I have always had thin hair and it has been something I have always wanted to fix. I tried adding in supplements and adding in certain fruits and vegetables to help my hair grow. However, it turns out that fine and thin hair can be genetic. In my case it is. So for the past 10 years I have turned to hair extensions for my fine hair. Hair extensions for fine haired women will give an beautiful transformation as well as boost confidence in an instant. Finally, full ponytails and gorgeous voluminous blowouts. All because of hair extensions. However, not all hair extensions are good for women with fine/thin hair. If you have thin hair you will need the best type of hair extensions that will work well with your hair type and won’t damage your already fine hair. I have tried all different type of hair extensions and I have found the best type of hair extension for fine hair. Read below to see each hair extension method and how they work with women with thin and fine hair.
Clip In Hair Extensions are a great temporary option for women with thin hair. However, the clip extensions tend to be very bulky and heavy. Each clip weft holds a lot of weight. When applied, it pulls on your hair creating pressure on the hair and can create bald spots overtime. Also, with clip extensions, if you have fine hair, you cannot just clip and go. Each clip weft need to be backed up with a tail comb, creating a little hair nest, that holds the clips. The clip extensions are fine if you are looking to wear hair extensions a few times out of the year. However, if you are looking for a daily or even weekly solution to fine hair then clip extensions are not for you. The clip extensions are very heavy and bulky and also have limited styling options. If you find yourself wearing your clip extensions a lot you may want to switch to tape extensions. They are not as expensive as other hair extension methods and won’t create bald spots like clip ins do over time.
Micro Bead/Fusion/ Strand by Strand Extensions are the worst hair extensions for women with thin hair. These expensive hair extensions are the worst hair extensions for fine hair. These extensions are placed strand by strand and cause a lot of damage to the hair. The micro bead hair extensions are really heavy as well and pull on the hair. These hair extensions out a lot of strain on the hair because each bond is small. So you have hundreds of tiny bonds pulling on your hair. What makes this method even worse is that many end up losing hair after removal. If you already have fine or thin hair, the last thing you want is to lose hair from hair extensions. When I wore these hair extensions my hair tangled like Bob Marleys dreadlocks and ended up pulling out my hair. Not to mention the method takes hours to get installed and costs thousands. This method is the worst for women with fine hair. Save your money and time.
Glued Weft/Sewn Weft Extensions I am not sure how many have tried these two methods but I have. Like I said, I have worn EVERY hair extensions possible. I love the way hair extensions transform my hair. The glued extensions are terrible and will rip your hair out in an instant. Not to mention the glue doesn’t allow your hair to grow and breathe. The Sewn In Weft Extensions are not good for fine hair either. These two methods are too bulky and pull on your own hair. For women with thin hair, this is a disaster. These two hair extension methods do not allow your hair to grow and breathe properly and are not good for those with fine hair.
Tape in hair extensions are the best hair extensions for fine hair period. These lightweight extensions get “taped” with tape hair wefts in between pieces of your own hair. Each tape weft is thin and lightweight and invisible. These thin tape extensions last up to three months and only take 30 minutes to get applied. The reason why they are the best hair extension for some with thin hair is because they are lightweight, conform to the shape of your head, and are undetectable. These extensions cannot be seen and barely can be felt. They are super thin yet hold up really well. You can workout with the hair extensions, you can swim, you can wear hair up or down, and have weekly blowouts with these extensions. They act just like your own hair. I love this method because I have worn tape extensions for 3 years and haven’t had any hair loss or damage. Finally I have found a solution for my fine hair problems.
If you have thin hair or are starting to have thin hair, there are solutions for fine hair out there! You do not have to suffer. You can have gorgeous hair and get your confidence back. Hair Extensions transform hair and really make you look and feel better. I love hair extensions and I am so happy that I have them to make my hair look better.
