Hair attachments, both human hair and synthetic made, are witnessing increased patronage in the Nigerian market. There are a variety of these products available, in form of clip-ins, tape-ins, weavon and so on. The truth is that not all the brands of hair attachments are of good quality, or look nice when worn. It is therefore imperative to be careful in making selections for hair attachments brands. Considering whether the hair is of good quality, the texture, presence of bulky wefts, and the cost price are totally important. The truth is, human hair typically cost more than synthetic strands, such that the most expensive brands are usually more authentic. On the other hand, checking the wefts of the hair bundles is necessary since most companies into hair extensions, process original human hair with chemicals, which alters the original texture of the hair, and can result in swollen weft and loosen seams, and ultimately an awful hair experience. Here are the popular brands you will find today.
