Are you thinking about getting a glamourous set of hair extensions, but aren’t sure how long they will last or whether they’re worth your while?
The first thing you need to know is that different hair extensions have different lifespans.
Temporary extensions such as clip-ins, are often used for special occasions as they only last a short period of time. However, as they are generally made from synthetic materials or non-cuticle hair, they can be low in quality and difficult to blend with your natural hair.
Semi-permanent hair extensions can last between 3-36 months depending on the quality of hair, the application method used to install them and your aftercare routine.
If you’re interested in getting the longest lasting hair extensions, take a look at our guide below:
What Hair Extensions Last the Longest?
To get the longest-lasting, luscious locks you’ve always desired, you need to opt for real human hair extensions over synthetic hair extensions. Real human hair extensions are generally more durable and most natural in appearance than synthetic hair extensions.
Some low quality, synthetic hair extensions have silicone applied to replicate the shine of your natural hair. After time and wear, the shininess of the hair extensions begins to dull and fade. As a result, it does not blend as nicely with your natural hair, becomes difficult to manage and often needs replacing.
Virgin Russian real human hair extensions are the most premium quality in the world. The hair has never been colour treated or chemically processed so it is the best for creating the longest-lasting and most natural looking results.
Which Installation Methods Last the Longest?
It’s essential that hair extensions are installed properly by a professional to ensure long-lasting results.
