Individual Keratin Shrink Links
Although this technique does involve glue, if they're installed and removed correctly, IKSL can be a great option.
The investment is worth it since you don't tighten IKSL. They are installed and left to grow with your hair for 1-6 months, then I can safely remove them when you're ready.

Pros and Cons
Great for fine-medium hair
Easy to put in a pony tail. These hide well in a ponytail because they're so small.
Don't need to be tightened, so they're great for clients who live far away.
"Individual hair" runs on the finer side, so you may need to add on extra strands to get the thickness you desire
These involve glue, so if you don't take care of them you could risk damage to your hair. It's also essential to get them put in and taken out by me to ensure minimal hair damage.
Can't be tightened, so clients who like the feeling of tight extensions probably wouldn't like these.
