Are Hair Extensions For You?
We all make hair mistakes. We go in for the chop, expecting to come out looking like Katie Holmes, but end up looking more like our grandmothers. Many women decide on hair extensions. It may be to fix up that terrible cut or just to give your hair more volume and shine.
Hair extensions look fantastic, when fitted by a professional. In just a few hours your whole look can be transformed. A recent survey showed that both men and women preferred the look of long, thick hair to short hair. While not all of us are born with beautiful hair, we can certainly fake it.
You probably already know that there are some bad extension jobs out there. These are the ones that you spot a mile away, where you can tell where the real hair ends and the extensions begin. There are good jobs too, these are the ones you don't even notice. Make sure you enlist the services of a salon professional to apply your extensions. This way, you'll end up with one of those fantastic jobs no one even notices.

Getting the right colour match is important. While you can style and colour human hair extensions to your hearts content, it's a good idea to match the hair to the colour you already have before you have it attached.
The best hair for extensions is virgin Indian Remy hair. Virgin means that the hair has never been bleached or coloured, and is completely healthy and natural. Remy refers to the way the cuticle faces in the hair. Remy hair has a straight cuticle the whole way through, meaning the hair will sit straight and flat. Indian hair is thought by professionals to be the best hair type for extensions and is highly sought after.
It is a good idea to find out if your hair extensions are ethically sourced. Like all fair trade, this will mean that the hair was bought at a fair price. There have been incidents of poor women being exploited and having their hair bought for unfair prices.
Human hair extensions do require some maintenance. You will need a specialized hair brush which you will need to use twice a day, brushing from the roots to the tips. Hair extensions are prone to tangling. Your salon professional will also give you some treatment oil to use daily, promoting the health of your hair and the extensions. You will no longer be able to dye your hair at home and will need to have it done in the salon. Other than this, hair extensions can be treated the same as natural hair.

Hair extensions are a great way to change your look. Speak to your hairdresser about transforming your entire look today.
