Hair extensions are great for increasing the length and volume of your hair as opposed to wigs. Nowadays many celebrities also use these hair extensions and their demand has been increasing constantly. There are many kinds of hair extensions available in the market at different prices. The synthetic hair extensions are the cheapest ones while human hair extensions are the most expensive ones. The availability of different kinds of hair extensions also depends on how much you want to spend on them. If you are in the mood for some really great hair extensions, you have to spend the money to get them.
There was a time when human hair extensions, also known as Remy Human Hair, were so expensive that only some celebrities could afford to get them. However, nowadays there are so many sellers in the market that you can easily get your hands on good quality hair extensions at a reasonable price.
Before you make the decision to purchase hair extensions you need to know all the common terms used by the sellers so that you get exactly what you wanted or needed. For instance, if it says that the extension is made from virgin hair, it implies that the hair has not been exposed to any kind of treatment such as dyeing, straightening, curling etc. All of these treatments have effect on the hair cuticle.
Another term that you need to know is single drawn or double drawn. When the sellers say that the extensions are single drawn, it means that all hair came from one person only while the term double drawn indicates that the hair came from more than one person.
Remy hair is term used for hair that came from Indian women but if human hair extensions are not made from Remy hair, it does not mean that they are not if a good quality. For instance, hair that came from Chinese or Japanese sources would still be great but won’t be called Remy Hair.
The human hair obtained from various sources is tied together by knots to create a weft which is then either braided on to your natural hair or used as clip-ons. Hair extensions are either permanent or temporary, depending on which type you want. Usually it is better to get temporary hair extensions as they can be easily removed and it is easier to take care of the hair extensions.
One important thing about human hair extensions that you need to remember is that you have to take good care of them just as you take care of your natural hair. You need to shampoo it once a week and condition the hair after that. You also need to comb your hair to get it free from tangles and keep it in a safe place.
The best thing about human hair extensions is that you can get it colored according to your natural hair color and have it styled as well. For instance, you can get hair extensions that have varying lengths so that it adds more volume to your hair.
