or synthetic hair. Virgin natural hair extensions are the best quality (and the most expensive, of course) as the cuticle of the natural hair is preserved and all the hair runs in one direction, giving it the most natural look. If you are tight on your budget, synthetic hair extensions are a cheaper option. Even though extensions are not a great choice for heating treatments, they can be the best solution for already made hair styles.
However, selection of the right weft or hair extension needs a lot of attention and care because choosing a wrong one would only mean extreme wastage of money and time; plus, you will never be able to use a wrong extension (unless of course you’re up for looking like an alien).
Here are the three very important rules that need to be remembered when choosing hair extensions:
1. Consider your Lifestyle: Rule number 1 that must always be on your list is choosing an extension based on the kind of lifestyle that you’re leading. It’s mere foolishness to choose an extension only because you like it and not considering how it would suit your everyday needs. You can choose pin-in extensions because using them is the easiest. Next, you can use tape extensions – these are held in place with strong, invisible bi-adhesive premium tape that’s undetectable to the touch; they last for up to eight weeks.
2. Get the Color Match: Next very important point that needs all your attention is color selection and matching it with the color of your natural hair. Being off even by a shade is a dead giveaway that you’re wearing faux hair. The most accurate way is to color match with the ends of your locks, not the roots, and go with the color that’s the most prominent in your natural hair.
3. Check on Quality: Synthetic extensions are the most affordable, but they tangle easily and have a super high shine, which makes them look obviously unnatural. Remy extensions are the highest quality. They’re the closest to your real hair, so they’ll hold styles and texture the same way and won’t shed as much as the cheaper options. For clip-ins, look for a silicone cushion on the clips to prevent tangles and breakage.
Following these three very simple and important rules before finalizing the extension will help you in picking the one that is best for all your needs and is an absolute steal for your money.
