People are wondering about seamless clip in hair extensions as they are still a relatively new thing. Today APO Hair will help you to know more about this type of extensions which are being called a revolution.
What are seamless clip in hair extensions?
Seamless clip in hair extensions are the same as the classic clip in extensions but better with thin, seamless silicone wefts for ultimate comfort. They are bonded together with a silicone strip rather than being sewn onto a lace weft. The silicone helps the extensions stay neatly with your own hair without any shedding. Moreover, they don’t cause any shedding and they are really lightweight and comfortable to wear. The seamless wefts are thin, they will lay completely flat to your head, we can say that they are virtually undetectable. It is least damaging hair extensions for fine hair, and it is one of the high-value clip in hair extensions.
Who are seamless clip in hair extensions suitable for?
Seamless extensions are perfect for who has fine to normal hair as they are really lightweight and virtually undetectable. They can help you create sleek looks as the wefts lay flat to your head so you can get your hair to lie super smooth.
Can I dye seamless hair extensions?
You can dye your hair extensions as long as you have advices from stylists. It is also worth noting that because the top of the seamless wefts are bonded with silicone, they might not take the dye as well ad the classic lace wefts. The solution for this is use some root touch up spray as it sticks really well to the top of the seamless wefts and you can use this to create a faux root on your set too to match your natural hair growth.
What temperature can seamless hair extensions be styled at? Dose heat damage the base of the wefts?
We recommend setting your tool at 120C/250F degrees or lower while styling your seamless extensions as anything higher may run the risk of damaging the hair. This is because the hair is not being regenerated at the scalp like our own hair. Therefore, overtime excessive heat and high temperatures may cause wear and tear to your set and could potentially loosen the silicone bond with the hair. It could be generally said that heat will not damage the base of the weft unless it is very high.
Can I curl and straighten my hair extensions?
It depends on whether they are synthetic or natural. 100% Remy human hair can be curled, straightened, blow-dried and styled just like your own natural hair. Synthetic hair can’t do that. Seamless extensions are usually made by Remy human hair.
However, we suggest to always use a heat protectant spray or natural heat protectant while styling your extensions to preserve and extend the lifespan of them. Additionally, we recommend to only use a low heat setting of 120C/250F, as anything higher runs the risk of damaging the hair. While our own hair may be able to handle a high heat setting, our hair is also constantly getting revitalized from the scalp, whereas hair extensions don't get that sort of constant nutrition. Using a low heat setting will prolong the lifespan of your extensions.
Will my hair extensions be obvious to others?
If you clip your hair properly, they are virtually undetectable. The base of each weft is thin and flat, and all wefts come with sturdy clips with a silicone grip to keep each weft in place. The wefts are clipped in between layers of your own natural hair, to blend naturally and seamlessly.
