Types Of Hair Extensions

Hair extensions have been around for some time and if you are new to using them, there are some things you need to know about them. There are different types of hair extensions and you have to know about which types suits you the best. There are so many terms and you can get lost in them if you don’t have a clear idea of what they all mean.

The first thing you need to know about hair extensions is that they come in synthetic and human hair. Synthetic hair is coated with silicone so that they will look as glossy as natural human hair. Natural hair is more expensive but they tend to look better and blend in much easily. But now there is synthetic hair that you will not be able to tell apart from natural hair. So you need to look for quality when it comes to hair extensions. You also have to think about maintenance when it comes to having extensions. Synthetic ones will last about 3 months if you take care of them well. The natural hair will behave just like your normal hair.

You can ask your hair extensions in Australia about the different hair extensions that they have and which will suit you best.There are loop hair extensions where you loop the extensions through your natural hair. The extensions are then clamped down with pliers and a metal bead is used at the finish. You also get weave hair extensions that are great for people with thick hair.

Then you also get tape hair extensions that are semi-permanent. A good thing about this type of extensions is that it is very easy to fit them in and it doesn’t take a very long time to do it. The extensions come pre-taped. They are then fitted onto either side of the person’s hair. You can keep them on from six weeks to 3 months. You’ll also find that tape extensions are easy to maintain. The pre-bonded hair extensions are another popular type of extensions and they are bonded to your natural hair. This requires the use of adhesive. It will take quite a long time to apply them. You will be sitting in the salon for about 4 hours. But the benefit is that you will get to keep them in for longer. They can be kept for about 6 months. But you have to ask the salon about how you can keep them well maintained and when you have to come back to take them out. You can look for more inspiration on how hair extensions are used online.
