It is no secret that getting the best weaves or extensions for your hair can seem like an unsolvable problem. Nowadays, your hair options are almost limitless making the process of choosing the best hair a difficult task.
Every woman has a unique look when it comes to hair. For instance, some have fine thin hair, while other have resilient thick hair. However, clip-ins and sew-ins can put all of us ladies on the same level. You can achieve just about any look you wish by using different techniques and types of extensions and weaves.
As I am sure you are well aware there is large variety of weave and extension options available. However, we are going to focus on three commonly used ones that can work for you.
Hair Options: Clip-Ins
Clip-ins have become a go-to for a lot of women for quite a while now. They are perfect for women with fine or thin hair. Why are clip-ins great for this hair type? Thin hair breaks easily when too much pressure is applied. Clip-ins can be applied regularly without the worry of hair breakage.
Wearing them is as easy as it sounds. You clip the hair extensions onto your hair. The “clip” securely holds everything in place. I like clip-ins because you can quickly and easily change your hairstyle, add a pop of color or length. It is simple to change your look everyday if that is what you’re into.

Hair Options: Bonding
This may be ideal for the diva who wants fullness or length for a shorter period of time. We hear horror stories about bonding hair because people just have not taken care of their extensions. What should you do to make sure you keep your hair healthy? Follow the hair options and tips below.
- Glue can dry out your hair, so use conditioner to combat this.
- If your extensions are heavy, they can pull on your scalp which will result in thinning hair. So, lighten up the hair.
- Leaving bonded hair extensions in your hair for long periods of time. This is a big no-no. Don’t keep them in your hair longer than 2 to 3 weeks.
Bonding can be a good solution for a few pieces of hair here and there. Don’t be scared of the glue, but don’t overdo either.
Hair Options: Sew-Ins
I think most ladies opt for sew-in’s because they tend to last a long time, the hair looks great and there is a great deal of versatility in style preferences. The biggest drawback is that it can be an expensive. A trip to the salon will start around $150. Maintenance is another issue as your hair needs to be redone every three months. That’s why if you are on a tight budget, clip-in extensions may be a more economical way to go.
So, there you have it. There may be lots of hair options today, but to get started just pick either clip-ins, bonded or sew-ins. No matter which option you go for you will look fabulous!
