Aventura Hair Extensions: the new “it” thing
It’s imperative to look and feel your best on a daily basis. Our hair plays a major role in our daily vibe towards the outside world. If your hair is thin, brittle, or just plain damaged from past experiences, getting hair extensions is a great way to spice up your overall look without breaking the bank.

SO HOW DO THEY WORK?
Hair extensions are a way of bonding real or synthetic hair to your natural hair at the root. Extensions are usually attached in horizontal rows to the underneath sections of the hair, close to the scalp, so the top sections of the natural hair falls to cover the bonds.
Extensions using real hair are glued to the natural hair with an adhesive. This method can be problematic for people who don’t like the idea of someone else’s hair being attached to their own. It is also a lot more expensive than other options.
However, extensions using real hair can then be styled and treated as the person’s own after application. The other method is called mono-fibre – a type of plastic – which is very lightweight. It is attached by plaiting together small sections of hair and anchoring them to the root with a heat seal. However, this system does not lend itself to styling with hot appliances such as flat irons and tongs, as the plastic simply melts on contact.
Extensions can look great when done properly and looked after well, though unfortunately they can be done by someone who is unqualified, and that is when damage to your hair can occur.
HOW LONG DO THEY LAST?
Depending on the type of extension, they can last up to three months.
WHAT CAN GO WRONG?
There are several things that can go wrong, which is why it is important that you get extensions done by a reputable company. First, bad extensions can lead to traction alopecia, which is when the bonds rip out your natural hair at the root. This is not a good look.
Second, if the hair has been badly blended with your natural hair and then cut, it can lead to a mermaid look, where you have stringy extensions hanging down and the baseline of your actual hair is clearly visible. Extensions should be cut and styled to blend seamlessly with your own hair. The process normally takes several hours.
It’s advisable that when you no longer want the extensions, they are removed in the salon to minimize any damage. Always choose your potential extensions salon carefully, to ensure you have a qualified stylist. As with any type of beauty treatment or service, always do your research to find the best person for the job.
