Clip extensions can be a nightmare for some users. If you don't know how to use them properly, then you’ll find yourself torturing your hair just to attach them. But it is common to get nervous when it comes to these accessories. Not all people are familiar with them. So, in this post, let’s look at the ways to use them properly. 

The Easy Way to Use Clip Extensions

Before learning how to use them, make sure you prepare them for use. Preparation starts when you buy them. If you don’t have these accessories yet, make sure to buy a set first. One of the things to consider when buying clip extensions is the color of your hair. You must ensure that they match your natural hair color. If you can’t find any, then you can just choose to dye them. However, make sure that they are made from real hair. Otherwise, you’ll just damage the hair. 

Once you have these extensions, you may brush the hair from the end to detangle them. If they are knotted, use a wide-toothed comb first before brushing. You may only apply a heat protectant if the extensions are made for real human hair. On the other hand, if they are made of synthetic fibers, make sure to read the package to find out whether or not they are heat-resistant. Keep in mind that synthetic fibers may melt. 

Apply the Extensions 

To apply these extensions, first section the hair below your ears. Use a rat-tail comb to do it. Pull everything above it up into a bun. Start inserting the weft of the extension into your hair, below the part. Snap open the clips on your weft. Then, position it right over the horizontal part before sliding the combos into your hair. 

Since clip extensions are different, make sure to read the package to know the best way to apply these accessories.

Short or Thin Hair 

If you have short hair, then clip extensions are ideal to make your hair look longer. But make sure that the extensions’ color matches your natural hair color. Otherwise, the difference will be obvious. You may also trim the extensions after inserting them into your hair. But do it only when necessary. 

Another trick here is to use a shade lighter. This is especially useful if you want an ombre effect. To do it, make sure to go one to two shades lighter. If the hair ends are lighter, match the extensions to them. 

You may use hairspray if the extensions keep slipping. Before adding the extensions, you must allow the hairspray to dry first. To match the hair texture, curl or straighten these hair accessories. 

After you are done using your clip extensions, make sure to remove them before going to bed. Wearing them to sleep will only snag on your ear and may cause bald spots. To know more about these hair accessories, you may visit our blog or shop our extensions here.
