I would definately recommend clip-ins.  Make sure you get 100% real hair that is exactly same colour as your hair.  My hairdresses used some on my trial and I loved them!  Don’t get bonded extensions – the ones that look good cost a bomb and they damage you hair and requires alot of maintenance. Plus they don’t last very long.  Sally Salon supplies do god clip-ins or HeadKandy.  Good Luck! x

Coming from a girl who has had “permanent” extensions for two years… Here is my recommendation… DO NOT go with glue in.  I started with Great Lengths extensions where they use a keratin glue to attach each strand to your hair.  This glue can only be removed with a special solution which you have to have done every four months or so when it starts to grow out.  Needless to say, since it is GLUED to your hair, your hair breaks off when brushed or caught.  After using this process 3 or 4 times at 2500 a pop, my hair had become noticeably thinner.  

As a solution, I found a girl who did I tip extensions… I have had those for about a year now.  Basically, they are attached to your head with a metal cannula that is opened and closed to tighten down the extension to your actual hair.  Rather than breaking off, the extension will brush out and not damage your hair.  I am extremely happy with them and have no plans to stop using them.  They are cheaper because you can reuse the hair when you get it “slipped up” and is therefore cheaper and does not damage your hair.

If you dont want to keep the extensions in for a long period of time, I would say go for clip ins…. but nothing is going to look as good or natural as a full head of extensions.  You also dont have to worry about your hair laying around the house.  My fiance would freak if he saw huge chunks of hair around the house and although the extensions are noticeable to the touch, he doesn’t mind them.

Hope that helps?

I have had extensions for the last 3 years. Started with glue in.. They left bald spots in my hair from the weight of the extensions and the constant pulling they do on your natural hair. I switched to clip ins, and I believe they’re the best for your hair except it’s hard to sleep in them. I currently use tape in extensions and when my hair gets the slightest bit greasy they slide out. Or if my hair is too clean the tape doesn’t stick. The tape also gets stuck in my natural hair and I have to use rubbing alcohol, baby powder and dish soap to break the glue.. And this happens probably once a week if not more. Honestly, if you’re trying to keep them in for a while, try getting them microbeaded into your hair. It is costly and takes a lot of time but there’s no glue involved and they stay in the longest.

Both would work well for any hair, mainly whites. But as a black person myself, I would prefer sew ins. Not because I’m black, but they last longer than clip ins and the hold better. And yes they hurt for a couple of days, but…pretty hurts💁✌️

stephanie63087 :   Yes they do if you do the piece by peice but you would need someone to help you put them in in order to do it correctly and make sure you match your hair all these women saying 2000 for sewn in I do them at my salon for 200-400 so  I jus suggest you call your local salon’s and speak with a hair stylist and ask them but if you do go with sewn ins I suggest you purchase outside of the salon or it does get costly eBay has a lot of good deals on sewn in and clip in 100% Remy hair
