Important Questions to Ask about Hair Extensions

Hair extensions can improve your appearance, but there are more than a few misconceptions about them out there. If you're going to a salon to get hair extensions, you need to keep in mind some important questions.

  • Should I use human or synthetic hair?
    Human hair is expensive but can be styled more easily and tends to look natural. Synthetic hair is cheaper but less durable. It is also more likely than human hair to become tangled and frizzy; in addition, some people can have allergic reactions to synthetic hair. However, synthetic extensions don't weigh as much, putting less strain on your real hair.

  • Will the extensions damage my hair?
    Unlike wigs, extensions can possibly cause damage. An experienced stylist is less likely to make serious mistakes. People with thinning hair or certain medical conditions concerning their hair may not be good candidates for extensions; they may be advised to try wigs instead. Tightly braided hair weaves may be painful to wear. To avoid damage, be sure your stylist advises you on the proper way to brush and wash your extensions. Also, extensions can damage your hair if you fail to have them removed within a certain time frame.

  • Which method of attachment should be used?
    Fusion hair extensions, attached with adhesives and a heating appliance, are the most popular today, and if properly maintained can last up to six months. Those who prefer a less permanent and less expensive method may opt to use clips to attach their extensions.

  • How much will maintenance visits cost?
    When considering costs, keep in mind that you will have to pay for maintenance visits. Your hair is constantly growing and shedding strands, which causes problems for your weave or extensions. You can expect to return to your stylist every month or two to correct loosening clips and similar problems.
