HAIR EXTENSIONS FAQ

During the last couple of years, hair extensions have become really popular. The hair industry has evolved so much and there are so many high-quality products that offer amazing results for women who want to add length and volume to their hair. There are so many different types of hair extensions you can choose from that everybody can find something that is right for them. From clip-in, flip-in, tape in, to micro ring, micro loop, and fusion, just to name a few, extensions come in all kinds of interesting varieties. For that reason, at Malaysia Hair Imports you can purchase extensions that fit your budget and your needs.

Women who have never worn extensions often don’t really know what to expect. If you are new to this world, you probably have a lot of questions and feel a bit overwhelmed. But don’t worry, we have got you covered. In this article, we have compiled answers to the most frequently asked questions.

After you read this, you will find out all the basic information about hair extensions and that will enable you to pick the right product, learn how to care for them and get familiar with the basic terms like Remy hair and much more. So let’s get started!

HOW LONG DO HAIR EXTENSIONS LAST?

The hair itself can last for a long time, often more than 6 months if you take care of it and if it’s genuine Remy. That’s why you should really try to maintain it by following simple guides. But remember that certain extensions methods will require refitting. Apart from the clip in and flip in hair methods, most other hair extensions will eventually grow out.

People think that you can simply wear your extensions for months and months without getting them reapplied and while some types do allow for that, you have to understand that your hair grows so the extensions grow down with your hair. In that case, you do need to have regular maintenance appointments. But that doesn’t mean you have to buy new extensions, they just need to be reinstalled.

If you let them grow out too long, you will be able to see them. For example, your hair grows about an inch each month, so imagine what happens after a couple of months, that’s a lot of growth. This is also not good for your own strands as well because it puts a lot of strain on your natural hair.

HOW LONG DO GLUE HAIR EXTENSIONS LAST?

Hair extensions that use glue like tape-ins usually last for 3 to 6 months. It all depends on how you maintain them. If you’re careful about not damaging the glue, use the right products, and avoid hot tools, the lifespan of your extensions can be even longer than 6 months. If you have genuine Remy hair, which is the best quality hair around, you can extend the lifespan of the hair for up to 8 months. That’s why you should take maintenance very seriously.

But as we explained in the previous questions, glue based extensions do require you to reapply them every 4 to 8 weeks. The exact time depends on your hair growth, but as soon as you notice that your locks have grown for more than 1 or 2 inches, that means it’s time to remove them and apply them again.

WILL HAIR EXTENSIONS DAMAGE MY HAIR?

Generally speaking, no, hair extensions will not ruin your hair. The only case when that can happen is if they are not applied properly or cared for. If you follow simple guides for installation and maintenance, there’s absolutely nothing to be afraid of.

Something you need to understand before you get extensions or before you’re about to remove them is that some of your hair may come out, but you don’t have to fear drastic hair loss. Again, if they were applied incorrectly, you might actually be breaking some of your hair, but that can be easily avoided.

Typically, the hair that was supposed to come out naturally gets trapped within the glue or the attachment. So once you take it out, you might experience a bit of hair coming out, but again, that’s the hair that would fall out naturally anyway. Also, after you remove hair extensions, you may feel like a lot of your hair is gone, but actually only the extensions are gone and you’ve been used to having that extra hair. So it’s something you have to get used to after removal because you forget the feel of your natural hair.

The last thing you need to remember and expect before getting your new hair is that extensions require you to be much more careful than with your natural hair. Some people comb them out really roughly and don’t really take their time. You shouldn’t rush and it’s important to be very gentle with them in order to avoid damage. If you follow the rules and are very careful, you will have long lasting hair extensions and you won’t do any damage to your own hair.

ARE HAIR EXTENSIONS COMFORTABLE?

 

Since there are many different attachment methods, some of them you can barely feel on your head, and others take a bit of getting used to. You have extra hair on your head so it can’t feel completely like your natural hair. When you first get extensions, it might be a little bit weird because it’s new, or if you touch the back of your head or the sides, you might actually feel them, but that doesn’t mean they’re uncomfortable to wear. Sleeping with extensions can also be a new experience, but it’s not particularly uncomfortable.

All of that better as time goes on and you get more and more used to your new hair. This is just something to keep in mind when getting hair extensions for the first time and something to expect. After a couple of days, you’ll get used to them and won’t feel them at all.

HOW MUCH DO HAIR EXTENSIONS COST?

High-quality, human hair extensions are simply not going to be as cheap as synthetic hair and that’s pretty obvious. You can find amazing extensions that are not extremely expensive, but you cannot expect to buy quality hair for a couple of dollars. Anything that seems too cheap is probably of very low quality and since those extensions will not last you for a long time, you’re not really saving money.

If you’re looking for quality, you should buy genuine Remy hair and it’s a good idea to invest in top quality hair because you can wear it for months and it looks so much better than cheap, thin hair that has no shine. The price of extensions varies and depends on the length, thickness, and the application method. Usually, high-quality Remy extensions are in the $100-$500 range. If you want hair that is very long and thick, the price obviously goes up. If you’re on a budget, clip-ins are a good option because it’s one of the cheapest methods, but still, offer high-quality hair.
