I never realized that there are so many different ways that you can attach hair extensions. Some of the most popular items are clip in hair extensions, which are a good alternative for people who want to try a new hairstyle (and/or are unable to grow their hair long) but who want a temporary/changeable option. These small clips are unobtrusive, and they don't damage your existing hair through the use of glues or tapes.
I thought most hair extensions were artificial hair made from synthetic fibers, but that shows you how little I knew. Turns out that there's a lot of availability of extensions made from human hair, and these extensions last longer and look and move in a more natural way.
You can take care of your hair extensions like your own hair, treating them with a mild shampoo. This is a product that's been around for years now, and there are lots of options for trying different styles with different kinds of hair. Straight, curly, wavy, and everything in between--there are hair extensions out there, as I discovered on Besthairbuy.com.
