Best clip-in hair extensions
Whether you want extensions for everyday wear or to enhance your look for a special occasion, one thing’s for sure: going to a salon for them will cost you a lot. Chances are, it will be more money than you want to spend.
Luckily, there are a lot of high quality, easy to use, do-it-yourself clip-in hair extensions on the market today. Here are some of the best one’s available:
Euronext clip-in Human Hair Extensions are a little less bulky than some other brands, which makes them great for a beginner. It will help you get used to wearing them plus they add length more than volume, which looks a little more natural.
These extensions are clip-in and made of real human hair. You can use the same styling tools and products you use on your own hair, including curlers and straighteners as well as dye and bleach. In fact, they’re particularly easy to dye so you’ll be able to change them to suit your needs. They come in 9 different colors. Keep in mind that they’ll react to dye the same way your natural hair would so you won’t be able to make extreme color changes unless you use bleach. For example, if you’re planning to dye them to a trendy pastel or grey, you probably won’t get the results you’re looking for with a dark brown extension. The light the extension, the easier it will accept dye, just like the hair on your head.
Another great thing about these is that they’re really simple to apply. The clip right in and sit flat against your scalp. Overall, these extensions are built to last and a really good choice for anyone who is using extensions for the first time.
The BHF Hair Remy Human Hair clip-in Extensions come in a range of lengths and colors. Choose from 14, 16, 18, or 20 inches and bleach blonde, dark brown, jet black, and off black. Each extension has 14 clips that are designed with silicone inserts to help get a good grip when clipping in the extensions.
One downside to these it that they don’t come with a lot of hair. In fact, the manufacturer recommends getting 2 packs for thin hair and 3 or more for thick hair. The good news is that they’re affordable and often offer discounts if you buy multiple packs.
These are made of human hair and can be styled just as you would your own hair. They’re well made, too, with no shedding, double wefts, and they even keep their thickness from clip to end. You can get super long, voluminous hair easily when you use these extensions from BHF Hair.
If you’re looking for something a little different, check out these full head extensions from EECHO. Rather than being small pieces that you clip-in individually to build your style, this set is a long strand that is designed to clip across the width of your whole head.
These extensions are not made with real human hair. Rather, they use a heat resistant fibers that can withstand the heat of your styling tools up to 275 degrees. They will build up static differently than your natural hair that can be combatted by spraying them with watered down hair conditioner. Regular hair dyes won’t work on these, either. But don’t worry, with the number of colors they offer you should be able to find a shade that will blend. There are 19 different colors in all, anything from silver grey to light blond.
UNice makes their extensions with 100% virgin human hair. You can dye it and bleach it to suit your own color needs. These extensions have a double strong weft and are thick and healthy. That means no split or dry ends. They have a lot of happy customers, too.
Something really cool about these extensions is that they come in a few different styles in addition to this body wave texture, including silky straight, kinky curly, loose waves, and even ombre. The lengths that each are available in vary depending on the style but range from roughly 8 – 26 inches. We should mention that once you wash the hair, it will not return to the same style. Just like natural hair, when you wash it, it reverts to its natural style and texture.
These Beauty Plus Clip On Extensions are a little larger than some of the others we reviewed. Each pack is 120 grams and has 20 clips to hold it in place. It’s made of 100% human hair the can be colored, styled, and cut. Wash them as needed, depending on how often you wear them and how much product you use on them. Basically, treat it the same as you do your own hair.
In total, there are 6 lengths and 6 colors available from this brand. They’re all well-crafted double wefts that keep their thickness down the length of the strand. Plus, they won’t shed or tangle.
DayDream Hair Halo extensions are a little different from the products we’re looked at so far because they don’t have clips. Instead, the extensions are attached to a thin wire. You place this on your head almost like a headband – or halo! – and pull the top layers of your hair over it once it’s in place. Your natural hair hides the wire and holds it in place. Plus, there’s no need to worry about clips which makes it so much easier to put in.
These extensions are 12 – 12.5 inches wide and cover the back and both sides of your head. The extensions are sewn on in layers and have a lace backing so they won’t cause any itching or irritation to your scalp. They’re made of real hair and can be dyed, cut, and styled. And get this – there are 21 different colors to choose from, including colors with highlights and some with lowlights. Because of how these are work – with the top half of your hair covering the wire – choose a color that matches the bottom and ends of your hair to get a more natural looking match. The bottom of your hairs is naturally a little darker than the top because it doesn’t get exposed to as much sunlight. Worried you picked the wrong color? Something cool Daydream Hair does is they send you chose. If one of these colors is a better match, you can exchange it within a week’s’ time.
