Hair extensions offer an immediate boost to your natural hairdo. Achieving the ideal length or volume of hair takes time and lots of effort, while advanced extension technology can produce a desired look within the hour. Choosing the right type of hair extension can offer stunning results that will make you the talk of the town.
Extensions may be temporary or permanent, depending on an individual’s preference. There are various types of extensions available, such as clip-ins, sew-ins, and micro links, which vary in pricing and durability. Hair extensions come in synthetic materials (fine plastic fibers that mimic human hair) or authentic human hair, which is pricier but offers a more realistic appearance by blending in with your natural hair.
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Clip-in extensions are affordable temporary options recommended for active individuals or those seeking an occasional spruce-up to their hairdo. Users can easily clip the hair wefts near their hair roots (like a regular hair clip), keeping them firmly in place. You can easily style the extensions into braids, ponytails, and buns without a long-term commitment. With enough practice, you can achieve the process without a mirror.
Individuals looking for a permanent solution may consider tape-in extensions. These extensions are possibly the most requested choice in salons around the world. The seamless process involves adding inch-wide hair wefts between natural hair and taped in with adhesives. You can look forward to fuller and healthier-looking hair for six to eight weeks with minimal fuss with tape-in extensions.
Micro Link Extensions
Also known as micro ring or micro bead hair extensions, these permanent solutions involve a non-glue technique that binds natural hair with extension strands through tiny metal tubes. Micro link hair extensions are costly but lasting (usually between three to five months with proper care and treatment) and offer the most natural-looking enhancement to your hairstyle.
It is essential to visit a specialized hairstylist regularly in the maintenance of permanent Hair extensions. Trained professionals can help remove, clean, and reposition your hair extensions to maintain a flawless look for all seasons. Additionally, handle hair extensions gently at all times when washing to retain maximum quality and opt for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners that go easy on the adhesives (and not dry them out).
