5 Reasons to Try Hair Extensions

Your hair is a large part of your identity. The color, length, and style you choose says a lot about your personality and who you are. Having a hairstyle you are proud of instills a sense of confidence and boosts self-esteem that you carry with your personal life as well as your career. There are times that our natural hair needs a little extra help. Hair extensions can give you just that!

What Are Hair Extensions?

Hair extensions serve the purpose of adding length and fullness to your hair. Extensions are made of either natural-looking synthetic fibers or authentic human hair. There are 5 types of hair extensions.

  • Tape-in hair extensions - last 4-8 weeks, applied with tape glue, easily removed with glue remover
  • Clip-on hair extensions - Can be put in and taken out daily, come with clips that are then attached to your existing hair
  • Sew-in hair extensions/weave - last 6-8 weeks, extensions are sewn into your natural hair
  • Fusion hair extensions - last 4 months, extensions are fused to your natural hair with adhesives

The type of extensions you choose depends on personal preference, budget, and your goal. Extensions made of synthetic fibers are natural looking and more cost-effective as compared to extensions made of human hair.
One of the best features of extensions is that they are temporary. However, some types of extensions last longer than others. When choosing the best application method for your needs, take into account the length of time you want your extensions to last. Let's take a look at five reasons you should try hair extensions.

Solution for Medically Related Hair Thinning or Loss

Certain medical conditions and even medications can cause hair to become brittle and thin. Hair extensions are an instant solution if you are experiencing hair loss or thinning from a medical condition. Extensions will match your natural hair and can be strategically placed to give you a little extra coverage where you need it.

Preparing for Vacation

If you're getting ready to go on vacation, you want your hair to look its best. You may even want to change things up a bit and try a new style. Hair extensions are a great way to instantly pump up your look for your big trip. Who knows, you may even find a new style that you want to keep around long past your big vacation!

A Solution to a Bad Hair Day

It's no secret that we all have bad hair days. Maybe your hair just isn't cooperating that day or maybe you woke up late and do not have time to tease and style your natural hair. No worries! Clip in extensions, style how you want and walk out the door with a style that looks like it took hours to achieve!

Camouflage a Bad Hair Cut

We've all been there! You either choose a new cut that ends up not complimenting you the way you envisioned or your hairstylist didn't quite see your vision. Unfortunately, it takes only a second to make hair shorter, but a much longer for it to grow back. The use of extensions is a great way to hide a bad hair cut.

Extensions Won't Damage Your Hair

Blow drying, straightening, curling, sprays, and dyes can damage your natural hair over time. Give your hair a break by using extensions to give new life to your existing hair without the need for excessive hair products. Rest assured, even the application of extensions will leave your hair unharmed!
