Sexy Hair = Feeling Sexy = Boosted Confidence = All Round Happiness 😀
I would like to discuss in this blog, the differences between the different types of hair available available on the market, so that those who’re considering getting hair extensions, or that have already got had hair extensions can discover out a bit bit extra about their options before having them applied. I can have another blog written soon in regards to the completely different utility technique choices.
I have naturally very thin hair which tends to split easily, and when it grows past my shoulders, looks form of pathetic because there’s not enough volume to do something with it. That is genetic for me sadly, and there’s nothing I can do about it..
besides either have a brief hair model (which I do not like in any respect), or put on hair extensions!
That is me, with out and with hair extensions.
I have been applying and carrying hair extensions for the last 5 years. I have tried virtually each technique and different kind of hair imaginable. Some has been completely improbable! And a few has been total shite and form of f*cked up my hair for a while.
So I would like to discuss right here the different types of hair accessible, what I’ve found to be nice, and what I’ll recommend you stay clear of if you’re in search of quality hair extensions to be part of your life.
** Please keep in mind all issues discussed here have stemmed from my very own, and my purchasers private experiences solely, and I am actually not having a dig at any specific ethnicity, companies or products, these are simply things I have found from my own analysis and expertise. If in case you have every other opinions that you are feeling are worth mentioning, please leave a comment. **
1) ASIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS. I personally, have never had a good experience with Asian hair extensions. I do know people who’ve managed to put on them and look after them for up to a year, however myself personally has never been in a position to place up with them for longer than 2 months. They seem to become very dry, knotty, and hard to manage. I think that it’s because the hair has been highly processed (obviously most Asian hair is naturally black – but a lot of the hair used for extensions is bleached very light after which dyed to in style colours using fabric dye – not hair dye, and then coated with a silicone remedy), it feels nice at first, but shortly turns into quite unmanageable. Also if you are of Caucasian descent like myself, you will see the hair simply doesn’t really are inclined to blend effectively along with your pure hair, as it has a unique texture. I do have several Asian clients though who prefer to put on the Asian hair extensions, although they still tend to have to replace them with new ones around every 3-6 months.
So much hair in the marketplace, being offered online (often for quite low cost costs), and by many suppliers who simply advertise their hair as “100% Human Hair” (and don’t mention where the hair is from) is Asian hair. I don’t personally recommend it or use it in our salons (we used to), however we had too many complaints about the hair high quality that we stopped utilizing it. Asian hair might be more reasonably priced than different hair sorts, though as I discussed beforehand, normally does not last as lengthy, and may be fairly troublesome to take care of.
There are suppliers and salons on the market that may promote you Asian hair but will tell you it is healthier high quality, as a result of it does really feel improbable at first (be carrying of overly shiny & silky clean hair coated in silicone – it washes off and does not final) so it can be very troublesome to know for sure what you are getting. I know this as a result of it has occurred to me a number of instances. This is the reason I all the time check every new product on myself and my shut associates, so I know what the standard is like over time and how lengthy it will final.
2) INDIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS. May be actually good or really dangerous. A whole lot of well-known (and costly) hair extension salons use Indian Hair. It has a superb reputation for being simple to keep up, soft, gentle and lengthy lasting (provided you treat it proper of-course). Nevertheless I’ve had the unlucky experience of using Indian hair that tends to shed lots (low quality bonding), or get a whole lot of cut up ends and tangles. It is regular if some hair comes out at first after or throughout application, although when it continues to occur all through the life of your hair extensions, may be annoying and costly to change. I counsel if you are dealing with this to discuss re-bonding options along with your hair extension technician.
We do use Indian hair extensions on our clients and we also supply it wholesale to other salons and technicians around Australia. We have our Indian hair custom made to our specifications together with ensuring the bonds are top quality and the extensions will not shed. It took us about three years of samples and testing to find a supplier we had been happy with. Our purchasers are inclined to get around 6 months to 1 12 months out of the Indian hair whether it is looked after appropriately. The principle distinction between Indian hair and Russian hair, is that the Indian hair tends to go a bit extra fluffy and requires extra frequent brushing / styling.

3) RUSSIAN HAIR EXTENSIONS. I have found Russian hair extensions to be the creme de la creme of the hair extension world. The hair seems to remain tender and simple to manage for lots longer than different types of hair. It could still get dry (all hair extensions usually will since they are useless hair – at all times remember this and do not expect them to just be like your actual hair) but when using the appropriate hair care products, the hair will stay silky clean and look and feel way more pure than the other forms of hair. Russian hair is mostly costlier than the other hair types, although can last for up to or over twice as long, saving you money in the long run if you intend to put on your hair extensions for a long time. It is also far less of a trouble if you aren’t somebody who needs to place lots of effort into your hair each single day (like myself). I prefer to do my hair nicely on weekends and some week days, but there are also many days that I’m just too busy (or drained) to bother to do anything with my hair, so I merely brush it and put it right into a pony tail / bun / or clip for the day and it simply stays there nicely till I take it out at the top of the day. I additionally discover with Russian hair the hair care routine is less strict as the hair is much more forgiving if you do not observe set hair extension care rules, for instance, I sleep with my Russian hair in a pony tail (24″ hair), I let it air dry, and that i swim within the pool or seashore with it fully out, and it still manages to stay in good condition.
