Struggling to choose what hair extension method is the best for you? Not entirely sure if clip in extensions will suit your hairs needs? Not to worry! Here at ZALA, we have tackled both pros and cons of clip in hair extensions. We’re here to help you decide whether clip in extensions are tailored to your AND your hair’s requirements. Read on for the benefits and disadvantages of clip in hair extensions…
PROS – Pro and Cons of Clip In Hair Extensions
- Temporary Style
For those of us who aren’t blessed with long, lustrous and voluminous locks, clip in hair extensions effortlessly allow a temporary boost of length and volume. Switch up your style when and wherever you choose! Their non-permanency allows us indecisive girls to change up your looks without having to be tied down to long hair for several weeks at time. Bringing us to our second point of the pros and cons of clip in hair extensions…
- Easy Application
Clip in hair extensions are the easiest to apply. No heat or glue necessary and no cost involved! You don’t have to be a hair expert or take them to a professional to apply. In under 2 minutes, you can achieve instant improvements for your natural hair’s volume, body and length! Plus, unlike other hair extension methods, clip in extensions prevent damage caused to your natural hair. If applied correctly, breakage, excess shedding of your natural locks is avoided. Watch below for our fail-safe application tutorial for clip in hair extensions.
- Low Maintenance
Another reason why clip in hair extensions are advantageous is their low up keep. Who really wants to sit in the hair salon for hours on end maintaining their extensions?! At ZALA, we believe the necessary hair care involved with clip in extensions is good storage and careful brushing. (Check out our Loop Brush and Protect Me Bag designed to make your clip ins last anywhere from 6-12 months!)
CONS – Pros and Cons of Clip In Hair Extensions
- Not permanent
Like our first ‘pro’, clip in hair extensions are of course only temporary which is a disadvantage depending on your specific needs. They require added caution in some circumstances and are not able to be worn while sleeping without causing damage to both your natural hair and extensions. This may be an ill effect to those who seek their permanent fix of long locks!
- Hairstyles and visibility
Clip in hair extensions aren’t the most undetectable of all methods. Unlike tape hair extensions, the clips are more visible at the root of the hair and do not sit completely flat against the scalp. If you’re a fan of high buns or ponytails, or have extremely fine/thin hair, clip in extensions might not be for you. Although, nothing a little styling and proper application can’t hide
Perhaps these pros and cons of clip in hair extensions explain some of the reasons why we love clip in hair extensions!
