Synthetic extensions do not look like real hair. While they may be cheaper than human hair extensions, if you want real looking extensions do not get synthetic hair.
For the most realistic extensions, you should get human hair. The individual method takes small amounts of hair and sticks it to your real hair. The methods for adding the extension to your real hair include weaving, heat fusing, gluing, clamping or using waxes or polymers. Wefts last longer and look thicker than individual strand extensions.
* When you brush you hair, use a soft tipped brush.
*You can dry your hair as you normally would, though an ionic hair dryer is best.
The main problem with this method is taking the Hair Extensions out without damaging your own hair.
Many people who sell this method to clients will swear that there is no damage to your own hair, but one hair extension expert told me that “in 17 years of doing hair extensions we have yet to see a client who has previously had the individual method applied without damage to their own hair.
You look after Hair Extensions the same as you would do long hair that you grew yourself.
*Wash, condition and MOISTURIZE (very important) your hair every 2 – 3 days. We recommend a good moisturizer for Hair Extensions.
*Always brush out all knots before you wash your hair, swim, or sleep. It also means that the hair in the braid remains virgin and when you eventually have the extensions off your own hair is in brilliant condition.
