This blog can be ended very quickly by saying the best hair extensions are, of course, real Remy hair extensions personally matching your hair type and colour.
To understand what I mean by this you have to understand, naturally, ladies have differences in their hair. Thicker, more voluminous, finer, darker, lighter, so many characteristics can be used to define hair. As I go through this quick blog, you’ll see I make reference to different hair types such as Asian hair or Russian Mongolian Hair. Through referring to their origin and race, different races hold different characteristics within their hair and structure.
By the way, this is one of the most overlooked, yet most important things to consider when buying hair extensions.
So why is the hair structure so important?
Health is so important. By default, if you’re of the mindset to spend hundreds of pounds on hair extensions to make your hair as beautiful as can be, then retaining your natural shine and minimising breakages should be top of your list.
I’ve lost count of the number of times people have written, or are quoted as saying that thicker or heavier hair is better quality. Actually whilst the thickness or weight may be right for one, it won’t be for all. A good example of thick hair is adult or young adult Asian hair, which by its nature is heavy, as a consequence of its weight there will be significantly increased pull on the roots, this will often result in more hair being tugged out than would have naturally occurred for ladies with a scalp used to holding only fine lightweight hair. Now some ladies will better suit Asian hair, but if this hair is thicker than the natural hair, not only will it not look right, it will cause unnecessary harm to the scalp itself.
Thicker hair has different styling needs to finer hair, and then vice versa. Fine hair dries faster and is far more prone to heat damage. What does this mean? Well if you have thicker, more coarse hair extensions such as Russian Mongolian, or traditional Asian hair, but you attach this to your naturally fine hair, the additional time required in the drying and styling process for your thicker locks may well cause real heat damage to your own, more sensitive hair.
