Hair extensions, or hair weaves, are generally used by women who have limp, short or fine hair. The extensions are long strands of hair glued to the scalp or sewn into tiny braids of the natural hair. The result is long, full, voluminous hair that lasts for months. However, with hair extensions, you must make sure that the hair tracks are not visible. Covering up the hair tracks is easy and requires only a few extra minutes in front of the mirror.
