Will Extensions Damage Fine Thin Hair?

Hair texture varies from person to person, and people with extremely fine and brittle hair should not attempt hair extensions. However, with professional installation done by an expert your hair will not be damaged by hair extensions. Your hair stylist will advise you on the amount of hair extensions appropriate for hair texture. Your best bet is to listen to the professional and not go for more extensions than recommended.

Hair extensions look great, but require special gentle care, so not to cause damage or even hair loss. Extensions often require your hair to be brushed, which can be tough for any hair, let alone a thin hair type. Use special detangling brush recommended by your stylist and be extra gentle. Working with a professional stylist will help you avoid most hair damage.

What Type of Extensions Are Best for Fine Thin Hair?

Although your experienced stylist will help you choose the best hair extensions for your fine hair, it’s still a good idea to know the extensions for thin hair yourself.  We recommend tape-in hair extension for fine or thin hair. As the name suggests, the tape -in extensions have a 1.5-inch bonding tape with medical grade adhesive. Tape is used to hold your hair securely at the root and have larger bonding area than keratin or microbeads. When installed properly, tape-ins will distribute stress more evenly among your hair strands. That will result in less hair loss or breakage during daily activities.

Tape-in hair extensions made in Europe are thin and lightweight. Other extensions, produced in China or especially India are heavier and will add more weight to the same 1.5-inch tape sandwich. Therefore, always ask for European extensions for thin or fine hair.

Aside from the fact that Tape-in hair extensions are lightweight, your hair does not need additional stress that comes with keratin or microbeads installation. Keratin requires heat and microbeads require metal rings to be installed. Both methods can result in hair damage when done by inexperienced stylist. On the other hand, tape extensions will require adhesive to install and alcohol to remove. Neither will cause any damage when done even by beginners.
