What you need to know about hair extensions


Extensions are great if you have thin hair or just can’t seem to grow it longer than your shoulder – seriously, what is with that?!

However, there are a few things you need to know before you invest (a lot) of money into your hair.

Fine hair? Avoid glue-ins
If you have fine hair, you need to avoid glue-in hair extensions. The glue can actually be thicker than your hair making it harder to remove – eek, sounds painful!

Getting used to it
It will take a bit of getting used to, and not like the getting-used-to-a-new-cut kind of used to. Styling will be awkward for a while but it will get easier – we promise.

Don’t just go to anyone
Seriously, when it comes to your hair, professionalism goes a long, long way! Don’t just pop into any ole hairdressers – you want to be sure they’ve done this before, even if it means paying a little more.

Taking care of them
If you have synthetic extensions avoid using any hot styling tools. If you want to continue to rock GHD curls or have poker straight hair, you may want to consider going for human hair. You also can’t wash synthetic ones like you would normal hair.
