Hair Extensions for Fine Haired Ladies

Machine and hand-tied wefted hair extensions are popular among African American and Latino women because their hair is coarser and strong enough to thrive while being braided and having extensions sewn on.  But for Caucasian and Asian women, that process can actually do more harm than good because typically your hair is a bit thinner.  A great choice of hair extensions for fine haired ladies would be either keratin bonded or tape extensions.

hair extensions for fine haired ladiesKeratin bonded hair extensions, also called I-tipped extensions or fusion hair extensions, are normally installed using a strand by strand method either through a heat bonding process or using microloops.  It is highly recommended to have keratin bonded extensions installed by an experienced professional for the best results.  Because these extensions are added strand by strand, they are very versatile and your hair can be styled in almost any way you imagine.

Tape extensions are a newer type of technology where the hair is mounted on wefts with a special type of adhesive pre-applied to the underside.  After parting your hair in a wide section, simply peel back the tape and apply to the underside of your hair, holding in place for about 30 seconds.  On the top of the same section of hair, apply a second tape extension to sandwich your natural hair between the two pieces.  For added security, gently press the tape extensions between the plates of a ceramic flat iron to help the adhesive stick a bit better.  Because tape extension are installed in wefts, you will have a bit less versatility.

Depending on the density of your hair, you can expect your hair extensions to last anywhere from two (for very fine textures) to five months.  When it is time for removal, again be sure to visit a professional who will dissolve the bonds rather than trying to yank them out at home.
