Hair Extensions Which Are the Best For Your Hair?
Hair extensions are an effective way to add length, volume and a splash of colour to your locks. But it’s essential that you choose the appropriate one for you and your locks.
Your selection of hair extensions depends on factors like style, budget and post-care requirements. To assist in making an informed decision we have compiled a list of top types.
Synthetic hair extensions are made of acrylic, nylon or polyester fibres designed to replicate the look and feel of natural hair extensions. Available as clip-ins (long lengths, bangs and ponytails), sew-ins or tape-ins in various densities, lengths and colors – synthetic extensions make an ideal way to extend the lengths and textures of natural locks!
Blended extensions blend seamlessly with natural strands and can add volume to shorter hair, but may be harder to style and can’t withstand heat styling — applying heat may cause them to melt or burn off completely.
Marjan suggests using a lightweight, moisturizing deep conditioner to keep synthetic strands looking shiny and healthy. You could also smooth a dime-sized amount of Monoi Oil Sacred Strengthening Serum through your locks for added radiance.
Human hair extensions offer durable and heat styling versatility. When purchasing human extensions, look for virgin Remi (remy hair) as it will blend in more seamlessly with your natural strands without tangling as much.
Be mindful when styling human hair extensions using heat to avoid damage. Marjan suggests using a heat protectant and only using it once or twice every week at most; additionally, always apply moisturizing deep conditioner after every wash to keep extensions looking their best.
Choose from various bonding methods – clip-in, tape-in, sew-in and halo extensions – to find the ideal option for your hair texture and lifestyle. Consider how often and for how long they’ll be worn as well as their cost and upkeep requirements when making your decision.
Purchase braided hair extensions is one of the best ways to add gorgeousness and attraction to your hair, but finding suitable extensions is key for creating stunning results. They should blend in well with your natural locks, be easy and comfortable to wear, not itch or shed and shouldn’t cause itchy discomfort when worn for prolonged periods of time.
