Clip in human hair extensions have their place in the beauty world. They are used to fill in or fill out parts of your hair when you’re wearing certain hairstyles that require lots of volume. Celebrities use these hair extensions as a quick fix for a hair style that needs to be just perfect for only a few hours. They are normally only supposed to be in your hair for 12 hours or less. This is really stretching it. The ideal time period is actually 6 hours or less. However many people think that they can wear clip in extensions for longer than this period of time. They feel that it’s harmless and that it won’t damage your hair if you use it every once in a while.
This assumption isn’t entirely true. Clip in human hair extensions can damage your hair. They add stress to your hair and to your scalp. If you use clip in extensions in roughly the same spots on a regular basis, you can wind up thinning out your hair in those spots. You can also wind up pulling your hair out if they aren’t removed the proper way. There are alternatives to clip in hair extensions. These methods are stress free on your hair, and are not easy to detect. They actually help protect your hair from damage, and last much, much longer than traditional clip in extensions.
One method is the micro ring. The micro ring is just a very tiny ring that is attached to your hair by or near the roots. The ring itself is colour matched, so it is difficult for others to tell you’re wearing extensions. It is lightweight, so it doesn’t weigh a lot and make your head feel heavy. And because it’s a ring that, it doesn’t put stress on your hair either. This is a great alternative to clip in human extensions, gluing and braiding. It can add volume and colour without the normal damage that comes from wearing extensions.
Micro rings are often used by people who have thinning hair as well. They can cover up bald spots or patches where your hair is so thin your scalp can be seen. Again, there is no added stress with micro rings. In fact, unlike clip in extensions, using micro rings actually makes your hair healthier. It surrounds your own with the extension, so that your it isn’t exposed to the normal, everyday activities that damage it. Micro ring extensions can last up to five months.
