"Real vs. Synthetic Hair
The first thing to understand when choosing any type of hair extensions is that they can be made of real hair or from synthetic product. Although real hair products are usually more expensive, these are definitely much better than synthetic products, which will never look quite like real hair. There only time the synthetic extensions may be the best is if:
– You’re having dreadlocks put in
– You deliberately want to add in a false look for example with neon extensions
Unless either of these applies, you should always go for real hair. Even then there is often a choice of which type of hair to go for. The golden rule is to try and match your own hair type as much as possible, so if you are a Westerner then buy European hair, which is treated to be available in any natural shade. Asian hair extensions are the best extensions to go for only if you actually are Asian, or they will not look like your own.
Different Types of Salon Hair Extensions
Visiting the salon to get hair extensions remains popular, where there are basically two main choices of extensions offered:
– Individual strand extensions
– Weft extensions
Individual strand extensions involve taking small sections of your own hair and adding in the extension hair to the strands. These can look pretty good, and are the choice of many celebrities, but there can also be dire consequences if they go wrong. The fact that chemical substances are used to basically ‘stick’ the hair extension onto your own hair means that it is pretty difficult to remove them without damaging your hair or scalp. This method can also be expensive, since the extensions will only remain in place for a few months before they start to fall out and have to be completely reapplied.
Weft hair extensions look like a long curtain of hair, and are attached instead using corn rows. Although this is much better for your hair, you still have to visit the salon every few weeks as your own hair grows. The cornrows can also be quite uncomfortable to have against your head over long periods of time.
Types Of Hair Extensions
A short-term option for enjoying hair extensions comes with the clip-ins which are easily applied or removed within a matter of minutes. Clip-in extensions are likely to feature a modest to large collection of hair attached to either a comb or clip that is effective at adding an extra degree of length, volume, or highlights. This is likely to feature as one of the less versatile options, but the ease in attaching makes it possible to attach or remove several times per day without needing to be concerned with damage to the natural hair.
In the process of applying the heat fusion extensions it is necessary to rely on a specific type of hair-friendly adhesive such as keratin, glue, or wax. It helps to use the most desirable adhesive to match the personal needs and lifestyle, since some of these attachment methods like wax can have a quite low melt point which can result in difficulties when it comes to curling or blow drying. It is also reported that some of the adhesives can damage or otherwise have a negative impact on the hair.
A hair extension method that is seeing an increase in popularity includes the process of cold fusion. Cold fusion hair extensions use a similar attaching process seen with heat fusion, but rather than applying an adhesive, a unique ultrasound device is used for creating the strong hold. Since no heat is used in the process of bonding, it is gentle on the hair.
A skin weft extension is made with wide, long sections that are attached to the natural hair in the upper region and secured in place using glue or tape. This type of extension is easily able to match the natural hair and in most situations it can be very difficult to notice the different between the real hair and extensions. A type of extension that is quite quick and easy to attach in the home without need to visit a professional salon.
A microbead hair extension is highly versatile option and is often usable more than once. A microbead extension relies on using a special metal bead with a silicone inner lining. The method relies on threading the natural hair through the bead with the bonded edge of the extension, which is than secured in place using a clamp system.
Human Hair Extensions
The ultimate solution for fine, thinning, or short hair, human hair can come from many different sources, but some of the best is from India. There it is cut ceremonially, and then sent to a factory to be carefully cleaned, inspected, and processed to the finished product. Quality human hair will last the longest and hold up to heat, styling, and mistreatment.
The highest grade of human hair extensions available, the term “Remy” means that the hair cuticle is still intact and not stripped like lower quality extensions. Also, with Remy extensions the cuticle lies in the same direction, insuring a natural flow and simulation of natural hair. Remy extensions are the most natural looking option and are highly recommended by professionals in the beauty industry. Remy extensions blend flawlessly and have the same brilliance and shine as natural hair. Remy extensions have the most styling versatility and can be heat styled, washed, and treated just like natural hair. It also has the longest lifetime of all extension types, when properly maintained.
Although they tend to be the most time-consuming to apply, fusion hair extensions tend to be the most discreet and natural-looking extensions. Fusion refers to a specific method of applying extensions where 100% Remy human hair is attached strand by strand to the natural hair at the roots. The keratin tips are fused to the natural hair using a melting connector. This method is recommended for individuals with hair strong enough to support the weight of the extension and the bond. When applied correctly, fusion extensions are safe and do not damage the natural hair. Fusion extensions can last up to 4-6 months with proper maintenance and care before they should be redone.

These are hair extensions with micro clips at one end that allow you to clip on the accessory to your hair. You can save some cash if you clip on the accessories by yourself. The task does not require expert handling by a professional hairdresser.

Other hair extension techniques require the application of bonding glue at one end of the extensions so that the glued tip will stick securely on your hair root. The process is referred to as bonding. Bonding is as easy as sticking on a false eyelash on your eye lid. Detaching the hair extensions is easy, but you need to use a special glue remover designed for this purpose.
Is the best known method of hair extension attachment. You must utilize your natural hair to create tracks where you will have someone weave or sew the hair extensions onto. For satisfactory results, it is essential that you make the tracks as close to your scalp as possible.

Some other hair extensions can be attached following the “hot glue gun” method. The extensions are fastened to your hair using a hot glue gun. The hot glue is applied to the extensions then attached to the root of your hair. This method is labor-intensive and can take several hours of your time.
