Clip-in vs. Permanent Extensions
Hair extensions come in a variety of styles and are used to address a wide range of hair issues. Whether you want to thicken your hair, make it longer, change the color, or simply glam up for a special occasion, extensions are the answer. But did you know that you can leave them on for several weeks before having to remove them?
Of course, not all types, but there are options for those of you looking for a more long-term solution. In today's blog, we'll go over the differences between temporary clip-in extensions and permanent extensions to help you decide which is best for you and your lifestyle.
Difference Between Clip-in and Permanent Hair Extensions
Permanent Hair Extensions are wefts or individual strands of human hair attached to your own hair for weeks, and in some cases months, before being removed or re-positioned. They require less daily styling than clip-in options and have a far more natural finish, but they require more care to maintain and usually cost more for the initial application.
Clip-In hair extensions are a type of temporary hair extension that is applied and removed on the same day and does not require professional assistance to put in or remove. This type is ideal for people who only want to use hair extensions on special occasions or for events.
Permanent Hair Extensions
#1 Keratin / Protein Bonded Extensions (Glue ins):
These are hair extensions that are fused and melted to your own hair's keratin and protein (the glue part) using heat. Depending on the number of permanent hair extensions you require or want, the attachment process can take up to 2-4 hours or longer.
If the hair is still in good condition, this would need to be removed or reapplied after about 6 to 10 weeks as it grows out. For washing permanent hair extensions, we advise having your hair washed with alcohol-, paraben-, and sulfate-free shampoo by a professional stylist or Diva Divine Hair Extension boutique.
Additionally, you don't have to buy new hair. You can reuse the permanent hair extensions by using our rebounding service at Diva Divine Hair Extension boutiques.
Benefits: A natural finish, especially if you have highlights and low-lights, allowing you to buy pieces of various colors to perfectly match them. Since you cannot take the extensions out, you have thicker, fuller hair constantly.
If the technician is skilled, chooses high-quality hair, chooses the right thickness of each strand, and chooses the right colour of bonding glue, it can look very natural.
Reminder: Only a licensed Diva Divine Hair Extension professional may apply this. These shouldn't be used by friends or family members.
#2 Micro Ring / Loop / Bead Extensions:
Small sections of your hair are clamped to a metal loop to secure these hair extensions. Depending on how many micro ring extensions you want or need, the procedure typically takes two to three hours.
The hair extensions can last 6 to 8 weeks before needing to be carefully removed by your stylist. For washing permanent hair extensions, we advise having your hair washed with alcohol-, paraben-, and sulfate-free shampoo by a professional stylist or Diva Divine Hair Extension boutique.
Additionally, you don't have to buy new hair. You can reuse the permanent hair extensions at Diva Divine Hair Extension boutiques thanks to our re-bonding service.
Benefits: Longer, fuller hair all the time. Additionally, it's simple to match up your high and low lights. Micro ring extensions are the best choice for clients who are more hesitant to apply hair extensions with heat because they don't require any heat during the installation or removal process.
#3 Tape-in Extensions:
The top of each section of these hair extensions has a strip of medical adhesive tape that you stick to your own hair. Depending on the technician, applying takes less than an hour.
The lifespan of tape extensions is six to eight weeks. To remove the tape hair extensions, apply tape hair extension remover to your hair and comb it through with a fine-toothed comb.
Once all of the adhesive glue has been removed, more tape hair extension remover is applied to your hair and combed through. For washing permanent hair extensions, we advise having your hair washed with alcohol-, paraben-, and sulfate-free shampoo by a professional stylist or Diva Divine Hair Extension boutique.
Additionally, you don't have to buy new hair. You can reuse the permanent hair extensions by having them re-taped at Diva Divine Hair Extension boutiques.
Benefits: In comparison to other permanent extensions, the Tape hair extension installation process is quicker. If you take care of the tape ins while wearing them, you can use them again.Lightweight, comfortable, and effective around-the-clock The fastest and simplest permanent hair extension option is Diva Divine Tape, but it also lasts the shortest before needing to be reinstalled.
#4 Clip-in Extensions:
Extensions that already have clips fastened to the wefts (pieces). Since the Clip in Hair Extensions are just clips, you can apply them to your own hair without the assistance of a professional.
can last three months to a year, and even longer with careful maintenance using high-quality products, masks, and argan oil.
Benefits: Clip-in hair extensions are incredibly simple to apply, and you won't need to return to the salon often to do so. By only having to clip the wefts in for 5–10 minutes, you can save time. Unlike permanent hair extensions that are washed with your own hair every time, clip-in extensions only require washing every 10 wears.
