Different Kinds Of Hair Extensions

If you’re considering investing in some hair extensions you might think it’s a straight forward choice but there are actually loads to choose from. The different options are:

Clip in hair extensions

They are easy to use and are not permanent; this is the cheapest way to have longer hair. Once you have bought them, as long as you look after them, they could last you years. You can put them in and take them out as you please. The hair is sewn onto a clip which can then be clipped onto your hair and they last from around six months to two years depending on how often you use them.

Brazilian Hair Extensions

The hair of a Brazilian is supposed to be the most sought after hair in the world. It is very versatile and is very good quality but is one of the most expensive of the real human hair extensions. These hair extensions can be purchased straight or curly and they’re ideal for colouring. Brazilian hair extensions are a popular choice with celebrities.

Synthetic hair

These are the choice if you’re on a budget. They’re cheap as they are not real hair but due to this they don’t look as stylish as other options and they don’t last as long. However, these are extremely popular due to the price.

Real Human Hair

These are the most popular type of hair extensions on the market. There are plenty of different options, from style through to colour. You can also style these extensions as you would your normal hair – something you can’t do with synthetic extensions. If they are carefully looked after they can also last a lot longer than synthetic hair extensions. However, they are much more expensive.

Sew in hair extensions

It is exactly what is says above, the hair salon sew the extensions onto your real hair, you cannot remove them yourself and if you wish to have them removed must have it done professionally at a salon. They don’t take a lot to maintain and you can dye or style them however you wish.

Glued / Fusion hair extensions

A group of hair is glued into your current hair at the root using strong glue. These extensions can last up to several months. They are easy to remove these as all you need to do is get a cotton wool pad soaked in a formula – such as nail varnish remover – and wrap the pad around the glue and it should come apart easily; this means that there is no additional cost of having them removed at a hair salon – although going to the salon maybe an easier option.
