To minimize the risk of slippage with micro loops hair extensions, it's recommended to have a certain amount of natural hair length to provide a secure foundation for the attachment. While exact lengths can vary depending on factors such as hair texture and the specific extension method, here are some general guidelines to help prevent slippage:
Micro Loops: This gives the rings enough hair to hold onto securely. Micro-loops are slightly larger than nano rings, usually around 4-5mm in diameter. For micro-loops, a natural hair length of around 4-5 inches (10-12.5 cm) is typically recommended.
However, keep in mind that hair texture and thickness can also play a role. If you have fine or slippery hair, you might need slightly longer natural hair length to ensure a secure attachment. Additionally, the skill and experience of the stylist in applying the extensions can also influence how well they stay in place.
