    I have very, very curly hair and I purchased curly extensions, of course. However, even if the untrained eye doesn’t see the difference, I do and the curls are too loose for my hair. My friends say they can’t notice the difference but my hair is too curly for these extensions. Any idea or piece of advice?

    Unfortunately, I’m in the same situation. I have curly hair and if that wasn’t enough, it’s also very fine. I haven’t been able to find something either. The problem was texture and the idea was that I didn’t want to spend more than $1,500 just to get professional help. I tried different textures, some healthy, some cheap, some easy to curl but it never turned out the way I wanted, because my hair was always curlier than the extensions.

    There’s another way, although it’s more expensive. You can check when a person wants to sell her hair, see if it’s the same texture as yours and that’s it. Simple, yet expensive.

    But do you know how much it costs?

    No idea, really. That’s all I know; that there is such a website and I assume it is impossible not to find a type of hair with your texture.

    You can buy hair and chemically curl it. I have no idea what that means, but this is what I’ve heard. So you could find more about this and try it. Sounds difficult but since you don’t have other choice, I don’t see the alternative.

    I believe that means to put a perm in the hair extensions. I never thought of this! What a great idea. That will be pretty expensive, too but I think it’s better and faster than waiting for someone with hair like mine to sell her tresses.

    And I think it’s also cheaper.

    It probably is. I will try this option and hope that people won’t stare at me when I go in a a salon and ask the hair stylist to get a perm for my hair extensions.

    Depending upon how much money you are willing to spend you can pre-order hair which is perfectly matched to your texture. If the hair arrives and doesn’t match your desired texture, it can be chemically treated to exactly match your curl.

    Another option is to have individuals strands strategically added in a manner as to perfectly blend with your natural texture.

    When it comes to hair extensions any type of hair, in any length, color or type can be pre-ordered or reformulated to match your hair. Of course the most precise your requirements are, the more expensive your extensions will be.

    As an example, people with naturally fine or thin hair who want extensions which are fine, often discover that European hair is more ideal then hair from the Orient. Depending upon the origin of the hair, the cost can be a lot higher or lower.

    All of these factors need to be covered before you put down a deposit or decide upon an extensionist to work with. I have seen some of the most gorgeous heads of full extensions which were perfectly matched to the person’s natural curls.

    Just take your time, do your homework and don’t settle for anything less than what you will love. Remember, you are the one who will be walking around with the hair attached to your head. No one else.
