A. There is hope! Here’s the skinny on extensions: Bonded extensions, like SoCap USA keratin bonds, last the longest (3-6 months), but the key to achieving natural looking results is to have them applied specifically under the back crown and below the parietal ridge—the round part of your head above your ears. For a more temporary fix you can also choose to have extensions glued onto your natural hair. They usually last one to two weeks and the placement is the same as the bonded variety. Keep in mind, though, they require more maintenance due to the fact they have to be applied and removed twice a month. An even lower maintenance, and quicker, option is clip-in extensions that you can attach by yourself at home and place exactly where you need them most—which explains why they are a major trend right now.
