It can be difficult to find the right hairstyle when you have thin hair. Hair extensions will be a lifesaver, giving you a bouncy feeling and thickening your hair. In this article, Mic Hair's hairstylist will help you choose the right hair extensions for thin hair.

Are Hair Extensions Bad For Thin Hair?

Thin hair means having fewer thick strands that may be less of the density. When choosing hair extensions, you may wonder whether hair extensions are safe for thin hair or not. 

It is a fact that not all types of hair extensions bring a gentle feeling to your hair. Especially with thin hair, hair loss will get worse as it strains your natural hair strands. Hair extensions will be bad for thin hair if it doesn't feel gentle on the scalp. However, if you install them in the right way and treat them properly, the damage will not be an issue anymore. To get this result, you have to choose the best hair extensions for thin hair and follow the profession's advices.

What Make The Best Hair Extensions For Thin Hair?

There are 3 important factors that hair extensions for thin hair must achieve:

- Thin and light texture: Thin and light hair extensions will not cause your naturally thin hair to fall out. Instead, it will hide within your thin hair to create a certain thickness and bounce.

- Extension method: According to hair extension experts, hand-tied extensions on thin hair are ideal for those seeking a comfortable, long-lasting solution to hair enhancement.

- Easy to care for: after being attached to thin hair, hair extensions need to be easy to care for, cause less hair tangles, and have high durability.

What Types of Hair Extensions Can Be Used for Thin Hair?

The hair extension market has many types of hair extensions from glued, clip-on, heat-applied or manual hand extensions such as tape-in, clip-in, u-tip, v-tip, flat-tip, nano ring and halo hair extensions. Each type will have its advantages and disadvantages suitable for each hair type and depending on usage needs. 

Hair extension experts have pointed out 4 popular types of hair extensions that are considered suitable for use with thin hair as follows:

1. Tape-In Hair Extensions For Thin Hair

Tape-in hair extensions consist of thin strands of hair with a strong adhesive strip on one side. Apply tape in hair extensions to your natural hair by sandwiching a small amount of natural hair between two adhesive strips.

The best part about this method is that taping in wefts does not require large amounts of existing hair which makes it perfect for thin hair beauties.

Tape-in is the most highly recommended option to add volume to thin hair. There's no exaggeration to the claim - as tape-in extensions offer the most natural appearance and pose the least risk of damage to natural hair. However, there is one point you need to keep in mind when removing the adhesive strip because it can cause damage to your hair. If you can't remove the tape in hair extensions carefully at home, visit a professional to have it done to ensure they do not strain your natural strands.

Another variant of tape-in extensions, the micro tape-in extensions significantly reduces the potential damage. In this technique, tiny pieces of individual hair strands are taped into the hair to increase hair volume. This method is most recommended for people who prefer to wear strand-by-strand extensions without causing too much damage.

2. Clip-In Hair Extensions For Thin Hair

Clip-in hair extension is a type of weave hair with clips sewn at one side of the weave root. This is a temporary extension method, that you can install easily. Exactly as its name, you can attach this hair to your natural hair by clipping it to your hair. 

Unlike tape-in hair extensions, installation and removal of clip-in hair extensions can be done flexibly yourself. If you want to quickly increase the thickness and length of thin hair while still being able to create your favourite style, clip-in extensions are the most suitable choice.

Although clip-in extensions offer such effectiveness and versatility, you need to buy from a reputable place to ensure the best quality clip-in hair. 

3. Nano Ring Hair Extensions For Thin Hair

Nano tip hair extensions are attached to your natural hair by placing small sections of extensions in a nano ring. 

Nano rings are 90% smaller compared to micro rings and make a perfect choice for beauties with super thin hair. The rings look tidy and are super discreet due to their tiny size. 

Nano tip hair extensions method eliminates the need for heat or adhesives, making it a healthier option for your thin hair. They can hide in natural hair, especially on the top of the head where the extension site can be most visible. Thanks to that, your hair roots can swell slightly in a very natural way. To apply nano ring hair extensions, you need to go to a professional hair extension specialist and cannot install them yourself like clip-in or tape-in hair extensions.

4. Halo Hair Extensions For Thin Hair

Halo extensions are like a headband made of thick hair that you wear on your head, similar to a weave. Halo hair extensions are for people with thinning hair. With the lightweight, this type of hair extension doesn't cause any damage to your scalp.

Halo hair extensions offer an innovative and protective way to add fullness and length to thin hair. With just a few simple steps, you will have naturally beautiful hair.

You need to avoid the following types of hair extensions to protect your thin hair:

  • - Heavy clip-in extensions can damage fine hair and even cause bald patches in the long term.
  • - Hot and cold fusion not only cause serious damage but they also can be visible through fine hair strands.
