Other Types of Hair Extensions
There are so many fun things you can do with your hair including adding extensions. They can add volume as well as length and help you to achieve different hair styles. Quality extensions will be easy to style as your own hair.
Other types of hair extensions include:
Tape- In Extensions- They are hair pieces that are about an inch wide that have special tape at the weft to secure around small pieces of hair close to the root. Tape-Ins can last over at least a month or longer with proper care. They are fun for a short term look but super versatile has your natural hair is blended giving thr illusion of REALLY your hair as extensions are undetectable. However, if you exercise frequently then these are not a good choice since the adhesive will be ruined from heat.
Clip-Ins- Clips-Ins are a great choice because they are a popular choice since they may be removed. Similar to a wig, you can go for different styles plus they are easier to be pre-styled since you don't have to reach to the back of your head. Clip-Ins are simply a bundle of hair that have clips sewn onto the wefts. The extensions themselves can last for at least a year with proper maintenance. They can stay in the hair for several days since there is no semi-permanent installation. Clip-Ins are also a favorite for celebrities due to the versatility and can help them get ready carpet ready in a short amount of time. Proper maintenance is essential for the hair to last but also for the clip ins to stay in good shape. Washing can be done in the sink or shower. Wefts should still be dried properly to avoid matting and rusting of the clips.
Fusion or pre-bonded hair extensions- Any hair extension that is bonded usually takes a piece such as a metal bead to secure in small pieces of hair and then extensions are sewn in with a needle and thread through the weft and the beads. This is ideal for the longest amount of permanent installation wear since they can be worn for around three months. Quality hair bundles may be reused after that by tightening or reinstalling if hair is properly cared for.
