The Best Remy Clip In Hair Extensions Reviewed
In this section, I will go over my top picks and their detailed reviews.
- Key features: 100% Remy human hair, 7 pieces, double drawn, durable weft
- Extension length: 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22 inches
- Volume: 120 grams per pack
- Best for: Overall
GooGoo Remy Hair Extensions are a brand name you can trust. They excel at providing gorgeous hair and are incredibly focused on quality and durability.
From the double drawn wefts to the secure clips, the whole pack is just phenomenal quality. Because the Remy human hair is such good quality and not processed to death, the hair stands up to heat styling and everyday use.
The clips are good and hold the wefts securely to your head without any tell-tale bumps or raising of the wefts. The clips also feel secure, so if you have a long day ahead of you, these clips will keep up.
As most extension providers tend to do, GooGoo offers these extensions in 14 inches – 22 inches in length.
If you are going for a length that is well beyond your hairline, say from a shoulder-length bob to waist-length luscious locks, then I would strongly suggest getting 2 packs. If your hair is a similar length, and you are just looking to add volume, then 1 pack is fine.
These extensions are the priciest on this list and whereas they are good value as the longevity they give makes them affordable over the year or so of wear you will get out of them, the initial investment can be a little costly.
- Key features: 100% Remy human hair, 7 wefts with silicone clips
- Extension length: 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24 inches
- Volume: 110 grams per pack
- Best for: Fine Hair
These Maxfull hair extensions have incredibly fine wefts. They are almost as thin as tape-in wefts. This is important as when you are head of the Fine Hair Club (like me), the wefts don’t stick out, and even with very little hair, the extensions are practically invisible.
They also have thin, silicone-coated clips attached to them, taking careful consideration to placing the clips right at the end of the wefts. This is brilliant as one, the silicone coated clips are very secure in your hair without being damaging.
And secondly, as the clips are so close to the end of the weft, they can’t curl up and give your long-hair game away!
MaxFull as a company has created a wonderful product that is a little cheaper than the GooGoo hair, and you still get excellent quality hair that with proper care can last you up to a year.
The only thing to be aware of is if you have fine hair, but lots of it, you will need a second pack. This hair is perfect for fine-haired humans, but at 110 grams, it isn’t a lot of hair. To get that extra full glam look, you usually need about 200 grams of hair, and that means a second pack.
- Key features: 100% Remy human hair, thick to ends
- Extension length: 20 and 22 inches
- Volume: 160 grams per pack
- Best for: Thick Hair
Now if you have thick hair then this big hitter is your go-to! Weighing in at an impressive 160 grams, these extensions will add length and volume with just one pack!
If you have incredibly thick hair, then you may still need two packs (and I am very jealous), but I would suggest contacting customer service and asking.
Tressmatch is very proud that their hair is thick to the ends and double drawn. What this usually means is that they usually get hair that is 24 to 26 inches long and cut it down to the length you order. As hair is naturally thinner to the ends, this circumnavigates that.
It is a costly exercise on their part, but the result is long, thick hair from root to tip!
One thing to note is that with such thick hair, the wefts can be quite thick too. This isn’t a problem if your natural hair is long and quite thick itself.
However, if you are a fine-haired human, like me, you will have to backcomb your hair and place your wefts carefully. Plus, finishing with some firm hold hair spray wouldn’t go amiss either!
- Key features: 100% Remy human hair, Free stylist consultation
- Extension length: 14, 16, 18, 20, and 22 inches
- Volume: 120 grams per pack
- Best for: Ombré Hair
Ombré hair colors are a hot trend that isn’t going away. With celebrities and models like Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Rihanna sporting these gorgeous styles, over the years it’s no surprise that ombré hair has become and remained so popular.
Another reason is if you work with your natural hair color, it is SO EASY to maintain!
Hotbanana has honed its offering to gorgeous ombre hair extensions that come in a range of different ombre colors, so most people will find what they need straight off the rack.
However, if you aren’t sure, they offer a free stylist consultation, so you can get exactly what you need – first time.
Coming in at 120 grams of hair per pack and a wide range of lengths, these ombré extensions are versatile and should suit most people.
Another great thing with ombré hair extensions is if you color match the top color of the ombré to your natural hair color (or the color your hair currently is), you can have an ombré effect without having to color your hair – look here!
As these extensions have been color-treated, they are less versatile when you change your hair color. Most extensions you can get away with coloring after purchase, but with these, I would be wary as you might end up with a dried, tangled mess. So you need to commit to the color for a little while when purchasing these.
Guide to Remy Clip In Hair Extensions
When buying clip in hair extensions, there are a few key things to keep in mind.
High Value Option
If cost is a motivator for you, rather get better quality hair extensions that are shorter over getting longer hair extensions that are of poorer quality. Not only will your hair look better, but it will also last longer this way.
Look for clips that have a silicone coating. It is such a small thing, but I personally find that the coating makes a massive difference in terms of the durability of the clips, and the duration of how long I can wear the hair.
When in Doubt – ASK!
Most of the brands selling the clips to you have factories that are either onsite or they are in direct communication with. If you need thicker, longer, lighter hair, a custom blend of colors, or something else, they are usually delighted to help you, and generally, it’s for free too!
More is… well, more! Especially if you are adding length and volume. Try and get a second set so you have the flexibility to utilize the extensions as you need them, and you aren’t left with too little hair. You want to nail that seamless blend from the get-go!
If I had to pick just one set of clip-ins from the luscious list of trustworthy hair then it would easily be the GooGoo clip in extension set. Great hair, sturdy clips, true colors, and phenomenal customer service.
I mean, what more could you possibly ask for?!
