Out there in the big wide world are various types of great looking hair extensions, and all can be applied to different sorts of hair. A lot depends on how well the extensions are cared for, with the bonded extension type normally lasting the longest. Let’s take a look at some:
- What are known as sewn hair extensions, AKA “weaves” are popular, as are clip-in hair extensions which are a wonderful method of having a temporary change in hair style.
- Also, “Tube extensions”, come in both metal or plastic, and work the best for people with thicker hair
- Professional hair extensions, in single strands or wefts, are usually fastened with either protein or glue.
- Protein bonded extensions can last for about eight months and use what is known as keratin bonds or ultrasonic vibrations to remain secured.
- Because there is no heat involved, it is less harmful to hair than other kinds, and the keratin bond will not melt if heat styling is utilised.
Micro Beading and Clip in Extensions
Micro beading hair extensions are achieved via the use of strands or small wefts. Real hair beneath the crown is braided firmly to the head, and hair extensions are afterwards fastened to the braid. This approach uses no heat or glue and is viewed as being somewhat superior, and is a lot less harmful than glue bonds or plastic tubing if they are later on taken out by expert hair stylists.
The braid and extensions are normally safe for many months whilst hair is not under any unnecessary duress. As for the well-known clip in extensions in Perth, these are slightly easier to fit into place and remove, and provide the wearer with some extra volume, length, or even bangs to a current hair style.
Tube Extensions for Differing Hair Types
- What are known as “bonded extensions” make use of a special type of glue that is either already in place on the extension or applied to it. After an extension is put into place on the hair, the adherent is heated up and then left to cool, which seals them in place.
- Metal tube extensions are created by the threading of tubes into current hair and then threading hair extensions into the tubes. When they are set in place, specialised clamps are fitted to flatten down the metal, which then keeps the extension in its place.
- Plastic tubing is also put into usage, and is employed in the same manner, except that heating is employed to shrink the tubes down to about half of their size, which then makes the extensions remain in place. Due to size, extensions like these, work the best on people with medium to thick hair. Those with thinner hair, should not attempt this method because it is often hard to conceal the extensions.
