What are the best hair extensions? Our guide to natural looking hair extensions
What are the best hair extensions?
While Remy hair is universally recognised as the best option for hair extensions when it comes to technique there are many competing options on the market. Here at Kia Knots we’ve developed our very own technique that is based on the Brazilian knots technique. Our technique doesn’t damage the natural hair and doesn’t involve chemicals, heat, metal, or any other materials that could prevent your hair from staying healthy.
There are many hair extension techniques used in salons but most cause unnecessary damage to the hair by using glue, metal, tape, or weaves to attach the extensions to your hair. All these techniques can harm your hair with some leading to permanent damage to your hair follicles. The Kia Knots technique uses elasticated thread to tie the extension into your hair making sure that it is not too tight or installed too close to the scalp.
Do hair extensions damage your hair?
How long do hair extensions last?
Want to know how long your hair extensions will last? Well, it all depends on the type of extension you have. If you choose Kia Knots, then your extensions will last up to 12 months providing you have them refitted every 3 – 4 months. The maintenance process involves removing your knots before refitting them closer to your scalp, but not too close.
For other techniques the maintenance process is a lot more intensive as extensions can become damaged from heat, chemicals, and glues. Damage is also done to your existing hair which means fitting new extensions may not be possible and you may need to wait for your hair to grow out before you are able to have extensions fitted again.
