If you have naturally thin hair, fine hair or hair that has become thin due to aging or as a result of the over use of relaxers or other hair straightening products or weaving techniques clip in hair extensions can be an excellent alternative to other types of extensions.
Many hair weaving techniques involve the use of glues, tape or other adhesive to attach extensions to your hair and others require the use of thread to sew tracks of extensions into braids that have been created throughout your head. These techniques have the potential to do major damage to thin hair. If installed or removed improperly the use of glue or tape can cause hair loss and the added weight of extensions sewed into thin hair can cause strands of hair to detach at the roots.
Unlike other types if extensions, clip in hair extensions don’t need to be secured to your hair with sticky glues and don’t need to be removed with special products. They can be worn how you want to wear them and provide a great deal of flexibility, freedom and greater hair styling options for people with thin air.
Here are a few reasons clip in hair extensions are good for thin hair:
They can be easily removed
Typically, extensions that are installed by professional hair stylists are meant to remain in place for anywhere from four to six weeks depending on the hair style and weaving technique used. Unlike these other methods, clip in hair extensions can be installed and removed daily and worn for any length of time you determine. The ability to install and remove clip in hair extensions at any time makes them a great option for people with thin hair who may suffer damage to their hair as a result of the stress other weaving techniques may place on their hair over the life of the hair style.
They are available in different weights
Clip in hair extensions are measured in weight per strand which is typically represented in grams. For example, clip in hair extensions that are 100 grams (100g) in weight have an individual hair strand measurement of 1.0 grams per strand. Any clip in hair extensions that range in weight from less than a gram to 1 gram in weight are perfect for individuals with thin hair because they are lightweight and will be a better match and easier to blend. Clip in hair extensions that weigh 120 grams or more are made of thicker and heavier strands of hair and should be avoided by individuals with thin hair.
You can add as little or as much as you want
The great thing about clip in hair extensions is that you can add as few or as many as you want to create the hair style of your choice. Add a few clip in extensions to your hair to create a little volume or increase length or add a lot to create a lot of body and fullness.
