But before you choose any type of hair extension products randomly, here is a small guide about the right type of extensions for you,
Right Type Of Hair Extensions
Clip-in Hair Extensions
These come in strands of hair locks and have silicone or fabric attached at their bases. Clips are attached to this base and these can be easily clipped onto your hair. You can snap open and close the clip easily onto your natural hair. These are not permanent and you can remove them and add whenever you want. They take around 5 to 15 minutes to apply. These do not require any chemicals, heat, or pressure for installation. These need to be washed after 20 years. You can simply brush, condition and shampoo these locks. They can also be curled, straightened, or colored. These can last for 3 to 6 months.
Tape-in Hair Extensions
These are pre-taped hair extension products that can be glued together on the side of your hair. These need to be aligned with the roots, and so should be put by a hairdresser. They require a heated tool to heat the glue. For removing them, you will need a glue remover. These can be damaging to your real hair. The process also takes around 40 minutes to an hour. You need to be careful while using hair conditioners as it may cause the tape to get loose or fall off. These are made with human hair and hence can be styled the way you desire. These are semi-permanent hair styling products that can last for 8 weeks.
Sew-in Hair Extensions
Sew-in hair products can be used by braiding your natural hair into cornrows first and then sowing the weave of the extension products into the cornrow. These are used for those who have thicker hair. This is a very long process and as the application process is very tight, it puts a strain on the scalp. It also does not work very well with lighter or thinner hair. This is a technical process and is best done by a hairdresser. These generally last for 6 to 8 weeks. You need to wash the hair products with a protein product to minimize damage or weakening of your hair.
