How to choose
How to choose the best hair extensions? There are so many brands to choose from, but not all brands of extensions are a high quality product. When it comes to something as personal as (your little secret!) hair extensions you want to make sure you are getting a good product that doesn't matt or tangle after the first wash. Hair extensions are an investment, the better quality you buy the longer they last and the more REAL they look. After all, that is the point of hair extensions.

After a while, I understood that growing a long, beautiful and healthy hair is not so tough. It does not require a multitude of salon products, handfuls of expensive vitamins or sacrifices to the long-hair gods. It merely takes common sense, dedication, and a bit of patience to grow and keep long hair in an excellent condition.I’d like to start this post by stating that I have been wearing hair extensions for about 6 years now. I believe that nice looking hair is the key to every woman’s appearance. Longer, fuller, shinier locks are a sign of youth and good health. As we age, our hair thins (though some are more genetically prone to this than others). Similar to a great blow dry or a killer pair of shoes, hair extensions can give you a little pep in your step. Hair can either make you look pretty or totally destroy your look. Therefore, long healthy-looking hair has always been a priority to me.
However, when my hair got considerably long, I realized that I also wanted it to look full and thick. Naturally, my hair is beautiful but it is also very fine. After trying a lot of blow dry techniques and volumizing hair products I gave up and started to look for a good hair extensions set.
HOW TO CHOOSE HAIR EXTENSIONS
There are many factors to consider when choosing the best hair extensions set for yourself. Here I cover the most important aspects that will help you to make the right choice.
NATURAL HUMAN HAIR VS SYNTHETIC
When looking for the best hair extensions, you should check whether they are made with natural human hair or synthetic materials. Not only will human hair last longer, it will also look like your own hair and can be treated likewise. I presume that not everyone will be comfortable using human hair. But you need to remember, that you cannot use heat with synthetic hair. Forget about hair dryer, straighteners or any other styling tools. Natural hair, on the other hand, can withstand any heat application. You can make a beautiful curl or straighten your hair if you wish. If you’re not sure, like I was, if hair extensions you purchasing are natural, just pop an email to the seller. It’s your right to ask where they get their hair from.
SHOPPING FOR HAIR EXTENSIONS ONLINE VS IN-STORE
When shopping online, especially for expensive products, I always recommend to paying attention to the quality of the website. It is important to be able to read about the product before making a purchase. Always research all the information provided on the website. Also, check if there is an option to easily contact the team in case you have any urgent questions.
One of the reasons I have decided to purchase my last set of hair extensions from Xinfa Seamless is because the website was very user-friendly. I was able to find all the information about the hair. The details on how it is produced and what type of hair extensions I need. There are many educational and informational videos on the website too. That really helped me to choose the length and the colour I needed.
If you decide to buy your hair extensions in-store, make sure you find a good assistant. Ask questions about the company and the quality of the hair they use. When choosing a colour, try to use the natural light if possible. This will help you to choose the perfect shade. Not getting the right colour is a common mistake when buying hair extensions. Most extension companies offer a wide range of colours that make it easier for women to find the right shade.
I still suggest doing your homework online before going to the store. Personally, I find it a bit frustrating to buy a product that I don’t know much about. I think it is better to inform yourself prior the purchase. Don’t rely too much on a shopping assistant in this case. Sometimes they just push whatever needs to be sold or don’t have much experience in the product themselves.
