So, let’s dive deep into everything you need to know about hair extensions.

1. Clips-ins

Application Time: 5-10 minutes

Wear Time: Wear, remove, and reinstall whenever you wish

Are you a first-time hair extension user? Are you unsure how you might look with hair extensions? Clip-in Hair Extensions are the perfect option for you! Yes, these are temporary extensions that you can wear occasionally or daily! You can remove the extensions at night and reapply them the next day.

The best thing about Clip-ins is that they’re simple and quick to apply. Like Tape-in Extensions, these, too, come as individual hair pieces but with tiny, silicone-coated clips at the base of each extension.

All you need to do is section your hair and clip the extensions to your hair in rows and near the roots. Once you’ve applied all of the extensions, brush your hair to achieve a perfect blend, and you’re good to go!

The best real hair clip in extensions by Zala feature silky-soft and thick hair strands. You can pull these extensions into many different styles and always look fabulous.

2. Ponytail

Application time: 2-3 minutes

Wear Time: Apply, remove, and reapply as you please.

Ponytail Extensions are a quick, easy, and temporary method to add length and volume to your ponytail. It’s a single hair piece that you can wrap around your ponytail for extra volume and length. Zala’s Ponytail Extensions feature thick strands from top to bottom. Plus, they’re available in multiple lengths and shades.

Wondering how to apply Ponytail Extensions? Simply pull your natural hair in a ponytail, clip the extension onto the ponytail, and close the clips. Ponytail Extensions provide a simple and comfortable way to transform your look in just two or three minutes. Removing your ponytail extensions before sleeping is a good idea to prevent any damage to your natural hair.

3. Halo

Application Time: Max. 1 minute

Wear Time: Apply, remove, and reapply as you wish!

Halo Hair Extensions are a one-piece hair extension that sits on your head like a halo. Unlike Weave-ins, Tape-ins, and Clip-ins, the Halo does not attach to your hair. Instead, it has an invisible band or wire that holds it securely on your head.

This application method is the best option for thinner or fine hair. It doesn’t strain or pull your already hair strands because it doesn’t attach to your hair. Simply place the halo on your head in under a minute, pull your hair over the top to hide the wire, and there you are, ready to rock long, fuller, and bouncy hair.

What’s more, Halo extensions don’t require any long-term commitment. You can remove and reinstall it whenever you want!

4. Weave

Application Time: 4-5 hours

Wear Time: 6-8 weeks

Weaves are ideal for those with thicker and more textured hair as they require a bit more hair to be braided. The process involves sectioning your hair and braiding it close to the scalp in a specific pattern, like cornrows. Then, the hair wefts are sewn onto the braids.

This application method provides a secure and long-lasting hold that lasts up to eight weeks for thick and textured hair. You can style and wash weaves just like your natural hair. But they do require a bit more maintenance as you must be careful when washing and brushing to prevent damage to the braids and extensions.

5. Tape-ins

Application Time: 40-60 minutes

Wear Time: 6-8 weeks before they require adjustment/refitting

Tape-in Extensions come as individual hair pieces with a tape adhesive at the base of each extension. These extensions are applied by sandwiching a section of your hair between two extension pieces using the tape attached to both extensions.

This method is perfect for most hair types, including thin and thick hair, as the tape lies flat against the scalp and is virtually undetectable. The best part? It gives your locks a flowy look without any bulkiness.

Your stylist will section your hair and install each extension carefully near the roots of your hair. The tape is then pressed firmly for a better hold. This method provides a natural look because the blending happens seamlessly. Plus, it’s easy to style and maintain.

You can wash and style Tape-in Extensions just like your natural hair. But make sure to avoid applying oils and other products that contain oil near the roots of your hair, as they can cause the adhesive to break down.

Hair Extensions can be a game-changer when it comes to transforming your look. And as you can see, Zala offers a variety of extension methods to suit every need. Our products are designed to ensure a natural and seamless blend regardless of the application method.

Whether you’re looking for a temporary change or a long-term commitment, there’s an option for everyone. So, why not try hair extensions and see the difference for yourself?
