At one point or another, like me, you may have found yourself dreaming of possessing long, naturally curly hair that extends seductively down to your lower back, imagining long locks of silky smooth hair that majestically tumble down into a perfect mane of sassy sophistication and sexy style. The kind of hair that refuses to be ignored by that handsome suited passersby you see on the walk to the office each morning with the designer stubble, leather briefcase and sleeve stretching arms... ok maybe the last part was just about me.
I’m talking about the kind of hair that celebrity stars like Cameron Diaz, Taylor Swift, Naomi Campbell, Selena Gomez, Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and Demi Moore seem to be able to magic out of nowhere just in time for the right occasion.
Back in the world of reality however, we quickly realise that getting our hair to grow that long takes a lot of time and effort, not to mention the endless war against dry hair and its army of split ends and that it’s not magic the celebs use, it’s just high quality remy human hair extensions.
Unlike the synthetic hair extensions of the past, today's products look natural because they are natural and it’s become near impossible to tell if they are extensions at all. Everyone seems to be doing it, achieving the look quickly for a short time.
Most of us are aware that the celebrity stars get to have extensions more often than ordinary people because of either the roles they play or the events they need to attend. So reasons can be personal or work related either way as long as they achieve the look they want. Nevertheless, for us ordinary women to be become extraordinary we may want hair extensions simply to make us feel good, something to boost our confidence.
When considering hair extensions you must honestly assess your hair to see if it can support the hair extensions. Now what do I mean by that? It’s simple...your hair has got to be strong and healthy otherwise you could damage your hair or experience embarrassing extension loss in public. It is always good practice to go for a thorough consultation with a professional stylist and discuss your hair's health, your expectations before the installation of the extensions and pay close attention to what they have to say on post extension maintenance.
