Today we  takes a look at the different types of hair extensions available, helping you determine the type of hair extensions you should purchase and rock your world.

Human Hair Extensions

Human hair extensions are made from real human hair. However, numerous scams have emerged marketing human hair but really turning out to be a synthetic mix. As such, if you want human hair extensions, ensure it is 100% real and traceable human hair.

1. Hair Extensions

Synthetic hair extensions are made from a whole variety of synthetic materials. Compared to natural extensions, synthetic hair extensions are more affordable. What makes synthetic extensions great is they are available in a greater range of styles, colors and textures thereby making you look beautiful.

2. Sew-In Extensions

Sew-in extensions look and feel like natural hair, making it the ideal choice for women who want to sport a different hair style without waiting for their hair to grow. They provide women with the opportunity to flaunt the right hair style while their own hair continues to grow. The most popular styles in the market are silky straight, loose wave, body wave, kinky curly and deep wave.

If you want your hair to recover from damge caused by chemicals and breakage, then give this a try to make them grow back.

3. Clip-In Extensions

Clip-in extensions are the easiest to add and remove. However, this type is also considered the most temporary of every type. As such, they are a great way for teens to experiment with before selecting more permanent versions. This type of extension is fantastic if you require a new hairstyle quickly and for a little while. Just like any other type, they are available in both the human hair and synthetic varieties. They are easy to maintain and do not cause any damage to your hair.

4. Tape-In Extensions

This is easy to apply and take off., they are lightweight, easy to maintain and reusable than clip-in extensions. Looking at users experiences and reviews across the internet, it’s easy to see why they have become so popular.

Tape-in extensions are a great choice for active women who love working out. This is because the bonds stay in, despite all the sweat, oil, and dirt build up in your hair. This makes them safe for use in the gym as well because the weight is distributed more evenly. Moreover, the thin panels are soft and flat against your scalp, offering superior comfort.

5. Pre-Bonded Extensions

Pre-bonded hair extensions are fused to your natural hair with the help of keratin bonds, plant/petroleum adhesives and a hot tool. They have become very popular because of the natural look and feel provided although they require maintenance.

Once you wear these extensions in your hair, you have to practice a certain degree of caution when using oils, conditioners, and heat styling tools because they may damage or loosen the bonds in your hair. As such, most women choose 100% natural pre-bonded extensions. They look natural and can withstand significantly more heat than their synthetic counterparts.

6. Micro Link Extensions

These use tiny plastic rings that match your hair’s color to bind your hair with the hair extensions. Because these extensions do not require any heat, they minimize the damage caused to your hair because of it. This lets you attain a natural look without any damage. However, they may become rather tricky to add or remove. In fact, while they are easy to install and remove, they do suffer issues such as slippage. The micro links may occasionally slip down your hair and need to be moved back up.


Buying hair extensions can be a fun and creative way for a woman to experiment with her hair, try a new length, or test out new styles. Hair extensions of any colour, texture, and tone can be found on providing a woman with long-term or short-term solutions. Anything from clip-on extensions to extensions that are attached to natural hair for the long term is an option a woman can consider when shopping for these useful hair accessories on Women are well advised to take into account the health and condition of their own hair as they consider the different options.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2017: 5 Simple Lifestyle Changes That Boost Prevention

This month at, we celebrate women. October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which aims to increase knowledge of how we can help beat one of the most common cancers in women.

As more and more research focuses on what we can do to reduce our risk of the disease, here are five everyday lifestyle changes that women can make to their lifestyles.

Currently, breast cancer is the leading type of cancer among women, replacing cervical cancer. Here’s what you can do to cut your risks:

Shun Sedentary Lifestyle And Get Moving And Exercise More

A US study which looked at 1.4 million participants found that a higher level of physical activity could lower the risk of 13 different types of cancers.

Moving is seen to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer by 10%.

A Canadian research team also found that doubling the amount of weekly physical activity from 150 to 300 minutes could lower the risk of breast cancer in postmenopausal women by significantly reducing body fat, especially in obese women.

Eat More Fruit And Vegetables

A large-scale US study found that high consumption of fruit during adolescence - 2.9 servings per day - was associated with around a 25% lower risk of breast cancer in adolescent middle age compared to a low consumption of fruit - 0.5 servings per day.

In addition, the results also suggested that the combination of two servings per week of apples, bananas and grapes as well as two servings per week of oranges and kale during adolescence was significantly associated with a reduced breast cancer risk as teen girls grow into adulthood.

Cut Down On Saturated Or Bad Fat

 A recent research conducted and published last year found that consuming large amounts of saturated “bad” fat or low amounts of mono- and polyunsaturated “good” fats during adolescence is linked to higher breast density in young adulthood, a strong risk factor for developing breast cancer as woman age.

Saturated “bad” fats are commonly found in meat and dairy products like fatty meats, cheese and butter and the greatest killer of all, Margerine. Nuts, olive oil and avocado are among common sources of monounsaturated “good” fats. Margerine is no food at all, it’s just hydrogenated extremely hot oil, cooled and bleached.

Get Regular Dental Checks

After following more than 65,000 female participants aged 54 to 86 for an average of eight years, a US study found that a history of gum disease was associated with a 14% higher risk of developing any cancer and a “significantly higher risk” of breast cancer.

Consume a lot of fiber-rich foods.

A research found that people with gum disease face a higher risk of certain cancers. One theory is that harmful pathogens could be carried in saliva and dental plaque, or through diseased gum tissues into the blood circulation. So to mitigate this, eat and fill up on fiber foods.

A large-scale American study looking at 90,534 women found that high intake of fiber during adolescence, especially from fruit and vegetables, helps to reduce the risk of developing premenopausal breast cancer.

The research found that young women who ate more fiber in early adulthood had a 12 to 19% lower risk of developing breast cancer than those who ate much less or no dietary fiber.

High fiber intake during teenage years was found to reduce the overall risk of breast cancer by 16% and cut the risk of premenopausal breast cancer by 24%.

Foods with the highest levels of fiber include kidney beans, lentils, wholegrain cereals, fruit and green vegetables.
