Bring BEAUTY to your life



Hair extensions come in various styles, and understanding them all can be quite confusing, especially if you're new to it. From clip-ins and tape-ins to weaves and more, each type has its own features. WIGI Hair Extensions, for instance, are made of 100% remy human hair and come as clip-ins. But that's just one kind among many. Let's explore these different hair extensions to make things a bit clearer. Whether you're looking for a temporary fix with clip-ins or a more permanent solution like micro-links, there's something for everyone. And remember, no matter the method you choose, you can expect high-quality, 100% human hair from WIGI to give you that natural look and feel.

Real Human Hair Extensions vs. Synthetic Hair Extensions

When choosing hair extensions, it's important to know the difference between the two main types: real human hair extensions and synthetic hair extensions.

Let's take a look at the process of creating hair extensions.

Real human hair extensions are made from actual human hair. They're collected from people and are known as Remy hair. This means the hair's outer layer, or cuticles, are all facing the same way, which helps prevent tangles and keeps the hair smooth and soft for a long time.


Synthetic hair extensions, however, are made from different man-made fibres. They don't have any real human hair in them. These fibres are thin and plastic-like, designed to look like real hair.

Both types have their own benefits, but if you're looking for the most natural look and feel, 100% human hair extensions are the way to go. They blend in with your own hair and can be styled just like it.

Appearance and Texture

Hair extensions, whether they're made from real hair or synthetic materials, come in a variety of styles and colors. Synthetic extensions tend to be a bit stiffer and don't move the same way your own hair does, which can make them stand out. They might also feel rough or coarse. On the other hand, extensions made from 100% human hair, like those from WIGI, look and feel just like your own hair, blending seamlessly.


Styling and Maintenance

Extensions made from 100% human hair can be styled in any way you'd style your natural hair. You can use heat tools to straighten or curl them, and even dye them to match your hair color. Synthetic extensions, however, can't be colored because they can be damaged by the chemicals in hair dye. Heat styling tools are also off-limits for synthetic hair as they can melt or get damaged. They're also more sensitive to the sun and rough handling.

Durability and Lifespan

While synthetic hair extensions are more affordable, they don't last as long as 100% human hair extensions. Factors like sunlight and heat can quickly wear them out, and they typically only last a few months. In contrast, high-quality human hair extensions, such as those from WIGI, can last for a year or more with proper care, giving you a longer-lasting, natural look.

To sum it up, 100% human hair extensions from WIGI are just like your own hair. You can style them any way you want, and they blend in perfectly, giving you a natural look. They're also more durable and can last a long time. Synthetic hair might be less expensive, but it doesn't look as real, can't handle heat styling, and won't last as long.

With the basics of real and synthetic hair covered, let's dive into the various application methods for hair extensions!


Tape-In Hair Extensions

What are they?

Tape-in extensions are hairpieces that come with a sticky side. They are attached to your hair by placing them near the roots and sticking them on both sides of your hair. A professional usually puts them in because it's important to line them up right and use a tool that warms up the glue. When you want to take them out, you need a special remover for the glue, and then they can be put back in if they're still in good shape. Putting heat and glue on your hair can be tough on it, so it's something to think about. It takes about 40 minutes to an hour to put them in.


You need to be careful with tape-in extensions when you use things like conditioner or other hair products. These can make the tape lose its stickiness, and the extensions might slide out. That's why it's common for stylists to suggest using gentler shampoos and conditioners, as well as styling products that aren't too oily. This helps the tape stay on better. You can style tape-in extensions just like normal hair, but be careful around the glued parts.

Expected Duration

Tape-in extensions are kind of like a temporary fix for your hair. They usually stay for about 4 to 8 weeks. After that, you'll need to go back to the salon to get them taken out and put back in. How long they last really depends on how you take care of them and how fast your hair grows.

Clip-in Hair Extension


What are they?


Clip-in hair extensions are a convenient and temporary way to add length and volume to your hair. These extensions come in strands of contoured pieces, each attached to a base made of fabric or silicone. The clips on the base are easy to use; you simply snap them open, attach them to your natural hair, and click them shut. This method is quick and can be done at home in just 5 to 15 minutes.

One of the biggest advantages of clip-in hair extensions is that they are the least permanent and least damaging type of extensions. There's no need for chemicals, heat, or pressure during application, which means they are gentle on your hair. Plus, they can be removed just as easily as they are put in, making them a popular choice for those looking for flexibility and a natural look.


Caring for clip-in human hair extensions is easy. You don't need to wash them too often—just every 15-20 times you wear them, or if they get a lot of hair products on them. To wash them, it's like washing your own hair: brush, use shampoo and conditioner, and then let them dry naturally.

When you want to style your clip-in extensions, you can do it just like your hair. You can make them curly or straight, and even change their color. Just remember to use a low heat setting and put on some heat protectant before you use any hot tools. This helps keep the extensions looking good for a long time.

Expected Duration

The lifespan of clip-in hair extensions can vary. It all depends on how you look after them, the kind of products you use, and how often you wear them. If you take good care of them and wear them regularly, they can last from 3 to 6 months, and sometimes even up to a year or more.


U-shaped Clip-in Hair Extensions

What are they?

U-shaped clip-in hair extensions are a type of hair accessory designed to add volume and length to your hairstyle. They are called "U-shaped" because the base of the extension is shaped like a 'U', which allows it to fit comfortably around the head and blend seamlessly with natural hair. These extensions come with clips attached to the base, making them easy to secure in place without the need for professional help. They're a great option for those looking to enhance their look temporarily and can be easily removed at the end of the day.


To care for U-shaped clip-in hair extensions, gently brush them before and after use to prevent tangling. Wash them sparingly with a mild shampoo and condition lightly. Always air dry and store them flat or hang them up to maintain their shape. Avoid excessive heat and harsh styling products to keep them looking their best.

Expected Duration

U-shaped clip-in extensions can last from 3 to 6 months, up to a year or more, similar to regular clip-ins, with good care.  To keep your extensions in great shape for as long as possible, click here to follow some simple care instructions.
