Types of hair extensions

Hair extensions are done differently depending on who is putting the extensions in. One way to do them is to sew the extensions into cornrows. Often times this is often called a weave.

Sometimes extensions are braided into the hair. This can be tricky and costly. Since it is such a tricky process it is best that the braiding is done by a trained professional.

Some extensions such as I-tips can be glued into the hair. These types of pretipped hair extensions require a special heating iron tool to apply.

If coloring is not an option for you, try visiting a wig shop. They may have a larger selection of color for their hair accessories.

    Thanks for the tips on hair extensions, we have to remember that hair extension removal is so vital as well. We should try to use hair extension removers like the Take Down Remover to safely take out the hair extension without damaging our natural hair.
