What kind of Hair Extensions are you after?
Whether you should invest in clip-in or tape-in extensions largely depends on what you’re looking for: do you want a quick hair extension piece or set that you can throw on for a Saturday night party or as part of your daily beauty regimen, or a (semi) permanent addition to your look? Clip-In extensions should only be worn for a day at a time, and should be promptly removed each evening before you go to sleep. They can last up to a year, depending on how often they are used and if they are cared for properly. They are easy to install
Tape-ins, once installed, can remain part of your natural hair for six to eight weeks, at which point they should be moved up to cover hair that's grown out.
Clip-in hair does, however, take the cake when it comes to ease of use. Unlike tape-ins, you won’t need to pay a visit to the salon to install clip-ins. Tape-ins require some maintenance, and can only be installed for months at a time, with maintenance being needed every 6 to 8 weeks. With clip-ins, all you need to do is watch a quick YouTube video, read a helpful article, and practice a few times and you’ll be a clip-in expert.
When it comes to lifestyle, you will need to consider which one would be more convenient for you. For example, if you’re the type of girl who refuses to leave the house without her extensions in, tape ins, which promise to make it easier to get ready on those dark and dreary Monday mornings is going to sound very appealing.Tape ins take away the ‘clipping in and out’ of hair extensions, making a perfect choice for daily wear.
Clip in hair extensions are better for you if you want more freedom with how and when you wear hair extensions, offering a more temporary method. Tape in hair extensions are better if you want a semi-permanent alternative (tape in can last 6 to 8 weeks , or even longer if well maintained.
Clip ins offer a more temporary hair extension method, in which you can take them out when you go to bed, shower, bathe or swim. If you want little effort and big impact, then clip in hair extensions are for you and they are by far the most popular form of extension. You can get them in various lengths and thicknesses with clips sewn into the strands.
