How To Use Clip In Hair Extensions
Clip in hair extensions are the perfect option for getting long hair without the commitment. But with so many clips and those tricky back parts ruining the perfect blend, we know buying a full set can be daunting.
To make things easier, we’ve made the ultimate clip in hair extension guide from buying to applying so you can get long, beautiful lengths sooner.
So, if you’re ready for a long hair transformation, read on!
Are Clip In Extensions Easy To Apply?
One of the great things about clip in hair extensions is how easy they are to use, with application under 10 minutes!
Each piece has clips attached to the lace, which holds onto the hair creating instant length and volume. Just click and close the hair clips.
They also allow for more versatile styling options, and if you get sick of them, just unclip and take them out!
It does take some practice to get the clip in hair extensions to blend perfectly into the hair, but don’t worry, it’s not as hard as you think.
Are Clip In Extensions Comfortable?
Thanks to their temporary nature, clip in extensions are one of the most comfortable, hair-friendly extension methods. But like everything, hair strain can happen with overuse.
We recommend not sleeping in your hair extensions and taking care with all-day use, especially with weaker, finer hair types. It’s good to take a break every now and then to avoid tension at the scalp.
How To Apply Clip In Extensions
Application is easy with these 5 simple steps:
- At the nape of your neck, section off 1.5cm of hair using a tail comb and clip the rest out of the way.
- Apply your first piece along the section, starting with the middle clip and working out outwards.
- Continue through the rest of your hair, with each piece applied approximately 1cm above the last.
- Start with the 2x three clip piece, then the five clip piece.
- Finish your look with the two clip piece to fill in layers.
The order of application may vary, but these steps are generally the best method. For a ponytail look, repeat these steps but with the pieces turned upside down for an easy, up-do hairstyle.
Where Can I Buy Clip In Extensions?
Quality is EVERYTHING when it comes to clip in hair extensions, especially if you want realistic lengths, so we recommend these 100% Remy Human Hair Clip In Extensions.
Remy hair is the best quality hair on the market and is essential if you want to avoid matting and tangling. Since the hair cuticle travels in the same direction from root to tip, the hair appears smoother and shinier and is less likely to knot.
How Many Pieces Do I Need For A Full Head?
Approximately 7 – 9 pieces are recommended for a full head of hair, but if you want a full, thick look, you can purchase a few extra pieces.
How Long Can I Wear My Clip Ins?
Clip in extensions can be worn all day, depending on your hair type, and can last up to a year depending on how well you look after them.
We recommend regular brushing with a soft loop brush and washing your clip in hair extensions once a week with moisturising, sulphate-free products like our Charcoal Revitalising Shampoo.
But make sure you don’t wear your clip in hair extensions while washing! This will damage your extensions as well as causing extra strain to your own lengths.
Caring for your extensions should be as important as caring for your own hair.
