6 Benefits of Wearing Hair Extensions

If you are considering wearing hair extensions for the first time or have more questions about hair extensions and your hair, then this blog is for you.

From adding body and length to trying out a new bold colour you know would turn a few heads, there are so many reasons human hair extensions can be beneficial for your looks and your own hair. Whether you are an everyday casual girl or want to try a special look for a special occasion, hair extensions will have you sorted.

1: Thicken up

6 Benefits of Wearing Hair Extensions

We all have different shapes and size, and the same goes for our hair. Some people naturally very thick hair strands whilst others have thinner, some may have a naturally oily scalp and other the opposite. These are all things considered when thinking of adding volume to your hair. Adding hair extensions to thicken your hair will transform flat and lifeless hair to gorgeous full-bodied hair.

For thin hair, tape in extensions are the best option as they lay flat on your hair, making the extensions appear invisible and natural. They’re also lightweight so they won’t drag your hair down. You can also wear micro hair extensions, as the extensions are attached to the same sized section of your natural hair therefore evenly distributed and match the thickness of your hair. Clip ins and hair wefts can also be used to add volume to thin hair. Find out  how to choose the best hair extensions if you have thin or fine hair.

If you have thick hair and need more volume without creating ‘lion hair’ you can still wear hair extensions. The key to a naturally gorgeous thick head of hair is to ensure you match your hair extensions to your hair as you will need to a less substantial amount, so it looks natural and doesn’t get too heavy for your head. Read our blog on how to choose the right thickness of hair extensions if you have medium to thick hair.

Shipped from our HQ in the UK, our hair extensions are designed to blend seamlessly and give you that instant volume you want.

2: Add length

Growing out your hair? Or maybe you are just wanting a change from your blunt cut bob. Whatever your reasons may be, hair extensions are the brilliant method of avoiding awkward in between lengths and allow you to experiment with your style. Whether you want a way to turn your day look into a fun evening style or you short hair was more a result of a bad haircut this is a great way to get an instant makeover.

You can even add hair extensions to hair as short as three inches and still look natural and gorgeous (depending on hair extension types).For clip ins your natural hair should be at least three to four inches long in order to style it, blend the hair while hiding the clip ins.

3: Cost-effective

6 Benefits of Wearing Hair Extensions

When it comes to hair styling, the bills can pile up. You have products, tools, dyes, treatments, and cuts to contend with. This may seem to counter intuitive but getting a good set of Remy human hair extensions will actually save you money. Think about it. If you destroy your hair less you will need less hair revitalising treatments plus human hair extensions can be dyed the same way your natural hair can so if you get a couple of sets with different tones you have no need to go back to the hairdressers for an expensive dying session. You have your secret weapons that you can change as often as your mood.

While you can install your clip in hair extensions in less than five minutes, we recommend getting a hair professional to put the more permanent extensions in (it will take roughly an hour to put a full head of tape extensions in). Human hair extensions are cost effective as can last three to six months (given that you look after them properly) and be put in several times. If you look after your hair extensions and use good quality (SLS and alcohol-free) hair products, then your hair extensions could last up to six months.

They are also quite flexible, meaning that you can try them with so many styles, while also saving money on unnecessary styling products.

4. Save time

Snoozed your alarm too many times again? Oops, don’t worry we have all done it. When you need to look presentable, but you just don’t have the time to prep. Clip in hair extensions helps you transform your bedhead into work ready instantly, while our more permanent hair extensions mean you can wear hair extensions every day.

5: Styling ease

6 Benefits of Wearing Hair Extensions

If you want hair extensions, you can put your signature on and wear every day then these are your go-to. Human hair extensions are made with real Remy human hair making them smooth, healthy and as easy to style your own hair. You can style, cut and even dye them to suit your desires.

6. Minimal maintenance

Hair extensions are easy to maintain once you know how to. This makes it so much easier to keep your extensions healthier. It isn’t just the maintenance of your extensions that are improved but to your natural hair as well. The way the extensions are made is that the hair spread out over the width of your hair extensions, so the volume and weight are distributed evenly. This essentially means that it doesn’t drag at any one point in your hair and won’t weaken your own hair or make it fall out.
