What Are the Least damaging Hair Extensions?

Here at Cliphair, we hear all about hair extensions, and particularly the curious questions about the potential damage hair extensions may cause your hair! Most speculated damages hair extensions may have on your natural hair can be avoided by taking care of your hair and extensions and by using simple, and top-quality hair extensions. You can easily step away from that cycle of damage by choosing the right extensions for your hair type and looking after them with care. Today we look at which hair extensions are the least damaging to your natural hair.

Although some people think the use of hair extensions is the core cause of damaged hair, they couldn’t be farther from the truth. If your hair is exposed to a never-ending use of heat tools, braiding, harsh products, your hair will be damaged whether you use hair extensions or not. You can easily step away from that cycle of damage by choosing the right extensions for your hair type and looking after them with care.

For temporary hair extensions: Clip ins are least damaging to your hair

Thanks for clip in extensions’ ease of use (simply clip the clip ins into place and you can easily remove them in a few minutes), they are the most popular option for those looking for instant and temporary hair extensions that cause the least damage to natural hair. In fact, clip in hair extension are perfect for anyone who wants to preserve their own natural hair but like to switch up their look sometimes, or for those who simply wish to grow out their natural hair while still looking glamorous. 

Cliphair UK’s clip in extensions are designed to not damage your hair at all – the extensions are attached with smooth silicone-coated clips, that stay firm and don’t pull or tug your natural hair. They won’t scratch your scalp or tangle your roots, and there is no use of glue or heat throughout the process of wearing clip in hair extensions. To make sure you avoid any unnecessary damage, you should select and wear the right weight for your hair (in grams vs the thickness of your hair). Out hair extensions are shipped worlwide from our headquaters in the UK.
Human hair clip in extensions are designed to offer you exact same, professional salon look at a more affordable price. Clip in hair extensions are the least damaging type of hair extension because they’re easy to put in and remove and they don’t affect your lifestyle or your hair as much as permanent extensions.

In order for clip in extensions to cause zero damage to your hair, or affect your hair’s growth, it’s important to always use them correctly, like anything else, can be harmful if used incorrectly. Pay attention to the way you apply your clip in extensions and always make sure you are not adding too much weight to your hair as that will result in the extensions pulling down your natural hair. Wearing hair extensions will not break down the keratin in your hair, however, if they are not applied properly, they strain your hair or if the weight is too much for your hair.

To clip in your extensions damage free, you must place the clips horizontally from one use of the head to the other, making use they’re clipped in firmly with no chance of pulling or tugging your hair. Ensure that they feel safe and comfortable as correction application is the key to ensuring the extensions and clip in have a natural-looking blend, as well as keeping the hair healthy without causing any unnecessary stress. If you already suffer from brittle hair or hair loss for medical reasons, consult your doctor before buying your clip in hair extensions.

For permanent hair extensions: Tape ins are least damaging 

While clip ins are by far the least damaging type of hair extensions because they aren’t installed permanently and they also offer your hair some rest from too much styling, tape in extensions offer a more natural look and a more seamless blend, as do micro ring extensions. 

Tape in extensions come with adhesive with double-sided tape that holds the extensions together and attaches the extensions to your hair. Although we often say glue is bad for your hair, tape in extensions come with a special adhesive designed to be kind to your hair and easy to remove without causing any damage to your hair. It always lays flat on your hair, allowing the extensions to blend them easily with your natural hair.

With any of our hair extensions, you should not experience unusual amounts of hair loss. Tape in extensions don’t affect hair growth in any way at all and cannot help your hair grow at a faster rate than normal. We always encourage our customers to get their hair extensions fitted in by a professional hairstylist as ill fitted tape in will cause damage to your hair. Use of incorrect removal glue may cause the tape bonds not to break properly, which as result, will cause damage as you’ll end up using excessive force to remove the tape in bonds. So, it is very important to ensure that you use a good quality tape remover.

If you look after your extensions and get them fitted and removed properly, tape in extensions won’t damage your hair or cause any problem to your natural hair. You should read the instructions when washing or sleeping in your hair extensions to increase their durability, health and shine. Tape in extensions won’t cause you any problems if you do things properly. And by that, we mean getting them applied professionally, removed carefully and cared for well while they’re in your hair.

Other hair extension types, such as micro rings and weave are safe to use on your hair too. The key to your extensions leaving zero damage to your hair is to ensure you choose your extensions carefully and apply them well as this reduces the risk of damage to your natural hair. It’s essential to choose the right extensions ; consider hair type, the thickness of your hair, the weight of the new hair, and the type of hair extensions used and your overall haircare regime. We hope this helps.
