Why Skin Weft Hair Extensions?

What is your main reason for wanting hair extensions? Do you feel that no matter how hard you try, you just can't seem to grow your hair as long as you would like it to grow? Waiting for your hair to grow can be a lot like watching paint dry. It seems like the longer you wait for it, the longer it takes. Since everyone's hair grows at a different rate, cheap extensions can help those who don't have long hair to have more hairstyling options.

Or maybe you love the length of your hair, but you wish you had twice the amount of hair. While some people are fortunate to have incredibly thick hair, many people have hair that is thin and sparse. Sometimes, thin hair occurs as a result aging, and for women who want to fix the issue of their thin hair, weft hair extensions are the answer.

Skin Weft Hair Extensions Explained.

One type of hair extensions that is gaining popularity is the skin weft variety. If you're like most people, you've probably heard of these types of extensions, but you were probably confused about what they are and how they are attached. Instead of being attached to a traditional weft, each individual hair is threaded through a thin mesh "skin" that simulates the human scalp. The skin weft method is seamless and is fairly simple to apply to the hair. When the wefts are attached to the hair, they look as if they are growing from your scalp, so many people feel that these are some of the most natural looking extensions. Not only are these types of extensions seamless, they are incredibly thin and you will forget you have them in your hair.

Clip In Hair Extensions Compared To Skin Weft Hair Extensions.

Unlike clip-in extensions, skin weft hair extensions are not as hard on your natural hair because you don't have to apply harsh glue to your hair and risk damage when you remove them. With clip in extensions, you have to remove them on a daily basis, however skin weft hair extensions can stay in your hair for 4-6 weeks. Many people prefer this method because they are extremely low maintenance, so once they are in your hair, you don't have to think about them.

Skin Weft Hair Extensions Attacment Techniques.

The process for attaching skin weft hair extensions is extremely simple. All you have to do is remove the adhesive tape from the skin weft, and press it onto a small section of the hair. Once that first part is attached, lift that hair up, including a small section of your natural hair and press the two sections of extensions together. The wefts should be pressed together in a manner that resembles Velcro. Press the two sections firmly together, and in order to add extra security, you can hold a flat iron over the tape for a few seconds. This will ensure that the tape has properly bonded to the hair.

In order to remove the extensions, simply saturate the taped area with a surgical spirit and gently remove the extensions from the hair. Once the extensions have dried, you can apply more of the tape and re-use the extensions.
