How Do You Know Which Hair Extension Is Best For You?

Nowadays, people say that if you don’t do anything to better yourself the shame is on you. I mean, hey, all the things you can employ to enhance yourself, physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually – basically holistically, is all within your reach. The internet is there, your mobile phone is there, and you can shop, read, exercise, and learn, etc., on the go. You can buy or DIY. So whatever excuse you can come up with is irrelevant. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all up for the love who you are and what you’re given rhetoric. Everyone should be grateful for who they are and with the body they are born with, I pretty much agree that real and not the boastful kind of confidence comes out of that. But let me tell you this, one thing is constant in this world is change. And change should always be for the better. Man’s evolution in most forms is towards moving forwards and not only adapting. 

So when it comes to beauty, I love it that women have been more courageous and upfront with just about all the enhancements they are doing to look and feel better. Celebrities and normal people have shamelessly admitted to having plastic surgeries; using makeup, eyelash extensions, wigs, hair extensions, prosthetics and all the others stuff.

One thing that is blowing up the beauty scene is hair extensions and they are surely majorly trending not only among celebrities and social media beauty gurus but also normal girls like you and me. I don’t know about you, but it’s a fact that I wanted to try them for so long now. But after typing hair extensions on my browser, Google returns thousands of info and photos and I’m left overwhelmed. But a good thing about the internet is that it is never short of data to keep you informed about things. 

We all know that hair extensions have become more popular than ever because not only does it give you the opportunity to add some volume to your hair but it also allows you to add length to what you’re currently have. Now if you’re like me, and y’all are interested in hair extensions but want some questions answered before making the commitment after all it’s an investment, here’s some info I’ve gathered to help us out in making that decision. 

Most of us, the first thing to consider is the cost. Think about for what purpose you will use them for. If it’s for long term, you must put your money on high-quality hair extensions. If you’re then going to use it for just one occasion, you can opt to look for wigs for sale in the mall or online. 

As for the quality, there are a couple types: Synthetic Hair - made of plastic fibers and of the lowest quality; Non-Remy is another low quality and can only last for weeks; Remy is made of real human hair like Malaysian hair, Peruvian hair and Brazilian hair, one of the highest quality ones where hair cuticles are intact, pricier, can last for more than a year with proper care and can be styled just like your own hair. 

Another thing to consider are the application methods. Popular methods include: glued, clip-ins, weft, sewn and tape in. Glued is done using a type of adhesive and hair must be reapplied every few days. Clip-ins are the easiest to use as you can flip it in and when you’re done flip it out. On the hand, wefts are a bundle of hair that can be attached using either a double sided tape made for extensions. The sew-ins is where your own hair is sown in rows towards the bottom and a hair weft is sewn in. With this method you cannot wear your hair up, cannot wash, and is typically very bulky. Fusion/micro beads are costly, takes a lot of time to apply but can last you for months.

I hope you guys and girls learned something from this blog post and be able to choose what will suit you and your needs. Because you know, whatever makes you feel good, go for it. After all, life is too short to have boring hair.
