Choosing the right thickness of hair extensionsfor your hair can be such a confusing task, especially if you have not picked one out before. There are so many types of the thickness of hair extensions to choose from to fit your hair.
The most common measurements of the thickness of hair extensions are grams. The most common packages are 120g, 160g, 180g, and 220g, the weight doesn't refer to the thickness of each strand of hair, but the amount of hair that is attached to each weft. That goes to say that the heavier the gram, the more hair there is.
Hairs vary in different types so we're going to help you group them to know which category you fall under.
The key to picking the right thickness of hair extensions is to know your own natural hair, its length which we've already discussed above and its density.
When we talk about hair density, we refer to the amount of hair you have per each square inch on your head. If you have little hair there, then you have a low density, and if you have lots of hair, it means you have a high density.
Next is your natural hair. Is it wavy, curly, or straight? This is important because if you have wavy hair, you don't go for straight hair extensions as they will be a bad fit irrespective of their thickness. The same applies to the rest, if you have straight hair, go for straight hair extensions.
To aid your choice, we'll be giving you the description and differentiation of the most common packages of hair extensions.
