How To Blend Clip-In Hair Extensions With Thin Hair
If you have fine hair and are looking for some guidance on how to wear your clip-in Hair extensions, you've come to the right place.
Sometimes, it can be a little tricky to fully hide the clips of your hair extensions. The steps we share with you in this post, however, will help you blend your extensions naturally and seamlessly!
*Important: If you are experiencing excessive hair loss or medical hair loss conditions, we strongly advise to consult with your doctor first, to discuss if wearing clip-in hair extensions is right for you.
Tip #1: Make a solid base for the wefts
In order for the weft to have something to hold on to without sliding, it is important to create a firm and thick base to which you will clip the weft. This will help secure it in place and prevent tugging on your hair. You can create this base by teasing the roots of the section to which the weft will be clipped on.
Tip #2: Find the safe zone
A very important step when clipping in your extensions is figuring out what your 'safe zone' is. This is the area on your head where the clips will not be seen. Usually, for fine hair, the safe zone is anywhere below the line of your eyebrows. Draw an imaginary circle around your head from one eyebrow to another; anywhere below that circle is where your wefts are going to be clipped in.
Tip #3: Position your wefts
We all have different hair types, head sizes, shapes, etc. Therefore, although there is a general sequence in which extensions should be clipped (can be found here), there is no one right way to do it. Play around with the wefts and find what positioning works best for you. Fine-haired ladies especially need to pay attention to the top of the head, to make sure that the wefts aren't peeking through (remember the safe zone!). Read the next tip for some positioning suggestions.
Tip #4: Choose your wefts
Sometimes, you won't need to use all the wefts, and that's absolutely okay. If you're struggling to find space on your head for all the wefts, there is a good chance that you don't need to use all of them. Figure out which sequence works with what wefts, and only use those.
Tip #5: Tease your Crown
Once your extensions are clipped in, you will notice the difference right away in how much longer and thicker your hair feels (great feeling, right??). Naturally, it may be noticeable that you have more hair at the bottom than at the top of your head. To make it look more natural, it's a great idea to tease your hair at the crown to add some volume to match the rest of your hair. This will give an overall harmonious, voluminous look.
Tip #6: Choose the Right Extensions
If you have fine hair, we recommend going with the 120g Hair extensions, as they are specifically designed for thinner hair. This set will blend in beautifully with your fine hair; give length and volume, while maintaining a very natural looking effect.
Tip #7: Layer Them
Especially if your natural hair is layered, adding layers to your Hair extensions by a professional hairstylist can make all the difference! If you decide to get them cut, we recommend having them already clipped into your hair during the haircut. It will also be very helpful for you to come up with a numbering system for the wefts, so that you know exactly where each weft is supposed to be clipped in for the future uses.
Tip #8: Style Your Extensions
Although full shine look amazing with straight hair, wavy or curled styles look a lot more natural. Wrap your natural hair and the extensions together around a curling iron to make sure they flow into one another.
