Hair Extensions: A Fashion Trend

Hair Extensions

Hair extensions have become very popular in the last decade with many celebrities taking advantage of the instant volume and length. However, this is an expensive process and there are a few things to watch out for.

Hair extensions are lengths of either real or synthetic hair that can be affixed close to the scalp through a number of ways such as braids, weaves, bonding, metal tubing, heat shrink tubing & adhesive based bonding. When done correctly, hair extensions are not noticeable…no one can tell if you’re wearing them. They can provide volume, extend hair, and add highlights or lowlights without the harshness of coloring your own hair. Some extensions can be worn continuously for up to 3 months before requiring maintenance.

Hair extensions come in many colors, textures, styles and lengths to match any hair type. Natural or human hair extensions are more expensive than synthetic hair because they can be colored, set, curled or treated. Synthetic hair will melt if exposed to the high temperatures of a curling iron or a hot blow dryer; it is used as purchased, and is generally not recommended. Synthetic extenders are available widely at department stores. Human hair extensions are generally purchased through salons that provide extensionist services. Info from WiseGeek.

Several factors have to be considered before deciding to have a hair extension. First to consider is the budget. A minimum of $2,000 should be set aside initially that depends on the type/method of hair extensions. It’s always best to get the opinions of at least 2-3 professionals on what type of hair extension process is appropriate for your kind of hairstyle & requirements before finally deciding especially because it involves investment of time & money. For the meantime, before you decide to get a hair extension, take a look at these pictures and see how hair extensions can totally change one’s look.

Hot Beauty Product: At Home Color Enhancer

November 16th, 2009 by dooce


I am looking for something to post, and I found this great color enhancer, which is actually a DIY product. No need for you to go to the saloon and be charged of hundreds of dollars just to get the color you want in your hair.

Another reason why I love this hair color enhancer is it does not look fake. Its color are solid and uniform that it is so hard to tell if it is fake, or you are naturally born with the color. I also love its ability to naturally break into dimensional color so it allows you to add the subtle high and low shades found in your hair. Unlike other hair coloring treatment that only colors the hair in a plain and monotone way, which looks so unnatural.
