Types of Hair Extensions to Address Hair Loss and Thin Hair

    Are you suffering from hair loss or thin hair? Maybe hair extensions are a good way to help solve the problem. There are many different types – such as tape-in hair extensions, clip-ins, sew ins, halo hair extensions, and more. They are a great choice for adding length, volume, and color to your hair, as well as addressing hair loss issues.

    Clip ins

    Clip in hair extensions are wefts that are clipped into your natural hair. This type of extension is considered the simplest, fastest, and most secure. If you're looking for a temporary style change, clip-on clips are the best choice because they're low maintenance and require no commitment. You don’t even need to find a professional to install them.

    Tape in hair extensions

    Tape in extensions are tape applied to the roots using heated glue. Tape ins work in a ‘sandwich,’ meaning you put a thin strand of hair between two extensions and they both stick together at the root. Tape in hair extensions are considered semi-permanent extensions; they are similar to clip ins, except they last longer and stick to the hair. They're also lightweight, so even if you have them all over your head, you won't feel heavy.

    Sew in hair extensions

    Sew-ins (or weaves) are the most popular form of hair extensions, especially for thicker hair. Installing a weave is a more labor-intensive process. They are usually installed by a hairstylist who braids the hair - and then sews or "traces" the hair into the braids. This usually takes between two and six hours, depending on how many bundles you want installed (two or three are enough) and the speed of your stylist.


    Microbead (or i-Tips) extensions use tiny beads and pliers to clamp the extension in place. These beads are often matched to your hair color, making it easy to blend them seamlessly with your natural strands. No heat or glue is required and the look will take approximately 2 to 4 hours to complete.

    Bonded Hair Extensions

    Bonded hair extensions, also known as keratin-bonded hair extensions, use keratin and a heat gun to fuse the bond to the hair. This process can take several hours to complete because, like microlinks, each hair extension is individually attached to your natural hair until the desired look is achieved. These are not permanent, but they can last up to four or five months, depending on personal maintenance.

    Halo hair extensions

    These easy-to-style, invisible hair extensions are perfect for those who are extremely low-maintenance. What makes them convenient is that the single weft is held in place by an almost invisible thread to the natural curve of the head. This is a great option for those who are curious about hair extensions but are not ready for a more permanent application.
