Extending Your Curls – Tips And Tricks

Most girls and women love to use hair extensions nowadays – it gives their hair a voluminous look thanks to the extra layers they add, and they are extremely easy to use and style. However, the topic of hair extensions may be somewhat of a landmine when it comes to curly-haired girls: most hair extensions cater to straight hair, or at most, to wavy hairs. It can be quite hard to find curly hair extensions, and the best you can do is often trying to style straight hair to blend it in with your curly hair. But is this the only way out for curly-haired girls in need of extensions? The answer is yes; you do actually have some options even as a curly-haired individual. The first is basically to straighten your hair instead. This might be a viable option for some people, but the girls who love their curly hair won’t prefer this option. The other options are to treat your extensions instead, and you can pick either the temporary styling with curling irons, or instead go with perming your extensions. As you know, a perm is basically a permanent chemical treatment to hair, and to ensure that it properly curls, you will have to stick real human hair extensions.

Not to add, you will also be unable to apply perms to natural hair that has been treated with oxygen peroxide or metallic dyes, so keep these two points in mind too.Moving on, a perm is a delicate process, even more so when it involves your hair extensions. Accordingly, make sure to visit a Greenvale hair salon to have your extensions permed – it is discouraged to try and do this at home. Salon professionals will be able to give your extensions a curl that matches your natural hair best. The procedure of perming should be the first treatment hair undergoes – if the hair extensions you will be using will need to be dyed, the dyeing process will have to come after you have permed the extensions.Another point to keep in mind is that whilst perming hair extensions is a rather quick process (taking a few minutes at most), it is somewhat difficult because the extensions can be easily damaged. Accordingly, many hair salons might discourage you from perming extensions. This is why you should spend time researching a good salon that has experience in perming – for example, salons that specifically cater to either extensions, or to curly hair, are a good choice.Thus, it is possible to have curly hair extensions – only that you will have to go through more steps than the average person does to have your precious extensions!
