The various methods of attaching natural hair extensions completely seal them to your natural hair until you decide to remove them. You should research all these methods by reading about them and arranging consultations at several specialist salons. Then pick the method you want, choose your hairdresser accordingly, and wait for the compliments on your gorgeous new hair styles.
This will last about six weeks before the extensions need to be removed. In the meantime you can wash and style your hair as if it were all yours. Your stylists will be able to recommend the best products to use for this.
Hair Bonding or Gluing
Select this method for more temporary extensions, perhaps for a very special occasion. The extensions need to be removed using a specially designed oil-based product on the glue before you wash your hair again. You need to be sure you are not allergic to the sealant before it is used on your hair.
For extensions that will last up to six months, try the ultrasonic technique, which is often used together with hair replacement therapies following illness, or on particularly fine or thin hair. This cold-fusion method is the least likely to cause any damage to your own hair if it is in a vulnerable state. Just use the recommended products to maintain your hair extensions as well as the health of your own hair, and you will only need to deal with extension attachments twice a year.
Tiny links, coloured to match your hair or completely clear, are used to attach the extensions. These links are good with very fine and straight hair and are reusable for up to about four times.
You can clip these into your head whenever you want to wear them. For complete confidence, when you first use them, get a professional to attach these for you. In time you will become confident enough to do this successfully yourself.

There are, of course, pros and cons for using both human and synthetic hair to make extensions. But it is generally agreed that human hair in its natural state produces the best extensions, and gives the best value despite the slightly larger price tag.
Even the most expensive synthetic hair products are bulkier and heavier than human hair. They become obvious when you turn your head quickly or the wind catches it and your natural hair dances around.
Instead of having a natural hair cuticle, synthetic hair is covered with silicone, which will tangle more easily and gradually wear off with washing. This makes it feel rougher, and it will tangle and be more difficult to comb smooth. It also means its colour will fade so even if you are lucky enough to get the shade of synthetic hair to exactly match your own, it will change over time.
If you want a funky, punk style in multi-colours, synthetic hair is fine; the aim here is not for it to look natural at all. But to add natural-seeming body, length and style diversity, human hair wins every time.
Sometimes even human hair extensions have been chemically treated to change their thickness and colour. If the acids in the chemicals have scorched and removed the hair’s cuticle, it will be finished with silicon in the same way as synthetic hair, significantly reducing its useful life.
If you buy REMY virgin hair from a reputable supplier of really natural human hair extensions, you don’t need to worry about any of these problems. Depending on the way you choose to have your extensions attached, they can be reused a number of times and will keep you looking more beautiful for many months.

Now that the holidays are over, it’s back to the daily routine and the problems of finding time to fit everything into your busy life. Some days it’s even hard to get around to washing and styling your hair.
If you have a REMY virgin lace wig in a similar colour and texture to your own, it will cover your unkempt hair and most people would be none the wiser. Hair labelled REMY is real human hair that has been cut in such a careful way that the cuticle ? the outer layer that protects each strand and helps maintain its shine ? remains intact. Virgin hair retains its original colour and texture and has not been coloured or otherwise chemically treated.
Because it’s REMY virgin hair on a light cap, it’s comfortable to wear and can be treated just like your own hair. You can wash, curl or straighten it and leave it ready to wear on bad hair days or for that extra special occasion. The wisps of baby hair around the hairline make it impossible to recognise as a wig and you can always wear it with complete confidence.
Of course, if you’re an extrovert type who likes to surprise people, you can have a superb variety of looks, with REMY virgin lace wigs in different shades and textures. Your friends and colleagues will never know how you will appear when they see you next, and you could be the talk of the town, in company with celebrities like Beyonc?, who regularly sports different, but always quality, hair.
If you didn’t ask Santa for a REMY virgin lace wig for Christmas, why not treat yourself to one this January? It would be an investment you’d never regret. But take care; there are some pirates around. Just be sure that you are buying 100% genuine REMY virgin human hair.
You might even find wigs at sale prices right now. Mine are all offered with a 20% discount at the moment. Find them at http://www.divanaturalhair.co.uk/shop/category/lace_wigs/.

A bad hair day is something we all suffer from occasionally. Whether you feel your hair is too thin, too straight, too dull or just a mess that you cannot fix, a lace wig or quality hair extensions could be the answer.
If any of the following problems affect you on a day to day basis, the following tips may be of some help:
My Hair will not stay Straight
Do you spend hours in the morning with the straighteners but still end up with frizzy hair at the end of the day? This is a common problem for women all across the country, but luckily there is a simple solution: European hair extensions. The straightest hair on the market, European hair, can be woven in or clipped onto your existing hair and then coloured to match, meaning you can instantly have perfectly straight and totally natural looking hair that you have always dreamt of.
My Hair Needs Some Extra Body
Do you consider your hair to be too thin and lacking a certain degree of bounce and body? Using so called body increasing shampoos can be expensive and doesn?t really make much difference. Instead, invest in some Brazilian hair extensions. This is the perfect way to add some extra body to your hair almost instantly. A lifelong problem could be rectified in a matter of minutes.
I Need a Quality Wig for Medical Reasons
Many illnesses or unexplained conditions can result in hair loss. If you are affected, try a high density lace wig from an online lace wig supplier. They are light, easy to manage and can be created to fit your exact requirements. Make sure the lace wig you buy has a discreet hairline with natural baby hair for an absolutely authentic look.
If you suffer from any one of these problems then hair extensions or full lace wigs could be the answer. Just make sure you only use a well known hair extension supplier to guarantee that what you buy meets your expectations.

Whether you are on the lookout for new clothes or a new car, you will of course want the best. Very rarely does anyone buy something of a lesser quality than they can afford. In the hair extension industry, most customers aspire to have the best hair extensions, and usually this means Malaysian hair will be at the top of the wish list.
But why is Malaysian hair considered to be the best on the market?
One of the reasons why most reputable online hair extension suppliers will make sure they are fully stocked up on Malaysian hair extensions is because they are very long lasting and durable, making them very appealing to customers looking to pay for a top quality hair extension or lace wig that will last for well over a year. Malaysian hair represents excellent value for money as well as being the cashmere standard of the hair market.
Malaysian hair is one of the healthiest types of hair you can buy. Of course it must be genuine, human 100% REMY virgin hair to appreciate the benefits. Malaysian women take good care of their hair and the natural moisture found in it makes it constantly look glossy, shiny and free from frizz. Make sure you only use a UK based hair extension supplier to guarantee the hair you are buying is genuine Malaysian hair. You should be able to easily tell if it is not.
Not only will Malaysian hair look totally natural once it is woven into your hair, but it is also extremely versatile. You can cut, colour and style it in a variety of ways or create your own look with the help of your stylist. Try to match the hair extensions to your own hair colour as best you can for the ultimate natural look, but if colouring is needed Malaysian hair does work well with the manufactured colours on the market.
If you want the best hair extensions it is not necessary to pay hundreds upon hundreds of pounds. Some online hair extension suppliers can provide you with genuine and first class Malaysian hair at affordable prices, so make sure these avenues are explored before you buy.
