Getting great hair quickly? It seems too good to be true, but it is possible with hair extensions! Because extensions are a big investment, you always want to know what you want before you get them. Here are three things you need to know before you get extensions!
- Your desired length
It is always important to be realistic about the length of hair you want. Start with your current hair length and then go from there to determine how long you would want the extensions to be. Be sure to integrate your current length so that you don’t accidentally go too long with them. Determine this before your appointment so you know exactly what you want!
2. Understanding the systems
After deciding what length you would like your extensions to be, you will need to determine what type of extensions you will want. We offer two types- tape-in and fusion. For tape in hair extensions, the hair lasts about six to eight months with maintenance appointments about every six weeks. The process of putting these extensions in takes about two hours, although this can vary. Fusion extensions use a different application method and connect the extensions to your hairline. This process takes a much longer time than tape-ins, but you will need less maintenance with these extensions. They last about three to six months without a need for touch-ups in between. The extensions will be redone when you are ready for a new set!
3. Taking care of your extensions
It is important to note that you will need to take care of your extensions so they can stay looking great! You want to avoid certain products on your hair extensions. Be sure to use sulfate-free and alcohol-free products because they can strip the hair of its moisture and leave it prone to tangling. Avoid using sticky hair products such as hairspray and hair gel as well because these can clog up your extensions. Also, remember to brush your hair slowly and carefully as this will increase its lifespan.
