A Guide to Hair Extensions

Jun 14, 2008
There are a lot of effective ways of hair extensions without damaging your hair while allowing the hair to grow longer and healthier.

The first step in the start of Hair extensions is to determine which type or procedure you will use. Some of the commonest hair extension methods are the Wefts and Individual Strands. The individual strands hair extensions involve the use of between 20 to 50 or more strands of extension hair which can be natural or synthetic and applying them to some sections of your hair through weaving in, clamping with metal rods, heat fusing, gluing, or the use of polymers or waxes. Many of these methods of hair extensions will involve the application of chemical materials to coat your hair.

The individual strands hair extensions is usually redone after 6 months of operation. The problem most people contend with while removing the hair extensions is that they damage their hair. Melting plastic or some chemical substances during this type of hair extensions can damage your hair or the scalp.

Weft hair extensions on the other hand are safer and better than the individual strand methods of hair extensions. Wefts are curtain-like hair attached together at the top and allowed to flow freely at the bottom of the hair. Wefts can be handmade or mechanically made.

Handmade wefts is usually the better option because the color of the wefts will match perfectly the color of your hair during the weft making process.

Mechanically made wefts do come in continuous widths which are cut to size. Hand made wefts are generally thicker than those made with machines and they last longer as well. Mechanically produced Wefts usually come from less quality hair and European weft making machine are scarce to find.

The best choice you can have is to go for European hand made Wefts for your hair extensions. The virgin hair is the best quality raw materials for wefts that you can use as a human made hair extension for your hair. Hand made Wefts are custom made to suit your head perfectly. Wefts are better than individual strands because there are lesser chances of having hair breakages and hair losses.

The quality and prices of hair extensions usually determines which style one will go for. Wefts might not be as cheap as individual strands but the quality of hair as well as effects of the wefts on your hair is quite good.
