As a self taught braider, I wish I had thick long hair. Though my hair is now longer to make braids of, it's still needs volume to incorporate the braids that I am aiming for. Sometimes I hate it when the braids that I am making are so easy but it will not look the way I want it to be because of my thin hair. I never really tried any supplements or treatments that will help have a thick hair. I just don't want to risk anything that I am taking in because I am still breastfeeding.
Good thing I heard about Flaired Hair Extensions. I'd never really tried any hair extensions before but I am really eager to try it especially that I am into braiding and different hair styling.
Here are some of my braids that I did with my hair. It looks good yeah but I think if I add hair extensions it will look way better. It can also add volume and length to my hair.
So here is a complete guide from Flaired Hair Extensions on how to finally have that longer, fuller hair.
1. Choose your hair
There are three types of hair used for hair extensions: synthetic hair, animal hair, and human hair. Synthetic hair is made of colored plastic strands which make for good wigs. Only certain types of synthetic hair can only withstand a certain heat before it burns out. Animal hair is much coarser and thicker than human hair so it is not advisable to use it for finer or thinner hair (also, it’s quite icky!)
The best hair type is of course human hair especially if you want a natural look or a seamless blend between your hair and the extensions. Human hair allows you to treat the extensions like you own – you can heat style, color, perm, straighten or trim it to your taste.
2. Choose your hair extensions attachment
You can braid, glue, sew, press and clip hair extensions to your hair or scalp in order for it to stay. One of the common ways to attach hair extensions is via snipping in micro-rings with hair strands, however, it can be uncomfortable as you have to adjust the way you wash and brush your hair.
One of the easiest and fastest attachment method is via one piece clip-on hair extensions. It allows you to quickly wear or remove hair extensions in a snap and by yourself, without need of extra tools. What differentiates “one piece” from multi-piece clip-ons is that you don’t need to put too many clips on your scalp – just one piece gives you a full head look.
3. Choose your hair extensions thickness
Once you have chosen to buy hair extensions, you may be faced with two choices – double drawn or single drawn hair extensions? Single drawn hair extensions typically have a V-shaped quality because most of the hair strands do not reach their prescribed length. For example, if you order 20 inches of hair extensions, only about 10% of those strands actually reach 20 inches and the rest are much shorter. On the other hand, double drawn hair undergoes a second process of selection where shorter hairs are removed by hand so that it has a solid length from root to tip.
That’s the basic information you need before getting your own hair extensions! Once you know these about hair types, attachment types and the difference between single and double drawn hair, you will be more apt to inquire with your provider on what products best fit your fashion and lifestyle.
Hair extensions are how celebrities and models can afford to have their natural short ‘do one day and glamorous longer locks the next. It’s no longer a secret that hair extensions make for a great beauty enhancer. Be sure to keep this guide on hand the moment you decide to avail of your own hair extensions!
