What are the best extensions for fine hair?

So anything that's not going to damage their hair.

If you have fine hair like myself, I've always experienced that if something's attached to my actual hair then it ends up stressing the follicle out and I lose more hair.

It also causes breakage.

Something like the halo is really great in that sense because it's not attached to the hair at all, so it can't damage the hair.

Sometimes clip-ins work well for people with fine hair, but again you're attaching something to the hair.

So if you do want to wear something like that often, you do run the risk of the clip-ins also stressing out your hair.

So another great thing about using the halo with fine hair is that you can actually hide the halo a lot better with fine hair than you can with permanent hair extensions or clip-ins.

That's purely because the nature of the halo is that sits quite low underneath your hair.

So you can actually afford to have more of your hair over the top to hide the halo band.

Whereas if you have permanents or clip-ins you sort of generally need to have them positioned a little bit higher up.

That's just how they work because they need to be spread out all over your head and then you end up seeing them a little bit more if you don't have as much hair to cover those clips.

What are the best extensions for damaged hair?

Halo extensions are really great for damaged hair because they're the only extensions that aren't invasive.

The fine halo is great for damaged hair because it just gives you that bit of extra volume so that it still looks like your hair, but the healthiest version of your hair.

It's a great alternative to have hair that looks healthier without it looking like your hair has just grown dramatically overnight.

It's the best compliment you can get when it's not obvious that you have extensions in!

Can you colour or tone halo hair extensions?

You can totally do it, you just need to wet your hair first and only ever tone it or colour it a couple of shades darker than the color that you've got.

Never lighter.

You would never bleach hair extensions just because they've already been through so many processes, it's not like actual hair anymore that's attached to the scalp and is getting nutrients.

You would just dry the halo out if you bleach it.

Another thing to keep in mind with our halo hair extensions is that each halo is going to react differently because it's come from a different person.

You just have to be cautious because it is human hair and every human's hair is different from the other.

It depends on the products that you're using as well.

Different salons use different brands of colouring and toners, so some work better than others.

Your best bet is to go with a salon that has coloured a lot of Remy hair extensions before, successfully, so you can trust that their products generally do work on Remy hair.

Another option if your hair is a shade or two off matching the halo is to colour or tone your hair to match your halo.

So you would have your hair toned or have foils or highlights put in to match the halo.

Extensions are fun because you can just experiment with having different lengths of hair, but when it comes to everyday use you really do just want extensions to make your hair look natural and healthy without people being able to tell that you're wearing anything.
