Top 3 Popular hair extensions types
“Oh God, please give me long and flowing hair when I open my eyes.” How many people have made same prayer before God? Some people can grow up long hair in a short period like several months, but for a part of people, they may count a very long time. But we all know, we can’t grow up long hair within a few hours. However, there is a way you can get beautiful long hair soon and won’t go through the trouble of growing it yourself. That is, Hair Extensions.
There are many types of hair extensions on the market, so choosing a hair extension method that suits you can be overwhelming. There are several factors to consider before choosing a method that works best for you. In this blog, I will introduce the top 3 popular types of hair extensions, and their pros and cons.
As a temporary hair extension method, clip in hair extensions is applied using small pressure sensitive clips with silicon. If you don’t want to wear your hair extension on a daily basis or just wear it for some special occasions, clip in hair extensions is a better option for you. Because it can be installed and removed easily by yourselves within minutes, no need to go to a professional hairdresser. Also it allows you to change hair color and styles often. However, this type hair extension must be removed before bedtime so as not to damage your own hair.
Keratin U-tip bonds are attached to the hair using a heating tool. Hairdresser uses a heating tool to melt the keratin glue, where your own hair is placed and sealed between the melt U-tip keratin. In other words, you cannot install it by yourselves. This type is the most durable hair extensions which can last up to 6 months with proper maintenance. What’s more, after a perfect application, the hair extensions on your head can look like your own nature hair. On the other side, hot fusion requires heat to install hair extensions, which can not only be tough on the hairdresser’s hands but lead to your hair damage and breakage if not applied properly.
I tip hair extensions, also known as cold fusion extensions. The install method is quite similar to the hot fusion method. The only difference is that it comes pre-tipped with a keratin based polymer that needs to be attached at the root of your hair. Though you need a special tool to do so, it does not require any heat application. So I tip extensions are very popular for people who want no-heating application to their hair, also it can last up to 6 months. In contrast, If beads or locks are not placed appropriately, they can be visible and will slip more easily than any other methods.
Now that you’ve known all the pros and cons of different types’ hair extensions, I believe you’ll make a well-informed choice. I can’t tell you what’s the best choice for you? Well, it depends on your particular needs and goals, as well as your nature hairstyles. Also you can consult with your hairdresser, but remember, no one know your hair better than you.
