When you want to add more volume and length to your hair without waiting for a long time, hair extensions are your solution. The thing to note here is that mistakes can happen. And they may cost you anywhere around $50 up to $100 and even more, depending on the weight, length, and hair type. Think about these three considerations first before you decide to buy:
Synthetic vs. Human Hair vs. Remy Hair
Synthetic hair is, of course, way much cheaper than the 100% real human hair. But once you wear the first, you’ll know that it will hardly blend with your hair, especially if you have coily hair type. Synthetic won’t achieve anywhere near that appearance. Besides, it will usually shed and tangle quickly. If you want to wear the extensions in a professional environment, then the human hair is your only option.
Moreover, you must know that there is Remy human hair, which is the highest quality extension you can get out there. It comes from one donor so that all the strands go in one direction, a feature that you can’t get from non-Remy hair.
The Maintenance Time
If you get a hair extension, it does save you the time from waiting for your natural hair growth. But at the same time, you need to wake up at least 5 to 10 minutes earlier every morning to care for your extension hair. If you do not like that idea, then a clip-on extension will be your best decision because you can unclip it every time you go to sleep, exercise at the gym, or swimming. If you are careful enough, a natural clip-on extension can last up to a year before it will start to wear out.
The semi-permanent extension will give you a more natural look since it is attached to your real hair. However, you need to wash your hair and apply some conditioners at least twice or three times a week. You also need to detangle your extension each time before you go to sleep and every morning after you wake up.
Hair Texture Variants
When we say ‘natural’ here, we do not mean that your choices are limited. In fact, the most significant benefit of having hair extensions is the range of possibilities to have with the textures. Browse these types on your phone: silky straight, yaki, coarse straight, deep wave, curly wave, romance wave, kinky curly, and wet and wavy. See which textures are the closest to yours, and they will be your choices when you want to have an extension.
