This is a non-surgical, painless quick and safe treatment, involving bonding of human hair. It is the latest revolutionary technique from U.S.A that requires no service or follow-up. Suitable to any baldness condition in which hair units are locked through highly precise and specially designed clips that can hold and locked with 5 to 7 strands of existing hair. Since this technique is a topical and external cosmetic attachment, hence, there is no side effect. You can shampoo, color, perm, cut or style like your own hair. The new hair is natural and requires no change in lifestyle. One can get it styled to a desired effect and even swim with the hair unit on.
Hair weaving is the science of addition of hair to the scalp by weaving or braiding of already existing hair. It is also called Hair integration or Hair Intensification. Some of the natural hair is woven or braided together to act as an anchor to the hair unit.
This process involves putting a protective net over the natural hair, which has been braided in cornrows, keeping it separate from the weave. The weave is then sewn into the net, so the only thing visible is the new hairstyle. This process is considered the safest for the hair and scalp. The only downside is the tightness of the cornrows can cause minor headaches and itchiness. Sew-in weaves can range in price between $150-1,200.
This technique is practiced normally when existing hair are in sides and back only and front and crown of the scalp area is almost bald. The hair units are bonded with a U.S.-F.D.A. approved silicon compound and merged with your existing hair.
The hot fusion/bonding technique involves attaching the extensions to the natural hair using a hot waxy adhesive. The natural hair is wrapped around the extension and glued close to the roots. This method is also popular but can be very bad for your hair. Hot fusion can put your hair at great risk for breakage. This process normally starts at $300. There is also the cold fusion option, which is said to be gentler on the hair. However, this process can cost anywhere between $1,500-3,500.
The price of getting a hair weave or extension depends on the quality of the hair being used as well as the method used for putting it in. Synthetic hair is the cheapest by far but also the most likely to cause problems. For one thing, synthetic hair tends to look fake and is not durable. Putting any kind of heat on synthetic hair will cause it to melt so don’t choose this type of hair if you want to curl or style it with heated tools. For the best results, real human hair should be used. The price varies on the quality and the grade of the hair.
