How to choose the best hair method extensions? There are so many methods and types to choose from, but what is the best type for you. How much will they cost, and how long will they last you? These are all the questions going through your head when choosing a new set of hair extensions.
Hair extensions are an investment, the better quality you buy the longer they last and the more natural they look. After all, that is the point of hair extensions. It is always better to invest in real hair extensions like CHIC hair extensions, who sell 100% human hair extensions online in New Zealand. As even the best synthetic extensions do not look as natural as the real deal. But it is important to be educated about the types available on the market so you have the right information to choose the best method to achieve the look you are going for in your budget.
1. Tape-in hair extensions
Tape-in hair extensions are wefts of hair attached to sections of your own hair using a double- or single-sided tape. This is a great option for those with fine or thin hair, as the tape is virtually undetectable. Avoid silicone or oil-based products at the root of the hair to prevent the tape from slipping. The extensions can be reused, and application is very short (around one hour). But they do not last as long as some of the other types on the market only lasting 6-8 weeks, as they cannot be removed so are worm daily.
2. Sew in hair extensions/weaves
Weave or sew in hair extensions are installed through creating a horizontal cornrow in the hair then sewing your hair extension into it with the help of a needle and cotton thread. These are popular as they do not require any glue or heat to be applied so reduce the damage done to your hair. They are also a more long-term solution, lasting up to 3 months if properly cared for. They look very natural which makes them a popular option for those who can pull them off. But in order to pull them off you need to have very thick hair naturally to hide the weaves.

3. Clip in hair extensions
Clip-in hair extensions are the best option for anyone who wants longer hair within minutes. They are very fast and easy to install only taking 5 to 10 minutes. Clip in extensions are made up of wefts of hair that come with clips attached to them at the top. To install them all you need to do is clip them on right at the roots of your hair. They are very popular due to the ease of installation and removal meaning they are easy to use as well as you can easily change styles for different occasions. Although they are more of a temporary solution as they cannot be left in overnight or for extended period of time as the clips may damage your own hair.
4. Pre-bonded hair extensions
Pre-bonded hair extensions are attached to the hair using keratin bonds at the tip of the extension which are attached with a little heated tool. These are extremely popular and look great, but require significant upkeep to keep them looking at their best. Although if well maintained they can last for 3-5 months so are definitely worth the money. But to get the best value out of them you need to be very careful with how you clean and care for these, as they can easily detach. Main care tips are to avoid oil based hair products and not to over style your hair.
5. Micro ring hair extensions
Micro ring hair extensions come in the form of small bundles of hair that are looped through small sections of your natural hair. The extension is then secured by a metal bead clamped around it with the help of a pair of pliers. A more convenient version of these extensions are the micro loop extensions that come attached with a loop and bead beforehand. Hence, they do not require a loop tool for attachment. They are reasonably long lasting when properly cared for lasting around 4 months.
