Have You Considered Hair Extensions?

Aug 17, 2007
How many times have you seen a picture of a celebrity in the tabloids or on TV and they have really short hair, but then the next time you see them their hair is incredibly long? How do they do it? One simple word: hair extensions. There are three types on the market right now. You have synthetic hair extensions, human hair extensions and there are clip in hair extensions, which seem to be the easiest to use.

Synthetic hair extensions are already dyed and some are styled before they are attached. They have a different texture than human hair. Synthetic hair is less expensive than actual human hair, but human hair extensions are the most preferred since they look more realistic and feel more natural than synthetic extensions. Some really good extensions on the market today are the Jessica Simpson hair extensions. Many of the techniques used while adding extensions come from African-American stylists that consist of weaving the synthetic or real human hair into the already existing hair. This creates a full and long look immediately.

You can attach the extensions like hairpieces. They can be braided into the already existing hair, or they can be glued in. They are intended to enhance the thickness and length of our hair. When choosing extensions, make sure you choose an extension that matches your hair texture and color since they cannot be dyed to match. When putting the extensions in by braiding, it will cause extra tension and stress on your scalp and could cause headaches. They can cause some irritation and your own hair could possibly fall out on its own.

There are many different techniques out there when adding extensions and they are a little less harsh on the scalp. Keep in mind that the synthetic extensions are not as heavy as human hair extensions and will not cause as much damage to the scalp. Your best bet is to purchase the clip in extensions, which cause very little damage to the hair and scalp. You can add the fullness and sexiness for just one night with the clip in extensions and avoid using the rather unfriendly chemicals, which can harm your hair.

Since the option of hair extensions is now available, more and more people are doing it. If you want long hair then all you have to do is go shopping at a quality beauty supply store or ask your hairdresser for them. You can add length to your hair for any special occasion. Once the special occasion is over, you can take the extensions out or you can continue to keep them in. The choice is easy to make.

Since hair extensions are so versatile, you can change your hairstyle and even your hair color. There are such a wide variety of colors available in extensions; you can easily match your hair color and the texture. They also offer a simple solution for different types of hair including fine hair, curly hair, and thick and wavy hair. Hair extensions can really add that extra pizzazz to your hair and with very little effort.
