There are a lot of options out there that don't cost nearly as much, and for women who wear human hair extensions, the use of clips, headbands and other accessories can be a lot of fun....if you know what to look for and even more important, what to avoid. Some clips can be very damaging to hair extensions, as they can pull on bonds and even cause breakage.
Stretchy cloth headbands, scarves and scrunchies top the list for hair accessories that are friendly to hair extensions. Now that we're into Winter, hats are always a popular and fashionable choice even in San Antonio. Hair accessories that don't work so well would include any type of hair comb, metal clips and non-covered hair elastics which can all cause severe breakage and weaken hair extension bonds. If you do opt for metal clips, make sure that the edges are smooth and rounded. Try not to place them where near the bonds. As a general rule of thumb, if you feel your hair pulling, reposition your hair accessory. Pulling or pinching means that your hair is being stressed.
An experienced hair extension artist can help advise you on appropriate types of hair accessories, and can help find styles that you can wear to change the look of your hair extensions. Women who have worn shorter hair for years often need help with putting their hair up once they have hair extensions put in. It may feel awkward at first, and even things others take for granted like blow dryers and flat irons can seem difficult at first. Your stylist is a great resource for tips on hair care and styling for your new hair extensions.
