Plugs in hair, also known as extensions, are a great way to add volume, length, and texture to your hair. Extensions can be made from natural or synthetic hair and the choice depends on factors such as personal preference, budget, and lifestyle. If you’ve been thinking about getting plugs in your hair but don’t know where to start, this guide is for you.
Types of Extensions
The most common type of extension is a clip-in extension, which is easy to apply and remove as it simply clips onto your existing hair. Clip-in extensions are available in synthetic or natural hair and come in a variety of colors and lengths. These are often the least expensive option but may not last as long as other types of extensions.
Tape-in extensions are becoming increasingly popular because they look very natural and stay secure for up to 8 weeks before needing to be re-applied. Tape-in extensions can be made from synthetic or human hair and need to be professionally applied by an experienced stylist who will use special adhesive tape strips that attach the extension close to the scalp.
Sewn-in extensions are also known as weaves or braids and involve sewing the extension into cornrows that have been braided into your own hair very close to the scalp. This method has been around for many years but is often avoided due to its high maintenance requirements; sew-in extensions will require regular tightening every 4 weeks so they don’t loosen over time. Sewn-in extensions can last up to 3 months before needing replacing due their secure attachment method.
If you’re considering plugs in your hair, there are several types of extensions available based on personal preference, budget and lifestyle considerations. Clip-ins offer an affordable option with minimal commitment whereas tape-ins provide a more natural look that lasts longer but may cost more than clip ins initially. Sewn ins offer the longest-lasting solution but require more upkeep with regular tightening needed every 4 weeks if you want them to remain secure for up 3 months at a time! No matter what type you choose, make sure you find an experienced hairstylist who knows how to properly apply your chosen type of plug so it looks great while still being comfortable enough for everyday wear!
