Different Hair Extension Brands & What to Choose
There are so many different hair extension brands out there, don’t you feel? It can be overwhelming trying to figure out which ones to use when you are spending so much money on hair. I have tried a bunch of hair extension brands and am going to share my experience with a few. Please know that this is my own experience, some of these hair extension brands might be your favorite, they work great for you, etc. but this is just how they worked for me and my experience.
*** Not all brands carry all different types of extensions hair. Also please know hair can range from about $150 per bag to $600 per bag. I currently wear 2 bags of hair. Most of the hair extension brands your stylists will need to purchase. ***
5 POPULAR HAIR EXTENSION BRANDS
Meraki hair is one of the more affordable hair extension brands. Many people love it because it is so affordable, however it didn’t hold up for me very well so I was buying it more frequently which led to paying more in the end. After about 4 months it would start to tangle really bad and even with trying the shampoo and conditioner that they recommend there still was huge knots in my extension hair. If you aren’t sure about extensions and if you are going to keep them forever or want a short term use of your hair this is a good fit for you, if you want your hair to last longer than 4 months without buying new I would try something different.
Laced Hair is what I used when my hair was ombre. I absolutely loved it and it is by far the hair I recommend over everything else. I had it for about 6 months and still could have gone longer if I would have kept the ombre look. It didn’t ever tangle, washed really well, and held it’s color the best. My only problem with it and why I don’t have it right now is because my particular color doesn’t come in stock very often so I waited awhile and just couldn’t wait any longer so I went with a different brand. My next set of hair though will be Laced Hair for sure! I also feel like Laced Hair is priced at a price that is worth the quality, but not crazy expensive which I love.
If I were to tell you one brand that is expensive and doesn’t hold up well it would be Bohyme. Their hair is by far the most expensive and held up the worst from everything I have tried. It literally fell out in handfuls daily to the point where when we took my extensions out to move them up there was bald spots on the wefts from loosing so much hair. I was highly disappointed with them especially where they are the most expensive too.
This is what I have in my hair right now and I have been happy with it. It isn’t as good as Laced Hair is, but it has held up pretty darn well. I have had my hair for about July I believe and it is still going okay. The only issue that I have had with it is that the color faded from purchase, but I also was using a purple shampoo on my natural hair so it could have easily been partly that too. These do run a little bit more than Laced Hair.
Babe hair doesn’t come in wefts or I probably would still be using it. I could use my hair for a full year with tape-in’s and it held up amazing. It never tangled, it stayed moisturized pretty well, and it didn’t fade at all. This hair was what I used for literally years and years and recommend to anyone who is getting tape in extensions!
