Hair Extension is basically a kind of false hair that is created artificially and attached to your actual hair. This is done to provide extra length to your existing hair or add volume to your thinning hair.

Additionally, there are many hair extensions available in the market in a variety of colours, eg. Burgundy, Blonde, and many more. The hair extensions used are beneficial for your hair, without damaging your hair strands with harsh synthesized materials.

Categories of Hair Extensions

Broadly, the hair extensions are categorized into two - synthetic and human hair. The man made or the synthetic ones are made from artificial materials like nylon.

The main disadvantage of these is that they cannot be coloured or styled easily. The other disadvantage that these hair extensions have is that they get tangled easily. Also, it is not durable and gets frizzy very fast when exposed to excess water and heat. On the greener side, synthetic hair is very cheap.

However, this is not the case with the man-made hair. The man-made hair can be blow dried and coloured as you would with your own hair. But what’s more special about the human hair extension is that the hair cuticles face the same way.
