Three Things To Look For When Buying Hair Extensions

 Today I am excited to be teaming up with UU Hair Extensions to introduce their products and to talk about what I would personally look for when shopping for hair extensions.

**Please note that this company did not send me their product to test for myself. Everything I've expressed has been with what I have assessed by looking through their products online.**

I personally love hair extensions and wear them regularly. When UU Hair Extensions contacted me and asked me to introduce their product, I wanted to measure their product against my own standards and see if it was something I would actually use. I was pleasantly impressed with what this company has to offer. So without further adieu, here are three things I look for when it comes to hair extensions. 

1. Real Human Hair: This is a big one for me. Not only does the quality of real human hair beat the quality of synthetic hair, but it looks more natural. Looking as natural as possible is key. Furthermore, you can color, cut, curl, straighten, and style it as you would your actual hair. If you take anything away from this, ALWAYS LOOK FOR REAL HUMAN HAIR! UU Hair Extensions uses 100% remy human hair in all of their products. 

2. Variety of Color and Texture: As I said before, you want your extensions to look as natural as possible. Again, if you're buying real human hair, you can always take it to your hairstylist to be matched to your actual hair, but it's even better if you can match it beforehand. Texture is important too. Many companies only offer one texture and if it's a different texture than your actual hair, it can be hard to blend in. UU Hair Extensions offer at least 17 different colors and three different textures to choose from, including Brazilian hair. You shouldn't have any problem finding the perfect match for your hair! If you are unsure about which to select, you can contact UU Hair Extensions and they will help you choose the right color and texture. 

3. Appropriate Attachment Options: How do you plan to attach your extensions? I personally like to use the clip-in method so I can take them in and out of my hair depending on my hair style or daily activities. Others prefer to have a more permanent option. UU Hair Extensions offers a variety of methods to attach your extensions including my favored clip in hair extensions. 

After reviewing this new extension company, I am intrigued! I really do think this company offers more options than many other extension companies out there. I would love to try it for myself and see if I love these extensions as much as I think I would! 

Have you ever wanted to try extensions? If yes, what would you personally look for? 

Thanks for reading!!
