When people talk about types of synthetic and real hair extension they automatically think of Hollywood glamor and a picture of Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, Mariah Carey or some other equally famous celebrity.
Vivid images such as these are usually enough to convince us to try out products or services without substantial information on it. These are information that can better help us decide if the outcome of having a real hair extension is worth not just the price but all the effort we need to expend on it.
Prior to finally committing to real hair extension let us first consider factors that need to be dealt with before the application and conditions that need to be met afterwards. A real hair extension is made of natural human hair; these are best suited for purposes of lengthening and or thickening existing hair. Synthetic hair extensions on the other hand are best for braids, dreadlocks and to add unique coloring for a bolder effect. One of the factors we must consider before the procedure is your goal or what you want to achieve with it. For example do you want to create more volume, length or do you have some other reason for having extensions added. Talking about it with the specialist will help you better choose what type of human hair extension you need.
Another factor to consider is your hair type. The color, texture and cut of your hair have to be able to support the look you wish to achieve. If the condition of your hair will not be able to successfully realize your goal then adjustments have to be made and a new or modified look agreed upon. Your lifestyle must also come into play, how much time you have on a daily basis to style and care for it as well as your budget not just for the initial cost but for the needed touchups on it after a couple of weeks or 2 months. After the process of attaching the extensions there are also topics that you need to discuss with your hair specialist. Remember to ask him or her to instruct you on the care needed for the extensions. How to shampoo, how often, how to style so that the extensions will not fall off or look shabby are some of the basics you need to master.
One must also be aware of products like a shampoo or conditioner that is formulated for human hair extensions or at the very least the kind to avoid. Lastly, do note what kinds of equipment you can and cannot use when you have extensions like irons, brushes and hair dryers.
So take note of what we have discussed and enjoy your extensions.
