Some people dream of having longer and more voluminous Brazilian Hair. Because it sometimes does not grow as fast or as thick as some of us would like, hair extensions are an option. Hair extensions can offer versatility that real hair cannot give.
The history of Peruvian Hair pieces traces back to the time of the ancient Egyptians, who used wigs when they would shave their heads to be more comfortable in the hot climate and decrease lice infection. For centuries, Human Hair Weave pieces were only available to wealthy individuals
Hair extensions come in two forms: synthetic and human. Synthetic hair extensions are created out of artificial fibers that are altered to mimic the look and texture of human hair. These extensions typically do not last long---even as little as a few weeks---and mat and tangle rather easily. Most synthetic hair extensions cannot tolerate heat applied to them, as they will melt. Chemically altering synthetic hair is not possible.Human hair extensions are made hair that has been sold or donated. They can be heated and processed to achieve various colors and textures. They can last up to one year longer than synthetic hair with proper care and maintenance.
Synthetic hair is typically less expensive than human hair because it is of lower quality. The type of method used to apply the hair extensions will influence the cost as well. The price to have extensions applied can range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars.
When choosing hair extensions, the color and texture must be considered. The goal of hair extensions should be to produce a natural-looking result. In other words, no one should be able to tell your hair has extensions, unless you desire otherwise. The individual should choose hair extensions that match her own hair color and texture, such as straight and fine or curly and coarse.
Methods of Application
There are several methods of applying hair extensions. The bonding method uses glue that is applied to the wefts of the hair extensions. Thereafter, the hair extension wefts are applied to the individual's natural hair in small sections. The sew-in method involves using a hair-weaving needle and thread to sew the wefts of the hair extensions into braids formed by the natural hair. The most expensive method---fusion---applies nonwefted hair extensions to the roots of the individual's natural hair with a special wax.
