Many women long for longer locks and full, voluminous hair. Whether you’ve recently cut your hair short, can’t quite get it to the length you want, or have locks that fall flat and need a little oomph, extensions can provide the ideal solution.
Long-Term vs. Short-Term Options
There are so many choices when it comes to hair extension types. More temporary options include clip in hair extensions where a low-profile clip sits near the scalp and holds in place until they are removed. Clip on extensions can be put in by a professional, or you can take them on and off on your own. We recommend doing these yourself for cost purposes, as they will not stay in place for a long period of time. They’re perfect for a night out with friends or a date, and then can be removed at the end of the night and put in the next day.
Longer-term choices can range from hair weaves to fusion extensions. Hair weaves can be worn for several months, but are not ideal for fine hair. Fusion extensions are placed with a long-term bonding technique. Both are easy to style just like your natural hair.
Human Hair Vs. Synthetic Hair Extensions
Once you’ve selected the type of extensions that are right for you, your next choice is whether you want human hair extensions or synthetic extensions. Human hair extensions can cost more but are easy to clean, manage and style. You can apply heat and wash and dry them as you would your own hair. Synthetic hair should be washed with a special shampoo and conditioned, but they should not be soaked for a prolonged period of time. Styling synthetic hair requires a bit more caution, but there are many heat-friendly options so that you can straighten or curl your longer, fuller mane to your liking.
