Create Instantly Beautiful Long Hairstyles with Hair Extensions
is widely believed that the state of our health can be reflected in the
condition of our hair. So, in the event that we sport long, silky hair that
radiates health, we will come across as an individual that is beautiful,
radiant and youthful.
Hair extensions are becoming an increasingly popular way in which to instantly gain the long, beautiful hair we’ve always dreamed of. As many women are only too aware of, growing our hair into a long style can take years as our hair naturally grows at an average of just 1 cm a month. However, by investing in hair extensions, you can give you around 21 inches of length, volume and thickness in just a few hours!
On the market today, there are two main types of hair extensions that ca be utilised. Hair extensions can be manufactured from synthetic fibres, often referred to as synthetic hair extensions or from human hair, referred to as human hair extensions. Human hair extensions are the most preferred type of hair extensions predominately due to looking and feeling more real and natural compared to synthetic extensions. In addition, natural hair extensions provide the wearer with more versatility in terms of styling as heat cannot be applied to most synthetic extensions, which makes them the wrong choice for a long term investment. As one would expect, natural hair extensions cost a lot more than the synthetic brands, but with these prices you are getting fantastic quality and wear. If you are looking to change your hair for a one-off event, then synthetic extensions will be a more sensible solution. An important point of real hair extensions to remember is that there will be no fixed price as the brand you choose, the salon you have the extensions applied at and the amount of extensions you have will all affect the overall cost. However, note that hair extensions that are untreated and uncoloured can often cost more as they possess added durability.
For many women, a change in hairstyle can help make them look more sophisticated, younger or can simply help their confidence to soar. Hair weaves are a good investment for those who like the appearance of braids, dreadlocks or simply desire to have a fuller head of hair and a different image. Hair weaves are another variation of hair extensions and are found in synthetic and real hair forms. The three different types of hair weaves include:
(1)Bonded Hair Weave: This is the least durable form of hair weave, lasting just 1 month before replacement is required. This form of hair weave is glued to the scalp and so must be applied by an experienced stylist.
(2)Braided Hair Weave: The braided hair weave is a 2-step procedure, during which the natural hair is braided along the centre of the scalp (under the hair). Next, the hair weave is sown into the braids. This type of hair weave typically lasts around 8 weeks.
(3)Fusion Hair Weave: This is the most lasting and therefore cost effective kind of hair weave as it can last up to 3 months with proper care. This procedure involves waxing the hair weave to the natural hair.
Both hair extensions and hair weaves require will considerable maintenance in order to keep them looking great and cost-effective. Both your natural hair and your extensions will need to be treated gently and cleaned with moisturising shampoos and conditioners in order to keep the hair supple and eliminate breakage. While your natural hair will gain vital oils and moisture from your scalp, hair extensions and hair weaves will not as they are not connected directly to the root of the hair, making them susceptible to drying out. Furthermore, depending on the style and procedure used for your hair extensions/hair weaves, you may be required to visit the hairdresser every 6 weeks to maintain your hair extensions as your natural hair grows.
No matter what kind of hair extension you choose, it is imperative that you always consult with a hair extension specialist for advice, and pick the safest procedure for your hair.
