8 Reasons to buy hair extensions

8 Reasons Why You Should Buy Hair Extensions

October 21, 2018

Widely worn by women of all backgrounds for some of the reasons outlined below, hair extensions can add pizzazz to your current style or create a completely new look for you. And if you invest and buy premium hair extensions you won’t be the only person to notice the difference, guaranteed.

We asked attendees at the recent UK Black Business Show why they buy hair extensions and came up with the following fresh, new list.


  1. Be more… You!

With hair being such a personal statement and expression of one’s individuality the type of hair extensions we choose to buy can give a sense of re-affirming our beliefs about ourselves and sending a stronger message to everyone who meets us… a fuller ‘fro, sleeker strands or longer locks – what is your hair saying about you?


  1. Get a natural looking boost

There are times when your hair just does not want to play ball and lacks the desired thickness that is often associated with beautiful, healthy hair. Invest in top quality and buy hair extensions that match to your natural curl pattern to instantly boost the volume of your hair and get that body and bounce you’ve been yearning. Luxeriva Peruvian and Brazilian hair extensions blend so well with your natural hair and look great as well but you have to ensure that you are selecting the right product.

  • If your hair is straight or relaxed – buy hair extensions in body wave or straight – it’s super easy to curl so if you decide to curl your hair these will blend perfectly
  • If your hair is 3b – buy deep wave hair extensions
  • If your hair is 3c or 4a – buy kinky curly hair extensions
  • If your hair is 4b or 4c – we have some great new textures for you coming soon!


  1. Great option for busy women

If you have a hectic daily schedule then clip-in hair extensions are a perfect choice. You don’t have to spend hours in front of your mirror to get your hair right. Hair extensions can render the perfect look instantly which is why they are also great for swimmers or women who exercise regularly.


  1. Boost (or shrink) your hair length

Seen a style you want to try out but don’t have the hair length to match? Well, go ahead and do it anyway because despite your current hairstyle and length you’ll find a hair extension solution that allows you to instantly achieve that dream style. Just clip in some extensions or have a few tracks sewn in, no one need know your secret especially if you match your hair texture to that of the extensions! From a bob cut on a Monday to a long, sleek ‘do on Friday; match your hair to your social calendar! 


  1. Fearlessly style your hair exactly as you want

The best thing about hair extensions is that you’re free to style your hair as you desire without considering the usual constraints of length or potential damage to your natural hair. You can colour the extensions or try that extreme hair cut you’ve always admired; styling your hair becomes so much easier when there’s a little less at stake! Always use heat protectors when styling your human hair extensions to preserve the lifetime of the product.


  1. Experiment with colour

We love the magic of dyed hair & crazy colours! But the sad part is that even just one application of bleach and hair dyes can take a toll on the health of your natural hair, and if the after-care is inadequate your hair could start to show signs of breakage, split ends and become frizzy and dry-looking. You can prevent this damage to your own hair by wearing hair extensions that have been coloured by a professional or investing in pre-dyed hair extensions that are compatible with your skin tone and style statement.


  1. Protection from the elements!

Hair extensions enable trendy protective styles for your natural hair especially as winter approaches. In the summer longer lengths may be of concern as they may make you feel too hot, but the winter allows you to really go for it! We're not suggesting your hair should double as a scarf, just saying we recognise that every little helps!


  1. Save money

Finally, and perhaps a bit of a counter intuitive one but hair extensions can save you money as you'll be able to achieve the same WOW effect as going to the hairdressers and getting a new hair cut, colour or blow dry and once you’ve invested in them they are yours and will last over a year with the usual hair maintenance.


So these are the hair extension benefits that some of you shared with us – are there any others that haven’t been included here? Why do you buy hair extensions? Leave a comment below.

Clip-in extensions are a great way to boost the volume of your hair.

You can add clip-ins to canerowed hair but then the final result will be a thinner look (unless you use 2 packs). For the most voluminous style it's best to add 1 clip-in pack to your loose hair, canerowing or twisting away any hair that adds to much bulk (is there such a thing?!) to the style. 

Suggested install pattern: place longer widths at back and across crown of head, wit shorter widths blended into hair at the front of your head. Use your natural hair to cover the tracks
