How to Choose the Perfect Hair Extensions

Want an extra boost in length and fullness real quick? Then extensions are the right choice for you. But all the choices are overwhelming. We get it. When it comes to something as important as your hair, you need to make sure you make the best choice for its health and texture. Hair extensions are an investment, and you want to make sure your money is well spent. We’ll tell you what you need in order to get the perfect hair extensions for you.

Human Hair is the Only Choice


Make sure you’re getting human hair when you buy extensions. Synthetic hair will matte very quickly and not last very long, and who wants to waste money? Synthetic hair also can’t take heat, so if you plan on blowing out, straightening, or curling your extensions, human hair is definitely the way to go. If you’re not sure whether the hair you’re researching is human, email the seller. It’s your right to know where they get their hair from.


Online vs. In-Store

If you’re going to buy your extensions online, make sure the website is professional, legit, and user-friendly. Don’t get scammed! Make sure there are product descriptions on the hair, and look for words such as “human hair” and “virgin hair”. Make sure they give the shelf life and maintenance instructions for the hair as well to get your money’s worth. Check out Perfect Distraction Hair Gallery's professional, legit and user-friendly website.

There are multiple advantages to buying your extensions in-store. You're able to see the hair in person and match it to your own hair to see how accurately it matches your texture, and if it's the length you're going for. You're also able to touch the hair to feel the softness and texture of it. But, the biggest perk for purchasing in store would have to be the one on one assistance you get from the expert stylists, since they can answer any questions you have that you might not be able to find online. Perfect Distraction has multiple locations to purchase your hair in person.


Matching Your Hair Texture

This is for my textured hair girls. Make sure your extensions match your natural hair texture, so the extensions look as natural as possible. You’ll be able to style and maintain it just like your natural hair. No one will be asking where you bought your hair if it looks like it grew from your scalp! Do some research to find shops that sell textured hair extensions if you want that seamless look.


Clip-In Vs. Tape-In

Recommended for: Special occasions or non-daily use. Clip-in extensions are for you if you want immediate length and fullness to your natural hair. These extensions easily snap in and out of place for a super easy application, making them the easier option. If you’re looking for extra volume you can use one pack, however, if you would like length and volume it’s suggested to use two packs for the best results. 

Recommended for: Committed hairstyles and daily use. Tape-in extensions are pre-taped wefts that are attached to your real hair in a “sandwich” like bond. Tape-ins are the more permanent alternative, which means they require more maintenance, needed every 2 to 3 weeks. Tape-ins are a better option for you if you have a more active and busy lifestyle, since they last longer. Two packs of hair are also encouraged to buy for desired fullness.
