Let’s call it out, there are a gazillion types of extensions and we’re sure you’re confused about which ones work for you! And we’re sure you may have heard about the different kinds of tape-ins, Clip-ins, the pre-bonded variety and the micro-links. Today, we thought about helping you draw a comparison between Sew-In and Clip-In extensions! Yes, you got that right, we know you have been waiting for this debate to end (and aren’t we all!) So, without any further ado, here’s what we think about them.
We are all aware of the basic bit that these extensions are attached at the base with plastic or silicon and come in strands of contoured pieces, ready to use! They are not only easy to attach, but these extensions are also inexpensive. And while clip-on extensions make our lives so much easier, it’s important to remember that these are temporary hair extensions, not for prolonged use. You might think they do not cause any damage, but think again. The fact remains that if not clipped in properly, these babies can cause some serious damage leading to hair breakage. Also, one of the cons to clip in extensions is that they tend to be visible when used with finer hair textures.
A sew-in extension is attached by braiding the natural hair with cornrows first, then using a needle and thread to sew the weave into the braid. But no matter how much you love wearing these extensions, it is recommended that you keep them on no longer than 6 to 8 weeks. The one benefit of these beauties is that it blends in well with your natural hair. We find that just amazing! And yes of course, they are also easy to maintain!
Having tried and tested both variants, you can take it from us that in this war of decisions between Sew-in v/s Clip-on extensions, the Sew-in hair extensions win hands down; only because its pros outweigh the cons.
