Hair extensions are a great way to add extra length or volume to your hair. Some do both. There are many things to consider when you are thinking about getting hair extensions, but don’t let that dissuade you! Professionals can answer your questions and guide you. The route to getting the best results from your hair extensions is to schedule an appointment with your stylist and go over the different processes and types of extensions, as well as your expectations. Your stylist will help you choose the correct extensions to purchase and can assist you in even ordering your extensions from the salon.
Prices for extensions depend on what extensions you want. Extensions made from human hair are going to cost more than synthetic extensions. The length, thickness, and weight of the extensions can also add or reduce the expense. Discuss prices and expenses with your stylist during your consultation to get accurate information.
Hair extensions can be woven into hair, glued into your natural hair, or braided in. There are different opinions on which process is the best, so make sure you ask lots of questions during your consultation with your stylist. Think about asking about the quality of the extensions you want, how permanent you would like them to be, and how difficult they are to take care of, as well as what it is like to have them removed. They can help you decide which process is best for your hair and what will help you get the results you are looking for.
It is important to also discuss weights of extensions with your stylist. Choosing extensions that are too heavy can damage your natural hair. If your hair is not thick enough or long enough already to support the weight, you will see damage and hair breakage, as well as your extensions losing their staying power.
After you have your extensions, it is important to take care of them properly to help them last and stay looking nice. Make sure that you fully understand what it takes to wash, condition (if you are supposed to or not), and style your extensions. Extensions made entirely from human hair tend to be the best and easiest to take care of because you can treat them just like your own hair. Be careful if you choose to go with synthetic extensions because they are not all heat resistant and can be damaged by styling.
