How Many Grams of Hair Extensions for Full Head?

How Many Grams of Hair Extensions do you need for a Full Head?

The amount of hair extensions required to do a full head of hair extensions can differ from brand to brand. The reason for this is that the hair extensions quality is a factor to take into account, the better the hair extensions quality, the more hair you will need.

Why do you need More Better Quality Hair?

Higher quality hair extensions are dense, heavy and have a luxurious feel to them. Whereas lower quality hair extensions are light, dry and as a result, have more volume.
You would be forgiven for opting for the cheaper brands. However in the long term, cheaper hair are prone to tangling, matting and in the long term, cost more.

So What is the Minimum Amount of Hair Extensions Required?

Clip in hair extensions at supermodelhair.com are packaged to contain a full head in each pack, so we will just concentrate on the hair extension weaves.

Dip Dye Clip In Hair Extensions

Dip Dye Clip In Hair Extensions

Clip in hair extensions have recently taken on a new popular fashionable colour! We saw what happened to colour 32 in clip in hair extensions when Cheryl Cole came to our screens on shows like Xfactor, sales of the hair extensions colour 32 soared! So what is this colour we speak of? Dip Dye, its not a specific colour, it describes the colour combination.
Dip Dye clip in hair extensions are hair extensions that have the base colour at the top and typically a lighter colour at the bottom. I have heard them also being referred to as Ombre Hair Extensions. There isn’t much of a difference, but they appear to be more gradual than dip dye extensions.

Dying Your Clip In Hair Extensions

We have noticed a lot of companies now selling dip dye clip in hair extensions. However we have seen quite a few DIY tutorials on how to achieve the same effect using your current hair extensions. Dip Dye hair extensions tutorials such as the Ohh So Glam: How to Dip Dye Your Hair Extensions provide excellent ways to easily create the dip dye look. She used our SuperModel Clip In Hair Extensions as they are made from 100% human hair. It is always advised to do a strand test first before dying your hair extensions though as they tend to be unpredictable being an organic product.

Looking after your clip in hair extensions is vital, it is actually the most important part of having hair extensions. It is always advised to purchase specialised shampoos and conditioners designed for hair extensions rather just using high street brands. Even though the hair is human hair, it does not mean it will react the same as your own, as the hair extensions are not getting the natural nutrients that it usually gets while it is still attached to the head. Our Hair Extensions Shampoo and Conditioner Aftercare Set by Hairaisers have proven to be a fantastic product to help prolong hair extension life.
