We women are never satisfied with what we have got. Got short hair want long; got long hair want short but without taking the plunge to have it cut off. Well now you can have both with clip in hair extensions.You can easily put them in for that special occasion and take them out as easily to keep your hair short and manageable.
It depends on how long you want your extensions to last as to which ones you have. If it’s just temporary and for the odd occasion you will find clip in extensions the best. They are easy for you to put in yourself and won’t damage your hair. If it’s more long term you want them for then you can go for the glue in or tubular type. If looked after these can last up to 8 months.
Most people think that hair extensions are simply for making your hair look longer. Wrong! Adding hair extensions to your real hair also makes it look thicker. So for those of you, like me, that have fine, wispy hair there is hope for a full mane. Having thicker hair with hair extensions gives you chance to experiment with more styles for a different look.
With clip in extensions you don’t even have to go with your real colour. You have the added advantage of being able to buy these in a variety of colours so can go as wild as you like without the permanency of a dye and the chance it might go wrong.
I got married last year and having a mandarin style dress wanted my hair in a bun with chopsticks to carry on the theme. I have really fine hair and this just wasn’t possible. I was told a hair donut would solve the problem making my own hair look thicker. I bought one but still didn’t have enough hair of my own to cover it…
Hair extensions were my only hope at this point. I bought some the same colour as my natural hair and wrapped them round the donut covering it completely. After tying my hair up and attaching the donut over the top you couldn’t tell the difference. It looked great and all natural.
I’ve been able to keep my hand made bun and it’s there ready to use any time with no damage unlike some of the more permanent methods which can sometimes damage your own hair. My loose extensions came to my rescue! So how about you? Give them a try!
