How to Add Volume to Thin Hair with Extensions
Having thin hair doesn’t have to mean you can’t have your dream hairstyle, or be stuck with limited style choices. Those of us with thin hair spend so much time trying create the illusion of thicker, fuller hair by blow drying and curling, applying volumizing products, and using shampoos and conditioners that are supposed to add oomph to our hair. And they do help - a little, but the only way to really look like we have more hair than we do is to actually have more hair. And that’s where extensions come in. Clip-Ins and halo crowns gives us the hair we wish we were born with, and literally make you feel like a goddess. We have the all the pro tips to help you add volume to thin hair using extensions, from choosing the right ones, how to apply them, and the best styling advice to take your look from so-so to stunning:
Adding Volume with Halo Crown® Extensions:
Halo extensions use a pliable invisible filament (similar to a fishing wire) to add length and thickness without using clips. They are lightweight, gentle on the hair and scalp, non-damaging, and easily attached and removed. There is no need for any attachment - the gravity of your own hair is what holds the hair piece in place. If you have a true halo designed extensions there is absolutely no reason to have clips on it - it defeats the purpose and can cause damage to your scalp. Choose the length of your extensions depending on the hair you have to begin with, it's best to add no longer than 4" from your own natural length unless you are blending the hair professionally with layers or adding a middle layer with another hair extension. And by the way, thinner hair is easiest to blend in with hair extensions! Our Daydream halo extensions in 100 to 110 grams is ideal for adding volume to thin hair looking natural, and our Halo Crown® in 12”, 16", 20" and 24" has super thick ends when you want that luxurious look.
Thicker Looking Hair with Hidden Crown Clip Ins:
Hidden Crown Clip Ins uses only 9 clips to achieve the same volume as other brands which use 18-22 clips. That means a lot less damage to your hair, and much less time putting them in and taking them out. Each set contains on 7.5” Volumizer with 3 clips, and two side pieces with 3 clips each. Hidden Crown Clip Ins are double drawn with tapered side pieces to blend seamlessly with your own hair for a natural look. Lengths start at 8" all the way to 26".
Pro Styling Tips to Create Maximum Volume:
- Prep hair ahead of time by applying a volumizing dry shampoo which helps the extensions have more hold on your hair
- Use a product such as Color Wow Style On Steroids to add volume and texture which helps the extensions to grip the hair without slipping, and secures them without back-combing
- Curling to add waves to your hairstyle will make it look fuller and thicker, much better than super straight styles
