November 19, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

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. You may think that hair extensions make your hair look fake or over processed, but those were the extensions of the past. Hair extensions now have been designed to look more like real hair than ever before. And they’re also easier than ever to put in, so you no longer need to be a celebrity to enjoy the instant luscious look of long hair overnight.

 There are a few different types of hair extensions; one of the easiest new types is the loop system. 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. The options are endless when you have long hair to play with.

If you want straight sexy hair and were not born with a smooth mane then you will need to use a hair straightening iron to get the frizz and curl out of your hair and straighten it out. Getting a good quality professional hair straightener will make all the difference in the world in the success you will have straightening your hair. Cheap drugstore hair straighteners are using made with inferior materials, which are no good for your hair, and they will leave it dried and damaged especially with repeated styling.

Professional hair straighteners are made with higher quality materials such as ceramic and tourmaline to ensure your hair will remain healthy and vibrant even when the hair iron is used frequently to remove the curl from your tresses. These materials use ionic technology to help infuse your hair with negative ions, which will help it retain its own natural moisture. This will make your hair more resistant to drying out leaving it to be healthy and shiny. Professional hair irons also include variable temperature controls which allow you the control over how much heat to apply to your hair to straighten it. Those with thicker hair will need a higher heat than those with thin or very dry locks.
