Hair Extensions

Hair extensions add flair to your own hair which are applied in neat rows by selecting very fine triangular sections of your hair. The hair extension is fused with your natural hair creating a natural bond. With this same technique small strands of extension hair are attached one by one to small sections of your own hair by either weaving in, gluing, heat fusing, clamping with metal tubes or using waxes and polymers.

Whatever your lifestyle, hair extensions are easy to maintain and last approximately three to six months or more if properly cared for.

Type

Indian and Brazilian Remi virgin hair is a name you will hear when you shop around for hair extensions. It is the most popular for a human hair extension but also the most expensive.

Synthetic hair is man-made fiber that is made to look like your own hair. This hair is the most inexpensive. If you want to spend less money on your hair extension this could be fine for you as long as you realize that this hair will probably become dry a lot sooner than a higher quality hair.

Hair Care Tips

Wear a cap when swimming or keep your hair out of the water. Chlorine and salt water can cause the hair to tangle and mat up. It is recommended to wear your hair up or in a ponytail when you swim or exercise. Overheating is one of your hair's biggest enemies. Be careful not to use too much heat when you use a blowdryer or curling iron. It is best to let your hair dry naturally.
