Hair Extensions Are For Everyone

January 2, 2009 by · Leave a Comment 

Have you always wanted long, beautiful hair? It’s true that people usually want what they don’t have, and if you have short hair, you may often crave long luscious locks. Waiting for your hair to grow out is not a very good option. It will take years for your hair to grow out, and by the time your hair reaches the length that you want, you may have changed your mind and no longer want long hair. And more often than not, the hair will become damaged and unhealthy while you’re waiting for it to grow.

But there is an easier way. You can always opt for hair extensions as an easy alternative to create your beautiful look. Some women mistakenly think that hair extensions are only for the rich and famous or celebrities and that normal people shouldn’t or can’t have them. This is the totally wrong way to think. There is absolutely no reason that you shouldn’t have hair extensions if you want them.

Price is no longer the barrier that it used to be as hair extensions are much more affordable now than they used to be and there are many different options for all budgets. If you want to save even more money, you can have a friend put your extensions in for you instead of opting for an expensive salon. There are many different types of hair extensions that are simple enough for anyone to put in on their own.

One of the common misconceptions about hair extensions is that they look fake and everybody will know that you are wearing them. Well of course your close friends will know that you have hair extensions because overnight you will have much longer hair. But for others, no one will be any the wiser about your extensions because they are made very well now and do not look fake at all. There are a wide variety of colors to choose from, you will be able to match your hair type very closely for an excellent match. Choosing extensions made with human hair will also help to have them looking very natural and will make it easier for you to care for them as well and style them.

Hair extensions can be treated like your normal hair. You can wash them, and style them normally with your hair straightener, curling iron and hair dryer without fear of damaging your look. It is recommended that you take a bit more care in washing your hair, and use a gentle shampoo, avoiding the connections where they attach to your own hair, but other than that, you should be able to treat your hair as you normally would.

Don’t think that you have to wear your hair extremely long just because you have extensions. Many women are under the impression that they will have hair down to their rear end if tey get extensions and that’s not always true. If that’s the length that you want, than you can go right ahead, but otherwise you can cut your hair and have your stylist shape it however you would like.

Hair extensions are not just for the rich and famous anymore. With a wide variety available, anyone can have that long, gorgeous movie star look.

It’s happened to almost everyone at some point. You’re flipping through a magazine when you come across a picture of a celebrity sporting a beautiful, flowing mane of hair. Sure, her hair is gorgeous but didn’t you just see a picture of her last week with much shorter hair? Is there some sort of magical shampoo that you can use to increase hair growth that quickly? How do they do it?

 That’s easy. Those instant gorgeous flowing locks are achieved by using hair extensions.

With these extensions, you simply thread your hair through the loop, much as you would if you were threading a needle and then you pull gently on the loop until the ends come off and the ring is close to the head. You simply crimp down on the ring to lock the extension in place, and you have instant hair. Of course you repeat the process adding extensions until you have achieved the desired look.

 If you want to create your look by yourself, forget about the hair extensions that you have to glue or sew in and look for some easier alternatives. Besides the easy loop extensions, another popular type of hair extensions that are easy to use are the clip in extensions. These extensions come in sections that are easy to apply using clips. The clip in styles are also easy to remove so if you want to change your look more frequently, this is a good option for you.

 When it comes to hair extensions you can treat them just as you would treat your regular hair. That means that you don’t have to be afraid to wash your hair, or style it. Yes, because they are made of 100% human hair, you don’t have to be afraid to blow dry your hair, or use hair straighteners on them. It is recommended however that you use quality hair styling tools when you style any hair, especially extensions. You want your hair extensions to last a long time and continue to look good, so using hair straighteners and hair dryers that are made from ceramic components and utilize tourmaline is a good idea.

 Long beautiful hair is no longer only available to the rich or celebrity stars. Everyone can enjoy the amazing difference that hair extensions create. And with a wide variety of colors available, you can customize your look to be the perfect one for you. Hair extensions are completely style able, so your stylist can even cut them to add layers around your face, or any other look that suits you.

History of Hair Extensions

June 16, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Believe it or not but hair extensions go as far back as the Egyptian days. They were worn by both genders for cosmetic adornment. In addition to cosmetic vanity, wigs served another purpose as well, to avoid infection of head lice. Egyptian men shaved their head but wore wigs to protect them from the different elements.

Fake hair for women became frowned upon after 1800 and women wore hair more naturally. In the early 20th Century Edwardian women wore false hair additions to create the pompadour hairstyle, shown below.

Fake hair returned once again with the elaborate “Appollo Knots” of the Romantic era, shown below.

Later human hair additions were used so extensively in the mid Victorian era that 51,816 kgs of fake human hair were sold in France in 1871 and 102,900 kgs in 1873.

By the 1920′s less hair rather than more was considered “in”. In the 1940′s long natural hair like that of Lauren Bacall was one of the few remaining luxuries a woman could indulge in.

Many eons later Asian countries learned to process and manufacture hair extensions to be sold all over the world. Like now most of the wigs and hair extensions were made of human hair, the main difference was the way they were worn by each individual. Wigs were coated ith beeswax or plant resin to adhere to the scalp. Now, we have fusion techniques, clip on hair extensions and strand bond weaving, back in the day, they were fastened with a thread to the wearer’s natural hair.

Extensions were worn mostly by the very wealthy who could afford the cost and sit still for about 12 to 15 hours . Others followed when they saw what was possible when hair extensions were applied in a glamorous way. In particular black women used hair extensions to improve upon hair texture that some found difficult to tame. It became common to see pop singers sport a wide range of looks that centred around hair extensions.

So you see we have come a very very long way with what we can do with actual human hair. It’s quite amazing knowing that the Ancient Egyptians were doing it long before we even knew what they were. Till next time Good Luck,

Fusion Hair Extensions

June 13, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Fusion hair extensions is a method used to place hair extensions in hair. There are different ways of fusing the hair, each method can offer different advantages and disadvantages.

Hair extensions can be attached to your head in many different ways, including gluing, tubing, sewing, and clipping on. Different methods have different advantages. The method you choose will depend on many factors: your hair, your lifestyle, your budget, and your needs, for starters. If you are looking for a long-lasting, natural-looking hair extension, though, consider one of the fusion methods.

Hot fusion iron.

Fusion hair extensions can be applied in two different ways. Hot fusion and cold fusion. The application of the hot fusion has its advantages and disadvantages. Hot fusion can usually allow the hair extensions to last up to 4 months.

Cold fusion is a new method that is gentler on your hair. As this method uses no heat, it is good for fine or thin hair. The polymer offers more flexibility than hot-glue, and results in a more natural-feeling of the hair extensions. For cold fusion hair extensions, many hairdressers use SoCap extensions and a clear bond. These extensions can last up to six months.
