Are you sick of the same hair style you have had for a long time? Or did you try different styles that never really worked for you because of your hair type? Do you have an issue with your hair thinning due to age, stress or other related issues as a result of which your hair does not have the volume and length you desire? If you are facing any of these issues, the best possible solution for you would be getting extensions, which is a popular trend in the world today.

Why is it so popular?

We mentioned above that it is a popular trend, which you would have noticed if you follow any celebrities or their fashion trends. Hair extensions can give your boring hair both length and volume. They come in a variety of colours and textures so that you don’t have to worry too much about finding the perfect match for you.

One of the most popular trends is keratin extensions, which are collected using a method that makes sure they tangle less, unlike synthetic extensions. High quality salons and hair dressers claim that these extensions are sourced from purely legal methods. Even though some extensions cannot be brushed over, most advanced technology used today allows for extensions that do not slide out, allowing you to brush them along with your normal hair. In fact, you should brush over them daily to make sure they don’t tangle or become clumpy. Another great advantage of these extensions is that you can style them like you style your natural hair, helping you obtain even a better look for special occasions. Thus you can use a blow dryer for your hair or use a curling iron or a straightening iron. You can even tie up your hair if your extensions are done properly, because if the bonds are correctly done they are not visible. If you don’t feel the need to style your hair or don’t have the time for it, you can simply wash your hair and shampoo it, along with your extensions. You can go about your daily activities such as swimming, with these extensions and they generally last up to six months.

A Word of Caution

While we are all for new looks and we encourage hair extensions, it is sometimes not the smartest choice if you cannot invest the time and money required for the process. Natural extensions are particularly expensive and both types require extensive care. Some have complained that these extensions have damaged their natural hair, which could happen especially owing to the method of attachment used for the extensions. You should also be careful of bald spots. In addition, use a soft pillow when sleeping and avoid tying it in tight ponytails so that your hair can move freely.
