But there are too many types of hair extensions, sometimes you may hesitate to choose, we got in touch with the hair extension experts to get the lowdown on everything you need to know before you take the plunge. Consider your hair extension questions answered.

First of all you need to know the raw materials of hair:

Human Hair Versus Synthetic Hair

When it comes to purchasing hair, you get what you pay for. The price will vary greatly based on the quality of the hair, as well as the desired quantity and length.

virgin hair and remy hair
Virgin (never-before-processed)human hair is the highest quality, The hair cuticle is preserved, instead of stripped, and all the hairs run in the same direction, maintaining that natural soft, silky texture.

Remy human hair is the high grade of real human hair, which is a preferred choice for hair extensions because it achieves the most natural look and can be styled and washed just like your own hair.

Synthetic hair is much cheaper but won't blend or style the way human hair does. It can't always withstand heat styling and tangles easily.

Do hair extensions damage your hair?

The type and application methods matter when it comes to hair extensions. Some more permanent hair extensions can cause damage due to the bonding, gluing, and pulling on the hair. Clip in hair extensions is the least damaging option as they are simply clipped into your hair like any regular hair clip. 

How to choose matching colors?

 It's important to match the color and texture of the hair extensions with your natural hair, The most accurate way is to color match with the ends of your locks, not the roots, If the color match is off, your extensions will be very obvious, The color of the hair will change under different light, so it is correct to contrast the hair color under natural light.

the difference between i tip hair and u tip hair

Pre-bonded hair extensions are pieces of real human hair, that have a bonding agent pre-applied at one tip. There are several types of these hair extensions, such as stick/I tipnail/U tip, flat tip and nano tip. They are much better and more gentle to use on your own natural hairs than other hair extensions.
During the manufacturing process, bonding glue is placed at one end of the extension. A hair stylist attaches the glued tip of the extension to a client's hair with a professional heat connector clamp. This clamp resembles a thin hair straightening tool and has a built in lip to place the glue tip into. The hair stylist squeezes the top and bottom sections of the heat connector clamp together and applies pressure to melt the glue, bonding the client's natural hair to the extension.
