The Benefits of Hair Extensions

Updated on December 29, 2012

A lot of people don't understand the value of hair extensions. These people consider artificial hair as totally unnecessary, meant only to soothe a frivolous woman's vanity. Well, vanity aside, there are certainly a lot of benefits that you can get from wearing hair extensions. They are well worth the investment if ever you choose to take advantage of them.

Just what are these benefits you can get from hair extensions?

  1. Hair extensions add volume to hair. If you're one of those women who are born with thin hair and are forever despairing of your hair's lack of volume, you should try out having extensions woven into your locks. The extensions will fluff out your natural hair and give it the life and bounce it previously lacked.
  2. Hair extensions hide damaged hair. Damaged hair is ugly hair. However, with artificial hair integrations, you don't have to suffer through bad hair days brought about by your damaged hair even as you wait for your hair to repair itself. Your artificial hair will hide your natural hair until it has had a chance to grow out and become restored to its former glory.
  3. Hair extensions allow you to enjoy long hair when you want it. Lots of women want long hair, but not everyone has the patience to wait for their hair to grow. After all, it can take months, even years for hair to grow up to a certain length. With artificial hair, though, you can have long hair whenever you fancy having long hair. Once you get tired of having long hair, you can simply ask your hairdresser to remove your extensions.
  4. Hair extensions let you play with your hairstyle. So let's say you want a fancy hairdo for a special event, but you don't feel up to wearing your hair the same way after this event. Instead of getting your hair cut or permed, you can wear clip-in hair extensions. Just have your hairdresser attach the clip-ins to your natural hair before the event and then remove them afterwards. You can even put in these clip-in extensions by yourself if you want to, without the help of your hairdresser.
  5. Hair extensions allow your hair to rest between chemical treatments. If you've noticed that your natural hair is showing signs of damage or exhaustion from coloring or perming or whatever chemical treatments you subject it to, you can give it a rest by wearing hair extensions. You can have your stylist prepare these extensions the way you normally do with your hair and then have these extensions attached to your hair.

Perhaps the biggest advantage you can get out of wearing hair extensions is a boost to your self-confidence. Not all women feel secure about the way they look. Maybe if you try to improve your appearance with the use of hair extensions, you'd feel better about yourself and start changing your outlook about your life and yourself. The desire to look beautiful is not all about vanity, after all.
