Beautiful long hair has always been a matter of pride for women, but not everyone is lucky to be blessed with a crowning glory they desire. To address this worldwide problem and bring smiles back to those who are looking for rich tresses and locks, hair extensions have proven to be a viable solution. Hair extensions are used along with natural hair to give it a fertile and realistic look. Hair extensions can be natural or artificial/synthetic and are available in a range of colors, textures and quality. There are various techniques that are used during hair extension procedure. The most often used techniques include bonding & sealing, clip-in or clip on, infusion, micro rings, netting, fusion, lace fronts, and tracking.
Decoded: Hair Extensions
The most widely used hair extensions are made of natural human hair, which are collected in bunches from donors who have long hair. The collection of a huge amount of hair leads to mixing of cuticles in different directions. Cuticles are the outermost layer of hair that act as a protective layer for the softer inner core of the hair including the medulla and cortex. Human hair is made up of three layers of protein. This includes the dead, hard protein, called keratin with cuticle being the outermost layer. The cuticle is made of overlapping arrangement of tightly packed cells. Cuticles are mainly affected by the hair-conditioning products available in the market.
Explained: Natural Hair & Remy Hair
Natural hair, also known as virgin hair, is collected from donors with cuticles facing different directions. Hair needs to be processed properly and arranged uniformly before using for extensions. The virgin hair is thus processed to place cuticles in a uniform pattern. The hair with cuticles facing the same direction is also known as Remy hair. Artificial color and texture are also added to the Remy hair to make them more uniform for bulk sales. Some types of hair collections are also processed en masse in acid to strip the hair of cuticle layers, giving them more smooth, but thin texture. The processed hair is then given a layer of thick silicon coating, making it shiny and beautiful.
Dynamics of Using Synthetic Hair
Synthetic hair are made of wide range of synthetic fibers. These hair lack the quality and texture of the natural hair as they are easily damaged by heat and friction. Appliances like curling irons and straightening combs damage the synthetic hair. Even the quality of the hair may vary. However, some newer versions of synthetic hair are available that are more heat resistant. The only advantage of this kind of hair extension is the price, which is far cheaper than the natural hair extension.
Explained, Weft Hair
Weft hair can be defined as hair designed to make one's hair look longer and thicker. Both natural hair and synthetic hair are used to create weft hair extensions. The wefts are available in straight, curly, and wavy forms. The wefts can be glued or attached with the existing natural hair using some other technique making them more beautiful, long, and thick textured. Weft hair is also termed Curtain hair due to its curtain like appearance.
