Like many women, you dream of having beautiful, smooth and long hair. But your hair grows at a rate of one centimeter a month and it is not tomorrow that your hair will be the length of those of Rapunzel.

To contradict Mother Nature, you can opt for hair extensions. Here are some tips to help you choose your extensions.

Are hair extensions made for me?

Depending on the nature of your hair, the hair stylist must adapt the extensions to avoid breakage and the loss of your real hair. If your hair is too short, you will have to wait patiently for them to regrow. A minimum length of 10 cm is required for aesthetic reasons.

Target your desires for better results

Determine the type of hair extension you want based on desired results: Do you want more volume? Give relief to your color? More length? Smooth or wavy? The installation techniques and the choice of extensions will result from these answers. Only a professional hair stylist can make the correct diagnosis.

How is the extension installed?

The extensions are placed 1 cm from your roots and fixed using different techniques. Depending on the hair salon where you plan to put your extensions, learn about the methods.

Synthetic keratin fixation

The keratin is softened and then attached to the hair. This fastening system is widely used for sweeping or length effects.

Band fixation with vegetable glue

Very common, this system is more adaptable to all the hair and takes longer. Used by many salons, to gain volume, these self-adhesive strips offer the advantage of being repositionable.

Sequence and life of an extension pose

Count between 1 hour and 3-4 hours of installation. On the maintenance side, focus on nourishing care for your extensions to last between 3 and 4 months.
