When deciding what hair extensions to buy, there are a few factors that need to be considered in order to get the set that best suits your preferences and needs. People often ask how long do extensions last and here you'll find just the right answer.

Clip-ins are the most popular type of hair extensions, as they can be clipped in and out any time, with zero damage. The best clip in hair extensions can last 3 to 6 months with normal wear (almost daily), sometimes even a year if worn less often and properly taken care of.
The classic clip ins have a fabric or stitch base while the invisible hair extensions have a thin silicone base. These human hair clip ins are ideal for people with thin, fine, or oily hair because of the thin seam that makes them virtually undetectable and they last as much as the classic ones.
The most popular so-called permanent hair extensions are micro-links. They are a big commitment, as they will remain bonded into your hair up to 3-4 months and they will most likely cause hair damage when removed. Other popular permanent hair extensions are: fusion hair extensions, beaded hair extensions and sew-in hair extensions.
Out of these categories, the easiest and most user-friendly are the clip in natural hair extensions, which we recommend for first time users and pros alike. It is difficult to set a clear expiration date to your clip in hair, as their lifespan will depend a lot on how well you care for them.

With a little care and attention, you can make sure that your real hair extensions last a long time and are healthy. Make sure to store them in a dry place, away from direct sunlight. Don't wash them too often. Always use sulfate-free products and heat protectant prior to styling them with hot tools. For a full guide on how to take care of hair extensions, click here.
