Semi-Permanent Hair Extensions vs. Clip-in Hair Extensions

If you are considering getting hair extensions done, you may have considered, or may have already tried, clip-in hair extensions. These temporary extensions are great for occasional wear, or for trying to get a feel of whether or not hair extensions are for you. The downside, however, is that clip-in in hair extensions can be very damaging to your hair if worn on a regular basis.

So why are clip-in hair extensions so damaging, you ask?

Well, unlike semi-permanent hair extensions, clip-in hair extensions utilize a metal clip, which bends your hair when snapped into place and puts stress on the follicles. This stress, along with the constant pull of the weight of the hair extension, can cause your hair to become brittle and break, or even worse, create a bald spot where the clip-in rests! This is definitely not a desired result when you are striving for fuller or longer hair.

Semi-permanent hair extensions also have the added benefit of being affixed to your hair, which means you don’t have to spend time putting them in each day, and unlike clip-in hair extensions, semi-permanent hair extensions can be worn to bed, while bathing, and during physical activities such as swimming as long as they are properly cared for. Overall, semi-permanent hair extensions are less damaging and are a better choice for your hair than clip-in hair extensions.

So, now that you know how clip-in hair extensions compare to the real thing, show your hair how much you love it - toss out those old clip-ins and contact your Celebrity Extensions specialist today!
