Hair extensions clips (strips and bits):
The most practical and most sustainable in my opinion! These are long strips of varying lengths. These clips are attached to the hairline.
The Negative - You need to apply them and remove them daily.
The Positive - You can re use them and change them up to suit your style or outfit for the day. Hair extension clips can last several months, even a year or two all depending on the quality and care that you give them.
Extensions glued to your hair (fushion):
Get these done at the hairdresser, it lasts 2-3 months in all. It's a bit more expensive than extensions that clip on, but the effect is super nice.
The Negative - After a month, some little bits start to fall off and you need to apply more glue. When it comes time to remove the glue from your head there is a lot of damage done to your natural hair from the roots.
The Positive - You don't need to worry about applying them daily as they are attached to your head permanently. The effect is supernatural.
Extensions woven into her head (weave):
A technique that I know a little less about. This method consists of extension bands like those with the clip, except that they are sewn into your hair on french braids.
The Negative -If extensions are very long and heavy it can put pressure on your hair and pull it out. Extensive use of this method over a long time can cause thinning of your own hair.
The Positive - Again, you are not obliged to remove them and place them every day, it is about 1 to 2 months well sewn into your head. And finally, each tape is reusable for sewing again later in your head, so it is far cheaper than those that are glued on!
