Hair Extensions: what type should I get and where should I get it from? Watch
P.S I have fine hair so I'm getting extensions with the aim of making my hair thicker btw
Your best bet would be to contact a few salons/freelance extensionists, look at pictures of their work/testimonials and book for a consultation. If they are half decent at their job, they should absolutely offer you a consultation and select the correct method for your hair. There are loads around now - keratin glue hot fusion bonds, microbonds/rings, nanorings, tape, sewn in weave, etc etc. The correct method really depends on your hair type, length, thickness/texture, how much hair you're having put in (half or full head) and the overall look you're trying to achieve. Similarly, the type of hair they use will differ in quality and in price. You should always go for remy hair as this has undergone minimal chemical treatment so will last longer provided you follow all maintenance and aftercare properly. People who say hair extensions damage your hair have probably only had negative experiences due to poor removal, no maintenance and aftercare, matting, etc. We naturally shed hair everyday, but when you have extensions in this shed hair stays in the bonds. When they are removed, all this shed hair comes with it too so it looks like all your hair is falling out.. not the case at all lol. Your hair does feel 'thinner' after removal because you have become accustomed to having all this hair glued into your head and then it's gone! Have a look on the Beautyworks, Halohair and Greatlengths websites because they list registered and qualified technicians who use their hair and there might be someone in your local area. You may have to travel a little bit to find someone worth going to and... if it's cheap THINK WHY! You should be expecting to pay upwards of £200+ minimum. I've had extensions on and off since 2012 and love them.
