Do you still think clip-in extensions are better for your hair than permanent extensions, just because you can take them out every day? If so, read this post, so that you can start to understand the benefits of permanent extensions, and when it is better to use clip-ins.
Clip-ins are a great choice if you only want extensions for special occasions – such as weddings, important meetings, dates, you name it – rather than for everyday use. What will happen to your hair if you get so attached to your lovely clip-in extensions, you start to wear them every day?
Unfortunately, your hair will start to fall out and leave you with bald spots – not the most elegant look, to be sure! At the beginning you will probably not notice it, but trust us, it will become very clear when there is no longer any hair left to clip the extensions onto and you have to change the attachments. I’m not saying you shouldn't buy clips – after all, we sell them in our online store – but you need to know how to use them and whether they are the right choice for you.
So if you have very thin hair, I would not recommend using clip-in extensions, because they will make your hair even thinner. Go for tape extensions instead – I promise they will leave your hair in a better shape after a year. If you have thick hair, clips are a great product for you to use from time to time. Heavy clip-in extensions weigh down your hair; that’s why they’re better for people with thick, strong hair. Don’t fall for the argument that it’s cheaper to buy clip-ins, because come on – is it worth damaging your hair just to save a little bit of money? And besides, the tape can be reused up to three or four times, which adds a lot of value.
What have we learned from this post? If you have thin hair, it’s OK to use clip-ins on special occasions, but tape extensions will leave your hair more healthy in the longer term. If you have thicker hair, clips are a great choice from time to time, but you will still have healthier hair if you go for the tape option.
