How To Hide Hair Extensions In Thin Hair?

Hiding hair extensions in thin hair can be a bit challenging, especially hiding the clips and wefts, but with the right techniques and tools, it can be done.
Here are some tips and tricks to help you achieve a natural-looking blend:

  • Tip 1: Choose the right hair extensions

First of all, make sure the hair extensions you buy are made of 100% human hair. Human hair is more realistic than synthetic hair both in appearance and touch. Human hair extensions tend to blend in better with your natural hair and look more natural.

Secondly, opt for extensions that are close to your natural hair color and texture so that the hair extensions can blend well with your natural hair. It's a good idea to match your hair extensions to the ends of your natural hair. This is because the ends of your hair tend to be lighter than the roots. This can also help your hair extensions to blend in seamlessly.

Thirdly, hair extensions come in different lengths and textures, so choose a length and texture that matches your natural hair. If your hair is short, go for short hair extensions. If your hair is wavy or curly, choose extensions with a similar texture. Consider the length and thickness of your natural hair and select extensions that will blend in well. 

Furthermore, looking for hair extension pieces that are thin and lightweight. This will help to create a seamless blend between your natural hair and the extensions. 

By the way, if you're unsure about which hair extensions to choose, feel free to reach our online consultants. They can help you choose the right type, color, texture, and length of hair extensions that will perfectly blend with your natural hair.

  • Tip 2: Avoid wearing full-head hair extensions

Since girls with thin hair, they don't have so much natural hair to cover or conceal the extensions. Feel free to chat with our sale consultant to decide how many hair extension pieces you need for a natural blending.

  • Tip 3: Blend the hair extensions

After attaching your hair extensions, make sure to blend them in with your natural hair using combs and styling tools. 

You can use a root blending technique to make the extension blend with your natural hair roots. To do this, create a zigzag part on your hairline and clip the extension to your hair, so the clip is not visible. Or you can use styling tools to curl or straighten your hair to blend the extensions with your natural hair. Be noted that set the heat styling tools at the lowest heat setting and spray a heat protector before applying heat to your natural hair.

  • Tip 4: Avoid clip hair extension too close to the scalp or too high on the crown

Since thin hair ladies don't have so much natural hair to cover and conceal the points that attach hair extensions. Position your hair extensions a bit further down to achieve a more natural result.

  • Tip 5: Let the installation be done by a pro

If you are a beginner, letting the installation be done by a pro can help to achieve a more seamless appearance. Additionally, your stylist can also give you advice on how to style your hair to help conceal the extensions.

  • Tip 6: Opt for hairstyles that help to hide extensions

Style your hair in a way that will help to conceal the extensions. For example, you can create loose waves or a messy updo to help hide the seams. Here are some recommended hairstyles that help to hide extensions:

  1. Low ponytail: A low ponytail is an excellent way to conceal the attachment points of your hair extensions.
  2. Side braid: A loose side braid can help hide your extensions while still looking stylish.
  3. Half up/half down style: This hairstyle can help hide any extension attachment points that may be visible. Furthermore, this style can not only help to hide hair extensions but also create a fuller look.
  4. Messy bun: A messy bun is a great way to conceal any extension clips or attachment points, while still looking chic and trendy.
  5. Beachy waves: Loose, tousled beachy waves can help to blend in your extensions, making them less noticeable.
  6. Side-swept bangs: If you have hair extensions near your hairline, side-swept bangs can help to conceal them and make them blend in better with your natural hair.

Remember, it's always best to consult with your stylist to determine the best hairstyle for your particular type of extensions and hair.

  • Tip 7: Use hair-friendly products

Avoid using heavy products that can weigh down your hair, as this will make it more difficult to hide the extensions. Instead, opt for lightweight products such as volumizing sprays or volumizing dry shampoos. Use styling products like hair oil or serum to help blend the extensions with your natural hair. Apply a small amount of the product to the ends of your hair to smooth and blend them.

  • Tip 8: Consider getting a professional haircut

Layering your extensions will help them blend in more naturally with your natural hair. Use a pair of sharp scissors to thin out the extensions if they look too bulky. It's recommended to visit the salon and ask your stylist to make a professional haircut. A professional haircut can help to blend the extensions into your natural hair. Your stylist can also give you advice on how to style your hair to help conceal the extensions.
