Dear God, please grant me a miracle and have long, luxurious hair by dawn! We’ve all got utterly enthralled by long hair at some point. Regardless of the length of your hair right now, hair extensions can help you realize your dream of waking up with long locks. Hair integrations is another name for hair extensions. They are applied to increase one’s hair’s length and volume. They can get created from synthetic or natural hair. Since the cuticle of the natural hair gets retained, and all the hair runs in one direction, virgin natural hair extensions are of the highest quality (and cost, of course), giving them the most realistic appearance. Synthetic lace hair extensions are a less expensive option if money is short.
Let’s look at the many types of hair extension techniques now that we have cleared things up.
- Tape-In Hair Extensions
Tape-in extensions are what you need if you want hair extensions that are simple to apply in a few hours. These extensions get offered in wefts that can range in length from 1.5 to 8 inches. Polyurethane tape tabs that are double- or single-sided and have been custom-cut for each weft get included. In essence, these extensions are sandwich and holding your hair in place.
- Micro Ring Hair Extensions
Small bundles of hair threaded through discrete areas of your natural hair make up micro ring hair extensions. The extension is then held in place by a metal bead that is clamped around it using a pair of pliers. The micro loop extensions, which come pre-attached with a loop and bead, are a more practical variation of these extensions. Therefore, they can get attached without a loop tool.
The horizontal cornrow in your hair is made into a weave using the weaving procedure, and the hair extension is then sewn into the weave using a needle and cotton thread. These are thus “woven” through your hair in a very literal sense. African women wear weaves because they have the thick hair required to hide the lace hair extensions from view.
- Clip-In Hair Extensions
The ideal choice for anyone who desires longer hair in a matter of minutes is clip-in hair extensions. They are hair wefts that have clips attached to the top of them. Simply clip them into place at the base of your hair. They come in sizes between 2 and 8 inches.
- Hot Fusion Hair Extensions
Now, hot fusion is a technique that is complex and requires a qualified expert. The process begins with a silicone-lined keratin U-tip bond linked to the extension. After that, a heating tool gets used to attach the extension to the root of your hair. Your hair is essentially protected from heat harm by the silicone lining.
- Cold Fusion Hair Extension
The hot fusion procedure and cold fusion hair extensions are pretty similar. The main distinction is that it is pre-tipped with a polymer made of keratin that must get bonded to the hair’s root. It doesn’t need to be heated up, but you do need a particular instrument to do it.
