Weaves are a popular, versatile method of extending your hair. The natural hair is braided into cornrows before the weave is sewn on. Weaves help to add volume and length to hair, and also encourage hair growth. It is recommended that a qualified hairdresser is appointed to install your weave. Weaves come in many different colours and textures, with popular options including straight, wavy, curly, and deep-curl weaves. The main disadvantage of a weave is the fact that when they are sewn too tightly, they may cause strain on your scalp and hair loss. Weaves should be installed for a maximum of two months. Past this point, your natural hair will start to grow over the weft and cause matting.
Clip-on hair extensions are popular because they are swift, easy, and flexible. They instantly add length and volume to hair without the need to spend time and money in a salon. Clip-on extensions are also an attractive alternative to sewing weaves, which are problematic for some people. Unlike sewing weaves, clip-on extensions may be installed once hair has been permed. Clip-on extensions come in a variety of sizes, allowing users to personalise their look and create many different styles.
These hair extensions are bonded to your natural hair using various forms of adhesive, including keratin, glue, and plant- and petroleum-based adhesives. An application machine is typically used to soften the bond, while other methods utilise glue guns. The benefit of fusion extensions is how discreet and natural the extension looks. Plus, the fusion will last for at least six months and is simple to maintain when you follow the correct guidelines. The drawback of fusion extensions is that, in cases where they are not removed by a trained technician, there is a risk of damaging your natural hair. Fusion extensions that are applied via a glue gun are time-consuming and messy. It may take up to four hours to apply bonding.
TAPE HAIR EXTENSIONS
These extensions are applied swiftly and effortlessly, and typically last between 6-12 weeks. The pre-tape weft is usually sandwiched on either side of your natural hair. Tape extensions are easy to maintain and may be washed and styled alongside your natural hair. The disadvantage of tape hair extensions is that the tape is not clear. As a result, it may be seen through the hair..
Micro-link hair extensions are looped through the natural hair before being clamped on using pliers and a metal bead. The micro-beads may simply be moved up when they slip down the hair shaft, making maintenance and styling a cost-effective process. The disadvantage of micro-link extensions is that it is possible to damage your hair when heat is applied to the metal rings.
