So, you’re thinking of getting additional hair—whether for hair replacement, extensions,or whatever reason, and the big question is, which hair is right for you? It’s no “I’ll have what she’s having” or eeny-meeny-miny-mo situation. It’s a big decision. One that you’ll have to live with, literally, every single moment of every day.
You’ll wake up with it, you’ll fall asleep with it, and you’ll take it with you everywhere you go. So, naturally, you want your perfect match—the puzzle-piece companion you’d be ecstatic to have tagging along on that big date, the dinner with old friends, or a fancy-schmancy black-tie event, not that embarrassing mooch you’re constantly apologizing for. We all know those kinds of people, so the metaphor makes sense.
You want any additional hair to be on your head but off your mind. You want your hair to be second nature…as in second only to your natural hair, and not by much. You need to find your hair happy place, but unfortunately these days, that can take some extra legwork.
So many hairs, so little time.
The upside of the hair replacement industry right now is that there are so many different types of hair. From synthetic hair to human hair, polyester hair to nylon hair, cyberhair to euro hair, even to options like baby hair and yak hair—just to name a few. The list goes on and on…and then rambles on some more. This upside of abundant hair options also plays the role of the downside. With so many options and no clear way to weed out the riffraff, many of us are left wandering aimlessly through the overflowing sea of hair, with no clear direction as to which way to go.
Let’s break it down.
There are many things to take into consideration when chasing down your perfect hair. You want the new hair to match your existing hair as closely as possible. This means matching not only color, but also texture and style. Blonde wants blonde. Red wants red. Purple wants purple…or whatever shade in the great spectrum of hair colors yours happens to be. Smooth and shiny hair can’t have thick and textured hair mixed in. It just won’t work. Different ethnicities have different hair textures. This must be considered as well. Matching requires the use of your sense of sight, as well as your sense of touch. Look at the hair, feel the hair, and match it as closely as possible to the hair you were blessed with as a wee baby.
Well, okay, unless you were a beautiful bald baby…but you get the point.
Once you’ve found hair that looks, feels, and styles like your own, don’t stop there. Factor in your lifestyle and how you need the hair to perform and behave.
Say you’re a swimmer. Every morning you hit the pool and back-and-forth your way through your workout. You need hair that does as well in water as you do. What if you aren’t into the curling and teasing and styling of your own hair? You just can’t be bothered with it? Or perhaps you just aren’t able to? Then you need some easy-maintenance hair that basically styles itself. Lifestyle is a very important part of the equation.
Where, oh where, is this hair?
Because there are so many different hair replacement brands and types of hair these days, the best way to cut to the chase is to go to the specialists who have a knowledge of, and an inventory of, as many hair types as possible. You cannot be satisfied with “the best match of what we have in stock.”
Your true hair-mate is out there, and you need the specialist matchmaker. A proverbial dating service of the hair-replacement industry. That all-knowing friend who knows you, understands you, and has the expertise to set you up. And set you up with something quality.
Going to a less knowledgeable salon or clinic that just partners you with whatever hair happens to be in the back room, can be disastrous. You could end up with lesser-quality hair that fades terribly, loses its style, and lasts only three months.
Now that is nowhere near a lasting commitment. You may also end up with hair that frizzes and pills up like those polyester pants from back in the day. No, thanks. You could also end up with hair that doesn’t match your lifestyle, and then you’re stuck with it. Through rain, sleet, snow, or even swimming pools, you’ll have hair that just doesn’t keep up.
