How long dark brown clip in human hair extensions  last, how to care for them, and how to keep them looking their best are some of the questions we'll answer in this guide to extensions. 

Pre-Bonded Hair Extensions (3-4 MONTHS) 

With a gadget that resembles a hot glue gun, Fusion hair extensions or pre-bonded hair extensions are connected at the root of the hair. The hair is attached to the existing strands using a hot instrument for a fuller, more natural appearance. 

Do They Last For A Long Time? 

For the most part, fusion bonds can endure between three and four months, depending on how well they are treated. These extensions are attached at the root, which means you'll need to wash your hair, style it with heat tools, and use the proper brush. 

My pre-bonded hair extensions have started to fall out. What can I do? 

Sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, argan/Moroccan oil for the mid-lengths and ends, and a conditioning mask treatment are ideal. Before using any heated tool, make sure to put on heat protection. Using a soft bristle brush, work your way from the bottom of the hair to the top rather than the root to the end to get the best results. 

Install hair extensions by sewing them in place (6-8 weeks) 

First, you'll need to braid your natural hair into cornrows and then use a needle and thread to sew your new hair extensions into the braids. Hair extensions that are sewed into thicker hair tend to be preferred by those who want a more natural look. 

Do They Last For A Long Time? 

You may expect to get 6-8 weeks of use out of a set of hair extensions attached to your hair. You should only wear a full weave for a maximum of three months to avoid stunting your hair's normal development. 

Sew-In Hair Extensions: How Do I Care For Them? 

At least once a week, use deep conditioning treatments to moisturize your weave's scalp, nape, and edges. This will maintain your Weave Hair Extension appearing healthy and natural. 

Extensions that are attached to the hair with tape (4-8 weeks) 

As the name implies, tape-in hair extensions are attached to your hair with adhesive weft tape. They don't require heat and allow your hair to grow naturally makes them a popular choice. 

Do They Last For A Long Time? 

Tape-in hair extensions can last anywhere from four to eight weeks, depending on how often you wear them. The same extensions can be taped back in for a new look if they are properly cared for. 

How Do I Care For My Hair Extensions' Tape Inside? 

Never use a comb or brush on your tape-in hair extensions if they are wet, as this is one of the most important safety precautions. Ensure they're thoroughly dried and brushed with a hair extension brush before using them. They'll last longer and appear more natural if you do this. 

Extensions that attach to the hair via a clip (3-6 months) 

Clip-ins are the most user-friendly and least damaging among the many available hair extension options. Clip-in extensions are available in strands with clips affixed to the base, making installation a cinch. 

Do They Last For A Long Time? 

If you use your clip-in hair extensions regularly and take good care of them, they can last anywhere from three months to a year or more. As with hair extensions, how well you take care of them is a factor. 

How Do I Care For Hair Extensions That Are Clip-In? 

It's best to wash them with natural, sulfate-free products after a few uses. If you don't dry them thoroughly before brushing them out, you risk damaging them and causing them to wear out more quickly. 

Rings at the nanoscale (3-4 months) 

Small sections of natural hair are used to attach the wefts of hair, which are attached to the wefts with a variety of sized beads (nanorings being the smallest on the market) There is no use of heat or glue in this procedure. 

Do They Last For A Long Time? 

Depending on how you take care of your extensions, they could last you up to four months. Because these beads are tied to your natural hair's roots, more care and natural products are required when caring for them. When it comes to micro-ring hair extensions, what should I look out for? 

As with fusion or pre-bonded extensions, micro link extensions will need to be relocated every 2-3 months as the natural hair moves the micro/nanobeads away from the scalp. You may style these extensions the same way your natural hair and use the same styling tools. 


Hair extensions can last anywhere from a few months to a few years, depending on the extension type and how well you care for it. A wig may be a preferable option in some circumstances.
