Single Drawn vs. Double Drawn Flat Tip Extensions
You have probably heard the terms double and single drawn hair. Here’s the difference. Double drawn means all the shorter hairs from the bundles have been removed by hand. The result is equally long and dense strands, from the roots to the very ends, which looks amazing. However, single drawn hair has not been processed the same way, so you get hairs of different lengths which results in unequally dense hair and thin ends.

Cheap Remy Options Available
Flat tips come in many different forms and the main distinction is between different hair types. You can get human hair flat tips, including Remy hair. Because of their low quality and unrealistic look, synthetic extensions are rarely used anymore. Human hair extensions have gotten pretty cheap and are affordable to almost everyone so there is really no reason for using synthetic strands.
Adding Length and Density Is Easy
Adding 20 inches of length to your locks might have seemed impossible twenty or thirty years ago, but it is such a simple task nowadays. Flat tips come in all kind of different lengths so it’s totally up to you how much you want to extend your locks. Density is also a key factor in creating a stunning hairstyle. Those who have naturally thin and fine strands know how hard it is to style them and make them look fuller. When you add flat tip strands, you get an amazing amount of sheer volume that is instantly noticeable.
Increase in Styling Options
Once you get that desired density and luscious long tresses, you suddenly realize that you’re not stuck with the same boring styles for thin or short hair anymore. Now you’re one of the cool girls with beautiful full locks and have so many different hairstyles to choose from.

Long hair allows you to try literally anything, so you don’t have to be frustrated when watching those amazing YouTube hair tutorials. Flat tips allow you to be that girl.
Rather Easy to Install
Although flat tips are certainly not the easiest extensions to install, the process is still simple and can be done at home with some help from your friend. This way, you save a lot of money that would otherwise bet spent at a salon.
Very Secure if Handled Correctly
Because of the installation method, once the flat tips are applied, there is almost no chance of them falling off. The bond is very strong and holds the strands together tightly. So, if you maintain and care for the flat tips, you don’t have to worry about them coming off, and simply enjoy your new strands.
Incredibly Comfortable to Wear
Flat tips come in individual strands which, when applied, are much more comfortable to wear than big wefts. They become so integrated with real strands that you can barely feel them after a while. If you do feel like the extensions are uncomfortable or any kind of strain or pain, that means that the flat tips were probably installed too close to the scalp. If that’s the case, remove them and re-apply.
Many women love using flat tips because they’re a semi-permanent method, unlike clip-in is, for example. The semi-permanent nature of this extensions is particularly appealing to busy women who don’t have time to install and remove wefts every single day.
Can Be Reused
Although the flat tips need to be removed and reinstalled every two to four weeks, you can still use the same hair multiple times. That’s a big plus because having to buy new extensions every month would be very expensive. If you want something that is easier to install on your own, consider invisible tape extensions.
It might seem like flat tips are a lot of work, but that’s actually not the case at all. This type of extensions are pretty low maintenance you can treat them pretty much like your own tresses. Just don’t pull or tug on them and you should be fine. It is enough to wash them two times a day and brush to remove any tangles or frizz.
Since flat tips have a unique flat shape, it is almost impossible to detect them. They lay completely flat against the head and are very tiny. So if those who are looking for an extension method that is truly invisible, definitely consider flat tips.
The Cons of Flat Tip Hair Extensions
We don’t want to simply praise flat tip extensions without mentioning some of the less positive aspects, here are some of their cons.
More Suitable for Advanced Users
Although anybody can learn to install flat tip extensions, more advanced user will find it much easier. Once the flat tips are applied to the strands, it’s not so easy to remove them so applying them correctly the first time is crucial. Those who are not so confident in their skills are better off going to a salon and having it done professionally.
Need to Be Refitted
Currently, there are no extension methods that you can simply install and never have to take off again. Be it hair wefts, tape ins or keratin hair. Flat tips are no exception and although they’re considered to be a more permanent extension method, they still need to be occasionally refitted. When the flat tips are applied to the natural strands, they move along with them as they grow. The more the strands grow, the more flat tips become visible because they’re pushed down. That’s why they need to be refitted every four to eight weeks, depending on the speed of hair growth.
Can Come Off
Although this happens very rarely, sometimes the flat tips can come off. This usually happens when people don’t follow the maintenance instructions and somehow damage the tips. Aggressive scrubbing around the scalp area might result in the tips getting loose and eventually falling off. So be careful when washing the extensions and scrub gently. Another way to damage the flat tips is by aggressive brushing or pulling. Any strong force applied to the tips might result in detachment.
How to Install Flat Tip Hair Extensions?
Flat tips are pretty easy to install, you can even try to do it yourself. If this is your first time, you can ask a friend to give you a hand. Here’s the process:
1. Start by parting your hair. The flat tips will be in horizontal rows, starting from the bottom and going up, so that’s how you should part your hair. Begin with the first section at the nape of your neck and move upwards from that.
2. Now that you have your horizontal parting, you need to separate a very small section of hair that will touch the tip. If the strand is too big because it will not cover the entire tip.
3. Now is the time to insert the flat tip. Place it underneath your natural strand and hold them both together with your fingers.
5. Check if the placement of the tip is right, because it shouldn’t be too close to the roots. If it is, move everything down slightly.
6. Use the hot pliers to melt the glue and ensure it is properly closed.
7. Repeat these steps on other strands, going up one row each time. Don’t place the tips too close to the top part of your strands so that you avoid visibility.
If you need more help or don’t want to do it yourself, contact your hair professional.
Maintaining Flat Tip Hair Extensions
As with your natural strands, you need to take proper care of the flat tip extensions. That way, your locks will look perfect and you will increase the lifespan of your extensions. Here are some useful maintenance tips:
1. Tangling and matting is what damages extensions the most. That why you should comb through them regularly, at least two times a day and before and after every wash.
2. Washing flat tips is similar to washing your real hair. The only difference is that you should be careful what shampoo you use (we recommend a very mild shampoo) and that you avoid too much scrubbing and pulling. Massage your scalp gently, being aware of the tips, and don’t tug on the hair.
3. To make your new locks look extra shiny and silky, use a leave in conditioner but avoid putting it on the roots because that can make your hair greasy.
4. Always try to wash your hair so that you have time to dry it naturally. If you are in a big hurry, use a blow dryer, but apply a heat protectant beforehand. We recommend that you do the same when using hot tools like a curling or straightening iron.
5. You can style your flat tip extensions any way you want to. Because of the flat tips, you can put your hair up, down, on the side, and still nothing will be visible.
6. We recommend that you braid your locks for sleeping or tie a silk scarf. That will prevent tangling and damage to the extensions.
If you need more flat tip maintenance advice, ask your hair professional for help.
