Hair extensions are currently trending in the market today with many women adding a couple of inches and volume to their hair. The good thing is there are a number of extensions to choose from, hence having different varieties and taste to widen your choice in terms of color, texture and curly or straight ones. So as to avoid buying poor quality hair extensions, it is advisable that you consult a professional hairstylist so as to advise you on how to know the best quality and even assist you with a price quote.

There are some things that you need to look out for when shopping for hair extensions. The first thing you should be keen on is whether the hair extension issynthetic or actually made from natural human hair. Synthetic hair will not last at all as compared to human hair that lasts extremely long. With human hair no one can notice that it is not your natural hair since it resembles your real hair very much and that’s the beauty of it. Synthetic hair will not give you the best value for you cannot swim with it, nor can you use any form of heat on it.

Another thing you will realize is that quality hair extensions do notshed no matter how many times they are combed or styled. If you want to know for sure if the hair extension you want to buy is of good quality or not, run your fingers through the hair extension and if they glide through smoothly shedding just few strands then it’s of good quality.Besides shedding, good hair extensions should have the same thickness right from the top to all the way to the bottom. Check the hair extension well before buying to see if youwill spot any gaps in between the hair. If you happen to find a good number of gaps or that the thickness is not consistentfrom the top to the bottom, avoid making a purchase lest you go for the leastquality hair extensions.

In addition, check the clip in hair extensions.  Clips are among the main things to check on for they will determine how tightly the extension will hold to your hair. They should be comfortable and give a tight grip for the hair to hold without causing the hair extensions to slip down, which could be quite embarrassing especially if you are in a public place.
