What are hair extensions?

Hair extensions also called hair weaves, hair extensions are a form of real or synthetic hair that is closely attached to your scalp, adding length, thickness or color to your natural hair.

Well-matched in color and texture, hair extensions mix with your hair, making it difficult to tell you’re wearing them.Good quality human hair extensions are available on online or your nearest beauty store . You can wash, condition, dry and color them just like your own hair. They also provide a great deal of styling

freedom.


Application techniques

Extensions can be braided in, glued in, woven in, or - if you need a change of look for a special event -clipped in.


Why opt for it?

Aftercare

  • Use a gentle shampoo and rinse under cold water to avoid tangles. “Preferably, go for a shampoo with a pH value no higher than pH7.

  • Dilute it in some warm water and sponge it into the hair. Do not massage. Rinse thoroughly and apply conditioner and comb your hair, starting with the ends. Let the extensions air-dry.
