4 Least Damaging Hair Extensions
Is your hair recovering from too much chemical or heat application? Are you worried that you might do your hair more–and probably irreparable–damage?
Whether you’re waiting to grow your hair out to chop off the unsalvageable length, or you really just want to hide the damaged hair, hair extensions might just be the perfect solution to your problem.
Our Top 4 Least Damaging Hair Extensions
Hair extensions are a good way to deal with wanting something more with your hair without having to give up on your hair entirely. If you’re skeptical about whether they’d harm your natural hair when you wear them, here are some of the least damaging hair extensions you can get for your hair.
1. Clip-in Hair Extensions
The first type is clip-in hair extensions. With clips sewed to the base of the wefts, the hair extensions are easily clipped on or off whenever you want to wear or remove them, quick and easy.
Because of how clip-ins are worn, they’re only permanent on your head for as long as you keep them on. No need to strain your scalp wearing them for longer than you need. Clip-ins are comfortable enough to wear for those few hours from applying them until you get home after fully enjoying the gala.
2. Tape-in Hair Extensions
Because the adhesive lies flat on your head, it would be difficult to damage your hair with tape-in hair extensions. You get more volume and length to your hair by sandwiching a thin strip of your hair in between two tape-ins. It's similar to how velcro works, except it's safer and more friendly to your hair.
This requires about 30-60 minutes to apply. Plus, with proper care, you can reuse the tape-in hair extensions for as long as they last. You might need a little help from your hairdresser while applying them though, depending on how much more hair you want to wear.
3. Ponytail Hair Extensions
This one is a modified version of clip-in hair extensions. It's especially used for ponytails on days when you prefer your hair swept cleanly away from your face.
The clip-in pony is clipped on the pony tie of your own hair and secured with bobby pins on opposite sides and hidden with a section of hair wrapped around the pony. With this pretty straightforward application method, there’s not much room for you to damage your hair when you wear a ponytail hair extension.
4. Halo Hair Extensions
If you only have a minute or two to spare, Halo Hair Extensions are the best option for you. You just part your hair around your safe zone and let the extension sit in the space in between.
Best of all, there's no need to worry about hair damage when it comes to halo hair extensions. They're literally just like a headband that sits there on your scalp and gives you an additional layer of hair. It isn’t attached chemically or physically to your hair in any way, so it doesn’t strain your hair or stress your scalp.
Understanding how hair extensions work isn’t rocket science, considering they’re named exactly as they’re worn or applied. With this list, you now know which hair extensions you should use when you have damaged hair.For more hair tips and tricks, don't forget to check out our Zala blog!
