Hair extensions can be defined as an artificial hair integration where an additional human or artificial hair is attached to give more length and volume. It may also be called hair weaves. The synthetic or real hair is attached to the scalp to give a drastic change to their hair without looking unrealistic. For best results, the hair extension should match the colour and texture of the person’s hair having the extension. Whether it’s synthetic or real, hair weaves can last a long time and remain in good condition if cared for properly.
Hair extensions come in many types and methods vary. Pre-boned, clip in, weave, heat fusion, hot fusion, cold fusion, flat fusion, skin weft hair, micro-bead, micro link, invisible, hairlocs, pinch braids, braid-less, sew-in, tape in, Brazilian knots, microchet and shrinkies.
In choosing a type of hair extension, make sure you choose the one that is suitable for your hair and lifestyle. Always remember that it is in how you care and maintain them that will make your extension last long and look good on you.
