Tips For Getting Hair Extensions When You're Older

If you're getting older and dealing with thinning hair due to hormonal changes, consider getting hair extensions. Hair extensions aren't only for the young. They can give you fuller, more attractive hair at any age while looking like your natural hair. Here are some tips for getting hair extensions at an older age:

Choose Your Hair Colour

You can get gray extensions if you want, but if you prefer blonde, brown or another colour of hair, decide that first so the stylist can select extensions that will blend in perfectly. Blending in extensions of slightly different shades of colour make your hair look more natural, so taking time to get the colour just right is important.

Pick Human Or Synthetic Extensions

Your stylist may recommend the right type of hair extensions to get depending on the hairstyle you want and your budget. Human hair is often preferred because it moves like natural hair and has a more natural appearance.

Plus, it can be styled in many ways, just like natural hair. Hair extensions can also be coloured, which is an important consideration if you'll be colouring or changing your hair colour before the extensions need to be replaced.

Think About How You Wear Your Hair

Hair extensions are attached in different ways. Some methods are better than others for wearing your hair on top of your head. Let your stylist know how you wear your hair frequently so they can choose the attachment style that will be the least visible as you change your hairstyle.

In addition to changing your hairstyle to suit your mood, you can also have the extensions cut to the length you desire. You may not want very long and thick hair. Extensions are generally long, but the stylist can cut them to be short so you have thicker, short hair rather than having to add length to your style.

Choose The Attachment Method

All hair extensions need to be replaced after several weeks since your hair grows out and the extensions move away from your scalp. Some extensions wear out sooner than others, but they might cost less too. You need to compare costs, as well as how hard the extensions are on your hair. Thin hair might need different extensions than thick hair. Your stylist can walk you through all the options so the extensions won't harm your hair while retaining a natural look.

Once your extensions are in place, you can treat them like your regular hair. You can wear a variety of hairstyles and wash your hair as you normally do. The difference is in how your hair looks. Your hair will be thicker and longer if you like so it is fuller and has more bounce.

Having attractive hair is important for your self-esteem, and hair extensions are a good way to improve the appearance of your hair. Plus, they're more convenient than wearing wigs all the time.
