Many will say that extensions for thin hair are not the best idea, as this beauty procedure can damage already fragile and delicate curls. This is true in case your hair’s in a really bad condition.
In fact, hair extensions are a solution for fine hair and not a cause of fine hair!
The main thing is to choose the right set of extensions and application techniques for your hair.
We have highlighted 5 key points that will help you understand how to do extensions for thin hair properly.
- What technique is not suitable for fine hair?
Tape-ins are not the best option for weak soft hair. The tapes are attached as follows: tape-in extensions have glue on each strip, and the stylist takes one strip and attaches it to a small section of natural hair.
It turns out to be something like a «sandwich». However, this «sandwich» can get a little chunky, making it more difficult to disguise hair extensions with fine hair. In addition, such extensions would overload the hair, which in this case is unacceptable.
Microlink is also not a good idea for thinned curls. In this method, the strands are fixed with small beads, which are clamped shut with special tongs. It can be even more damaging for fine soft curls.
- Which hair extensions are best for fine hair?
For weak and thinned strands it is better to opt for:
- Fusion hair extensions are installed with small bonds;
- Sew-in extensions involve braiding hair extensions around the head;
- Clip-in extensions are temporary hair extensions that you can clip in for a celebration or any other event, and clip out as soon as you return home. So the risk of damage is virtually nil.
- Are these 3 extension methods equally good for thin hair?
Clip-in extensions do not require an appointment with a stylist (although you can use the services of a professional for a wedding to ensure that the clip-ins are fixed firmly and will not slip off during the event).
As for fusion and weft extensions, the choice of the optimal technique often depends on what your beauty stylist is used to dealing with.
If you have chosen k-tip extensions, we recommend opting for micro bonds: they are invisible and will not weigh the hairstyle.
For hand-tied wefts take hand-made tresses: they are lighter and neater.
However, even the properly chosen techniques can give a negative result if:
- The stylist is not skillful enough: for example, creates excessive tension in the roots area, which can damage them and lead to hair loss.
- Hair tech installs too heavy strands, which are not designed for fine soft hair.
- The hairstylist makes too large bonds. Firstly, they are very visible. Secondly, they can damage fine hair.
- The specialist uses machine wefts: they are heavy and bulky.
- Which hair extensions are suitable for fine hair?
The best option is virgin or dyed Slavic hair. These are the softest curls that will not weigh the hairstyle and will match well with your naturally fine hair.
All other bundles are not for you: Asian hair is too heavy, and also often undergoes an aggressive treatment that damages the cuticle of the hair.
Russian and European hair is a good quality alternative. However, such hair has a denser structure, so can weigh the hairstyle.
