Hair Extensions: a Great Option to Add Length and Style

March 23rd, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

<div align=”justify”>Hair extensions were once only a popular option for many cultures other than the Caucasian race. Especially popular in the African American community, they can be purchased in large or small quantities, and in various colors, textures, and grades. In today’s society, celebrities are making hair extensions a popular choice for people of all cultures, races, and origins. There are many different kinds of hair extensions that you can buy, and you should be fully informed as to how to shop for them properly, as well as using them properly, before you invest any money in the process.

First and foremost, you need to know how to choose the hair extensions that will work best for your hair. You can find hair extensions salons that can help you with the entire process from start to finish, but if you’re looking to shop on your own, here are some tips to help. The color range varies, and covers the entire spectrum of natural hair colors and synthetic hair can even be purchased in more unnatural colors such as blue, green, orange, bright red, and yellow. If you’re buying naturally colored hair, the box will have a number on it, which denotes the color. Usually, 0 is the lowest number, which is black, and they go up from there. The exact number depends on the manufacturer, and it can vary from one to the next.

There are also many different textures of hair extensions to choose from, depending on the type of hair you have. You can get any style you want, from curly and wavy to straight, thin, Asian-style hair. Human hair has many fewer options for texture than synthetic hair, so you’ll need to keep that in mind when you’re choosing what kind of hair you want. Next up is the quality of the hair extensions that you buy. Virgin hair is known as hair that hasn’t been colored or processed in any manner. It is cut to maintain direction and can be sold in bulk or on pre-formed pieces and wigs. Remy hair is the other type of quality available. It refers to hair that is all human, and the hair is organized with all the roots at the same end. It’s much longer lasting and stays detangled longer on average than synthetic hair.

There are many different ways to integrate these pieces once you’ve purchased them. Whether using “track and sew” processes which stitch the extensions right into the natural hair, or bonded glue or clips to attach the extensions, you should research all options before you choose your method of integration. Unless you’ve been doing your own for an extended time, hair extensions salons will usually give you better results than doing your own. </div>
