If you’re looking to add length and volume to your hair, you should consider hair extensions. But with all the different methods out there, it can be hard to know which one is right for you.
Here’s a breakdown of some of the most popular hair extension methods, as well as how long they typically last:
Clip-in extensions are the most temporary option, as they can be easily removed and put back in as desired. They’re also the most affordable option, making them a great choice for those who want to try out extensions without making a major investment. However, clip-ins generally don’t last as long as other methods, as they can be prone to slipping out or getting tangled.
Sew-in extensions are a more permanent option, as they’re sewn into your natural hair. This makes them less likely to slip out or get tangled, and they can last for several months with proper care. However, sew-ins can be damaging to your natural hair, as the sewing process places stress on the follicles.
Glue-in extensions are another semi-permanent option, and they can last for several weeks when properly cared for. They’re applied with a bonding glue that adheres to the natural hair, so they’re less likely to slip out than clip-ins. However, they can be damaging to the natural hair if the glue is not applied correctly, as it can pull on the follicles when removed.
Micro-bead extensions are a semi-permanent option that uses small beads to attach the extensions to the natural hair. They’re less likely to cause damage than sew-ins or glue-ins, as there’s no sewing or gluing involved. However, they need to be re-tightened every few weeks to prevent slippage.
Tape-in extensions are a semi-permanent option that uses adhesive tape to attach the extensions to the natural hair. They’re less likely to cause damage than other methods, but they pull on the hair if applied incorrectly, damaging the hair follicles.
Keratin bond extensions
Keratin bond extensions are a semi-permanent option that uses small keratin bonds to attach the extensions to the natural hair. They’re less likely to cause damage than other methods, but they need to be re-applied every few weeks to prevent slippage.
Choose the method that’s right for you.
