When it comes to wearing extensions, most experts highly recommend that you wear a length that is not too far from the original length of your natural locks. This greatly helps in seamlessly blending your extension with your natural tresses. There are a variety of lengths available, there are 14, 16, 18, 20, 22 and 24 inch extensions. If you’re currently rocking a set of 16 inch clip extensions, here are easy and effective ways you can easily do to keep them in good shape for as long as possible.
1. Wash and Condition
Overtime, they acquire dirt that could cause them to appear dull and matte which in turn can ruin the wefts and strands. You can prevent such by washing them when necessary. Make sure to use a paraben-free moisturising shampoo and don’t forget to apply conditioner afterwards to lock in moisture and shine to the strands. Since,your extensions don’t acquire the same natural oils and nutrients your own natural hair does, it is recommended to shampoo them sparingly, at least after every six to eight uses to avoid drying them out. You may consider applying a deep conditioner once a month as well to keep it looking healthy and shiny.
2. Leave to air dry
After washing, leave them to air dry. Avoid using heat styling tools such blow dryers, curling irons, and straightening irons to extend the life of your extensions. It is recommended to wash them in the evening and leave them to dry overnight on a towel so you may be able to use them right away the next day.
3. Do not sleep with it on
As much as possible avoid sleeping with your clip in extension on. Clip ins, unlike other types of extensions are easier to apply and remove. They are made for less permanent purposes, so you can easily detach them whenever you need to. Wearing them while you sleep easily roughs up the tips of the strands. Right before you go to bed, make sure to carefully take them off making sure there are no tangled strands.
4. Hair spray is a no no
Hair spray and other hair styling products have chemical ingredients that can cause damage to your clip extensions. So, as much as possible avoid using them on your wefts. If you really have to use such products, carefully apply them on your natural locks making sure you don’t directly apply them on the wefts.
5. Store in a safe place
Once you remove your clip ins, place them right away in a bag or hang the to avoid any tangles. In this way, you can also retrieve them without hassle the next time you’re going to use them again.
