The use of hair extensions is fast becoming a popular solution for women who desire sporting long, shiny hair without having to wait months for their actual hair to row. Buying hair extensions is a daunting task especially for first-time shoppers. There are different types of hair extensions, so paying close attention to detail is crucial to make an excellent purchase.


For hair extension neophytes, here’s a concise guide to assist you while shopping:


  • Human hair should always be your #1 option


What you need are hair extensions that resemble your actual hair. If you were looking for a hair accessory to wear at a costume party, then by all means opt for more affordable synthetic hair extensions. But if you’re looking for a long-lasting investment, purchasing human hair extensions is ideal due to the longevity, flexibility, and versatility.


Human Hair Extensions Online (HHEO) offers a wide range of hair extensions that are made of 100% high quality human hair. They offer the largest colour options available in Australia, and they surely have something that would suit your lifestyle.



Remy hair extensions are the preferred type of hair extensions as it features both superior quality and affordability. They comprise bundled hair strands with cuticles intact and running in the same direction. With this in mind, the strands rarely tangle, thus are more manageable and can last for months or a few years when maintained properly.


  • Choose a hair extension method that suits your lifestyle


Hair extension upkeep and longevity will largely depend on your lifestyle. If you’re a social butterfly who wants to boast of a majestic mane at events and parties, you need hair extensions that are low maintenance but easy to install.


If you only want to wear hair extensions on occasions and for short periods of time, semi-permanent hair extensions such as clip in extensions should be one of your top options.


  • Hair extension that last for months


Damage is inevitable when it comes to hair extensions. However, you can prolong the life of your extensions through proper cleaning and maintenance. Avoid styling your hair often, if possible. Store hair extensions in dry and cool places to avoid damage from heat and humidity. If you are having a difficult time attaching hair extensions, it’s best to go to the salon and have stylers do the process for you!
