Knowing how long each type of black ponytail extension lasts might save you both time and money before you receive your first one! In addition to that, I'm suffering from a bad headache. 

Let's be honest: Cheaper extensions, whether synthetic or genuine hair, will not last as long as more expensive ones, to begin with. Most of the time, this is an obvious conclusion to draw from any purchase you make. It's possible to score a deal on a cheap one that'll hold up for a long time, but in general, you'll want to invest in the best Possible Material. 

What Is The Length Of Extensions? 

My own clip-ins have lasted approximately a year already, but don't get too excited yet! A strange website sold me a set of synthetic ones. Given that they were so inexpensive and this was my first time using them, I didn't have high expectations for them in terms of quality. Because I've only used them a few times, they've lasted this long. And quite a few of my hairs fell out throughout those few instances. Because of this, I'm quite certain that they won't survive more than three months under normal use. 

Since they've lasted so long, it's safe to say they're not of the highest quality and haven't been put to much use at all. Only a little = Only a tiny amount of damage. The first thing you should know, based on my own experience, is that no matter what sort of hair you obtain, synthetic or real, it will ultimately need to be replaced. Just like your natural hair, the method you take care of your extensions counts. 

Don't be shocked if your synthetic hair extensions only last a few months if you frequently use heat styling. Temperature and synthetic hair clip-ins are known to cause hair damage. So you won't be able to use them for a whole year. 

If you frequently heat style your hair, you may want to invest in human hair clip-ins. Heat styling synthetic clip-ins on a daily basis will shorten their lifespan because they can only be heated to a set temperature. When it comes to heat styling, be sure to read the instructions on the label carefully. 

What is the lifespan of human hair and synthetic wigs? 

About a year can be expected if you take good care of your clip-in hair extensions. However, with moderate to severe use and poor maintenance, they usually only last 3 to 6 months. They need the same care and attention that you give your natural hair. 

Synthetic hair extensions that are heated and worn every day for 2-3 months should last you roughly that long with regular use. People who cannot or will not have their hair heat styled should expect it to last up to six months with proper maintenance and little washing. 

As you can see, each type has its advantages and disadvantages. Do your homework and think about how much time and money you have to devote to upkeep. When you know what you like and what you can afford, go out and buy some clip-in hair extensions!
