A Guide to Buying Hair Extensions
Hair extensions are used to give body and length to natural hair. Extensions come in many hair types and colours. High-quality hair extensions can be reused if they have been taken care of properly. Generally, the application will last from two to six months; it just depends on the rate of the hair growth.
Strand by Strand Method
This particular hair extension application method is used in salons. The hair is applied to single strands of tiny sections or natural hair. This process takes longer than other methods, but the result is very natural looking hair. One or more technicians may be need to install the extensions. Several bonding methods can be used with this technique including heat bonding, metal clamps, and glue.
This type of extension is a track or strip woven together at the top. The strands are sewn or woven into the natural hair by a hair stylist.
Clip In Extensions
Clip-ins are the most straightforward extensions to use and are great for beginners. You can apply them at home and can purchase high-quality ones from Remy Russian hair extensions supplier. Clip in hair extensions come in low and high quality — it all depends on the manufacturer. They also come in a range of colours from natural to bold.
When you’re trying to decide which hair extension method to choose, you need to know what kind of bond is used. Some extension methods use very strong glues which can be harmful to your natural hair. Heat bonding is also harmful when it reaches high temperatures. Most reputable salons will use cold fusion or low heat bonding to prevent damage to the natural hair. Weave in and clamp extensions will only cause damage if too much force is applied. However, a well-trained hair stylist will apply the hair in a manner that does not cause any stress to the hair or scalp. Extensions that you’ve had applied by a specialist should also be removed by them to prevent pulling out, breaking or causing other damage to your natural hair.
Hair extensions can be styled the same as the hair they are applied to. Flat ironing, curling or blow drying will not usually cause harm to the bonds. You should take special care when using heat styling tools and not go too close to the scalp — if you apply heat to close to the scalp, you can cause injury to the skin and cause damage to metal or glue tube bonds if held in place for too long.
