if you get the kind that you can heat style, it's pretty close to normal hair I think.

A weave is what it's called when you have long hair added to your short, sort of, when it's woven into your hair basically, that's why it's called a weave.

As we know, there are multiple methods of adding length and volume to any hair...

It is when a weft of hair is sewn into a persons own hair.

This is true. When you realize that about 15-100 hairs shed each day naturally then it may seem that after 2-3 months it looks like a hair loss when you take the shrinkies out but in fact it just really naturally shedded hair trapped in the bond.

It depends on your hair color. If you get for example brown hair and you want to darken it, then of course you can do it, even at home. If you get dark hair and decide later on to lighten it than this is not recommended doing at home. But for example if you get blonde hair and your own hair is darker and growing out you can always do the roots yourself, that should not be a problem. Same vice versa when your natural hair color is light and you need to get your roots done, you can do it at home.

Does anybody have any experience with clip-on extensions? How many do you need to do your full head? The set I was looking at has 8 pieces - 8", 7", 5", 2x3", 3x2". Would that be enough?

i have been thinking about getting hair extensions for a while but i just don't know where to go for a good extensions with great price. my friend refered me to a place and says that they uses 'hairloc' (i'm guessing is another method of using hair extensions) but their price range is like 600-1000!??!?! i think that's just ridiculous for me. i'm looking for prices around 2-300? is that possible? i don't want to get it weaved though. i live around los angeles (SF valley to be exact.) if anyone lives in LA or the valley and would recommend a great salon w/ great price for me i would really appreciate it. thanks

I've been getting socap extentions for the past couple years and really love them, best I've seen. I'd call around and see who does them there, I'm sure you'd find someone. The price really depends on how much your getting, but I really recommend these.

I want to try hair extensions for just a week when I go on vacation and Vegas, NYE, but the price is outrageous, $250 plus! Its craziness, I'm not sure thats something that is really worth my money.
