Different Types of Hair Extensions
March 10, 2023
When it comes to hair extensions, the options are endless. From clip-ins to tape-ins, sew-ins to microbeads, there are so many different types of hair extensions to choose from. But how do you know which type of extension is right for you? And once you’ve chosen your perfect set of extensions, how do you take care of them?
In this blog post, we’ll break down the most popular types of hair extensions and give you some tips on how to care for them using products from Orlando Pita Play.
Clip-In Hair Extensions
Clip-in hair extensions are perfect for those who want to add length or volume to their hair for a special occasion or just for fun. They’re easy to apply and remove and can be reused multiple times. Clip-in extensions come in a variety of lengths, colors, and textures so you can find the perfect match for your hair.
To care for your clip-in extensions, use a heat protectant and conditioner like the Atmos-Shield Hair Protectant and High Spirited Leave-In Conditioner. This will help keep your extensions looking shiny and healthy while protecting them from heat damage. When you’re not wearing your clip-ins, store them in a cool, dry place to avoid tangling and damage.
Tape-In Hair Extensions
Tape-in hair extensions are a great option for those who want a more permanent solution to their hair extensions. The extensions are applied to the hair using a special tape and can last up to eight weeks with proper care. Tape-in extensions are a great way to add length and volume to your hair without the need for frequent maintenance.
To care for your tape-in extensions, use a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner like our Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner. This will help keep your extensions looking full and voluminous while keeping them soft and smooth. Avoid using any products that contain alcohol or oil, as these can break down the tape adhesive and cause the extensions to fall out.
Sew-In Hair Extensions
Sew-in hair extensions are a more traditional method of hair extension installation. The extensions are sewn into small braids in the hair and can last up to eight weeks with proper care. Sew-in extensions are a great option for those who want a more natural look and don’t want to use heat or glue on their hair.
To care for your sew-in extensions, use a gentle shampoo and conditioner like our Intensive Repair Shampoo and Conditioner. This will help keep your extensions looking clean and healthy while keeping your scalp moisturized. When sleeping, tie your hair up in a loose bun or braid to avoid tangling and damage.
Microbead Hair Extensions
Microbead hair extensions are a newer type of extension that uses small beads to attach the extensions to the hair. The beads are crimped onto the hair, creating a secure hold that can last up to eight weeks. Microbead extensions are a great option for those with fine hair, as they’re lightweight and won’t cause damage or breakage.
To care for your microbead extensions, you’ll want to apply a deep conditioning treatment every other wash. We recommend our Time Capsule Fortifying Treatment Mask. This mask will help keep your extensions looking shiny and smooth!
