The durability of hair extensions depends on the quality of hair that you choose and the type of attachment and method that you use. Permanent extensions can last up to three months whereas, temporary extensions last up to 6 or 8 weeks. With the on and off method, the longevity depends mainly on how often they are used.
The longevity of hair extensions also depends greatly on the type of extensions, the skill of the stylist and the method of application used. The sew-in and glue-in extension wefts can last as much as 3 months but they should be checked every 4-6 weeks to make sure that there are no problems developing with the scalp and that the adhesive is working well.
There are fusion (strand by strand) hair extensions that can last 3 to 5 months, tape-in hair extensions that will last 4 to 6 months, and clip-in hair extensions which are temporary and reusable.
Technology has evolved which provides for bonded and fusion hair extensions which have a very natural look to them and can last as much as 9 months with regular maintenance visits. These extension types are very expensive, ranging from hundreds to thousands of dollars, depending on the amount of hair being applied.
The truth is that your extensions and attachments will last longer if you take quality care of them. You should try running your fingers through your hair once in the morning and once at night. When going to bed, braid your hair to make sure it’s tangle-free, and you should also do this while exercising or when you think your hair might get affected by the weather. Apart from this, you should always follow your stylist’s instruction and advice if you want great looking and long lasting extensions.
