Hair extensions are measured two ways; by length and weight. Length is fairly obvious to figure out; that is the measurement from root to tip in inches. This can be anywhere from nineteen inches all the way up to twenty-six inches. Weight can be a little trickier, because we do not necessarily think of our own hair in weights. These pieces are measured by grams, and usually range from ninety to around two-hundred and twenty grams.

Ninety gram hair pieces are best suited for individuals with particularly fine hair. They are also great for those looking for a bit of fullness. Higher gram extensions may be more difficult to blend if used on this hair type.If your hair is considered a medium thickness, using around a one-hundred and eighty gram hair extension kit. This will create length as well as luscious thickness. Using a lower gram kit may look noticeably uneven in your hair, and using a higher gram may be more difficult to hide.For extremely thick hair, two-hundred and twenty gram hair piece kits are essential.
