If you don't want to end up looking like a ruffled cat just 2 days after having had your extensions applied, it's important that you know the different qualities of hair available on the market and their costs.
At this point you might be asking yourself...how do I understand what quality of hair is used in the extensions I purchase?
Don't worry! Here are some tips to help you!!! Let's divide the hair that makes up extensions into 3 different groups according to its quality:
You have to keep in mind that not all the hair in a ponytail is the same length, so in order to make the perfect extension, the hair has to be divided into different groups. In other words, premium quality 50 cm long extensions will be made up of at least 80% of 50 cm long hair and will not contain any short 35-40 cm length hair.
It is always high quality hair but is not checked and grouped according to its length.
Longer hair costs more than shorter hair so by using more short hair to make the extensions producers can profit more.
The final result? These hair extensions end up being thinner and not as full at the ends, therefore will need to be trimmed or cut. At this point, instead of having 50 cm long hair extensions you end up with a 30/40 cm long extensions.
This means that the hair has been collected from various brushes or from discarded premium quality hair.
Unfortunately, in this case, we will never be 100% sure that the hair, and consequently the cuticles, are all aligned in the same direction.
The hair becomes weak and knotty, so in order to avoid tangling, the cuticles are removed damaging the structure of the hair! The hair in the extensions becomes dry after just a few days or weeks.
Therefore, when you ask a hairstylist the price for an application of tape-in extensions be very careful! Always ask your hairstylist what types of hair extensions are going to be applied.
Our advice is:
Always choose premium quality hair which is more expensive but lasts much longer. Don't purchase “cheap” extensions thinking you've made a bargain because although you can easily end up spending €300/350 they can get ruined in just a few weeks.
Therefore, pay careful attention to the type of hair used to make the extensions you are going to apply and keep these 3 tips in mind:
