Finding the Best Hair Extension for You: A Comprehensive Guide

If you're looking for a way to enhance your natural hair or try out a new look, hair extensions can be a great option. But with so many types and brands of hair extensions on the market, it can be overwhelming to know where to start. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you find the best hair extension for you.

 ( 1 ) Determine Your Hair Type and Needs

The first step in finding the best hair extension for you is to determine your hair type and needs.

  • Are you looking for length, volume, or both?
  • Do you have fine or thick hair?
  • Is your hair naturally straight or curly?

Answering these questions will help you narrow down the type of hair extension that will work best for you.

For example, if you have fine hair, clip-in hair extensions may not be the best option as they are heavy and weigh down your hair and pull at the root.If you have thick hair, clip-in, tape-in or sew-in extensions may be acceptable as they better handle the weight of the extension though the aggressive installation method can pull on your natural hair, feel tight, and cause small red bumps to appear on the scalp, injuring the hair follicle and stifling future hair growth.

 ( 2 ) Determine Your Hair Type and Needs

Once you have determined your hair type and needs, it's time to research different types of hair extensions. Some popular types include clip-in, tape-in, sew-in, micro link, and fusion extensions. Soft Bond Strands® are new to the market and fast becoming an ideal process to put in hair extensions.

Clip-in extensions are easy to apply and remove. Tape-in extensions are semi-permanent and applied using a special adhesive. Sew-in extensions involve sewing the extensions onto your natural hair. Micro link extensions use small metal beads to attach the extensions to your hair, while fusion extensions use a keratin bond that is attached to your hair using a heat tool. Soft Bond Strands®, new to the market, do not use glue or metal to attach but is not yet available in many locations.

Each type of extension has its pros and cons, so it's important to research each type and decide which one is best for you based on your hair type and needs.

 Soft Bond Strands® extension process is specifically designed to be gentle and easy to handle for those with thin, limp, chemically processed, damaged, or broken hair. Unlike other extension methods that can be harsh on the hair and scalp, Soft Bond Strands® uses a natural and non-toxic bonding agent.

 ( 3 ) Consider the Quality of the Hair

The quality of the hair used in hair extensions is crucial to achieving a natural and seamless look. Look for hair extensions made from 100% human hair, as this will blend in seamlessly with your natural hair and can be styled just like your natural hair.

When looking for the best hair extension for you, it is essential to consider the origin of the hair. As mentioned, some of the highest quality hair extensions come from countries such as India, Brazil, and Russia. Hair from these regions is generally considered to be of premium quality, as it is often untreated and unprocessed, and is sourced from donors with healthy, full hair.

It's important to note that not all hair extensions labeled as "Remy" or "virgin" are actually made from high-quality hair. Some manufacturers use synthetic or low-quality hair and mislabel it as Remy or virgin hair to make it appear more valuable. Therefore, it is crucial to purchase hair extensions from reputable and trustworthy suppliers.

At WEST COAST HAIR® we pride ourselves on using only the highest quality 100% human hair for our hair extensions. We believe that our clients deserve nothing but the best, which is why we source our hair from reputable suppliers who share our commitment to quality.

One of the many benefits of the Soft Bond Strands® extension process used at WEST COAST HAIR® is that it allows our team of specialists to custom mix and blend colors to achieve the perfect natural-looking color results for our clients.

We understand that finding the right color match for your hair extensions can be a daunting task, especially if you have unique or hard-to-match hair tones. That's why our team takes the time to carefully analyze your natural hair color and texture and work with you to create a customized color blend that seamlessly integrates with your existing hair.

At WEST COAST HAIR®, we understand that each client's hair is unique, which is why we offer a wide range of extension lengths, colors, and textures to choose from.

 ( 4 ) Consider the Cost and Maintenance

Hair extensions can be a significant investment, so it's important to consider the cost and maintenance before making a decision. High-quality hair extensions can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars, depending on the type and length of the extensions.

It's also important to consider the maintenance required for your chosen type of hair extension. Some types require regular salon visits for maintenance, while others can be maintained at home. Consider the time and cost required for maintenance when choosing the best hair extension for you.

At WEST COAST HAIR®, we believe that education and knowledge are key to maintaining your Soft Bond Strands® hair extensions. That's why we take the time to provide our clients with the information and resources they need to properly care for their extensions.

 ( 5 ) Choose a Reputable Brand or Supplier

When purchasing hair extensions, it's important to choose a reputable brand or supplier. Look for a company that has positive reviews, offers a range of hair extension types and colors, and provides excellent customer service.

If you're getting your hair extensions installed at a salon, make sure the stylist is experienced in installing the type of hair extensions you have chosen. Be sure ask for references and view multiple before and after photos of previous clients.

WEST COAST HAIR® has a proven track record of satisfied clients, with hundreds of positive reviews and countless before-and-after pictures showcasing the stunning transformations that their extensions have made. These pictures are a testament to the quality of their work and the satisfaction of their clients.

Clients rave about the natural look and feel of the extensions, the long-lasting hold, and the ease of maintenance. Many clients return to WEST COAST HAIR® for repeat extension services, which speaks to the quality and effectiveness of their work.
