What are the different types of hair extensions?

The use of extensions is very common among women, since they help to give volume and length to the hair in a few seconds. Currently, there are several types of hair extensions and, depending on the one you choose, you can wear them for more or less time.

If you have little hair density, you want to show off some reflections in your hair or you simply want to give your hair a new touch, then do not miss our new article on the different types of hair extensions that you can find at Newlacecu.

Tape in hair extensions

If you don’t want to get too complicated, tape in hair extensions are one of the best types of hair extensions since, thanks to their adhesive band, they can be placed quickly and easily.

Even so, placing them has its own, so you have to learn to do it correctly or choose to go to an expert hairdresser in the placement of extensions. The reason is that the first thing to do so that the extensions are perfect and the bands are not visible is to prepare the hair.

How to apply adhesive hair extensions?

How do you put these extensions? Making partitions in the hair, in which you have to put the extensions as if it were a sandwich. In order for them to fully adapt to your hair, the layers of hair must be thin and the invisible tape in extensions must always be placed with the help of a pick comb.

Thanks to its system, you will hardly notice that you are wearing them because they are light, very comfortable to wear and are made of natural hair, so they will integrate with your hair like a charm.

Plus, they can be reused, which means you’ll be able to enjoy your tape in ​​extensions for about a year if you take care of them properly.

Microring hair extensions

Unlike tape in ​​hair extensions, microring hair extensions are individual, making them one of the types of hair extensions that people with little or fairly straight hair tend not to use.

Also known as extensions with staples or rings, they are attached to the hair precisely with this part. For this reason, it is always advisable to make sure that the ring has a silicone interior, since if it is metallic it could damage the hair fibers.

With this system, the extensions are fixed to the hair by applying pressure, since they do not contain any type of adhesive and cannot be knotted. It is not necessary to apply heat either, although it is convenient to have some pliers to be able to squeeze the staple and thus join the hair of the extension to the natural hair.

How long do microring hair extensions last?

If you treat your hair very carefully while wearing microring hair extensions, they can be in perfect condition for an average of 5 months. At the time of removing them, they should not be discarded, since they can normally be used a couple more times.

Halo hair extensions

We continue with our article on types of hair extensions with halo hair extensions. Human halo hair extensions are not usually the best for specifics, being more used for lasting changes in hair style.

Since these are sew-in hair extensions, they are not suitable for use on people with straight or very fine hair, as the hooking system could easily be seen. Despite this small inconvenience, they are one of the most used extensions on the market, since they provide a very natural appearance thanks to their fixing system.

How many halo hair extensions do I need?

The amount of human halo hair extensions that you should purchase depends on several factors. One of them is the length of your own hair and that is, the shorter the more extensions you will have to place.

Another aspect to take into account is our race and that is that your hair type influences when using extensions. Specifically, if your origin is African, you will need between 250 and 300 grams of hair. If you are of European origin, a maximum of 150 grams or 50 grams is enough if you have long hair and do not want to add too much volume. Finally, people of the South American race.

Of course, not everything is summed up to this, and it is that you also have to take into account the size of your head, the thickness of your own hair or the effect you want to achieve, for which at Newlacecu we have the best halo hair extensions, with different hair styles.

Keratin hair extensions

Another of the types of hair extensions that we can find are keratin extensions, an option that is also very fashionable, although a series of precautions must be taken so that they do not damage our natural hair. The most important thing is to pay attention to the amount of silicone or glue that is used, since it is these types of products that can damage the hair.

How to put keratin extensions?

In the case of natural keratin hair extensions, these do require heat for placement. To do this, separate strands are taken that have a U-shaped tab, which is the part used to fix them to natural hair.

The most advisable thing is to place them about 2 centimeters from the root and to keep them in perfect condition for much longer it is necessary to follow a series of recommendations.

First of all, you should avoid ironing the area of ​​the hair where the extensions have been fixed or passing a comb or brush through that part. It is also not recommended to use shampoos with sulfates, so a good alternative to prevent the extensions from coming off is to use our sulfate-free shampoo.

If you want your keratin hair extensions to be perfect and you don’t know how to put them on, don’t hesitate to buy them at Newlacecu and go to your trusted hairdresser to put them on.

Clip in hair extensions

Clip in hair extensions are actually very similar to the halo hair extensions, except that they are always attached with a clip. The clips replace staples and rings and make it easier to place these extensions in the hair.

Unlike other extensions, human hair clip in extensions are perfect for any type of hair, even the finest and most brittle.

How to put the clip in hair extensions?

In addition, the placement of clip-in extensions is very simple, so you can do it yourself at home.
