Beautiful, luscious long hair is always in style, but unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with hair that grows to the lengths that we desire. Don’t worry, many women turn to hair extensions for a little extra help, and the results are amazing if of course, they choose a hair extension method that’s right for their hair!
Bonded or Fusion Hair Extensions: Medium to thick hair
With fusion or bonded extensions, individual strands of hair are bonded or fused to your natural hair using keratin or a special glue. Fusion hair extensions can if taken care of properly last for a long time. You should avoid using conditioners, oils and other hair products to the bonded area as these can contribute to the bond dissolving. Unlike some hair extensions, you won’t be able to reuse these, which means you will need to buy new ones each time you have them redone.
Tape-In Hair Extensions: Fine, thin hair
Tape-in extensions are wefts that are attached to sections of your real hair using a single or double-sided tape. Tape in extensions are ideal for individuals with thin or fine hair, as the tape is virtually undetectable. Avoid putting oil-based or silicone products at the root of the hair extension; otherwise, the tape can slip. The extensions can be reused, and application is very short (around one hour).
Weave or Sew-In Extensions: Thick, curly or coarse hair
A weave requires that the sections of hair are braided from the left ear to the right ear or vice-versa. The wefts of hair are then sewn into the braids via a needle and thread. No glue or heat is needed for this type of application, and the hair can even be reused. Although, you’ll need to visit the salon once a month to have the braids tightened. Make sure that you don’t over-style, if you do the braids could loosen between your appointments.

Micro-Ring/Micro-bead Hair Extensions: Medium and thick hair
Micro-bead extensions are much like fusion hair extensions in that single strand hair extensions are connected to tiny sections of your real hair. No chemicals or heat are needed. Micro-bead hair extensions are not suitable for very fine or thin hair because the bonds are noticeable through the hair.
Clip-In Extensions: Medium density hair
Clip-in extensions are wefts with pressure sensitive clips that connect to your natural hair. They can be a bit challenging to apply at first, but once you get the hang of the technique, they can become a fun way to change your look quickly. Clip-ins are excellent for temporary fixes for special occasions or events, but they need to be removed before going to bed to prevent damage to your hair.
