Clip-In Hair Extensions vs. Sew-In Hair Extensions

In today’s day and age, convenience is a priority for most. This is especially true for women who are constantly on the go and don’t have hours to devote to styling their hair each morning. If you’re not quite into wigs, but still want some convenience, this post is for you.

Clip-In Extensions

Clip-in extensions are just hair extensions with clips sewn to the wefts for easy installation and removal. This option is best for short-term and/or occasional wear because they’re super easy to put in and tend to work well with all types of hair lengths and colors. This method is also the least permanent and allows your natural hair to breathe whenever you see fit to remove the extensions. Clip-in extensions can last from three months to an entire year with proper care.

Sew-In Extensions

Sew-in extensions require your natural hair to be braided to the scalp; your hair extensions are then sewn to the braids for a seamless look. Because this is a more “permanent” style, it’s important to have your braids retightened every six weeks. This ensures the extensions remain secure and that your natural hair receives the cleansing it needs. Additionally, you’ll want to moisturize your scalp, edges and nape weekly to keep your natural hair in good health.

Whatever your hair extension needs may be, clip-in and sew-in extensions have both proven to be great for any occasion. What’s your favorite go-to extension style when it comes to sprucing up your natural hair?
