Clip in hair extensions are one of the most popular methods of hair extensions available on the market. With so many brands available at differing prices, it becomes difficult to know what to look for to get the perfect set of clip in hair extensions. We’ve put together the essential factors to consider before purchasing to ensure you get the best hair extensions for you.
1. Is Your Hair Suitable for Clip In Hair Extensions?
The first point to consider; are clip in extensions the best method for you? Various hair types and textures will require different methods. Extremely fine hair is not always suitable for this kind of extension as it can be difficult to cover the lace wefts when placed high upon the head. The weight of the extensions can also be too heavy for weak hair. Consider these points before purchasing to avoid any damage. If you have extremely fine hair, it is recommended to visit a Secret Hair Extensions salon beforehand to advise you the safest method.
2. How Heavy Are The Extensions?
The weight of hair extensions indicates how much hair is contained within them. Extensions are weighed in grams; the heavier the weight – the thicker your extensions will be. If you have thick hair, you will need to choose a more substantial set of extensions to create the perfect blend. Our sets start at 130g, which is 30g more than other standard sets available on the market. We also offer 180g, 230g, and 270g super sets.
3. What Is Your Desired Length?
The length of your hair and the length you would like your extensions to create is also something to consider. Are you looking for thickness but keeping the same length? Or are you looking for thickness and length? Our extensions range from 12 inches to 24 inches, if you would like advice on your perfect extensions length please get in touch with a photo so we can advise you further.
4. What Hair Are The Extensions Made From?
As with all hair extensions, it is important to choose the best quality hair available. Better quality hair creates extensions that will last longer and shed less. Always choose Remy Extensions using Mongolian or Russian hair. This hair is renowned for its luxuriousness, lasting longer and styling well. There are other hair types available, but they may not last as long.
5. Are The Clips Silicone Lined?
The type of clips used on hair extensions can affect how well they sit in the hair. Silicone lined clips are designed to sit in the hair more comfortably as well as providing a protective barrier between the clip and your hair, meaning less damage. If you plan to wear the extensions daily, choose silicone lined clips for the safest option for your hair.
