Hair extensions are strands of artificial hair or human hair, that are gathered together as a bunch. People who have shorter hair use this as a means to extend their hair and create an illusion that their hair is long. Hair extensions are great for not only those who have shorter hair but also those who are suffering from hair loss.

Women who wear wigs can also try them out along with their wigs in order to give them both style and volume. However, the problem with extensions is that these usually do not last long — especially, if you are buying a cheap quality one. Here are some essential tips for good hair extensions care.

What is Hair Extension?

Hair extensions for women are hair styling products that are made from human hair also. They are made out of either real human hair or artificial human hair. Remy hairs are real human hair where all hair extensions are intact, running in the same direction at the time of collection. On the other hand, synthetic human hair extensions are made out of various synthetic fibers and contain no human hair at all.

Hair extensions are available in various types:

Clip-ins: These are the most affordable hair extensions available in the market. They come with clips and can be applied within minutes. All you need to do is to clip the hair extension clips to your hair and fasten it securely. This can be done within minutes without much of a hassle.

Sew-ins: These are the slightly older types of hair extensions. They are secured to the scalp by braiding the natural hair horizontally from one end to another. Then the hair extension is sewed in with the braid.

Tape-ins: Tape-in hair extensions have become a rage now. They are hair extensions that come with a two-inch thick double-sided keratin tape. The tape is secured by fastening it with the natural hair.

Glue-ins: Glue-ins hair extensions are expensive because of the work involved in the application. They are applied by melting a plastic keratin bond in the size of a grain of rice with each hair strand. The entire process can take hours and basically involves building a natural wig on the head.

Halo extensions: These are the least invasive to your roots. The hair strands are attached to a transparent string. All you need to do is to wear it around your head. People would not notice that there is a hair extension attached to the hair.

How long do Hair Extensions Last?

While good quality hair extensions for short hair can last for about a year, some have an earlier expiration date. Normally, sew-ins, tape-ins, glue-ins and halo extensions have a lifeline of nearly two months. However, if you start wearing them for a longer period of time, then you see the possible damage to your hair. It is important to pay attention to a hair extension’s price. Cheap quality extensions would not last long.

Can Hair Extensions Help Damaged Hair?

Can Hair Extensions Help Damaged Hair?

Damaged hair cannot be helped by hair extensions as they are merely for show. Hair extensions are not meant for hair restoration. They merely give an illusion that your hair is long. Hair extensions should never be worn with the aim of regaining hair back. For that you need to see a hair expert who would guide you with the specific treatments available. There are a number of treatments that are available for hair loss.

All these treatments can prove to be beneficial for hair regrowth. A consultation with a doctor is a must. However, it is also important to regrow hair naturally. Regular hair care, including brushing, oil massage and using a hair mask, can go a long way in helping hair regrow.

What are the Best Hair Extensions for your Hair?

As explained above, Remi hair makes for the best hair extensions. We at Advanced Hair Studio offer a great hair extension procedure known as Flashpoints® and use the best quality Remi human hair which is virtually undetectable.

Flashpoints® is one of the world’s most sophisticated hair extension procedures. It is a breakthrough in hair technology that will transform your dull, lifeless, fine or short hair in a matter of hours to allow you to create the look you have always wanted.

Unlike other extensions on the market, Flashpoints® are much gentler on your hair. This is because Flashpoints® uses no glues, no waxes, and no weaving, but rather a sophisticated hair extension procedure where a link of your new Flashpoints® is attached to a lock of your hair.

Best of all they are re-usable time and time again. Your new, thicker and longer hair will look so natural that nobody will be able to tell the difference. They’ll only notice how great your new hair looks.

Flashpoints® are available in a wide range of thicknesses, lengths, and colors – there are over 23 Ready Made colors to choose from, which together with further professional coloring, makes your color, style and highlighting options endless.

Essential Rules for Hair Extensions Care

If you want your hair extensions to last long, there are a few tips that you must keep in mind:

  • Hair extensions for regular use must be brushed properly to remove tangles from them. Tangles might happen because of regular use. Synthetic hair extensions are more prone to tangles than regular or normal hair. Therefore, it is imperative that after use you must brush your hair to keep it tangle-free.
  • Hair extensions, like real hair, must be washed with mild soap or shampoo. This will help you to get rid of the grime and dirt that may get stuck in the hair. Remove your hair extensions carefully and place it in a bowl of lukewarm water. Put in liquid soap and wash it thoroughly. Afterwards rinse with normal water to get rid of the soap water.
  • Blow-dry your hair extensions as water particles stuck in hair extensions may cause damage to the hair strands. Blow drying your hair will keep it dry and smooth. Each strand will remain separate.


Extensions are a nice way to change your hairstyle without cutting it altogether. Extensions are basically a styling product that can be attached with real hair strands to give them volume, length and definition. Hair strands come in a variety of shapes, sizes and types. From clip-ins to sewn-ins — the range seems staggering in nature. One can choose the style as one wants to.

Care is crucial for hair extensions to maintain longevity. Wash and rinse your hair extensions regularly to remove dirt and grime. Also, it is important to blow dry your hair extensions regularly to keep them tangle-free.

Advanced Hair Studio provides a revolutionary hair extension procedure called Flashpoints. As described above, it has various benefits and you can transform your look in a matter of hours!

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
