Hair is one of the physical characteristics we can change constantly to express our personalities. Hair extensions make it possible for one to go from a bob today and long locks tomorrow. Choosing the right type of hair that your extensions are made is very important when you are looking to perfect your style. One has a variety of options when it comes to what the actual extensions are made of, to the texture of the hair- real or synthetic, straight or curly?
Real vs. Synthetic hair
While synthetic might be cheaper, you may experience some difficulties blending or styling your hair. Some synthetic hair prevents you from using any sort of heating tool as it can melt the extension. Using real hair extensions eliminates these problems and can easily blend in with your hair. Real hair can be washed like normal hair.
Matching the colour and texture of the hair extensions with your natural hair is very important. Imagine how weird it would look if you have curly hair and put on a straight weave. Hair extensions may not be the exact match to your hair texture-however you want to get the one that is closest.
Real human hair extensions also come in different grading. These grades determines how much the weave is and if it real virgin or unprocessed. Hair extensions/weaves grading will be further explained in our next post…
