Today, it is not just celebrities that are getting hair extensions. Hair extensions used to seem so fake to me, but now, as I have grown up and am no longer a teenager, the idea does not sound all that bad. Like I said, celebrities are not the only ones getting these done – normal people like you and I are too. Do you know that girl you walked past that had beautiful hair? That could have been extensions. Below, I am going to give you 7 things you should know before getting hair extensions …
7. Not Every Stylist Has Experience with This
I have come across a couple of stylists that did not have any experience with getting hair extensions. Before you get hair extensions, you should definitely check and see if the stylist has professional experience. You don’t want to become their experiment.
6. Damage Hair
Whoever tells you that extensions are not going to damage your hair at all – they are only lying to you. Extensions can damage your hair. It is important that you go to those follow up appointments and take proper care of the extensions. If they are left in for too long of a time, it is going to become one big old knot.
5. Ways to Attach the Hair
There are various ways that the extensions could be attached in your hair and it is important that you familiarize yourself with the process. One of the best ways would be to use a rubber bond system. This is safe and is easy to remove. You remove it by using a removing liquid. When you put the removing liquid on it, the rubber bond is going to turn into a power and that will allow you to comb out the extension.
When the extensions are properly applied, they can be dyed, washed, straightened and curled – just like your normal hair. If you take good care of them, then they can last for a couple of months.
3. Best Hair Extensions
One of the best types of natural hair extensions would be Remy hair. You can find Remy hair at many salons. This is the best and most beautiful hair from India. It has durability, is stronger than normal hair and is very soft.
2. Ask for Pictures
When you go to a stylist, ask them to show you some pictures of their previous work. Good stylists will be able to show you some before and after pictures of what they have done in the past.
1. A Guarantee
You should go to someone that is offering you some type of guarantee. For example, if you are not happy with your experience, some salons offer at least one free visit.
There you have 8 things you should know before getting hair extensions. When you do it right, extensions can be beautiful. I have looked at some of the before and after pictures and really, they do not seem like a bad idea. In fact, I have noticed a lot of people in this day and age are getting these done.
