However, they still wonder whether hand-tied extensions really work and hesitate to get one. To let you get more information before adding that one to your cart, this article is for explaining how hand-tied hair extensions work on thin hair.

Potential Benefit of Hand-Tied Extensions For Thin Hair

Safe and Comfortable

Because of the lightweight, hand-tied extensions work very well on thin hair. Moreover, there is no glue, heat, and chemicals needed when installing hand-tied hair extensions, so it will minimize the damage to your hair. If you get hand-tied hair extensions installed by an experienced hair stylist, you will reduce the risk of scalp damaging and shedding. 

Longevity and Easy Maintenance

With proper care, hand-tied hair extensions can last up to 10 months. This means that you won’t have to touch your hair extensions every day. In addition, Unlike other types of hair extensions, hand-tied hair extensions don’t require special products and complex hair care routines. For those who don’t have time for styling everyday, hand-tied hair extensions are a really great choice.

Customizable Placement

Hand-tied extensions offer flexibility in placement, making them suitable for thin hair. A skilled stylist can strategically position the extensions in areas where more volume is desired, ensuring a balanced and natural look. They can also customize the number of wefts used to match the density of your natural hair, creating a seamless and harmonious result.

Things you have to consider before getting hand-tied hair extensions on thin hair

Length and thickness

When choosing hand-tied hair extensions for thin hair, you have to pay attention to the length and thickness of them. Length and thickness determine the weight of hand-tied extensions. Consider getting suitable hand-tied hair extensions that meet your personal goals and are also good for your hair health. Too thick and long hair extensions will make your hair thinning get worse.

Hair type and texture 

While hair extensions length and thickness impact on your natural hair health, hair type and texture impact directly on how seamlessly your hair will look. You have to choose the type and texture that match your natural hair, especially with thin hair which is hard to blend because of low density. You can compare the extensions with your hair side by side if you buy in store or get expert’s advice to get the best one if you buy online.


Hand-tied hair extensions are not that expensive themselves. However, we have to get experienced stylists to install hand-tied extensions on thin hair for us. And the cost for 4-6 hours installing hand-tied hair extensions is not cheap. Moreover, we have to meet them after every 4-5 weeks to fix the extensions. Can you imagine the cost for a year wearing and moving up beautiful hand-tied extensions? 

Although hand-tied extensions are very great, you shouldn’t get them if you don’t have a big budget.

Extensions Quality

The process of installing and uninstalling hand-tied hair extensions not only costs us hundreds of dollars, it also puts us at risk of hair damage. That’s why I always tell my followers to buy high quality human hair which is more durable. Moreover, human hair is shiner and more natural looking than synthetic fibers.
