What should you look for if you want flawless hair extensions? Let us glean through the misinformation to find how hair extensions work?

Hair extensions for thinning hair

Hair extensions by default add length and volume to your natural hair. You can find hair extensions in a range of shades to add a bit of glamour to your hairstyle. Whether you go for a simple clip on extension or a more elaborate halo extension, you can expect envy-inducing voluminous locks as long as you give the responsibility of your extensions to a hair extensions salon with ample experience. If you are looking for such a salon, please feel free to contact us.

Now, let us take a look at different kinds of extensions you can choose from based on your needs. You can go for permanent, semi-permanent or temporary extensions depending on your preference and budget.

How do fusion/pre-bonded hair extensions work?

Hair extension specialists use a heat gun to attach extensions to your roots. Pre-bonded hair lasts for about three to four months.  The fusion hair comes with pre-installed glue right on the tips of hair strands. The heat gun melts the glue to solidify the keratin-filled bond in the extension.

How do tape-in hair extensions work

Tape-in hair extensions last up to 8 weeks if maintained well. Your extension stylist would use adhesive weft tape to insert extensions onto your natural hair on both sides. This method allows your hair to grow out naturally, and it is a pretty effective way of adding volume.

How do halo hair extensions work?

Halo extensions sit gently on the top of your scalp, secured with an invisible and thin wire. This perhaps is the most non-committal, and least damaging of hair extensions. Halo extensions last up to 6 months with proper care.  

How do clip-in hair extensions work?

Clip-in extensions literally have to be clipped-in. They are wefts of hair attached securely to a lace base with clips. You can clip the extensions onto your natural roots. You’ll have non-committal, voluminous hair in an instant. Clip-in extensions can last up to 6 months.

How do sew-in hair extensions work?

Sew-in extensions are time-consuming but well-suited to thick hair. Your hair extension specialist would sew the extensions with a needle and thread right onto your natural hair (braided). Sew in extensions last up to 8 weeks.

How do micro links work?

Hair extension stylists use metal links (also called tubes) to attach extensions to your natural hair. Micro link clips are made with either aluminium or copper. The extensions last up to 4 months if maintained well.

Hair extensions have thankfully lost the obvious factor. But, you need a professional hairstylist to take care of your extensions if you want natural-looking, voluminous locks. If you are looking for help with hair extensions, please use the form below or call or text us.
