Our first tip for buying quality hair extensions is to choose the type of hair extensions carefully. Hair extensions come in a variety of different hair types, which range in different shades, lengths and quality, but how do you know which hair type is the best? Look out for Remy human hair extensions, as these are classed as the highest quality of hair in the industry. This is because the hair is naturally sourced, and the cuticles all face the same direction for natural-looking hair extensions. These can also be styled and treated in the same way as you would with your own growing hair. Meanwhile, synthetic hair extensions aren’t heat friendly and already have a silicone coating on them, which eventually will fade away and remove the shine from the extensions, too.
