Least Damaging Extensions For Fine Hair

Using Hair Extensions For Fine Hair

Before purchasing your first set of extensions, you should be familiar with your natural hair. What’s the shade of your hair? Does your hair have a curl pattern? Most importantly, what type of hair strand do you have?

If you have thick hair, you’re basically free to use any type of extension you want. But if you have fine hair, you should be warier of the type of extension you’re using. It’s important to use extensions that won’t pull or break your already fragile strands.

3 Least Damaging Extensions For Fine Hair

Worried about using potentially damaging your hair? Here’s a list of the 3 least damaging extensions for fine hair!

Halo Hair Extension

Considered the best option for fine hair, halo hair extensions add much-needed volume and length without damaging your strands. Unlike other types that are directly attached to the hair, halos simply sit on your scalp. Due to this, they don’t add any unnecessary stress to your roots.

With its quick and easy application that provides runway-ready results in just a few seconds, your fine locks (and roots!) will surely love this hair extension.

Tape-in Hair Extensions

If you want something that’s more permanent than halos , you can opt for tape-in hair extensions. Tape-in extensions are attached to your hair using very thin tape tabs. They’re very light, which means they don’t pull or tug on your fine strands. They also look natural and seamless since they’re attached so closely to your scalp.

You can always DIY your tape-in application and removal. The entire process usually just takes 30 minutes to an hour, depending on how thick you want your hair to be.

Clip-in Hair Extensions

Clip-in hair extensions are the most affordable and most popular type in the market. The application is super easy, too. All you have to do is to clip them in and once they’re attached, you can now walk down the streets with thicker and fuller hair! Just make sure to apply and remove them gently so that you won’t damage your fine hair.

Hair Extensions For Volume

Having longer hair means you can try out more gorgeous hairstyles. Sadly, even long hair can’t save you if your hair’s too thin or limp to hold up your hairdo well.

Nowadays, there are various hair treatments that you can undergo if you want to have long, flowing, voluminous hair. These treatments will give you more hair strands per hair follicle, which will give the appearance of thicker hair. However, not everyone’s lucky enough to undergo these treatments.

The perfect alternative? Using hair extensions for volume.

Using Hair Extensions for Volume

While hair extensions are mostly known to instantly extend your strands, they can also be worn to make your hair more voluminous. And if you’re unsure which hair extensions would be best for your #HairGoals, then this list is for you.

1. Clip-in Extensions

Widely used for many reasons, Clip-in Hair Extensions are usually the first choice when choosing hair extensions. They’re very easy to apply and remove, even if you decide to go the DIY route.

You only need half an hour of additional time to have bulkier and livelier hair. It’s also a great option for beginners since you don’t need much knowledge, time, and effort in order to get the job done.

2. Tape-in Extensions

As the name implies, Tape-in Extensions are hair extensions that use tapes to get attached to your hair. A thin strip of your hair is sandwiched in between two pieces of tape-in extensions and laid flat against your head and as close to the roots as possible.

Because tape-ins use adhesives, you can easily cut longer pieces to make them into shorter pieces, depending on where you want to apply them. This gives you enough flexibility when adding volume to your hair. They’re also much easier to hide since the tapes themselves lie flat on your scalp.

3. Halo Extensions

Halo Hair Extensions aren’t attached to your strands in any way. Instead, it sits on a very thin and almost invisible wire that you wear on your head like a headband. Also, it only takes a minute or two to wear. You can even hide the wire underneath the top section of your hair to make it completely unnoticeable.

However, unlike the other types of extensions on this list, halos offer limited customizability. If you have thinning hair on certain portions of your head, such as the top, you won’t be able to concentrate the additional volume on just that part.

4. Ponytail Extensions

Ponytail Hair Extensions, like the name implies, are made specifically for ponytail hairstyles. It’s a variant of the clip-in extensions that are perfect for clipping onto your own hair’s ponytail.

While the classic pony is a go-to hairstyle for many people, more volume would mean more life to your ponytail hairdo.

As you can see, there’s no need to worry about not having enough volume to pull of that dream hairstyle of yours. Thanks to hair extensions, you can instantly transform from drab to fab!

Clip-In Hairpieces For Volume

Does your hair look pitifully thin when you tie it in a straight ponytail? Do you get a cute Xi?ob?o instead of an elegant Dàb?o when you tie your hair in a bun? Or do you get a fishtail that’s barely there when you try to put your hair in a braid?

Think your hair is lacking in length and volume? In this article, we’ll tell you how to use Zala’s clip-in hairpieces for volume!

Adding Volume To Your Hair

Don’t worry, we know full well the pains of not having thick hair. After all, having less hair volume than desired can really hamper your style.

Since you have less to work with, you tend to have fewer hairstyle options too. Plus, most of the hairstyles you do get to try out don’t look as nice as you imagined them to be. Even when you tease your hair in an effort to make it look more voluminous, it just falls flat back a few hours after.

At this point, getting some sort of professional hair treatment or therapy may have already crossed your mind. But this requires a significant investment of your time, effort, and finances. For most people, the preferred solution is one that’s instant, easier to pull off, and less expensive.

So how about investing in volumizing hairpieces, specifically clip-in hairpieces, instead?

Using Clip-In Hairpieces For Thicker Hair

Hairpieces are not just for additional length. You can also use them to add volume to your hair to give more fluff and life to your hairstyle. Whether for everyday volume or for pulling off gorgeous hairstyles on special occasions, you only need to put them on and style your hair, less even if you styled the hairpieces beforehand.

What Are Clip-In Hairpieces?

Clip-in hairpieces, as its name implies, are hairpieces attached to a base made of lace or fabric with clips attached or sewn. Because you can just clip them on and off whenever you want to apply or remove them, wearing them is quick and easy.

You don’t have to plan your days ahead, thinking about adjusting how active your activities are when you’re wearing them because the hairpieces, and the volume, is only as permanent as you want them to be.

They require less of your time, effort, and finances over the long run. You can buy them, have your hairdresser style them to match your hair, and then you’re good to go. You can now have more voluminous hair instantly just by wearing clip-in hairpieces.

No worries about hair damage, too. They don’t need any chemicals or heat to apply, which means there’s no chance of ruining your hair or scalp.

Additional Tips When Using Clip-In Hairpieces

If you have short hair and you already like your length but just want a bit of volume, you can use pieces that are closer to your current length. Zala has 12″-14″ clip-ins that can add volume to your crowning glory without being needlessly long.

Another tip is to tease your roots after applying the clip-ins. Simply backcomb your hair slightly to lift your hair at the roots. Aside from making your hair look bigger and more voluminous, teasing the hair also gives the clip-in hairpieces additional hold and grip if your hairpieces tend to slip especially if you have fine hair.

If you still feel that something’s lacking, you can also opt to use volumizing products to make your hair strands look even thicker. Lastly, avoid shampoos and conditioners that have sulfates, parabens, or other harmful ingredients that can make your hair look flat and dull.

Clip-In Hairpieces For Volume

Clip-in hairpieces are an easy and affordable way to give your hair and hairstyle more bulk, more volume, more life.

One Piece, 5-Piece, or 9-Piece Clip-in Hair Extensions for my Wedding?

There’s a reason why we call a lady’s hair her crowning glory. And on her most special day–her very own wedding–this beauty should be the centerpiece of the entire ceremony. As such, special care should be shown and taken for your hair on your wedding day. After all, every lady deserves the most beautiful hair on this once-in-a-lifetime event.

That said, do you think your natural hair can’t pull off your dream look? In this article, we’ll tell you all about clip-in hair extensions and how you can use them to spruce up your wedding day hair!

Hair Extensions for My Wedding

Using Clip-In Hair Extensions For Weddings

Clip-in hair extensions can be the answer to your quest for a more extravagant hairdo to wear on your special day. Typically already worn for special occasions and even as everyday hair if you’re more hair-conscious, hair extensions are a great way to add volume and length to your hair and make it more flexible to styling.

If you’re considering wearing hair extensions on your big day, clip-ins are some of the easiest to wear, even for total beginners. You can either apply them yourself or ask your hairstylist to put them in.

Here at Zala, there are three different types of clip-in hair extensions that you can purchase. You’ve got one-piece, five-piece, or nine-piece clip-ins. The number you should use depends on your hair thickness. It won’t be good for your wedding hairstyle if your strands can’t conceal the wefts or the extensions just don’t look natural on your hair.

One-Piece Clip-In Hair Extensions

The best thing about one-piece clip-in volumizers is that there’s only one piece. You only have to clip-in a hair extension once, just in that area from your one ear to the other, and you’re good to go.

With Zala’s One-Piece Clip-Ins, you get instant length, volume, and buoyancy to your hair without much effort. This is typically good enough for you to pull off the hairstyle you’ve been coveting for your wedding day.

Available in 14 inches, 16 inches, or 20 inches, this is your lightweight and comfortable solution to flat and dull wedding day hair.

Five-Piece Clip-In Hair Extensions

Most clip-in hair extensions are available in five-piece or nine-piece bundles. However, if your hair is on the thinner or finer side, five-piece clip-in hair extensions would be the more appropriate choice over the nine-piece bundle.

Because it’s important that the wefts are well-hidden under your hair for that more natural look, finer or thinner hair can typically only conceal five-pieces of wefts. Still, you can be assured that five-piece clip-in hair extensions will already be enough to give your hair more length and volume to work with for a perfect wedding hairdo.

Nine-Piece Clip-In Hair Extensions

If you already have thick hair, using only five pieces on your hair may not change your current thickness and volume that much. Luckily, we also have nine-piece clip-ins, for those who want more pieces.

Medium and thicker hair types can hide and hold more wefts. This makes them more suitable for nine-piece clip-ins.

Additionally, you need as much hair as possible to obscure your own ends to achieve the voluminous, natural look. If your extensions aren’t as thick as your natural hair, it will look evidently thinner at the bottom, making it painfully obvious you’re wearing extensions.

Clip-In Extensions on my Wedding Day

Part of choosing the right hair extensions for you is selecting the right number of pieces for your hair extensions. Just as the color of your hair extensions should match or complement your natural hair color, the thickness of your hair extensions should also be appropriate to your natural hair thickness.

Once your hair transformation is complete, it should look as natural as possible. You can’t afford to have hair strands awkwardly sticking out or weft clips obviously standing out. You deserve to look your absolute best on your wedding day, which means your hair deserves the best clip-in hair extensions on them as well.

How to apply clip-in hair extensions

Before we start, always remember that proper treatment and conditioning should be done beforehand to ensure that your extensions are safe to attach to the natural hair. This is not only for hygienic purposes but it also ensures the longevity of your extensions.

  1. Divide your hair by separating half of your hair using a clip, securing it in place. This is in preparation for the clip-in hair extensions.
  2. Add one piece to your hair and secure it in place.
  3. Bring down some strands from the separated half. Clip another piece into place.
  4. Continue doing this until all the pieces have been clipped in.

Having short hair is a matter of preference. One minute you might be confident with your new hair but after a while, you might crave another hairstyle in which your current hair lacks the length to pull off. We’re just as thankful as you are that those hair extensions exist!
