Hair extensions - origin matters
When deciding on hair extensions, it is important to remember that the choice of the right method is not the only thing that will affect the appearance of our hairstyle. Their origin is also extremely important. There are Slavic, European, Asian, Indian and synthetic hair extensions. They differ in many features that affect their quality and hairstyle durability. Find out which hair is the best solution for you.
Hair extensions and their country of origin
Hair extensions have been very popular for over a decade. They allow you to improve our appearance in a quick and easy way. Hair extensions can extend the length of our own hair or thicken the hairstyle. We have a variety of methods to choose from, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. It is no different in the case of the hair used for each of them. There are synthetic (i.e. artificial), Slavic, Asian and European hair extensions available on the market. Apart from their country of origin they also differ in their structure, which significantly affects their quality and durability. In the case of synthetic hair, the method of production is also important. Not all hair extensions can be chemically treated. Some are difficult to maintain and style and vary in appearance and thickness. All these features have a significant impact on the final result of hair extensions.
What kind of hair is best?
Natural hair has many more advantages over synthetic hair. The most important thing is that it can be styled like your own, meaning blow dry, use a curler or straightener. Natural hair extensions are made from human hair and their shine and great condition lasts for months as long as you take proper care of them. Certainly much longer than in the case of artificial hair, which often stops being shiny after a short time (not looking natural from the beginning) and becomes dull and dry.
Before you decide on hair extensions, choose not only the appropriate method for you together with a stylist but also check the country of origin of the hair in a given salon. Choose only the ones of the highest quality, which will guarantee the effectiveness of the treatment. It doesn't matter what you decide on: the tape-in method, the clip in method or hair extensions using heat, which will allow you to enjoy your hairstyle for months - each time their quality and durability will depend on the type of hair used for the treatment.
Slavic hair extensions
Slavic hair extensions are known worldwide as the best of all hair extensions on offer. They have a number of advantages. First of all, only those that are healthy, shiny and pleasant to the touch are used for treatment. Second of all, they are characterized by exceptional strength and durability. They also blend perfectly with our real hair. They are unnoticeable yet create a spectacular effect. They can be used for all sorts of hair extension and can also be treated like your natural hair: you can use a straightener, curler, do colouring or bleaching treatments and thus style them as you wish. Their condition will remain the same and their quality high.
Their producers use strands from Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, the Czech Republic or Slovakia, i.e. the eastern part of Europe, where women are known for their extraordinary beauty. It also influences the popularity of Slavic hair. The high quality of Slavic hair extensions is also shown by the fact that they have never been dyed or chemically treated, which makes them extremely healthy and have the best hair structure and condition. Such hair extensions are also very durable. With proper care, Slavic hair extensions can be worn for up to a year and a half when you can enjoy a beautiful and shiny hairstyle.
European hair extensions
European hair extensions come, unlike the Slavic ones, from the western part of Europe, especially Italy or Spain. They differ from the Slavic ones mainly because of the lack of a hair cuticle, which causes the hair to get tangled often. The difference also lies in their structure and shorter lifespan. What's more, they require intensive care with a variety of cosmetics such as conditioners and masks to maintain the right condition of the hair. European hair extensions may have undergone dyeing or other treatments, so you can choose from a very wide range of colours before applying them. This, however, has a huge impact on their quality - compared to the Slavic ones, they are much weaker and less durable, although they are easier to style.
Asian hair extensions
Asian hair extensions differ significantly from the European or Slavic hair in terms of structure. In particular, they are much thicker, straighter and stiffer. For this reason, they aren’t suitable for European women hair extension because the difference will be very noticeable. And the thing we want with extensions is a spectacular effect with the interference with nature invisible at first glance.
Asian hair extensions are also difficult to maintain, as they need to be constantly moisturized and cared for. They can't be dyed as well, as they will be damaged because they don't have the hair cuticle. They are recommended only for women with naturally thick hair. Among Asian hair, we can distinguish Indian hair, which has better condition, is more durable and stronger, but also won't be the best idea for English women due to its thickness. As in the case of the Asian ones, these hair extensions will be very different from the natural hair, which won't look good. They can be styled, but they aren’t suitable, for example, for colouring.
Among so many types of hair on the market, the Slavic ones stand out having superior quality in comparison to all the others. They are similar to the European ones, but their special advantages make this type of hair extensions the most popular and most frequently chosen by women from all over the world.
