These extensions last for 1-2 months. Generally, it causes some damage to the natural hair.

Therefore, it is not recommended.


2) Hair weft: Clip-In hair extensions

A hair weft (strips of real human hair/ synthetic hair) looks like a little curtain of hair attached together at the top and free flowing at the bottom. They come in sets of 8-10.

In clip-in hair extensions, each strip has small clips already attached to them. The clips are clipped into the hair between sections. The clips remain hidden and give a natural look.

This method is much easier and safer as it does not damage the natural hair and can be easily done at home. It generally takes 10-15 minutes to fix them up.
