I have only tried the clip in kind that have the option of being sewn in. My hair is also thin and the clips seemed too obvious against my scalp. I’d recommend going to a hair salon or even a hair college and asking to get even just a few sewn in to see how the look and feel without making the fiancial and physical commitment. I’m sure they right stylest/student will be happy to accomodate you.

I second christybtobe – my hair is super thin, and while I loved my clip in extensions because of the length, it was really difficult to keep the clips covered up. I wouldn’t waste your money on them!

@beautymyth:  May I ask what illness you have? The reason being is that if you get keratin-bonded extensions, they will be discreetly placed so the bonds can not be seen. If the hair continues to thin out then they will eventually become visible. They will also come out if enough of the hair they are attached to comes out. If you don’t anticipate more hair loss they may be worth the investment, but make sure you invest in human hair that matches your own texture.

I’ve had three different methods. I have genetically fine hair and even when I grow my hair out, it is dull and lacking volume so I prefer having extensions. I recommend the microbeading or hairlocs. The micro beads have a silicone lining which keep them from damaging your hair but I hear that they can collect mold. I have never experienced that and have had both types for over 9 months at a time. If you take care of them and get them moved up every 6 weeks-2 months they should last for a year or so. I say go for it girl! They will make you feel gorgeous!

Also: SEARCH AROUND some people can be way over priced. If you feel like the stylist may be a little inexperienced, get them blended elsewhere but I’ve found it pretty hard to really mess them up during application if they know the basic method. I have a friend who does them for free but I have to drive 4 hours to get to her so that’s the draw. I was able to find someone closer that does them for $410 which seems reasonable to me.

@beautymyth: I’m sorry to hear this, hopefully the medication is working well for you. As long as you think everything is stable I’d go with it. We sold So Cap hair extensions and they were decent quality. We were also trained on how to put them in and properly remove them. I think they were a little more affordable than the Mega Hair extensions I had put in my own hair back in 2004. They stayed in pretty well but the hair extensions were a different texture of hair then my own, which made them challenging to manage at times. I had mine in about a year though, and my hair was in better condition after removing them than it was before I had them put in.

I have tape extensions in currently. I love them! I have fine hair and I find that the tapes add volume. My natural hair is barely chin length and I got 19 inch extensions. I paid more for the hair as its the top quality, but if they’re well maintained they can last 12 months easy. They are taken out and retaped, and moved up closer to the scalp. Mine were put in in August, and there are only a handful that have grown out enough to be moved.

Im on my phone, but I can put some pics up when I get home if you like 🙂

Clip in extensions are wonderful & so easy to put in, then just take out when the night is over!  I wanted a more permanent fix a few times so I’ve also had mine “sewn” in, where your hair is braided and then the wefts of hair are sewn to the braid.  Is also not as damaging if you have fine hair & lasts about six weeks. You can also reuse the hair, juthe have the threads cut when you’re ready to take them out…the hair is not reusable when they are bonded in.

hope this helps!!

I llllooooove my extensions! I’ve had keratin ones, micro rings and now I’ve got shrinkies in… I have to say, I prefer the shrinkies; they’re comfortable, don’t harm your hair and don’t show through my hair (I’ve got genetically thin hair..)

 

LOVE THEM! They give me the length I’m missing at the moment, and give more volume to my barnet… 🙂
