First, you will have to make sure that you wear natural hair extensions. «Most hair extensions are made from human hair. There are also synthetics, but not too many, since heat cannot be applied to them, and therefore the hair cannot be combed, ”explains curlyme hair.
Clip-on extensions: the best for their speed
You can apply them yourself in 10-15 minutes using toupee forceps to attach the hair band to your scalp. The cost of clip-in hair extensions can cost between 100 and 200 euros.
The sewn extensions: they are one of the oldest types
They are attached to the scalp by braiding the natural hair horizontally from ear to ear and then sewing the hair weft into the braid. On average, stitched extensions cost a minimum of 275 euros plus 60 euros for each sewn track.
Tape Extensions: A Hairstylist's Favorite
"The ribbons are thicker and give you a perfect image of the hair."
They are hair segments attached to a two-inch thick, double-sided keratin tape. The extensions are secured by placing the tape between the strands of your natural hair and cost as little as 200 euros for partial extensions or more if you have very thin hair.
Glue extensions: the most laborious
They are a bit more expensive due to the work involved in their application. They are applied by melting a bond of plastic keratin the size of a grain of rice around its natural strands. The process is sometimes described as basically the construction of a wig on the head, which can take up to three hours.
Halo extensions: they are the least invasive for the roots of your hair.
A transparent wire sits around the crown of the head like a halo. The lower half contains the wholesale hair vendors, while the upper half remains bare so it can be easily hidden under your own hair. Since it is not secured to any support, there is less weight pulling on your natural locks, and it is super easy to do yourself.
