As you regulars know, it’s my goal to grow my hair long. In that effort, I’ve made a rule for myself that I don’t use hair products with alcohols or sulfates. (This is surprisingly difficult. If you don’t believe me, start reading your ingredients lists.)
I was delighted to discover JustNatural, a brand whose products are carefully formulated using natural and organic ingredients that are designed to be more effective than other mass-produced commercial products.

You donâ€™t have to spend years patiently growing out your hair in order to get long, flowing locks. IfÂ youâ€™re interested in lengthening or adding volume to your hair, extensions can be a great way to go. ButÂ how do you decide what kind of extensions to get when there are so many popular options?
Knowing how daunting it can be to choose hair extensions, Philip James has put together a guide to theÂ five most popular types. They are:
Fusion: a method that uses melted keratin protein bonds to attach extensions to strands of yourÂ natural hair
Micro-link/Micro-cylinder: small beads are used to add hair strand by strand
Braidless sew-in: a relatively new technique in which wefts of hair are attached to natural hairÂ with thread
Skin weft/Tape extensions: a method that uses thin polyurethane strips to attach wefts ofÂ extension hair
Clip-in: extensions are attached with a small clip using this temporary technique
In order to decide which of those five types of extensions is best for your hair, you should first askÂ yourself a few questions.

If youâ€™re unsure which method your hair is most suited for, talk to your hair stylist.

However, if you want thinner hair to look fuller andÂ slightly longer, skin weft extensions may better meet your needs. Continue reading “Hair Extension Types 101” »
