Tips for the Perfect Real Hair Extensions

Most of us often wonder how celebrities can just transform their look. It is quite exciting to see the celebrities transreal hair extensions pictureforming their whole appearance. Well, the secret behind the transformation is often  real hair extensions.

When we say real hair extensions, we are referring to extensions made from real human hair not synthetic extensions which are made with synthetic keratin hair fibres.

Now most of us are apprehensive about hair damage, and this is why clip-in hair extensions may be the best option to choose.  If you want your real hair extensions to be perfect, then there are certain tips that can surely help you.

 Follow these tips and get flawlessly beautiful real hair extensions.

  1. Keep the Hair Extensions Sweet and Short

Now most of us do get tempted to get the Rapunzel look, but that may not work out perfectly well. The more practical idea is to have short hair extensions about 16 to 22 inches. The reason is that short hair extensions tend to give a more natural look than those long locks. real hair extensions photo

Real hair extensions should be the same length as your own hair. For example, if you have shoulder length hair then you can choose hair extensions about 16 to 18 inches long. The 20 to 24 inch hair extensions work well for mid length hair.

Now the hair texture matters too when you are getting real hair extensions. For example, if you have fine hair, then you can choose 160 to 180-gram set. For thick hair you will need a 220-gram set and for normal hair 180 to 200-gram set will work fine.

  1. Trimming

Now it is very important that your hair extensions should be trimmed so that they can easily match up with your natural cut. Usually, most hair extensions tend to have a blunt end, so you need to request your stylist for a dry cut. This can help to blend the hair extensions with the natural look.

  1. Perfect Colouringimage of real hair extensions

The good news is that most clip-in real hair extensions do have a base colour that matches with your hair. However, you can always be a bit innovative and add highlights and the low highlights to help in the blending process.

The safer option is to take the hair extensions to the stylist for the highlights. However, before any chemical is applied to the hair, ensure that the extensions are made of real human hair. The reason is that synthetic hair tends to react differently to dyes.

  1. Get Hold of a Curling Iron

Now there are times when you might find it hard to blend your short hair with the extensions. Well, you need not dwell on this issue because there is a good enough solution to this problem.

Take a curling iron and use it to create curls more like the mermaid locks. However, it is important to spray the hair with a heat protection spray because it will help the extensions last longer and protect them from damage.

  1. Washing Your Hair Extensionsphoto of real hair extensions

It often happens that when you buy real hair extensions, they have a glossy look. This means that you cannot just clip-in the extensions to your hair.

The solution is that the hair extensions need to be washed. Ensure that you use a moisturizing shampoo and after that apply a conditioner so that you can get rid of the excess glossy look of the hair extensions. After this procedure, the hair extensions should be allowed to dry overnight.

  1. Choosing the Appropriate Extension Set

You should choose your extension set depending upon the weight of your hair. The most commonly used extension sets have ten wefts. Now if you have thick hair, you might need to use the entire hair extension set, but it may not bereal hair extensions images the case always.

Sometimes the best way to get natural looking hair is to use larger wefts at the base of your hair. It is important that you should be following the natural scalp shape, and the medium length wefts need to be clipped at the base of the head.

You should ensure that the longest wefts are around the head’s widest part. The short wefts should be right by the temple.

Author M1K3    Category Human Hair Extensions    

 Synthetic Hair VS Human Hair Extensions Compared

Women love hair extensions because they can give them a new look every day. This love for hair extensions began as early as the Victorian Era in Britain and today it is hugely endorsed by celebrities and stylists all over the world. human hair extensions photo

Extensions are available in a huge variety of colours, lengths and materials. Hair extensions are the most convenient and quickest way to increase the volume and length of your hair. You can change your look in a couple of hours.

There are synthetic extensions and human hair extensions available in the market today. The human hair extensions are more natural and can be treated in much the same way as you would your natural hair.

Here our comparisons between these 2 main types of hair extensions.

1. Aesthetics

Normally there are 4 types of ethnic hair types are used for making human hair extensions, these include.

  • Chinesehuman hair extensions image

  • Indonesian

  • Indian

  • European or Caucasian

Most of the hair extensions are made from Asian hair. The Chinese hair is comparatively thicker and straighter. Indian hair, is thinner but has a more attractive texture. The European hair is the most popular  owing to its fineness, they are very much in demand in the market, which has made this type of extension the more expensive.

Synthetic Hair extensions

Since these extensions are made from artificial fibres the texture and quality may not be as good as  natural human hair extensions.

human hair extensions pictureThanks to improving technology in the process of making synthetic hair extensions, the quality is increasing and they now available in a large variety of colours. But if you are looking for a good match to your hair colour then it can be difficult to find the exact match colour.

2. Longevity

With good care and proper maintenance the tape-in real hair extensions can last up to around 6 to 8 weeks. The glue-in types can be used for 4 to 8 weeks. The protein-bonded extensions can last for 6 to 8 weeks. If you are not using them every day the clip-in hair extensions can last for almost a year.

Synthetic Hair Extensions

 There are some newer types of synthetic extension that can withstand heat styling, these will be labelled as such but most cannot.

Continuous styling will lead to frizzing and tangling of the synthetic hair extension. Because of these issues, synthetic hair extensions do not last as long as real hair extensions.

3. Styling options

Human Hair Extensions

Since these are real human hair you can use the usual hair styling products on them. But make sure that you keep theimage of human hair extensions styling products away from the roots. You need to be a little careful when styling with heat and should be only done with the lower heat settings of the appliance.

Do the styling before attaching the extensions to your original hair. But sewn-in and glued-in extensions cannot be taken off for styling.

Synthetic hair extensions

As mentioned earlier synthetic hair extensions are made from a plastic material. And we all know what heat does to plastic. The synthetic fibres will melt or frizz when it is exposed to a lot of heat.

It will cause a lot of damage and mess.  There are some new synthetic extensions that are designed to be more heat friendly, but most of them are not.

Synthetic hair extensions are suitable for those who are looking for a quick and short term style change. Synthetic extensions are usually available in several styles to suit your fashion demands.

Author M1K3    Category Human Hair Extensions    

Remy Hair Extensions.

Finding hair extensions that are of the best quality, look great and suit you, can be quite a task. There are many asremy hair extensions photopects you should take into consideration before deciding which hair extensions to get, and where from, here are a few things you should think about when choosing Remy Hair Extensions.

Know what you will get.

Remy Hair Extensions are made out of high quality, real human hair that has not been exposed to hair damaging elements such as hair dye or hair straightening chemicals. 

Remy has been the choice of high grade hair product manufacturers for many years now, for use in hairpieces, hair extensions and wigs. Remy Human Hair gives the wearer’s hair style a natural, healthy look, shine and bounce. 

Remy Hair is superior to other types of hair used in extensions, in non-Remy hair, the cuticles have been stripped off. This is not the case with Remy Hair, as great effort is made to keep the cuticles intact and facing the same way. They employ several measures to protect and preserve the hair strands.

Conserving the cuticles and matching them with the unidirectional fashion trend, makes this type of extension look remy hair extensions imageextremely natural and genuine. This type of care makes sure the hair extension keeps on being shiny, soft, silky and tangle free for as long as it is being used.

Hair donors take great care of their hair before donating it, and after it is collected the hair is carefully sorted out by professionals. This ensures all the cuticles are the same length and  of the same quality. This precise process takes a great amount of time to complete, thus making this type of hair extension the most expensive and sought after extension in the market.

Once you start to use this type of hair extension, and hear the many compliments you get on how beautiful and healthy your hair looks, you will not want to go back to lesser quality ones.

Other things to think about.

The main difference between  100% human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions is that synthetic hair can be easily damaged, both from exposure to the sun or to other natural elements such as rain and wind.  You need to be very careful when styling with heating products as well.

Synthetic hair will not last as long as real human hair does, it is very difficult to style and can stand out from your real hair; it can be easy for people to tell you are wearing fake hair extensions. remy hair extensions picture

On the other hand, real human hair extensions are much more robust and versatile; you can dye them, curl or straighten them, style them, wash them and apply all your favourite products on the Remy Hair Extensions, just as if it was your own real hair.

Unfortunately, high quality comes at a more expensive price tag, since the difference in price for Remy Hair verses synthetic hair can be very dramatic; the best quality Remy Hair Extensions can cost up to 10 times more than regular synthetic hair does. Remy Hair though can make up for the cost when you take into consideration that they will  last and look better for longer than the lesser quality hair extensions.

However, if you search, there are many brands and hair extension producers that use Remy Hair, so getting to the right price-quality combination for you is merely an internet search away.

Once you decide on how much money you are willing to spend on Remy Hair Extensions, you should check out different suppliers around your area to see what they offer.
