10 Things You Should Know Before Getting Extensions


Are you interested in extensions? Maybe you are considering extensions but don't know where to start. There are a few things everyone should know before getting extensions! We've compiled the ten biggest things you should know before you make your decision one way or another. 

Before Getting Extensions

1. Variety Of Extensions

There are a wide variety of extensions available and new ones every year. Different extensions serve different purposes and come with their own pros and cons. It is essential to do your research and ask your stylist which extension they recommend so you can make the decision you are happy with. At Hairlaya, we offer several extension types, including hand-tied wefts, tape-in extensions, and our new Hybrid extensions. They all serve a role and specific purpose.

2. Extra Care And Maintenance

While extensions attempt to be as natural as possible, they will require extra care and maintenance. As with all installations, extensions will have their own protocol. In the case of Hairlaya, our extensions usually require maintenance every 6-8 weeks for best results. There are also daily practices that should be utilized and or avoided for maximum hair health. You can ask your stylist or read our blog for more information regarding extension care.

3. Lifelike Extensions Exist

Extensions don't have to and shouldn't look fake or unnatural. The era of unnatural extensions is a thing of the past! Choosing the right quality extension paired with an expert stylist is sure to bring outstanding, natural results. Your extensions shouldn't be noticed and will come across as natural, seamless, and beautiful. Now you can enjoy complete peace of mind and increased confidence with your newfound look. Look your best without anyone knowing you are wearing extensions!

4. Extensions Serve Multiple Purposes

Extensions do much more than simply adding length. Extensions serve many roles, such as adding volume and opening a new world of possibilities. Having extra length and/or volume can help you experience the styles of hair you always dreamed of but count pull off due to inadequate length/volume. Extensions help maximize your natural hair and empower you with options.

5. Quality Costs More

As with everything, you get what you pay for. Going for the most inexpensive extension and stylist probably won't lead to the results you are looking for. It is crucial to search and find a quality extension and reputable stylist so you get the results you love the first time. Paying a little more upfront will lead to huge benefits, including looks, aesthetics, comfort, longevity, and more.

6. Extension Technology Is Improving

Many negative outlooks of extensions are due to old and outdated models. Modern extensions are highly innovative and continually improve, as shown with the hybrid extension. The Hairlaya Hybrid extension is the most advanced extension providing the ultimate blend of benefits you are sure to love. Don't let the past dictate your view on extensions; take a look at modern extensions to see how far they've come along.

7. Hair Extensions Can And Should Be Comfortable

Don't let anyone tell you extensions have to be uncomfortable! Extensions can and should feel just like your normal hair. This is especially true with modern extensions like hand-tied wefts and hybrid extensions, which display extreme comfort throughout all your daily activities. You can comfortably wear them to the gym, special events, and beach while sleeping and forget they are even there.

8. Extensions Can And Should Be Damage Free

The last thing you want is to damage your hair. Extensions shouldn't damage your hair in any way. This includes throughout the installation process and while you wear them. Hairlaya uses safe extensions that do not use harmful toxins, extreme heat, adhesives or harmful installation procedures. Our extensions are also designed to distribute the weight and minimize pull on your natural hair.

9. Extensions Come With Certain Precautions

Just like with your natural hair, there are certain precautions you should take with extensions. You want to be safe and incorporate healthy daily routines and special routines when you go to the beach, pool, etc. We have several articles discussing how to best care for and treat your extensions and what to do in certain events, like going to the beach.

10. Extensions Can Improve The Health Of Your Hair

Not only should extensions be damage-free, but they should also promote your hair's health. This is especially true if you frequently use heat tools and are prone to split ends. We believe extensions should improve your hair health, look, and our extensions reflect that!

As you can see, there are a lot of things to consider with extensions. The right extension and stylist can be a huge improvement to your life and help add length, volume, confidence, and so much more! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out or check out our blog for more helpful posts.
