Hair Extensions: Where To Start?

Article by suzlar

Hair extensions are a very popular way of artificially lengthening and thickening hair, but with so many different techniques on the market, where do you start? Well, the first thing to ascertain is why you want hair extensions in the first place. Is it to add length or thickness to your hair, or even both? Or maybe you want to add some colour to your hair with hair extensions? Whatever your chosen outcome, this will affect which method you opt for and the quality of hair you choose.

Each stylist will use a different system to the next and they are bound to tell you that their chosen system is the best, so how do you know which one is best and why? The truth is that most methods can work well when used on the right hair type and when the client is after a specific result. However, if a method is used on the wrong type of hair or done in an incorrect way, then it can be very difficult to achieve the desired look and can actually cause serious damage to the natural hair.

Therefore, in order to get the results you want and not damage your hair, you need to choose the right method for you. The first decision to be made is to what sort of hair you want. The two main categories are human or synthetic hair. As you can imagine, human hair looks more natural than synthetic hair but there are advantages and disadvantages of both types. It is important to do your research before going ahead with hair extensions so you are aware of both the pros and cons.

When it comes to natural hair it is always more expensive than synthetic hair but it looks the best. Within the category of natural hair there are many different types of hair that vary in price depending on quality. The best thing about natural hair is that is looks and can be treated exactly like your own. However, it does need extra care to make sure that it does not get matted together and requires regular conditioning treatments to ensure it stays in good condition, the same as any long hair would do. On the whole, human hair is the most durable, flexible and often reusable method of extensions, but it is also the most expensive.

Synthetic hair is much cheaper but despite the low price tag, it does have its disadvantages. The main con is that the hair may never be a perfect match to your own as the hair is man-made. However, if you are looking for an inexpensive way to change your look for a special occasion then synthetic extensions may be the way forward for you. The hair can mat quite easily and it can become frizzy very easily. Synthetic hair is not recommended for those looking for a full head of permanent extensions, instead is better for those looking for a temporary quick fix.

Hair extensions are a great way to change up your look and look great when done correctly. Many members of the public and celebrities alike are opting for hair extensions as a way of enhancing their look and enjoying a new style.
