There are many varieties of hair extension available on the market. Whether you want to add length or volume or just protect your natural hair, there are many options to choose from.
Some of the most popular types of extensions are pre bonded hair extensions. These types of hair extensions are used as individual extensions and come in many varieties. Below is a list of the various types available, and descriptions of their features.
Stick-tip extensions have shoelace-type tips and are used for micro-ring extensions. This method of applying hair extensions doesn’t involve braiding, glue or heat. The extensions are applied with small, undetectable cylinder rings. These silicone-coated rings are applied to the tips of the extensions and securely clamped into position, which means the hair can remain in place for several months. This is one of the safest, and therefore most popular, types of extension.
These Remi hair extensions are sourced from the southern regions of Russia and Mongolia and have tiny stick tips which have been made with German keratin, which works better with mini locks Nail-Tip/U-Tip Extensions.Nail-tip extensions are applied using a heat connector. They have tips which are coated with an adhesive. When heated, these tips adhere to your natural hair, which makes it a quick and easy process.
These extensions do not require a threader or beads. The hair has the ring with the loop already attached so it can fit the individual extensions. This type of extension can last 6-8 months with the correct care. All these styles of extensions are available in human hair, including Remi, double-drawn and American Dream.
Most are available in a wide variety of colours, including black, brown, blonde, red, copper and ombre/dip-dyed. A range of lengths is also available, from 16 to 24 inches. All extensions are straight, but as they are made from human hair, they can be styled in the same way as your natural hair. Extra conditioning and care will usually be required to keep the extensions looking their best. Putting a bit of effort into looking after your hair is worth it, however.
