What are Hair Extensions?
According to Google, hair extensions are “artificial hair integrations” that are for the enhancement of your natural hair. There are various ways for them to be applied. Stay tuned as we’ll dive in a bit more on how you can apply them. For years, hair extensions have been the thriving, driven factor for the evolution of the hair industry.
Types of Hair Extension on the Market
You can classify the hair extension according to many categories depending on the method of application
Here are some of the most important classifications of hair extension.
- Weft Hair Extension
- Clip-on Hair Extension
- Tape on Hair Extension
- Keratin Hair Extension ( Pre-bonded Hair Extension)
- Micro Link Hair Extension
- Halo Hair Extension
Micro link/Microbead/Micro-ring/Loop Hair Extensions
This type of hair extension is applied by looping the single-strand micro-bead extensions through the user’s own hair and clamping down with a pair of pliers and a metal bead to finish. So pretty much, your entire head is covered in these little beads. You need to go to a professional for the application of micro-bead hair extensions.
Sewn-in/Weft Hair Extensions
Sewn-in hair extensions are only a good fit for those who have super thick, coarse, or naturally super curly hair. Your own hair is braided tightly into corn rows throughout your entire head, and the extensions are then attached using a needle and a thread. A pro about these hair extensions is that they work super well for girls who have tons of hair that is thick and coarse, however, a con is that the tight braids seriously strain your scalp, therefore they are not advisable for those who have thin hair. Also, consider hygienic reasons – it may be difficult to wash off the sweat and dirt in the scalp because the entire scalp is covered in cornrows. You need to go to a professional for the application of sewn-in hair extensions as well as consistently visit the salon (even six weeks or so) to ensure that the extensions are still sewn in correctly into place and if the braids need to be tightened up again.
Clip-in Hair Extensions
Clip-in Hair Extensions are the fastest, easiest, and least damaging type of hair extension that you can apply all by yourself without having to go to a professional. Clip-in hair extensions are a temporary method of hair extensions, which means you can clip them in and out whenever you want. Clip-in hair extensions are ideal if you are looking to add length and volume to your hair without the commitment or breaking the bank. Clip-in hair extensions are a popular choice among women all over the world for bridal and bridesmaids’ hairstyles as they can greatly enhance any hairstyle. You need to take off your clip-in hair extensions when you shower, sleep, or swim, however, clipping them in takes only about 5 minutes.
Tape-in Hair Extensions
Tape in the method of hair extensions involves taking each weft and literally taping them onto your own hair. The wefts are connected by wide bonds of tape and your own hair is placed between them and clamped around the strands. Pros to this method of hair extensions are if you wear your hair extensions without a break, these can last in your hair for 6-12 weeks. Some cons to tape in hair extensions are that it can be difficult to tie your hair up how you want it since you can’t reposition the wefts after they are applied, and they can also begin tangling with your own hair as it starts growing out. You need to go to a professional for the application of tape in hair extensions.
Glue-in/Keratin Bond/Pre-bonded Hair Extensions
These hair extensions are attached to the hair with keratin bonds that are on top of the extensions, which are fused with a hot tool. This technique requires heat for application, and consistent visits to the salon to maintain them. They can look great, however, it is best to avoid using oils, conditioners, or any hot styling tools because this can weaken the bonds and make the extensions come out.
Grades of Hair Extension on the Market
We can also custom your hair extension based on your requirement
- 100% Human virgin hair
- Remy hair
- Machinery Remy hair
- Non-Remy hair
What is Remy’s human hair? Is Remy hair human hair?
Yes, Remy hair is real human hair. All Remy hair extensions are human hair, but not all human hair extensions are Remy. The term Remy means that the hair comes unprocessed and with a cuticle layer that is still in-tact. Meaning that it’s very healthy, soft, shiny, and ultimately very high in quality!
What is Machinery Remy human hair?
Machine-made Remy Hair: material supplier collects fallen Hair together, put them through a machine to make cuticle in the same direction. The machine only could make 90% of hair in the same cuticle direction.
What is Non-Remy human hair?
Non–Remy human hair is hair that is collected from multiple sources that cannot guarantee the root and tip ends are traveling in the same direction. Non–Remy is sold in its raw state and also as a finished product.
What is the difference between synthetic and human hair extensions?
A major difference between synthetic and human hair is the feel and quality of the hair itself! These extensions just have a different feel and look to them, synthetic hair is known to have more of a shine and a fiber feel.
How to identify the human hair extension and non-human hair?
Choose a small strand of hair and burn it. If the hair is 100% human, it smells like a barbecue and the ashes can be twisted into powder; if not, it smells like plastic and the ashes will stay as a caking.
What is the difference between 5A, 6A, 7A, 8A, 9A 10A, and above?
Today, there are so many different types of hair extensions as well as marketing terms to quantify the quality of the hair. The (5A, 6A, 7A, 8A, 9A, 10A) grading system was created by manufacturers in China as an easy way to explain to their clients “how good the hair is.” there is not a “Universal Standard” for human hair extension grading. There is not a standard hair grade chart that you can pull up and it is accurate. To be honest, all the numbers and name to describe hair extensions is 100% marketing. What we consider our 7A hair extensions could be a 9A from another company.
Are there other types of hair extensions that can replace Weft Hair Extension?
Yes, but weft hair extensions have their own pros. They don’t need to be used with heat or glue when applied and more friendly for thick and coarse hair. Every type of hair extension has its own pros and cons. Please consider it comprehensively after consult with your hairstylist.
What is the main factor to consider when buying hair extensions?
Here are some factors you should consider when shopping for virgin hair extensions:
- Wefts: Single stitch or double stitch? Double stitch wefts should reduce shedding.
- Weight: The standard weight of sew-in hair bundles is 100 grams or about 3.5 oz. Is the bundle cheaper because it weighs less?
- 100% Human Hair: We only sell 100% human hair and think most of our clients prefer this.
- Remy or Non-Remy: You want Remy hair with the cuticles facing the same direction to reduce the chances of tangling.
- Single Donor or Multiple: Single Donor hair really only matters for a few types of hair including Indian Temple hair or possibly a unique gray hair. Is it necessary? 99.9% of the time we would say no. Some companies “claim” the hair bundle is from a single donor but I would not pay extra for it.
- Single or Double Drawn: Most human hair sold in the USA market is single-drawn hair. The cost to produce a double-drawn bundle is much higher because the shackling process of removing the shorter hairs is much more expensive during the manufacturing process. Expect to pay more for a bundle of human hair that has long hairs all the way to the tips.
- Color: Can you color the hair? The best quality virgin hair will lift all the way to a #613 Blonde. If you are not coloring the hair you might consider buying a less expensive option if available.
- Styling: Human Hair extensions generally should not have an issue with styling.
It is important you know exactly what you are buying and selling to your clients.
How Long will Hair Extension of different grades Last?
Generally speaking, human hair has a very long shelf life; however, as the hair is no longer attached to the scalp and is subject to varying degrees of care depending on the individual wearing the hair extensions, we would generally advise that the hair itself will last for 4-6 months. For some premium quality hair, it can last up to 1 year or over.
How many Hair Extensions for a Full Head?
It depends on how thick your own hair and how the look you would like to achieve it. It is a good idea to consult a professional stylist for different hair extension options. The majority of the time, if you are looking to have a lot of hair length, you’ll need more extensions to get the right amount of fullness. It’s all about getting the right amount of extensions to be personalized and fitted to your head. How many every bundle you decide to go for, always consider what works for you!
Where does your Hair Extension source from? Is your Hair Extension Ethic?
Most hair extensions hail from the world’s largest continent, Asia including various countries like India, Cambodia, and even Vietnam. Besides, some commercial hair comes from Russia and Ukraine also. China is currently the largest hair exporter.
How Hair extensions are applied to the head?
There are various ways to apply and install hair extensions. It’s most important to determine which application method is best for you based on different factors. The method you use should always be a solution for your hair needs and to help achieve the look you desire.
How to take good care of the hair extension?
We highly recommend applying a moisturizing sulfate-free and alcohol-free conditioner before and after shampooing. Sometimes, even skip the shampoo and only co-wash your extensions with conditioner! When washing, make sure to handle the extensions gently and do not scrub them vigorously. “The best way to maintain your extensions is to take care of them as you would your own hair.
When to wash your Hair Extension?
Since the hair extension doesn’t receive natural oils from the scalp as our own hair does, they don’t need to be washed as often as your own hair. As a general rule, the less you wash your extensions the longer they will last. You can use your best judgment on how often to wash them, however, we recommend only washing them once there is a lot of product build-up.
If your extensions feel like they’re becoming increasingly difficult to style, this is likely a sign that there is product build-up and they need to be washed. We recommend washing them after every 30 wears or once a month.
Will Wavy Hair Extensions Stay Wavy?
Wavy hair extensions are a great option for less maintenance and styling. The way you care for them will determine how well they will maintain their wave. Avoiding heat or chemicals can help maintain the natural wave and curl your extensions may have and cause them to disappear. It is also important to consider the type of hair wash system that you use to care for your wavy hair extensions.
Shampoos that are less likely to strip human hair extensions and their gorgeous waves will be free of sulfates. Chemicals that are just too harsh for the hair and clean too well.
To keep your extensions living their best wavy life, avoid brushing them while they air dry.
Also, avoid using a blow dryer which could cause your wavy hair extensions to become coarse once dried. Use products that help with proper detangling to avoid any unwanted knots and matting.
Conditioners that are for moisturizing, hydrating, and detangling are perfect for this type of hair extension.
Is It Difficult To Remove the Extensions?
Hair extensions should be removed by a professional not by yourself at home. Clip-in hair is an exception.
Can the Hair Extensions be worn when swimming?
Yes, you can swim, exercise, and carry out any other form of activity that you would normally do. However, it is important to remember whether you are swimming in the pool or in the sea to thoroughly rinse your hair afterward. Try to do this as soon as you can. Because you want to avoid letting any chemicals or salt particles sit on the connection points of your extensions too long. As these particles can start to weaken the bonds. Although in all honesty rinsing your hair directly after a swim should be something you do with or without extensions. As any chemical and salt particles left in your hair for a period will tend to leave your hair feeling rough and dry.
How to store your Hair Extension?
Before store your hair extension, please make sure all of the clips are closed shut if they are clip in hair extension. Brush each weft with your wide teeth Brush carefully by starting at the ends and gradually working your way up to the roots. Place the extensions in either a storage box or a storage case. Always ensure you store your extensions in a cool and dry place away from direct sunlight (like a closet, cabinet, or dresser drawer). Also, ensure your extensions are completely dry when storing to prevent mold and other bacteria from growing.
How to identify if there is any synthetic material mixed into the human hair Hair Extension?
Human hair can be heated at a higher temperature than mixed fiber or synthetic fiber. Flat iron a piece of hair to test. The maximum temperature that synthetic fiber can take is roughly 120 degrees Celsius. But human hair can withstand almost 230 degrees Celsius. Unlike synthetic fiber, human hair should not have any chemical smell when heated. Human hair and synthetic fiber burn differently. If you burn a piece of the hair product you will be able to tell which it is. Human hair will turn into ashes after burning and will have a smell of a burning feather or barbecue. But if the product is mixed with any synthetic fiber, it will melt into a hard solid and will have a strong chemical smell.

Any tips for hair extension buyer to avoid the common mistakes?
Poor quality hair. Some salons find it difficult to get good quality hair, even if it is expensive, it can still be over-processed and not long-lasting.
Bad color matching. Hair extensions that are pre-made in strands are generally one color or two colors mixed in a stripy strand, so the color match is never going to be good enough as your natural hair is multi-tonal.
Strands too large for a small section of your hair. The strand of hair must be securely placed using an appropriate amount of the client’s own hair, matching weight for the weight of the client’s natural hair.
Hair extensions not blended in and cut properly to create a new hairstyle. Inexperienced salons can just leave the extensions, but they need to be properly blended and a new haircut needs to be created.
No aftercare advice is given. Most salons do not guide their clients through how to take care of their new hair extensions and get the most out of them in terms of styling. Simple routines like tying the hair in a low pony at night and drying thoroughly at the roots, can save damage to the hair, prevent matting and help the extensions last longer.
