What are 12 inch human hair extensions?
Hair extensions are methods that help add length and volume to your natural hair. If someday you are fed up with your current hairstyle and want new hair, choose hair extensions. The application of hair extensions is convenient as it helps you quickly achieve a new looking without going to any hair salon.
12 inch human hair extension describes the hair extension which is 12 inch in length and made of human hair. The name of this method clearly tells us about the origin of the hair. We need to make it clear as there are different origins for hair extensions. Two main types are human hair and synthetic hair.
About the difference between human hair and synthetic hair
A lot of people experience a hard time deciding whether to buy human hair or synthetic hair. If you are in the same situation, we are going to let you in on the secrets of each and show you the pros as well as cons of both origins of the hair.
Human hair extensions
Like its own name, human hair extension refers to the hair extension that is made from human hair. It is normally the hair collected from donors. In APO hair, we use 100% Vietnamese remy hair to make all types of hair extensions. When it comes to remy hair, it means that all the cuticles (the outer layer of the hair) are intact. This allows you to achieve the most beautiful, silky hairstyles. Because it is human hair, you can comfortably curl, straighten, dye or style hair extensions like you are styling your natural hair.
Synthetic hair extensions
On the other hand, synthetic hair extension refers to the method in which the hair is made of synthetic fibers to imitate human hair. Often, hair from synthetic fibers is sensitive to the sun or high temperatures. That’s why it is much more difficult if you want to style, dye or curl the hair extensions that are made from synthetic fiber. At high temperatures, synthetic hair can melt, leading to bad effects on your hair. Also, it’s hard to style and blend with your natural hair.
Besides, in the hair market today, you can expect to pay from 60 to 80 USD for synthetic hair extensions, and from 100 to 150 USD for human hair extensions. This shows that synthetic hair is sold at cheaper prices. On the other hands, human hair is at a little bit higher prices. However, the quality of the two types, as mentioned above, are different. Depending on your own needs, you will choose the suitable type of hair extensions. In general, extensions from human hair can last up to a year or longer if they are properly cared for while synthetic hair can’t have the same lifespan as human hair extensions.
Why should you choose APO’s hair extensions?
Made of 100% human Remy hair
12 inch of hair in our collection is, no doubt, made of 100% Vietnamese Remy hair. In the production, we completely say No with chemical or synthetic hair. That’s why you don’t need to worry about the quality of hair products we provide.
Remy hair means all hair cuticles remain and face the same direction. That will prevent the hair from tangling or shedding, ensuring that your hair will always be silky and smooth.
Various in types
Coming to APO’ stock, you will realize that there are many different methods of 12 inch human hair extensions. Depending on your own needs, you can choose the one which is suitable for your present hairstyle. We have:
Firstly is sew-in hair extension: Our staff spends a lot of time and skills on weaving all the hair strands in the same bundle into one long line. This is called a weave. Women usually apply the weaving method to sew the weave into their natural hair. This method ensures that 12 inch weaves hairstyles will not easily fall out of your hair as they have been firmly sewn into your natural locks.
One recommendation for you is that weave hair better for thick hair than thin hair. You should also not make too tight braids as this can put pressure on your scalp or even damage your natural hair.
Secondly, we want to tell you about 12 inch tape in hair extensions. Tape hair is famous for its easy and quick application. When you don’t need to use hair extensions, you can remove the tape and save the hair for other times using. For the next time of use, you only need to get a new piece of tape, attach it to the hair extensions and apply like the first time. It would be best if you can have a tape remover and a tape roll.
Thirdly, we focus on clip in hair. If you get used to hair extensions, you will know for sure that clip in hair extensions is the least permanent method of hair extensions, right? You can put it on and then take it off any time you like. You can use 12 clip in extensions daily, which is really convenient. However, make sure that you clip the right way. Don’t make it too loose so the hair can fall out of your head. It doesn’t mean that you have to make it tightly. Too tight application can lead to pressure on your scalp, which is not a good thing. Here, you should know how to apply it properly so that there will be no damages to your 12 inch natural hair as well as your scalp.
Next is keratin hair extension. In APO hair’s collection, we have four distinct types of hair extensions which are flat tip hair, U tip hair, V tip hair and I tip hair. As you can see, the difference among these types of hair lies in the shape of the tip. However, don’t worry about our hair quality as all types of keratin hair extensions in our stock are made of high-quality keratin.
How do I care for my hair 12 inch human hair extensions?
It’s important that you build a good routine to take care of your 12 inch hair extensions. Because of the fact that the products we provide are from 100% Vietnamese remy hair, you can style and wash them just like your natural hair. However, one thing you should always keep in mind is that the more you wash the hair or styling it, the shorter its lifespan will be. That’s why keep washing and using heat styling tools to a minimum.
Can I swim or play sports with my 12 inch hair extensions?
Depending on the type of hair extensions you use, you can determine if it is possible to swim or paly sports with it. With some typical hair extension method such as clip in hair extensions, we highly recommend that you should not wear them while swimming or taking a shower (especially getting them into the water). If you really want to swim with hair extensions, remember to tie your hair up or use a swim cap so that the hair will not get wet. Swimming with your clip in hair extensions may lead to hair tangling, which is not an exciting experience.
You can completely play sports why applying hair extensions. However, the best thing is to avoid doing any physical activity that could lead to excessive sweat. We believe that you know your sweat is salty, which can dry out your hair extensions. This may result in additional matting or tangling, leading to the damages of the hair extensions. It’s really necessary that we minimize hair extensions’ exposure to sweat.
