Want to know the simple tricks to applying clip ins the proper way? Read on to find out.
1. Prepare everything you need
Before you start clipping those extensions into your hair, make sure first that you have already prepared all the necessary materials to avoid any delays and hassle. When you install a clip on extension, you need to have a set of clip in extensions, a tail comb, hair brush, mini elastic bands and hair clips.
2. Match the texture of your natural hair to your extensions
Once you’re done preparing the things you need, proceed to washing and styling your natural locks to match it with your extension. Consider washing your extensions as well since most of them are coated with extra glossy finish that would make them noticeable once you attach them your hair. Only use a gentle sulphate free moisturising shampoo. Don’t forget apply conditioner afterwards.
3. Group the wefts
Take out the wefts and group those with the same number of clips. Group together wefts that have four clips and then make another group for those with three clips, and so on. Carefully lay them on top of the table or hang them so that you can easily get them by the time you start installing the wefts one by one.
4. Separate your hair into two sections
Part your hair into upper and lower sections using a tail comb. Start at your left temple, create a straight line until you reach your right temple. Then, secure the upper portion with a clip. If you have fine or super straight hair, tease it first at the bottom using a fine-toothed comb. Doing so helps keep the clips from slipping out.
5. Attach the wefts
Choose the weft that perfectly fits to that certain section of your hair. Most likely you will start with a three clip or perhaps a two clip weft. Be sure to keep the clips open. With the help of mini elastic bands, make two sections of your hair with the same distance as the clips attached to the weft. The rubber elastic bands secure the clips and prevent slippage. Gently place the wefts one at a time securing each clip onto the elastic band. Push it down and then carefully press it on your scalp and then clip it. You will hear a tiny snap which indicates that the clips are securely attached. About a half inch above the first attached weft, part a new section of your hair and then do then follow the same steps you did with the first weft. Make sure to always pick the appropriate weft size that best fits that certain section of your head.
6. Smoothen out hair
Once you’re done, take down the rest of your tresses. Don’t forget to smoothen it out with your fingers or a brush then style it as desired.
