What Are Hair Extensions?
Hair extensions, some other names as artificial hair integrations or hair weaves, are a kind of item/hair that adds length and/or fullness or even some trendy bangs to the human hair. They are a great way to rock different styles, without having to commit to a certain look for too long. Hair extensions are usually keratin tips, clipped, glued, or sewn on natural hair by incorporating additional human or synthetic hair.
The very first element you need to know about hair extensions is that they have 2 main origins: real human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions. Each has its own downsides and advantages. So you know the difference between them?
Human Hair Extensions And Synthetic Hair Extensions
Human hair extensions are exactly the same as what they sound like. This type of extensions is made out of real, human hair from top to bottom, collected from a donor. Not only do human hair extensions have a natural look and feel, bring us a certain shine and movement that's rather difficult to recreate in synthetic hair, they are also easy to cut, style and blend with your own current hairstyle. The biggest drawback of human hair extensions may be that their price isn’t reasonable for everyone.
Synthetic hair extensions, on the other hand, can be a more affordable option that are usually cheaper. They are made out of various synthetic, blended fibers, and don’t contain human hair. 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. However, they are less versatile than human hair, need to take more effort to change curl patterns and also can’t last as long as human hair.
