“This hair feels amazing. It’s so soft and blend able. Easy installment, and since you size it to your head there’s no risk of it slipping out. I bought this color and 2001-y-21 it’s like a blonde ombré and I love them both. My hair is dyed a dark purple and this shade still blends with it.”–mikayla
“I got this 2 weeks early so it only took me a week and a half to get it to me which was awesome! The hair isn’t super shiny so it blends well with my hair. It does get tangled easily but it isn’t hard to brush. It’s a really pretty color. The dark blue has the turquoise kind of scattered in it. I only paid about 6$ but it looks like the price went up since then:( it’s very very long! It also makes your hair a lot thicker. The clips don’t make bumps. It doesn’t wrap around the hair at the middle of my head where the length is good but that’s okay. Overall, I’m happy. Good purchase!”–Winnie Ruben
“I really like these clip in extensions because the color is exactly like in the picture and it doesn’t look that shiny compared to another order I received from a different company. These are believable and blend in with real hair well unless you’re like me and have thick wavy hair then no but the only way I made it work was by wearing it in a braid or with my hair straight. My only complaint is that I can’t wear these as often as Id like because the extensions are straight and my hair isn’t but i knew that ordering these so thats on me but other wise if your hair is naturally straight then they’ll blend in perfectly.”–kakie Morrison

If ou haven’t checked out the virgin wigs that are made from Indian human hair on our site, you definitely need to! A lace wig is made by hand and is tied on a lace base one strand at a time. As our site mentions, you can enjoy tangle free Indian Remy hair by purchasing a high quality full lace wig. A wig will give you complete hair coverage and features silky straight Indian hair that you’ll love.
Here are some more tips that are a bit more detailed so that you will learn how to take care of your full lace wig:
Keep it Away from Extreme Heat
Like all hair, exposing any hair locks to extreme heat will only damage the ends and dry out your cuticles. So if you place your wig on a wig head, be sure to keep it away from heat. Obviously don’t place your wig near a fire, heat vent, or anywhere else where it may be damaged from heat over time. Also, when you are wearing your wig don’t expose your locks to heat for a long time either. This means don’t sit close to a fire, and definitely do not use a hair dryer on your lace wig. It will dry out your hair and cause damage that’s hard to repair.
Since a full lace wig looks great while being worn, it’s important to learn how to take proper care of it so that it will stay in great condition. Thankfully full lace wigs are rather easy to take care of. You can gently wash your lace wig if you’ve used hair products on it, such as hair spray (which we don’t recommend by the way). You also can store your wig on a wig head with T-pins to keep it in ready-to-put-on shape before heading out with your full lace wig on.
Gently Comb it Out
Like all hair extensions, full lace wigs are very much the same. Except with full lace wigs you need to be extra careful when combing out the hair on the wig. Even though the hair is pretty secure in the lace base, it’s still important to be cautious. In order to prevent any hair from getting loose, you’ll want to start brushing the hair from the ends to the top, without getting too close to the lace base.
Use a Spray Bottle with Luke Warm Water to Wash it
Since your wig isn’t attached to your head, you’ll need to wash it while it is on the mannequin head. We recommend adding a tablespoon of shampoo to a small spray bottle and filling it with lukewarm water.
After you’re done making your mixture you can place your actual wig in cool water and while you’re doing this, you will need to spray the wig with the shampoo and warm water combination. Next distribute the shampoo throughout the wig and use a wide-tooth comb to work through your hair.
After the shampoo is evenly dispersed through your wig, it’s time to rinse it. Rinse your hair under the cool water and get ready to apply conditioner to the wig next. Now it’s time to add a tablespoon of conditioner to a new spray bottle or you can rinse out the shampoo out of the spray bottle and use that instead if that’s easier. In the same way you worked through your wig with the shampoo, you’ll need to do this with the conditioner.
Once you’re done with washing your wig with both shampoo and conditioner, gently rinse it out again for a third time under cool water. Use a towel and gently dry the hair, afterwords you’ll want to let it to dry naturally after you’ve gotten most of the water out. Don’t rub the hair strands against one another – pat dry the hair to prevent any hair breakage from happening.
We hope these tips have helped you understand how to care for your lace front wig. If you take care of it properly it will last you a long time! So be gentle and loving with your perfect locks!
Mind your hair extensions to keep them in the best condition possible. They are valuable accessories to your look and are actually quite easy to maintain. All you need to know is a few basic care instructions as outlined below. These tips can help you keep human hair extensions looking fabulous and lasting longer.
1. BE EXTREMELY GENTLE
When caring for hair extensions, brushing or styling the extensions gently can prevent the hair from falling out. Use a soft-bristled brush, start at the bottom and slowly work your way up. It is best to care for them more than you would your own hair.
2. WASH WITH MOISTURIZIVNG HAIR CARE PRODUCTS
Place the clips along the line and snap shut. Make sure it’s secure.
3.USE A HEAT PROTECTANT
Add another weft following step 2. Continue to add wefts until the desired style is achieved.
4. DEEP CONDITION
Or you can add in wefts from the top (around the top of the ear) and work your way down.
5.KEEP ENDS TRIMMED
Make a U part on your back head that spans from ear to ear. Snap open each clip on one of your wefts.
Hair wefts are attached to your head by sewing them to a tiny braid made out of your own hair. The track (known to hairdressers as a corn-row) runs horizontally around the back of your head. The tracks are done in the middle of your scalp underneath your hairline so you can’t see them.
Once the tracks are done, the wefts are sewn to them and then your own crown area hair is blended with and combed over the extensions. The crown area of your own hair covers the top track making the extensions seem invisible. The number and size of tracks matches the number and size of wefts. The wefts and tracks ideally should be made in different sizes in order to match exactly the way your hair would look if you had grown it that way yourself.
1) Weaving, A process in which you create tracks on the individuals head and sew the hair extensions on. This method is the most widely used method in adding hair extensions.
2) Braiding, A process in which you add hair extensions by braiding them in. There are many types of braiding techniques which varies from one skilled beautician to another. Tree Braid, Braid Weave or Individuals, Cornrow, and French Braid are just to name a few.
3) Ring loop, One of the new process in which the metal ring is already on the hair ready to attach using the His & Her Ring – Xer. It is very easy to apply and can be re-used.
4) I Tip, A process in which an “I” shaped glue is already on the tip of the hair ready to be attach by using the His & Her Extension Iron or with a Ring. With the Ring, there’s no heat applied to the hair
5) U Tip, A process in which the U shaped glue is already on the tip of the hair ready to attach by using the His & Her Extension Iron.
6) Hot glue gun method, A process in which the extension hair is attached directly to your own hair by heated glue stick. In this method, an acrylic glue stick is placed inside a glue gun which heats and melt the glue. Then, the hair extension and the glue are attached directly onto the individual’s hair.
7) Bonding, The simplest method. A bonding glue is brushed or applied onto the weft of the extension hair and then it is applied at the root of the individual’s hair. It can easily be removed by a remover the glue comes with. This is a temporary method.
8) Clip ons, A process in which the extension hair is pre-cut and has clips attached on the weft to clip on and off to your own hair. It is very simple and easy to wear. You can put it on or take it off as you please.
How much hair you need depends on how many tracks you have. For example: If I had hair to my chin and I wanted hair to my bra line (about 18″ long) I might need 5 or 6 tracks/wefts depending upon my current haircut. If I had hair to my shoulders that was thin and stringy and I wanted it thicker and more luscious but the same length I might need 2 or 3 (or more) tracks/wefts.
Hair extensions should not be applied any lower than the base of your scalp (about even with the middle of your ears) and so your hair under this point covers the extensions while you wear it in pigtails, ponytails, french twists, french braids etc,With proper care, Hair Extensions should last four months.
A large women population cannot grow their hair long and thick naturally but always dream of having a crown of hair on their head. If your case is similar to this, stop feeling disappointed and try out long hair extensions. This article presents you with the required information.
On an average, human hair grows at the rate of 1 cm per month. It means that to have “long cascading hair”, you would have to wait for at least 5-6 years. Thanks to the latest advancements in hair styling, hair extensions are available easily. With hair extensions, you can fulfill your dream of 22 inches long and thick hair in a few hours and that too in your desired hair color and texture. In addition to this, you can have any of the following type of hair extensions. Curly long hair extensions Extra long hair extensions Extremely long hair extensions Normal short to long hair extensions
In fact, hair extensions for braids are very popular in South-East Asian countries as women there love to have long and thick hair. Before knowing whether long hair extensions would look right on you, you should learn something about these commercial hair.
Types of Long Hair Extensions: The two most popular types of long hair extensions are individual strands and wefts. The basis of distinction is the hair extension techniques for application.
Individual Strands: The first method of artificial hair integration is the individual strand integration, which involves applying 30-50 strands of commercial hair to a small section of your own hair. This is done by first coating your hair with a chemical substance and then bonding the commercial hair by any of these methods – weaving, gluing, heat fusing, using waxes or polymers or clamping with metal rods. Such hair extensions generally last for only a few months and have to be removed and integrated again. The process of removal is very crucial and must be done by an expert, as the chances of damage are maximum.
Wefts: Wefts are described as curtains of hair that are attached to the hair at the top of the head and are left free to cascade down. In order to integrate a weft in your hair, it is first cut into different vertical sections. This eases the task of weft application. Your hair is divided into two parts by a horizontal line at the top of your scalp. At the start of the part following the back, braids are made and the sections of weft are sown along with them. The part flowing on the forehead is combed back so that the hair runs and covers the braids. Such braid hairstyles are popularly known as tracks. Once integrated, they remain in this way for a few months. As your hair grows about 1 cm every month, the weft-sections will lose their intact positions. It is necessary to reposition them. For this, you will have to visit your hair stylist for undoing and redoing the weft.
A weft can be either handmade or machine made. The former comes at a higher price than the latter. Still, it is advisable to go for a handmade one as it can be made in a way that it matches with your hair color naturally. A weft is generally made from good quality hair. So feel free to choose the weft hair extensions.
The best ideas for a short ponytail include varying the styles to suit the occasion and one’s outfit. Purchasing attractive hair accessories such as ponytail holders and barrettes can really add to the look of these easy short hairstyles. For casual looks or warm weather ponytails, working with damp hair can usually lead to a sleeker, neater result.
Combing damp, short hair upward from the base of the neck, alternating with doing the same action to the sides, can create a neat, high ponytail. Wet hair should always be combed gently with a wide-toothed comb, rather than brushing it to avoid breaking strands. Coated ponytail elastics are best as rubber versions tend to pull the hair and cause breakage. Thicker covered or terry cloth elastics are usually best only for a looser short ponytail or to place over tighter ones first held in place with thin, coated, stretchy bands. Tiny barrettes that snap easily into the hair can be used randomly to keep stray wisps off the neck or side of the face.
Colorful plastic and metal barrettes can be ideal when a fun, casual short ponytail style is wanted. These can look cute for a day at an amusement park, for example, while also serving to keep the hair out of the eyes. For jogging, running or sports activities, a stretchy headband worn behind the ears can push larger sections of hair, such as bangs, off the face. The hairband can be used with a high ponytail so there is no hair left on the back of the neck that is likely to add to any sweating.
Pearled or jeweled barrettes can dress up a ponytail for an evening out or a special occasion. Separating the top portion of hair and securing it at the back of the head in a short ponytail, while leaving the rest to hang loose, can create an attractive look for many women. Curling the lower portion of hair and adding a fancy barrette or velvet bow can make this type of ponytail style dressy.
Creating a part from the top of the head down the back and separating each side of the hair is the start to different possible double short ponytail looks. For instance, when each side ponytail is placed high up, in a protruding fashion, it can make for a cute look that some younger women may wear well. Combing and gathering the sides of hair to make two low ponytails can also look cute, but also more mature and wearable than higher up ponytails or “pig tails.”
The wig ventilating method incorporates a process similar to making a latch-hook rug. Using a ventilating hook, the wig maker ties strands of hair to a wig foundation. This method of wig-making dates back to King Louis XVI, who wore a wig to disguise his hair loss. Wigs are still made using this process, perhaps because it produces the most natural-looking result.
Creating a wig begins with the foundation, which is a cap-like structure designed to snugly fit the head. Foundations are usually made from some combination of nylon and cotton lace. The hair is then woven into the foundation a few strands at a time using a metal ventilating hook. For the most natural results, human hair is used. Synthetic hair is made with plastic polymers, so can be unnaturally shiny. It’s also difficult to create a wig that has a natural-looking part when using synthetic hair.
Using only a few strands at a time, the wigmaker draws the hair through the wig foundation with the ventilating hook. The hair is then kept in place by tying a small knot. To make a believable wig, this process will be repeated as many as 40,000 times. Around the edges of the wig, to re-create a believable hairline, the wigmaker will use only a single strand of hair in the ventilating process. The creator of the wig will use a variety of hair colors for subtle differences in shading.
The less artful way to create wigs is by using a method called wefting. In this process, machines are used to sew swatches of hair onto the foundation. The lack of delicacy of this process leads to a bushier hairpiece, with no natural part, but a wig produced by this method will be less expensive. Mass-produced “fashion” wigs are made using wefting.
More Tips for Natural Wigs
The most natural-looking wigs are a result of tailoring the hairpieces to a specific person’s measurements. The better the wig fits, the more organic the presentation. Although wigs made from the ventilation process are the most believable-looking, a machine-made wig can be made to appear more natural when a strip of mesh is attached to the hairline, consisting of hairs that have been individually woven through using the ventilation method.
