Cons of hair extensions

Visible (if not attached correctly)

Sometimes when clip-ins are not attached properly, the clips are visible at the roots and not sit properly flat against the scalp. Youtube is filled with clip-in hair extension tutorials. You can watch and learn from Youtube so that the results look natural. If you want a ponytail or high buns, then clip-in hair extensions are not good for you. 


Clip-ins can solve our hair problems, but this solution is temporary; they don’t offer permanent solutions. When you wear them every day in the same position, you will feel stress and tense all day. Clip-in hair extensions are not for those who want a permanent solution. 

Needs Good Care

Clip-in hair extensions can be reused if you took wonderful care of your hair extension. Always remember to remove extensions before sleep or take a shower. The life of clip-in hair extension can range between 3 to 6 months to a year or longer, depending on the care they receive. Extra heat style and wash can damage your extensions, so try to keep the washing and using products on your extensions to a minimum. 


Unlike your natural hair, extensions don’t have natural moisture, so always try to moisturise them. Clip-in extensions blend smoothly into your hair, so no one can know your secret. Looking good every day is not easy; if you are using clip-in extension every day, then it’s necessary to uninstall and wash them every night before going to sleep.
