To extend hair, add volume, or cover up a terrible haircut, hair extensions are strands of real or synthetic hair that are firmly connected to the scalp.

3. How to build at-home hair extensions

Although there are many different kinds of hair extensions, our goal today is to demonstrate how to construct wigs at home.

3.1. Prepare

The following is a list of the tools and materials required to manufacture wigs:

Hairy head (mannequin head)

  • Wig support
  • Wavy cap
  • Thread with a needle
  • A comb for hair and a wig
  • Scissors for sewing
  • Bobby pins
  • A wig hat with mesh net
  • Clumps of hair

3.2. How to make a wig at home

3.2.1. Select your hair type and lace cap

Remember that the lace cap should match the hue and general style of your head, so stay away from anything with patterned stitching. Your wig may have whatever type of hair you choose, but it’s usually a good idea to get high-quality hair so you can keep it for a long time.

3.2.2. Make the Wig Foundation a reality

Place the mannequin head on the wig stand, gently steady it, then put the net cap on it. For further security, add an elastic strap to the end of the cap.

3.2.3. Make sure your hair is ready

Measure and cut your hair extensions so that the circumference of the wig cap is the same.

3.2.4. Sew

Make sure you have exact closure measures when creating a wig with lace closure. Knots that have been bleached add to the natural look of the scalp. Use the thread and needle to stitch all the way around the lace closure to the front of the cap to keep it in place. When sewing, use tight knots to guarantee that the lace closure is firmly fixed.

From one side of the lace closure to the other, sew your first track down the edge of the wig cap. Knot it firmly when you reach the edge, then cut off any extra track. Go around the track once more while folding it properly if it is long enough. To prevent bumps, it is better to stitch in the other direction.

Sew the last track to the closure after stitching the previous tracks all the way to it. Cut off the extra track after tying a knot to secure it. Double stitching the wefts (or tracks) together will make the hair look thicker.

3.2.5. Complete

Pluck the hair with tweezers so that it resembles your natural hair. Be careful not to cut into the stitching while trimming the extra wig cap that shows through the lace. The wig combs and band may now be stitched. Around the rim of the dome cap, as well as at least one comb on each side of the head, sew the wig band.

After that, style your wig as you like and take care of it with various hair treatments.

4. Do hair extensions hurt natural hair?

The answer is no if you wear and care for them correctly. Every few weeks, you should remove them and then replace them. If someone wears their extensions for a long time, there may be hair fallout.

Why? The natural hair inside each extension thins over time since we lose up to 100 hairs every day. If the natural hair is too thin, that bond gets thick. Women have bald patches because it is easily pulled off. Get your extensions replenished every 2 to 8 weeks rather than taking the chance.

Always ask your hairstylist if they have experience applying for extensions and if they have received any certifications from extension companies. Make sure you’re in skilled hands because extensions are safe for your hair if applied correctly.

I believe you now understand the ideal substance to utilize for your hair extensions after reading this post.
