How long do hair extensions last?

What are hair extensions?

Artificial hair integrations, more popularly known as hair extensions, are sections of extra natural/synthetic hair added to one’s hair in order to make it look longer and/or voluminous. These are the low-cost, easy & readily available alternatives to the expensive medical hair growth treatments & hair transplantations.

Which to Pick: Human hair or Synthetic?

Human hair extensions look natural, last longer and can be treated and styled in the same way as your natural hair. Synthetic hair extensions, on the other hand, are cheaper than real hair extensions and cannot be heat styled.

How to Use These Extensions?

These sections could be clipped/glued/sewn on natural hair by blending additional natural/synthetic hair.

The common methods used include tape-in extensions, clip-in or clip-on extensions, fusion method, weaving method & wigs.

The key to well maintained wigs lies in how you maintain them. De-tangling, washing and rinsing with cold water will keep them safe. Always towel-dry your wigs and keep away from heat styling them as much as you can because it could damage the wig leading to a quicker wear out. Make sure to never brush the wig strands when wet. Storage of wigs in a case/box also helps in increasing its longevity.
