Now that summer is over and everyone seems to be getting back in the groove of things, it feels like September is the new January. It’s like a New Year for a lot of people and businesses as they gear up for fall and get life back into a normal routine. For us it’s been busy and the time just seems to fly by. I never saw so much heavy rain in my entire life as we had this summer.
I thought just for fun, we should take a look at the hair extension trend.
Celebrities, stars and people everywhere have been using them for a long time already. The great thing about them is that you can have long hair in an instant.
What are they made of?
They vary from 100% real human hair to synthetic hair or a mixture of human, synthetic and animal hair.You can get them in just about any color, texture and length.
How do you apply them?
The hair extension gets applied to a small section of your own hair, then your hair gets criss-crossed over the extension, then the technician braids your hair together or bonds them together with a heated clamp which melts the solution around the hair. This is known as “heat sealing”. Don’t attempt to do this on your own or you’ll end up with an uneven hair length along with some damage to your own hair.
How long do hair extensions last?
They will last up to four months. After that the bonding will begin to loosen up and fall off. Hair extensions are fantastic for a short period of time or for a special occasion. It’s up to you how long you want to keep them, but many people I know found if they kept them in for longer periods of time, they did damage the natural hair especially if your own hair is fine.
How do you take care of those extensions?
They should be treated the same way as your natural hair, but they do wear out, especially as your hair grows. Even if you use top quality professional hair care products.
How should you remove them?
To prevent any extra damage to your own hair, it’s best to get them removed by a professional.
Disadvantages of hair extensions?
They can damage your natural hair. You will need to get the ends of your own hair cut off after the extensions are removed because the glue that’s been used to bond the extensions to your natural hair can burn your hair and the additonal weight of the extensions often cause your own hair to fall out. Some people get more headaches and some people feel more allergies. In any case, it’s fun to try something new, but discuss it with a pro before you venture out to do this.
My Suggestion? Try the new clip-in hair extensions.
They are funky, easy to use and versatile. They come in many colours and lengths, so just have fun with them.
