The Best Hair Extensions For Fine Hair

The Best Hair Extensions For Fine Hair

Finding the best hair extensions for fine hair can be tricky for those of us with breakage-prone hair. We already have less hair to hide pesky clips and the thought of losing any of our natural strands simply isn't an option. While it may seem like there are tons of hair extensions out there, many are not designed for fine hair types.

If you have breakage caused by over styling, postpartum thinning, or just naturally finer hair, the key to finding the best hair extension for your hair type is one that preserves its natural health while still giving you the thick, lush volume you desire. Buyer beware: most hair extensions don't prioritize this.

If you're on the hunt for your first hair extensions, or you're suddenly noticing the damage your current extensions are causing, here are a few things to look for when searching for hair extensions that are actually fine hair friendly.

Tip 1: Avoid Hair Extensions That Cause Damage to Your Hair

The best hair extensions are a solution for fine hair, not a cause of fine hair. Steer clear of any hair extensions that use clips, tapes, or glues to attach to your hair—these add weight at the root causing both immediate and long term damage where it matters most (the root!)

The best hair extensions for fine hair are ones that are able to sit on top of the hair as opposed to latching onto your strands for dear life. All extensions will add mass so you don't want weak strands to be bearing all that weight. This is especially true if you've recently bleached your hair or got your roots done as hair will be even more brittle than usual.

Tip 2: Choose Extensions That You Can Hide Within Your Natural Hair

If you have fine hair, it's important to get extensions that will blend well with your natural hair's density. Trying to make thin hair look thick with non-graded hair extensions can not only damage your hair (see tip 1), but also just look unnatural.

When hair extension thickness isn't “graded”, it means you get the same thickness from end to end which will inevitably get you way more “oh, she's wearing her extensions today” than “I wonder why her hair looks so good”.

This is where clips get pesky again: even if you choose a thinner weight in a clip-on hair extension, you still have to account for the thickness of the clips! Here, a halo hair extension is better suited for fine hair as it uses just a thin, clear wire to hold the weft.



Tip 3: Opt for ProGrade Remy Hair

You already care for your own hair's health, so make sure your fine hair approved hair extensions are on the same mission. Fine hair usually needs a bit more work in the styling department to get more volume, which means you'll be heat styling your hair extensions just as often too!

The best hair extensions for fine hair styling are those patented with 100% human, ProGrade Remy hair. This means they can withstand heat like your natural hair (with a heat protectant of course), they'll remain soft after washing and wearing, and they won't frizz like synthetic hair.

Tip 4: Look for Thickening Not Just Lengthening

Hair extensions do just that: extend your hair. But for fine hair, what we often need more of is density, fullness, and gap coverage. Be realistic with your hair extensions and what you want from them. We root for volumised ends that make hair look healthier.

For everyday: a FINE thickness will be less heavy and give you a super natural fullness to ends. You can maybe get a little length with these weights if you have very fine hair to begin with, but anything around a FINE thickness will be more of a supplement to hair. You can even go for a MEDIUM or mid-level thickness for everyday if you want thicker hair or are starting off with medium to fine hair.

For special occasions: If you want lots of volume AND length, grab a thicker weight in hair extensions. These are usually heavier and much fuller so they aren't meant to be worn every single day for hours on end. You totally can, but it can be a lot of hair to wear for your 9-5.




Tip 5: Choose Hair Extensions Designed Specially For Fine Hair

“After years of experimenting with hair extensions from salon weaves to clip-ins at home, no hair extensions made my fine hair feel like a priority...” This is why we created Sitting Pretty Halo Hair Extensions. As fine haired honeys ourselves, we were sacrificing our already-delicate hair's health every time we wanted to add volume with extensions.

That's why we created the first hair extensions for fine hair. For almost 10 years, we've been nailing what makes the best hair extensions for fine hair: from damage-free installation methods to longer lasting hair materials.

Hi Cherelle, yes depending on the length of your hair you wear halo extensions with short hair.

It works best if your hair is shoulder length or longer, but can still be worn if it is shorter.
