Having longer hair means you can try out more gorgeous hairstyles. Sadly, even long hair can’t save you if your hair’s too thin or limp to hold up your hairdo well.
Nowadays, there are various hair treatments that you can undergo if you want to have long, flowing, voluminous hair. These treatments will give you more hair strands per hair follicle, which will give the appearance of thicker hair. However, not everyone’s lucky enough to undergo these treatments.
The perfect alternative? Using hair extensions for volume .
Using Hair Extensions for Volume
While hair extensions are mostly known to instantly extend your strands, they can also be worn to make your hair more voluminous. And if you’re unsure which hair extensions would be best for your #HairGoals, then this list is for you.
1. Clip-in Extensions
Widely used for many reasons, Clip-in Hair Extensions are usually the first choice when choosing hair extensions. They’re very easy to apply and remove, even if you decide to go the DIY route.
You only need half an hour of additional time to have bulkier and livelier hair. It’s also a great option for beginners since you don’t need much knowledge, time, and effort in order to get the job done.
2. Tape-in Extensions
As the name implies, Tape-in Extensions are hair extensions that use tapes to get attached to your hair. A thin strip of your hair is sandwiched in between two pieces of tape-in extensions and laid flat against your head and as close to the roots as possible.
Because tape-ins use adhesives, you can easily cut longer pieces to make them into shorter pieces, depending on where you want to apply them. This gives you enough flexibility when adding volume to your hair. They’re also much easier to hide since the tapes themselves lie flat on your scalp.
3. Halo Extensions
Halo Hair Extensions aren’t attached to your strands in any way. Instead, it sits on a very thin and almost invisible wire that you wear on your head like a headband. Also, it only takes a minute or two to wear. You can even hide the wire underneath the top section of your hair to make it completely unnoticeable.
However, unlike the other types of extensions on this list, halos offer limited customizability. If you have thinning hair on certain portions of your head, such as the top, you won’t be able to concentrate the additional volume on just that part.
4. Ponytail Extensions
Ponytail Hair Extensions, like the name implies, are made specifically for ponytail hairstyles. It’s a variant of the clip-in extensions that are perfect for clipping onto your own hair’s ponytail.
While the classic pony is a go-to hairstyle for many people, more volume would mean more life to your ponytail hairdo.
As you can see, there’s no need to worry about not having enough volume to pull of that dream hairstyle of yours. Thanks to hair extensions, you can instantly transform from drab to fab!
