We won’t do any sugar coating today; we are aware that many people have lots of bad opinions on regarding hair extensions. Having been in this industry for decades, we have heard them all. This knowledge of why hair extensions have a bad reputation has helped us to distinguish our brand from those in the market.
Truth be told, many that have a bad opinion on hair extensions must have purchased low-quality extensions. In this article, we are going to tackle the most common reasons as to why hair extensions have a bad reputation, and how one can ensure they maximally enjoy the benefits that come with investing in the right product. By the end of this article, you shall have known how to keep away from problems associated with low-quality extensions.
- They are processed
While it may be true that some hair extensions are a manufactured product that has been processed, this does not apply to all of them. Processed hair is usually of Asian and Indian origin, and is usually coated, dyed and bleached to appear differently. The processing of this hair is what compromises its quality and integrity. As a result, the wearer may not achieve a luscious, bouncy and voluminous hair they are after.
For us, we do things in a very different way. We ensure that all wefts are created from authentic, Caucasian, virgin hair. This means the hair does not undergo any chemical treatment at all. As a result, the hair provides you a lasting look, custom made to your liking.
Unfortunately, the hair industry is full of mass-production options that have become too common. Some seller (and suppliers) even go ahead to label their products as “virgin” just to make customers fall for their tricks. One ends up buying processed hair, thinking they are buying high-quality virgin human hair. This is why you need to conduct thorough research before making a purchase.
- They look unnatural
When buying a hair extension, you obviously want it to feel and look like your natural hair. They extension should effortlessly blend in with your hair’s color and style, without giving away the fact that you have added an extension.
So how do you achieve a blended finish? Well, you might need to invest in an extension that’s custom made for you. Ready-made off the shelf extensions might not give you the natural, flawless you might be after. With our hair extensions, you can be guaranteed a seamless style that perfectly integrates with your natural look, regardless of whether you just woke up in the morning or are just from your hairdresser.
To achieve a natural look, you also need to ensure you are purchasing unprocessed hair. Factory hair pieces can never give a lasting look, because the hair tends to matt and tangle over time, distinctly separating itself from your naturals locks in the process.
- They aren’t long lasting
Let’s cut straight to the chase: installing a high-quality hair extension that’s made from legit virgin hair will serve you for years to come. Processed hair, on the other hand, will only last a couple of months. The integrity and health of the hair you are buying is a paramount aspect that determines the length of time the extension will serve you. For this reason, we always advocate for virgin human hair, because their quality has not been compromised by processing chemicals. As a result, you can be sure to have your extensions looking as new as the day they were bought – provided you show them the love they deserve.
- They are difficult to maintain
A hair extension should make your life easier, save you time and money while making you look gorgeous. High quality, unprocessed Caucasian hair should behave just like your actual tresses. Since it’s virgin, you shouldn’t experience tangling and matting when wearing it. This is why you need to invest in a good shampoo, conditioner and treatment. That’s basically all you need!
Processed hair, on the other hand, does not offer such an effortless solution. When new, they tend to look smooth and beautiful…until a few washes later. These coating chemicals wear away and you are left with hair that’s extremely hard to maintain. There’s no amount of product, no matter how expensive it is, that will make processed hair regain its initial look and feel. So, buying genuinely virgin human hair extensions is the only way to go.
- They can’t be styled as one would her natural heir
Who says so? That’s definitely not us! Our handmade wefts offer a wide variety of styling options since they are handmade. Regardless of whether you have just jumped out of the shower, have them in a braid or just styled them using heated styling tools, they will always give you a flawless look. What’s more, we help you select hair that accurately matches your natural locks, whether wavy, curly or straight.
Owning a virgin human hair extension should mean looking forward to stylish, flawless and effortless looks. However, it just doesn’t end at owning that piece. You will need to treat the extension with the same love and care as you would your natural hair. This means regular shampooing and conditioning using good quality hair products, not forgetting frequent treatments to maintain its health and moisture.
