How to know you are getting good hair extensions
Ever bought bundles and just couldn’t figure out how to tell if the hair is truly real? Well we’ve all been there, and even though it might seem like a pretty straightforward thing to know, the truth is real hair is not always easy to spot.
This is because sometimes even the fake hair looks authentic, most times it won’t be until the hair is worn that you will be aware of that.
So how do you know you are getting the best? Well, down below we have prepared a few factors you should assess, both before and after purchase, that can help you to make the right decision and get the best hair possible.
|High Quality Hair||Low Quality Hair|
|Texture||Cuticles should be undamaged and hair should feel very soft. The hair should also be unprocessed; hence, left in its natural color. This will allow the hair to maintain its smooth and silky texture.||Hair is often processed, and therefore might appear to be very shiny and will often times feel a bit course.|
|Bleach||Hair will be able to bleach and dye to your desired color. This will be possible without much hassle.||Bleaching would certainly be a tedious and almost impossible task with low quality hair.|
|Heat||Just like your own hair, good quality hair extensions will be heat-resistant up to high temperatures of even 350 degrees or more.||Usually lower quality hair will burn whenever in direct contact with high temperatures from a heating tool. Tip: Heat is not recommended.|
|Price||Authentic 100% human hair is often pricier than hair that is of lower quality. In most cases, this higher cost heavily depends on where the hair has been sourced from.||Without a doubt lower quality hair is often the most affordable. This is because it is often more readily available and is able to be produced in bulk; therefore, manufacture cost is often very affordable.|
