How to Make Your Hair Longer and Add in Volume

Every woman wants her hair to look its best. Unfortunately, hair does not always grow as fast as one would like. When a bad haircut results in hair that is shorter than a woman is used to, she can lengthen her hair and add volume without waiting for the long process of hair growth to take place. With hair extensions, a woman can add curl, highlights, and length so her hairstyle can be changed in a multitude of ways. With this information, women can learn how to use hair extensions to improve their hairstyle options.

When using clip in hair extensions, a woman can either look completely glamorous or entirely fake. How clip in extensions look entirely depends on how they are worn. To get a natural look, it is important a woman follows a few tips to ensure she will get the best look possible:

If one can afford them, virgin human hair extensions are preferred over synthetic. This high-quality hair will last much longer and will not become tangled and matted like synthetic extensions can. Though they cost more money, most women find they are well worth the cost.


It is not necessary for one to wash their extensions on a daily basis. Frequent washing can dry the hair extensions since they are no longer benefiting from the natural oils from the scalp. When washing extensions, it is important to use a shampoo that is made specifically for extensions.

One should never use heated styling appliances on synthetic hair and should limit their use on human hair extensions. Using these appliances on a regular basis can cause drying and damage to occur.

When wearing tape in hair extensions, it is crucial to avoid oily products near the scalp. These can cause the tape to lose its stickiness so the extensions end up falling out.

Learning to blend extensions in with the natural hair is one of the most important steps in achieving a natural look. Extensions should be layered underneath the natural hair to ensure they both blend together seamlessly.

For the most natural look, women should choose extensions in the range of 16 to 22 inches. Longer extensions may seem like a good idea, but they often look less natural than shorter extensions.

Using these tips will allow any woman to get the best look from her extensions. Though it can take a little time to grow accustomed to styling them, careful attention to detail will allow for a gorgeous, natural look.
