1. What exactly is a hair extension?

The term "hair extension" encompasses various methods that allow you to lengthen or thicken your hair. In all procedures, real or synthetic hair extensions are either permanently or temporarily attached to your own hair. To ensure that hair extensions hold securely and fall naturally, your hair must have a minimum length for extensions.

2. How much does a hair extension cost?

The cost of extensions depends on the quality and quantity of the hair extension, the methods used, and the time required. While hair thickening at a salon starts at around 200 euros, professional hair extensions can range from 300 to 600 euros. To save on extension costs, you can purchase extensions from hair2heart and have them applied by a hairstylist. Opting for synthetic hair extensions also reduces the overall cost of the hair extension.

3. Which type of hair extension is the best?

The best hair extension method depends on your own hair and preferences. The quality of the hair extension, the application technique, and the maintenance of the extensions also determine your satisfaction with your new dream hair. Here's a brief overview of the advantages and disadvantages of different hair extension methods:

Bonding Extensions

Thin strands of real hair attached to your own hair using keratin and heat. They offer the longest durability but come at a higher cost.

Tape-in Extensions

Wider extensions attached to your own hair using adhesive strips. They are affordable and suitable for adding volume to fine hair.

Microring and Nanoring Extensions

Tiny metal rings used to attach extensions to your hair without heat or glue. Nanoring extensions from hair2heart are almost invisible, allowing you to style your hair freely.

Clip-in Extensions

Hair extensions, whether real or synthetic, attached to your hair with clips for special occasions. They are gentle and do not permanently alter your hair.

Hair Wefts

Wide hairpieces that can be incorporated into your hair in various ways. The weaving method is particularly popular for permanent hair extensions.

Tip: To keep the cost of bonding hair extensions low, you can purchase extensions from the hair2heart online shop and have them applied by a hairstylist.

4.What should I consider when purchasing a hair extension?

To enjoy your hair extension for a long time, it's important to prioritize high quality despite the higher cost. At hair2heart, you will find premium-quality extensions made from high-quality Remy hair that remain wonderfully smooth with proper care.

5. How long does a good hair extension last?

The longevity of a hair extension depends on the growth of your hair and the chosen method:

Bonding Extensions

Permanent extensions with bonding typically last 3 to 6 months in your hair. They need to be removed once the attachment points become visible.

Tape-in Extensions

Tape-ins can be worn as a durable hair extension for 4 to 8 weeks, depending on hair growth. They need to be removed and reattached for readjustment.

Microring or Nanoring Extensions

Permanent extensions with microrings or nanorings last 2 to 4 months. Once the attachment points become visible, they need to be removed.

Clip-in Extensions

Clip-ins are suitable for short-term hair extensions for a day or special occasion. They need to be removed at night, during sports, and while showering to avoid damaging your natural hair.

Hair Wefts

Wefts that are sewn into your hair should be removed after 6 to 8 weeks.

6. How long does my hair need to be for a hair extension?

For hair extensions to hold securely, your hair should have a certain minimum length. Very short hair poses the risk of extensions weighing down the scalp and potentially causing hair loss. A minimum length of 10 cm is recommended for a comfortable fit with hair extensions.
