Houston Hair Extensions
Synthetic vs 100% Human Hair Extensions
Women in Houston, like women in any other fashion forward city, love hair extensions. They are a great way to increase your hair’s natural volume and length. When properly applied, they look amazing and can blend almost perfectly with your natural hair. In fact, many of the celebrities, as well as people you pass on the street, have hair extensions but you would never know it… unless you asked them… or their stylist 🙂
Hair extensions are available as either synthetic or as real human hair. Synthetic hair products are generally a much cheaper alternative than human hair. They are also stiffer and can’t be used with heat from a flat or curling iron. Another drawback to synthetic hair is that it can not be colored. Real human hair products are typically the best alternative for the client that wants to add semi permanent volume and length to her everyday lifestyle.
Types of Hair Extensions
Clients who prefer real human hair extensions have a variety of options. Real human hair options are available with clip in, halo, top piece, sew in, tape in, fusion or micro link bonds. The clip in and halo style extensions are temporary solutions. People often add clip them for a special night or event and take them out prior to going to bed. Semi permanent options include sew in, micro link, tape in and fusion hair extensions. Bonded directly to the hair, these types of extensions feature for a natural look. A client may also style them to meet her ever changing schedule.
Most semi permanent options last three or four months and do require some maintenance. Clients should use appropriate “extension friendly” shampoos and conditioners with semi permanent solutions to make sure that the product does not compromise the bond. Lastly, clients should consult their stylist to make sure that she is a good candidate for semi permanent options. People with damaged, brittle or weak hair may experience some breakage due to the added weight on the hair.
