Human hair extensions are real hair extensions which add fullness and length to one’s hair. Hair extensions are ways of lengthening a person’s hair by incorporating extensions into hair.
There are several types of human hair extensions such as the machine wefted extension. Wefted hair extensions are extensions that have been sewn in order to create a bundle of extensions. Loose hair is put through a special type of sewing machine in order to add a reinforced stitch near the top of the individual strands of hair. Then, the hair is folded over and stitched again to create the final extension hair.
Bulk hair extensions are bundles of hair that has no welt. Bulk hair extensions are for those who want to use loose hair so that they can create their own weft hair extensions or to braid their hair.
Fusion hair extensions Fusion hair extensions are looked upon as permanent because they last a long time. These extensions are often removed and reinstalled every two to three months. To be clear, there are two types of fusion hair extensions. The first uses v-tip, nail tip or flat tips to bond the strand to a person’s hair and accomplishes this feat without using any links, tubes, rings or clips.
The second is a shrinkable tubing technique which uses i-tip fusion extensions and a heat-sensitive tube. Another type is the clip-in hair extensions. Clip-in extensions are versatile and are quick and easy to use. There are some tips that help before you purchase hair extensions such as matching the color and texture of the hair extension to your natural hair. Avoid hair that looks too shiny and always touch the hair before you buy. If the hair feels dry, it will tangle easily; so look for another extension.
Of course, good extensions should be totally undetectable. They should blend in with your natural hair. This can be accomplished with a great cut. Once the extensions are in, your hair should be cut dry, so that layers of hair blend into the two hair types. Some may not know it but you can color extensions darker but it is better to choose a shade that is close to your natural color.
Most importantly, hair extensions should be taken care of as you would your natural hair. It is important to not tug or yank at extensions when you brush your hair. Instead of yanking, hold the hair at the roots and detangle, beginning at the ends. Using your favorite hair products are fine but keep oils away from the roots so that the tape or bond does not slip.
In order to avoid stress on the roots of your hair, be sure to match hair density. For example, if you have fine hair, the hair extensions should be light in density. Those who have thicker hair should seek hair that has medium density.
To conclude, real hair extensions offer many benefits besides looking great such as: improving the texture of hair, adding volume, length, and fullness to your hair; as well as adding shine and life to your hair.
