Hey Boutique Babes! Alyssa here to talk about what types of extensions are safe for baby fine hair...
Halo extensions are 100% safe for all hair types, but especially for fine hair! This is mainly because halo extensions don't attach to your hair at all. In fact, they sit on top of your hair. See-- a halo extension is a thicker weft of hair on an adjustable clear string so the hair just rests on your hair. These are super awesome if you're not sure about the commitment of extensions as well! These will do absolutely no damage and are made to be taken out at the end of each day.
Hand Tied Extensions
As many of you know, Brooke Bauer Boutique rebranded last year as a salon + extension loft. As a whole, our extension specialty is hand tied. Hand tied extensions are extremely versatile and good for many different hair types including fine hair! As someone who has very fine hair, I know first hand how scary it can be getting extensions. There’s so many questions like “will they be too heavy?” “will they look fake?” “will they damage my hair?” But I'm here to put all these questions to rest.
Will they be too heavy?
Your stylist is trained in being able to tell how many wefts your hair is able to handle. Another thing to remember is to not leave your hair wet after washing your extensions. Wet hair is always heavier then dry hair so always remember to blow dry right away! Move ups are typically between 6-8 weeks, sometimes as your hair grows out the extensions can cause a bit of tension. It's completely normal because like I said-- your hair is growing so naturally your extensions are shifting downward as well. I recommend mini move ups for my fine haired friends. This way at the 4 week mark you can get them moved up nice and snug and they won't have the potential to feel heavy!
Will they look fake?
I'm sure this is something many of you are nervous about. Going from fine to full can feel drastic but I promise you between custom coloring + custom cutting it will look like you were born with this hair!
Will they damage my hair?
As long as you are going to a trained professional and doing your part at home you wont experience any damage!
