Hair extensions are a great way to rock different styles, without having to commit to a certain look for too long, whether it's adding extra volume, length, or even trendy bangs. Hair extensions are usually keratin tips, clipped, glued, or sewn on natural hair by incorporating additional human or synthetic hair.
Basically, extensions are made in two different ways: with real human hair or with synthetic materials that are made to emulate real hair. It’s not easy to choose because each has its benefits and drawbacks.
Human Hair Extensions and Synthetic Hair Extensions
Human hair extensions
Human hair extensions have a natural look and feel. They also bring a certain shine and movement that's rather difficult to recreate in synthetic hair. Plus, because they are real hair, human hair extensions are easy to cut, style and blend with your own current hairstyle. So how about the downside? Human hair extensions are quite expensive, costing anywhere from $300 for partial hair extensions to add fullness, to $4,000 for full extensions that add both length and volume for your current hair.
Synthetic hair extensions
Synthetic hair extensions, on the other hand, can be a more affordable option that usually costs between $50 and $100. With advances in technology, synthetic hair has become more popular in recent years, with newer options made with fibers that make us feel more like real hair. One great thing about synthetic extensions is that most can be worn out of the box. Plus, they hold up in bad weather because they don't frizz as natural hair does. However, because synthetic extensions have strong fibers, they are less versatile than human hair and need to take more effort to change curl patterns. They also can’t last as long as human hair that typically requires replacement every 3-6 months.

How Long Is 8 Inches Hair?
The length of 8 inch long hair extensions is defined when they are maximumly straightened. 8 inch hair is not long and just about 20 centimeters. Therefore it is a suitable choice for short hairstyles.

How To Care For Your 8 Inch Hair Extensions
With 8 inch hair extensions or any other types of hair extensions, to ensure you will be able to enjoy them as long as possible, we recommend keeping the appointments scheduled with your hairdresser. If you have additional questions or requests, your hairdresser will be glad to assist you. Proper hair care is important to enjoy your 8 inch hair extensions for a long time.
Wash your 8 inch hair extensions very thoroughly, preferably twice a week. When doing so, remember to be as gentle on the bonds as possible. We therefore, recommend never washing your hair with your head down but instead keep your head up. This is easiest in the shower or at your salon
Squeeze your hair, do not rub. Then properly arrange the damp strands and carefully brush with a qualified brush. When blow-drying, remember to start at the root and the bonds, then the shaft and tips. We also suggest slightly drying the bonds when allowing your hair to air dry.
Brushing And Combing Hair
To ensure you can gently brush and combine, we recommend arranging your hair daily. To do so, be sure to place your fingers between the fusion and the scalp and run through your hair from roots down. Your hairdresser will gladly show you the correct technique! Please, remember to never brush your hair completely wet, only whilst damp or semi-dry! Wavy hair should only be brushed after washing, because, you know, the curls may become frizzy from frequent brushing. You can use a hair pick or your own fingers for your morning hair routine and slightly dampen the genuine hair strands and scrunch up curls. About straight hair, it should be combed thoroughly morning and night. When doing that, don’t forget to hold on to the genuine hair strands at the root and brush carefully, without tugging, from the tips to the root.
Sports, On Holiday
Since your 8 inch hair extensions act exactly the same as your own hair, you are not limited during your free time.

Types of 8 inch hair extensions you can get
There are a vast number of ways to fit hair extensions but the main three categories are:
Temporary (take in and out each day or week)
Temporary methods are a type of hair extensions that includes clip-in pieces, wefts and weaves where large pieces of hair are added.
Temporary methods are great choices for occasional wear and are usually used by those who like their own hair but just want to enhance their look for the weekend, or for a special event such as parties, holidays, dates.
Semi-Permanent (worn for 6-8 weeks)
Semi-permanent hair extensions methods include tape-in pieces that last around 6-8 weeks. These are smaller sections than clip-ins and some new Tape extensions techniques are almost completely undetectable when hair is down or worn up.
Permanent (worn continuously, for many months)
Permanent hair extensions methods are strand-by-strand meaning many small attachments are added to your natural hair. For example, they include micro rings or micro bonds.
Permanent methods are an appropriate solution for those who are disappointed with their own hair and feel they need additional hair to have extra volume, length or both on a daily basis.
