Almost everyone I know has tried hair extensions at some point.
As a novice to hair extensions and beauty in general, as of a few years ago, I was astounded to find out that most of my friends used false hair pieces. This seemed so weird to me. I get home and remove my stockings and makeup the way they remove their hair at night. Odd as it may have seemed, I was intrigued. How high maintenance are these lustrous locks and how much does one pay to have a full mane? This was just the beginning; I had lots of questions. I researched the different types of hair extensions and eventually gave them a try myself.
Here’s what I found:
Hair Extension Facts
- Hair extensions can be applied if your hair is as little as three inches long.
- You should choose hair extensions based on how they are applied/removed, hair type, weight, synthetic vs. real human hair, budget, and maintenance.
- Extensions can be used to add length and or volume.
- There are options that grow with hair and have to be removed and replaced after a few months or longer, as well as clip in options that are removable after a single use.
