Keep reading below and we’ll tell you some of the numerous benefits using these extensions can offer.
Different Types of Extensions
There are different types of hair extensions available to choose from. We’ll quickly explore these methods before discussing styling options.
• Micro Loop
These types of extensions are applied by looping single strand extensions pre-loaded with a micro ring through your own hair and clamping into position with a plier tool to secure into place.
• Nano Tip
The Nano Tip Extensions are applied by threading a tiny nano ring onto the natural hair, sliding a nano tip strand into the ring and clamping with a plier tool to secure into place.
The fastest, easiest, and least damaging method. They can also be applied without the help of a professional. These types of extensions are a great way to get a temporary colour or volume boost.
These types of hair extensions are fused to your hair using keratin bonds that are attached to the ends of the extensions. Heat application is used in order to fuse them.
With tape-in hair extensions, wide bonds of tape are used to attach to your hair. Your own hair clamps down between the tape to hold them in. These types of extensions are easy to apply and can last between 6-12 weeks.
• Sewn-In Weave
Having hair extensions sewn in requires your hair to be sewn into a track made from micro rings known as a braidless weave or using cornrow braids. The extensions are then sewn into your hair using a needle and thread.
