Hair Extensions

Hair extensions can not only simplify your hairstyling, but they give hair a ton of body. Always go for extensions that match your hair color & texture & be prepared to shell out some bucks.There is a way to have beautiful hair using Hair Extensions without damaging your own hair.

There are many different types of Hair Extensions on the market, but for the sake of simplicity we will focus on two main types of application methods: Individual Strands and Wefts. The Individual method involves taking small amounts (maybe 20-50 strands) of extension hair (natural or synthetic, but we'll get to that later) and applying to small sections of your own hair by either weaving in, heat fusing, gluing, clamping with metal rods or using waxes and polymers. All of these methods (except for the clamping which is self explanatory) involve coating your own hair with a chemical or foreign substance. ese extensions usually only last a few months before they have to be taken out and completely re-done.

Hair extensions can come in both fake-like (synthetic hair extensions) and natural (human hair extensions) both of which can look and feel just as good as your original hair would. Whether the hair extensions are handmade or natural, our hair extensions technician can make up attachments perfected to match the hair you grow yourself in weight, colour and texture (something that is difficult with a hair wig). The main problem with this method is taking the Hair Extensions out without damaging your own hair. Many people who sell this method to clients will swear that there is no damage to your own hair. The best looking hair extensions for average height women are usually around 22" or less. Our most popular length is 18" which is to your bra line.

Hair comes in many qualities and apart from the method of application. Hair extensions and wigs are available in all hair textures and types, from super silky European to Afro Kinky. You have hairwear options you never dreamed possible. The quality of your hair extension hair will determine whether or not they will look real, and how long they will last. The crown area of your own hair covers the top track making the extensions seem invisible. The number and size of tracks matches the number and size of wefts. The wefts and tracks ideally should be made in different sizes in order to match exactly the way your hair would look if you had grown it that way yourself.

Hair Extensions the same as you would do long hair that you grew yourself. If you have never been able to grow your hair long before it is probably because you are killing it just as quickly as it grows. Many people prefer natural human hair extensions as they are wary of handmade synthetic hair or fear it may end up looking not as good as the real thing, Although fake hair is unbelievably good, at the end of the day it is hard to do better then the real thing.

There are several grades of quality in real hair. The hair we use at Lucinda Ellery is the very best 100% top quality European hair extensions. These natural hair extensions are available in lengths of up to 20 inches. Some people love man-made hair for its disposability, and some hate the thought of wearing real human hair extensions. If you can't grow it and you're in a hurry - buy the hair that you want. Handmade synthetic hair can be absolutely brilliant however some of it is completely appalling.

Hair Extensions tips

  • Wash, condition and moisturize (very important) your hair every 2 - 3 days. The extensions do not receive your natural scalp oils and so need to have moisture added every wash. If you don't moisturize your hair extensions they will become brittle and break easily leading to split and ratty ends. We recommend  a good moisturizer for Hair Extensions.
  • Treat them with respect. They will not grow back if you yank at them with a brush, burn them with the blow dryer, kill them with chemicals. Be nice to them - they cost a lot of money so make sure you get your money's worth.
  • Always brush out all knots before you wash your hair, swim, or sleep. Start at the bottom and work your way up slowly using a paddle brush.
  • Make sure you wash in between the braids to keep your scalp clean and free of bacteria.

Fitness Tip

The colored part of the eye, the iris, gets its appearance from the number of pigments it contains-brown eyes have significantly more pigments than blue eyes.

Beauty Tip

If you chew and swallow your hair hairballs can develop in your stomach in several years. The strands become matted and trap undigested bits of food. They host colonies of bacteria. Surgery is the only way to remove them.
