Beautiful Hairstyles with Hair Extensions and Hair Weaves
Long, silky, healthy hair can radiate beauty, fitness and youth. A change of hairstyle is often enough to make you look more sophisticated, younger or simply different.
Hair extensions are becoming an increasingly popular way of instantly getting that long beautiful hair some of us can only dream of!
Growing your hair long takes 5-6 years at an average of 1 cm per month!
Hair extensions can give you around 21 inches of thick hair in just a few hours!
There are two main types of hair extensions. Hair extensions can be made out of synthetic fibers and are referred to as synthetic hair extensions or out of human hair and referred to as human hair extensions.
Human hair extensions tend to be the preferred kind of hair extensions because they look and feel a lot more natural then the synthetic kind.
Also, heat cannot be applied to most synthetic fibers causing some inconvenience if a person needs to use some hair appliances.
The downside of human hair extensions is that are usually much more expensive then the synthetic ones!
Notwithstanding, there is no fixed price for human hair extensions because this differs according to the quality, style and length of extensions required.
Hair extensions that are untreated and uncolored usually cost more because they are more durable!Hair Weaves
A change of hairstyle is often enough to make you look more sophisticated, younger or simply different. Hair weaves are a good idea for those who fancy some braids, dreadlocks or simply a fuller head of hair and a different look!
Hair weaves are another form of hair extensions and can also be made out of synthetic or natural hair. There are three types of hair weaves:
(1)Bonded Hair Weave - This is the least durable kind of hair weave and only lasts 1 month until it would need to be replaced. This kind of hair weave gets glued to the scalp
(2)Braided Hair Weave - This is a 2 step procedure.
The natural hair is braided along the center of the scalp (under
the hair) and then the hair weave gets sown into the braids.
This type of hair weave normally lasts around 2 months.
(3)Fusion Hair Weave - This is the most lasting kind of hair weave, since it needs be changed every 3 months.
This procedure involves waxing the hair weave to the natural hair.
Both hair extensions and hair weaves require considerable maintenance. T
he hair need to be treated with gentle respect and cleaned and moisturized daily with a good conditioner.
Remember, that while natural hair gets the necessary oils and moisture from your scalp, hair extensions and hair weaves don’t!
Also, depending on the style and procedure for your hair extensions/hair weaves, you might also have to visit the hairdresser every 6 weeks to fix your hair extensions due to your natural hair re growth.
Whichever kind of hair extension you choose, always consult your hair specialist for advice, and pick the safest procedure. Finally, enjoy your beautiful hair!
