HUMAN HAIR V SYNTHETIC HAIR
Can be curled or straightend with tongs or blowdryers to any style you want. Advantage is there is variety, disadvantage is that, it does not maintain the curls as long as you would want and needs more attention to look good.
They can be used over and over if well maintained and therfore there is value for money. Disadvantage is that they are generaly more expensive.
You can buy ones with whatever style you like, wether curly wavey or straight. advantage is that they will maintain this look all through and will look fresh, disadvantage is that you cant change the look and its permanent and they look rough when they wear out.
They are generaly cheaper but they can only be used Once! if you use it more than once just know It Does Not look good!
HOW DIFFERENT HAIR EXTENSIONS ARE PUT IN.
- Bonding is the most common method of hair weaving, and lasts for a few weeks. It involves gluing weft weave hair in with natural hair for added length and fullness.
- The natural hair is braided close to the head and weft weave hair is sewn into the braids. This is a variation of the bonding technique, and lasts for one to two months.
- Loose-stranded weave hair is braided into the natural hair in different styles that can stay in for several months. Braids include box braids, tree braid, micro braids and twists.
- Loose weave hair is bonded onto the natural hair in small sections with hot wax or hair glue. Infusions are very versatile and durable, lasting up to six months.
- Lace-front weaving is more like wearing a wig. The front of the wig is natural-toned mesh material that sticks along the front of the hairline to look like natural hair
