Knowing what hair extension type and style to buy is an important decision. Many women will head to the store and simply buy the kits thinking that they can just put them in just as they would hair dye, or perm curlers. This is really not the case when looking at specific hair extension options.

There are a few pros and cons about the types of styles and also the actual manufacture of the products.

First and foremost it is important that you are well educated as to hair extensions. Black hair extensions for one are the most popular. If you ensure that you are well versed in the concept you will save yourself some money long term, and also make sure that your hair will stay healthy and beautiful for years to come. Even if you are going to buy real hair extensions you need to know that how they are attached is a big and important step.

Gone are the days that you need to wait 1-2 or even 3 years to grow nice long elegant hair. Applying real hair extensions to your existing look is rather simple in a weave style. First the stylist will create small braid batches. Once this is complete the extensions are sewn into the braid. This creates the appearance of a much fuller hair style. When you go with real hair extensions you can also correct minor errors as cutting the extensions will not be s noticeable as those of synthetic extensions.

The pros are pretty simple; they are all about convenience, new style that suits the wearer, and cost. Clip-on for example are cheap and work well. The other options out there vary in cost, but will also come with their own cons.

Care of your hair extensions is basically the same as your real hair. You will want to keep everything clean and conditioned. Avoid letting your hair dry out, or the extensions may as well. This can cause the bonding to let go, which would create a poor image and also force you back to the stylist to have it fixed which will cost you money. If you are using real hair extensions you should also purchase some moisturizing oil, this will protect the hair as you will not be able to produce the follicle oils naturally to these extended areas. So whether you are going to buy a black hair extension or a red hair extension, we hope that you have learned something from this little article of ours.
