Different types of hair
Hair extensions, hair additions, hairpieces, or wigs consist of human or synthetic hair. The type of hair can be 100% human or artificial. What are Remy’s hair extensions? These are synthetic hair. Synthetic hair is manufactured plastic, nylon fibers and contains no human hair. You cannot color synthetic hair, and heat can damage its form. So not use curling irons, straighteners, or blow dryers. The hair will melt or be severely damaged.
However, quality human hair is considered the best for a natural look. On the other hand, human hair looks and feels the most natural. You can style and treat human hair extensions just like your own hair. It is best not to combine synthetic and human hair. The exception can be, adding synthetic grey hair to a human hairpiece if you want some grey hair showing. Synthetic hair will not take on colors.
How long do hair extensions last?
How long will the extensions be in good shape before needing replacement? Most hair additions types last up to a year and, in many cases, longer. Clip-In hair extensions usually last up to a year. However, with Tape-in, the hair itself lasts up to six months. If you don’t wear them frequently and take good care of them, they may last longer. To extend the life of the product:
- Give tender loving care to the extensions.
- Wash your hair once or twice weekly and wash gently with a sulfate-free shampoo and a light conditioner.
- Dry the roots entirely if you are using any semi or permanent attachment.
- Brush out the hair, and tie your hair up in a braid before bed to keep your extensions from getting frizzy.
How long can I go between applications? Fusion hair applications last between 3 to 4 months. Tape-in extensions are generally kept for six to eight weeks. On average, glue-ins and all bonded extensions can last around 1-2 years with the upkeep of 6-8 weeks. This time frame includes MicroLink’s hair extensions, also called Micro bead extensions.
